Bill,
I realise that a few years ago there was a similar thread, but since then we have had so many new members.
So can we start another one?.

Both of those pictures are of the same 6 year old, Marilyn. She tells everybody that she curled her hair by sticking her stubby screwdriver in a hot outlet(she really got a perm). She tells me she wants to be an electrician when she grows up. I tell her I haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up. I'm not even sure I want to grow up. I'm having too much fun!!!!

mr webmaster.... it would be more like you were really talking to people [and maybe they wouldn't be as rude sometimes, you know, less like they are hiding behind their computers] if their photos were next to their names in the threads... maybe with about a 20k thumbnail, or less if resolution is sacrificed some... maybe you don't have the storage space or configuration time... or maybe its just a dumb idea... for instance, i'm not sure i could ever take anything seriously that wa2ise says with his pic [Linked Image]

Re: What do you look like?II - 05/24/03 03:17 PM

Cindy,

Actually, I thought about Flags under the Names so that we could keep track of where everyone is from. But it's a moot point anyway right now because this is basically off-the-shelf software and doesn't have a thumbnail capability. There was a hack out there that would do the Flag thing, but it wouldn't go with this version.

But, bottom line is we should all be able to treat each other right without the visual aid anyway.

Greetings!!!
My name is Ryan Jackson, I am a combination inspector for Draper city, Utah. I am 25 years old and have a wife of four years, a three year old daughter and a 4 month old son. I am currently certified as a commercial building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical inspector, also a residential building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical inspector, and a building plans examiner, all through ICBO/ICC. I plan to be certified as an electrical plans examiner in a few weeks. I started as a residentail framer when I was 15 years old began doing commercial electrical work when I was 18 and could be legally licensed by the state.
I am currently on the board of directors for the Utah chapter of IAEI.
My hobbies include brewing beer and mead, and practicing full contact Kung fu.

If anyone out there needs a building code question answered you could probably do worse, so send me an E-mail and I'll try to help you out with it.

Heres me doing what inspectors in my area do best!

Posted By: Ryan_J

Re: What do you look like?II - 08/22/03 01:25 AM

Hello targetshooter. To answer your questions...mead is a drink made mostly of honey (15lbs for 5 gallons) that is similar to champagne and yeilds about 18% alcohol. Tasty stuff, but you have to be careful with it! Mead has been brewed for nearly 7,000 years. As for your other question...Take the test and show competence. I currently hold 6 certifications from ICC/ICBO. At such a young age? I started running commercial electrical installations when I was 20. Age has absolutley nothing to do with it, except for credibility, as you have just displayed. Why would you not consider being an inspector?

Re: What do you look like?II - 08/22/03 02:13 AM

i forgot to say congratulations. those are accomplishments to be proud of. mead sounds tasty.

i guess i always thought inspectors were required to have so many years of hands-on experience in their field.

i am certified unlimited in electrical but i i dont think i have the temperment to be an effective inspector. i believe i'm better suited for contracting.
Posted By: pauluk

Re: What do you look like?II - 08/22/03 09:44 AM

Welcome aboard Ryan.

Mead was quite a popular drink in England in times past. I understand it's also the original of our word honeymoon.

Apparently in ancient times in some far-off country it was the custom for the bride's father to supply the groom with mead for a month after the wedding, hence the "honey month" or "honeymoon." [Linked Image]

Gentlemen, thanks again for your warm responses. Paul: You are correct about the word "honeymoon". I believe that the thoughts were that upon marriage a couple would be given mead in the hopes of birthing a son. Nine months later, which was known to this particular culture (I don't remeber which, assyrians maybe) as a moon cycle.
Electure: You don't need to tell me, I'll tell you!!! Actually Salt Lake is a little more liberal than Provo. Thanks again.

Re: What do you look like?II - 08/23/03 11:14 PM

Ryan,

Nice to have you on the board. It is also good to have someone with other experience beside electrical work. I have a couple of questions for you. Which building code does your state follow? Here in NJ we just went to the International Residential Building Code.(IRBC) We use to use BOCA or CABO, however now under the IRBC, there is no limit to garages. Under BOCA the limit was set at 4 garages in a residental dwelling. Under the new code, it can allow more than 4 and I don't feel that this code is very safe. Any thoughts?

