Good luck mate. Think of me when you hit the big time.
We'll see if I end up in his lab, though. I can declare, but he also has to wait until younger labs take their picks. As I've heard, younger labs get first round picks, like the NFL :lol:. After, the older labs get the leftovers. On top of that, he also ranks the students he's interested in taking.

---------------------------------------------------This is a rant if you don't want to read me just talk shit.

Luckily, holy shit, I dodged a motherfucking bullet not rotating through this one lady's lab. She was dying to have me rotate through "just to get a feel what it's like to have such an accomplished student" she said. It was totally ulterior as she was the youngest lab, and I would've been stuck with her if I did. I'm definitely the number 1 pick as I'm the only one entering with a significant fellowship, meaning I get paid a premium.

I rotated through 1 lab that is in another department, so I don't think they'll have much say. They're not all that new, though, either. It only has one student, though, and if balding guy or Asian girl doesn't declare it, they'll only have one student. It's the cancer lab I talked about, btw. They do good work, but the PI is a bit too strict and talks to you like you're an idiot.

I rotated through that disease vectors lab, which he's pretty new. He's only taking 1-2 students (only 2 students rotated through too :lol:), though, and I don't think he'll force it if I don't choose him. He told me as much, but he really enjoyed having me in his lab. I don't like studying his model, though. He has a good research area that is wide open for someone interested in computation, though. He's wanting to use machine learning to predict things that these disease vectors use to spread disease.

I'm going to go ahead and rant a little, but from what I've seen of the entering students that rotated through the lab I'm at:

  1. Me (going to declare that lab I'm at)
  2. Burnett kid (will declare the same lab from what he's telling me, but he also rotated through 2 new labs--I think he might be screwed)
  3. Tall balding kid (will declare a different lab for sure--told me either cancer lab or a medical surgery/isolation lab)
  4. Burnett girl (will likely declare the disease vectors lab from what she tells me)
  5. Glasses girl (will declare a medical toxicology lab--had no interest in the lab I'm at from what his students told me)
  6. Asian girl (no idea, not spoken to her since she's doing the cancer lab which is very far away)
  7. Jew-fro guy (no idea, but I feel like he won't join the lab I'm at since he wants to research something different from what they're doing atm)
He has about 7 students that rotated through, but 3 of them are interested in other labs. Leaves about 5, and I think he's only taking 2 or 3. The thing is that Asian girl, Burnett girl, and Burnette kid all rotated through new labs...

Anyways, I found out that just declaring doesn't mean shit. I just hope the disease vectors or the cancer lab doesn't play their youth card. So far, I'm the only student that is interested in computational work, and he's driving his lab forward with it and has a huge need for a student for this.

@Mattress I'm so damn nervous. Just need to vent even if you don't feel like reading so feel free to ignore. That's what you get for being so nice and posting this stuff, which I'm likely going to use :lol:.

So, he just sent me a list of his projects. Seems I can use computational work to do something pretty awesome. It'll be a cross project between him and the head of a _ department (not going into specifically what area).
Anyways, he reiterated that he has no say in who ends up in his lab :conf. Not sure why he would send me this top-secret stuff if he's sure I might not end up in his lab. Like, for my rotation presentation, he had to tell the audience that everything said was all in legal something and no one can disclose what I presented on.

Uh, it's going to be a very tough project, though. I think this one will beat out his past student's because we're going to verify the work with wet lab techniques. He needs someone like me that is proficient in both areas. I've heard there are actually 3 students interested in his lab: Jew-fro, Burnett, and Me. Jew-fro was so damn adamant that he was looking for a different project too, and the dude is kind of lazy. Burnett kid was pretty straightforward from the start, though. He said he is happy picking 3 students, but he's not sure how the department will react.

I declared the cancer lab my second pick. If I don't end up in his lab, I'll need to put my head down and just do the work in the cancer lab. That one is going to be a bitch to get through, but Amir Khan is super nice. It's a slim chance that I end up in the disease vector lab. Like, if the PI's switched labs, I'd be in the cancer lab in an instant.

Asian girl will go with the lady that tried to get me to rotate through her lab. It's a cell culture lab, and she's supposedly really good at it. They say she came from a top university in California. Tall balding kid, really cool guy btw, just got recruited to an outside medical facility like 3 cities over. He's leaving after a year to go down and do some surgical techniques. It's a pretty crazy lab because they develop isolation techniques for tissues from patients.

Mate, sounds like you’ll be fine. You’re speaking Portuguese while I’m fluent in Hungarian, but I get the gist.

By the way, if there’s anything specific that you need, just let me know. I can get just about anything but you’ll have to give me some direction. That includes books as well as tutorials or courses.

Oh, and glad to hear that you’ll actually use this stuff. There are a few of us here (moi et @Ronsonfly ) who’ll probably never finish a single module, never mind course.

Just glad that I can help in some small way.

[Switch] Robonauts Free (Was $5.99) + 9 Other Free Qubic Games Coming from December 17th 2019 @ Nintendo eShop

8597


Greetings everyone, Nintendo/Qubic are running a promotion whereby you can redeem Robonauts for free with the purchase of any Qubic game.

They currently offer a Coloring Book for free which can be used as this purchase which is awesome. So to get the free game, following the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Coloring Book(ec.nintendo.com) page and install the free download.
  2. Go to the Robonauts(dekudeals.com) page and press "Proceed to Purchase".
  3. In the checkout, the price should drop to $0.00 and you can install the full version for free.
Qubic is also offering this for 10 titles in 10 days(qubicgames.com) starting December 17th.

The dates below are in a US timezone I believe:

December 16: Geki Yaba Runner Anniversary Edition(ec.nintendo.com)
December 17: Puzzle Book(ec.nintendo.com)
December 18: One Strike(ec.nintendo.com)
December 19: Wreckin Ball Adventure(ec.nintendo.com)
December 20: Koloro(ec.nintendo.com)
December 21: #RaceDieRun(ec.nintendo.com)
December 22: Rekt(ec.nintendo.com)
December 23: Mana Spark(ec.nintendo.com)
December 24: Mystery Game TBA.[/QUOTE]

Just think of it as a chain reaction. You need to keep up and download each game for free on the day it’s available in order to make sure the next day’s game turns into a free download for you.


For example: If you want to get game (4) One Strike as a free download on December 18th, your Nintendo account library will need to have games (1) Robonauts, (2) Geki Yaba Runner and (3) Puzzle Book added to it. If you are missing ANY of those 3 previous games in your library on you won’t see One Strike as a free download on December 18th.
