Anyone know anything about Joint Venture 2008. Who will be taking part and who is taking the lead?
Pretty sure 30 Sigs has a big role.

Bag of shit in 2006. And the RAF field kitchen was pap - when you're living 40 to a room, chilli or curry twice a day isn't the best menu to be putting on lads, cheers.

Should any of the Staff Officers who will be coming out to play this year happen to read this - can any of you who fancy just sitting reading a newspaper/watching TV/dozing off with your head on a laptop/whatever go back to your rooms and do it instead of staying in work and forcing the Signals lads to stay in until almost fucking midnight every night?

Thanks.

Oh what a shame... I won't have to go through this again. Bag of bollocks, very badly planned and nothing for the lads to do when not working. Units deploying need to take some sort of welfare package with them, either that or a Kidney dialysis machine.

I was there in 2004. Possibly the most boring two weeks of my life...
How long? 30SR was sat in South Cerney for six frigging weeks in 2006.
I was only there for the main phase of the exercise, not the putting up or taking down. Unlucky!

PD great to see you are still alive the last one came to visit me down here in the antipodes and it was great to see a bunch of old mates and to be able to help them out with some wee problems. I belive you might get some info from CO 10 Sig Regt

JV this year will have an interesting new component to it, so heads up! :D
Pray tell, I'm one of the exercise planners, I'd hate to forget to put it in 8O

Air Component - check
Land Component - check
SF Component - check (must bring black maskers)
Maritime Component - check
Surprise Component - must remember :wink:

To bend Tony's Blair's jingo slightly "integration, integration, integration".

Just been on a visit to CWID and they are having a good stab at integrating all the networks and systems into a single management system, with reasonable J6 visibility, unlike previous JVs' system of lots of different panicking J6 staff phoning the world and then all trying to update the Netcen's excel spreadsheet.

I was impressed, though a little surprised at how much it all costs. And how much they would need to roll it out on JV.

Hey C'n'T - good to hear from you too. I'm not on JV this year - too busy training people at your old place. :D

Never thought to ask if you were going PD, visited this week too!

you mean XX, the name escapes me, for "enterprise" network management. Like the idea of it - will be a bonus for Netcen. Quite amazed that something to handle SNMP traps hasn't been deployed before now. Then again, no I'm not!

The effort to deploy it is I agree interesting. Was involved in some discussion about that this week but the value to the end users warrants it (IMHO).

Employing a whole teamload of QinetiQ engineers who are absolutely awesome at one tiny thing = £millions
A couple of experienced SNCOs from my gaff cutting the BS and coming up with a COTS solution in a few weeks = £not much - ok this might need a bit of backing up! :D
I'm sure there's one of those "for everything else there's mastercard" punchline in there somewhere.

That "XX" system was Tivoli NetCool, which was very good. ITIL-compliant too, unlike CA Unicenter and doesn't have all the knowledgebase replication probs and huge training overhead either. Cheaper than Openview, more intuitive as well and far easier to train. I want to run a comparison between all the above and Microsoft's own MOM and it's latest integrated offering MS SystemCenter. Not quite sure if there are enough hours in the day.
