I miss Siggi! I used to go round and round with him - but in a good hearted exchange of polictical views. I think he and I were the reasons Flame Wars was created. Cool He was one of the original guys. Ended up starting his own IL-2 board. He was thrown off some other board. Siggi always kept things lively. Smile

Despite our differences, I miss DanW too. He contributed some great skins. A real artist.

Spot on Finn !! Simfiles was a treasure trove of wonders. Downloading a plane took forever on 28.8, let alone all the parts of a terrain Smile

Hey All!!! Dang, I get suckered in to these memory lane threads.... Laugh

I lurk here, and the SimHQ board for SDOE, occasionally to see what the old sim is up to. Still the best time of my life, PC and sim-wise, and the continuing dedication of this community brings fond smiles to my otherwise ugly countenance. Smile I fly strictly offline now, with IL2 and BoBII:WOV, the latter of which I have had limited involvement with as a beta tester. And yes, the Spitfire continues to be my favorite ride.... Cool

The sites, and names, mentioned here so far bring back many fond memories of pleasant times and good companions. ( Duck!! It's a Hedgehog!! Pardon that one...inside humor...hehe ).

You folks rock! May you, and SDOE, go on forever!!!

LOL!! Feisty? ME?????

Jerry...doing well, all things considered. And the older I get, the more there seems to be to consider. Laugh

I can almost see TS reading my above inside humor remark, smiling ruefully, and thinking 'They just never understood him.'. Smile

So many memories....once, TS, as a birthday present to me, let me shoot him down. Flew straight and level as he could...still took me almost 10 minutes, hehe!

And we had a female pilot for a while -- for my life, I cannot recall her handle -- who was nearly as good as TS. When they would fly as a team, nearly impossible to beat. I recall shooting her down once....a very lucky deflection shot...and I felt I had to apologize profusely for doing it!!!

And Snicking.....I still do it in IL2, against the AI. About half the time, it results in the AI nosing right into the ground....the other half, it's my AI wingmen who crash trying to follow. Smile

One can wonder, as a philosophic question -- is it the community that makes this sim great, or the sim that makes this community great? But in the end, it's irrelevant.....no matter what you play, if you didn't at least start with SDOE ( and, yes, EAW ), you missed a important part of combat simming and community involvement and caring.

Is there anyone one of the administrators that can affect some kind of instant "rank" change - it is embarrassing in the extreme to see one of the founding fathers labeled "cadet" in spite of his many contributions to this alternate universe! Welcome Back Air Force!!
