xx Increase font in quotes

May 06, 2017, 20:25:53 by Messerschmitt
I'm suggesting to increase the font in quotes. I stopped trying to read text in quotes that's more than 2-3 lines. The crazy small font hurts my eyes.

xx Picking up Ship’s pieces: SPLIT from-Re: "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification"..

Yesterday at 07:28:52 by FSTO

Lastly I wouldn't over inflate the RCN's grasp of logistics, if I were you.  I cant speak for others but I don't hold the understanding or appreciation of Logistics by MARS O's in great esteem.  The Army, while as difficult as it can be, at least understands it needs beans and bullets to fight and win, the RCN seems to see it as some dark voodoo magic that isn't worth the time in understanding or respecting, until it all goes to shite and the Log Dept is left to pick up the pieces again.


If I had a dime for every time I heard one trade in the Navy say that they had "to pick up the pieces again" when commenting on the competence of the other trades I'd be fairly well off.

xx Moving to Esquimalt?

April 29, 2017, 20:19:05 by Daishi
Hello all,

Just a quick few questions as all the threads Ive found are ancient. After basic for MARS Officer I've been told Ill have to move out to Esquimalt to do atleast 1 year of training, and possible be posted out there.

Now, I live in Toronto. Are their resources made available to you to MOVE out there? I am a single male and I'm just wondering how the process of actually moving out there goes. Are you provided with housing, or do you have to do all your own research and rent a place as close as you can to the base? What is the typical rent cost out there?

Thanks!

xx Put on Goon!!!

April 28, 2017, 22:38:33 by Jaydub
When did Goon become such a popular movie on ships?  Every time someone is trying to watch a movie, someone will invariably shout "This sucks!  Put on Goon!!!" People in my mess are starting to make copies of the Goon video file under different file names. You click another movie file and... Goon!

I've seen this on at least three different west coast ships. Is Goon the new Boondock Saints?  Do they do this on the East coast as well?  It's so ridiculous.
