Time well wasted
« on: February 09, 2006, 10:55:20 »
Do you suppose, Mike, that you could whip up a little software module which would divide the time spent on army.ca by one’s age (determined by one’s DOB from one’s profile) to indicate what percentage of one’s life has been spent here?  Mine would be about 1/8th of 1% because I’m an old timer (65ish) but a (relative) newcomer (16 months) here.  This might replace the “Total time logged in” line and it might say something like: “Do you know you have spent X% of your life here on army.ca?”

BTW, Mike, it is time well "wasted "- great place for us old farts to keep abreast of what's happening in and to the CF.  Kudos to you and the DS for a job well done.
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.
Algernon Sidney in Discourses Concerning Government, (1698)

Thanks Edward, I get a lot of enjoyment out of meeting folks I would otherwise have no reason to converse with, so there's a selfish side to this whole affair. ;)

For those who want to get a sense for how much time you've wasted, take a look at one of these pages:

http://army.ca/php/timewasted.php
http://navy.ca/php/timewasted.php
http://air-force.ca/php/timewasted.php
http://milnet.ca/php/timewasted.php

You need to be logged in to the appropriate site before the stats will show up.


Cheers

Now, for that real comparison, how do we see Infanteer's stats?
Maybe the highest set of stats should always show for comparison.

How about mean time on line between posts?

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Crikey but I feel much better now after looking at the numbers for some of you lot.  I was beginning to think my wife might be right and that I had a problem.   I've got to go some to catch up to Kat.

Cheers. ;D

Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
