Who did you purchase your angle eyes from? I had the same issue with mine when I first bought them (from DDM Tuning). Yet, the level of brightness evened out after a few hours of driving with them.

Then again, there could be a lack of electricity flowing through the 2 which are dim. Check your fuses and wires.

Or it's possible you could have installed them improperly

You never know...anything is possible.

If they're not plug and play you could have a harder route out...nothing you can't handle though.

Of course Sony, Apple, nor any other company will save the world with their products. But from what I've researched these companies base their success on overall values, quality, and customer satisfaction. Profit is just the outcome of these characteristics.

I would much rather see these guys succeed over MS any day.
I feel ya, Microsoft's history is well known. You aren't required to like them, but I mean at least make your arguments sound. Like I said, the fact that his hard disk failed brought on a huge anti MS rant, nothing related there.

Sony, Apple, Amazon, you name it, it bases its success on shady business practices and back room deals. There is no such thing as a nice, shiny, happy corporation. That is how the business world. MS is just a nice fat target because they are on top right now...

Such is the way of the world, when GM was the #1 car maker they caught a lot of (much deserved) crap for making basically shoddy cars. Now look at Toyota. You cannot expand and progress and be #1 in an industry like that without cutting corners and customer service. Macs are awesome, they make great niche (PC) and mainstream (iPod) devices, but they don't want #1 in the PC market, it is a tough place to be.

Maybe you guys should consider just having a monthly chat thread like the DMV people do?
I agree with the monthly chat threads. I think it's kinda intimidating for a new member to enter a 1000+ page thread, lol.

Yea even though we create the thread for montly meets it always turns into 12 pages of bullshit talking. I personally never go into those threads because it always goes off topic.

Im not intimidated

Whats up HR? I finally joined on here, trying to get some local action. I am on the Eastern Shore, used to have a black stock E36 328is-I was at the VAdriven meet last spring. That car is gone, now rocking a E30. Anyone know if anyone on here lives on the shore? I'm assuming its just me as the only other BMW I see on the regular is a 17 year old girl. Anyway, holla!

Morning all... and yea, I think the March thread had a bit of a jump on it...

Brad, weekend meet sounds good, May would be better for me anyway cause I would be out of school. When we getting together to talk about the things you needed swapped and the brakes and stuff?

Ohh, talked to Glenn the other day, hes doing good just staying hella busy. I should actually be meeting up with him friday to see about doing work for him, we'll see how it goes!

^ interesting, what are the requirements for the packaging, ie is it for shipping/freight services, or it appears the boat is currently on a trailer, do they want a better trailer or what?

There'a dedicated packaging program at VT? The specificity of engineering education will never cease to amaze me.

I'm right on board with you. I have always been fascinated about the concept of engineering and physics. I believe there are endless possibilities in these 2 fields.

As for the project, it looks very interesting. Good luck with that bimmerfan.

The company gave us a budget of $100 but would like all the material costs to be around the $50 mark since cheaper is better. Theres no limit or restriction on what we can or cannot use, but were leaning towards a combination of things plus they have to be stackable in a warehouse. We do not have to design a package for the trailer, that comes seperate, just the boat since they continue to get damaged, and it goes through freight services in UPS once its shipped from England.

thanks man

taken from the major description:

Quote:
Significant opportunities exist to improve the efficiency and safety of the global unit load logistics system for product storage and distribution by understanding how critical components in the system interact during use. Graduates of this option will be unique in the industry with an understanding of transport packaging and unit load systems-based design technologies, which include the interactions of packaging, pallets, and unit load material handling equipment.

Interdisciplinary education and research will include all components of the unit load logistics system, including packaging design, pallet design, unit load stabilization, dunnage, blocking, and bracing, unit load handling equipment design, and associated interactions, and includes courses in wood science and forest products, industrial and systems engineering, material science engineering, and graphic arts.

Packaging Engineer - plays a critical role in providing customer satisfaction. Her/His responsibility is to supervise the tasks involved in developing a package that protects the goods from production to consumption. Packaging engineers are needed not only by packaging material/container manufacturing companies but also by the consumer/industrial products companies as users of packaging.

Process Engineer - designs and manages packaging systems to ensure product integrity from warehouse handling to the shipping process.

Packaging Research Scientist - analyzes packaging, handling, storage, and shipment methods of goods to aid industry in meeting consumer needs. Utilizes simulation and computer technology to test all aspects of packaging.
