Just wanted to give people some inspiration. Between 2015 and 2019, I did the following:
Trying to be somewhat vague to remain anonymous, but my new role involves cloud engineering, infrastructure as code (IaC), and coming up with creative solutions to process data. My technician role involved troubleshooting networking equipment for customers.

I apologize for the crappy editing. New to GIMP...image manipulation is not my strong suite. If anyone knows of an easy way to obfuscate and highlight (the way I can with Greenshot or ShareX editors in Windows) in Gimp or another Linux app (I'm a recent convertee and chose Manjaro), I'm all ears!
I am literally a stereotypical national guard guy, what the fuck. I bought handguns, cigars and a motorcycle, I go to the gym every day and never make any progress, and I go to sleep at like 9pm every night. I drive a 2015 toyata tundra. Me and my coworkers all have a clingy, slightly insecure, slightly funny looking girlfriend. One time my girlfriend and my battle buddy's girlfriend picked us up on the same day and they were like carbon copies. Fucking scary.
Now I just need to fall off my motorcycle and get fat, then I will have achieved full NG wizard status.
Hi all, I am in NSW and have a big brand moderate performance vehicle. I took it in for a scheduled service today and got a call around 3:30pm that the tech had been involved in a crash. The manager gave a story that the other driver conducted an illegal u-turn and crash into the side of the car and admitted fault immediately.
I retrieved the dash cam from the car, which shows the vehicle turning at a roundabout and flooring it to 96 in a 60 zone, at which point the u-turning car hit the driver's side.
I've attempted to contact the manager at the dealer and sent a screenshot of the time of impact showing the speed as 94 but have heard nothing back.
I contacted my insurer who advised that the claim would most likely be rejected as the crash occurred after the technician committed an illegal act. The car is still under finance with about half it's insured value owing.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? I'm thinking of asking for a new car as the damage may be repairable but is pretty severe.
I completely understand my insurer likely won't cover it, and I've heard that in NSW the dealer/business takes on responsibility.
Does anyone know how this would work in relation to the dealer/business's responsibility / what they are likely to / should provide as compensation?
EDIT: Car is a Mustang GT, and it turns out it's a 50 zone not 60.
EDIT2: I'll share the footage when I can, I'm hoping it will offer some leverage (but I also recognise I might be going full American and expecting damages, aggravated damages and exemplary damages (/s) for what is realistically just a car.)
I've repaired thousands of ThinkPads. Ask me anything related to the repair process!
As per the title. Do you think one should open with giving them 'Domain Admin' privileges?
Who do you think that is?
They have high flyers and luchas and some hosses, but no one that I think of as a pure technical wrestler. (Admittedly I don’t watch either of the Dark shows other than occasional highlights so if they haven’t been on Dynamite or I could’ve somehow missed someone on TV.)
Seems like having a few Malenko types would create some great contrasts to try to ground and chain wrestle Darby or Fenix or counter some of the brutes.
Who would you say are the top technical wrestlers on the roster — and yes I understand being a really good lucha or brawler or any other type wrestler takes a degree of technical ability, but I’m talking more ‘pure wrestler’ type.
Interested to see people’s thoughts.

Hey guys! Recently I’ve noticed a lot of you have questions about what sleep studies look like, what equipment is used, and what happens during them. I’ve worked running polysomnographs for the last three years. I’m currently at a lab researching sleep apnea, but I’m in pursuit of my Registered Polysomnographic Technician certification for more clinical applications and for the purpose of “scoring” studies as well.
I also have DSPD myself, which often looks more like N24 - my endogenous rhythm runs about 25.25 hours. If you have any questions on chronobiology or circadian rhythms, I’ve received most of my tertiary education on the subject and on neuroscience and biology in general. I also often teach high schoolers about the subject! I’ve had DSPD pretty severely since I was 11/12, and was out of school for most of the time after.
Ask me anything! I’m at work right now :)
EDIT: Keep asking questions if you have them! Can report I’ve been home from work for over a day now haha but will still answer questions about electrodes or CLOCK genes or crazy patient stories or whatever :)
As I write this I have a technician replacing some parts in a DELL G7 7590. Originally the computer had fallen and the casing suffered damage, we sent it to DELL under warranty in order to get it fixed. After getting it back we encountered some issues:
After contacting them, they send this older man that's currently working on it. When he entered he said, "So, what's the problem?" My gf mentioned the RGB backlit keyboard and all I remember him saying is that he didn't know anything about any RGB. Then she tried to explain more but the guy's on a bad mood since he came into my apartment complex so he just dismisses her and asks me, "What did Support say?" It's as if he just assumed she was blathering nonsense instead of actually trying to understand what she was saying.
As he fixed it (my gf in the other room), he starts saying in very low volume, something around the lines, "she's better off in the other room. Best for her and best for me 'cause I can already see. . . . How can you talk about something that you don't know about? Know what I mean?" Honestly just to not antagonize him (since he has the parts and he probably can do job better than me) I kinda just went along, but in my mind I kept thinking, "What the fuck is this man talking about". It was hard to listen to the guy since he muttered his words under a facemask (covid right?), and then he alluded to having to deal with the support people. Then he showed me some computer part and he said "See, it says RGB", and I said, "Oh great", and then he went on to say, "What was she saying then? Because it says RGB." I said that she basically meant that that's what we wanted, and then he says something like "nevermind. . . we're not talking . . . ". He also alluded to not loving his job, saying something like, "I've been working about on year in this job - know what I mean?"
Honestly I'm being vague in my storytelling and sitting near this guy has been a pretty uncomfortable experience, but I'm just surprised how out-of-touch some of these technicians are (not the first time). My gf also had an uncomfortable experience with a Lenovo technician, but that's another story.
EDIT: As some have noted, this technician is outsourced to Worldwide Tech Services. I forgot to add that when he left he said (in a light manner), "It was a hard job. They don't pay me enough for this." He was an olde... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's probably an exaggeration calling Med Lab Science 'the profession with 50 names' (we got this phrase from a reddit user a few weeks back).
However, you could get close to that number if you listed all of the names we are known by in different countries and various languages: Medical Laboratory Scientist, Clinical Laboratory Scientist, Medical Laboratory Technician 🥼 and so much more - sometimes even our family members do not know exactly what we do. Whereas when you compare 'Doctor' or 'Nurse', these names are common-place wherever you go and their job description is self-evident and understood by almost anyone.
On this note, we made a post on Facebook and Reddit asking what names users would suggest if we had to choose just one moniker for people in our field. From these responses (quite fascinating), we made a video on RoK Diagnostics Podcast and found about 2 that we like.
Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqxqD93KXh0

As a serviceman, I really appreciate when a customer offers their restroom, some water/coffee or even food (if they’re cooking). I return the favor by going above and beyond the job and will even throw in a couple of extra services, on the house. We work in our trucks all day and, especially with covid, it’s hard to find a restroom and it’s slightly awkward to ask the customer. So it’s appreciated when it’s offered.
Did a technician you work with do something completely dumb, extremely funny, or just simply amazing? Go ahead and post it here and let the rest of us join in and read what they did!
I understand I am a mandated reporter. The patient’s guns were stripped from him years ago by the state due to his mental health issues.
There is zero indication that he is a danger to himself or others. But he admitted to me that he kept some of those guns. Should I report this?
If this post is inappropriate in this subreddit, please let me know where I can post for advice. Thanks.
