my mother is a civilian and works for the military. she is person responsible for the ammunitions at a large army base and has a bunch of soldiers under her direction -- they've been quite busy this past year. i was home recently and we went on the base to shop at the PX...security has been stepped up immensely after 9.11. in high school, i used to be able to drive to friends' houses on the base with ease. now, there is only one entry point onto the base (there used to be 6 or more). you have to drive through a maize and then soldiers with guns check you paperwork and ask your purpose for your visit, etc. they look menancing to say the least. my mom was with me at the time and i made a comment about all these young 18 year old guys with machine guns and how it made me a bit nervous. she quickly informed me that they weren't issued any ammunitions...it is just for show. that makes me nervous, too. <br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
When answering computer questions, he sounds like he's had more experience than an 13 year old.<br><br>Rakka: way to go. It is great! You offer some good assistance and help here and on Mac Central forums.<br><br>I am 66, but instead of learning more about computers, I just seem to be forgetting what I already had down pat. . .<br><br>
Most kids these days know 10 times more about computers than any 5 adults combined. I got started with computers with the Apple II, then a "no-name" PC I had for a few years, then switched to Mac. <br><br>While I rarely have an issue that I can't figure out on my own, I have always found over the years to ask the people younger than me for answers. Many times, the opinions of "younger" people are overlooked by older, more "experienced" adults just because of their age... to me, it just shows how ignorant, egotistical and foolish some "adults" can be.<br><br>While I haven't seen Rakka display an bits of hidden wisdom relating to computers, I have never discounted any advice he has given about them because the little turd could probably figure out a way to hack into my computer, if given enough time! <br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

Right the M-16s are not loaded but their side arm is. I believe they are given one clip for the side arm and that it must be returned at the end of their watch. When the security level goes to the highest they then load M-16s.<br><br>I used to go on the Army base to go bowling but after 911 they closed it to non Army personel<br><br>
