    The Baking Thread

    Are there any other bakers out there? I love to bake, but typically stick to muffins, the occasional donut, and easy loaves I can make in a pan without yeast, starters, what have you. I've been wanting to start to bake my own bread for a few years now, and I think I'm finally going to bite the bullet and attempt to get my own starter going. Has anyone here ever made their own bread? I'm also very interested in baking in my cast iron pan, since I did a few very simple cheddar biscuits as part of a Blue Apron meal a few weeks ago. Anyway, let this be a place where we can all talk about baking processes, baking results, baked goods tried... Cakes, muffins, breads, oh my! And biscuits, cupcakes, tarts, pies, whatever!

    AASHTO and PCI

    I did not bring AASHTO or the PCI with me any of the times I took the PE structural exam. Granted, it took me three tries to pass, but I don't think not having those codes was the deciding factor for my first two failing scores. That aside, I did have the CERM and, the third time, my EET class notes, to cover certain parts of AASHTO and PCI sections that were likely to be where questions would come from. These definitely didn't cover most of either the AASHTO or the PCI codes, but did cover parts of them generally. I felt comfortable enough with these resources. My general feeling for AASHTO is it is definitely required for the SE exam, but you don't necessarily need it for the PE exam as you're not likely to see that many questions from it. Those are just my $0.02!

    Movie thread

    Saw A Star is Born over the weekend. The acting was just okay, but the music was quite good. Bradley Cooper was hot, but no surprise there. I did shed some tears at the end.

    D-Day approaching

    Yes. Cumulative spam over different test cycles certainly help. But the spam in the cycle you are currently waiting for results in is the most important. Plus, when, and only when, the spam count is met, will NCEES release the results. NCEES will not do this before the spam count is met, so it's really in your best interest to spam your hearts out.

    The Baking Thread

    Reason to know I'm a baker as well as an engineer: I keep typing "loaf" instead of "load".
  15. Ah, but the few existing books are so enticing!
  16. That would be pretty unacceptable in my book.

    Ski Season is Around the Corner!

    In my experience, ski passes were much more expensive on the East Coast. Or, at least, in Vermont, where I used to live. They seemed to be more in the $800-$1000 range for just a single mountain, if it was a bigger one (I think the pass combinations have changed a lot since I last looked though), whereas here it seems that single/double mountain passes cap around $600 for adults. I might do a four day pass thing too, but it's more like $400.

    I couldn't use the side keypad on my keyboard. Must be too advanced for a computer game from 1990.
