| O-T Lounge|| re: Any MRI service engineers here? - Gaston on 2/25/15 at 3:40 pm|
I tried to out of college, but since I didn't have any technical service experience like servicing copiers I didn't get the job. I'd worked in a vacuum lab for 5 years and fixed (troubleshot the problem more like it) all sorts of equipment including ion pumps and mass spec units. I was deciding on...

That incredibly good looking former Oregon cheerleader covers the meets for the SEC network. Maybe she was going to be there.
| O-T Lounge|| re: Did any of you feel stuck in college? - Gaston on 2/24/15 at 7:34 am|
Nope. I was interested in every technical class I took though. I took classes with engineering students who DGAF, but I often think they end up making great managers. When I start into the details of my analyses I can tell who the upper management types are...the ones that who could care less abo...

Amanda Pflugrad covers the action, she's the former Oregon cheerleader. Fine as a nanotube.

I think that it's impossible to explain a functioning mechanical piece to someone, especially when it defines a style or philosophy to the owner. The manual transmission in my 5 series is the most amazing piece of engineering I own, but it's more than the sum total of the parts, it's something you ...

It's actually nice. I'm not sure I'd rather live anywhere in LA over this town.

I do think their shrimp poboy is the best they make. I wouldn't ask for it dressed any different than they normally make it unless you want a serious "shut the frick up whitey" look.

Tons of amazing places around there. Search rock climbing Sedona, and check out the directions. I'm not telling you to actually climb that soft rock, but the directions to parking and the hikes to the base are exactly what you want. Spires, all sorts of stuff. Start with that google search and l...

No, I mean zero (OK, I'm wrong about the zero), badass watches (serious in house movements where a technician hand builds the watch) come with bracelets. I can't afford those watches, but look at enough and you'll notice that it lumps Rolex, Omega...whatever in tier of jewelry watches with bracelet...

Look for Ollech and Wajs on eBay, I bought one for $50. Changed the hands a few times until it exploded. I then bought a NOS one with a hacking 2824, but I had it worked on by a jewelry store dude, custom hands again. I want to change the dial though, I think it would be fun. They're harder to wo...

The craftsmanship is awesome. The lugs are horrible design to me though.
I wonder what percentage of the total cost is for the movement. ...
