Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email
?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

They want to see that they can trust you, and if you become an annoying little shit under pressure.

Worst thing you can do when dealing with professionals is to act like you know as much or more than they do.

Because if you come in with that attitude they will wait for you to fuck up and give you so much shit for it. Your best bet is to go in acting like you know next to nothing because then they won't expect much out of you and if you do fuck up their attitude will be more of like, "Well yeah you aren't as skilled as us so that's expected."

Even if you do think you know as much or more than they do, fake humility will make you seem more likeable as a person, which means people will be more tolerant of your mistakes.

Little life hack there for you.

Thats pretty much what i did, and what my plan was. But it was still scary as this is the first time ive done this

For those that are wondering the install wend well. Ive been using the car over the weekend, and there have been no leaks. Not bad for someone whose own education is a wrench and youtube.

The boss and senior mechanics were super helpfull, and got a giggle out of it. So it was not as bad as it could have been.

Sounds about how my car repair went. I watched a video of how to replace ignition coils as the place wanted 80 a piece to do and a 4 pack was 80 total. After one failure of me not pushing everything in all the way, I went back and pushed everything a bit harder and we were good. My car has been happy about it since.
I did the same thing on how to replace my laptop screen.
