    Oh how I know this so well. I’m currently undertaking some 200+ hours of in house training. I’m reteaching the sales and tech staff the basics of controllers and our product range – a sort of refresh course.

    I also spot light from time to time in our Seminars and attend them all as technical support for when sales run into customers who are also engineers.

    I have felt the engineer being sucked out of me – however I’m now doing more hobby projects. So hopeful I’ll come out of this OK. I’m showing good progress and the doctors say I should be fine.! :o)

    I can’t really say how powerpoint affects companies. Apparently it’s the bane of the US military (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/27/world/27powerpoint.html).

    At universities, powerpoint classes are the worst thing. Now that I’m on the other side of the fence, I plan on avoiding it like the plague. It’s on my list of things that they need to fix about universities (see my blog post on the topic).

    So far into power point engineering land, I started writing VB scripts to generate slides for me…
