Workshop Update for October 23rd, 2012

in Workshop Update by DP | 5 comments

Today we had rested up from our Mumbai leg of the Global Geek Tour of India. Out of Mumbai and onwards to Bangalore. Great time and great video. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

Flew to Bangalore for part two of the tour. Enjoying the Indian driving style. Doesn’t bother the drivers, pedestrians, or Ian, but Skillz ruined his gotchies.

In the workshop we started amending our xQFP protoboards. We want to extedn the pads on our universal QFP footprints to give more leg room for soldering. This however requires that we extend the dimensions of the boards a little as well..

    “Gotchies!” – now there is a word I haven’t heard since my youth in Winnipeg many decades ago, and even then it was dropping out of favour. There was a wave of Ukrainian and yiddish speaking immigrants that came to Winnipeg in the early 1900’s and I assumed only people from the prairies knew this word.

      Growing up in the US, my grandmother and sometimes my mother would use that word. They said it to me enough times I find myself using it when speaking to my young kids. :)

        I picked it up from a .CA TV show a few years ago. I think its a great word that deserves a revival :)
