agreed and very true on that point, however it'd be nice to see how many guys ahead of you in category/base are older/younger and you could make somewhat of a total wild ass guess for bidding/qol...ect.
The last Delta-S guy hired in July 2001 was number 11262 of 12434 on the combined list when it was published. He was bracketed by a couple of DAL-N guys that were hired in July 2000. The Last DAL-N guy hired in July 2001 was number 11916. Everyone's number has dropped by 30-40ish numbers since then.
