Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    But that author is naive as hell if they think that's going to change ever. Its the military, moving around is kind of necessary. What's the alternative?

    There are so many random career-changing opportunities that are one-time occurrences, it's ridiculous. At least some of these are predictable, like AAD/SPEED is every year.

    Then others are like:
    "Do you want to transfer your AFSC forever and with a near 100% selection rate? You have two weeks to decide then we move you next month. GO!"
    or
    "Do you want $10,000 to stay in?"
    or
    "Do you want $50,000 to get out?"
    or
    "We know you had some service time left, but youaretheweakestlinkGOODBYE."
    or
    "Yeahhh, there's only one billet for your AFSC in Germany / Italy / Korea/ insert other rare-amazing place, but our O-6 knows the O-4 at AFPC... tl;dr congrats! Oh, and you move next month. GO!"

    You'll see a lot of them. If you keep putting your name in the hat and competing for them, you'll definitely get one eventually. Just make sure your leadership is on board; do well, explain your story, and they'll help you out. The one I'm going for has the potential to be my dream job and they only got half the number of applicants they needed. Selection is near 100% for this by default, and far less exciting opportunities passed by with far more competition for them.

  • Re: IRAs

    Vanguard is great. I have no problems with their Roth IRA. There's no fee as long as you get your messages via email (and not regular mail). You would need $1,000 to open an IRA though.
