Whatever Happened to Dave II?
« on: April 09, 2016, 06:46:54 pm »
Whatever happened to Dave II? We've seen a few brief mentions of the guy but the last time he was featured was the 3D Printer. I understood that Dave II was recruited so that there would be more EEVBlog projects but so far all we have seen is the multimeter.
Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.

I've said this countless times now, David2 works from home now, and is very busy with uni and other projects. He still works on stuff when he has the time.
I will probably ultimate need to hire another lab rat, with David2 continuing to work on projects remotely.

Maybe you should make this (or a simmilar post) a sticky so that everyone can see it more easily? Could help reducing the amount of questions asked.

Lucky I came across this post, I was about to ask the same thing. So he is still at Uni then?

Oh no, I hope not "UNI"... anything BUT UNI-T  :palm: ... unless it is "University", then it is different  ;)

I wish him well. Would be nice to do a feature episode of him though, and then a guest one  :P maybe from the "Altium" building too  :-DD

Fan Club? No, not really, but I was hoping to see additional construction projects coming from EEVBlog Towers and more use made of that lab full of equipment. If I had access to facilities like that I would be building ham radio gear to die for.

I am not sure about in Australia, but here in the UK, University is often shortened to Uni.

Uni is definitely something we in the UK picked up from the Aussies. I remember watching Neighbours when I was at university and some of the characters were off to uni. It sounded odd then but doesn't now.

My university days pre-dated "Neighbours" by 4 years but it was definitely "off to uni".

Yes, it's "Uni" here. Never "college" like the Yanks call it.

Was hoping to hear more about his 3D printer besides just what was said in the video.
Still if he's busy, then it's going to be a while before much happens with it.

It was around long before neighbours, trust me....
