Anyone have any luck yet? Wondering how many more hours I should sit here hitting reload...
Called CT Power & Light
Googled "USCGA Power Outage" and got several hits. Seems they often have problems keeping the lights on, but not today. Called CT Light & Power. No outages in New London today. Something else must be up.
No luck here, MMMom. I've got stuff to do but I don't want to go too far from the computer!
Ditto... DS is working a double today or I would make him do it!
There is a planned power outage going on today at the Academy from 0600 to 1600. Apparently to do with installation of a new chiller so that all of Chase Hall will eventually be air-conditioned.
And my DD is away at camp. I think they plan it so we have to do the menial things for them!
I keep asking mine how much being his personal assistant pays?
So the USCGA plans to unplug the campus and depower the servers on the same day they open Cadet for a Day reservations? Several adjectives spring to mind. "Considerate" isn't one of them. We've got hundreds of students and parents out there recreating the first season of LOST -- typing in the magic number and hitting the button for no apparent reason. Sorry for the chippy attitude, but I'm now into hour 14.
No need to apologize. I am plenty annoyed, and if I got no sleep last night I would be Li. Vid.
USCGA Power Outage
There was a planned power outage at USCGA from 0600 until 1600 today AND the weather is to get severe here later this afternoon (it is thundering as I type).
If your S/D attended AIM, and protocol is the same for this coming year's cycle for the Class of 2017, AIMsters will not be given priority for CFAD over those who were qualified and not picked up in this year's lottery.
There are other chances to visit the Academy throughout the school year, especially during the fall semester; please keep an eye on the candidate portal for upcoming events such as STEM.
Please try not to be so hard or consider USCGA inconsiderate; they are only trying to better the physical facilities for current cadets and also for those in the future. Sometimes, like building a home, there are blips in timing. This is the first taste of Semper Gumby and, at times, ole Gumby can be both frustrating and aggravating.
On the bright side... I've caught up on 6 episodes of Mad Men on Netflix while I've been waiting.
If I remember correctly from reading the calendar last night (and I can't confirm this because the website is down), it says in bold letters that AIM attendees are not eligible for CFAD.
I wish I thought of watching something, I am a big fan of The Closer. I have played a lot of Scrabble today instead. Who knew "xi" was a word?
Hopefully we'll be on soon!
Note the words in red
XU is also a word... I play alot of Words with Friends. I'm queen of the 2 letter word. Still waiting...
Okay. It is 1612 hours and I am still playing Scrabble.
Anyone have any luck yet?
Not yet... on episode 7.
Any luck yet?
None here... I think this is a test to weed out the folks who are REALLY serious about it.
Just managed to finally get onto their site. But I haven't found anything for the signups.
Same here... got in, can see the dates and click on them and then it says registration will open August 5th. UGH.
