    I prefer to deal with my issues around 500 meters out... #Army

    So, when #Army has an encoder-decoder in pylon 2 that's not talking to the armament computer, you what? Put it 500 meters away and shoot it full of holes?

    Yeah i guess you can say that to a point but saying which area you are in general wouldnt really be PERSEC. Now if i asked whats your address, phone number, and the building you work in then yeah definately PERSEC.

    I can make the Kessel run in under 12 PERSECs.


    On a different note, SpaceX emailed me back and said they would not be moving forward. No surprise. It seems this is a specific position with a specific skillset. Looks like I'll be moving to the Bahamas once HR gets hold of me for the other job. Even if for some weird reason that doesn't go through ( manager said I'm a really good fit for his team and he wan'ts me on board) it's really no sweat in the grand scheme of things.

    True, though recently they have been tightening down on this. It's pretty unit specific though.

    PMEL was a certification given to our tools. Example: torque wrench needed to be calibrated and certified x times a year. But I'm sure you know a hell of a lot more about it then me. I just used the tools and scheduled them for maintenance. Wish you the best with spacex

    Thanks man. Yeah That's about the extent of the experience I had. I managed our PMEL program, which had about 900+ items so I know all about the inspection / cal requirements, but we let the Lab do the precision cals for TMDE. I did system cals on aircraft but that's a whole different story.

    SpaceX emailed me back today saying I wasn't what the team lead was looking for, which I kinda figured. I wouldn't have kept my clearance if I went with them, so it looks like I'll be taking the job in the islands supporting the US Navy.

    Sorry to hear that Jolly. Support in the islands doesn't sound bad either. Keep aiming for the stars, one day you'll achieve your goals.

    And here I was thinking that it worked out for the best. Now we have a inside man for all the cash stored in off shore accounts. :slight_smile:

    Very good advice. If you have patience, preparation and persistence you can achieve any goal. Where one or two are lacking, you will probably miss your target. That is not a failure, because as long as you're on the journey it's easier to fix than it was to start the journey in the first place.

    That's cool enough!!! One of my all time favorite aircraft to fly in is the CP-140 Aurora.

    I'm sure you already know i was a Nuke so i never saw light of day. I was on board the 73 while it was stationed here in japan. Now i just work as a civilian doing other stuff now(cant be specific). Can you beleive about the Fat Leonard scandal? that was pretty crazy Capt Lausman was caught in all that. So glad he got caught that guy was a real peice of work never met someone so disrespectful and demoralizing in my life.

    Large scale corruption scandal and singularly the largest leak of classified data and intelligence to a foreign or corporate power. Over 350 officers and NCO's were caught up in it. Considered by us in the Intel field to be as damaging or more as the Snowden leaks.
    I do want to note, outside of some areas of the Navy and Intelligence fields almost no one paid it any attention.
