  1. The Fleet Air Arm's most decorated pilot died today, aged 97. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30039300
  2. Very true! The Blue team scores on Wednesdays and Saturdays were in fact pretty much the same (7 or 8 points) right up until the last Saturday (10 points), so an extra S! for those Wednesday pilots who kept the flag flying. S! Maus
  3. We talked von Wrecker through the Recovery process last night; it didn't seem to fix the problem at the time, but if he was able to get on WG today, maybe something else has fixed itself (at least for now) ...
  4. As I said last night, the whole thing is a complete mystery to me -- not least because it's so inconsistent! The problem's there one day, gone the next, then comes back again, etc. etc. ... I do hope that someone with more knowledge than I have about servers and connections and so on can get to the bottom of it!
  5. Great, thanks for the clarification!
  6. I thought the Entente weren't allowed twin front guns on the DH4, only on the rear, since the DFW doesn't have the front option? Just checking for clarification! S! Maus
  7. My cat has even been responsible for the latter on occasion ... when she jumps up in my lap, I sometimes let her just sit there if there's no action imminent, knowing that if I toss her back to the floor, she'll jump right back up. Usually she just sits quietly and nestles her face into the crook of my elbow, but there have been times when she's been unable to resist suddenly bumping her head against my joystick hand, sometimes pressing my thumb against the button which I have mapped for overwing guns (WWI) or cannon (WWII). So if you're flying on my wing and I suddenly start firing at nothing, without even calling out that I've seen a bandit, that may well be the reason.
  8. I've just got an old $20-ish Logitech headset, 1/8" connectors rather than USB (looks like the 120 model, here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-980447-0914-PC-Headset-120/dp/B000FKNZR0) and it's great. Really good sound, and I gather from others that my voice is clear on the mic, so unless you're a real audiophile and want to spend more money, that's all you need! I always use push-to-talk rather than voice activation, and given the amount of extraneous noise which sometimes plagues our comms, I urge everyone to do the same. S! Maus
  9. Pilots may be interested in this approach plate, if you haven't already seen it! It looks like it's a couple of years old, so be sure to update if you're planning a flight ... S! Maus
  10. The Channel map is one of the items on sale -- with the 60% off, the sale price for the map is only $3.59!
  11. A memorable scene in 'The Battle of Britain' (Galland served as an advisor on the film, and the character of 'Falke' is based on him):
  12. Thank you so much! It was sad to end such a streak, but the award goes some way to alleviate the disappointment ... and now I can finally get my six wounds attended to ... S! Maus
