Rust!!!! That brought out a laugh the likes pf which I don't experience often. I got really tickled at your daily line up John because its identical to Pat and I. Only the Dr's names are changed to protect........
Its a fact that the future of the msg boards are in peril. I wrote Nick an email a couple of months back in which I said I believed it might be time to evaluate the various functions of the site and see what, if anything, should be salvaged. Its ironic that you wrote this post Randy because I actually sat down at the computer to write Nick today a follow on to the earlier note that this holiday actually illustrated, in spades, that the folks that are working so hard to maintain everything, just might deserve a break.
Anyway, Happy Holidays to everyone especially those that visit the site.
The IUSS-Caesar Alumni Association was formed for the benefit of past and present members of IUSS: military, civilian, government, non-government, spouses and other interested persons. The Charter of the organization is as follows:
To establish a communications network among IUSS personnel.
To establish an informative newsletter providing current location and biographical information (as submitted by members), as well as limited IUSS news.
To perpetuate the interest in undersea surveillance and its history.
To provide a locator resource of and for persons associated with IUSS.
My point is, while some members may enjoy shooting the breeze on the Message Board, there is no requirement to do so, and the lack of posts does not need to spell doom for the Association.
