One of my biggest fears of ever being self employed.

Steven and others. This is just info for your benifit.


I'm an Engineering technician. Its my job to know or learn stuff. All technicans are anoying, some a jer|< off$. I might be anyone of those two. :P

I'm a health care worker. All health car workers are a little "touched". Even LazyJW.

I do laboring with a job agency, so I deal with logistics, demolition, truck driving, forklifting, foundation work, factory work, shipping, importation etc. The whole nine yards. Often, I don't get the work I need, then I go doing extra wood chopping or health care work.Or enginering work when I get it.Or car maintenance.

That has risks, but I'm fortunate, although I have had one accident that shouldn't of happend. Its an accident. It happens when you chop wood. About 1000 BCE, theres a report some kind of Yiddish guy wrote that he who splits logs may be endangered by them. Well, yeah, but I've broken through walls without getting snakbiten, and as mine worker, quarried rocks and bult roads witout getting hurt.

Life is what it is, you get stuck in and get on with it.…but sucess in life and chance is a fine thing.

Situation is that I've foolishly believed that an Engineering contract to measure road roughness from any one of 60 odd local authroties would be let out to me. Its a contractural requirement, but it just hasn't happened.


So I'm maxed out finacially, on intrest only payments on my house, and doing 70 hours a week, and not making the grade like I used to. I'm on my 36th job application, and have been type cast hired labor for six years.


Now the IRS needs its dues, and my eneamic, injured rotator cuff wife is working her tush off, and I have no professional work or hope of chipping in. Last time I gave things a bit of a hard shove, I dang near cut my thumb off in a wood spitter, and I have to consider safe, within my means ways of getting my a$$ out of the do-do.

All of it self induced. No harp strings required, its just life, and I make the bed I lie in. But it sux's, and my planned four speed over drive, emission compliant 3.3 and 4.1 log head engines just have to take a back seat again.

Cool23.

Cool23 wrote::roll: :? Why post you are going ? This post is simply odd. Is he going to read any of this ? No idea.


Its certainly not odd.

I had to say "thanks and so long for all the fish". The advice you've given has been valuable, and when I was camping out in Christchurch, I had no problems with power, electrical devices or my computer. And my trailer and towing has been good. but smashing my car up at 50 mph when driving over a bridge bump is pretty hard to fathom from a guy who has done 400000 miles accident free as a highway inspector since 1992.


Last time from January 2009, the wheel feel off my six cylinder Cortina when I was towing it with my son aboard, narrowly missed a young mother pushing a kid in a pram. That was a simple engineering stuff up with wheel hub bolts, and I got pretty upset with progress with my life agenda. For me, the wheels were falling off then, but I'm still here.

I was gone two years without a warning back then (I told Jack and Mike, then bailed). viewtopic.php?f=5&t=64609&p=494623#p494623


Its likely it might happen again.

Simon, related to your other forum stuff, I got offered some work putting up 36 by 36 foot and bigger sheds, I've done construction for 25 years, its pretty easy to make extra doing that, but instead, I've decided to gather more info, and push my 3.3 and 4.1 engine business a little more.


So I come back here to help offer advice, but my kitchen is by no means clean. Never has been. Its dirtier now....

Well, good news.I've gotten some Professional Services type Roading Engineering work back like I had before 2014.

No one knows the exact future, but I'm likely gonna be bussier than a brick layer in Baghdad. So like I've done before, its a few years of cold turkey for me, a sort of Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

You can PM me, or contact me by phone at XEC Ltd, the address is in the link below.


I do have facebook, but I am a roading inspector, and I do fatality surveys and can't link my self to social media extensively when things get bad like they have with the New Zealand Earth quakes,

See http://vb.foureyedpride.com/showthread. ... -the-night

I have to be secluded due to legal issues in the advent of accidents on roading networks.

Thanks for all the help. This is definately my last post for a considerable period of time, probably 2 years oughta do it.


I'll check and read everything, but cannot respond in the normal epic posts. :rolflmao:


Hopefully I will have completed my 2012 goals by then. The last 4 years have been exceptionally nasty for me, my family, and althoughI've rebounded, its time to rebuild the walls and protect my family by being a person of my word.


I'm busy with electronic data logging, and staple diet is the same stuff I've been doing since I was 18...site investigations, surveys. And the calibration rut, just like all carer Material Testing technicans fall into. Its not a bad Foxhole to be in. :thumbup:


Once I've got those nailed, I'm back to making a special independent runner I6. So long as things prosper for me, I'm going to build it from scratch.

Ford have ditched in line sixes, so the only sticks to sharpen for me are (Since I'm stupid eough to redo the math),


1. low speed multiplecarb independent runner carb stuff is where I go next, but the evidence on that was thrashed out long ago, and although the data showed a gain, its as expensive as heck, and a dead end unless its independent runner by EFI. One EFI throttle body beats three for service and safety.

And

2. turbo in line sixes. And electronic fuel curve control.


I did all the conceptuals for that back in 2012. Time to rehash the non V8 stuff....



Ford have never really been into in line sixes like other car makers have, and I'm sure the corporate edicts are sound and will esure survival going forward. I've got another trail to blaze....


Here's my signature from Four Eyed Pride, since I've tasted the best I6 appletiser in my last 81 i6 Mustang.


Its who I am, what values I espouse, and what I really really like. And another forum Ive taken sabbatical of.

Nothing like a good earthquake to make work for road engineers. Lotta stress fissures to measure and mitigate.

We had a crane operator back in the midwest who flew in the trusses for the three-story apartments I was helping to frame. There was a massive two-train collision/derailment north of town and it required multiple cranes many days, a week or more, to clear. I asked him if he had gotten in on it. His eyes kind of lit up and he said, "You know how you're feeling poorly and you go to the doctor for a shot of penicillin. And then you perk right up and feel better? Well, that's a train wreck for a crane operator."

Good luck. All the best and congratulations on the new job in your field.

Good to see you back and by the sounds of it back on your feet. Do try not to burn the candle at both ends as you know you will get burnt in a bad way. You do have to hate it when the light at the end of the tunnel gets dim but often a charge of the batteries (time away from places like the forum) you see the light brighter and things come good. Again good to see you back. :thumbup: :D
