We'll I'd have to say I am your average 20 year old I can do anything short of flying (and fixing my own computer, other peoples I usually dont have a problem with) private in the us army wondering why I joined because now I'm sitting in hot 130 degree desert of Iraq instead of going to an IT school to further my geek skills like I originally joined the army for... Bad luck if I've ever seen it!!!

Hot, smelly, the internet the offer for a PC is about a quarter speed of dial up, which is really obnoxiously slow, oh and to top it all off our vice president owns the company KBR, which is basically a company of civilians that do simple jobs that the army train you for, forcing soldiers to do something they arnt really trained for, AND they like cutting the power in my quarters about 3 times a week for "generator maintnence"

I'm intelligence at a detention facility in the south lol, some details would be classified but it'd bore you even if I could tell you... But the British Army just got outta here not to long ago, I kinda miss those guys watching our backs, now I have to rely on the US air force

Eh well all the departments of the US military are kinda rivals, well coast guard doesnt count, but the army rivals with the marines the most, and since I work with air force we bash them, they bash us... really it's just kinda a morale builder, each service has to be better than the other so we're always one uping the next guy, hense making ourselves better in the process. I just think its backwards, they should be in here doing the computer work being the "chair force" and we should be out defending the parimeter.

@ alevee: speet metal, power metal, melodic metal, simphonic metal.. some j-rock.. but mostly european metal.. Germany and Finland are the countries that have the best bands I've ever heard.. and/or seen.. (there are other countries... but most of them come from those countries =D)

I'll have to check those out when I get back to the computer that doesnt have 98% of the internet blocked, I really dont like these government computers, extremely limited rights, most blocked internet, probably the cause of me spending the entire 12 hour shift with this site open while I work, then for another 2 or 3 hours while I'm on the laptop so I can check out all the links posted on here, but yet I might say that this is one of the best forums I have ever been too, you can actually find answers on here for all levels of tech knowledge!!! I have to say the OT makes the day go a lot faster lol
