    PE Certificate Frame w/Pencil

    Sorry, only have one of those. Maybe someone who did not pass April '18 would be willing to sell? Good luck.

    I'll spare one if I have a duplicate. Which administration are we talking about? For the last several years, I am lucky to only have one.

    Would you redo becoming an engineer?

    Hey, who are we to judge? But do remind me to bring some KY if I ever visit KC!

    I've tried several times to point out areas of recommended improvement such as consistent formatting and naming of the forums. He either ignores me or goes out of his way to make it more inconsistent. Arrggghhh. :S No ban threat yet though.

    Light razzing.

    Would you redo becoming an engineer?

    This is absolutely correct. The rules are simple actually. Your spelling, grammar, diction, punctuation, and use of verbs, adverbs, nouns, pronouns, proper nouns, adjectives, and past-participles should be 100% correct 100% of the time in thread titles and at least 95% correct 90% of the time in the body of a post. Some additional forgiveness is allotted for those with English as a second language (but not much). Punishment for breaking these rules can range anywhere from light razzing to full blown tormenting. I could go on 'alot' more but that is a whole 'nother' story which 'supposebly' should be saved for another time.

    I am meeting some friends for lunch so, in fact, I'll be receiving my new-design pencil today!

    Good Luck on your exams

    Personally, I think this is justification for a permaban. Sorry Vel, I'm sure you are a great guy and everything but this poor judgement is just plain inexcusable behavior.

    'Gasp'. The horror! This is why I recommend every examinee memorize my signature line! Seriously, I really did print out and bring with me the NCEES exam-day rules (including the 'keep the pencil policy' in my signature) just in case any issues arose, I could point to the official rules. Thanks a lot for pointing this out knight..... and depressing the heck out of me. :-[::::::::

    Possible playhouse assistance for inclusive park

    I like it but I don't see that holding up to the elements. I think it will look pretty worn pretty quickly.

    In our City we do what RG said. We procure a vender that offers pre-designed modular playground equipment. But be prepared to spend $40,000 for something basic up to over $300,000 for something extravagant. https://www.playgroundequipment.com/products/commercial-playgrounds/accessible https://www.gametime.com/products/playground-equipment/inclusive-play

    Thanks knight! Howly cow! I never thought the day would come. The previous design was, what? Like 16 years old? Does this mean that those of us with the previous design now own a "classic"? Worth more money? I don't care if I have to beg, borrow, or steal..... I am getting my paws on one of these new models. :nod:
