    New Toy Mmm

    Hurrah! Something has obviously gone wrong for whoever organises the weather here and they appear to have run out of water to tip over us. 'twixt Holne and Hexworthy this afternoon. Looks like I'm about to join Painless in the family shortarse club!

    HDD problems

    Hmmmm, yeah. I might try that cooling possibly. Hate that I lost stuff all the way back to 2014, though. Eh, my own fault for not making multiple backups.
  7. Oh well, As i didn't (notice the pass tense) have the Hornet, I bought the naval warfare bundle, and the Persian gulf map, with discounts and dcs miles for $90 🙈
  8. Immediately start making new backups As for that defective disk: I'd maybe try and put it in the fridge for a while, make it real cool. Then re-connect it, who knows it may fire up. But that's just a last resort attempt, more for laughs and giggles - as well, what if that would work? Now that'd be so cool! I'd just count that disk as a loss.

    HDD problems

    The other day, my computer (2 HDDs) wouldn't boot. I tracked it to my backup drive, a 2TB Seagate Barracuda, with a platter. Unplugged it, and the other drive booted fine, but found that the 2TB was rather hot to the touch. Not good. Did some research, found the dreaded "clicking", that is, the read arm skipping and resetting as it failed to read - and apparently grinding scratches across the 1s and 0s as it went. Confirmed it on another computer (with a quieter fan, so that I could hear the clicking). The drive (and all my backups!) are most likely gone, but the only possibility the internet gave me of even a hope of recovering anything was sending it to a specialist in data recovery, which the sources stated would NOT be cheap, and also not be guaranteed, bordering on not worth it based on the probability that the HDD platter was scratched from the read arm skipping on it, and that the data is destroyed. Thoughts? Other options? Thanks, all.
  10. For....ahem....cinematic purposes I'm hoping we might find the time tomorrow (sunday) evening for a little mass P-51 formation flying wearing 'Blue-nosed bastards of Bodney' skins. Nothing too dramatic or taxing, just a large gaggle flying gently around for a bit I've uploaded the appropriate set of 4k skins to the skault so they are available via Checkskins or you can have a look at 'em and d/l from here. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/55168-bugsys-p-51-skins/?do=findComment&comment=876083 Or of course you can tell me to get stuffed!

  15. Oh good grief - TONAR! Get yourself back in here mate - I'm still providing target practice.
  16. OK, I will also chime in and say that I also dusted off my joystick (The dusty one). Ran into Psycho on FB yesterday and am really wanting to get the system up again. I really am stoked that you all still fly together. It was like a family when I was around and I missed you all. (Even though I couldn't understand most of you....Delta) Looks like I need to purchase a new game

  19. More news Dear friends, The year 2020 is here in full force. Let's hope that the new decade will bring good changes to our world. We in the IL-2 Sturmovik team are beginning the work on the new project, Battle of Normandy. For instance, the production of 3D models for several new planes has started already. We're researching the possibility of moving the rendering engine to Deferred Shading tech. The map team has begun the research of the new map. We're making design documents on new buildings, ground vehicles, ships and motorboats. We're continuing our approach of improving our sim constantly - the incoming update 4.004 will bring many improvements for our already released projects. It will also add the new tank for Tank Crew - Pz.Kpfw.V Ausf.D "Panther" - and additional airfields and visually improved banks of the countless rivers and canals on the Rheinland map.
  20. What's a "Sid"? sounds sketchy

  22. Last week
  23. When we bought our house last year I asked Spectrum/Charter if they could provide service. They said they would send out a surveyor to confirm, came back and yep no problem. Moved in and then was told no service, team lead for engineers came through, dropped a 400' cable and got us 1Gb internet. Alternative was satellite, AT&T can only provide 74Kb lol. Dark ages!
