Default "breakin' up is hard to do..."

Hey everyone,

New to the site, and new to the area of DIY projection, and audio, and everything else.

Basically, I am a learn as I go type of guy. Fried a few hairs, blown a few circuits, but given the time it always turns out right, sorta. I am like Tim the toolman, but younger, better looking and not as rich. I, alas, can't afford to constantly screw up, but do enjoy learning from my mistakes.

Since I am just starting out please take it easy on the ignorance I may infect you with. I will get better, I just have to do a little research. My job is dealing with hazardous chemicals on a daily basis, so not only is my brain fried, but i glow too.

Anyway, if any of you would like to know how many cubic feet of air and at what rate a level 100 clean room goes through, let me know. Semiconductor industry is too cool.

Working with hazardous chemicals? You sound more like Homer Simpson than Tim the tool man!

To reply to all three:

I am 25 and aging fast to be exact. I started tinkering around with stuff around the age of 5, when I took apart a cassette recorder.

I actually just supply the chemicals to the plants themselves, I guess the technical term would be third party logisitcs and warehousing in a just in time environment. But to answer your question, the one fab that we deliver to makes the tiny chip the reads your hard drive. Approx 5000 can fit on a wafer about 4 - 5 in in diameter. It's pretty cool. Compared to a penny it's smaller than the lettering, and the second generation is about half that size.

Luckily all I do is deliver the chems, so I don't get any on me. But it's some pretty nasty stuff.
Thanks for the replies!!
