    To anyone wondering what the life of a deck cadet is like this is an interesting reading:

    http://mndeckcadet.blogspot.com

    Great blog with many insights, although from a few years ago, it goes from 2006 to 2009 covering the whole catedship experience. I hope it hasn't already been posted somewhere the search function returned nothing.

    It is a good blog, I was sad that he never posts any more, we don't know who he is I do note though, looking the comments on the last post that he attracted the attention of the "Old Salts" from The Other Place, which is enough to put anyone off! (They latched onto my blog at one point and I got a little bit narked off!) It's not clear if he qualified... anyone know?

    We have several blogs on our blogroll from current cadets and serving officers though, all of which are interesting and informative. If he was to start posting again we'd be delighted to add it to our list.

      Salt, It was just the one person my dear! I actually think he's popped his cloggs, been sectioned or is finally bored of having convo's with himself as he hasn't posted in a while...
      I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        I had a little read on that site a while back, and I'm pretty sure the two basket cases, were in fact just one person. Or two very warped people operating in tandem.

          Which ever the case.

          It's a good thing that they do not post on here.



          Why?

          The format of their posts annoy the living testicles out of me.

          It seems they might have died.

          Or they have gone into silent mode; and S4 is about to be taken hostage.

          I might start posting like this from now on?

          Perhaps...

                Does anyone even still post at the 'other place'? I remember when I did a blog that they latched on as well, it got to the point I was accused of being a drug addict due to my writing style. Then one of them complained to my sponsor about a blog I did on a transit of piracy area, and I had to take it down or get fired. Nice people over there.

                      It seems that you have in fact opened the box.

                      Someone was bound to do it.

                      Do not feel bad for one second, oh no.

                      Just move on with your life.

                      Much like the box that belonged to Erwin Schr?dinger.

                      The cat was already dead?

                      Do not feel bad.

                          Ahh that was YOU! I liked your blog, (get a new one!) And no, no-one posts at The Other Place. It is Dead To Us. (And Everyone Else apparently...)
