  1. I've struggled with my mental health at many points in my life, so I can't stress enough how important it is to have someone to talk to about your problems. My sister was the one gave me the number to my therapist. Thankfully I managed to get back on my feet and now I'm a (mostly) functional human being again. If it wasn't for the help I'd received things could've turned out very differently. Thanks for raising awareness and offering your time @Snaggle. Sometimes knowing that there's someone out there who's willing to listen can make all the difference.
  2. There's a 109 for sale in Germany. Seems fairly reasonably priced, maybe we should start a GoFundMe campaign? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Messerschmitt-BF-109-G6-Project/293835781996?mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&siteid=0&campid=5337797875&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1
  3. That wasn't an actual quote, I don't have a wife (yet)... Should've cleared that up, sorry. I feel your pain though. As a dog person, I'm glad you got one of your own.
  4. Rocco Siffredi approves of this message. Ah, the art of compromise in marriage. "Wife wanted a cat, I wanted a dog, so we compromised and now we have two cats".
  5. I just cycle them periodically. Must be hot at your place in the summer...
  6. Senna vs. Mansell, now that's something I'd happily use as my own desktop background.
  7. I'll drop you a PM, a package is on its way to your inbox.
  8. Every Melodysheep video is a feast for the eyes, ears and soul. This one's my favourite.
  9. Excellent choices, especially the Renault!
  10. McLaren MP4/4, Jordan 191... You have fine taste in both cars and aircraft Lip.
  11. Just found my new desktop background. Quality isn't stellar, but it'll do.
  12. Here's a selection of some of my favourites.
  13. Well, these guys are doing the MB-339, so they're in a good position to make other Italian Air Force aircraft after that's done. If rumours are to be believed, their next project will be the Fiat G.91, but don't quote me on that. Some of their team members have already done some Starfighter stuff for other sims. I'd love to try out the F-104 ASA/M in DCS.
  14. Great idea for a thread, +1. This is what I'm reading right now. The effort that the author put into research is incredible. Can't recommend this enough. https://www.calum-douglas.com/current-book-the-secret-horsepower-race/
  15. HoI4 is also a pain in that regard, when you put the game at speed 5 it feels like speed 3 at game start. The deluge of DLCs is why I've put off purchasing more Paradox titles - IMHO grabbing them in a bundle or a large sale is the way to go. CK3 runs on an improved version of the Clausewitz engine with integrated DirectX 11 support. Not sure if that improves multi-core use or not, but from what I've been told the new games feel quite smooth.
  16. My best friend, who was once an avid CK2 player, says CK3 is one of the best games he's ever played.
  17. I play HoI IV, but I'm a filthy casual who only ever plays offline. Same goes for all the other Paradox titles.
  18. Take care Vogel, get well soon! If the bugger doesn't die within the next few days then I suggest a classic Polish therapeutic method - get a 100 ml shot glass, add about a teaspoon's worth of freshly ground black pepper, pour ice cold Polish vodka over it, lighty stir, drink in one go (with the pepper!) and go to bed immediately afterwards, ideally under several layers of clothing to accelerate perspiration. Works like a charm for nasal congestion! Vodka is also a well-regarded, ahem, internal disinfectant.
  19. Hey @Ludwig, I've been wondering... Is your wife single?
  20. Every single day I do my best to spoil her rotten. I think she likes it.
  21. Despite my nephews' best efforts my mum's Christmas tree is still standing. Apparently my dog likes it, but not as much as the 19th century family heirloom carpet that my mum rolled out for the occasion.
  22. A little change of pace from my usual stuff... Racing around Circuit de la Sarthe. At night. In a monstrous Group 5 Kremer Porsche 935 K3. In a gaggle of Le Mans prototypes. This may well be the most epic automotive video I've ever seen (and I'm not even a Porsche guy!). If you're a petrolhead then it's an absolute must-watch. Our JG1RT members will love this.
  23. Yeah, they've been working on it for a while now. I'm really excited for it, I consider it to be the finest aircraft of WW2.
