I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think anyone but Airboy can win at this point, b/c the only points MD can pick up, Airboy would, too

I s'pose it's possible for OJsDad to catch up, but 'Nova would have to lose really soon, and MichSt win it all

A very interesting article that examines the costs of adventure creation and the returns based on online sales.

Ok folks.  We've got 9.  Need one more or I have to create a ghost team.  Who's going to step up?  Will it be you?  Or you? Or You?
Tech Talk / X-52 problem
« Last post by JudgeDredd on Today at 07:20:21 AM »
So I noticed that when I exit a game, on occasion, my mouse would go sluggish, the system would be unresponsive (the mouse would move - sluggishly - but clicking would result in nothing) and there'd be occasional beeping noises. The keyboard would be fine though. Loading task manager showed No processes running at all.

In the end, it required a reboot of my system.

I've now tracked this down to my X-52. Whenever I unplug my Saitek X-52 Pro flight stick after playing a game, the system goes into it's unresponsive mode as described above. This ONLY happens with my X-52 (unplugging my steering wheel is fine).

Bloody annoying. Effectively coming out of any space or flight sim results in a hard reboot.

Is that a consumable for Scipio?
Elephants also don't like loud noises.
A friend claimed that Scipio trained his musicians to get close and blow their tubariums suddenly near the ears at Zama.
I voted for the Longest Day.  Oh, wait. 
Tora Tora Tora is one of the finest historical war films ever made.  And I'm a stickler, I've spent my life career and a couple of degrees on history, and find very few flaws with it. 

But....I voted Patton.  George C. Scott delivered one of the greatest screen performances of all time.  And structurally, visually, it's just a better movie.  Maybe not truer and more accurate to history, but a better movie.  I can't look away when either film is on the screen, but I have to give Patton it's due.  Scott took over and embodied the role, to the point where I see him more than the actual historical figure.  The feat of acting it takes to achieve that is simply too much for me to ignore.

But, but... panzers?!?

Although, funnily enough they are M48 "Patton" tanks.  :D
