Welcome! Another engineer here (EE!). These boards do tend to draw those with math skills and a penchant for spreadsheets. ;-)

Thanks Big Papa, I still keep about 5 spreadsheets still active. One of them goes back to the 1990's. It may have been originally created in Lotus 1-2-3, then converted to Excel. When Microsoft came out with Windows 8 a few years back, I made the switch to a Mac. Now the spreadsheets have been converted to OpenOffice.

Congratulations on your son getting his Masters. Hope you told him his MSEE has a half life of 5 years. Only kidding, I read somewhere if your son chooses your profession, it shows his love and respect toward you. My son is a Chemical Engineer, he calls himself a glorified plumber, I have know idea what he is showing me.

Another Huskie. Have you been to the annual reunion in Ft. Myers, FL? They opened another campus in Charlotte, but there is not a Punter's Pub nearby.

Love Zion. We have not done the Narrows yet. We did Angels Landing in 2014 and were going back in 2017. They are now buses in Bryce, newer roads and bike trails added last year and raised the entrance fee. My $10 lifetime pass came in handy. DW wants to know when we are moving there.
