  1. I've gone into the control panel and banned him, deleted his posts, and removed any reputation points he has given.
  2. HarleyQuinn is in time out. The adults may continue their conversation.
  3. Correct, I should have clarified short call. Widebody reserve on short call living in domicile is the objective for the guy who wants to maximize the pay to flying ration (that's me). I was international in Miami, now I'm domestic in DFW. I'm a 737 guy - I heard that while we were driving up to and over guarantee in MIA, the Bus guys were sitting around bored out of their minds in a crash pad.
  4. When I sat reserve in MIA, I was usually close to or over the min guarantee on hours (73-76). In the past four months since I switched to DFW, I have averaged around 50 hours. I'm told it's even better sitting reserve on widebodies.
  5. I don't know that there are any flight docs who still lurk here, but I've added this to the existing thread, which should provide some background.

    Just saw The 15:17 to Paris. Just...terrible. When I saw the trailers I was skeptical about how they could make an entire movie out of an isolated event, but this is from the same guy who did the same sort of thing with Sully. Nope. Part of it was the acting - just bad all around. It was a risky move to use the actual guys playing themselves, and it did not play out well. So much of the dialogue seemed forced, which is ironic since it really was their own. The kids that portrayed their younger selves were awful as well. From 15 minutes in I wanted to leave, and it only got worse as it went on. By about an hour in, it was just painful - it's seemed like I was just following them around Europe on a pointless documentation of everywhere they had been. There was an overt point to be made that everything in their life had led to this point, and there were several scenes that tied to the attack with things they had done or learned, but it was just too much. The actual train scene was pretty impressive, albeit short, and honestly if the movie had only been 20 minutes long, I really wouldn't have had any issue with it.

    Huggy - Looks like it works. Operator error?

    I don't know the answer (DFRESH would know), but my guess is that it's tied to the software upgrades on the board and not something that one of us has done. I tried it on this post - I'm assuming you still don't see my name.
  9. I don’t know that we got it answered, we just locked down the troll account that took his over.
  10. Yeah there Cochise, I was actually born in California and lived there until I commissioned into the AF. I didn’t say BART, I said mass transit, which I used a good deal growing up because I didn’t have a car until I went into the AF. Maybe you should Google mass transit to see all that it encompasses other than BART.
  11. Get a car. It sounds like you're used to being able to travel in California via mass transit - that's not going to work at UPT bases. Plus your schedule will vary - extremely early reports some days and late on others. I've never heard of a student trying to buy a car only for UPT. If you're coming on active duty, just buy a car and get it financed through USAA.
  12. I'm okay with this. If you get to the point where you legitimately challenge Mardon's income, then we'll charge for advertising, but for now I'm happy to support the little guy.
