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.

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”. 😉
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)
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!!
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”…..
I’ve played it FAR too much lately. 🙂
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…
