Down Time

Tomorrow starts the Thanksgiving break at IUPUI, and it will be welcome: Yesterday was an offensive dynamics test, moreRF assignments were assigned, and a filling was replaced this morning. Shortly I leave for campus to help a student with assembly programming, work on a lab report, and eat pizza served to my fellow lab students as thanks for our work.

I can use some down time, like this fellow, if not exactly like him.

Some weeks ago I received a nice athletic jacket with the AEP Transmission logo. Now that temperatures are finally dropping, I have begun wearing it more frequently. A few students have asked about it, because AEP doesn't have a real presence among the EE students here. Those I know with utilities experience and interest are looking at Hoosier Energy, Indianapolis Power & Light, and Duke. Being with AEP makes me stand out.

My senior project is coming along nicely. My hardware partner laid out the enclosure design in AutoCAD last night. We also ordered the power supply, switch, cable, and inlet, and a fuse holder. Now we need to get the Raspberry Pi and its touchscreen.

Just four more weeks to finals!
