Re: Thanks, but NO thanks..

I forget what movie it was, but there was a scene where some hollywood has beens were attending the funeral of their friend the stuntman. The hearse came into the cemetery at a about sixty miles an hour and did a handbrake turn which spun the car about 180. The rear door flies open, the casket is flung out, and slides into the waiting grave. Now, THAT's how to go out.

Re: Software 101

I almost offered to do this myself, but I'm nowhere near Seattle, or even the Left Coast.

Now, the ball is in your court, KPaul. Will you accept help from a fellow Motorcyclist?

You have to know, respect for you would jump-up several notches if you're willing to do so. It would prove several of your detractors wrong (this one included) - and I daresay they'd willingly eat Crow on this one.

Re: OK I need to vent..

Actually, in the interest of full-disclosure, I can't really be included in the "Dropout Category" any longer. I have since Highschool earned a Diploma, and a few-hundred hours of post-secondary education under my belt.

No "Titles" or anything, though.

Unless you count "Chief Ass", or "Raging Prick".

No, no, NO! Civil engineers get a bl*wjob. Mechanical engineers just get the handy.

Re: OK I need to vent..

Don't worry about it. I have a technician who works with me who is a far better engineer than this other PhDed engineer who only comes up with poorly documented gibberish spaghetti code.

Them sheepskins are waaaay overrated.

Re: Software 101

Like he's the only person who ever raised a family.

I've never stoped riding. Even if I had to trade a gun and some cash for a ratty KZ750 I still always rode no matter what. All these excuses are worse than pathetic. Where there's a will there's a way.

That BS meter is pegged!

Re: OK I need to vent..

I'm still laughing over the "what school did you go to" snobbery. As if I haven't seen some real crappy engineers from some really good schools. That "what school did you go to" crap is just a way for the incompetent to pretend a level of expertise without having to actually prove it.

For that matter the last engineer I saw fired from my workplace had a PhD but couldn't write workable programs.

So much for that old school tie shyt. The refuge of the idiot.

They're not the problem, k. It's the too-much-house and the Nordstroms card. Jeez, you're thick.

I guess I'll just go buy a battery charger and shut up. Sheesh, I put a lot of work into that.
