The Inaugural Post

Hey, thanks for checking out the blog.  For those of you who follow me on Twitter @FakeEEQuips, thank you, and I apologize for my lack of ridiculous statements lately but coming up with quality Fake EE Quips is harder than it seems.  I will still be posting ridiculous quips as often as possible but after I started tweeting I realized that 140 characters at  time couldn’t contain me and I wanted to move onto bigger and better things.

A little bit about me, I’m in the home stretch of completing my BS/MS degree in Electrical Engineering and I feel that analog circuit design is the bee’s knees.  In my brief time as an engineer I’ve come to realize that I’d much rather spend hours at a bench with an o’scope and an iron looking for the cause of an oscillation than slogging through a pile of code to find a missing semi-colon or parenthesis.  When I’m not trying to become the next Pease, Williams, or Widlar (ambition FTW), you can usually find me touring breweries, listening to ska music, reading, watching Seinfeld reruns, or perfecting the fine art of just being lazy.

In terms of content besides Fake EE Quips, mostly I will be writing about topics in analog circuit design (IC or board level) and my experiences at school, though other topics will appear from time to time.  At the moment, working to complete my thesis and coursework consumes my time and I don’t have any side electronics projects going on. I’m hoping that after graduation I can start one up and post about it.  Until then I’ll write about projects I’ve worked on in the past along with bits and pieces of my thesis (the unclassified parts, dun dun dun).  I’m also kicking around the idea of starting an App Note of the Week post where I will point out some hopefully interesting/useful App Notes.

That’s about all for now.  I’ll do my best to keep posts coming on a semi-regular basis so things don’t stagnate around here.  Enjoy the blog.
