Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Yes you may laugh but I don't know what a PID is. I get the impression it would be helpful if I did! :)

    Thanks in advance.

  2. its your job spec and place where you should be doing it..........
    per ident ?
  3. Ah right, that makes sense. What form would it take?

    Something like: GPMG gunner, 2 section, 3 Platoon, A Coy, 1st Loamshires?
  4. not far off
  5. Excellent. Thanks for that.
  6. Its 'Position ID', what used to be known as Line Serial Number (LSN) before JPA was introduced.
  7. It's your unique job number for your establishment manning table -the 8005. For example your Coy, Sqn, Bty establishment of say 103 pax will be split down into roles, from OC down to clerk and a 6 figure (off the top of my head) number given to it - your PID.

    Just realised I'm being serious and all grown up. To that end - tongue my date.
  8. Process Identification Number

    Run CMD exe and type netstat -aon. Then look to the right.

    This will be burned on to your gravestone - as you burn in Hell :)
  10. I thought it was pelvic inflammatory disease.

    Too warm for a coat, I'll just leave ...
  11. I just love ARRSE - in 10 replies we have three versions of what a PID is - take your pick - Per Indent, Postion ID or Personal Identification no-one!!! Just goes to prove that every ****** has an opinion on here and most of them are wrong!
  12. ...which would in fact make it a PIN.

    Aaargh! My pet hate: "I can't remember my PIN number." "Do you write down your PIN number?"

    It's PI Number, you stupid Twat. Bugs me every time I hear it.
  14. OS, have you been at the caffeinated stuff already?
