I can't help but throw in my solution to this. When I went back to grad
school, I got an MS in Computer Engineering. This kept me in the electronics
engineering arena, as well as being accepted as a computer
science/programmer type guy. All this was prompted by my getting into
teaching - industry did not care what degrees I had (math degree in my
case), they just wanted for me to be able to do the job well (which I did).
In entering teaching, I found that the degree was more important than the
knowledge! Sad but true. Incidentally, I also had (still have) a
Professional Engineering License from the state of California, but that did
not impress most schools (except for Oregon Institute of Technology).

On another topic, I have been thinking of selling my original H89 that I
used to develop all the  Anapro/Analytical Products hardware and software
on. I found this list through a contact on e-bay where some H89 were being
sold. If I should decide to part with my machine, what is the best way to
find it a proper buyer? Thanks for any suggestions.
