I do find shutting down is a good thing now and then. I could easily have been a hermit. In today's world squelching is indicated.|

Glenmore, the job might be, but the man would make a terrible spy — he’s too much of an engineer. And Mr. Wife’s Uncle Pete watched him grow up — he saw his character unfold.

Tried tv 'headphone' (?analog audio otput?) and it works, but the volume is even worse than the tv speaker. It was a cheap soundbar, but it was about the only one available - shelves were virtually empty, I guess everything is in containers off LB/LA.|

|20220101 08:28||badanov||An amphibious task force from 1st Bn Chernarus 2nd Separate Naval Infantry Brigade was ordered to Torppala in Maksiniemi to clear the town of a separatist force.|
The force was led by two enemy criminal operatives, Yevginiy Samarchenko and Kata Gorbacheva, who went about collecting tribute and arresting people they considered to be politically unreliable.
The separatists arrested three individuals, two females and a male, and were holding them. The naval infantry force was tasked with their release and evacuation.
The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squad to attack from the southeast while command squad attacked from the southwest.
Enemy counterfire was very heavy. 2nd squad suffered heavy losses as the task force closed in. The two operatives were eliminated. The town was cleared.
In the retreat back to the boats, command squad was attacked by a heavy machine gun technical, which killed three squad members. The civilian prisoners were released and evacuated back to the ship.
Losses were high 2nd squad lost seven while command squad lost three.
