I’ve been working like CRAZY on the new WCSG site, and not only have I not blogged, I haven’t even really read any blogs.  The site went live at 3am this morning, check it out.

In high school I played a game on the Commadore 64 called Pirates.  It was totally killer.  They’ve released a new version that is also totally killer.  I’ve been meaning to blog it, but Pfitz pretty much echoed the entire post I had in my head.  Go read it.

I inherited about 4 years worth of National Geographic magazines, so I’ll be reading those for quiet some time.

I finished The Great Book Of Modern Warplanes, despite the fact that it sits there in my "Currently Reading" section.  It’s a great book, though a little dated.  It’s from the late 1980’s.  It’s about 18 inches tall, 14 inches wide, and about 3 inches thick.  Insanely comprehensive, and quite nostalgic.  They deal a lot with the history behind each plane they cover, so in the B1 section they talk about the B-58 and the B-70, both of which should bring fond smiles to the face of any aviation buff.  It’s a good book  I’ll loan it to anyone who wants to come get it.

Sharathon is coming, and I have to crunch HARD on it, so  probably won’t be posting again for a while.

  1. Heh. You said “aviation” and “buff” in the same sentence. That strikes me as particularly funny. It would be even more funny had you said “B-52 buff”. đŸ˜‰

  2. I like the new site.
    I wonder what I am missing because I do not have the missing plugin that never seems to install.
    (moz on Ubuntu)

  3. Yeah, Sid Meier’s Pirates game TOTALLY ROCKS!! It’s quickly become my favorite computer game.

    And I don’t even want to THINK about aviators in the buff!!

  4. The question is – have you actually played the new Pirates game? or are you just tipping your virtual hat towards it?

    Reminds me a bit of a virual “Seafarers of Catan”…..

  5. We heard a unique plane whle talking to each other in the office today. It being an Air Guard office there was a mad rush to the window to see a formation of 4 F-15s buzzing the Norwich University campus. One went into burner for his turn over the parade ground. We assumed he was the Norwich grad. Flyovers by alumni are a not too rare event here. Good fun…
