Oh Hell.........

Being ever helpful and wanting to help the hard pressed Ninja out I'll start a "Top Ten" frequently asked questions and answers kinda thread on here to relieve the pent up pressure the potential young thrusters have in getting answers and getting answers NOW! If anyone want to muck in and help out I'm sure Ninja will appreciate it.

Question.. Is training hard?
Answer... Yes.

Q.... Where is it
A... Lympstone, it's a quaint little place in Devon.

Q... Can I take my dog?
A... No, Exmouth is full of them, adopt one whilst you stay at Lympstone.

Q... Can I call myself a Marine when I start training?
A... No, You are a Nod.

Q... So, I'm a Marine when I pass out of training?
A... No, you're a sprog, but yes, you are a technically a Marine.

Q... When do I go wind surfing?
A... Soon.

Q.... Can I take my unique hair style to Lympstone?
A... Yes, that's fine, however, our in house hair stylists may well improve on your unique design.

Q... Can mum visit?
A... yep sure can, she cant see you though.

Q... What Iron do I take?
A... Dont bother, they are provided.

Q... What civilian clothes should I take?
A.... Not to much, Louis Bernard will sort you out for an exorbitant fee.

I'm sure the rest of the lads have a few tips.

Cheers Blobbs, knew I could rely on your support. I shall wear it always.

Looking at site stats here & on the "other place" the other day I was quite surprised by the number of "active users" (those registered users who log-in over the last 30 days):

That's a bit of a head ****. 700 odd "active members"? jeez, I'd be hard pressed to find 700 active members on some of the porn sites I frequent.
An active member is someone who has logged in during the last 'x' days. As the site admin you can set 'x' to whatever you want!

BCO... When I was running events our website had a bit of kit that showed where people who visited it were from, quite useful if you are putting a show on in say Liverpool but all your hits are coming from Edinburgh, gives you an indication that the advertising is being targeted in the wrong area.

What I found interesting was how world wide the hits were, you could see people had visited from antarctica, Oz, Israel etc. Useless for visitor numbers through the gates but showed there's bored people all over the world just surfing the net.
Q. When do we get our guns?
A. you should already have well developed Biceps, the friendly PTIs will help your 'guns' along.

Q. Are we allowed out on Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights, Ive heard there's some banging clubs in Exeter?
A. The only clubs you'll be seeing are the one's on the PTIs oh so tight vest.
