what is a LUMI Nod?

#1 Post by KiwiBen » Sun 28 Aug, 2005 12:39 pm

I have done a little search and didn't find out exactly what this LUMI nod is.
Does it have something to do with orange shoulder flashes on the nods in foundation?

If this subject has been done to death lampoon me at your leasure...

Cheers all, Benjo

Yes, your right - Thats exactly what a LumiNod is. The idea of the flash is to let people know that you are in your first two weeks and if you are doing something wrong/stupid/dangerous you don't get shouted at tooooo much. :wink:

The problems come on day 15 when you take them off!! No protection so to speak :o

Thank you for the promt reply Stix, was bugging me all weekend!

My only large piece of news to dump into cyberspace is I shall be at CTC on 24th-29th October sweating panting and hopefully passing PRMC.
Anyone on that PRMC send me a PM please!

Regards to all, Benjo

Be gentle with him.

He is going to pay a visit to Chez Flighty after his ordeal. :o

Right Benjo?

L'Artiste and me have a campaign trail planned for you.

If you can survive that, you can survive anything. :D

Lumi nods, not heard that in a while.

Looking back, its a bonus that the orange things are rather big, so that the ruperts and drillies can see from a distance that you are a newbie!!!

First drill always seems to appear from nowhere. :oops:
yours aye

Stix, cheers mate I shall avoid a ride with you like the plague :lol:

And yes, I have to be intact at the end so I can help Jayne and Artist ravage the town for a night or three, nothing too exciting of course :roll: :wink:
