Not the "most correct" answer.

>>104936
>>104937
>>104940

Is the correct answer. When the FAA test was written, radial engines still walked the earth and centrifugal, gear driven, superchargers were the norm.

Anything that blows air into the intake is a supercharger, which can be exhaust driven (turbo-supercharger), mechanically (belt or gear), or electrically driven. (Like those sweet ebay kits.)

The "turbo" prefix means drives or is driven by a moving fluid. (Like air or water.)

> Any devices that extracts energy from or imparts energy to a continuously moving stream of fluid can be called a Turbomachine.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbomachinery

>>104939
Here's more sample questions:
https://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/test_questions/

Here's another good one I found:

Which of the following determines oil and grease specifications for lubrication of propellers?
A) Airframe manufacturers.
B) Engine manufacturers.
C) Propeller manufacturers.

It seems obvious... but IS IT?!? (Fuck if I know.)

I think it's the airframe mfg. I believe they're responsible for the whole package, parts included. I'd have to look it up, probably in the CFRs... somewhere.
>> No. 10326 ID: 9dcda2
  >>104935
> Aye, turbos are generally exhaust driven

By definition, always.

> hence the problem of "turbo lag".

It's more accurately called "boost threshold". Centrifugal compressors need pretty high RPM to operate. So if you're cruising, the engine isn't producing much for exhaust flow and the wastegate is blowing most it around the turbo's turbine anyway. Once you punch it, exhaust flow is increased, the boost controller or engine's ECU commands the wastegate closed, and the turbo starts to speed up. As the RPM increases, the turbo's compressor starts to become efficient and really move air.

Turbo lag was an issue with older designs, with the pinnacle being the 70's era Porsche 911s. This was before intercoolers were popular for cars, so to prevent heating the intake charge excessively, they had to use a large turbo.

(Formerly) My 2010 Mazdaspeed 3, in 4th gear

0 secs -6.4 psi 2616 rpm 43.5 mph
1 secs 11.54 psi 2824 rpm 47.2 mph
2 secs 16.7 psi 3212 rpm 53.44 mph
3 secs 18.43 psi 3660 rpm 60.27 mph
...
10 secs 17.21 psi 6122 rpm 102.53 mph

(On a closed course with a professional driver, don't try this at home)

That thing pulled like a raped ape, then then you shove it into 5th gear, and it keeps pulling. Everyone says that 300+hp in a FWD car is a bad idea. They're right. With the stock motor mounts that thing torque steered like a mother. The hard polyurethane engine mounts helped and also transmitted every noise the engine or transmission made directly to your brainballs. I thought it was rad, but my passengers frequently voiced their disapproval, which I couldn't hear over the transmission anyway.

  >>104935
> Speaking of - I saw an video showing off a concept for a "lag free" turbo design that was driven via a belt from the engine. It used a gearing system to get the compressor speeds up to something usable from the slower belt speed coming off the engine

Just figured I'd put this out there.

If you guys ever order food over the phone, be it at a restaurant or ordering pizza, please don't put it on speaker.

It's already difficult to hear with all the noise, but speaker makes so hard to hear. And it's somehow always our fault that factors they control make it difficult to hear them.

Customer service: it's not that they're always right, it's just we're always wrong.

Actually just never use speaker phone. My boss will often call me, using the speaker, while on speaker with a conference call and on speaker with his other cell phone. And then he talks fast.

When on the phone or in person, I have good results when I tell someone "I can't hear what you're saying" if I can't hear them, or "I don't understand what you're trying to tell me, what is it that you want?" if they're babbling complete nonsense. Some people just get ahead of themselves and/or can't fucking communicate.

In your case, I'd tell them "I'm sorry, it's noisy in the restaurant and I can barely understand what you're saying, would you pull your head out of your ass and use the phone like trained primates are able to?"

Or something like that.

That shit is annoying as frack. It probably annoys me more when they are jabbering into to the thing and then bringing it to their ear and just continuously doing that. I don't know why that bothers me more then regular speaker phone shenanigans but it does.

Really people on cell phones in public generally bother me. Something about mobile phones make people assholes. When they first happened it was only used by assholes needed status symbols but now every one has them. Walking down the street, driving their cars, even fucking riding bikes, completely and udderly oblivious to their surroundings or anyone else. Noisy as shit, talking loudly as fuck and usually with the modern urban affectation that seems to be half "you know what I mean" or something similar.

