  1. I'd definitely be interested in a "How To" if you want to post one. I'm still looking for a Load into/run from RAM solution, but it's for a future project. My current project is just running off of a USB HDD and doesn't run completely in RAM and I'm not pressed right now for the RAM solution.
  2. A Software Engineering Approach to LabVIEW I personally liked this one and still reference it. Although I don't believe it covers LV8.0+, it has some good techniques and info that I've made standard in my programming.
  3. I don't know about creating a database in TestStand, but it's not too difficult to access one and read/write from/to it. If you have TestStand installed (in the default location) you can see database examples in C:\Program files\National Instruments\TestStand[version]\Examples (I'm using 3.1). Unfortunately, I dont have any examples of my own to post for you. I've been using TS on and off for about 2 years. My original sequences accessing a database were created by building my on DB access routines in LabVIEW and then calling them from TestStand. At that time, I didn't know there were
  4. QUOTE(Jim Kring @ Mar 22 2007, 12:00 PM) Very true! Dammit, why can't any of you guys be located in Central VA? There's no decent LabVIEW jobs around here. *GRRR*
  5. I see all points valid here. If you work at a company and a coworker knows you're on this site, and even who you are (maybe you recommended it to him) or they're even a member, they could use that information against you if you have a falling out or if they have a hidden agenda. But, being LabVIEW programmers, we're all interested in metrics and statistics. I think each member has their own responsibility to make themselves as anonymous as they deem comfortable (posting company names, using real names, posting personal info). Just like you would on any other site on the internet. I t
  6. Checked them out. Right now, my time issue is in coming up with something to submit to the repository. I was working on something for a while, but then things got busy at work and at home; wife, son and house take priority. I want to get around to submitting something someday.
  7. I'd apply if I was sure I had enough time to devote to it. I don't know if I meet all of the qualifications anyway.

  9. ^ That's where I got my quote from Ben, if you're interested in that stuff, you should read the book "Angels & Demons" (Dan Brown). I just finished it, pretty good fiction novel. For those who have read it, shall we sway the discussion to matter and antimatter and how they could possibly be involved in the creation of the universe?

    I mentioned the salary info and location in one of crelf's job postings to my wife last night just joking around and later caught her online looking up housing costs in the area! I actually looked for an NI job at one point, but found nothing for which I felt was really a good fit. When I lived out in California 2 years ago, I didn't even know JKI existed, or I would have sent in my resume. Only problem is that the SanFrancisco area is much more expensive than in Orange County where I lived and wifey wants to be able to have a house in lieu of a condo. Anyway, I think I took this threa
  11. Great, Aristos Queue has gone plaid.
  12. Hmmm. A doughnut-shaped universe within the confines of a Hawkins pressure cooker? Intriguing.
  13. What about Homer Simpson's theory of the doughnut-shaped universe? Stephen Hawking seemed intrigued by it.

    Would definitely seriously consider it if it wasn't so derned cold up there. I don't think I could convince my wife to move to MI. We've lived in upstate PA, but since she's been spoiled by southern Cali and Virginia weather. Plus, your link says your positions are filled and I'm not quite sure if I have what one might consider a "superstar resum

    Damn, who here doesn't work indirectly or directly with crelf... besides me?
  16. Most non-NI I/O cards I've had to deal with come with (or you can find on the web) DLLs and documentation on the functions and how to use them. If you're able to find the same for your card, you may be able to use the "Call Library Function" VI, which is much easier to use than the CIN (which I have personally never attempted except in trying to learn how... without success).
  17. So, you mean creating a dialog or something that will run only the first time the application is run that prompts the user for the password (software key) provided by moephunk or his company?
  18. I didn't mean to insult anybody or anything by saying what I said (my brother actually had problems with spelling in school). I was talking about people who do it out of general laziness and/or don't even try, not out of their own abilities or limitations. It just irritates me, just like someone writing in all caps when it's not necessary. I apologize if I offended anyone, it wasn't my intent
  19. I believe that I communicate better in written form than orally. I don't know if my mind is going faster than I have the ability to move my mouth and get them out or what. Occasionally I'll be in a hurry and let written mistakes slip, but I try not to. I also think that how someone communicates in written form (especially on the internet) is a good indication of their credibility, thoroughness and respect for their audience. The way some kids communicate on the web nowadays irks the living hell out of me. One of my friends has a point though. He said that written and oral communication
  20. I actually have something I created as a quick tool that I could submit. I need to clean it up a bit and add some functionality I've been thinking about as well as documentation before I submit it (I'm sure someone has already created something like it though). My problem is just getting time to spend on it right now. My son and work pretty much dominate my day.

    There ya go! Someone should do a VI that will generate all of the possible letter and capitalization combinations for the word "LabVIEW" and post it in this thread. I'd do it, but unfortunately, after my morning slack time is over, I'll be spending all day with my head in a machinery control system.

    Holy cow, Elmer Fudd has hacked this thread! Spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes are a pet peeve of mine, especially on the internet (my mom is a reading specialist, so she pounded it into me). This has earned me the title of "Grammar Nazi" on one of the online BBs I administer. It was originally intended to be an insult to me, but I embraced it.

    I always try to put in LabVIEW properly, but sometimes I'm in a hurry, or just feeling lazy. LaBvIeW lAbViEw
  24. Willingness to move has never been a problem for me since my wife and I embrace opportunity for something new... however, I now have a 1 yr old and can definitely understand how it gets more complicated and even more when they get older. Also, the point on having someone on the inside... it makes complete sense, and that's how I got my current job. I never would have if it handn't been for JRH. My last job I got becuase I was one of very few applicants... I desperately needed a job (Corning had just downsized their photonics division and I was one of many victims) and they desperately ne
  25. Man, when I was living in California (Moved to VA in 9/04), if I would have known JKI would be even REMOTELY interested in hiring me... I would have been there in an instant. Hell, my first and I think only PM correspondence with you through this board was back when I lived in Orange County... just before I moved here. I'm not so much looking for a job as looking at my possibilities. I have a friend who lives in NC and another one moving there soon and the idea of looking for a job there crossed my mind... so I did a monster search and found a position open with an NI Alliance partner (the
