i have been thinking about my 3 day adventure in making my own 24 pin atx cable. I was trying to use 12 and 14 awg wire so it would be stiff enough to train and make it look like I want. I think the wire is too big for these pins no I know it is. it will work fin for 4 pin molex connectors but not for this. so I am going to try to use 16 awg wire covered with heatshrink and then sleeving to achieve the stiffness I want. what dose everyone thing will I have better luck??

Yup. That right there. Hard work and a brain.
I happen to have a salaried position with a bonus too, but this was after quite a long spell of unemployment after losing what was was going to be my career originally, so I'm glad to be where I am!

Agreed.


I'm not purposefully bringing a bad tone into the conversation, but no matter the location in the "developed" world, hard work trumps everything! thumbsupsmiley.png
I can't say I know how it works for anything but the RAF and SAS in the UK though, so again, grain of salt and all that...

I think Scott's an electrical engineer or something like that, but I'm not sure. It's something to do with zap-zaps.



Thanks - T

there obviously are good jobs but with 60 million people in a country that you can drive from top to bottom in about 8 hours its kinda more about the people you know

Yeah, that's the one part that I know I don't know about. It's not the same population (U.S. is obv. greater), but the far more concentrated population density that makes that such a pain (especially in the south), at least from what I know!




Scott must be on a plane or something.... stun.gif

Yeah, I'm kinda in the same boat... I went to college - for a BFA rolleyes.gif Didn't finish though, started my own business in my last year and started a full time job at the same time... basically, I just didn't see how I was going to live until I had a sufficient portfolio to be doing contract work - and honestly I'm just not that great an artist. biggrin.gif

Long story short - unless I had lucked into a top management position at a major international gallery or auction house - there's no way I'd be making as much money as I do now. Of course, I work as a programmer and IT manager - absolutely nothing at all to do with art (and therefore nothing to do with anything I studied in college). redface.gif

Of course, maybe I'd have gotten lucky and caught the eye of some rich loser in LA or NYC and wound up selling some messy abstract paintings for $100K each... so I could actually be getting screwed. In another dimension I might be Jackson Pollock - I should find that version of me and hit him up for a loan... thinking.gif
