I've been in California since 1977.
However, I vividly recall you being a chemist (so - if I'm wrong we are even).
If I'm right YOU gave me some really good advice/insight in that regard.
@dekay you definitely have a more vivid and accurate memory than me, David!
I worked as an R&D chemist through the 90s. It was a really rewarding job from the standpoint of accomplishment and personal satisfaction. Financially, not so much. I’m happy to see the environmentally friendly, high end, low ohm resistor material I developed remains the best in the world 25 years on, and is the conductor material in some of the best resistors used in high end audio components. Since moving on to IT, I’ve done a lot better for myself.
I agree with you completely about how much fun and informative the discourse once was. Glad you’re still here, and doing well…
