IS op's geek or unique? Pasty faced firewall talking server building nonces. Or super intelligent future of the army?

S.A.P.....Once again you demonstrate that your grasp on current affairs is as tenuous as your, strangely fitting alias.
IS Ops do not exist anymore, or have you been asleep under your rock for the last month or so??
Now, the trade formally referred to as IS Operator (or geeks to those who got rejected, or are 17 year lance jacks with a CLAIT qual, and think they are Bill Gates) has recently changed to IS Engineer- the reason should be obvious- even to one of room temperature IQ such as your good self.

How many people who have whined about IS Engineers, have put their papers in for the IS trade and got told to DO ONE by MCM div?

1. Most

2. A few

3. None

Hmmmm hard one that.... which catagorie do you fall into SAP?

I think the term is "retort", and it is a "poll" not a "pole", although you might be more familiar with the latter.
It is not geeky in the slightest to be able to communicate in ones own language.
Or are you simply practicing "unemployed speak" for your resettlement?
LOL

yeah whatever. I just hope that you put as much time in your work as you do into this and looking for people spelling mistakes.
And one can kiss my fat hairy ass!!

Geek or Unique? Unique, kind of like that - Geek, no longer an insult. As for being pasty faced and white - have you ever seen a Spec Op :)

True, geeks get invited to the party -and can hold their own - although they still need to make a social statement.

Nerds, they get invited to the party and everyone gives them a wedgie. Oracle DBA's take note :wink:

Hmmm, so then S_A_P, what is your trade exactly? I agree that people who moan about IS Engrs are in fact jealous of the wealth of knowledge that the majority of us have acquired during our time within this trade. This wealth of knowledge will no doubt be priceless when the time comes for us to go out into the big wide world of Civvy Street. So what will YOU be doing in civvy street?

BIG ISSUE... ANYONE FOR THE BIG ISSUE!!!

Now now...let's not cheapen the argument to petty squabbling about civvy quals. That's one of the reasons that many of the brethren (and sistren?) in the IS roster are often resented. We should be using quals to add value to the service we provide, not to feather our own nests.

...sorry, I'm doing a business studies course at the moment. I can't help myself!

PD :D

I think you'll find that S_A_P is a rather poor excuse for a VERY young and inexperienced individual who is trying, and I have to say having some success, to upset the aplle cart and turn ARRSE into a bitchin forum instead of the home for rational debate.

Or is he just a jumped up little Sh*t?

You decide

S_A_P you're the sort of individual who doesn't understand intelligent debate or possibly, as highlighted previously a Potential IS Op/Engr REJECT!!!

One question you should ask yourself!! Who do you ask for advice if you have a problem with your PC/Laptop/PDA? I will bet that you wouldn't put it in to PC World and be charged a fortune for the privilege when the good ole IS cell will do it for a 6 pack or more than likely for free.

Do it for free? That reminds me...you still owe me a sixpack for imparting my Access trickery and tomfoolery many moons ago at Shrivenham.

Aaahhh the good ole days of Shrivenham. Thankfully I've come a long way since then - "Select * from Emp where Emp No = ******".

Wow...you've managed to answer the "geek or unique" thread question by that piece of SQL.

However, since you've broken the ice, I reckon the last IS Selection board was decided via the SQL SELECT * FROM tblNominees WHERE CEQ = "SysEngrTech". :wink:

PD

Bugger me with a fishfork, that was far too coneheaded...best lie down for a bit.
