Brians...I'd like to welcome to the blogsphere Brian Powell. Brian's been with LabVIEW for a very, very long time. If you've ever talked with someone in R&D about LabVIEW, there's a good chance it was Brian at some point.
He and I actually sit just a koosh-ball throw away from each other, so we'll make sure that the other keeps posting!
However, I'll let him introduce himself, since he's already done that.
