9-1-1, how may I save you?

Sorry about the lack of postage, real life has kept me off the 'puter lately; I really needed to go to bed at non-EVE-friendly hours (ie: early) because I've been going forward in my quest to enter the City of Montreal's 9-1-1 service. That means exams and having a brain in a semblance of shape to do them. And now that the first run of exams are done, the biggest part was filling in the paperwork for the security inquiry the police department will do, just to make sure I'm a good guy and only pod people in virtual worlds :))

I did get to play hard last monday when our traditionnal Jihad Monday turned into the Battle of R-MOC. The Jihad fleet was economically successful, as we killed a Sacrilege just after undocking, and I layed one of my best tackles on none other than a Rapier in the aforementioned system. Going head-to-head against a Rapier when flying a Stabber is not conducive to a lengthy live though, but I lasted long enough to take him into armor and when help showed up he got toasted. But then the opposition started to play a running game while we brought in real ships. Things got uglier after that as we discovered we didn't have the firepower to deal with 'em, plus we also discovered that these news enemies are working with our old gate-camping schmucks. Yay.

So there you go, a very short post as I head towards my parental duty weekend. So until next Monday, kill 'em a lot !!!

Yea running battles can be iffy things.

I'm a security guard in Toronto looking to be a cop. In Ontario you need a license to be a guard and getting it is a huge pain in the ass. I feel your pain, but at least you'll get paid much better then I.

It's not painful yet, apart maybe a pain in the butt :) But yeah, if this works it's gonna be the most responsibility I'll ever have had.

Uh, Coz, no it's not. You have kids.
Anyways, glad you got some EVE time in. Good tackle on the Rapier! Also, neat to hear about your real life stuff. Best luck with the rest of the process in your 911 quest.

That went with saying... having kids is like a million times more responsibility than landing the Space Shuttle :))
