  1. Just want to give a big tank you to everyone who participated in yesterday's fun and a special tank you to Friar for showing me the Tank Crew ropes.
  2. You're...😉 See, I'm getting better already.
  3. "Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times." DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT MY HEAD!
  4. Well my wife thought it would be cute to label the occasional box "Surprises" and "Mystery" which doesn't help. Endless sea not "see". God my lack of proof reading is appalling.
  5. "Two weeks, be sure."
  6. I wasn't trying to sell you on it, just wanted to clarify that IL-2 BOX does support VR. I'm looking forward to trying it out at least. I personally am very prone to motion sickness. VR is a strange thing, certain things you'd think would definitely give you motion sickness don't, while a very few things will bring it on almost instantly. Driving cars, flying planes, riding a coaster and stuff like that don't make me sick at all. Well, in a twisty fur ball dogfight in DCS where you are pulling G's while looking back I can get a mild sense of motion discomfort but it's actually pretty cool and very immersive feeling. The killer for me is any game where you can walk around in first person without teleporting, like Espire 1 VR. That will make me barf if I turn off the teleportation movement.
  7. Don't know if this thread is considered necroed now but I just saw this. To the best of my knowledge, and for clarity sake, I believe IL-2 BOX supports VR and rather well at that from what I've read. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I haven't played in over a year because downloading the updates was a P.I.T.A. before. Subsequently, I haven't tried it in VR yet. In fact, now I recall buying Flying Circus on sale because it supports VR and I thought VR would serve the more basic aircraft better than DCS with all it's complicated clickiness. I haven't tried it out either yet, hadn't even downloaded it. In fact, I have quite a few things I've purchased over the last year I haven't even installed because of the horrors of satellite. Couple of days and I'll be back in the swing with modern civilization. I did find out, before moving, that Starlink from Google and SpaceX was available now in North America, which relies on low earth orbit satellites rather than distant geosynchronous ones. It's in the trial phases so one has to buy their own equipment which is 400 USD plus the 100 USD per month subscription. Last I checked most folks were getting something like 200 to 300Mbps which is being ratcheted up periodically with updates. I think when it's all finished it's supposed to be like Gigabit speeds with pings around 30ms.
  8. Man, don't tell me that. LOL, I did a pretty good job of organizing when I boxed so hopefully it won't be too bad.
  9. To your earlier question regarding my daughter, yes would be the same one, she was probably 3 or 4 then, she's 16 now. I vaguely remember you remoting into my PC for IL2, but that was a LOOONG time ago. Must have been around my first day with the Dogz. As for the wife, she's still processing the change but she's happy as hell. Her mom's house is 6 minutes away, mine is ~20. She keeps remarking on things like "Ooh, that's gonna make things easier." regarding just about everything. Elementary, Middle and High School are all within 3 miles, stores and gas station are like 2 minutes from the house. Just got two of the three cats in the new house and it's funny watching them explore in bewilderment. All moving trucks are now unloaded and returned, furniture is in but not completely set up. Now comes the arduous task of finding the right boxes in the endless sea of too much stuff that is our garage now.
  10. Awesome, great job. Now if I could only get my kids to eat their veggies like that I really be onto something. UPDATE: In the new house, Spectrum is up and running. Hopefully I can get my desk and rig in some kind of usable shape tomorrow. On my son's PC right now. On his WIFI dongle, which will be updated shortly (not that it matters) I've been getting a consistent 65Mbs down and 22Mbs up. Funny, I'm not superstitious at all but, my wife was like "Hey it's Friday the 13th!" and I was all like, "Whatever". So I go to move a moving van from my mom's house, where I had it laying over while we closed on the house, and the bastard broke down on me half way, leaving me stranded, in the heat, in the middle of nowhere, with no cell phone (left it home like a moron). So, this tow truck guy drove by and said he'd have the company send a bigger wrecker capable of moving a Uhaul, but an hour later no one had shown up so I was like, "To hell with this" and knocked on someone's door. Dude spoke to me over the Ring system (found out later he was actually at work at the time) and he sent an old feller by, who called Uhaul for me. So help is on the way and guess what? The tow truck guy from earlier drives by again and says "Man, nobody came by to help you yet?" To which I said "Got it under control." Never using Buck's Towing that's for sure.
  11. It's about half an acre which is fine, two minutes from town but with the country to our backs. Coming from 12.9 acres out in the sticks it's going to be a huge quality of life improvement in pretty much every way. The old place was unrestricted, which was awesome, but it took 14 minutes to get anywhere. There were other drawbacks as well. Either way, the money I made off it combined with what we made off our last house enabled our current situation so in the long run well worth it. We netted about 92K off it in 6 years so not a horrible investment. The real estate market was crazy this summer, not fun at all, but I think things are cooling off just a bit now. It's a pretty bad time to buy and sell, this has been the worst real estate experience I've ever dealt with. We probably struck right when the iron was hot but it's been a fine example of Murphy's law. Our new place is central to 4 cities and several towns, the money we save on gas alone is going to be substantial. We can finally have food delivered to the house again.
  12. Beautiful. It all looks delicious. My daughter wants to start a garden but probably have to wait till next season. By the way, should be in the new house tomorrow, I have to pick up my gear from Spectrum. 400Mbs down, 20Mbs up! 🐑 P.S. Love it and best part is it's paid for. 🤗
  13. Every time I see those old movies of guys walking boards or beams 35+ stories up I get the heebie-jeebies.
