Enough
Written by: darknatexs - 11:27 Sep-07-2019

So to become a mechanical engineer, you still have to learn to program. Why? Because what good are you if you can design something that can’t interface with the software you create for a programmer to expand upon. I learned c++, c#, and java. I became a developmental psychologist so I could understand the way the human mind works. Not just the anatomy of the brain. The way it works, and people work, so the software could be designed in a way that makes is more manageable and user-friendly. I started all of this because I went into the U.S. Air Force as an Aircraft Metals Technologist (2A7x1). I got that career because I have training as a machinist (mill, lathe, and g-code) and a welder (structural stick, MIG, flux core, TIG - aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, mild steel) and that is what makes up that job. I stood by and watched people tell me about "battle CPUs" made specifically for fighter jets while I started my career creating new blocks of F-16s and programming for them. I have used a gaming desktop to push myself to understand what I need to make a better product. I get new hardware to learn new ways to code. Here I get harassed for not buying the top of the line for that generation. I was the first person outside of Lockheed to work on an F-35 because of my abilities and capabilities. When I first came here, we were a community. We would spend weekends in chat talking and helping people. Now, it's telling everyone they are wrong. There is no help. The infection from other sites has spread here. I have left and come back multiple times. But I'm not doing it anymore. I can't stand by and have people tell me I'm wrong and tell me I said things I never did, just so they feel they are right about something. I'm not standing by watching the same people do it to others over and over. They don't talk to you like you know anything, they talk like they know everything and you know nothing. We used to correct people without a problem. Now it's snarky comments and putdowns. It's being mean and starting fights because they feel bested or they feel they are better than you. I don't know what it is, but it's not for me anymore. It can't be. Not anymore. I have invested time and money into this site. I believe in this site. I have met many people from this site. but at this juncture, it's time to call it quits. I'll keep my stuff here. Maybe one day I'll swing by. But it won't be for a long time. With that said, farewell and good luck.
