Biology, chemistry, math, physics, English, etc. You might find you really like one topic, or another just annoys the heck out of you. Going to say, its awfully hard to make a living as someone that pla...

Another Hakko owner, bought it at least 7 years ago. I have not gone shopping for a soldering iron, but I would assume many other companies have replaceable temperature controlled tips now.

I wanted to get married, and I am. If I didn't think a person was a suitable mate, wouldn't go any further.

Learn embedded programming? Our company can't find anybody. Embedded programming is usually written in C, and its the old school procedural, not object-oriented. Usually involves electronics/electrical engineering, and no surprise, lots of EE's do it. Got to question the idea of dropping down to $20...

I keep on adding stuff to any conversation or written post that doesn't apply. Typical Aspie stupid mistake. Or the "young professor" thing, only, I'm not young anymore. Sigh.

Hope your day goes better, fellow ASDers.

I was "between opportunities" in 2003. Saw one of those paper pullaway ads in local food store for a mortgage place. Ended up cold calling people with crappy credit scores. I took it because six months of job search in my field got me no where. Basically telemarketing. Debt consolidation. ...
