NO RATINGS
Thanks, zeeglen. It's so true. I keep my phone in my jersey pocket so I can grab it and dicate thoughts that I'd surely lose before the end of a ride. Wonder if I could take your comment into my boss and lobby for company-sanctioned "simmering time" this fall when the trails are truly gorgeous...

Sub-conscious problem solving

Again a wonderful example of solving a problem by letting it simmer on a back burner while the mind is freed with less strenuous thoughts.

A recent comment on Karen's blog "So Much Work, So Little Time for Engineers" from jeremybirch states  "2) how many really tough problems do you solve when you are not staring at them but instead you are doing something completely separate, like walking, reading a book, even sleeping?"

Or mountain biking. Good story, Billie.

Aside to the editors/moderators - thank you for blocking URLs in spam comments.  Hope it works.

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.
