  1. It's typically the one that someone has little to no knowledge about. For me it would have been structural, but a structural student likely would say hydraulics(WR) I don't think there's a simple answer.
  2. all of that is awesome! Congrats MudPuppy! Yep RoadGuy….I'm still in NC. I'm actually one of the few that's born and raised here. My dad is a retired Raleigh cop, and his original badge number was "13"...no kidding. and yes Ble….I'm in Raleigh. I've switched jobs a couple of times. I had my own business for a few years, but ONE bad partner ended that. I'm currently with a small firm based out of WV but decided to start a NC operation just before NCDOT screwed up....Hopefully we will pull through this down time.
  3. So, Even though I talk about this site often, I rarely get a chance to visit anymore these days. Many of you here are a part of one of the best things I've ever accomplished, so there are so many great memories. I was looking online this morning for a way to pick up 2 free PDH's before the end of the year and remembered that we use to have a list on here, so I logged back on to see if I could find it. The first post that I see was the VTE had passed away a few years ago....that is just heartbreaking news to me. Are there any more big news items that I missed? I'll try to check back in more often, this really was a very helpful site, and one that I steer many PE exam hopefuls to on a regular basis.
  4. If I didn't feel old by looking at the title of this post, I do after seeing most of the responses. I was working as a drafter with Kimley-Horn. One of the girls that I worked with, Judy, brought in a small black and white portable TV, and we all gathered in her cubicle to watch. Now I feel old....

    all I care about......the REDSKINS are in first place and looking to continue the rise next Monday againts the ROMO-LESS Cowboys!
  6. While I was out of work, I tried to increase my "network" as much as I possible could, so every single day I would start sending out connection requests. I have made a VERY interesting discovery since I've been doing this. Even though Linkedin is a CAREER NETWORK and not Match.com, I get dramatically more accepts from women than I do men. I get about 50-75% acceptance from women, and about 5-10% from men. It's exactly the opposite of what I would have expected. I have continued to send out random connection requests even after I came back to work just to build my network, and it's largely the same now that I'm working. It's like men are threatened to be connected and women see it exactly as it is......or they just are programmed to be nicer, so instead of "hurting my feelings" they just accept.
  7. If the alternator is indeed dead, then it will drain the battery while it's running.....your best shot is to shut it off and hope the BATTERY will start when you're done and allow you to drive far enough to be safe......
  8. ^^^ It was actually good to see all the names that I remembered from way back when still on here.
  9. Here's one for you....it's been EIGHT YEARS since I passed the PE exam!!!! lol I was just talking about this site today, and thought I would drop in and say hello.
  10. I can't believe that I LOST to someone that had TEN LESS correct picks than I did!! WTH!
  11. One thing I know for SURE....I will NOT finish last, and have a little ability to trash talk, at least until tonights games are done. FIRST PLACE for now!!! woohoo!
