Hello everyone, I have a quick question in regards to the ICND1 practice test that you get access to through netacad. I’m just interested to know how it stacks up against the real test?

I have seen people on here saying that you need to get 90’s on the boson test to get a comfortable pass on the real thing.

Is there any similar baseline for the netacad test?

Thanks in advance for the help.

The netacad tests are a lot easier than boson. I was practically acing the netacad test before my icnd1, but never got higher than maybe 85 on the boson test. Ended up passing with a 976 though.

That makes me feel pretty good. I got an 80 on my first run through of the netacad practice test and that’s mostly due to me not being done with the modules. There were quite a few questions about NAT/PAT, DHCP and network maintenance all of which are covered in the last three modules I haven’t completed yet.

Thanks for the insight!

I hate to say it but chances are you may have done some serious damage. something as simple as unplugging a ribbon cable can cause a static shock that may not even be noticeable to you, however it can be devastating to the hardware.

Not saying that is the case at all. However in the future it’s best practice to use a static wrist strap and a mat to make sure everything is grounded correctly.


Hello r/computertechs

I am a long time lurker but first time poster here. I had a quick question for all you computer repair techs out there.

I am running my own small computer repair business and I would love some insight on the different sources you guys use for parts.

Currently I am able to find some stuff hit and miss. I guess I'm just looking to see if there is some sort of parts supplier you can buy new model specific stuff from? Currently I have a client with an HP laptop its one of the x360 style that flips into a tablet. Anyhow I need to replace the frame and found a refurbished one on eBay and a new one on eBay but the new one from china takes 15 days! I have let the client know her options but surly there has to be a better supplier. Please help!

I have the same question so I will be following. I have a small computer repair business. I know that google flagged me for using the word “Mac” in PC & Mac repair. I assume google is just covering their butt, but I know for a fact I have seen competitors signs say Mac repair so either they aren’t playing by the rules or it’s allowed. Either way I am interested.

I've talked to the apple store in my area (Not apple themselves, an authorized retailer) and Apple is very very protective of their advertising and dishing out certified repair certificates. So I'm assuming Apple asked them to really target that key word.

Have you just tried the word apple? or apple machines? Because Mac is technically a name of a computer, so that could be TM protected more heavily.

Yes the specifically stated TM violation so I assume google just has a filter for Mac I will try Apple on a dummy ad just to see if they let it through.

Liability won’t be too expensive and almost everyone offers a policy. I would check with your personal lines insurer most of them are really trying to get into the small business market. The Tech E&O will be the more expensive one it’s because the way the policy works. Essentially the company insuring you at the time is responsible for insuring errors that could have happened in the past even when you weren’t their customer. That creates a lot more liability exposure. They will want to see contracts and get some background info on your business before they bind coverage.

Tell your homie he’s a bitch for hiding behind you like that! That was awesome though.

This will be looked back on the same way we look back on the bitcoin pizza. This guy might make a killing if he hodls all that XRP.

Where do you see XRP in the next 5 years? Do you believe it will be mainly used by financial institutions or do you believe it will become a common form of internet currency?

I don't see fiat currencies going away any time soon. But I do see XRP playing a role as the global settlement asset in the internet of value in the next five years.

Thank you for the response and everything you are doing to further the adoption of XRP!

Ahh the classic sport of dog sledding.

Even if I hit a truck then drove off lol

Well that’s up to you But yeah I mean they aren’t going to deny the claim on the basis of you not being a very good person. They may be interested if the other driver was injured and they will run your plate and stuff through a system to make sure there are no open claims that the other person may have filed. I mean do what you want just know that lying on an insurance claim or presenting false information is a lot more damaging than just telling the truth no matter how messed up it might be.

No it was a parked truck like a delivery truck no one in it no one around happened 3 months ago

Yeah just tell the truth nothing to be worried about

You were speeding through a small pueblo with real safety concerns. If you want to come visit our beautiful State and be a jerk and speed through it then just pay the ticket. Or don’t pay it but please don’t come back that will be the best $90 New Mexico ever spent.


