The daughter needs a computer for grade 7 in February.
Bought one today from hardly normal. Was $1600 picked it up for $1050 not cheap but I would rather save $500 today than pay full price at the start of the school year

Also bought 620l side by side fridge freezer was looking in one of them seconds electronic shop, then thought why not compare to hardly normal as well. (The old one is nearly 30yr old and has died twice in the last 12 months) anyway on HN had in stock, price was almost the same price, within $100 anyway. So I ended buying $1050 fridge freezer (hicense brand) last week was $1399 and a 6.3kw Fujitsu Ac for $1500, not sure on normal price.
Ouch my wallet is now crying in the corner

Fair point mate,
Hairs is my nick name, been called that for nearly 30 years.
My parents named me John, I removed the H in 82.
Reason, all the way through high school(79-82) there were 6 John's in my classes.
And I'm not like everybody else.

Just curious, do you think those up the chain of command should have kept quiet if they heard of or knew what was happening, or should have they reported those who killed civilians?

If they were doing their jobs properly, they would have known full-well what was happening / had happened.

If doing their jobs, (assuming they didn't agree with what had been done?) they would have jumped in at the first whisper, investigated it, found the "guilty" party/ies (assuming the whisper was true), disciplined them (which should have meant a Court-Martial), stopped it from happening again & reported it up the ladder, where it would have gone to the very top.

You cannot tell me that this has been going on for "several" years, & not one officer at Platoon / Troop  or Company / Squadron level was aware of it, or had even the faintest inkling that there was a problem occurring? (& when dealing with 2 Battalions over several years, you are talking about 100 - 200 officers either totally in the dark, or totally incompetent?)

Actually, it's quite a reasonable paying job. And you have always paid for food and lodgings, or Rations & Quarters, as it is called.

Not if you look at it on an hourly basis. Certainly some members work a day job but at the pointy end, it’s  a 24/7 job.

Yes... I agree with that.. Has always been there. Don't have problems with the procedure...
I have problems with the fact that 'they' were witness or knew of the 'incident and were found of "conduct unbecoming" which automatically infers that all members
mentioned in 'The Report' are in fact, guilty. Without the due course of a trial. Which of course, would constitute a 'war crimes trial'.

The thing that triggered me is that the media as usual seized on the report, (which is heavily reacted and therefore does not give all the information for one to form
an informed opinion) and released in to the public purely to gain media sales, (or how ever they make money).

The thought comes to mind that maybe the media staff primarily consist of Millenniums who personally have not even experienced a Cracker Night in there life time but are
here pushing this ghastly news to the innocent public without any back ground knowledge. 

So, here we have the likes of Ben Robert Smith selling all his life time gains to instigate legal proceedings. Not to fund a trial but to procure exoneration from a media slander action.. No matter the outcome, his reputation is tarnished for the rest of his life...

And, make no mistake, other names with be 'leaked' out in dribs and drabs to keep the public interest..

Long long time ago, I can still remember when you entered the military they became your family,, You were clothed, feed, had a nice warm bed (well sometimes), nurtured and trained. And if you had a problem the military looked after you.It was the true meaning of Brotherhood..... Now it's a relatively low paying job (based on the hours), you pay for your food and lodgings. You pay for your replacement equipment. You can no longer rely on any one other then the brother standing beside you. Your orders come people that you no longer have personal contact. Your job has become harder and more confusing and more is expected from the individual. But, if you suffer injury, it's just a case of "theres the door, don't let it hit you on the arse on the way out"..   

That's it,, Rant over..
