I am in the army now...

Well only a couple of hours left until I finally move in.
6 weeks, oh boy, I hope it won't suck as much as I expect it to suck.

In other news I finally got my new notebook (Acer Aspire 5652AWLMi) and a new mobilephone Samsung SGH X680, and so far I am quite happy with both. I can finally start to efficiently develop and code again.
I just hope that I will get some time for that stuff over there (I need to move into another federal state for the 6 weeks of my basic training).

I plan to write some sort of army diary/blog tho in order to vent from all the shit that will most likely happen to me. I'll keep you informed on that matter tho.
I actually have no idea if theres some kind of internet connection available over there so the diary entries might be posted in batches.

After the 6 weeks stuff will move along faster again since the rest of my army life works out just like a job or school (go there in the morning and go home at around 16:00 or so).

Again I would like to thank everyone for supporting the game and the team even in these times where progress isn't as fast as it used to be, but you know real life catches on at some point :)

See you all soon (hopefully)

Heya all,

Short msg from recruit Ghostface.
Well after all its not as bad as I expected. They shortened the time from 6 weeks to 3 1/2 (I am back august the 25th now).
We don't have any war simulation crap going, we do not need to paint our faces and lie in dirt for hours. Our chiefs are pretty friendly too.

I got my gun wednesday (Stg 77 / Steyr Aug), and we are going to fire it with real ammunition next week.
Sadly theres not much time for coding there as I mostly get out and drunk during the short free time we have (but remember that I am back for good over 2 weeks earlier).

I am going to write some more stuff in a diary/blog kind of way, but I haven't got the time to do so yet, so I just wanted to give you a brief update about whats going on.

To sum up, what we do all day is mostly:
- exercising (turn left, turn right, etc.)
- eating
- sleeping
- waiting for orders
- cleaning our room (2x a day)
- weapon stuff
- theoretic stuff
- getting drunk and playing dart in the evening

Not that bad, and I must say that I pretty much catched the best barracks in whole austria.

Apart from the fact that its a gun intended to kill human beings, yeah.
It's an awesome gun, very well made and easy to use.
