  1. I found this while browsing Twitter - https://anchor.fm/quickdrop-podcast Anybody know who Jonathan Hobson is? Is he (are you) on the fora? Good luck! https://quickdroppodcast.wordpress.com
  2. Kidde Aerospace, part of United Technologies Aerospace Systems, has an opening for a really good LabVIEW/CVI engineer. You'll find all the information about it on the UTAS site. I'll put in a good word for you if you're well-known on these fora.
  3. I've had trouble on new installations where I've needed to install the Microsoft Database Engine to get my LabVIEW programs to work. This was only on PCs without MS Office, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
  4. https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/ADO-Error-0x00000001-Argument-error-The-table-name-given-is/m-p/3712255#M1044410 Answered.
  5. I remember the good old days where all I needed to do was get added to an admin group and I could do anything I wanted. The pendulum swung so far away from that extreme to the point where I had to launch a two-week workflow to get the simplest of things done. The pendulum is near a sane point now where I can do stuff (I'm installing NXG right now). Have you heard of Viewfinity? It makes the approval to install something take as long as your boss takes to respond to an email. Life is good again.
  6. http://web.archive.org/web/20070525153607/http://expressionflow.com/ The Wayback Machine has it.
  7. This is what solved the issue, I just missed the significance of what you & ShaunR said until after taking an NI Machine Vision course last month. I still need to overlay the processing parts, but the big nut has been cracked. Thank you.
  8. So you don't need LabVIEW for this particular problem; that's good. You can probably do this with LabVIEW, but it's not the best tool for the job; LabVIEW is really good for applications that interface with hardware. Can you pick a different project to familiarize yourself with it? Something with DAQ or instrument control?
  9. Why must you use LabVIEW? This sounds like a job for Excel's VBA.
  10. The lighting & focus are the same. I expect that the camera settings are different, but I don't know what to look for. I can LabVIEW well enough, but I've never visioned.
  11. I asked a question on the NI site about an odd difference in images in software that I inherited - http://forums.ni.com/t5/Machine-Vision/What-s-wrong-with-this-image/m-p/3573561#U3573561 I get different images in two versions of a software my predecessor wrote, but I can't get the source code to make my desired image (the first one). I've attached the Vision Acquisition Express VI that is used in the software on my NI post. Can you tell me the difference and how I can get the nicer image?
  12. I'd have to say that my biggest weakness is that I care too much. I will work and work and work and work until the job is done ahead of schedule and below budget with all expectations exceeded and everyone is happy. Puke!
  13. If you have significant experience in any programming languages, but not LabVIEW specifically, I'd be satisfied (as an interviewer). Graphical programming is certainly a different kind of animal, but programming is programming, and you can add another language to your repertoire faster than you learned the first few. If you don't have significant experience programming, share with them (and with us, please) what you hope to bring to the table while you improve as a developer. I've interviewed several engineers that had the AUDACITY to put LabVIEW on their resume just because it was in a class they once took or they used someone else's stuff. Oh, the horror! I was not impressed and they were not hired. I'm thoroughly jaded...
  14. I had to zoom into the picture (to see your name badge) to be sure it was really you.
  15. Now I feel like growing some hair on my face. Good job, gentlemen.
  16. I figured that you knew, I just wanted others to see what's already been said. This is a common practice on these fora, not a commentary about you.
