xx (Suggestion) Website template/design

Yesterday at 20:23:24 by PongoCadet

Not sure if this is the right place for this, or this is a sensible suggestion.

I'm not sure how the website is hosted, run or anything like that, I'm not trying to tread on the work or the staff, donators or anyone involved with this site or disrespect the efforts etc.

The website does seem to be of a outdated style, for whatever reason, and there are cheap and feasible ways to update this, for example XenForo, which would un-doubt ably be a major improvement and upgrade over the current setup, allowing for much better user experience, upkeep and so on.

There are cheaper softwares out there if this is too pricey.

Please bare in mind this is just a suggestion and I'm in no way slating or criticising the current setup, just thought I might bring it up is all. Obviously I understand there are reasons why the site has to remain as it is, and I'm not going to argue with it, its the owner's site afterall!

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

May 25, 2017, 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?

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.
