The signups for intoabar
end Sunday night. It's a pretty low-stress ficathon, with the only real issue being what character you get paired up with from one of your fandoms. Minimum is 500 words, so very doable.
Started watching Visionaries last night on YouTube, since this seems to be the last of the 80s stuff I enjoy that has not been released. We have Youtube access on the nightshift, which is nice.
The people I've been helping study for the board did well on the mock board, so they'll be going to the big promotion board on Tuesday. We have one person out of this month's crop who did badly, so maybe now he will listen. While he's a smart (very smart, probably too smart for the Army) guy, he has a tendency to come across as slightly supercilious/condescending and that's bad when you're only an E-4. He's also older than the average E-4 and I don't think that helps. However, what sunk him on the board was the fact that once he makes a mistake, he crumbles because he can't just roll past it. That is fatal on the board.
And, can't remember if I mentioned it, but my board for consideration for promotion to E-8 (which would be a very big step and likely my last promotion) has been pushed back to December 3 due to the shutdown after-effects, rather than meeting in November. This means that I likely will not know the results before February, when I am either coming home on leave or coming home to stay. Also, this means I will be waiting on the results of my application to the National Intelligence University (they come out on April 1) and my board results during the same time. March could be a snappy month.
