w00t...had an interview today with a dude who represents about 200 newspapers (he's doing interviews with a couple hundred students for 30-40 summer internship positions) and we're not supposed to know if we got shortlisted...but he told me at the end that I'm shortlisted and it's pretty much a matter of WHICH newspaper will take me on....should be a pretty pimp summer gig.

All you Rutland trash talkers can go fuck yourselves

I would say that Rutland's a good place to live. It may not have the most glamorous neighbourhoods in kelowna, but il always call it home for as long as i live here.

ahhh gotcha...now don't you have to cure it at about 150 degrees celsius (which shouldn't be hard; an oven will do) but at about 90psi? How are you going to do that? (just curious...I think it's awesome that you're doing this yourself)

that's where I saw it at hahaha but most of the pieces they're dealing with are NOT flat...

EDIT: the part that may interest you is right around 2:00 minutes....they're saying 3hrs @ 90psi and 125*C....

I Agree, I like Rutland alot and plan on buying another place in Rutland actually. I could care less about living in a glamorous neighbourhood, just means you and everybody around you is further in debt

Yeah...definitely will be getting those now. Thing is that this neighbourhood is so safe that when I moved in my landlords had ONE key between the 3 of them...they simply never locked the doors. Sometimes when I work on my truck (which is parked on the street) I forget my cellphone on the hood, go out a couple hrs later, and it's still there....*sigh*

The landlords' insurance doesn't cover tenants...so I'm SOL on my camera, but the school doesn't seem to be freaking out about the D70s, so I think that was insured. Crappy start to my reading break haha
