Working at home

The other nice thing about working at home is my short commute down one flight of stairs. I was reminded of that today as I headed to the Mathworks. I figured 20 minutes, allowed for 30, but it took 40. And, that was a reverse commute. The traffic heading into Boston was far worse.

Every day is "Shorts" day

When I first moved to the USA in 1990, as you say, every day was shirt and tie and real trousers -- except for casual Fridays when you could get by without a tie (I think the wearing of jeans came later -- certainly no shorts).

At that time --24 years ago now -- I don't think anyone wore shorts in England (excepting very young kids) -- maybe at the beach -- I don't recall. I know my friends were surprised the first time I went back wearing shorts.

Now, like you, I work in my own office (I don't work from home -- I have the Pleasure Dome) -- in the summer I wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts and sandles (I go barefoot in the Plaesure Dome) -- in the winter I wear jeans and Hawaiian shirts and sneakers.

Life is good :-)

You are just letting your "Inner Max" shine through -- go with the rush -- it will make a man of you, my son!

You call that winter clothing?

in the winter I wear jeans and Hawaiian shirts and sneakers.

In the winter, I wear sweat pants (two pairs). socks (two pairs) boots, and gloves. Oh and three sweatshirts. It gets cold here.

What do you wear when you leave the house?

How did that old American cowboy song go? Something like:

   {Deep voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher again} Bacon, bacon, bacon... Raw-Hide!

I forget the rest...

Wus! What do you know from winter, living so close to the Equator?

Nobody goes outside in the winter around here.

See the words "working at home" in the first line. They now link to a EDN blog about the transformation of my home office two years ago.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
