    ...but only for five months. I'll be serving the military beginning from tomorrow, and if things go as planned (which they never do in my case), I'll be back in August.
    So no crunching in between. I can't let my computer run five months without watching them.

    I'm home during weekends (maybe), so I'll let it run then. But the outputs will be little.

    So goodbye guys, I'll be fully back in the late summer:toast:

    We will try and make up the loss of output. Your contribution will be missed. We will be here when you come back. Stay safe until we see you again. :toast:

    Ahh, switzerland... you have to serve in the military, but you get to keep your rifle and the government provides you with ammo.

    Is now forbidden to carry the rifle at home. ( we use the FAS 90, i remember in soldier of fortune you can use it )

    Just because a few years ago, a soldier who had just finished the recruits shot a sixteen year old girl waiting for the bus ...

    He confessed that it was just to try his rifle...

    From that moment every Swiss military must leave and deposit his rilfe in the barracks before go home.





    Ah well transmissions, not a function that requires very physical effort, but deep knowledge in communication and especially in radio communications.

    Well, actually five months have become eight.

    If I knew back then that this statement was telling the truth...

    Yeah...no.

    Well... winter does the trick, too

    Anyways, as you see, my army duty is over. Well for now. Some things have changed (inevitably, damnit), as I was promoted to Sergeant (which added the extra three months), and I changed my field (no more transmission, but rather big fat rocket launchers, yay)

    SO, I'm back at crunching again. More or less fully. I'll be moving soon (hopefully), so that will force a brake again, but not that long.

    :rockout:
