..."On the night shift..."

Well my friends, I have come to the conclusion that I like working nights. it is less busy and you can do your work and not have to worry about all the political crap that is associated with the day shift. Although, my fate as it is seems to be undecided, on which shift I will ultimately end up on is not concluded; I can only hope that it will be for the best of me and the company. More later as details are disclosed.

Good night and good luck - Edward R. Murrow

Yard Work...

Well, it started over 2 weeks ago. I lowered my lawn mower and cut the crass very low to get it ready for the aerator that myself and 2 other neighbors were renting. Last weekend, we went and got the machine and I proceeded to aerator my lawn, WHAT A TASK in the front. The hill from hell was very tough!! On the flipside, the back and side yards were nothing. After I was through using the machine, my back was killing me!! I did not drop the seed and lime on the yard that day because of the chance of strong storms. I did not want the rain to wash all of my seeds off the lawn. I waited until today and proceeded to do it this morning, by afternoon, we had a cool front come through and it rained like crazy!! I hope that all my seeds did not was down the hill to the road. I will have to see if it happened...

I welcome Comments to my BLOG.

Disney or Dusmney?

I flip through the TV channels that we have on our TV and I stop sometimes and just wonder about the number of show that are directed at tweens and young teens. There are any number of them and in my opinion; they are very dumming and demeaning to me and everyone’s intelligence. I watched cartoons as a child and I sneak in one every so often, but I think that they were more straight forward about their content. Disney Channel and Nickelodeon shows are very child like and have no substance, only fodder for kids to stay inside and be dummed by their talking down to and ridiculous content. I’ll admit that some have a few redeeming qualities, but most in my opinion, aren’t suitable for a 3 year old much less a 13-14 year old young person. They play 24-7 on those two channels. I personally take offense to they way that they portray young adults and tweens to the millions of viewers. My daughter loves to watch them and it bothers me that she is so wrapped up in them. What to do? Am I just too old to enjoy a tween show such as She’s So Raven with my daughter or am I on to something?

A Lady liberal wrote a lot of letters to the White House
complaining about the treatment of a captive insurgent
(terrorist) being held in Guantanamo Bay. She received
back the following reply:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20016

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for your recent letter roundly criticizing our
treatment of the Taliban and Al Quada detainees currently
being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Our administration takes these matters seriously and your
opinion was heard loud and clear here in Washington.

You'll be pleased to learn that, thanks to the concerns of
citizens like yourself, we are creating a new division of
the Terrorist Retraining Program, to be called the
"Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers" program, or
LARK for short.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we
have decided to place one terrorist under your personal

Your personal detainee has been selected and scheduled for
transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence
next Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud (you can just call him
Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you
personal ly demanded in your letter of complaint. It will
likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant

We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your
standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those
you so strongly recommended in your letter.

Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we
hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his
"attitudinal problem" will help him overcome these
character flaws.

Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as
mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to
offer counseling and home schooling.

Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in
hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with
such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise
that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills at
your next yoga group. He is also expert at making a wide
variety of explosive devices from common household
products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up,
unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters
(except sexually), since he views females as a subhuman
form of property. This is a particularly sensitive subject
for him and he has been known to show violent tendencies
around women who fail to comply with the new dress code
that he will recommend as more appropriate attire.

I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by
the burka -- over time.

Just remember that it is all part of "respecting his
culture and his religious beliefs" -- wasn't that how you
put it?

Thanks again for your letter. We truly appreciate it when
folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do
our job. You take good care of Ahmed - and remember. we'll
be watching.

Good luck!
Cordially, your friend,
Don Rumsfeld

Stuff i work on.

All of these products are made by Muratech.
The first picture is a Stocker, the second picture is a LEM and the third picture is an OHT. we have to keep these systems up and running to keep the products going to the FAB tools. Time is money!! If our systems go down, we hold up production and when that happens, people get UPSET!! Well, I started overtime at lunch today and I will be on it all day tomorrow as well. I go on shift next week. I am excited about it as I will have days off during the week and also on the weekend. I really enjoy my job as I am learning lots of new stuff!

Shift Work

Well, I start shift work next week. They are placing me on Nights 1 and I will be training with a very good tech. I am going to like the shift work here as I will work Monday on days, then have Tuesday off and go to work on Wednesday night and Thursday night and have Friday thru Sunday off. Not a bad week.

I really enjoy my job so far and I will keep people up to date as things happen.

Clean Rooms, FABS, and ME...

Well, I have worked 3 days at Qimonda. When I first walked into the FAB, I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!! I did not know what really to expect, but it was amazing. All of the chip making tools like Applied Materials, ASML, DNSE, just to name a few. The robots are all Murata as well as the LEM and OHT. The OHT takes wafers to the tools and the LEM only moves wafers from storage to storage. . IT is about 250,000 sq/ft of space. Very large. It is a 300mm chip wafer that comes out in inches, that is 12 inches; they also have a 200mm FAB that is 8 inches. It is said, that there are planes to build a 450mm FAB at that site, time will tell. I am getting to work on robots ad keep them running. I am learning their systems and procedures. I have to dress fully in a clean room suit. From head to toe. It is a class 10 facility and we can have no hair or skin showing. I have a picture of me in my suit that I am posting on the Blog as well. I am working only days now, but will go to shift work around the end of October. Or that is the plane at the moment. Well, more later.
