    Published. August 30, 2018

    One animation video - Patch Like The Wind - is worth a thousand words :) If you don’t use Specman or don’t use Specman correctly, you spend most of your time waiting for compilation to finish. One of the most frustrating (and common…) scenarios is when you know more or less what the fix should be (such as, “wait additional cycle before sending” or “the variable should be int and not uint”) and the fix can be done in a matter of minutes. However, you are forced to spend hours waiting...

    Forensic Science is in My DNA
    Published. September 18, 2018

    Working in law enforcement is as tough as it is rewarding. I got my start in 1968 as a beat cop in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My initial years on the force eventually led me to a 50-year career in forensic science. I’ve seen a lot of changes in that time. Back in my policing days, pretty much all we had was a uniform, a badge, a nightstick, handcuffs, a sidearm, a pair of comfortable shoes, perhaps a vehicle, a desire to protect and serve and each other. We didn’t have...Read more...

    John Cooley Barrister Chastises Synopsys
    Published. October 28, 2013

    That John Cooley built his blogger reputation by promoting himself as the White Knight representing users against the oppressor Synopsys is well known. But that John Cooley easily navigated legal issues was a well kept secret until October 25, 2013. Reading his latest "scoop" against Synopsys I was surprised by the amount of legal insight that John displays, and how quickly he can reach the conclusion that the matter is resolved against Synopsys and in favor of Atoptech on 8 of the 9 claims made...

    How I Record Screencasts

    I get this asked a lot so here is my brain dump on the topic. What A screencast is just a demo that you present to yourself while recording the screen.

To see examples of screencasts, watch any of my screencasts on channel9. Why If you are a technical presenter, think of...
