Did you take matrix algebra aka linear algebra?

2018-02-06 03:34:38 UTC  

The simpler versions need you to understand basic matrix algebra concepts

2018-02-12 01:51:13 UTC  

Wrong place. :P

2018-02-12 02:44:55 UTC  

It's appropriate, it's science

2018-02-12 02:51:50 UTC  

not for macgoyver though.

2018-02-12 03:16:59 UTC  

Odd fellow (as to be expected), but it was a decent watch.

2018-02-12 05:25:52 UTC  

I wasn't saying this above thing was wrong. I made a post here that was supposed to be in another section and I deleted it.

2018-02-12 05:32:06 UTC  

ohh lol

2018-03-05 22:42:12 UTC  

@Sam Southern - TN I know some matlab

2018-03-07 06:03:28 UTC  

Anyone in the petroleum industry?

2018-03-07 17:48:58 UTC  

@here ^^^

2018-03-07 17:49:35 UTC  

Im familiar with network engineering in the petrol industry, but I've never worked directly for a petrol company. Lots of BGP.

@Freiheit - CA I got my degree in petroleum engineering, though I work in aviation engineering at the moment. What you need? Thanks for tag @Havamal

2018-03-07 18:52:36 UTC  

@Brandon Ironside- ND Looking to start a new career. I want to make my fortune. I think opening Anwar, Gull Island &c. will make for a boom in oil when they run a pipe across the continent.

2018-03-07 18:58:12 UTC  

@Freiheit - CA Your going to be competing against some of the biggest corporations in the world, do you plan on wildcating? I think that's going to be your only in, get in early like some of the smaller companies did in the bakkan. it doesn't help that there is record production of oil at the moment.

2018-03-07 18:59:31 UTC  

I must clarify. I'm looking for an entry option. Where would someone with no experience begin to end at high pay?

2018-03-07 20:09:18 UTC  

It's possible to walk onto a rig as a roughneck and elevate yourself to company man position if you are very competant, adverse to high stress, can pick up technical drilling intuition, and are ok with very little social life that comes with living in remote areas and a disproportionately male population. If you can handle all that there is good money to be made.

2018-03-07 20:27:23 UTC  

@Brandon Ironside- ND Have you worked in the oil industry? I was under the impression the boom was dead

2018-03-07 20:32:29 UTC  

@John O - only as an intern for a brief period. The boom is dead for now with the current oil prices. I choose to take my career into a different engineering direction after what little exposure I did have right out of college.

2018-03-07 20:33:14 UTC  

there still is work though, just not boom levels

2018-03-07 20:33:47 UTC  

Is it $120k a year like it was a decade ago?

2018-03-07 20:34:34 UTC  

I'm not considering it, just wondering. I know a lot of guys who made ridiculous money back then

2018-03-07 20:41:59 UTC  

newer engineers aren't making that anymore, senior engineers can make 200-300k still.

2018-03-07 20:43:35 UTC  

my friends who did get oil engineering jobs are making 55 - 75k similar to other engineering fields just out of college

2018-03-07 20:47:36 UTC  

I'm talking roughnecks

2018-03-07 21:01:06 UTC  


2018-03-07 21:32:38 UTC  

Oh, yea close to above number now

2018-03-07 22:33:47 UTC  

That sucks.

2018-03-14 04:31:16 UTC  

Happy Pi Day!

2018-07-09 04:58:36 UTC  

Any of you goys into data mining? I've been fiddling around with R a lot recently.

2018-07-09 12:20:09 UTC  
2018-07-09 18:20:48 UTC  

@ThisIsChris Yeah I structure a lot of unstructured data on the web for economic system research mostly.

2018-07-09 18:21:37 UTC  

Been getting into data science comprehensively lately, I feel like the field is about to blow up.

2018-07-10 12:13:39 UTC  

@Attrition in the desert definitely! What data is it that you are making available and to who?

2018-07-10 16:27:33 UTC  

@ThisIsChris Mostly data on commerce exchanges in SE asia. The place I'm working at now handles a lot of soft/hard currency transactions.

2018-09-18 01:54:12 UTC  

That's neat. I wonder if it's simultaneously done in all areas of the animal.

2018-09-23 19:03:48 UTC  

Hey guys, I'm Nick, and I'm a ChemE undergraduate from NY, excited to talk with all of you
