A month long absence from this site...one wonders what precipitated such a lull.
Not that nothing interesting has happened in the intervening month.
There was the Army Half Marathon run, which I did not attend due to medical status, but still had to go to the Padang at the unearthly hour of 5am.
The next week was a week of thankless jobs involving movement of objects from place to place. The one consolation was the view of DB from without, brought in part by the shifting of flowerpots. No NSF in his right mind would want to view DB from within.
The shifting of objects was in preparation of IKC2 week, whereby the army showcased equipment and systems to do with Integrated Knowledge based Command and Control, shortened to IKC2. Pundits have dubbed it I Kena Concussed 2(too). Upon a closer look at the arcane, user unfriendly systems, one finds their point rather valid.
IKC2 week is unforgiving to anyone who happened to be at Stagmont camp during that time, and NSF unit men bear the brunt of this unforgivingness. Anyone not involved in presenting said equipment and systems will be given a rather menial task to do, such as guiding buses and marshalling. One could argue that such tasks are essential to the proper operation of the exhibition, but that person in question obviously has not done any such jobs.
In accordance with the as yet unproven law of averages, the hectic weeks before will be balanced with this week and next week being essentially weeks of off and leave. More days at home or outside are always helpful the the stressed, underperforming NSF.
