Well...

Initially I was in line for a 1 year internship at a local aircraft manufacturer. That fell through unfortunately and I thought I'd be stuck taking classes this summer. Today, not more than 20 minutes ago I got a phone call that I have been offered a summer position at Daimler Chrylser in the engineering department. I get to spend the summer taking apart <edit>brand T cars</edit> . Or...reverse engineering. Awesome.

Just thought I'd share the good news.

Unfortunately I don't get to celebrate until next Tuesday night. Damned finals.

A better use for them I can't imagine.

You probably weren't supposed to tell the public that

Ya might like the job beter than aircraft. Can you get us pix of some of the tools you get to use? I imagin that the 'shop' you are going to work at might have some out of this world hand tools. They probably have a 'price no object' when it comes to tools. I'm thinking 'Area 51' style goodies. Keep us tuned in to whatever you can share, they might have security disclamers on you, for findings but maybe not for tools.

I was never told that I wasn't supposed to share. Maybe I'll edit the original...I mean it can't hurt to leave that detail out.

I imagine that the actual engineering reports will be confidential. I'll see what I can do as far as tools and such. I don't start until 8 May, so i've got a bit yet.

I dunno. An idiot with a crescent wrench, hammer, and a pair of pliars can get most anything apart. It takes some special tools to put them back together, though.

AFAIK they don't have to go back together, and I imagine that they will need to be relatively intact when they came apart to begin with, you know, engineering analysis and all.
