Thanks for the early posts ...

This is what I was looking for. A business resource for all SCMC members who would like to do business with other SCMC members.

This thread can be that resource as long as it stays on the forums.

I am a Mechanical Engineer and I work for MI Windows and Doors. We produce the window brands MI, Exact, BetterBilt, Capitol, and Insight. We are also an authorized manufacturer for some CertainTeed window lines.

I started as a window design engineer but I am currently the manager of the Production Engineers.

My company markets primarily to large builders and distributors, as well as Lowe's, so many of you have probably not heard of us even though we are one of the larger window manufacturer's in the country.

If any of you need window advice I can probably bore you to death with details!

There are no cameras allowed on set. They don't even want your cell phones out as many of those have cameras in them. We even have to sign confidencially agreements on most movies :( . I have been working on "All About Steve" starring Sandra Bullock and Thomas Hayden Church for 6 days now. Looks like tomorrow may be the last day. We had a ball crowd surfing Sandra Friday nite/morning, we have been working from around 4pm to 4am. Grueling hours but they feed us well and the weather has been very nice. I was one of the chosen few to actually handle Sandra. I found I was basically cut out of Chuck and Larry but maybe that scene will end up on the DVD. I could see my blonde head in the back of the crowd at the theater though :thumbsup: I was in the council room scene. I am now trying to get booked on an episode of Nip Tuck, they are doing a gay pride parade and need women with Harleys to play Dykes on Bikes, they said Rosie O'FatAss will be in this episode. :eek:

:thumbsup:

Being a doc is simple. You just go to med school for four years, do one year of Intership, two years of Residency, and then three years of Fellowship.

You only work 18 hours a day and come home with blood spewed all over you.

The technical part is the easiest part:
Cecal distension may impair the blood supply, leading to mucosal ischemia and ulceration. Infection may be involved, especially cytomegalovirus. Bacterial invasion leads to transmural penetration and, ultimately, perforation. Mucosal and submucosal necrosis can result in intramural hemorrhage. Neoplastic infiltration may be involved in some patients.
