[quote]For those of you who have taken it already, was it structured this way?[/quote]I took it with Ambrosio 3 classes ago and a co-worker of mine took it with McGhee just last term (Summer AP1). Based on the syllabus my co-worker showed me both classes were basically identical and were through Ce...

[quote]On another note, I'm taking Acct 701 w/ Ambrosio next semester. Can anyone provide insight ?[/quote]I had Ambrosio for ACCT 701 and he was nice and the class was super easy, even more so if you have any accounting experience or took the Acct Pre-req class. (And, honestly, I have a co-worker w...

I'm not saying you should use this exact question but I think something like Google's [link=(https://medium.muz.li/the-1-000-floor-elevator-why-most-designers-fail-googles-infamous-interview-design-challenge-a5ff9ad91741)]"How do you design the UI for an elevator with 1,000 floors?"[/link] is intere...

re: Shadow of the C, for dads playing with sons - DieDaily
I actually played about halfway through it with my son and daughter (7 and 5) and they really enjoyed watching me. It is funny, however, that they started to pick up on the subtle darkness of what you are doing. "But daddy, why are we killing these things? They didn't do anything to you." "Yea...

[quote]How is BADM 701 with White? I just looked at the schedule and he wants us to read 6 chapters a week? Seems insane.[/quote]I'm taking it this approaching session too. I know 3 other students, including a work buddy, who have taken it and they all said it was the worst class they've had in th...

[quote]ACCT 701 - Ambrosio[/quote] This class was super easy and I'd pair it up with another class but not 2 classes. That is unless, as others have said, you don't work full time or don't plan on getting much sleep for 7 weeks....

re: Have Any Of You Ever Received A Medical Bill Years After The Fact? - DieDaily
This happened to my wife and I a few years ago with an emergency room visit for my son. We received and paid the first bill they sent us and then they sent us a bill 2 years later claiming we still owed them another $400. They couldn't provide an itemized bill despite our requests for one so we c...

[quote]Anyone taking BADM 700 with Wampler?[/quote] In my experience with Wampler, those tests were about 60% straight forward multiple choice and the other 40% were like shorter or multiple choice versions of the more involved "millions of blank cells" type of questions from the homework. I als...

[quote]1) Should I be saving things like the Thunderblade and Great Frostblade for special purposes? 2) Are there more of those in the game if not? [/quote]I've mostly given up on saving weapons for specific fights. I might save one or 2 max, but nothing beyond that. It has really become a roll of...

re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - DieDaily
It doesn't necessarily make them easy, but if you headshot them with an arrow it stuns them. Then run up to their sides and you can mount them like a horse. Attack until they throw you off and try to repeat. The problem is once I've done that to them, they typically do the jumping smash attack right...

[quote]There was no extra time commitment though.[/quote]There is if the player wants to continue using that weapon and apparently this is true of all the champion weapons Link receives, though I've only acquired the Lightscale Spear myself. Then, after going through all of the trouble to get the we...

re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - DieDaily
But what you're saying isn't entirely true. After completing the Vah Ruta dungeon you receive the Lightscale Trident from the king. If it breaks (and it will break if you use it like every other weapon) a blacksmith can "repair" it for some resources. So then you either choose to just use another...

re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - DieDaily
I think you are misunderstanding. I'm not proposing Nintendo bolt ideas like mine on to what is currently in the game. I'm talking about if I was designing the combat when the game started development with the goal of encouraging weapon switching without going the durability route. Entire new enemie...

[quote]There's nothing particularly dynamic (or interesting) about a weapon breaking after 5 hits and forced to pause the action to select another generic melee weapon[/quote]But that's not what I described and it's not what has been my experience, particularly once I've gotten off the plateau.

re: Colin Moriarty has left Kinda Funny Games - DieDaily
This is disappointing. Colin was basically the only reason I watched Kinda Funny's Youtube channel or listened to their podcast. As I've seen others point out, no one else (currently) on their staff is particularly insightful or entertaining enough to hold my attention. If they make a good hire t...
