Regarding IL2/AEP/PF Patch 4.03m

Yeah, the Tempest is nice, and the Mossie is nice.  Really nice.  Those are some awesome aircraft.

But c'mon, a Do-335?  Okay, so we haven't had one of those since SWOTL.  And there's a darn good reason -- we don't need a Do-335!  Oh, shut up.  Okay, let me qualify that statement.  Nobody normal needs a Do-335.  Some Scandanavian...

Fatherhood -- It's a Different Life

Already, I can see my perceptions and reactions changing.

Last night, Jen said the baby wasn't kicking very much.  All of a sudden, I was hit with this wall of worry.  A good friend of mine lost their child in the eighth month when the umbilical cord wrapped around the baby's throat.  It was stillborn.
