Recruit - 1st Class (4/13)



  1. I'm not into web designing so I don't know how these things work. But I know that some sites with both a standard and a mobile version, first provide you their mobile one, but also allow you to permanently disable the mobile version and have the desktop one instead. If I'm right Gizmodo, Youtube and Wikipedia all have it this way. Also on my iPod I'm using an app called Useragent Faker, which tricks websites into thinking that they're actually dealing with a desktop browser and not a mobile device. And so get the standard version of their site. However your site apparently isn't fooled that easily as it simply gives me the mobile version instead. Btw don't let my posts make you think that your work of building a mobile version isn't appreciated. Sometimes I find dealing with a specially designed site without any nonsense going on more comfortable on my iPod, than from behind a PC.
  2. Nice work only the mobile site doesn't seem to display the same up to date news compared to when I visit the normal page on my PC. Also would it be possible to add a link that gives you the option to use the normal version for those with capable devices?
  3. Just found out about this. My best wishes to you Dannik, I hope you're getting well soon man.
  4. I just watched "Last stand in Oman" as I couldn't watch it when it was broadcasted. They should've named that one "certain death", of any of those episodes it would be the last day I would want to witness.
  5. But TJ has a nice big satellite dish on his roof where he can watch UK tv with. I was about to recommend you to try a UK proxy server but this must be better: Special Forces Heroes: Iranian Embassy Special Forces Heroes: Terror In The Skies Special Forces Heroes: Last Stand In Oman Special Forces Heroes: Operation Certain Death Nice final episode, the part with the UK SF recon team is as GR'ish as it can get.
  6. The saying "Never change a winning team" applies to the GR -> GRAW transition (if you agree that the GR series went downhill since GRAW). However, by saying that change per definition is bad you say that GR is perfect and you prevent it from evolving. You should make the distinction between radical change and change as in improvement. GRAW was obviously radical but that doesn't mean GR shouldn't improve as even GR wasn't perfect.
  7. The recent episode surely had the most humour in it. I was laughing out loud when the sas guy was telling about the stun grenade demonstration on the Germans, and seeing them lying around shocked, confused and blinded. Also the part with the airport security looked to came straight out of a movie. Did anyone understand what the reason was that they couldn't bring their own kit with them? That didn't became clear to me from the footage.
  8. I copied that part from the Channel 5 site, I think you're right about that the Germans stormed it. If I'm right the SAS gave them assistance.
  9. Yeah that a lot didn't go to plan kind of surprised me, previous docs always gave me the impression that it all went a lot smoother. I knew about the guy getting stuck on the rope while catching flames. But that that event led to them not using the breaching charge on the door was new to me. Same as the weapon jam the guy had at start. And the discussion they had of using ladders instead of abseiling down. Edit: To ad something to that I remember that in another documentary John MacAleese mentioned he inhaled some CS gas and had to throw up in his mask. With all these things happening against them it really shows how professional these guys where to still get the job done. I found it strange that the original plan was to drive from Regent's park all the way down to Princes Gate in case it all started. I would imagine being as close as possible would be the most logical option. Sim Harris and Trevor Lock where also on previous documentary's, one of the Survival Secrets episodes features a meeting between Harris and John MacAleese.
  10. Thanks for the tip DS, great show. I've seen quite a few docs about operation Nimrod but this one still managed to give away some things I didn't know yet. Next week's episode: "Terror in The Skies. Drama-documentary series that highlights the heroic work of Britain's special forces. This instalment tells the story of the hijacking of Lufthansa Flight 181 in 1977. Using dramatisations and interviews, the film reveals how the Special Air Service stormed the aircraft to take down the terrorists."
  11. Yes I'm playing GR:IT again since quite some time and it feels like coming home after all the graw's and other R&G games. I insist that anyone interested in playing [GR]/GR:IT again to post his gamertag or ad people to their list so we may create a small group of active players again.
  12. Hey Paladin you know me so you know I'm all for a more realistic game. Since GR 2 came out I've spend a lot of time posting on all these forums in the hope to get the old school recon back. Ofcourse I do hope they will change it back just like you but my advise would be to leave "Ghost Recon" for what it is. We are around 5 GR games further and as you can see it's getting worse and worse. Let Ubi keep misusing the good name of "Ghost Recon" which [GR] earned, no point to waste your time anymore. Also my thought is that a game should follow a certain direction instead of a game with arcade and serious gameplay, otherwise it will only lead to a split community. Better hope for a new game like the guys at Blackfoot Studios are making. Personally I think I'm done with the series I even had my doubts when buying GRAW2. Now I have it I've found myself spending more time playing Worms which says enough. Still, good luck.
  13. A while ago there where reports on severall news sites of a supposedly leaked Ubi Soft release list: http://www.xboxic.com/news/413 One of the names on that list was a supposedly new Clancy game named "Tom Clancy's Firehawk". Maybe it's all about that.
