The Wikipedia article of the day for July 20, 2018 is Ramesses VI.
Ramesses VI was the fifth ruler of the Twentieth Dynasty of Egypt. He succeeded Ramesses V and reigned for about eight years in the mid-to-late 12th century BC before dying in his forties. Egypt lost control of its last strongholds in Canaan around the time of his reign. The pharaoh’s power waned in Upper Egypt during his rule, while the high priest of Amun, Ramessesnakht, was turning Thebes in Upper Egypt into the religious capital and a second center of power on par with Pi-Ramesses in Lower Egypt, where the pharaoh resided. He was fond of cult statues of himself; more are known to portray him than any other Twentieth-Dynasty king after his father, Ramesses III. He usurped KV9, a tomb in the Valley of the Kings planned by and for Ramesses V, and had it enlarged and redecorated for himself. His mummy lay untouched for fewer than 20 years before pillagers damaged it. The Egyptologist Amin Amer characterises him as “a king who wished to pose as a great pharaoh in an age of unrest and decline”.

Professional Engineer Exam: what is detail description of courses for transcripts?

Hi all,

I am taking the PE exam in California. NCEES asked me to provide a list of detail description of each courses I took in my master and bachelor. I think the reason is that those degree were taken outside of the US.

Anybody needed to do the same? Where can I find such detail description of courses?

Feeling stupid

Feeling stupid

I started a new job (Graduate Engineer) this week at an amazing company but I cant help but feel useless.

Im an automotive engineer by degree but the job is prodominantly electrical. I know very little and feel like my colleagues expect me to remember stuff the first time, or know things I dont (mostly routine stuff at the company).

Is this normal? Im usually the person who gets asked to help, being on the reverse of that role feels really intimidating.

I was told there would be a plethora of training… and there isnt as of yet.

Measuring Breakaway Torque and Prevailing Torque

Measuring Breakaway Torque and Prevailing Torque

Newbie here with zero experience with torque wrenches. I have a digital torque wrench and I would like to measure the breakaway and prevailing torque of a screw + nut system (at 90, 180 and 270 degrees). How do I do this?

Can I get away with Brics CAD?

Can I get away with Brics CAD?

Civil engineer, private practice. Haven't had to do much drafting in a decade or so. I'm going after a job where I will need to work with a surveyor's files and draft a site design. I don't know who they will be using for survey yet, so I don't know what format/software the surveyor will use, but I assume it will be AutoCAD. I can't justify the expense of an AutoCAD license for this one project, and I can't do AutoCAD lite, because I will need Autoturn.

Can anyone offer experience with BricsCAD? Will there be any headaches with using the surveyor's files if they are done in AutoCAD? I'm old school – used to do R14, and I'm pretty handy with the commands. Stopped with AutoCAD 2004. Any thoughts on what the learning curve might be like in making the switch to Brics CAD? Are there any other headaches I should anticipate? Thanks!!
