jetzzfan: As a process engineer, we make sure that the tools are running on target, that maintenance is being performed on the tools correctly and that we're not screwing up the wafers with defects.

I mean no disrespect by this post (if anything the opposite): unlike a lot of job titles, that is one that sounds worse than it really is. Prior to this, if I heard someone say they were a "process engineer" I would have assumed they were some bullshiat consultant middleman who charges 1000/hr to draw a diagram and combine a few steps in some office process with no regard for the long-term consequences. But it sounds like it actually requires an engineering background and an understanding of materials and manufacturing.

Meh. Let me know when they can get 10,000 triode tubes on a single chip. Then I'll be impressed.

SuperSeriousMan: First they came for the silicon in the boobs, and I said nothing.
Then they came for the silicon in the chips, and I still said nothing...

then they asked for some of my potato chjips... and I was like get your own
