CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"Well, there isn't anything you can do about it unless you are registered & run a business, other than refusing to accept employment for less than you think you are worth. If we don't get paid enough, you can't tell it by the fees…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"I am not going to pretend there are no problems. There are always problems. Success depends on what you set as a goal. If I wanted to be an engineer, I would be an engineer, I have an engineering degree. I like being a surveyor better. No doubt the…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"If you remember the old adage, "Rome wasn't built in a day". Today's surveying is every bit as technical & complicated as engineering. We have to deal with GPS, different datums & projections & we have to know…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Ravi Shankar's discussion Grid vs ground for a large public works project
"Very interesting question. I am not prepared to comment off the top of my head but the problems are not unlike what is involved in highway construction. Various State Highway departments have published information on this, Texas as an example.…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to ROB ROSA's discussion One Man Surveying
"Different strokes for different folks. I am not an employee for starters & I don't try to tell others how to run their business. What works for me may not work for you. I am trying to be semi-retired & mostly do boundary work solving…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Joseph C. O'Connor's discussion Open Source Software and then more on Open Source.
"Mr. O'Connor, I don't know if my programming skills are good enough to be of help but I am very interested. I have become very disgruntled with the offerings available. I have been in need of replacing my old software for quite some time…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Robert Hain's discussion Schonstedt power switch
"At one point they would remanufacture the entire unit for a couple hundred bucks. Have you checked 3rd. party repair companies? It is just a rheostat switch. If you can get the specs on it, you should be able to find one that will work."

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Mitchell Grimm's discussion Compass Traverse Calculations
"All the above is basically true but remember, you have an angular closure that is independent of the summation of the latitudes & departures. How do the angles from the compass traverse compare with the angles from the transit (theodolite)…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Mitchell Grimm's discussion Compass Traverse Calculations
"The thing to remember about a compass survey is that if you get a bad compass reading, the error stays in that one leg. If you bust an angle in a transit survey, the error is carried through the entire traverse. You may have a bust in your compass…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"Yes Kate, you are right of course. Errors are most likely to be found in S/D boundaries hence the general rule is to use interior control for lots. However, nothing is cast in concrete. It is also true that the adjoining tract could have senior…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"I hope you are saying that "tongue in cheek". I believe I  detect a bit of sarcasm. I try to stay out of court but the last time the surveyor for the opposing party said something like that, namely, "some surveyors think they…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"All have made some good points. I have done quite a bit of rural retracements & to borrow an expression from our British friends, some have been pretty sticky. A case I am presently working on has our county "Master in Equity" as the…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Todd Deckard's discussion HP41 ASTRO*ROM documentation
"I don't know anything about the ASTRO ROM but the old HP 41 had a program to calculate azmuths from star shots & sun shots. GPS has added another dimension & made the associated calculations & corrections more complicated but not…"

Hi Charlie, I just want you to know ,I have the deepest respect for you and got you back anytime.You and surveyors like us are a dying Breed that the world will never see again after we are gone.People today instead trying to find the problem and fixing it, their first solution is to use a computer to adjust everything,this means there is not a thing that is correct it's just adjusted,like you said a 90 is a 90 and a 100 is a 100 that what i was trying to tell him,make sure you two are on the same page with Angles and Dist. then go from there. No Charlie your are the kind of surveyor i have work for my whole life, be it one person or a large company and i had some good teachers.Your opinion means a lot to me

always.

And thanks for being a friend,billy