Quit being a snowflake. If the officer was that rude that you feel you need to not pay a ticket, bring it up with his command not reddit.

You have to drop “give me the loot” next!

This guy should have cut rope years ago. He’s a horrible leader and should have been fired on multiple occasions. Let’s hope that we get a new chief with a backbone.

We were leaving Thor last night around 9:20 and he was walking around and security kept telling him to leave. He looked disturbed some how. We left before APD was called but it looks like they must have taken it pretty serious.

State Farm fucked me over a couple of years ago. The hose leading to my dishwasher burst and flooded my kitchen while we were out of town for the weekend. The whole kitchen floor had to be replaced, as well as part of the lower cabinets. While we're getting started remodeling the whole kitchen, the claims assessor comes in. He looks at it for 10 minutes, then denies the claim. He said that it was clear that the damage had been ongoing for some time, and they didn't cover that. I literally chased him off my property, then called my agent, who was oh so apologetic, and claimed he'd do what had to be done to fix this. Liar. I had to file a complaint 3 weeks later with the state insurance board, and they still didn't cover half the damage. I was out thousands of dollars thanks to those bastards.

Did you have the backup of sewer or drain endorsement on your policy? Please don’t hate the company for you and your agent not reviewing the proper coverages.

Sad that you're downvoted but it's the truth, most policies don't come with backup coverage standard. It's on the agent to make sure you're aware of it

Yeah I fond most of reddit doesn't listen to reason hence the salty post. I'm willing to assume most of the salt post are at least partially created by the person and not just the company. I'm not saying corporations don't wrong people but for the most part they have very clear lines in the sand and just because you don't like it doesn't mean it was wrong.

Don't let them distract you from the flying saucer on the top left corner! Wake up sheeple!! 🐏🐑🐏

Lol that’s crazy! I didn’t even notice that. That is kinda weird I wonder what it is.

Albuquerque, NM? I've always wanted to get back to see the balloon festival. We came through years ago and it's a beautiful town!!

Thanks for sharing!

You really do have to see it. The whole week it’s like this driving to work. It’s like living in a dream land for a week.

Sadie’s is always a good choice. If you are looking for something a little more authentic maybe barellas coffee house or Garcias not super fancy but have great food.

This is for whoever kept commenting that posting this story over and over again was only "rage inducing" and did nothing. Turns out, the Attorney General heard his people. (Not through a recall of 200+ votes as you suggested was the only logical solution, but through citizens disapproval.)

While those matters are pending, the New Mexico Constitution does not require that you be found guilty of any conduct related to them to be declared unfit to hold your office, and your oath to uphold the very same Constitution now demands your resignation,"

Be vocal about corruption on the local level! It gets shit done. Kudos to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas.

they still need to do the exact process the person explained to you. The only point he was trying to make was that you can be as loud as you want but with no action it means nothing. We don’t need more “we should do this post” we need more “I did this post”

I’m sure I’m going to get a ton of hate for this but I really agree with the other gentleman. He even was nice enough to site his work and provided some helpful info for your mission. I really don’t know why you are so salty that someone told you how it is.

"If you don't want to, then don't drag her through this and break up with her"

Okay, maybe let's take our finger off of the nuclear button for a moment. He's not addicted to drugs or cheating on her. It's just games. I'm sure OP and his lady are fine, and I'm pretty sure this was a light-hearted topic.

see more

Im sure it was lighthearted, and I'm sure they're fine, but still, any successful relationship requires 100% commitment from both parties. If not, it just becomes a give and take, and that can build resentment. We don't want OP's GF becoming resentful for how much he, and we (in regards to our relationships), play. He obviously posted this because his GF hinted at him spending too much time playing so maybe it's time to reevaluate and/or set expectations for play time etc and for when they should go do something together.

And maybe I only take the stance I have because my D1 play time put a strain on my relationship and we had to figure things out, and in the end, it worked out great because we talked about it and set expectations. :)

I'd hate for OP's situation to go from lighthearted to resentful.

Thanks for the thoughtful input. You are exactly right. I don't want to let it get out of hand, better to nip it in the butt now.