Hello Harold. We were one of the first states to adopt the international family of codes, and yes, we also use the international residential code. As far as garages go, I'm not sure I follow you 100%. Are you talking about 4 garages on one lot/property? If so, you are right, the IRC doesn't care how many garages you have. Your local planning/zoning department will care, however. As far as safety goes, I don't see any hazards, assuming that the code is followed. We came from Uniform Building Code land, and used to require a fire rated seperation between the garage and living space, if attatched to each other, with a hour one wall. This is no longer a requirement. My e-mail address is Ryan@draper.ut.us Feel free to e-mail me any code questions you might have and I'll do my best to help you out with them [Linked Image]

No, it's not the elevation (although when you open container vacuum packed at a lower elevation you must be careful that the contents don't blow out all over the place.)
It's the climate...the religious climate. Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, etc. are frowned upon in a big way...S

I hear you Roger! [Linked Image] About the first thing I do when I fall out of bed is get some coffee on.

I actually ran out one night a while ago and hadn't realized until it was too late. I had to wait until next morning before I could drive into town for some. Cruel & unusual punishment indeed..... [Linked Image]

Paul, thats me. I get up, put food in two cat bowls and one dog bowl, (this gets them off my back) and then I start the coffee. [Linked Image]

I hope you aren't experiencing any lingering effects of running out. [Linked Image]

A little thread jack here, how far would you guys need to go in your area for a coffee shop.

I have 3 shops from two of the areas big chains within 1 mile of my house.

As I drive a lot doing service calls it seems I am never more than 1 or 2 miles from a "fix". [Linked Image]

Is this coffee obsession going on everywhere?

Coffee used to be a must for me.I had a thermos at all times.

I'm now trying to quit smoking,and the coffee seemed to be associated with that.I drink maybe 2or 3 cups a week if that now.On the other hand, cigarettes are proving to be harder to quit. But I'm trying.

I put the pot on before I shower. Once it is done I fill my cup (22oz.) then I fill my thermos with the rest. On week-ends I drink two pots. [Linked Image]

Re: What do you look like?II - 08/27/03 01:39 AM

Russell, you can do it. I smoked for 30 years and quit. I used welbutrin and continued coffee and a beer sometimes, (now I can do both with no urge for a cigarette) these were my weakest times.

I must say I had gotten to the point that (worried every time I had a chest pain) I wanted to quit.

For those who are trying to quit smoking: GO MAN!! I quit in 1987 after 13 or so years of smoking (heavily... would rather smoke than eat kind of addiction). I can be somewhat fiercely competitive and was told that something that was only 1/30th of an ounce was kicking my butt... that seemed to make a difference in my perseverance and commitment to quit.

Also, I decided I wanted to be a 'non-smoker' not a 'quitter' so I changed the way I described my effort and began to envision myself 10- or 20- years down the road without cigarettes.

Next, I proposed a deal with my smoking co-worker (ok, ok, the cigarette was smoking and she was just the sucker on the other end...) I knew I'd have to be able to cope with other people smoking and not cave to the habit or I'd smoke for the remainder of my life. We agreed that early in my effort if things got tense for me, she'd smoke on my behalf... smoking by proxy... ahhh, that was a wonderful and effective way to satisfy that nerve-wracking edge of addiction-breaking that thwarts so many attempts. When she continued to smoke, I wasn't bothered by the fact that I was 'missing out' either. Even now if I've had a tense period of time, I'll wake from sleeping and realize that I was having a leisurely smoke in my dreams but there's no way I'd light up in reality!

Re: What do you look like?II - 03/17/04 01:54 AM

Ryan,

Sorry about not getting back for so long. Sometimes I forget where I post a message. My question about the four garages was brought about because I believe in the old BOCA codes, if you had 4 or less garages, it was considered a "private" garage. If you had 5 or more garages then it was considered a "public" garage and you went from a 1 or 2 hour fire rating to a 3 hour fire rated wall. Under the new International codes, there is no limit to the garages. ( I don't believe.)

There is a part two to this question and it has to do with Zoning. Some boards require 4 or less garages in a house only I was wondering if there was any connection between the two codes.
Posted By: Ryan_J

Re: What do you look like?II - 03/17/04 02:31 AM

Hi Harold. Generally speaking, zoning is a VERY local thing. I don't know of any zoning regulations in my city that specifically address how many garages you have on your property, but there are zoning codes that limit how many structures are on a lot, how big they are in relation to the dwelling unit and how far apart they are.

Trumpy-- you hit it right on the head, those levers are for switching trains in southwest detroit, they are located in Delray Tower, one of the last, if not the last remaining switching tower in this area,its CSX owned, and the levers used to be connected directly to the switches by heavy steel cables, now they are connected to relays and then out to the track...as much as id love to be working on the equipment, i have a good friend who is an operator there for 30+ years, i was paying him a visit and rewrapped all the handles on the levers one night.

