    I believe it was mechanical engineering as the others have said, but it was stated in the staff vlog a while back that he didn't end up completing it.

    As a phone, I have the S9.
     
    I dont have a case on it, because all the ones that I have tried muffle call quality. Though I am lucky, today it fell 6 foot off the top of the locker on the screen on hard concrete and didnt even have scratch on it!
     
    Only other thing that bothers me are screen proctectors. I am getting scratches on the edge screen and all the screen protectors I have tried fall off within a week. Meh, I'll just grab an ifixit kit when it gets too bad

    I also run a Galaxy Tab S4 as my DD tablet. Love it so much better than the iPad

    We use an old MS Access database that was made in 2005 to access our surgeon's preference cards (what to give them for a surgery).
     
    The database is stored on a central drive on a server and is accessed by a shortcut on the desktop of each workstation that needs access to it.

    One day, the database became corrupted, so we contacted IT (we are not allowed to fix ourselves) who said "The database became corrupted because of the desktop shortcut". Note, this is the same shortcut used for years.
     
    They did not have a backup, the person who had admin rights to it has been dead for 5 years and all the hard copies of the cards hadn't been updated for 3 years.

    AlexanderAckroyd got a reaction from PonyBoyZ_ in Happy with my AIO!   
    I've been very happy with the performance of my Corsair H100x AIO of late. ( Ryzen 7 2700 with small OC)
     
    Usually ranges from 20c to 30c with 35c while gaming!
     
    It's a colder night here and this is what it is reading!
     
    What temps do you get with your AIO?

    AlexanderAckroyd reacted to LinusTech in Regarding the LTT Water Bottle   
    Like any water bottle, I would strongly recommend washing it VERY thoroughly with VERY hot water several times before using it. The smell DOES go away. I've been using mine for a while.
     
    As for it being based on an OEM design, yes of course  The main work we did was on the inks for the graphics. They look really good

    The database is stored on a central drive on a server and is accessed by a shortcut on the desktop of each workstation that needs access to it.

    One day, the database became corrupted, so we contacted IT (we are not allowed to fix ourselves) who said "The database became corrupted because of the desktop shortcut". Note, this is the same shortcut used for years.
     
    They did not have a backup, the person who had admin rights to it has been dead for 5 years and all the hard copies of the cards hadn't been updated for 3 years.
