Haven't tried .cr but OPB.org was not working for me. I run a tunnel bear but I'm not sure if that would interfere with anything.

The bar immediately falls absolutely silent.

In a very deep, husky voice, a woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things:

1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat.
2. The bouncer is a blonde girl.
3. I’m a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate.
4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weight lifter.
5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler.

Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke?”

The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head and mutters, “No … not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

So since Dec 27th when our open enrolment closed, I've been trying to get a hold of our HR Benefits Coordinator to make sure they actually added my wife to my health insurance. No one at the front desk in HR could tell me, and told me to call homeslice directly. He was not returning my voicemails or emails, and I know he was receiving them. How do I know? Because I have admin rights to both our phone switch and email servers. So if he wouldn't voluntarily call me back, I figured I'd make him call me back. I think you know where this is going...
  • I locked his local system & network logins
  • I locked his email account
  • I locked his VPN account
  • I locked his smartphone
  • I blocked his ability to make outside calls from his desk
Then I told the guys at our helpdesk to forward him to me when he called in. Less than 8 minutes later, I got my answer

What's that adage about absolute power? Something about getting the job done?

I hope you delayed access for another hour, at least. Payback is a bitch...

Default Reed Switch Information

They're cheap, but nowhere around me keeps them in stock so I'd like to calculate what I need instead of using trial and error.
I can only supply qualitative info on the reed switches. See the animations. They will make it obvious that you want the field of the magnet in line with the switch axis. These are from Hamlin, a division of Littelfuse (note strange spelling).

1-pole (bad)

2-pole (good)


Next, the info at KJ will show you how to get a feel for magnet strength, and is a source. If you do find a magnet that works, but not at 1/2", then you can use the website to get a feel for what bigger magnet you may need.

Website

Picture: On the above website, click on the "see the magnetic field" icon for a feel for the flux density from different magnets.


I don't know if this will be of any big help, but, at the least, minimize iterations.

Regarding the Aluminum, it will not affect anything.

Nah, I'm not that bad. Someone might have had a legitimate benefits issue that needed to be sorted out and I didn't want to screw up anyone else's day.

So you abused your position and it did not change anything, right? You got an answer.. the result was already obtained, whether positive or negative.

Is the guy not in the same building? Could you have gone to see him in person?

Do you have a boss?

Nothing changed, that was never my goal. In fact, my goal was to get confirmation before my wife walked into the dentists office today to deal with a possible abscess/extraction situation. As of Jan 1 we are now a single income household. I prefer to not have crazy coverage snafus at the moment. I tried approved channels and got no responses, so I got creative.

No, he is in another state at the moment. He one of those "oh, I didn't get the message, must be something wrong with my (laptop/cellphone/voicemail/email)" guys.

Everyones management style is different. If my boss had told me not to do it, I obviously wouldn't have done it. I guess it probably helps that I answer to a VP.

Plus we are on the west coast, things are more laid back here. Relax bruh

Joe: WAT.
