Just get a safety vest and maybe a clipboard. People will think you're in charge.

I can't even count how many times I've been in a place and random people thought I worked there because I wear a hi-vis vest lol.


Lmao, I work in a very casual office where everyone is wearing jeans and graphic tees. They'd all have a pretty good laugh if I came in with a hi-vi.

Holy ****, we have 8 contractors at my office right now putting up white boards, and ****. It's absolute chaos, I'm over today. Dust from dry walls is everywhere.

Dark (black or dark blue) WRX?  Thanks, I'll miss it when it's gone!

Dark gray with the tinted windows, I went south bound on Moray.

Just saw @IanB this morning in that sick AMG Wagon. I was the psycho in the WRX that flew out of Woodhaven onto Portage at around 8:12a.m.

Good luck with that sale, that wagon looks unreal!

From AutoX yesterday, I sucked but it was fun and I didn't DNF at all! Also didn't realize how sensitive my dash cam is to bumps. (Excuse the stupid video cuts, I used some free video combiner online).

You should probably call an ambulance, and not drive if you have a heart attack.

Not saying it isn't stupid, but damn don't over exagerate.

And if driving a little more distance means you don't have to wait as long, isn't that an acceptable trade off?

Idk, didn't read too much into what they're doing, but they're modelling it after what they do on Vancouver, Calgary, and Ottawa. All of which have less ER per capita than we do with less wait times. If it works there, why not try it here. Because clearly the system here doesn't work very well.

I live close to East St. Paul, so the closest hospital to me is HSC which is about a 20-25 minute drive. To the Concordia is was about 5 minutes, so I can see why a lot of people are pissed about that. But yeah I think it's not the worst decision to do and just convert those ERs into Urgent Care.

What they should have done was ran ads to inform people of what the purpose of an ER is and what Urgent Care do. They also should give nurses the ability to turn people away if they come to the ER for a stupid reason, I'm sure that would cut wait times down significantly. Although if someone cuts themselves pretty badly in the moment I can see how panicking makes them want to go to the ER and not really think about it.

I don't know what that means but I'll take your word for it.

It's Amazons platform for hosting websites and scaling them. When not many people are on your site there's only a few servers cause you don't need that many resources. But if it gets super busy they make more servers to handle the traffic so it doesn't slow down the site.

Pretty stupid by the sounds of it. If they're gonna have it like that they should have servers that can handle the load of everyone trying to get on.



Shameless plug for AWS EC2 here, it's actually so great everyone needs to get on it.

Apprenticeship MBs website and course registration process for technical training is absolutely retarded. Website is slow as hell from literally thousands of people logging in at once.

I wanted to go started January 30th of next year or April but all those spots were taken up within 10m.

That blows, is it just a once a year registration? Or can you get into it in the summer / fall?

They'll tell you when you get there. but always look at your next two-three moves, as the way you handle one cone will have a big impact on how you can take the other cone.

Don't be afraid to ask for one of the guys there to sit in your car and give you feedback as you are driving.

Lastly, definitely try and keep two hands on the wheel, it helps. I still haven't broken my habit of only having one on the wheel, as that's how I drive every day but it sucks when I go to Autocross.

Thanks for the tips! Oddly enough I drive one-handed in automatics but since I got my WRX in 6MT I always drive with both hands.

Definitely a bit nervous since it's my first time, but it should be a blast!
