No matter what higher level language used, they all break down to assembler. It taught me one thing... No matter how complicated or impossible something seems, it can be broken down into small doable tasks.
Yes, we did meet at Region 1 last year -- I still have the image of your meticulously buffed trailer imprinted in my brain!

I will be at Three Rivers -- I'm in charge of planning the NEU's presentation of the 2006 Region One rally, which the NEU is hosting in 2006. It should be fun for all.

It's coincidental that you brought up the Latin analogy as I also studied Latin for four years. (I guess I'm showing my age, yet AGAIN!) I was so disappointed in school when I learned no one speaks Latin any longer and it is primarily studied for research and linguistic purposes. I guess I can thank Latin for helping me attain a higher score on the vocabulary section of the SAT.

I was also a FORTRAN and C-programmer. You are right about how all code boils down into Assembler -- I sometimes would figure out how many lines of assembler code it would take to execute a single line of FORTRAN or C code (yes, you can call me a geek and I won't take offense).

Welcome to the forum! I work for 3M and we bought our trailer from a retired 3M'er. Congrats on the grand-children. When we get you a trailer, we'll have to get you signed up in the WBCCI group. They are a great bunch of folks, and have a lot to offer. Looking forward to meeting you.

self employed architect, my wife is focused on the kidz at present but usually works in a "design" related industry.

Talking

Spend my earlier years as an Engineer working for the Dept of Navy in Combat Systems. Traveled extensively doing pre-arrival, in yard and post departure work on the 3 C's. My office, then, was located next to the oldest dry dock in the US. (Dry Dock # 1)
During the late 60's, worked on Space Shuttle prototype at NASA's Langley Research Center's rocket tunnel in Newport News, Va. It was here I first saw such things as fiber optic, Laser beam, Teflon, etc. The very last project I was involved with here is still flying outwards to the farthest region of known space. (The program itself was shutdown just several years ago)
Retired from LMC in 1995 after spending many years on different AF Space Program project from Apollo mission to the Moon, etc. Been involved in every single Space Shuttle launch upto the last tragic flight two years ago.
Currently, I'm working for a small Virginian company call PEC. (still within the AF Space Program)
At one time, in a former life, I earned degree in MS and, was licensed as a Funeral Director/Embalmer in the state of New Hampshire. Found this subject to be a rather unusual conversation opener at parties...lol
Since Sept, 2004, I have been working at a brand new Airstream Dealership in Southern New Hampshire. Sharing the experiences of Airstream ownership , as a mentor of sorts, has been very rewarding.
I've enjoyed sharing my knowledge with the other people at the dealership, thus in some small way, this has been my way of helping it grow into one excellent facility for all of our customers Airstream needs.
Not much time for travels or working on my 64GT project but...I'm planning on catching up with a lot of lost time traveling..
ciao

I was an aircraft mechanic at Eastern Airlines, now I am at FedEx as an Avionics Tech. My wife is a pharmacist. The best part of FedEx is that the packages don't complain.

I'm A Fire Captain with the Toronto Fire Services. We're the fifth largest F.D. in North America. My other half is the office manager at a small hospital. We're both looking forward to doing some snowbird-type travelling when we retire in about 4 years. Hopefully our Argosy will be up to it as well!

George,

Welcome round here, hope you post lots. Never knew packages (or passengers) to complain about avionics. Flight crews, though...

Lightbulb New Job

In Dec. I will be graduating (yet again) with another one of those worthless degrees. I'm excited to say I will be a Nurse Practitioner! I also have a degree in chemistry but never actually did it for a job.
My partner is an architect. Our plan is to work towards spending less time working and more time Airstreaming. At this point that's almost inevetible-right now I look forward to weekends so I can read. Hope to soon see you all down the road!

Heidi
