Nothing to be done


As i look around the room, observing the people here, all of them looking for a job I’m told the schedule. It does not work for me, but i decide to stay anyways, i thought it could be interesting. It is a group interview.

There are about 30 of us, and the interviewer just asked us to sell her a tooth brush. An electric tooth brush. There are all kinds of people here. All of them with the same objective, getting this phone sales job. In a country mostly unemployed.

I’m only here looking for a student job that can fit into my universities schedule and this is a full time kind of thing. Everyone here probably needs it more than i do.

Just about 45% of the people here are capable of improvising a decent dialogue about this hypothetical electric tooth brush.

No one bought the brush, despite its rechargeable batteries. Or its interchangeable head. Or the colour options. Or its extreme high rotation speeds.

Oshpark Gerber Cam Job (Eagle)


I was a loyal user of BatchPCB a side project of SparkFun. Recently, their service was moved to OSH Park which supports Eagles 6.4 or higher board files natively. However I always liked the fact that SparkFun provided with their own cam job that works just perfect. And since these gerber files are the actual standard in the industry (i think…) well i made my own for OSH Park.

Remember, don’t leave any layer empty (that goes for Top and Bottom Silk Layers)

The layout is like this:

  • boardname.GTL Top Layer (top, pads, vias)
  • boardname.GBL Bottom Layer (bottom, pads, vias)
  • boardname.GTS Top Soldermask (tStop)
  • boardname.GBS Bottom Soldermask (bStop)
  • boardname.GTO Top Silkscreen (tPlace)
  • boardname.GBO Bottom Silkscreen (bPlace)
  • boardname.GKO Board Outline (Dimension)
  • boardname.XLN Drills (Holes, Drills)

I hope it’s good and that it works for you!
