I head down there Sunday for a handful of weeks. Weekend meet?
They're going to teach me to do the job I've been doing for months now, and that I earned a bachelors degree in. Should be.... boring
no they aren't. I used to give the briefing for the equipment I controlled to the ECOT guys. There is always one or two faghats that think they know everything. They would ask questions as if they were challenging me to see if I knew as much as they did. I would explain how the systems work in so much detail until their eyes glazed over and I knew I had lost them.
<egotistical faghat>So I assume your DHCP servers are configured for a lease time of thirty days, right? </faghat>
<egotistical Me> Well, you would assume wrong... blah blah blah blah </me>
<egotistical faghat now confused> Oh, I see.</faghat>
If I thought it was a valid question and they were actually trying to learn, then I would answer it and be a nice guy.
Don't be that guy, go into this knowing nothing. Correct no one. Dump it when you leave.
I'm going in knowing I need to re-learn everything the way the AF wants me to know it. Additionally, I'm not technical enough to sit there and argue specs on a system with someone who works day in and day out with something.
I'm not that guy, don't worry
dammit i fucking hate ECOTs. i'm probably goin to be the one giving the briefing at the next few for my shop. when exactly are you going to be coming through?
My class starts Monday, I'm done mid July
You won't come through my section.
I'm feeling a prank coming on.
Let me dwell on it and see what I can think up.
What's it like down there right now? is there a club setup at all? Commessary, BX? I heard it was still pretty tore up overall.
I won't come through your section, what section is that?
You should switch into a class that I'm attending and put up a goatse on the PP -- "This material is un OTceotaple, don't let your guys pass this stuff over email"
prepare to entertain yourself. The clubs blow. Commissary is tiny and makeshift. There are two mini-BXs, one in the class 6 and the other in the Triangle. There is an enlisted club, it used to be the marina, cheap beer is the only reason you should go.
I'm QA. You guys will take a tour of the local Comm squadron and one technician from each office will brief you on their equipment.
You could ask each briefer "How many megahertz do you have?" When asked to rephrase the question, just say it again with voice inflections on different words. It would be hilarious.
You could ask about the famed technician that everyone around the AF is talking about. All you know is that he works in the Indphrastrictire department and had a hole in his leg.
There are some decent restraunts around.
The Shed in Vancleve is only 11 miles up I10.
The Mellow Mushroom in Ocean Springs is nice, they have a ton of local beers on tap.
PM me for more.
You definitely need to hit these two though.
they stole our megahertz.
The "Cabana" recently opened in Gulfport. i hear its a pretty damn sweet venue.
"The Edge" in Gulfport isn't bad.
"Grocery St" in Ocean Springs wasn't really my type of scene.
I heard Grocery St blowed hard.
Lookout 49 is decent. The food is great too.
ok I'm here. who wants to show me around?
What building are you in?
meeting up with someone you know isn't fraternization. I'm not talking about hanging out each weekend , getting drunk, and cruisin' for women with them.
Lets go to the tittay bar!
He's a marine, fraternization is looking at an officer.
do NOT!!! look at me !!!
