    There is a scene in The Sky Riders movie (1968, I receommend it, by the way) when an English radio operator tunes a Händel's Messiah over Germany and plays it to the headphones of others. A spiritual moment in moments without fire. A rear gunner says: "There is no God, Tommy. No God." and he replies: "I see, but you never know."

    And I guess there is only a gin in bottle of Rakija (in our language a jinn and gin have the same pronunciation), but you never know

    OK, an update: Germany requires a negative test for Prague residents. Situation here is not the best, but I still hope it will be under control during event weekend. Talked shortly about it with Kubajs yesterday and we are still running preparations as usuall (so far so good).

    My recommendation is: stay tunned, watch news and do according of recommendations of your Foreign Ministry.

    Yeah, things have gone down the hill here in Czech. And the scientists expect it to start going down even steeper.

    Due to the rising infection numbers in all European capitals, Prag, Budapest, München, etc..., I have to cancel my travel plans for Prague (Czech comrades already informed).

    Had a serious talk with my wife before and there are harsh travel restriction for Bavarian police officers.

    Hope to see you all next year...

    Last week Dutch provinces North Holland (incorporating Amsterdam) and South Holland (incorporating The Hague and Rotterdam) have been given code Red
    The number of infections rising dramatically ..., luckily (?) no total lock down or general quarantine (yet).
    We will have to sit this one out, for how long is anybodies guess ...
    Wishing everybody here wisdom, patience and good health.
    Take care chaps and undoubtedly we will see each other again in the (near) future.

    cheers from sunny The Hague ..

    It is really hard to understand why we do not have such an option - in this digital world we live in.

    Years ago it was an online version of WGF for PC. I recall playing it online with others in a so called "room", just like Memoir'44 online works nowadays. There was a wide range of aeroplanes and it worked smoothly. do not remember the name of the version, but after some time it was not updated or sth. and became not available.

    It can not be difficult to construct. No 3D sophisticated graphics or so.
    What comes to my mind as a solution is ...fundraising for an IT student?

    It was a java app made by missaak (thread online wings of war - testers and helpers wanted) and you can see the official explanation and some screenshots below.

    There was some move of copyrights of the game and I didn't start communication with new owners if my activity is still acceptable by them. If someone is interested in this online edition of WoW and is able to find and ask current holder of WoG copyrights I am able to install new server and switch on the server again.
    On the other hand I'm not currently able to support new development of the game (finish statistics, add support of WW2, etc as we planned before).

    YES! That was it! How can we resurrect this gem?

    As far as I know, missaak isn't in this game anymore. Of course, some details changed (complete DB made by Honza, Nexus down), but I dont believe we can ressurect it. Unfortunately.

    If nothing goes well with this year's Con, what do you think we all organize gaming day in our respective gaming groups, and play the same scenario (or at least war and theatre) on Saturday 17th?
