  1. The Baking Thread

    Just the sourdough starter, which is flour and water. This entire recipe was actually only flour, water, and salt. The yeast is in the starter, and is naturally occurring from the flour and the environment.
  2. The Baking Thread

    My first naturally leavened (meaning no added commercial/instant yeast) sourdough loaf! And damn, is it good. I don't know if I'll ever buy bread again.

    Oh my gosh, @Voomie. I am so, so, so sorry to hear that. I''ll be keeping you in my thoughts. That is truly heartbreaking.
  4. Table set up at exam

    Wow, I'm really glad I was allowed food and water (I tested in California). I keep myself very hydrated during the day (and thus am very aware when I am dehydrated), and also have trained my body to eat at very specific times of the day. I was very uncomfortable during the 2.5 hour state specific exams! I can't imagine going 4 hours from roughly 8 am to 12 pm, then again from 1 pm to 5 pm (or longer, with the reading of the rules and such) with no food, and especially no water. Good luck to those who have to do it that way! Hopefully you're not like me.

    Happy opening day! Yay, baseball!
  6. The Running Thread

    Okay, after a ten mile run on Sunday, and bike commuting the past two days with the westerly wind having returned, my legs felt like lead on my short run last night. But they feel much better today! Good thing, as I have my last truly challenging training run tonight. 8 miles with 6 at HMP (half marathon pace). My half (which I'm not counting on running in under 1:45 at this point) is a week from Sunday, so next week, I get to taper!
  7. I watched the first episode of "Mindhunter" on Netflix the other day. It didn't particularly catch me, but I imagine I'll give it a few more episodes before I decide yay vs. nay.
  8. CIVIL Structural PE April 2018

    I hope you mean 32/40 for the breadth exams... ?? But regardless, good luck!
  9. From another Californian, welcome to the board! And good luck! The third time can definitely be the charm.
  10. Table set up at exam

    Unless you're in California! At least at my testing location, they wouldn't let us have any books standing up on the tabletops. Anyway, where I tested, there were two people per standard folding table (probably 8" long). I brought in all of my books (for the Civil: Structural PE exam, so I had a lot) in two bankers boxes inside of a big suitcase. I divided my resources into the two boxes based on whether they were morning resources or afternoon. There was a little overlap between the morning and afternoon for me. I then kept my primary box (whether morning or night) underneath my table, and put the other box in my suitcase (unzipped) next to me, in the aisle (our proctors didn't care about stuff in the aisle, as long as it wasn't too big/impeding traffic). On my tabletop, I chose the things I knew I was going to need the most (i.e. CERM/EET binders for the morning, and my EET binder and the ASCE, concrete, and steel codes for the afterrnoon). Hope this helps!

  13. EB Cycling Club

    I don't consider a bike computer necessary, but then again, I use my bike mostly for commuting and don't go on any rides that are much longer than 20 miles at a time otherwise.
  14. Forum Banning Game

    Banned because today is the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere.
  15. EB Cycling Club

    Boooo got a flat tire some time probably on Friday. I suspected I had one this morning, but confirmed it after riding to work. So, I shall be stopping at the bike shop on my way home tonight!
  16. Agreed. I don't think they're necessarily worth watching unless you just really want to see the series through to its end, however.
  17. Reminds me of the other day, when a text I received said "Snoke" instead of "smoke".
