I just had an odd phone call.

Law firm in Chicago. Patent law. They wanted to know if I had the capabilities of reverse-engineering a device to see whether it was violating patents.
It's interesting work, but it's really difficult to determine whether it is feasible for me to do with the equipment I have, because it depends on the design of the device. I let the rep know that, and told him it would take me probably four days to either read the device or let him know whether it was beyond my tools. I also gave him the name of a company I worked for that has more advanced tools for that kind of thing.

The legalities of this kind of work are kinda fun. And it's really a lot of analysis and investigative work, which can be fun as well. But I was curious as to why my name would come up. And then it strikes me that I have reverse-engineering and analysis in my skillset for the last two jobs on my resume.

Funky.

Gee, that actually sounds like a lot of fun for work that you get paid for!

You might be able to get them to cover the cost of the additional equipment you would need.

That's how I got my EPROM programmer and embedded C compiler.
