Friday I scheduled an appointment to take a test at the USCG REC Office in Seattle via the online appointment scheduler. I chose the first appointment I could (tues. 1030). Immediatley a email came through confirming the appointment. Last night, while laying in bed watching Wicked Tuna, another email came in reminding me of the appointment. This was approx 2130 Pacific Time last night. So far, this system seems to work good.
