Air-Forceca-Ico Question for Mods and / or those who run the board.

September 26, 2014, 11:53:52 by shadreamer

I did a bit of research for a novel here a while back and to show my appreciation, I would like to offer complementary copies to the board and / or it's members for assisting me.  The novel came out in July and is doing very well.

Before I posted anything specific, I just wanted to see how you wanted to handle this (or not). If you don't want me doing this, I'll certainly respect your wishes.

I can send copies to the board mods or owner to hand out, or you can run a draw and I can mail paperbacks (or email ebooks) direct to the winners. Alternately, I can offer them to the people who responded to my thread.

To be clear, I'm not looking for any sort of endorsement or advertising. These will be gifts, pure and simple. If paperback, I can offer up to six copies. For ebooks, we can discuss.

Feel free to send me an email to my addy if you prefer.

Regardless of the decision, thank you for providing this forum.  :)

xx Personal question , could use some guidance

November 26, 2014, 19:35:31 by krimynal
First off I didn't know where exactly to post this , so Admins feel free to move it if it needs to.

I am currently a Gunner in a Reserve unit here in Quebec.  2 Months ago I applied for a transfer to REG Forces for 3 different trades :

1 - AWS Tech
2 - AVS Tech
3 - Artillery

I spoke with the recruiting center , just wondering about my personal file ( physical , aptitude test and what nots ) just making sure I was competitive enough for the trades.  The result I got were that I really don't have to worry about this side of things. 

The 1 thing I need to worry though is AWS Tech needs High Maths ( 436 ) , and AVS Tech needs Mid Maths ( 426 ).  I only have Low maths right now ( 416 ).  I already applied for Adult school , to do my 426+436 in case I get any offers. 

The problem that I have right now is that I applied for the FO 1-15 starting in January with the reg force.  What I am scared of is to not have the chance to complete those maths before it starts.  With all the Christmas break coming , I won't be able to get access to the books / exam rooms. 

Then my problem is on one hand , I want to get it done as soon as possible just to be ready whenever I get an offer from the Reg Forces for my transfer.  On the other Hand I really would like the opportunity to do the training in January. 

I was just looking for some guidance about what would the best thing would be , Should I take the risk and go with the training without completing my maths , but if I get an offer , have to decline it , and hope to get another one soon enough.  Or should I stick with night school do it as fast as possible , which would make me miss the training , but be ready in case an offer gets out ?

( feel free to comment or criticize )
