I did the NOC thing for almost 2 years. It got boring. Sure, we did watch 2 movies every night, we did play Diablo (I not II) for hours every night, etc etc. But after a while I found all that got old. Decided to move on. It was fun for the 1st year :)

If you work day shift that would prolly help a little. I worked nights. Noone around but the ben-gay smelling cleaning ladies. Always dark when I was awake.

An upside was the 24hr stores are E M P T Y are 0300. Got my shoping done fast.

The only really cool part of my job is knowing what every layer on the chip is made of, and how it is made.  It's intense!

I'm going to be working on the newest technology soon, 1.3 micron chips.  New tools, new everything.  Hopefully, it'll help this business pick up again.

Yeah, they are doin some type of copper chips or some such where I work. But to be honest "I know nothing" (Sgt. Schultz) about the actualy chip making part.

Whoops....sorry.

Missed the period.  That's right.... 0.13 Micron.  :)

300MM wafers, too.  12 inch instead of 8 inches!  F*cking wafer is HUGE!  :)

Thanks.

After 10 years in the USAF, it's nice to actually make money.  :)  Not that I didn't enjoy protecting my country, it's just that my country didn't think my job was worth crap.

Hopefully, the new technology will help push the whole expanding Ghz battle to the 5 Ghz range by late 2002.
