The TI E2E™ design support forums will undergo maintenance from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2. If you need design support during this time, contact your TI representative or open a new support request with our customer support center.

I found out today that I'm the proud co-winner of the 2011 EP Community Fan Vote for Blog of the year. I also want to congratulate the Multicore Mix Blog on sharing this with me. I'll take the statue on odd weeks, you can have it on even weeks, k?

To me, blogs are just one more way to get closer to the customer. It helps communicate that TI is more than just a big brown building that bakes sand, we're people. Smart, strange and sometimes funny people, who aren't that horrible to share a drink with.

I want to thank the voters for taking the time to recognize this channel of communication, and encourage them to keep the communication channels going both ways.  That comment block below isn't there just for looks!  See you all on the forums/blogs/wikis!
