xx Group Discussions on Slack

November 06, 2015, 10:17:49 by Mike Bobbitt

I have recently created a group discussion service on Slack (see below if you aren't familiar). This is an early trial and may have some bumps along the road as we go. Members can sign up using this link:

Note however that signup is limited by domain. For now I have added and (just to be progressive) This means of course, you can only sign up automatically with your DND account. However I can also send invites to users via their non-DND email addresses - if I know them. If you don't want to use your DND email for this, please PM me with your personal account and I will send an invite. We will see how this process goes, I anticipate it could be a little labour intensive at first.

What is Slack?

Slack is a collaboration service that provides chat rooms and file sharing across multiple platforms. For more info, see their overview page:

Why sign up?

It's free and you get to chat live with the awesome people here.

From the CAE Info-machine:
CAE today announced that it has closed the acquisition of Bombardier's Military Aviation Training business for C$19.8 million. All the required conditions and regulatory approvals have been obtained and the transaction has been concluded.

Behold ....
The latest on this dude: "Farah Mohamed Shirdon charged in absentia for terrorism-related activity"
A Calgary man who allegedly travelled to fight with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and at one time was rumoured to have been killed in Iraq, has now been charged in absentia in Canada with numerous terrorism-related criminal offences.

The RCMP announced Thursday that 22-year-old Farah Mohamed Shirdon faces six charges under the Criminal Code related to his alleged support of ISIS, which RCMP said began after he left Canada in March 2014.

"Our investigation showed that Shirdon served in a combat role and performed other functions for ISIS such as recruiting, fundraising, encouraging others to commit violence, and spreading propaganda — all designed to enhance the activities of the ISIS," assistant commissioner Marlin DeGrand, the officer in charge of RCMP criminal operations in Alberta, said in a release ....
