I reckon a DoB of 1984 puts me right at Elder territory. Incidentally, Elder Millenial isn't my term I shamelessly stole it from Iliza Shlesinger's Netflix comedy special. Well worth a watch, she is hilarious. And it's filmed on the hanger deck of an old aircraft carrier, so plenty of aviation history in the background, though personally Iliza a little difficult to take the eyes off... 🤭

Only as old as you feel, or rather the memes you make. I was too born in 1984 and can construct memes. The quality or "dankness" is debatable.

While you are all waiting why not enjoy this most erudite and highly topical offering from Gilbert & Sullivan, which amazingly manages to condense the last twenty years of flight sim discussion into just three verses.  :happy:

Someone in tune with the memes the kids use these days needs to make one of those tiny brain-galaxy brain images about this.
Not me, of course, I grew old before my time.

Like this?

I will say 1984 was a damn fine year. It was the year the Detroit Tigers started the season going 35-5. Never done before or since in the MLB. Finished the playoff and World Series going a combined 7-1 for the same win/loss percentage they'd started the season with. A great baseball team.


Now, where's my DD?

1984 was a good book, too.

I'm from the Baby Boomer era. Would Star Trek and Miley Cyrus count as a meme?

This was too big a DD for the Devs to be very busy. Now I think we're looking at a mid-October release 😉

It amazes me what passes for talent today. For that matter, what passes for sex appeal too.

No, it just means they are comfortable with it and letting the beta testers have one last go over the weekend before they pack it up on Monday or Tuesday.... 🤫

I hope the update comes tomorrow... the wait's been so long 😅

I know the sale will still be on, but that hasn't stopped the devs from saying the update would come in late September the last few weeks

Yeah that is really a very nice painting. It is from Forsyths new publication. Artwork by Gareth Hector. The capture reads:
 

Quote

 

On 7 March 1945, Sqn Ldr Evan Mackie of No. 80 Sqn engaged an Fw 190D-9 in a fierce dogfight near Enschede. The latter aircraft was probably Wk-Nr. 400247 ‘Black 4’, flown by Unteroffizier Otto Salewski of 10./ JG 26. While climbing up to 8,000ft, Mackie, who was in Tempest NV700/ W2-A, had initially spotted the vapour trails of six to eight Focke-Wulfs above him at about 15,000ft. Continuing to climb through patchy cloud, he and his squadron intercepted the ‘Doras’ at around 13,000ft as they were diving down to attack other Tempests. Mackie singled out Salewski, chasing him vertically down to 3,000ft. For the next five minutes the two fighters duelled over the flat, open countryside between Plantlünne and Rheine until Mackie, aided by the arrival of two more Tempests from No. 274 Sqn, fired a one-and-a-half-second burst, with 30 degrees of deflection, from approximately 200 yards. Flames tailed back from the Focke-Wulf’s cockpit and it crashed ‘in a mushroom of smoke and flame’ north of Rheine near the village of Schüttorf. Salewski perished.

As for the release date, for it to still be technically September 30, a release time of 4:59a/m PDT October 1, would be correct.  What you ask?, well at the International date line it would still be September 30, and I believe Midway Island is one time zone away.  

I'm still betting on an October 1 release date at what time? to be determined later.:coffee:

If it was this week they would have said.  However in the DD it was just “very soon” which makes me think there is still much to do and it will be some time in October.

DD 230 13.Sept - "The team is very busy preparing the next update due later this month ..."
DD 231 20.Sept - "We're in the second half of September and this means that the next update 3.201 isn't far away."
DD 232 27.Sept - "The next update 3.201 will be released really soon."

 

We are on a good way. This week is the week.
