EEVBlog Apprentice

So what happened to Phil the EEVBlog apprentice with the dodgy voice? Some stuff about laser physics (IIRC) would have been very insightful.
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

He couldn't find the left hand screwdriver, so I had to sack him.
He's back working as a physics patent attorney (no jobs in lasers).

I got my apprentice to root around in the drawer the other day for an 'aluminium magnet', he spent quite a while doing it too! Best of luck to Phil, would be good to get him back for other guest appearances if he's got time, Doug Ford too!

Send them after some frequency grease, chemlight batteries, or a can of squelch.

The one most used in my day was to send them out for a tin of elbow grease.

I remember when I was in Year 4 at primary school, the teacher sent someone round all the school to try and get some elbow grease to facilitate cleaning the whiteboard :D  8).
