 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

With this post, I reached the coveted "God Member" status!  Woo hoo! smiley I have some mixed feelings, though: why do I have to trade my 4 gold stars for 5 silver ones?  smiley-grin

After several months of talking up Arduino to my team at work, I finally got one of them -- my boss, no less -- hooked.  He bought a bunch of *duino loot from several of the big suppliers, and now we spend quite a bit of time in our one-on-one meetings talking about all the projects we're going to build someday.

I realized suddenly that if he starts reading these forums, he'll see how much of my work time I spend posting.  I'm busted!  Fred, are you reading this?  If I seem to have disappeared from the forum, it's probably just that I have had to create a new, more opaque, user identity. smiley

See you around!

Looks like 3 to 6 posts per day, 2 or 3 posts during work hours, and usually small posts. The big posts with quotes, you are doing later in the evening.

No one can focus continuously on a single task, if you take a break every couple hours and spend a few minutes catching up on something you like which could feed back into your job, I don't see a huge problem.

I'm reminded of the Google (and other companies) 20 percent working time for personal projects rule.

Fred, think of all the potential customers created by the goodwill from Mikal's contributions.  smiley-wink

And to everyone else here, please buy goods and services from Mikal's company so he doesn't get busted   smiley-grin

Mikal, what is it you do when you are not helping all the good people here?

@mem, I'm not sure company policy permits me to divulge the name in a public forum, but let's just say I'm a software engineer working for a chip manufacturer.  A large one.  The LARGEST one, in fact. smiley Fred and I work in the networking division.

@macegr, I appreciate your assessment.  It's a real pleasure to be in this forum with all "the good people".  Sometimes I think I spend a little too much time here -- time I could be developing Arduino projects, or working!

@Fred, please post a reply if/when you start using the forum, so that I can better assess what to do next. smiley

Cheers and thanks,

Mikal
