So, the military/LEO card doesn't hold much water.



Not any sort of card, you asked a question, I replied and furhered added some validation from those that work in that field - all of which their contact details I could supply if required (which obviously its not). Still, even without that, my last sentence is the main thing anyway - you asked "would I try them for real2 - I replied yes.. because I already have done!

BTW, I'm not sure if anyone is going to video the upcoming shodan test. If they do I'll try to get ahold of some of the footage. I myself do not have a camcorder.



Look forward to it.. though why wait and see, why not ensure someone does film it! Not that I'd probibly pass judgement on it, as Im not into acting like that (picking out faults etc.), but would be interested to see it none the less.

Bottom line, you post a video online, expect to get good and bad reviews from the extremist nut jobs on both sides. Very rarely will someone post a response to a thread like this to say that your video was an average or decent performance. 95 times out of 100 you will get "That sucked" or "That was the greatest thing ever".

If the video you posted (and I have not watched it for the record) is representative of a passing grade then why respond further to the nut job that wants to bring it down. Just say "thanks for your opinion" and move on.

By falling into his trap, you make yourself seem like just as big of a nut case as the guy you are arguing with.

Just don't worry about it and keep posting the stuff it is interesting to watch.

If people make a comment then ask yourself if it truly has merrit. If so make adjustments accordingly for the betterment of your program if it does not have merrit then ignore it and move forward.

As long as you tkd types stick together, everything will be ok. Don't let anyone make criticisms. If they do then write them off as a nut job.

We? As I recall, you don't do anything bro.

However, I do give up in a sense. After rereading my comments I think I was less than constructive in my criticism and would like to publically apologize to StuartA.

You can also stand at the front of a class of 5 and 6 year olds wearing those posh heavy cotton doboks that are more like a pair of warm pjs and bark orders because you've been there and done that.
