thanx guys for pointing it out, i've just always assumed it would be [email protected], so i never looked into it...although @pilot.pprune sounds a little better, since most people haven't a clue about pprune (thank God), it still sounds something like "captain underpants" i'm sure we've all read about in preschool....

so not to sneeze on it, but any other domains out there?

just figured it'd look nice on a resume to have and aviation email address....

:hmm: That is a rather unwise reply if I may say so :E - especially as The Boss has been kind enough to provide you with a shortcut to registering.:ooh: :uhoh: :\

It is altogether possible that those reading your CV will be familiar with PPRuNe; if not, are you sure you want to work for them?:ooh:

And like DX Wombat says - The Boss Himself has just given you a link to the free email service he offers on his free site, and your response, whether intentional or not, sounds a bit like "No thanks, I'm looking for something way cooler for my Resume, like [email protected] .... y'know?

I mean, most people haven't a clue about pprune (thank God),

...how do you think that sounds?:confused:

Another option is to just register your own domain name, gives you an email addy for life and if your keen you can get hosting & set up a web site for under $100 a year.

I'm glad Blue Wolf put it so well. I would hate to have added to my ever-increasing status as a grumpy old bastard. :O

Mr natedog74, you in fact seem to be the only person who doesn't have a clur about PPRuNe

Click this link (http://www.pprune.org/demoAdStats.php) to see that (thank god) not many people know about PPRuNe. :rolleyes:

Gawd, Boss ... that's hardly anyone! natedog74 would be better off going to a more popular site wouldn't he?

:rolleyes:

well, thanx anyway....
the 'people' i referred to were quite a few pilots here stateside i talked to that have never heard of it ...

and as for the prospective employer, good point, although the flipside might be that from their perspective, that might not even be such a good thing, given the sometimes subversionist (from THEIR p-o-v, lest i should inspire another slew of vindictive posts...:) nature (management sucks, et al) of some posts....

i'd much rather exude air of somebody that wouldn't think of complaining at whatever they try to ram down my throat, providing i'm fortunate ebough to get the job in the first place...

guess i'll stick to yahoo:hmm:

Me thinks if you've got an anyway decent cv, whatever your email address is won't mean squat.
