    Oh... *confused*... Ahem... Would you mind explaining a bit about the difference between moderators and ambassadors? I'm confused. :S
    I can't edit/delete threads or issue folks warnings or in extreme cases ban their account. All I do is help answer questions and welcome new members to the forums. That is about it.

    Nothing new.
    You could clearly see how many updates are pending. I have a habit of skipping updates. I only update an app if it has new features

    Ah got it, thanks. I don't know why but I've always thought that "Ambassador" is higher than "Moderator". :p

    In a different context, repetition of the same thing becomes rather lame especially name calling so I think it's best to leave it alone.

    It's one of the reasons why people don't have much interest in engineering these days. There's lots of maths behind it but people can't grasp the practical side until they start realising where it comes from. Engineering is simply practical science. Most people don't realise that. The maths are there so you have a foundation for understanding.

    If you're not interested in maths intensive subjects then you don't go out of your way to figure out the practical reasons for it.

    I work in the electrical industry without math our understanding of what electricity is would go out the window.

    Engineers are never good at maths, believe me. :P

    40 updates pending? Well... I always leave them auto-updated, though I know the risk.

    No, especially the ones not present in wordflow. Yours was still a different case

    Ahh, again I wasn't focusing at you. I'm talking in general, it's the most trending joke nowadays on social networking sites.

    Like I said, I only update apps/games with new features or some zombie apps which I know wouldn't get an update soon

    Well, there's generalization and then there's reality. I'm not going to say every engineer I've met has been amazing but I'd say it's a very small percentage that are questionable. As for social media, I wouldn't trust trends on that. Anything to put down people with any intelligence these days.

    Being dumb is the new cool. It's been a growing trend since the late 80s. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be slowing down any. Technology should be helping us become better and smarter but all it's doing is making people lazy. With the amount of information at everyone's fingertips I was expecting more from the internet. It would appear that my expectations were exaggerated. :P

    I tend to use more statistics and general math skills in my day to day activities and yes I am an engineer, been one for about 20 years. This does not preclude me from having to open an old text book every now and then for solving a heat transfer or fluid flow problem and solving complex equations. Sometimes thermodynamics and reaction engineering require some specific math application as well.

    There are of course engineering tools that people use on a daily basis to help with things but sometimes going back to the books is the easiest thing to do.

    Then there's arguing with people over standards, specifications and sometimes simple schematics. :/
