    Yesterday we had a technician show up without the appropriate cable to complete a quick relay reprogramming.
    Luckily there was a spare in the trash can.

    Structural engineer. This project is one story of concrete and 2 more story's of wood on top of that about 92,000 sqft. There are two 4ft diameter pipes running underground at a diagonal through the site. Huge pain in the ass project.

    Yesterday my staff assistant insisted that she was the person who should be on the phone with IT and she would program my new desk phone.

    This consisted of navigating through the phone's menus and setting up static IPs and network info.

    My fucking face when that is literally my job and she thinks she is better qualified to do it.

    Then she started touching shit in my cube in between phone reboots.

    Electrical engineer checking in.

    Recently switched from industrial consulting to commercial MEP work. The work is much less challenging, but also much faster paced so I don't tmb as much anymore :/

    Working towards project management and less design work.

    That looks like our engineering department on casual Friday. There's only one white person and he's an old dude that has a pocket protector and wears diebetic shoes.

    We develop it in house. Well we develop a few in house, but the one I use primarily is a structural solver probably most similar to LS Dyna in terms of commercial software except much more scalable. Our problems range in the 10-30 million element range whereas Dyna couldn't handle that. Our other software is a CFD solver that I know nothing about.

    I think the actual engineering division shipped the weird ones to our office. Their main office is in Tulsa and they have another one down the road from us. Pretty sure they house the oddballs here. They're like an office wide joke when it comes to food. If a vendor brings food for us and one of them sees it they alert the others (telepathically I assume) and the others come and attack it like hyenas. We had an Oil & Gas division pot luck for thanksgiving. They aren't in our division but I guess sniffed it out and ravaged it. They were double plating. Almost all of them. Everyone brought enough food for oil & gas employees buy they raped it so bad that they ran out of food before a vast majority of the employees who brought food didn't get any of it. I need to just make a shitty work story thread because I'm surrounded by so many weirdos.

    I work mostly with Discrete Event Simulation. I haven't used any of the software you mentioned. The applications though sound very interesting from what I just looked up.
