Super Carrier module is up for pre-order!  :smitten:
Price comes down to (only) 25 dollah if you own Hornet already.  \m/

Plus you can use miles. I think my total cost was like $21.00!

Sweet, might grab the Jf-17 and use the miles on supercarrier.

Great topic Gus. Much of my problem was that I used to like the idea of monster games more than I enjoyed playing them. I wouldn't invest the time to fully know the rules so I'd never get good. War in the East is a perfect example of it. I so love the idea, but my attention span never last long enough to dig deeper. Same with War in the Pacific. Not knowing the subject matter at all concerning that part of the war was the real hurdle I never got over.

Ozzy Osbourne. One minute he's incoherent, the next he's putting out a GREAT jam. Probably the best Ozzy stuff in a long time. Thanks Dog. It's new to me.

My parents were into oldies but for some reason they had Black Sabbath Paranoid album. My brother used to crank it when they were away and would tell me the guy on the cover was coming to get me. The music was so dark. Looking back it's just some dude with a pink sash, tights and a motorcycle helmet. I've been a fan ever since.

Oh me? I'm spending free time demoing the house. Wish I had more time to game (read any) but all is well here. Waiting for the wife to come down as she has been staying at our current house an hour and forty five minutes away near her work. I haven't seen her since last weekend. We've been getting along great. ;D

Here's an odd one. The demo of War Pigs which was supposed to be called "Walpurgis". The record company thought it too dark. The music is very near what you kanow as War Pigs, but the words are very different. Worth a listen if anyone is an Ozzy fan.

A bunch of people prior said it better than I ever could.

Thoughts are with you and your family.

Got it running, thank you Martok and UCG. I was missing two files  :notworthy:

And I can't imagine what this will be like once it's in full release...just this alpha state is impressive. There's a playable Wallachia! They are ranked as very hard to play, though. And not all factions have detailed launch page descriptions yet but the ones that do are very good.

Toonces needs to get this loaded now.

Jason well stated.  I understand where you're coming from.

Martok I'm so sorry to hear this news.  Your story sounds amazingly similar to mine.  My father is also on some sort of chemo that is designed not to eliminate the cancer in his lymph nodes but only slow it down.  Like you I'm facing the possibility that the man who loved, taught, and raised me will probably be gone by summer.  My advice to you is what I'm trying to do despite the busy things everyday living throws at you is to spend as much time as possible with your dad.  Even if only on the phone it means a lot.  When the day comes I know it will hit like a ton of bricks but for now I try to show him strength and never reveal the worry I have for him. 

For whatever it's worth, whether you believe in anything spiritual or not, I believe there is life here-after.  We will all meet up again someday in a better place.  Keep the faith!

Martok-I'm sorry.  My prayers are to your and your dad.  I lost mine in 2012, due to a cancer possibly caused by Agent Orange.  I was fortunate, in that he lived much longer, and with a higher quality of life than we had a right to expect. Like you, I didn't realize how serious it was until it was late.  For what it is worth, spend what time you can with him.  Say the things that need and/or should have been said before this moment.  Let him know you love him.  Have faith that you will meet again.
