  1. I absolutely love this video of Frank Stippler racing his MASERATI 250F "PICCOLO" at Monaco's Historic Grand Prix of 2014. The sound of the engine through the gear changes is bloody marvellous, and the way Stippler has to fight the oversteer in every corner is something to behold. Today's Formula 1, with their computerized everything in the cars, has lost the plot, I fear. If only we could go back to this "form factor" but with added safety for the drivers, eh? Take this basic design, but with a carbon fiber monocoque survival cell and impact-resistant fuel bladders and let them race! Yes, you can now punch my old fart's "Let's go back to the good ol' days" card. HAHA!
  2. Hi, there, Doug!

    Just a heads-up to give my new phone number and address for the record.

    4500 Tippwood Way......Sacramento.....California.......95842



  3. to all who fought and fell on the beaches 72 years ago today.
  4. I shall have you thwone to the fwoor!
  5. Yep. Preview is working now for me, too. Now, am I just not very observant, or is the "Emoticons I've used recently" a new feature in the smiley thingmie?
  6. Hey all, I just upgraded the forum software to the latest version and there are a few new features. Notably, there is a preview icon on the far right of the new post editor. Click it and you can preview how your post will look in desktop, tablet, and phone displays. I just tried it, but all I got was a blank display ... so maybe not ready for prime time? I do know that the software is still re-indexing all the posts on the forum and that will take many, many hours, so maybe it'll start working. Or, maybe it'll work in different browsers. I'm using Firefox, and I'm too lazy to look at in Chrome, IE, Safari, and the like. Any feedback from y'all would be greatly appreciated. There is a slew of other minor improvements, so if you find things not working like before, sound off here and let me know. ~ The Dude Forum Fuhrer
  7. Binky! All is well here. The fires are very far north of my location, but virtually every person here knows at least one or more people who either live or work in Fort McMurray where the fires are raging. What sims (if any) are you playing these days? We could use you in ArmA if you have the rig to run it
  8. Heya, Arch ... Congrats on retirement. Pace yourself! You don't have to clean out the garage the first week
  9. Red! Gunny, Deacon, Madman, and I are still running and gunning in ArmA and doing the occasional sortie in IL-2. We could use your SAW in the line. I'll PM you the details. Other than that, Donnie, Stans are still locked in a post count race and Rommel returned with an epic story that pegged the mirth and surreal meters at 11. Anything else going on in here, I'm out of the loop, so I'll let the others fill you in.
  10. Finally! I'm all caught up Ready for more
  11. Need to duct tape Donnie's arse to a pipe the exits on the outside of the CSS Fishbait and start feeding him fried kielbasas and cabbage. We'll be off the sea floor in no time! That is, if Gunny doesn't foil my brilliant plan with his beano and whichamacallit mixture.
  12. Zhis ist von epich und cuckoo und funnybonen-schmackin' schtory! Apologies for my terrible Germlish.
  13. Okay, as much as I hate to admit it, that was a half-decent pun
  14. I went to take a look in the archives for you, Donnie ... but I didn't get very far. Anyone got a good anti-bacterial ointment for punji stick wounds?
