    Outstanding Fender.
    BBeerme is right about finding this site so early in your career. School gives you a good foundation to build on and coming to this site along with job experience in my opinion is akin to going to grad school.

    When I started doing mechanic work they hadn't even started publishing The Forum from the men's magazine.

    I ran into a guy just yesterday from Lennox national accounts and I asked him if he went on HVAC talk.

    He said he'd heard of it.... but he'd never been there before.

    I find that completely amazing.

    I thought you were a Christian...why you are subscribed to gay men's publications?
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Well my week got even better yesterday. I interviewed with a commercial refrigeration company and was offered a job, which I accepted. I have a couple more weeks of school left and another interview on the 25th with a large mechanical HVAC company.

    The reason I want to keep the second interview is just to see what they are offering. I am fairly certain they will not beat what I got offered. Not to mention, the owner has been to the school and talked to us a few times but I get a strange vibe from him. He comes on really strong, too strong really. I have also seen a few reviews online from current and former employees that aren't that great. Of course you always have to take those with a grain of salt as it were.
