Price has gone up $10 since release, and the discount percentage is lower than when it went on sale then, too.

For the first time in history, two women have completed the vigorous training curriculum and will graduate from Army Ranger School on Friday.

However, the Pentagon isn't expected to make final decisions about exactly what combat roles women will be allowed to fulfill until later this year.

Quote from: Pentagon press release
Nineteen women and 381 men started Ranger Class 06-15 on April 20, 2015. Eight women successfully completed RAP week; however, all were recycled into Ranger Class 07-15 as Darby inserts for a second attempt at patrolling. After the second Darby Phase attempt, five were dropped from the course and three were given a Day one recycle into Ranger Class 08-15, starting the course again on June 21, 2015. These three women successfully met the standards of the Benning Phase and moved on to the Mountain Phase on July 10, 2015. All three women passed the knot test, military mountaineering skills assessment, the foot movement up Mount Yonah, and were given opportunities to lead patrols. One woman recycled into Ranger Class 09-15 to start the Mountain Phase again on Aug. 9, 2015. Two women received a passing grade in the mountains during platoon level combat patrols and moved on to the Swamp Phase on Aug. 1, 2015. The two women also met the standards of the Swamp Phase, proficiently leading waterborne platoon level combat patrols and will earn the Ranger Tab on Aug. 21, 2015.

I may try to find something that has a strategic and progression system deeper than World of Warships and Borderlands 2, but the odds are not high.

Seeing as I stream music constantly at my desk, my wife (3GB plan) and I are averaging 8GB a month.  Per AT&T's site, I could save a whopping $5/month to move to a 10GB plan with unlimited talk and text. 

I think I'll pass.

World of Warships. Grinding XP in the SC battleship is taking a while. I want the U.S.N. carriers. I'm taking the IJN on the destroyer side, which was lucky, as they have the better torpedoes.


What happened with your air conditioner?  At last update, it was brand new and barely keeping up with the heat wave. icon_frown

They came back out on Monday and fixed a valve issue that, per their reports is common and their installers didn't bother to check.  Everything's peachy now, and Dad told me that he successfully griped them into cutting me a $50 check toward my electric bill for it running all that weekend trying to get it below 74.

It's in open beta.  I've played enough to get into Tier IV, a feat I never managed in Tanks, and have maxed the level 8 rank progression.  Anyone out there?

I'm loving the IJN destroyers.  The South Carolina battleship?  Not so much.

Despite thermostat settings below it, the house temp never got below 75 today, something that the old unit never had a problem with. I am not a happy camper.

~$5800, actually.  5 ton unit, new pad, new ducts, new drainage system, the works, apparently.  A York unit, which the guy raved about, saying he'd never lost a coil in three years.

I called the place at 7:05, got a tech in the truck, he set an appointment for 9:30, and after all is said and done, they're saying that they'll be done by 5 today.

Well, I'm living in Corinth while working in Grand Prairie.  When you get some time, hit me up and we can go grab a drink or something.  I haven't hit the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth yet.  I'm sure it will pale in comparison to the one at the lake, but I'm willing to give it a look.

Sorry for the extended absense - I've transitioned jobs (finally!) and my new gig blocks GT.  frown     I'm working on fixing that (soon!) but it does make it difficult to post and keep an eye on things. 

I find Chrome Remote Desktop to be a godsend.  Obviously, someone of your technical skills and position might have a better solution, but for those of us that have less than those, it's nice.

My backlog has exploded.  The value seeking makes it so that I'm never paying $60 a title, which means, even if I had a current gen console, I still wouldn't be in the impressions stage of an active conversation. 

That, and the site has been blocked by my work filter.

Phase 1 complete

Quote
The three remaining women attending Army Ranger School as part of an ongoing assessment of how female soldiers should be more fully integrated into the service have passed a major hurdle, completing the first of three segments in the course and moving on to its Mountain Phase.

Army officials announced the result Friday, saying in a news release that 158 men and all three women will move on to tackle the next portion of Ranger School at Camp Merrill in Dahlonega, Ga., about 65 miles north of Atlanta, beginning Saturday. It was the third and final attempt for the remaining women, who had failed the initial Darby Phase at Fort Benning, Ga., twice before.
...
The Mountain Phase is 20 days long, and includes intensive training and operations in the Chattahoochee National Forest. There are four days of military mountaineering training, four days of technique training, 10 days of student-led patrols and one administrative day when students are counseled on their performance. Those who pass will move on to the third and final phase of Ranger School in the swamps of Florida beginning Aug. 1.
...
Any woman who passes the course will make history and be allowed to wear the Army’s prestigious Ranger Tab, a decoration that is admired across the military. However, they will not be allowed to join the elite 75th Ranger Regiment, which conducts Special Operations missions.
