  1. yeah, stupid posts...looks like they belong in the burbs, not the inner city...i am close by and was going to give them a shot but those posts are off putting and i lean to the right
  2. if anyone needs a PE, let me know, i can maybe help out
  3. The good news is that TxDOT is well aware of this and discussed the potential changes due to COVID during their Transportation Short Course (convention) last week. TxDOT is a collection of engineers/constructors who are conservative by nature (most of us are, unlike our Architect friends)...sure they may have some outdated views on transportation but they are evolving for the better and more quickly than the state legislature...the Short Course presentations had almost no politics, it was refreshing in the current environment
  4. damn, that location always looked like a good ambush spot...might need to ride strapped now
  5. idk but i always did like the shaded canopy portion of that building facing Cullen
  6. those sheetpiles are definitely deep...should hold up, but mother nature is a mother&#@&
  7. lol, structural PE here, i haven't done a parking garage design but i did have to analyze one for a construction addition we did to one of the interior floors...garage live loads vs office live loads is very non-intuitive until you run the math...typical garage live load is 40-50 psf with a point load of ~4 kips or so....for office live loads, its ~75-100 psf....if its a pool, i suspect the loads are way higher....anyways, we had to make our addition as light as possible
  8. nobody has a problem with building an IT/data center, which by the way, was just recently proposed....everybody HAS a problem with the way UT handled the land purchase...arrogance, must be nice having PUF moneyz
  9. I actually don't have a problem with UT building a campus in Houston, its a good thing for the city and competition for UH. I do have a problem with the current system of higher education funding in the state of Texas; so backwards.
  10. You're a smart person, I don't need to explain to you whether the PUF is fair or not, you already know the answer. You're right, I am happy with my decision, it was pretty easy. UH offered me a full engineering scholarship without PUF money whereas UT and A&M didn't. That's pretty impressive. Imagine what they could do for other minority/low income students in the greater Houston area with increased state funds. One more point. This is the perfect opportunity for UH and its alumni to start "flexing" its growing political muscle. Long gone are the days of UH being a pushover/beta/not do
  11. i think most alumni are upset at the current funding of higher education in Texas...it seems pretty unfair
