Seems simple but I always forget to do this.

YSK If you want or need to replicate a picture, draw a grid.

YSK If you want or need to replicate a picture, draw a grid.

By drawing a grid on each (picture and sketch), you can get the rough shape/proportions you are looking for.

From there, erase the grid on your sketch and finish as you need to.

You can also scale the grids, from a small picture to a large drawing and vice versa. This is done by drawing a smaller grid (or larger) on the picture than your sketch.

The scaling is useful when you want to create a large drawing. You ever notice the posts of people that painted awesome pictures on their walls? Often, they use projectors, but this method works great for that and is significantly cheaper.

Example of a quick sketch I made at Lunch

Sometimes, you’re troubleshooting an issue, but when you ask for help, the problem suddenly goes away. What is that called?

Sometimes, you’re troubleshooting an issue, but when you ask for help, the problem suddenly goes away. What is that called?

There must be a term or phrase for this:

You spend ages on debugging or figuring out why a certain feature or code or something isn't working.

You call someone over to show them.

Inexplicably, it starts working.

What's that called?

LPT: Job offer rescinded after salary negotiation attempt. Advice for next time!

LPT: Job offer rescinded after salary negotiation attempt. Advice for next time!

TL;DR: Offered a job, tried to negotiate $ 2 more/hour, didn't talk to HR Assistant she rescinds offer.

Hi reddit! Last week I was offered a communications job at a small college in a big city. The HR Assistant, who I've never met, emailed me the employment offer, however, the salary range was far lower than expected. I knew the range beforehand but during my initial interview the supervising manager told me it was negotiable. I was given a tight deadline to respond (less than one day). I called the supervising manager the next day and requested a higher salary, given my extensive experience and the requirements of the position. She said she would forward my request to the Director, and she even called me later that day to say she "made a good case" to HR and that we'd see what came back. Fast forward one week later (yesterday) and I receive a bitchy email from the HR Assistant saying that they were unable to move forward with the employment offer because I did not respond to her directly, but contacted the supervising manager instead. This was totally unexpected and unprofessional in my view and I responded explaining why I contacted the supervising manger, and alluded to her (the HR Assistant) unprofessional attitude.

My question: did I do something wrong here? Or is the HR Assistant on a crazy ego-trip. Keep in mind my ask was not extreme, it was literally for $ 2 more an hour.

YSK how to fit more bookmarks in your bookmark bar in Chrome and other browsers.

YSK how to fit more bookmarks in your bookmark bar in Chrome and other browsers.

You can leave only favicons, deleting the names of the bookmarks. It'll look like this. I find it much more intuitive.

You can do it by right clicking the bookmark and selecting "Edit".

The only drawback is that they are small.

Probability of same birthday 8 years apart?

Probability of same birthday 8 years apart?

Ok back story: My brother was born May 7th 1981 and I was born May 7th 1989. We are the only 2 – our parents only had us. We have no other siblings. I would like to know the odds of this happening I've always wondered it but I never figured to ask the fellow redditors (duh) Recap: 1. only children birthed My brother and I! 2. Born same day same month 8 years apart! 3. Would that somehow make us twinzies?

Thank you very much in advanced!!

LPT Request: How to stay awake in long meetings/conference talks.

I have always had the worst time staying awake in boring meetings and long-winded discussions. Seriously, I just start falling asleep in my chair. It's always been like this for me, regardless of the amount of sleep I get at night. Coffee only kinda helps. Even if I'm actually interested in the content I still end up nodding off. Someone help plz. Save me!
