Actually, I am still enjoying my undetermined status, aided buy the fact that MIT ME Department was generous enough to give me a fellowship. I am thinking about a project that does involve some high speed machinery, collisions, and computerized contol systems. It looks worthwhile right now, and I'll be working on it in for the near future. As of now, the project gave me a new toy - a brand spanking new Charmilles 1020SI wire EDM. Just what I need to keep the boredom away during those dreary winter days.