Rude motherfuckers. Don't give a shit if they are ruining your conversations or music or whatever but heaven help you if you start talking over them of ask to them keep it down. Fucking acting like you just insulted their daddy they never met. Its gotten even worse with all the faceboob and twatter bullshit, now people just ain't talking but doing that online bullshit drama anywhere they go. Seems like more fights nowadays are started by facebook drama then anything else.

Fuck gun control, needs to be cell phone control. People need to prove they can handle a cell phone, that they can speak FUCKING ENGLISH, and actually have more manners then a shit slinging simian.

I have one. Bought from china and it works for a house sized area in theory I swear only in theory


It's not illegal to own one in my locale though operating one would be very illegal, similar to HAM radio stuff being able to TX on frequencies your not allowed to use, in that regard.


Though if you were to use one in a localised area to kill mobile signals I can't imagine people would even realise what was going on for the most part.

It's a rare day when I look into a client's eyes and think they're going to be dead soon. A white woman in her fifties, dark sunglasses, started crying as soon as she got into the office. She described a horrific situation with her boyfriend. Threats on her life (often at gunpoint), she isn't allowed to keep a phone, she has no ID, no cash, no social security card, she took a risk just leaving her house today. She wore a bandana over her head; I suspect he makes her shave her hair. I could've made her disappear, if only she'd let me. We contract with a local women's shelter. "Just call this number, and you'll be taken to a confidential location. I'll let you borrow my phone." She just couldn't fucking do it. In addition to the cats she has at home, she has three urns holding the remains of her mother, her late husband, and a daughter. Came at her from another angle. Make a plan. Only saving grace is that she's LDS. Say what you will about Mormons, but they tend their flock. I provided her with a number for a local ward, and told her to walk me through her plan. I stressed the utmost importance of making a clean break: go to a friend or relative unknown to the abuser, no contact, no going back. Leaving is the most dangerous time for a DV victim. You vanish, or you get killed. She sort of muddled through what she was going to do. She would return home, get some important paperwork she needed, and reach out to the church in hopes someone will take her in.

She won't, of course. She'll stay where she is, dependent on the bastard for everything, until she's hospitalized and he finally ends up in jail, or she's killed. I don't have much hope for this one. I'll follow her case in the system; I pray for an address change, but I fear a case log entry will one day read "Terminate benefits. Client deceased."

Stupid question, but should I turn in my uniforms to Bass Pro? I haven't done it yet because I'm waiting to replace a part on my scooter, so I'm not making any trips that aren't commuting right now.

But, I've been thinking about it and I've technically more than paid for them by having $2 taken out of every paycheck to pay for a laundering service I never used, because I just wash them at home.

And there's nothing they can really do with them, they can't reuse the uniforms since they have my name on them and are really worn in. I've noticed the company provides new clothing to everyone wheh they issue uniforms too. They'd probably just be throwing them away or recycling them.

Should I just say fuck it and keep them? I don't care about the shirts, I wouldn't have many pants if I turned them in, except for some cheap jeans.

Fffffffuck.

Worked solo this morning as a busser when a surprise 40 top appeared.

They originally called in an 18 top and we prepared the space for 18, but when they arrived they had 20 more people with them.

BITCH, there's a reason we ask how big your party is on the phone, so we can make the accommodations before you arrive and not have to rush around to get everything ready.

On top of that, the server was stupid and fucked up splitting the checks, forcing them to stay for 45 minutes and when they figured they would have to ask each individual person what they ordered, they said fuck it and gave them the food for free.

They sent that server home early.

Why were they not turned away?

Here at my work anytime we let someone use a room for some meeting or bullshit we usually ask before hand how many people are coming, though not always. Most of the times its closed groups but sometimes its some open event where we gotta expect a possible shitton of people.

We usually allow some breathing room for a few extra people for the closed events but if its way over the estimation we usually tell the people to reschedule. The room we set up for them isn't set up for that many people and we don't have enough staff available to deal with that many people. If the room is too crowded it can violate fire codes and other possible hazards to the point my work cannot allow it just because they don't want to get sued.

While it's incredibly annoying to have large parties, they're more than welcome. They're good for business.

That said, them coming in as early as they did stretched our resources out because the morning is usually not that busy, so you get the skeleton crew.

Then they had to get the retard of a server who looks like a caveman and sounds like Mickey Mouse getting throat fucked by Bobcat Golthwait listening to a Roseanne Barr self help tape.

A large party and lots of hard work wasted because their meal was comped. That's money out of my pocket, no tipshare or sales share from that.

Huzzah, I'm happy about this coming week's schedule.

