July 1995.  Luke AFB, Arizona.

I went up in an F-16D for an hour flight north of Phoenix (Flagstaff/Sedona area) while I was a reservist.  

I will NEVER be intimidated by a rollercoaster again..mere child's play now.  biggrin

I won't see it until at least a week from Monday because I live in England.  It'll take at least that long for it to arrive in the mail.  Do you have any inkling how hard it'll be listening to you all rave about the game???  *sigh*   :cry:

You can look at it this way - you have to do 30 in 60 seconds or somesuch right?  Once you are past basic, you never have to do them again.  Can you tough it out or does it hurt that badly?


Actually, he will.  The new AF Fitness Program requires a pushup, situp, and 1.5 mile run as an annual requirement.  Failure to achieve a passing score will land the individual in remedial fitness training programs.  Subsequent retests will follow, and 4 consecutive failures will result in dismissal from the USAF.

I'd like to give the new Over Flanders Fields mod a whirl, but need the base program.

I've been itching for anything resembling a WWI flight sim since the days of RBII/RB3D.


If you've got one you can part with, PM me with what you'd need in the way of compensation...thanks in advance!

Merry Christmas from southeast England!
500  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ho, ho, ho... on: December 24, 2005, 07:13:45 PM
...or what really happened to OO.  slywink

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a hard drive was whirring, nor clicking of mouse;
The PC's were unplugged from the network with care,
In hopes that a new version soon would be there;

The users were safe at home in their beds,
While screenshots of a new interface danced in their heads;
And the sys admin in his jeans, and I in my suede,
Had just hunkered down for a version upgrade,

When from the hard drive there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the seat to see what was the matter.
It clanged and it ground and smoke it did spew
And I swore I could smell the NIC frying too.

I reached for the keyboard and those magic three keys
But not in time could I get to "CTRL-ALT-DELETE"
The hard drive kept charging like some renegade
And I knew we were at the mercy of this version upgrade.

So outside I went for a nicotine binge
Knowing my job on this upgrade did hinge!
The vendor had promised this software would work!
But now where was he? At home, like a jerk!

The moon shone bright on the two cars in the lot
Just mine and the sys admin's, that sorry sot.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
A man in a VeeDub, smiling from ear to ear.

In his bag he carried books of languages of yore,
Pascal, Fortran, Cobol, Basic and more.
With a pocket protector and a shirt that was untucked,
I knew my problems were solved; I was no longer in trouble.

Yes I knew in an instant tho I could hardly speak,
I had been blessed by a visit from old St. Geek.
His clothes were unkempt; his shoes could have been cleaner,
But I was just happy to see his calm demeanor.

I stood there staring like a stop for the door
When he snapped his fingers and said, "Quick! To the raised floor!"
So I led the way down the halls to the IT server room
I led him in the door and not a moment too soon.

He jumped to the console and had nary a query,
The sys admin was nervous but I said, "Don't be leery,"
"This man is exactly the resource we seek,"
"This man is none other than old St. Geek!"

With sweat from his brow and fingers that blazed,
He tickled the keyboard o'er the floor that was raised.
He got to a dialog where I thought he should click "OK"
But he knew the renegade software would say, "No Way"

With skill and aplomb he rescued our server,
He answered each prompt with incredible fervor.
The noise from the hard drive began to slowly subside,
And I could tell he'd be successful in turning the tide.

The server stopped groaning, and clanking and clinking
Not long after that the right lights were blinking.
He glanced at us over his shoulder, never missing a command,
And with a wink and a nod, said, "Who's your Geek, man?"

He cleaned up the evidence of our upgrade gone awry,
And I knew in the morning the CIO would not cry.
My job would be spared and I am eternally glad,
For old St. Geek and the bag of tricks that he had.

He returned to his VeeDub and opened the moon roof
And 'ere we could snap a picture to claim as our proof
He punched it and laid rubber but I did hear him say,
“Happy Holidays to all, and to all, safe upgrades!”

I just tried to change my avatar.  It is of course within the specifications listed.

If I try to upload it from my rig, I get the following:

If I try to upload it from a URL, it says that it was successfully updated, but no avatar displays.

Any brilliant ideas? smile
