Just asked my mechanical engineer father if he uses calculus at work. His response; "Yeah. Just not very high forms of it."

To the point at hand, I still maintain that high-end work can't rely on pre-written tools. You can't avoid using calculus, and stuff way beyond, in high-end engineering.

You don't get paid what you're worth, you get paid what you negotiate. A friend of mine w/ no degree told me this and I've found it to be true. He's also specialized his carrier to the point where only a few in the country have his skills, so he does have something to negotiate with. He never uses calc, BTW.

Yeah but thats three years out, within 5 years over 200k and plateau around 350k. At least thats what was promised.

If thats not the case then I go to law school. 180K first year with 15K bonus, till eventually I **** currency.

Plus its not the education, that just proves you can work hard. Its the ideas that matter. I dont care how many degrees or from what school if you cant think then its wasted on you.

Switching gears for a little bit, are any of you CPE's? I am working on a project designing a 4bit processor and I have it in logicworks 5. I have leds wired up to the inputs and outputs but they don't seem to be displaying properly. Could any of you take a look at it and see wtf is up? I have it wired up what I believe to be 100% correct. I can send you a list of micro ops with it.

EDIT: nvm, I got it working.
