I say yes, wife says no. Our marriage is resting on this
Let's set the way-back machine to circa 2006...a young SPC (P) Kytulu is getting ready to PCS from Korea to Ft. Bragg, and is in the process of clearing post. Now, back in the wild west days of yore, clearing post was an exercise in frustration. There was no such thing as a "One Stop" or an "In-processing Center"...you had to trek all over post to various offices and buildings in order to in or out-process. Never been to the post Library? Doesn't matter, you still have to get your form signed or stamped. On Camp Humphreys, back in the day, lower Enlisted were not allowed to drive, so it is Leather Personnel Carriers or taxicabs to get around unless you can bum a ride from someone who is allowed to drive.
To complicate matters, my unit was in the field during this process, and I had not yet received my unit clearing papers from S1. So, I was clearing what I could with the post clearing papers. It was getting down to crunch time, and the Rear-D NCOIC (SFC that later became my 1SG after I PCSd to Campbell almost 5 years later) had to call the S1 and chew their collective asses because I did not have my papers. After that was taken care of, I was able to pick up my clearing papers the next morning.
Now, one of the places that I had to clear was the Personnel Services Battalion, or PSB. Since I was promotable, I also had to obtain a sealed copy of my promotion packet to turn in to my next unit...and this is where the fun begins. When I went to clear, they could not find my packet, and I was instructed to go to my S1 and have them take the packet to PSB for processing. So, I walk across the street to S1 and hit up the SPC at the desk. After I explained what PSB had told me, she asked when I had gone to the board. When I replied with "October", she says "ooooohhhh....you're one of THOSE!"...now, keep in mind that it was now February...three months AFTER I went to the board.
Me: "What do you mean..."one of those?!"
Her: "There was an issue with the packets from that board."
Me: "well, that explains why I was not on the last two C10 rosters."
(my 1SG was aware of the C10 issue, and working the issue, but they were in the field, so...)
She then turns to a HUGE stack of folders, thumbs through it, finds my name, and pulls out my board packet. When she opened it up, the only thing in it was the board results. No copies of my points worksheet...no copies of my college transcripts, awards, nothing. Fortunately, the board results were still there, and all I ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
What does this mean lol. And how much more is there to go? I asked my recruiter and I didn’t get any replies.
Edit: Thank you to everyone who responded. I got more than enough information and am pumped to join ( Unless paper work is involved lol)
I am making an app where I am setting up a socket with UdpClient. I set the socket to Dgram and udp, I set the socket to reuse address and I bind to my NIC's IP with the desired port.
However I seem to be unable to receive any data until I view the traffic with wireshark. At that point, i see the traffic spilling on. As soon as I stop capturing in wireshark, the data stops in my app.
How does one have to do with another? And how do I just get my app to just work. Please help!
I've seen this behavior on British TV all my life, particularly in media set in the 1960s through 1980s. People getting paid in cash, in a little manila envelope.
As far as I know, people stopped doing that in the USA in the 1920s, if not sooner. People have been getting paid with checks (cheques, I know) for at least the entirety of my parents' and grandparents' lives.
People getting paid with envelopes of cash look like criminals. They appear as if they're being paid under the table for some kind of shady shit. Certainly, nobody is paid in cash for totally legal, non-shady employment in 2021.
Edit: The only exceptions would be businesses that deal in some kind of retail work, or a very specific one-customer-at-a-time service job, like at tattoo artist. People who get paid by their employers do not get envelopes of cash.
Is it still happening in the British Isles, though? If not, when did it stop?
Edit: thank you, kind strangers for my first ever awards!
Due to Trump Administration efforts the UPU rates are going up, especially for items going to the US. This means Japan Post's rates are also going to go up. To the US rates will nearly double for some categories, and the US will become the most expensive destination in the world*. Smaller, lighter items are impacted especially hard due to UPU "per item" cost increases.
So far the increases only impact Small Packet items but this is because the increases for other postal categories are still under negotiation within the UPU. From the FAQ, "Currently, the delivery charges for ordinary mail items (letters, postcards, printed matter and so on), excluding small packets, are being discussed by the UPU. We are planning to review our postage rates for these items based on the outcome of that discussion."
* Looking at the new rate list again it is still more expensive to ship heavier small packet items to Africa or South America. For lighter items though the US is more expensive by a huge amount. I suspect this will tank a lot of online sellers in Japan. Only the big companies that can afford to keep stock in US Amazon warehouses will survive.
The greatest problem when looking for implementations of network packet sniffers in Python 3 is that nearly all of them rely heavily in third-party libraries like Scapy or kamene that, though very convenient, may not be at hand when an ethical hacking engagement has to take place in restrictive environments.
For this reason I implemented this basic packet sniffer using just built-in libraries and fully compatible with Python 3.x. It is implemented in OOP, leverages libraries like ctypes, socket, argparse and others and relies on the use of abstract base classes, inheritance, special methods, decorators and design patterns (command, observer and template). We also employ some manipulation of binary and hexadecimal values that are formatted for the use on raw sockets.
This tool is part of an upcoming (though not nearly ready) series of video tutorials I plan to launch some time in the next year. It might be a rather long course given how much we'd need to cover about all the underlying networking and programming topics.
It's available on GitHub. Use wisely.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
I live in Dubai and have a choice of 2 ISP and both have a really bad rep here. I have a download of 150mb+ upload around 80mb however I have really bad buffering issues and the gaming experience is awful.
After some research I starting looking into packet loss, here are my results [Imgur](https://i.imgur.com/b5CroqE.png)
my setup is in a apartment, fiber to ISP modem > Linksys Velop ISP supplied router
I have run pingplotter wired and wireless with similar results.
Can anyone suggest anything I can do to help reduce packet loss?
when I connect to a game on my own I have really bad lag but when I connect with a friend who is hosing to a UK server it runs smooth. I also experience lots of buffering on Netflix and Youtube
