Yes. Pretty much a referee trying to help these guys with anger management issues and communication. Keeping the vibes positive and being fair and consistent goes a long way with these guys. So far so good!

John, good luck working on your house. Speaking from experience that can become a huge money pit.

It is still new enough that we are finishing moving in and fixing the minor things that need repaired. Hasn't been too expensive yet.......grin

Unfortunately for me and my massive remodel, the money ran out before we got to the electronics. At least I've been able to piece together a nice Carver HiFi.

I'm a structural engineer in SW Colorado.  We do a little bit of everything......residential, commercial, institutional, bridges, remodels, repairs, etc.  Some of the most interesting stuff we've done are the multi-million dollar custom homes for the big-wigs that like to have fancy vacation homes in the mountains.  Jon Pomeroy is a good friend of the family and used to be my parents' neighbor.......we've done about 90% of his projects (located in the SW).  You can see pictures of his projects HERE
 
Pretty vanilla compared to what a lot of you other guys have on your resume

 A very impressive portfolio and body of work 00cbirdw. Applause
 

And may I stress, there are no “vanilla” and/or unimportant jobs here. Occupations are like cogs on a gear, without one, the others fail. It takes a lot of interacting cogs to make a gear turn, making all of us a part of a bigger picture.

 Thanks Phildent, it’s been an interesting career but one I’m trying to wind down. After forty plus years of contracting to install these pipelines, I now provide technical support to a select number of companies.

 

That being said I just wrapped up three grueling days island hopping, inspecting a number of potential pipeline landing locations while assessing risk and feasibility for my client.

 

It can look exotic from afar, but in reality it’s just another day at the salt mine. I would rather be home with my wife, dog and trying to figure out where I went wrong with that Carver M1.5t repair and how to get back up and going.

Now that’s a challenge for me, and child’s play  for others here in CS. Hence my comments to 00cbirdw, were we are all cogs on a gear with different skill sets. Mine is not electronics but the CS group has proven to be very helpful.
 
 
 All the best
