2022.01.23 10:03 msgidol Tear in back of drywall sheet used for new construction. Common or a potential issue?
In process of building a new construction SFH. Currently pre-drywall stage. I took some photos of the sheetrock boards my builder was going to use. Saw that one had a slight tear in the back side.
Is this usual and acceptable? Does it harm the structural integrity of the drywall or is it pretty common these days? GC advised that this was on the back side and not the front.

2022.01.23 10:03 redditapi_botpract My journey through college and into the corporate world / advice to high-schoolers and people in college
Alright, so when I was younger, I wanted to be a graphic designer because I wanted to be an artist and liked computers and using them to manipulate JPEGs and all that stuff. I read up on being a graphic designer and found that it would be a lot of 'contract work' and you might not have a steady job, and you would be living paycheck to paycheck, with each paycheck not really being certain.
My dad ended up telling me about computer science and I read into it, was always naturally interested in computers, and decided that I wanted to become one of those hacker guys that do penetration tests (i was in 10th grade when I realized this). My dad's logic was that he was an engineer and he knew that some kind of 'tech engineering' was the next big job field, so he said that he would pay for college as long as I go for something based in engineering, (which he doesn't even remember doing but I remember it) but I don't even think he knew just how big it would become. He told me that graphic design was something you could pickup at a 2 year college, or some specialized art school.
I agreed with him and one of my fears of being a graphic designer was that I wouldn't have a steady paycheck from the get-go, and I was good at graphic design, but what I liked to do in my free-time with graphic design would not likely be what I do in a corporate setting.
I ended up applying to a 4 year university, and got in, got accepted. It was a good sturdy in-state school that had a good computer science program, 2nd in the state. Tuition averaged around 3.7k-4k per semester, not including books or food or boarding.
I ended up starting as a 'software and information systems' major, which essentially studies how to use computers and their operating systems to perform tasks using networks and was a computer science field of study that wasn't hardcore based on programming. I knew that I wanted to be like those 'hacker dudes that can get computers to do cool shit'. And in order to do that, you have to learn the inns and outs of computers and networks.
At the time, my college did not have a Cyber Security program(cyber security wasnt as big as it was then as it is now), or even a Penetration testing program. So I crafted my own list of classes that I knew would be useful for knowing the inns and outs of computers. This consisted of taking courses that dealt with Linux administration, networking, computer architecture, a few entry lvl programming courses, pretty much anything that allowed me to get hands on experience with computers and understand how they function.
I basically just talked to my advisor and found classes that fit the criteria of the major and aligned with my interests (aka not programming and algorithm classes). Ended up with a bunch of fun labs that dealth with programming rasberry pies, setting up DNS tables, basically a bunch of stuff old school linux wizards would deal with, and it was pretty fun.
Then in my junior year, my major got swapped to a generic computer science major because nobody knew what a 'software and information systems' major was, so I just ended up graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science with a sub-class "Software & Information Systems.
So I took those courses and I also ended up doing a minor, which was technical writing, which ends up pairing VERY well with technology in my opinion. Technical writing teaches you how to write formal documents, write processes and procedures, and write in a way so that you can explain complex topics to people that might not fully understand. And during my technical writing minor, I was forced to get an internship. So I ended up getting a 'paid internship' with a company nearby that was looking for a Jr. Cyber Security Student Employee.
Ended up being the perfect fit. I grew up doing tutorials on youtube, so writing tutorials for people to follow was a natural extension of something that I enjoyed. And I basically get paid to be a cyber security writer, and also get hands on experience programming/automating tasks.
My job duties basically consist of writing scripts that automate uploading of application code to scanning platforms(after 4 years of experience finally doing some sysadmin stuff), while working from home (thanks covid?), and writing documents that explain the whole process. I've been able to do 1 year long contracts with different contracting agencies that work for 'tech placements' and have done work pertaining to being an excel spreadsheet monkey(worked for a bank) to configuring firewalls and writing playbooks(for medical hospitals) to monitoring SIEM consoles...
Nowadays they have a cyber security program that you can do to get in this field, and your journey will be different from mine. And you do not even need to do cyber security, you can do a lot of stuff in TECH / IT. There's so many jobs that it's kind of crazy, and a lot of them let you work remotely these days. If one company doesn't, just find another one that does. Starting out it's a good idea to use a recruiter, but be careful because they can and will skim a lot off the top if you let them, but they can help you get your first few jobs in the field and there's agencies that actually specialize in recruiting new people fresh out of college.
So honestly, right now my job feels like a job, but I enjoy my job so it feels like a natural extension of what I would be doing anyways. I also get to work remote and my manager is pretty chill and doesn't micro-manage as long as we produce results. I figure, well shit I'd probably be doing something similar, just maybe not as cool and not with super expensive toys that companies pay for that you can't afford ;)
That's just my little spiel, typed this because I couldn't sleep. but wanted to give someone that might not know where to go with this field or just in general. I'm 28 years old, got my first job with full benefits 2 years ago, and just got promoted at work with a nice raise. I know a lot of people in this subreddit like to shit on jobs, but some of them are actually good if you get the right combination of motivation and experience.
I've been on interview after interview before, think of each interview as an opportunity to practice your acting skit. I think the most interview's I've been on without hearing back was 7, just keep trying and someone will eventually find you :)
TL;DR: Join cyber security / tech and you will make good money and live happy

2022.01.23 10:03 A99SenBuyuksun Another day another problem with my S10
This time when I try to watch a video on Facebook, a 15-20 sec ad pops up as always with the skip button being a 5 sec timedown. The problem is now that, that 5 sec timedown button does not go down. It constantly stays on 5. The ad doesn't even play. I have to click on the ad for it to play but this time the 5 sec timedown gets removed. So the only thing I can do is to sit and watch the 15-20 sec ad if I want to see the video. I tried to delete cache and reinstall the app but it doesn't work. Any tips how to fix this?
The same thing is happening to my brother's S10. Gosh I am so tired of all these app problems. I made the choice and I'm 100% sure I will be changing to iPhone 14 Pro in september because I cant take android anymore with all it's problems. My plan is to keep using my S10 until the iPhone 14 comes out but god android is making me want to buy an iPhone 13 Pro, use it until september, sell it and buy the 14.
How can an (almost) 3 year old Galaxy S10 model keep having problems I simply don't understand. An S10 should have absolutely no problems using apps like FB, Twitter, snapchat and so on.
I tried to use my brother's iPhone 7 for a hour to test it out and I'm amazed how a 6 year old iPhone has no problems with the apps compared to my almost 3 year old S10. I understand the apps has to be optimized for every android models but we are talking about the top line smartphone from Samsung in 2019.
