  1. Glad you are home dburnette. Hope all goes well. I am sending this from my Kindle Fire! If you tap in the reply box you should get the keyboard up..you should then be able to type in the box and with a bit of manoeuvring of the screen find the "post" button. This is using the Silk browser. I had some probs myself to start with. Having said which I hope you don't find yourself in a position where you have to use it from hospital again!
  2. Very simply put, we aren't all the same. Some behaviour and forms of communication are acceptable for some and unacceptable for others. We come from different cultures with differing standards of behaviour and different age groups with similarly differing standards of behaviour and individuals within those cultures and age groups will have their own standards. In real life it's easier to avoid people you are likely to clash with, or at least deal with it in a less confrontational way. On internet forums, those social strategies don't seem to apply for many. I'm relatively happy that there are so few who stand out as truly asocial. But that's just my perception.
  3. That just about exhausts all options... Cheer up fellah
  4. Gwynedd? You mean, "we already use them" surely? Lovely part of the world.
  5. First impressions? Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
  6. I'm going to suggest to my wife that she can watch me flying by candlelight with a bottle of Champagne.... It's been nice knowing you all.
  7. A fair point if it had been set out in the announcement, which it wasn't.
  8. No great fan of that myself. Still, if it took a week to add it, perhaps it will take a week to get rid. I thought I'd had too much gin (as if that's possible).
  9. If this experience doesn't teach me anything else, it has really put into context the massive amount of work that goes into each little step forward. Rather like RoF, you can almost sense the sweat and tears each week! I'm not one to expect an aircraft a week in any case, but it's a real insight. Thanks devs!
  10. The Peshka looks absolutely fantastic. Some good stuff ahead. Thanks!
  11. Air Combat Over the Eastern Front & Korea is a first hand account by Sergei Kramarenko and is a very interesting read. He flew LaGG 3s (fortunately not in combat as his unit was re-equipped with La 5s before he had that misfortune). The first two thirds of the book deal with his WWII experiences.
  12. You mean, "thanks, but no tanks"?Ca va Fifi?
  13. I'm really enjoying the LaGG. It's certainly a challenge, but I have managed to shoot down four 109s a few times. You need a good height advantage and to avoid tight turns. Having tried to hit them in head-on passes every time, I now find that going in with a height advantage of 1,500m or so and then diving towards the EA but pulling up into a loop before they are in range seems to work. They try to climb to follow you and by the time you've got over the top they are wallowing around and you have a chance to dive on them. You generally have about two or three turns before your energy advantage evaporates into thin air, after which, climbing gently beneath the distant dot in the sky and then diving beneath them to low altitude when they dive on you gives you a chance. Landing is becoming a bit less horrible as well.
  14. I hope you all enjoyed your break. Happy New Year and thanks for all your fantastic work.
