I'm an ASIC design and verification engineer. Its amazing how much software development goes into hardware design nowadays!! Everything changes every two or three years in this industry, and you have to keep on top of it or get left behind.

comment Cookware, copper or cast iron or just buy the right tool for the job?
Same here...I have an 8" ceramic coated skillet for eggs. Unless you have strong wrists, flipping the eggs is a no-go with cast iron.

I'd argue FOR a new Lodge. Especially for a cast iron newbie. They are cheap, and if you screw it up, easy to replace. The good thrift store pieces (Griswold, etc) are expensive and need to be stripped and re-seasoned before using. The only thing you can't do in a Lodge is eggs, but everything else is a go. Learn how to use, clean and maintain cast iron on a cheap Lodge, and then when you are comfortable, move up to a vintage Griswold or the like.

comment How should I cook bacon in an oven?
What do you do to avoid spattering grease all over the oven? Or is there not spattering with this method? I don't want to have to clean the oven afterwards.
