(Sorry about posting slightly off-topic, but there's no better category) :oops:

I'm finally back with some free-time after finishing school courses, a heavy excercise schedule, and I'm now looking for a job(Again). Also switched Internet provider, which accounts for about a month of downtime.

Now I'll just have to catch up on the forum and some promises I made(Sorry Mel, been too busy to give you a comprehensive ballistic table with all shots fired in the same conditions).

Got some personal anecdotes from some live ops as well as excercises I might relate too, if you are nice

:wink:

I was thinking of making a "Where's Nek?" post, but decided against it. I've had to put up with Flea's ramblings (which are almost as bad as mine)in the forums since you've been gone! :lol:

Anyway, good luck on the job hunt, shouldn't be too hard.

Heh, thanks guys :D

About the job market, that's a bit harder... The competition is fierce, and there are few jobs in the areas which I have some serious skills in(Programming, architectural visualization, 3D special effects(specialized in lighting and particle simulation), system administration etc)

And I don't want to spend more time in school right now. It's fun, but gets tedious and mind-numbing pretty quickly.

You're good with a rifle. And from the sounds of it, you've done previous military work, so you could always hit up some PMCs. Especially the American ones, as they are probably hiring at this point of time like mad. Although PMCs focus more on providing defenses, compared to offenses, where a sniper is essentiallly the most used.

And nice to see you back.

I have no intention whatsoever of becoming a mercenary.

Nek,

Great to see you back! Sorry I'm a bit late getting to this post... I was busy myself all weekend working on a rifle and my shooting range... such is life.

Its great to see you are back, and I hope things work out for the job also. Let us know if we can help out anyway.

Mel:

Don't worry =)

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think there's anything you can offer, really. Unless you know someone in Sweden who is hiring? =)

OK, I'm back again(at least part -time, I'm still on meds, and very sleepy).

Had a S&R of a missing person go awry. Me and my spotter were walking over bog ground, when suddenly the dry patch I was stepping on collapsed. My foot sank into the bog, and wham, the vibrations triggered an explosion of a hand grenade or something that had been there since the 1940's sometime. My leg's in a cast, and I've been on painkillers(not fun, I'd have preferred to go without except I couldn't sleep or relax without them) and medication a lot.
