That's because its not Combat training it's Compat. training, as in compatibility... You're actually going to work for eHarmony.com with their 29 dimensions of compatibility!

I'm not sure what you guys mean by '' doesn't load on firefox ". When I click on the website that I posted up top.... I get an intro page.... blue with some theme music, then I click on skip. Next page, which must be the main page, has a retired army general speaking in a video intro.
Checked the title and the left hand column with list of video's including the off-road certification video.... " initial reason for posting" and cannot find one word combat with the letter P in it.
BTW, don't see the word combat in the title at all!

------ Follow up post added February 27th, 2010 11:52 PM ------

Found it, it was weird the first time I thumbnailed it was spelled correct, then I hit it again and found the wrong spelling came up..... I thought you guys meant on the main page.
Surely, your not going to hold that against them! Probably wasn't even their fault!

Why are we even listening to what a "Registered User" has to say?


LOL

Like we could make that up! The intro loads in FF, but when you skip, the next page doesn't render and you hear the audio. Anyhoo, dunno why I care enough to comment - and yeah, he's lucky to be a user.

Wow, you guys are rough!

# 1. I didn't mean to offend anybody! I don't think I ever posted anything offensive in this thread or the others that offended anybody as offensive as " why are we listening to a registered user ".

# 2. I've read some messages you post to each other that are way worse!

# 3. Something tells me this doesn't even have anything to do with the typo on the webpage that I posted!

# 4. When I realized the same thing about, " registered user ". That's when I posted my question about '' Do I have to pay a membership fee to be considered a member? " That's when I got the wise ass comments like " HorseBoy doesn't even have a Land Rover and he's a member ".

# 5. You have the BALLS to ask why are you entertaining this thread or why are you listening to a " registered user, but no one has had the BALLS to tell me why I'm a " registered user ".

# 6. At this point, I still do not know if I have done something wrong! Thought maybe because I don't own a D-90, but I said to myself these guys couldn't be that unsophisticated! I thought it was another place where I could share a common interest " LAND ROVERS ".

# 7. Maybe, because you don't know me from a hole in the wall..... or maybe you know something I don't!

# 8. I am in a more local club " Rovesrclub " I'm sure some of you know some members there, I've had the opprtunity at three events to meet people there. I hope I didn't offend someone there as well!

# 9. I have a couple of kids, busy with work! So I try to find some time for this, and meet some people with my same interest. I do enough BABY SITTING here at home, so I'm not going to BABY SIT anybody here!

# 10. If you don't want to read what I have to say just be a MAN about it and say so. Last thing I want to do is waste anybodys time,.... especially mine!!

Dude, relax. No-one has found this thread or anything you have said offensive. All I saw (and participated in) was some friendly ribbing. I guess we should have put a few smileys in our posts.

Chris already explained he doesn't know why your title showed up as 'Registered User' and thought he had fixed it. It wasn't fixed, and we ribbed you a bit more about it, nothing more nothing less. I made it 'Special User' now. More fun. Don't read into it. If you are truly offended, or want it to say something else, just let me know.

As far as this thread goes, I was just saying I don't know why I care enough about this stupid gryphon security website issue to make another comment about it, other than to rib you after changing your title. Maybe I should have done it in the other thread but thought it would be funnier here, sorry.

Anyhow sorry this set you off. If I didn't think you'd fly off the handle, i'd have made it 'Sensitive User' this time.

Companies like this are such a load of shit I can't believe they are permitted to operate. This is nothing more than Disaster Capitalism at it's finest under the guise of Homeland Security. Give it another year or two and they'll have you convinced that your neighbor is the enemy. Companies like this are the enemy.

Yeah, sorry bro. I was just kidding (hence the LOL = Laugh Out Loud). Charles was right; was just making fun of the Registered User issue you're having.

Open the site using Internet Explorer, not FireFox... Then you will find the typo.

Charles,
You or Scott didn't set me off, I truly thought you guys were telling me to F.... off!

At first I couldn't find the typo, I eventually found it..... and I had no idea what the heck Fire fox was, I realize now what it is. The rest of the website does come up on Int. Expl.

BTW, I didn't ask anybody to change anything on my status, I was just curious as to why it was that way. I just wasn't sure if maybe there was a fee or not. I would've payed, no problem!

As long as " SPECIAL " doesn't mean; as in short yellow school bus special....

Its all good
