R2S App CAC Use

Making Recruiting Great Again
Team,

Now that I’m no longer in recruiting... meaning no work cell or laptop I’m trying to find means to checking my NMCI on the go. I’ve heard about the R2S (Ready2Serve) app where you can check NMCI on your cell phone or tablet.

My question/s is what CAC reader do you use for it? And any other suggestions/tips about R2S? Thank you!

Recommend using with an iPad. Smaller screen will have render/scaling issues.
Crisis averted! I was FINALLY able to get NMCI webmail on my Macbook. Thanks again.

On the tech subject. Are NSIPs and nmci as fragile as they have been the last month or so? It seems they are "down" a lot

The fact that we're even talking about systems like that being "down" in 2019 is fucking asinine. Server clusters and the cloud are a thing, and not a new one, either. I work for a Fortune 500 company, and if I regularly brought our systems down even to install an update, I'd be polishing up my resume. In the private sector, people work weekends and overnights when shit goes down in production.

Navy IT has and always will suck. Several impediments:
  • The GS and SES (PhD required... please...) pay scales suck, which makes it difficult to attract and to retain requisite talent
    • What you end up with are a pool of people who have a CISSP or related, and very little work experience. Why? Because, all you need for many security/IT govvie jobs is a certification. And, what do these people do? They stay forever and stagnate because they are unemployable in the private sector
    • You could literally be a goat herder with a clearance and get a govvie IT job if you have a CISSP
  • Military owned and contractor operated networks and systems
  • IT rate training sucks and does not teach people how to troubleshoot. Typical Navy issue of wanting to pump out more widgets: it just lowers the bar
  • A multitude of ignorant, aging Navy civilians who are in the IT workforce who are not qualified
    • Example: In sorting out a DFAS issue (SGLI payments), I eventually spoke with someone who haD been there for 30+ years. The technical skills of this person were abysmal given the need. The person's predecessor (a 35 year DFAS employee) passed away and took all institutional knowledge to the grave (ie, the person did not document or write anything down because, you know, job security)
