Have We been got at Fred ??????

April 6, 2015

Well done to all those who got the site back up and running, I don't always contribute but it is good to keep links to former comrades and those I never had the pleasure to serve with, being just a slip of a lad :) This site does put the official SCOTS DG site to shame and I agree with JKW and Dave F that despite the competition from Facebook more could be done to promote the site and encourage use.  That said I think 'official' sites are always very wary of political correctness and the banter and opinions enjoyed on this site might be too scary for an official site. The cynic in me thinks that is why the SCOTS DG site is so poor in the hope that awkward navigation will prevent non-PC discussions.  It is a pity that the unofficial SCOTS DG site run a few years ago by Sean O'Neil faded away it was very similar to this and had a very active membership. One last thing despite all the rhetoric you hear from Wee Nicola there are still plenty of us mad Jocks who still want to retain the Union so please do not tar us all with the same brush.

David, I put my left hand twitch down to the same result of multiple entries!! I would not be welcome in the Nuclear Strike HQ Ops room in charge of THE button, and no mistake....mistake, OOPS, done it this time.... Easter was great, thank you, and our Nunshigum Dinner on Saturday was another good one too. However, Colonel Ross did the dirty on me, he asked if my internet was fixed yet, and like a fool I said "yes thank you", then when I got home, my internet had gone down again, so I think JR is an electronics disaster!!! I will never admit to having t'tinternet ever again in his company !! Enjoy the warmer weather which is promised later this week (???) Tom

David, I have a similar problem with my left hand, which every now and then has a "twitch" moment, so I am glad I am not in charge of "THE" button in the UK nuclear strike centre, God knows what could happen... I did enjoy Easter thanks, quiet but had visitors from time to time, which was great.  The Nunshigum Dinner was also a great affair, but John Ross put his foot in it there ... he asked me if my internet was now up and running after being down for some time, to which I said "yes, since Thursday", but when I got home, I could not send a note to John Scrivener, because MY INTERNET WAS DOWN AGAIN!!!. I obviously believe JR is an internet troublemaker!!! Actually, it was nice of him to remember, and ask the question!!   Tom

Tom; Gary is clearly twitchier than me; as evidenced by his triple posting. Mine was purely impatience!! If you remember those first hand/eye coordination games you could play on your TV screen; well I was the most "rubbishest" person ever to try them. When we were stationed in Tidworth around 87ish' some of us went on a visit to the USAF base in Oxford, I forget their precise nom de plume. Anyway, Marty Graham and I got to fly the F11 (I think: it was a USAF fighter jet anyway) simulator. Marty, ex rotory pilot did brilliant. Then me. I crashed not only the aircraft but also the vast array of computors that steered the damn thing. The US boffins in the hall were flabbagasted at how badly the whole system went down. Exit stage left to bar!!  Hope the weather holds we plan a visit to the Lakes and then; groan,,,,she who must be obeyed has me detailed for a shopping trip to Harrogate!!
