    The Next President is...

    Surprised we haven't had any commentary on the bullshit going on with this Supreme Court pick.

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    1) How do the training results hold up? 2) What value is there in every squadron spinning up their own version? 3) What is the level to which home-spin VR will be utilized to train of a single class iteration? 4) How does it get funded? 5) How do you get that shit to work with the Cyber dudes? That's just spitballing. By all means, keep home-growing (in each squadron) a separate solution to the same problem without any outside expertise for input.

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    So, lets say they manage to get through all those hurdles without a FWA or contracting complaint and getting slammed. When it breaks...who's going to fix it. And when this shithead CC leaves...is it going to stay in place? I love it when I'm busy doing my cyber stuff and my CC tells me to learn how to formation fly a civ T-6 on my "other" time, without OG or MX assistance. Strongly encourage a FWA call...

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    About as classy as the rest of his actions. Was anyone actually "cool" with him at that point or was everyone done with his shit?

    IPhone to Galaxy S9+

    Not an iPhone guy. I do have a Pixel 1, and I love the stock (non-samsung) apps and constant security updates. It's the reason I got the phone. No carrier bloat-ware either. It was almost $1K upfront, but I think it was worth it in the end. I got all Android OS upgrades before any carriers and all security updates the day Google released them. I would also add I haven't had a "slow-down" or other performance dings like I have with carrier provided phones. At this point with any other smart phone I'd be looking to trade it in since it wouldn't stay connected to data for more than 30 mins. Pixel is humming along fine for weeks at a time. I've got nothing bad to say for Samsung, just that I prefer the HTC phones more. I believe you can get an unlocked phone straight from them, but I don't know how that'll work with your carrier for security updates and OS upgrades. Pixel 3 should be coming out in Oct, so I'd wait for that. It was a little pain the the ass to setup my pixel w/ Sprint, I had to go into the store once. After that and a few hours it worked fine.

    Have you read them all, do they hold up to the originals? I wasn't a fan when I heard about how they continued the series, but love the original Clancy books.

    Not if you write the PD correctly, and hire correctly.

    A-10 retiring

    You have little to no impact or ability to really control the situation. Don't stress now about what you can't control, let alone really influence. You could be in the bird for 2 yrs then they do a swap...or 2 weeks. Guess how often they'll ask your opinion on it to make a decision.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    They have a kid together, so it's more a solid block than dodge.

    Wasn't that DTS/GTC born off the good per diem change? I don't care to check back through the pages, find a 2Lt to do it.

    Making the HPO thing official, not sure if this goes in this thread, or in what's right for being open about it. http://www.airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2018/August 2018/USAF-Seeks-to-Groom-Standout-Squadron-Commanders-.aspx
