    Welcome to the aspiring police officer club.  I'm presently transitioning, hopefully to the RCMP.

Have fun in Nunavut.

Awh...that's not fair...there's lots of reserves up there that are looking for new meat..... ;D

Good day, all!  My name is Duey, and after 31 years spent in RCAF cockpits, I'm now working at looking at others in the cockpit while I sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight. ;D

It's an honour to support Mike in helping to make/keep the Milnet.ca family of sites one of the most relevant to the Canadian Armed Forces' greater community as possible.

Cheers,
Duey (aka G2G)

Hi Duey,
Not sure if this is the place to ask, but my "search" feature is not working. Any recommendations on how to fix it?

Thanks

Hey Guy,

I am not Duey, but figured I would respond anyways.

Looks like we may be having a global search issue.  I'll point Mike in the direction of the problem.

Hi Guy,

Allow me:

I just tried a search with the site's search engine and got a "search daemon unavailable" response.

Try opening google and typing: site:army.ca and then your search term(s) That's been a go-to for us for a while now.

Let us know how you fare out.

Cheers

A little bit of time in and Mike & I are wondering: how are we doing since the reboot of staff? I have a number of very positive PMs, but realize this covers barely a tenth of a percent of the site as a whole.

You can share here or feel free to hit me with a PM.

Thanks

Cheers

You haven't kicked me out yet, so either you're doing really well or really poorly? Not sure.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Fishing for compliments? 

If you're not getting complaints you're doing alright.   [:D

Haha, not at all - history has shown us that sometimes asking gets us the feedback others might be holding on to. :)

I expected more personality clashes but that didn't seem to happen.

Been a few heated debates which were handled well without issue.

You should change "chief of staff" to "Warmaster" because that sounds cooler. Or, in honour of Wainwright, change it to "adjudicator".

Never been to Wainwright. I'd have to change it to something to do with the Camelot, or Legends.

Legends *sniff*  :-[
