clip Top Menu Bar on DWAN - quirks mode

August 15, 2014, 11:06:17 by donaldk
Army.ca,

Is there any possibility to modify the DOCTYPE header to "strict" vice "transitional" so DWAN stations stay out of quirks mode?

On Shiplan's IE7/XP and DSB's IE9/W7 the top menu bar shows properly without having to open their F12 developer tools and bringing it off quirks mode manually every time the page is loaded?

Side note, On my own personal computers that run FireFox don't have issues with the menu bar and F12 isn't necessary.  I never used the F12 console especially at work before until MARLANT had issues with its new DWAN page not working on ShipLAN stations and direction came to use F12 as needed.

It currently reads:
Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
Propose change to:
Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
See attached PNGs.  Following links have some info about quirks:

xx LCol Dan Bobbitt (info needed)

August 25, 2014, 01:08:03 by Warren Layberry
I am looking for information on LCol Dan Bobbitt who passed away on May 14, 2014. He plays a small part in a research project I am working on, and I am trying to flesh out some background information on the man. All I am looking for is a more precise date for his promotion to Lieutenant Colonel. In many news reports after his death, it was reported that his promotion to LCol came in 2009. I just wonder if there is a way to narrow it down a bit more than that—even if just to a particular month in 2009. I have banged away at Google for over an hour now, but I can't seem to shake a date loose.

Thanks.

Armyca-Ico Trade switch Post BMQ

August 14, 2014, 14:38:46 by evmaclennan
good afternoon everyone

this morning I accepted a job with the forces for wep tech- land. My question to anyone who can assist - is the only way to switch trades by not completing your trade specific training or by fulfilling your initial contract? My first 2 trade preferences were infantry and combat engineer, I waited approx 600 days since application to job offer due to living out of the country for 6+ months so the process was quite long. I am happy to to a weapon tech if that's my only option, the gentleman who offered me the role requested that I accept or decline the role and would not comment on if the other 2 trades were available in the near future. I dont mean to come off as sounding ungrateful because im not, I Just simply had more interest in the other trades.

thanks in advance guys & girls.

xx Camaraderie

June 28, 2014, 13:21:59 by dennmu
Now I'm prepared to get some backlash on this topic, in fact i look forward to it.

Now before i start, please be advised I'm still a pup when it comes to the military. I wish I had of joined when I was eighteen rather then thirty-two, maybe  then i would have seen the level of camaraderie that i have heard so much about. Now I'm not saying there is no camaraderie in the forces, but i have noticed a major decline. It would seem to me, that the newer and younger generations have little to no understanding of what it means to truly work as a team, to befriend one another and support each other.

I have talked to many of the older generations, I hear the stories of how close everyone was, how supportive everyone was. I look around and i see little, to none of this now. I live in the PMQ's, and I can't get so much as a hello, let alone someone helping out with shoveling snow. I have heard stories of how great the mess was and how you worked hard and played hard with each other. I go to the mess, and it's dead. Worse off when we have a meeting, it's the only time the troops have been there, and most of the time not by choice. I end up hearing people complaining about the mess that they never attend,  and how they have to pay into it, it should be a choice.

I'm a little older, i like traditions and embrace them. I believe, in order to know where one is going, they need to understand where they have been. So i ask the older generations, what does it take to build the camaraderie of old, and what can i do to help. Help me and the next generation, build what seems to be lost, and carry on what is and should be, a familiarity of friendship and support for each other, a bond and devotion like no other.

xx Stay Down Inside your Crew Hatch !

June 21, 2014, 21:28:48 by Master Gunner
Guys. Recently in Wainwright it was very sad to hear of the loss of another Soldier who had passed due to a LAV III Rollover.
I was there that day and saw the vehicle overturned. I know firsthand after being in armoured vehicles as a crewman most of my life how things can quickly change as we train hard with or vehicles cross-country over very difficult terrain. Everywhere Troops in every type of armoured vehicle are riding way too high out of the cupola and I continued to see it until returning from the Training area.
Get your *** down inside the Hatch !!!!

icon17 Edmonton Recce

June 14, 2014, 16:34:21 by Scuba_Dave
So I have decided to take the long vigorous task of going from Navy to the Army (3 PPCLI hopefully). Currently on paternity leave until 27 Oct 14. My wife, daughter and I will be heading out to Edmonton to scope the place out later this summer, but our time is limited and I was just wondering if you folks could narrow our search in somewhere that would be great to live. We are looking for somewhere that is obviously not a cesspool, but we don't need anything to fancy. Probably looking at buying a house. Friends just got posted to Edmonton and are going on their HHT in about a week. From what we have heard Sherwood Park is a fairly decent place. But how bad is traffic in the mornings and afternoons? Anything you could help us with would be amazing!!

Cheers.

Being in the army is like being in the Boy Scouts, except that the Boy Scouts have adult supervision.
