My favorite project was called NINDY since the boss was always checking on schedule, NINDY = No Its Not Done Yet (thank you Abby)

Debugging a software Bus Interaction Module I found the Bus Output task, called BIMBO (thank you Brian)

Engineers have a GREAT sense of humour!

@Betajet: ...his full name is "Wamba, son of Witless"


That does have a certain ring to it -- I'll have to remember that... I'm sure it will come in handy one day :-)

The Wamba board

I also designed a very simple board called the "WAN Mini-Backplane" which replaced a couple of cables that connected WAN I/O modules with a base board.  I called it the "Wamba" board for short.  Wamba is my favorite character from Ivanhoe.  He's the court jester -- his full name is "Wamba, son of Witless".  Great name for a board with no intelligence whatsoever.

[Actually the character is very clever.  Pax vobiscum.]

Not "packed", but ready to wash and wear.  I'm "local" so no need to pack anything other than something to read on the way to San Jose.

The MÜSLI card

I once designed a 16-channel serial interface card that did both HDLC and Async protocols.  I proudly named it the "Multichannel Universal Serial Line Interface" or MÜSLI, like the breakfast cereal.

The lack of quality manuals and documentation for developer tools greatly diminishes our ability to work well in subtle but important ways.
