Greetings Marine!

The STARFLEET Marine Corps is a group affiliated with STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association Inc. The SFMC is considered an office under the Vice Commander, STARFLEET and as such reports to Vice Commander, STARFLEET. Fictionally, the SFMC is part of the Ground Forces that are rarely seen in the episodes but are assumed to be a part of the Naval Fleet of the United Federation of Planets. We are members of STARFLEET. The Corps does not have different requirements for membership, except that a STARFLEET Marine must be a member in good standing in STARFLEET. Although it does have a different name for each rank within the promotional system, and a different organizational structure than the Naval portion of STARFLEET, STARFLEET Marines are regular, dues paying members. Some STARFLEET members are Marine Reserve. These are members who are active in the naval portion of the Fleet AND with the Ground Forces area as well. Occasionally you may find a STARFLEET Marine who is or was active military, but this is not a requirement to be in the Corps.

State of INFOCOM February 2012


Greetings Marines,
Love was in the air several weeks back... that was until I trained my Type 3 Phaser Rifle on Cupid and winged the sucker. Now things are finally getting back to normal here at the Datawarfare Center.

Let's talk about what going on shall we.
Pingdom:
The Pingdom report for December showed us with 3 outages and an uptime of 99.76%. The average response time was 407 ms. These results are better than last month where are response time was higher.
Attention on Deck Extra:
Tom is still prepping his next issue, so if you would like to contribute to the next issue you can reach Tom as emttc911@yahoo.com or you can still send me submissions at michaelj.timko@gmail.com and I will just forward them to Tom.
Staffing:
Additional staffing plans are still in progress and have taken a back seat to other projects. One position that we are definitely seeking is a CGI/PHP Programmer role. If you have these skills or know someone who does, then we need to talk.
Communication Achievement Award:
The COINFOCOM awards the Communications Achievement Award. Have you done or do you know somebody who has done something worthy of this award?
Submissions can be made for designing a website or newsletter, writing a story or song, composing music, making a video. The sky is really the limit.
Some might say my work wasn't good enough or significant enough. To that, I say, you won't know until it gets submited.
Recent Events
As you all know from my previous email, the SFMCA site was hacked. In record time, Laura Victor @ CompOps came through for us (do I see another Naval Unit Citation in her future... hint, hint). I will not go into specifics now, but I can say that the Commandant will be addressing us shortly about the issue.
Well, thats all I got for this month.
Semper Fi.
