Instructables Internship - Day 2 Answered

Day two!

Today, I would get to meet everyone who didn't show up yesterday. (It was, after all, Presedent's Day)

When I got in, I hopped on the computer and started poking at my copy of the database. I know this isn't exicting for most people, but as someone who's worked through and designed a few DB's that never were populated, it was a chance to not only learn style, but play around with a ton of data. You guys are really busy!

As I was working hard on my queries, I would continue work on the TV-B-Gone, and talked to Randy some more. Its so awesome meeting and talking to people in real life, and hearing and seeing their projects that are works and progress, some which may never make it to instructables.

I couldn't stop laughing at Christy's attire, which has to do with a little project of hers and Eric's, and Mitch's that is going on this week, but you're going to have to wait until they make an instructable!

Later in the day, I kept at all my projects, joked around (just a little! I swear!), and eventually finished the TV-B-Gone kit! Later. I was able to test it and it actually worked! I also got to use the laser cutter. I want to try cutting a perforated pattern, like a checkerboard, only *really* small.

All and all, today was an awesome day, and I can't wait to get back tomorrow!

wow! so excited, I'm making sooo many typos!

Heck, he broke the "be nice" policy. You can ban him from Instructables forever now, can't you? Hmm... since you got your hands in the guts of the database, you could even erase all traces of him - it'll be as if he never existed! MWUAHAHAH! Ah, the power of a lowly intern - what a head rush! :-D

It's Massachusetts' school vacation week this week, so no excuse needed, but it would be tough to get the parents' consent.

We get everything off :P
We got a week off for presidents day, but its really just a spring break, even though we get another week off in April for Patriot's Day, celebrating some Rev. War thing...
