    I drink coffee for pleasure. I've reduced my caffeine intake in the last little while.

    If I have too many now I get irritated as well.

    For what it is worth you could of Been painting another room and then talking about how Good your lounge room looks :p
    But that wouldn't make much sense in the way I wrote things.

    I'm just glad I'm done with that room, for now.

    Though I do have the stairs still...

    Though 99 does workshops, I did a 40 minute presentation and answered questions.

    My wife does workshops as well. She's a certified trainer.

    I could agrue that it'd be better to make the bachelor's degree free, and by doing that, the associate's degree would be free also.

    But in my line of work, I still see youth who are doing well for themselves with an associate's degree or even in trade school. My biggest gripe is that I don't think our high school education still prepares youth as well as it should for college or trade school. It is also interesting how people still **** over vocational (trade) schools, with the perception that they're for troubled students. There are youth who even an associate's degree isn't helpful because their high school skills as fsr as writing tests and academic papers aren't great...yet they're dynamite in a kitchen, in an auto garage, or on a construction site...

    I agree wholly with you. I believe in education and think people should educate themselves as much as possible (the debate of how good the school system is being another topic altogether) but I think people should peruse things that suit them and not feel pressured to go to university or college to get degrees 'just because'.

    In Canada, Australia and here in the UK, many seek out degrees because they've been told by the media, parents and schools that without a degree you're a failure of some sort. Not in those words but that's the impression. There's been this neglect of vocational subjects for some time and it's really sad. There's nothing wrong with trade jobs and they pay a lot better than most people think.

    Not to mention that schools turning into nothing more than degree machines is pretty sad as well. I know lots of colleges and universities are heading that way. Cancelling certain degrees because they're not supposedly 'valued'.

    And mine are usually 1-2 hours long with young people, depending on the request of the agency or community partner.

    I was seeing this when I was in college and I won't lie, it made me very disinterested. I can only imagine how much worse it has gotten.

    Just goes to show you that we all cannot be lawyers, business owners, doctors, and the other high flash positions. There are some crane operator and plumbers out there making great money that some of these lawyers won't ever see. But hey, that's post modern society for you, I guess...

    Forget that. I guess I'm used to doing things on the spot instead of practicing and practicing. The more I practice the more I think I'll forget something important.

    You don't memorise training. :P

    Typically there's a training program written by the person doing the training and you follow that through the training. There's time schedule and what you're covering on the day. Your training needs to be geared towards the people you're training as well.

    If you're doing a powerpoint presentation you have presenter notes available to cue you about what you're going to say.

    It's sometimes good to wing it but you should have an idea of what you'll be saying, even if you wrote it.

    Since I've worked in various positions in life and because I'm in engineering and have seen different processes we often ignore the little things that make our lives easier and we forget that even though there's a level of automation behind those things there's also people required to keep things ticking.

    All is good so long as you have water to drink and your waste goes somewhere.

    I believe when waste removal employees go on strike is when people start to realise how important they are. Same goes for any 'service' we tend to ignore on a daily basis.

    I don't believe in 'little people' as the rich tend to think of them and look down their noses at them. We're all human and those little people's jobs are probably more important than theirs 80% of the time...

    This has been a long day. Too damn tired to think straight really.

    In other news I'm still having issues with my crap internet at home. I can't believe that it's so bad. Sigh.

    Also I'm really annoyed how horrible W10 handles a NAS. I had to go static IP so that if I ever loose internet or need to restart it (happened a few times in the last while) it doesn't end up with a different IP address rendering it useless and needing to remap the drives.

    It was so much easier with W7 and W8. I have no idea why it's got so difficult with W10. I feel sorry for anyone without some knowledge in networks wanting to have home network storage. W10 has messed it up for simplicity. It looks like NAS suppliers need to work out a way to make things easier instead of it being native to the OS. No more DCHP... :/

    Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

    The reverse happens. The more you practice, the more it builds confidence and you remember important things.

    The little people make the world go round. I have the same level of respect for the sanitation worker as I do for astrophysicists (the only folks I don't care for are politrickians).