To Marc (FrenchElectrician),

What's the make and model of the Locomotive you are on?

Looks a lot like a "CF-7", which were "Converted" F-7A full Carbody Units, Converted by Santa Fe Railroad beginning in the mid 1980's, continuing to the mid 1990's - and upto Y2K with Conversions with EMD (General Motors) GP-7, GP-9 and GP-20 Units (Cab Conversions and De-Turbocharging + a few RCE tweeks).

The Long Hood and "North American Cab", as viewed from the Engineer's side (such as your image), look very much like a Retired ATSF Model CF-7.

ATSF went through 3 Phases of Body Styles with the CF-7, and 2 Phases with the GP-7/9/20 Capital Rebuild Programs.

Once again, they are taken in the Cab of Diesel-Electric Locomotives, with me being at the Engineer's Control Panel.

The first shot shows the older - or "Legacy" type of Control Panel configuration, whereas the third one is the more current "Late 80's-1990's" configuration for Engineer's Locomotive Controls.

Here is a picture for What do you look like II. Someone snapped this of me while I was doing PPE training. I kinda like the fashionable layered look.

If I can get someone to snap one of my "naked" face without breaking their camera, I send that along as well. [Linked Image]

Mike, you can if you have it already uploaded somewhere such as say Webshots, Photobucket, or a Website somewhere.

You would copy the url betweew [img][/img] the same as do with the pictures you have posted else where.

But, the easiest way may be to e-mail a pic to one of the Moderators or the Webmaster.

Just click on a Moderators name or the contact information at the bottom of the page.

Please forgive the shoes. These are a pair of Moose hide moccasins.

When I am at home I wear them all the time. I have had this pair for about three years. It is about time to go after another pair. Poor old Sun Down (the 29 year old miniature) is about to drag me out of them.

Sun Down is still a stud and there is a mare two stalls up that is calling him so I was doing as Trumpy had ask and was holding my horse.

Some of us have wondered where Lostashell (Randy)'s been.

He's been busy with his new daughter! Congratulations, Randy!

Just wanted to drop a thank you to everyone's congrats [Linked Image] Nixyn's doing awesome (I'm typing one handed as she's in my left arm [Linked Image] ) Mommy has been awesome at absorbing alot of the sleepless nights as my little munchkin is still has her nights and days in reverse polarity

LMAO Scott, I'm praying my daughter has an easier life ahead of her than using those Kleins everyday (But I'll teach her if she has the desire to learn anyways, do 5KV gloves come in pink? [Linked Image] )

She's showing promising signs of being a project manager.. She knows the facial expressions already [Linked Image]

Re: What do you look like?II - 05/05/06 01:32 PM

Hi Trumpy:
It's a Rodgers Alexandria 820 - Electronic with two ranks of pipes. Our church bought it back in 1984 after a Yamaha electronic experienced a fairly exciting failure during a church service - started making bad noises all by itself (not from me), followed by a little smoke, and finally a short circuit which also took out part of the sanctuary lights. I hate to say this, but the breaker panel in the church is an FPE - I'm sure glad it worked on this occasion [Linked Image]. The Rodgers has been a good organ and very reliable, with only a few "down" times, some of which I have been able to fix, and others requiring a professional organ serviceman from Houston.

Randy: My congratulations, too. As my father would say, "She's a keeper". It's good that the little ones grow up to be so proud of their daddies (and mommies) and want to do what they do. Keep the Kleins handy!

Mike (mamills)

This picture is me taken about a month ago on a job in Bayonne, New Jersey. As you can see I was wiring up a 3-family meter stack as part of a townhouse developement. The PVC pipes coming up look like crap because of the way the GC layed out the pipes under the foundation. He did the pipe runs because he insisted my boss charges too much to do it ourselves so what we have is a crappy looking service that'll look that way forever. Believe me, I tried my damnedest to make them look good.

Re: What do you look like?II - 06/12/07 03:39 PM

Niko/Edward's pic from May 16 is absolutely illustrative of the work my sparky used to do, right down to the tie wraps. He almost blinded himself once, trying to make the wires pretty for a fussy client; needle-nose slipped and hit the buss. He caught a flash and sat there blind for a couple hours (working alone, unfortunately). One side of the needle-nose melted down about half an inch.

He's out of the business now, just got sick of all the customer and contractor nonsense.

I love the live steam trains. They use to have one of them around here in northern NJ on a large farm when I was a kid growing up. My dad would take us there every summer for a ride and after the ride, we would get to drink chocolate milk and bring home fresh corn. The farm was sold and they built offices on the property.
