My very first blog!

You know....

It's actually been over 18 months since I actually completed a PCB design, and I'm pretty sure that I do not miss it one iota!

Not because I don't like connecting up hundreds of components and thousands of connections over many layers to make an electronic circuit work (and work well), but because I don't miss the dark place that I was in when I was doing it.

I guess I can only describe that place as a dead end job with no prospects, challenges, opportunities (or even a life!).

Anyway, rather than bore you with the place I was in, let me tell you about the place that I am in now. Now I am challenged on a daily basis, some I enjoy, some I don't (mostly I do), I get to discover every little nuance of CADSTAR, figure out how every command, operation, button or option works and once I have figured it out I get to help others to understand how it works too.

I like helping other people understand CADSTAR, although difficult to understand at times like any software, I am sure there was method in the madness of those that wrote it (grin).

So to relieve the pressure I'm going to have a blog, be it weekly or even daily I know not - all I know is that it sounds kinda fun so we'll give it a go.
