  1. ...it's these purely technical problems that make it particularly difficult to direct movies about armor.

    Medal of Honor did a pretty good job of conveying the limits of space and freedom inside a tank, AIR.

    True the in-turret stuff was maybe a couple of minutes; true also that you'd want a lot more than that for a crews'-eye view of the issue. Still...


  2. Just downloaded and installed -.640, seems to run fine. That's the good news.

    The bad news, my gunnery S.U.C.K.S., after more than two years absent from the turret.

    I know how to fix that, though. Trigger time, and lots of it.

    Hope to see you all in-game sometime sooner, rather than later.


  3. For the sake of propriety I'd say that if we were to reconstitute the old VU with the old membership (and add some new faces) then we should necessarily call it something else. Just seems proper.

    All about lambic. And no, it's not a dance.

    Speaking of beer, while you're doing the lambada with the good doctor please do give my best to him and his wife. Also interrogate him about where a good chimay might be found. You won't be sorry.

    Too bad I won't be there myself. In absentia I promise to send a picture of myself, wearing a thong.

    You asked for it.


  4. Shot is still alive and still looking forward to brawling with his old friends Gary, Dark, 12A, and not-least Rat. And a host of others. That means you, Hell-Hound.

    Shot remembers that Rat taught him to 'PC Tango', as well. Shot is working a variety of issues at the moment, but promised to return to the game sooner rather than later. New CM stick, and the scratch for the update.

    Shot will return, however. Especially if his friends are once more in the fight.

    Rat, if HH can't make it, you and Gary and I should either join Gary's VU, or form our own (and ally ourselves with Gary).

    Anyway, Shot is coming back. And promises not to speak of himself in the third person for too much longer.


  5. If the ice stopped it mechanically, the thermal energy extant in the bullet might cause it to caper as seen in the video.

    You can do something not too different with pennies in blocks of dry-ice (frozen CO2). Stick them in more-or-less vertically, and the heat inherent to the penny will cause it to flip back and forth.

    The heat inherent to a bullet stopped in a similar manner might cause the 'dancing' seen in the video, remembering that the bullet is subject to the same thermomechanical stresses and forces as the aforementioned penny, and is circular with respect to said forces where the penny is planar.


  6. Map,

    Great to see you around again.

    RLI for me, as usual. I still pop in from time to time, though.

    Sooner rather than later I hope to -be still my heart- get in a game or two.

    For those of you who don't know, Mapman was the heart and soul of the Fulda Gap campaign, and helped me get my PT gig with eSim games. Map was also my wingie for Paper Tiger one fine night, which will forever live on in 29th AR lore as The Night of The Rubber Sabot.

    Good teammate, good man; good to see him back in the game.
