    I was actually offered a job w/ 15% pay increase closer to Cranston. Would mean a full on hour commute most likely, and dealing with that commute just wasn't worth that pay increase for me. I can go home during lunch .... that's a luxury I really do appreciate and am happy to "pay" for (by being paid less).

    We have a standing joke at my company that you have to pass at least 2 other projects on your way to work (we're a construction company with projects all over the place).

    I don't have kids either, if I did that would be a bigger input in saying F that short commute. My next gig search will definitely be a WFH if possible.

    Funny part is - I work in aerospace, we make engine and gearbox seals. Super specific application....

    I turn left to get to work. If I turn right, it's 15 minutes to one of our competitors instead :rofl: (but see above, next gig I want to get something WFH or at least partially, such as WFH but go to a customer site once a week or so, etc).

    I spoke too soon. I felt awful so I went home, temperature has been creeping up and is 101 now. It really feels like I could sleep it off but I have an awful headache and muscle aches so I haven't been able to. Hopefully it's short lived.

    The two shot method will do that - you got antibodies against something, and the second dose is putting them in you again. Your body will fight them, part of that is heating it up to cook and kill it (a fever).

    Interesting.
    My dad had an extended dizzy spell in the morning a couple of days after his 2nd vaccine. Later in the day he had shortness of breath and a fever as well, so they went to the ER and they told him the same thing; everything's fine, can't find anything wrong with you.

    That's just the guberment tracker and mind control running through some initial diagnostic cycles. Nothing to worry about. :tinfoilhat:

    the brain fog is real, when we had the vid, that was my biggest issue, tired but not able to sleep, and couldn't think about anything for a few days. Wife had a bit after 2nd shot as well.

    They are not injecting you with an antibodies (non-J&J), but what they inject does enter the cell nucleus and provide code to the cell to recognize the proteins of the virus. I don't want to stir up anything in this discussion, as I was on a thread a few days ago that got locked, why I don't know, but I wouldn't want this one to have the same fate.

    Autocad and their lawyers will burn in hell and are just really shitty fucking people. SCUM. They have been harassing us for almost a year, threatened us with jail and 100k in fines. We settled with them, after already buying their product and using it as was allowed...and now they are harassing us again about some other shit, and needlessly getting our pricey lawyers involved.

    FOR A FUCKING REMINDER my wife just got an email back. No action needed, nothing is wrong, but sure, lets get you charged hundreds of dollars for no reason.

    We will never use them again, and I recommend anyone using them to switch. They should all be ashamed of themselves and we are fowarding the lawyer bills for this to them as well.
    edit: our lawyer isn't charging us, so that takes some wind out of my sail.


    @Chasespeed glad your dad is home, hopefully full recovery. Those are the important things in life and my little autocad fight is meaningless in the long run!

    yeah your body builds antibodies against that protein. When it sees it again it recognizes it as a threat and now will fight it. One of the ways your body fights an infection is to bake it to do death. That’s the fever - your body heating up.

    yup don’t want to get political. Staying scientific with it.

    the Pfizer and moderna vaccines use the protein attached to the virus itself, which protects the virus. Your body recognizes that protein as a threat and attacks it and without protection the coronavirus dies.

    the two dose vaccine - the second dose will be worse because your body is recognizing a threat and fighting it. Or if you’ve had it before and your body recognizes the first dose then it would be similar for both doses.

    Did read something that a lot of those who fight it off are more susceptible to mental health issues. Whether it’s correlation or causation I don’t know I’m just some idiot on a truck forum.

    I used to work for a company where the owner knew the owner of auto desk so they would use them. I learned on inventor went to solid works and then pro e and then ran away from that and stuck to SW. I’m in QA now though so I don’t ever use cad anymore.

    But yeah cad companies can be shenanigans when it comes to licensing and use of their programs. Even if you buy it if you didn’t pay them to use it in a professional setting they’ll jerk your around.

    open source FTW. What’s your application of CAD? I know a bunch of open source programs and might be able to help steer you toward one that fits your use case the best.

    So my wife went to school for interior design, worked in it for years in Boston, and decided to carry over her skills to use it to set floor plans for weddings. So very simple just spacing of tables and seeing if things will fit and being able to show brides the potential options with their guest counts.

    She paid for their program, then they canceled it and made a new one that you constantly pay for and never own. So she sucked it up and tried to get the new one. It wouldn't download, so there was a free version on their site she download, FROM THEM. They wanted 10k for it. We thought it was a scam so ignored, they kept emailing and we kept ignoring. Then all of a sudden we got certified mail with all sorts of official shit and we sent it to the lawyer.

    They ended up settling for a couple grand, basically the price of the subscription prorated to us downloading the trial version and gave us a key to use.

    She plans on using sketch up going forward, but if you have some good programs to look at, please, let me know. :hattip: We use apple just fyi.

    @Bridge4 Nah man, its all relevant. Its all about perspective.
    Believe me, arguing with someone over money like that would have my undivided attention.

    For clarification. Dad was/is okay... getting better.
    My NIECE, is the one that was incredibly sick.
    Catch is, she was over the rona, and started to have chest pains I guess, etc.. took her to hospital...
    Guess it was pretty touch and go.

    Autocorrect was at fault. Missed it earlier...
    Bro said they were on the news tonight...

    I dunno, I don't have cable... and don't really watch TV