Not a single bussing shift, just expo and to-go. I'm trying to set it up to where I'm either working in to-gos which will lead to serving or working in the kitchen, which will make the managers happy since I'm reliable and versatile. I'm just sick of bussing, I don't want to deal with girls almost half my age talking down to me and throwing a hissy fit whenever I don't roll over and accept it.

Assessed a client today, black male. I was really having trouble getting him to open up. When asked if he goes to church, he mentioned he's Muslim,. Not an immigrant; he's very obviously a born and bred American. Curious, I asked if he's mainstream or Nation of Islam. "Sunni. I'm not with The Nation." "What, don't look good in a bow tie?" That got a laugh. After the assessment, I got him in touch with a local mosque. I really hope he gets involved. A religious community with strict rules against alcohol and drugs is exactly where this recovering pill popping alcoholic needs to be right now.

No summer classes this break so I'm getting a third job for a couple months since there's student internships with our department at a corrugated packager and one of my classmates is the operations manager who set it up.

That brings me up to 80 a week, which should bring me about even with the temporary absence of the GI Bill BAH plus the Pell Grant installments. I don't know if I'm eligible for another year of the grant, and I still need to file to find out. Next semester's my last and I should still have a few months left of GI Bill left after graduating so I need to do research and make inquiries at Chandler-Gilbert for their Airframe and Powerplant program.

Permanent positions for my contract job have been posted this week. Applications are open until the 10th, and there are 5 hard badges available, I believe. I'll finish my application during breaks in my weekend job and one of the older experienced co-workers is going to look over it on Monday before I finalize it.

I need to get my hair cut it's been three months. I look in the mirror and I realized I can use a comb again, but I don't recognize myself anymore more when I'm looking like that. Also, I'm simultaneously balding and greying. I'll be 30 before school starts again.

Getting out of bed has started to hurt but the back pain from lying down is probably the only thing that keeps me from hitting snooze more often. I feel satisfied most days when I think about it.

Yeah, I'm pretty much fed up with my direct management these days and the executives are just clueless. My workday is mostly staying out of sight of my manager when they're around. When they're not I blow through my to-do list and halfass enough stuff that it looks like I've been busy, then it's TV or study time for several hours. If customers show up and they're cool, I'll bend over backwards to help them. Anyone who's a prick gets literally the barest amount of effort possible. 5 minute job? Well, contract says we've got 3 days and I can't be fucking bothered to do it right now, so piss off.

Micromanagement is getting absurd. Latest thing going on is crackdowns on restroom time & breaks running a little long. People are getting bitched at and threatening to have a break exchanged for bathroom time because they spend more than 10 minutes in the bathroom during an 8 hour shift. People getting written up for clocking in after 11 minutes on a 10 minute break. Writeups for literally being 30 seconds late to clock in.

Meanwhile, since management only shows up a bit before I'm out, I walk over to the bar a couple hours into my shift, have a few drinks, and take an hour long lunch off the record. Fuck it, anybody asks I was in the back and didn't hear anyone come in. I've taken shits long enough to get other people fired and counted it as time spent working on internal projects (Hey, it started internal to me, and man, believe me when I say that it was a project.)

If management is going to stop using judgement and trusting employees, I'm going to use their system against them. Treat people like adults and either trust them or fire them and hire someone you can trust. Don't pull this "minute over break" bullshit. Either they deliver or they don't, and if they take 10 minutes on break or 15 minutes it doesn't matter if the work is done at the end of the day.

Anyway, I feel like I'm the main character from Office Space. Again. It's gonna be gravy if I don't get canned before I get my personal shit in order.

> Micromanagement on the rise, not enough people to do the work, everyone's underpaid. Most of the place is on the verge of quitting.

Everyone want to be the chief not the indians


This is a story from one of my customer
> got a new job (finally)
> show up for work and they have nothing for him to do
> he even has a personal assistance and comes in everyday ask him what he wants for lunch
> after 2 weeks with nothing to do he is actually bored
> start wondering around the building checking out different rooms and stuff
> came across a lady with huge print out of spread sheets on banner paper
> ask her what she is doing
> turns out near the end of the money she has to spend about 2 to 3 days to manually look through the numbers and to make sure all the accounts balance out
> he ask where is the file
> it's on the network in Excel format
> wrote a little macro program to compare numbers in column X with column Y then bunch up the ones with difference and out put to a smaller sheet
> show it to the lady and her boss
> they were impressed
> 2 months later company went belly up

I somehow accidentally scored a part time job at a bicycle shop. Well, at least a trial period, but I know I can do it from both a sales and repair angle.

Also, the thread has stopped bumping. Shall we make a new one?
