better start 2nd sourcing all those LM parts.

RAP's salary sure won't fix their problems.

I wonder if Mark (aka audioman54) is aware of this. Haven't seen Mark around for a couple of weeks. :scratch1:

So lets get this right, we have the worst financial crisis since the Second World War and the people that caused it are enjoying subsidies and bonuses on an unbelievable scale. People like Bob who could help get us out of this mess for the fraction of the cost of a Banker are laid off, how the hell are we ever going to be able to compete with the far east with our priorities so skewed?, is subsidising a Banker going to produce a decent SMPS converter for a solar panel?. Marx was wrong, we wont just sell the rope to hang ourselves we will borrow the money to pay someone else to make it as well. Sorry for the rant, I am fed up.

Unbelievable! I was just emailing with him last week about a power supply design issue, and had switched it over to a National Semi part. I figured I was about due for a reply this week. Sad and stupid on National's part, but I wouldn't worry about Bob for a minute. He probably has 50 job offers by now, or maybe he'll just go hiking.
