I once worked with a guy at Tek, Cal Diller, who described himself on =
his
Tek business card as an "Electron Guidance Counselor".  I think most non
engineers can relate to that.

Sorry if this is a little off-task, but ABOUT the most perplexing =
problem
I've had for a while is answering the question "So, what do you do?".  I
faced this again while buying a dirt bike in the panhandle of Idaho - =
not a
place exactly full of E-mag expertise (though maybe a certain eastern
Washingtoner might have relatives there?).  After years of blank looks, =
I've
never found a good answer.  I mostly resort to "I design computers" or
something like that.  Does anyone have a good SHORT explanation of what =
a
"Signal Integrity Engineer" does, for the general public, who think =
"fast
busses" is an oxymoron?  I recently heard of "Microwave Plumber" and am
thinking that comes pretty close!

Thanks,
Jeff Loyer
