  1. I feel like come the first ice storm there will be consequences.
  2. Who's playing in that supper bowl thingy?
  3. @CAPLS, if one is licensed as an LS and has taken the FS and PS in another state, do they need to take the CA surveying exam for the PE? Also, do civils need to take the seismic if they don't do any structural engineering? I'm debating whether it is worth my time to seek CA licensure.
  4. Thank you thank you. I don’t look a day over 92... Also thanks to those who posted birthday wishes on Facebook.
  5. You'll get something in the mail. You'll need to pay a fee and send it back in. Shortly after that you'll be issued a license. Then it will change online. Bottom line is that you aren't licensed yet just because you passed the exam.
  6. Well, how far back did you look? Because I can tell you back in 2014, CT was a few days behind the curb, that was when they used whatever the hell that horrible company was who did it back then. That was really frustrating. But even then it was better than it was when I got my PE license. I legitimately didn't get my results for my PE license until January 3rd, 2007 from the October 2006 exam administration.
  7. Barbara is a very nice and very hard working lady. She is also diligent and has been doing this for many years. She knows what she is doing and she isn't slacking off at the expense of your anxiety. Seriously. Relax. Life will go on if you don't get results today. Take it from somebody who has waited for many, many, many days for multiple exam results. When I finally passed my last exam, I actually met Barbara and thanked her for all of her patience with people like me (and now all of you). So, please, don't call her a million times. It won't help anything.
  8. Nope. I ain't touching this with a 5,280 foot pole. But seriously, don't fuck with NCEES because your career is far more important and after you get your results, you won't care anymore.
  9. California is a unique state in this regard because unless things have changed, all civil PE's must take a California state surveying exam to be licensed as a civil PE. Then, to go for licensure, you just have to meet the experience criteria, pass the FS and PS and I think that's pretty much it. But don't quote me because I am not licensed in California in any way. The person to talk to is @CAPLS
  10. Actually, I am a country fan, the problem is, they haven't made a country music song since the 70's. Whatever the hell they call this stuff these days is not country. Country is Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams (Senior, none of this junior or the third shit), Loretta Lynn, Marty Robbins, you know, country.
  11. I'm not familiar with it, but based on the title, I would say that I probably concur.
  12. Hmmm. I felt that my response was in no way insulting. I was simply making a point that the introduction isn't really the place to for it. A quick perusal of your posting history tells me all I need to know about you though. At least I didn't defraud anybody while legally stealing my home.
  13. I totally noticed that. But the guy behind me didn't. He very loudly said... "ahhh shit, that just happened!" when the reveal came. I rolled my eyes but laughed like everybody else did. Anyway, as far as Star Wars episodes go, I'll say it's a solid mediocre. It isn't bad, but it wasn't epic. I loved Ren and Rey defeating Snoke and the guards. I loved the light speed battering ram. I was unimpressed with Finn and Rose. I was super unimpressed with the Leia space floating scene. I was not sure why Luke had to die, but okay, I can buy it based on @Dexman PE PMP's analysis. But the
  14. GeoP: It is usually a good idea to join a site, engage for a bit, let people kinda get to know you, get to know the layout of the site and such then post your opinions about such topics in the relevant part of the board to generate thoughtful discussion. When you join a site, post a long, angry rant in the introduction (and apparently other parts of the board) you immediately present yourself as a troll and will not be taken seriously and may even face moderation consequences. Regardless, welcome.
  15. I guess the real question is, what type of side work are you looking to do? If you want to sign and seal some plans, you should look into insurance. Also, make sure you aren't using your employers resources to do work on the side, they don't usually take too kindly to dropping a thousands of dollars on software for it to be used to make their employees profit. If all you are wanting to do is provide advice and some consultation, then that is a lot more easily done, but of course you will need to build up a client list. They will have to know you for your work and will call upon you when th
  16. So, a couple things. Designing for 10 years into the future isn't really true. Most projects I've worked on are looking at a design year 20 years into the future, and that is not from today's date, but from the anticipated construction year. However, for big projects, I've seen a design year of 30 - 40 years out. But, to be fair, it's all just an estimate anyway. Who really knows how much traffic there will be in 10, 20, 30, or 40 years, and by that time we will almost certainly have significant advances in vehicles and the way we travel that will probably make our projections obsolete.
  17. the surveying jurisprudence exam! Yay!
  18. I much preferred the online. Unfortunately, I won't be at the CALS meeting this weekend because I'm doing my reserve duty training this weekend.
  19. It's official! I've got a current license in the system! @Road Guy or @knight1fox3, please change my name to Sapper PE LS
