nice. Yeah currently hold the title of Director but since I only have two staff (server engineer and desktop engineer) i am also the main network and systems architect/engineer.

before my current gig I worked for a VAR and an Engineer, Sr Engineer, Director of IT, and lay position they was Solutions Architect.

most of my carrier was in windows but the current gig is 98% Linux so I thought myself that over the last 3 years.
yea titles are all over the place and have been diluted, polluted and distorted over the years. One job was a small shop and everyone was a VP or Senior that...lulz

Did ISP in late 90s, went into document imaging (var) for awhile and ended up at a 9to5 that was a dead end, left for school, then back to the flame like a moth, but this time it's my way. Love it.

I'm ready to ditch windows entirely. Swapped my laptop over to Manjaro KDE and haven't looked back! Desktop is next but there are a few programs that I use a lot that don't have linux versions and I haven't taught myself how to use a VM to run windows/ windows programs just yet.

Keith not Kyle.

Thanks.
I haven't had a chance to play with it much. Showed up while I was on one of 3 conference calls.

I need to order an arm for my getto PVS-7B that I have.
Also need to order the arms and adapters to mount the Ops-Core AMPs to it when they show up some time in October

oh. I didn’t get that.

I don’t see that guy as a devil or a hero
he was in a bad situation that arguable he shouldn’t have put himself in.

I don’t think just because he had a rifle it means he was out there to kill people.

But he is no hero.

if it weren’t him, it would have been someone else who may not have handled the situation as disciplined as he did.
The events that took place would have unfolded regardless. Several have been dispatched by one person who took it upon himself to try to protect a community after seeing results of other regions that were left to burn.

To me, a hero is someone who will throw themselves in harms way to save those who are unable to protect themselves.

By my definition alone, I would call him a hero.
This does not mean Im putting this kid on a pedestal or saying I’d have done exactly what he did because I wouldn’t. I’m staying my ass at home because putting myself in a situation like that means I’m not home protecting my family and they’re the only ones that matter in my life.

not trying to change your mind, just wanted to throw a different point of view out there.

From the videos of the actually shootings I think he handles that part very well. His shots were accurate and on target. Not a lot of rounds going all over the place.

in general I think we through the term hero around way to much and it has lost a lot of its meaning.

Nice brain bucket. I debate a lot with myself about whether or not I should invest in armor and stuff. I hope I'm never in a situ where I need/want armor and I can't justify it for larping around. So that leaves me at the whole "grey man" thing if something does pop off and bailing out as quick as possible. Which for moving quick and blending, not wearing a bunch of kit makes sense.
Still want plates eventually just to have em and night vision. Ideally a thermal monocular and a NV monocular setup.

I figure there's two phases when the shit hits the fan.

Phase 1) you shelter in place and defend your house/property the best you can.

Phase 2) Assuming you survive phase 1, you get the fuck out of dodge to a place where you're less likely to encounter people/things that you'll need to defend yourself against.

Other then just SHTF and LARPing I actually enjoy taking training classes.
Do you need armor and ballistic helmet for class .. no. But does it hurt to have and wear it as PPE during the class assuming you have the desire to drop the coin.

I have NVG (as out dated as they are) and running the skull crusher harness really sucks. Helmet is mainly there for mounting the NVG. Did I need a ballistic helmet ... not really but it provides some extra protection .

Classes are on my list of things I need to do. They are just $$ I can't justify right now. Similar to armor lol.
