  1. Hey y'all! Just necro posting in 2019 and checking in at the same time. Me and LadyZ are doing fine, and we not too long ago heard from vonM who's also doing fine. LZ and I were in fact just wondering what happened to Mane Raptor, among others (e.g., Gunny). 😁 Glad to see the forum is still alive and kicking! Take care, Z
  2. Heya CJ! Yeah we're still up in the Great White Canuckistan. ELF2001 was indeed awesome. Lots of fond memories.
  3. Thanks guys. Things are going fine at Casa Del Z, and I've passed along your greetz to LZ. Funnily enough, I picked up a nice Saitek AV8R joystick at a local thrift shop for something like $8 last month, and fired up IL-2 (which I bought off of gog.com for something like $5) for the first time in eons. Was fun to get in the cockpit again, and the muscle memory of years of EAW dogfighting kicked in pretty fast. Regrettably it looks like nothing ever really deposed IL-2, which itself was inferior to EAW IMHO (it's purtier graphics-wise, to be sure, but the *experience* just ain't there
  4. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR, Y'ALL! Zhukie and LadyZ

    Happy New Year to you and Lottie, Donnie! And, Sulla, is that you? You guys all changed you handles at some point. Beaucoup confusing!

    Happy New Year to you, CJ! Very sorry to hear about your Mom. My condolences to you and your family.

    Stans, I just bumped it up to 50,000. Now, drop and give me 25!

    Heya OG! LZ sends her regards (and does the 'wow - blast from the past' thing too). Just read a book I think you'd enjoy - 'The Drowning Pool' by Ross Mcdonald. You ever read any of those Lew Archer novels?

    The mere fact that you did that calculation means that you're seriously thinking about it.

    Um, Stans..you do realize that you have 35,497 posts, right? Nothing less than 45,000 in 2011! :thumbsup:

  13. LadyZ sez, that she recalls that night filled with fireflies in Maine.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, LADIES! At ease.
  15. Stag -- why do they call it a 'Hung Parliament' over in your neck of the woods? Over here we call it a 'Minority Government', and many of us consider that to be a good thing. Just askin'.
  16. Tough to avoid blackflies in May/June -- at least here in Quebec -- best to go earlier than later. But not too early! Pesky snow.

    Hey Cobraj!

    Happy birthday, ya big lug! Z
  18. So, anyone have any opinions on what year was the high watermark for combat sims? I'd say 1998 -- the year of EAW and Jane's WW2 Fighters. Z
  19. Heya $50Jones, Yep -- 'Point Blank' it is. Good call! I would have been equally impressed if you said 'Prime Cut', but the correct answer is indeed 'Point Blank'. As for Panzer Elite, I'm running it very nicely on a Vista64 system. Use the gog.com version -- they take the effort to make sure that all games on that site run well on Vista. I was also able to install the 3rd-party mods on top of the gog.com PE-SE with no problems. Hope this helps! Z
  20. Just bought Far Cry through gog.com for 10 smackers: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/far_cry It's an older game, but for a shooter it's nice and slow and has got a lot of stealthy stuff going for it. Doug will like it because it has swaying vegetation. Rotsa fun! Z
  21. Just watched that YouTube ArmA2 flick. Wow. Just wow. Z
