  1. Leadership at the 'Deid

    Does JohnQ know about this extortion? I don’t mean to complain, I know there are places where people would have paid anything to be able to skype home and there was no internet available. I just don’t get where free internet turned into $100/month.
  2. Leadership at the 'Deid

    What is the deal with the internet now. Its been over 5 years since I have been out there and getting ready for my farewell tour. The rumor I heard was that you now pay for your usage and it is expensive. I bet that kills the World of Warcraft crowd that was hogging all my bandwidth back in 2011, bastards.
  3. I emailed the promotion guys a couple weeks ago about records and PRDA. I thought the “as met” shows up after the board convenes, but it’s actually after the board is released. I am expecting to hear words around 9 April just based off the last couple boards timelines and the fact that SWA’s application window closes on 8 April. I’m sure the AF would love to screw the twice passed over guys just one more time if they can.
  4. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Having been a PIT IP, you are totally right. Typically, the guys who volunteered to go to white jets were phenomenal instructors. The guys who were “screwed one way or another” typically were bottom dwellers in their community who no one wanted around.

    No more ELP downgrades. Lol
  6. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Yeah, never understood that and it always pissed me off because they always stop me when I’m running late for something.
  7. Ad that forcibly takes your browser to “Amazon” iOS

    I haven’t gotten it at BO yet, but I get that same redirect on other pages.
  8. Chances for Fighter Units?

    Yeah, I had already screenshot his ridiculousness and forwarded them to my bros. He is gonna spread them around and I am gonna leave it up to them to handle. I have no problem with people giving honest, straight to the point feedback. It’s when you cross that line to tell people not to apply or to give up. I think that says more about the person giving “advice”.
  9. Chances for Fighter Units?

    Problem solved, I just sent this thread over to my buddies at Buckley.
  10. Since they never update the board status page, I emailed them and got an email back from the promotion people, the O-4 board was briefed to the SECAF and now with her “lawyers”. WTF does that mean?
  11. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Can’t run to the airlines if they can’t fly on Active Duty... kinda liking cutting off your nose to spite your face.
  12. Congrats brother! Does anyone have any experience getting cleared through the ARC/SGP to Palace Chase with a C-1 Limitation (Shellfish Allergy)? I’m assuming they mean the Guard units’ SGP and not the overall ANG/SGP.
  13. Latest Movies

    Just saw Game Night. It was okay. Not the worst movie I’ve seen, but I have no clue how it got such high ratings from RT.
