    [–] I drew a perfect bracket. jnicho15 1 points ago in oddlysatisfying

    Mine are just terribly deformed 3's when I'm writing code

    [–] If you could take a bath in anything you wanted, what would it be? jnicho15 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I think probably more like 80-something. The body generates heat so there's a heat gradient through the skin. If your skin was 98.6, your internals would be much too hot.

    [–] Which companies shat on their own customers? jnicho15 2 points ago in AskReddit

    For video, at least there's now stuff like Resolve. But Photoshop/illustrator are in a league of their own. Id gladly use CS2 over a new open source thing.

    [–] Not quite what I wanted.. jnicho15 1 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    Photoshop idiot here. CTRL+D is used to deselect.

    [–] What "typical" sound can't you stand? jnicho15 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Then that's just unintentional coil whine. Basically, you can make a switching power supply more efficient/cheaper by switching at a lower frequency. Nice ones switch at at least 20kHz so no one can hear it, but some are 15-20kHz, so it annoys younger people.

    [–] How much did your GPA drop when you started to take actual engineering classes? jnicho15 1 points ago in EngineeringStudents

    Depending on the school, 100/200 level classes might have like 80 kids (20 per lab session), but higher level classes will be more like the smaller number they claim.

    [–] What is a true fact that sounds like a conspiracy theory? jnicho15 1 points ago in AskReddit

    If you get a patent, it's public. That's the trade-off. Either keep it a trade secret and don't have legal dibs, but it stays private, or patent it publically and get dibs for a while.

    I mean it's not like going to melt the wire though

    [–] Grammar Nazis of Reddit, what mistake bothers you the most? jnicho15 2 points ago in AskReddit

    In the FIRST Robotics competition, 8 teams each chose two teams to partner with for half of the competition. When a top 8 team invites another team to join their alliance, the invited team has a chance to accept or deny the invitation.

    Most teams say "Team [name] graciously accepts." That makes no sense. You are not showing them grace by accepting their invitation, you are grateful.

    Even worse, when a team declines, the usual (correct) response is "Team [name] respectfully declines." A couple weeks ago, I heard a team graciously decline.

    This in in front of a crowd of hundreds or thousands.

    There's a pretty big discussion about this in the FIRST community.

    If you've got around 20mΩ of internal resistance in each battery and one is charged at 12.5V and the other dead at 10.5V, that's only like 50A max. Not that insane. Still not good though.

    [–] In case of fire jnicho15 2 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    Back when people used docking stations where you just have to shove a huge button to remove the laptop?

    Maybe every other robotics competition doesn't care about having shows a week late...

    [–] The new Lego Spike Prime robotics kit teaches engineering to middleschoolers jnicho15 2 points ago in gadgets

    I doubt it. It seems like EV3/NXT is much more capable and well established in FLL.

    [–] Any time we even attempted it. jnicho15 3 points ago in FRC

    I've found a strong correlation between success in this test and electrical board location. 548 used to have electronics on our belly pan hardly accessable underneath a bunch of stuff and always failed. Now, we have split side panels and have (almost) no problems. The exception is that someone failed at crimping the Anderson the powers the RIO so it temporarily died once.

    Castaway Bay has one as well

    [–] An unpaid internship is nothing like actual slavery jnicho15 0 points ago in Jokes

    At my engineering school, you pay a little bit for the "matchmaking" done by the school for a co-op, then you make a ton more money. You can get "technical elective" credit from it.

    [–] Wasn't aware this could happen jnicho15 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Or you could have put the sticker on like the bottom or back of the case when you built it...
