  • 10 Days to go

    Right then Rabies and Mentlegen, with just 10 days till lift off.....

    a) Who has suddenly developed a cold
    b) Who's creating a map of the world in their underwear (anxious cartography)
    c) Who feels in the slightest bit prepared
    d) Any other business

    I'm certainly climbing the walls at the mo!!!!

              Having to go on a bit of a shopping trip today (I detest this). Bit of a rush now as I'm off to the Great Dorset Steam Fair in 5 days. leaving me 1 day afterwards to fully pack and recover.

                I'm guessing the common casio one like this, at least that's what I'm taking anyway:

                  I'm all good except for the pilot shirts - My neck and chest size doesn't seem to match the MN standard.

                  Just found out that the local dry cleaners can take them in a bit at the back, problem solved.

                  I need to look good for the joining photo on the 1st, I'm going to appear in the Trinity House magazine... as a yeoman.

                    By programmable I assume its one that you cannot program to remember formulae, plot graphs or tables. Im taking the casio stylee one.

                      I prefer this one...
                      http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX-115-MS ... 77&sr=1-35

                      (this looks similar: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX-85-ES- ... B000A1LNP0)

                      The way you have to type in fractions on that newer Casio one is so annoying.
                      ..,never really sussed out how to work the integration button on this one though.

                      it does look slightly easier on this one:
                      http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX991ES-F ... p_office_2

                      In exams you get slightly simpler ones. Here's an example approved list:

                      Do we need to split/amend this into a "Calculator thread"?!

                        You really shouldn't worry too much.

                        The only thing I would worry about now is the food and the Cadet Administrators. Also the unhelpfulness of Reception and Registry. Whatever you do.... don't get on the wrong side of reception.

                        The first week was just getting into the swing of things, you never know - you may go paintballing!

                        Just don't forget to turn up for register every morning for the first month....

                          i got the next model up... it's very good apparently - does complex calculations quickly...
