    Sorry to hear that Dave. I hope it is not giving you any pain, and that the hospital gets you sorted out soon.

    Cheers chaps, it's not imminent but it is distracting and will be major surgery when it happens, though I should be recovered from it in six weeks, if all goes to plan.

    Glad you have been given the go ahead for the surgery, if not a date as yet. Here to help as and when buddy

    PS By the way, I wonder if, during hospitalisation, you will have the opportunity to meet Nurse Schultz!

    We shall keep the mess open late when the time comes, Dave! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Hi Dave - sorry to have missed this, hope everything goes well when you get the call. If it's soon you might gave a bed next to Nurse Shultz, or if she's recovered from her recent escapade you might have a bed under her care.
    Not sure which would be worse.
    All the best and take care.

    I've just tried to post my latest missadventure and the site is giving me a message to say that my first photo is over my limit by 105,95 mb but as the photo is only 40 kb I don't understand why that would be. I have a silver membership and that has just been collected via Paypal. There's no where I can see what my limit to post is, nor how much I've posted to date. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be grateful for any help.
    I was hoping to post this tonight because tomorrow I go foreign for 2 months and probably can't post anything other than comments due to data limitations. Anyway if I can't resolve it then it looks like the end of the road for 2nd Lt Vagabond in the OTT Campaign.
    All the best mes amies.

    See if it is OK now John and if so check with Keith to make sure your Membership has gone through, because Tim had the same problem. I have restored your Silver Membership for now.

    Hi John, have you looked at your active subscriptions in your profile as I know Tim had some problems with his membership and being restricted?

    Rob you are a star, thanks, I've posted the game and will check with Keith when I can. As far as I can see I've used 180 Mb and should have 500 mb although I'm sure the last time I looked it was much more that 180 but still a long way from 500.
    Thanks for your help. I'll let you know how I get on. I'll also check the mail from Paypal but I know the money has left my bank account.
    Cheers and thanks to Teaticket and Baz for their help as well. Cheers again.

    Just had a look at my photo usage and see I will have to delete some of mine as I am at 954Mb out of the 1Gb allotment for Gold Membership.


    For a start it looks like the ones I posted of the USAF Museum in Dayton back in 2015 will have to go ...

    Good morning chaps, Flying Officer Vagabond landed in Blighty yesterday and is reporting for duty. Looking forward to catching up on the games played and to getting my planes flying over enemy territory again.
    Lots to do first though, the grass is 2ft tall and I'll need a scythe to cut it. Or maybe a lewis gun.
    Cheers

    Lt John Vagabond is celebrating his 15th and 16th victories, you are all invited to the Mess. I'm in the chair tonight, and the drinks are on me.

    Of course I'm expecting you to all drink responsibly, i.e. don't spill any.

    Any impolite comments about my new and exalted rank and I'm sure Biff will have you on tomorrow's early morning patrol.

    See you there.

    Regret I saw neither hide nor hair of him all weekend, Rob. But Margam Park muster was certainly eventful. One of our riders (Waller's Horse) came off spectacularly at the gallop, when her girth broke in the middle of the battlefield on day one. Fortunately she was unharmed, mainly by doing a very artistic forward role when she hit the ground. She was carted off on a stretcher but and was back in the saddle the next day. Balls of steel was what I thought, perhaps inappropriately. Then more tragically, Steve Pickering, a Royalist friend whom I've known and liked for years and whom you may also know, had a horse spook whilst mounting. It fell over backwards and on top of him. Taken to hospital with level 1 critical injuries and has been operated on today. I just pray he's ok ish now. Other than that I enjoyed the event enormously. Played at being a mounted dragoon, to dismount and go bang - then remount to play trooper on behalf of the Parliament. But I never saw the Lord General, sorry

    Away from the office early tomorrow, for the weekend in Doncaster. Hope to deal with any more mission 9 questions by the end of this evening. Otherwise, when I get back Monday or Tuesday.

    Well, my friends. I have completed the "official" OTT EYM mission 9 and the AAR is all ready to post. However, some of the pics at the beginning are definite spoilers if you haven't already played the scenario. So I shall not post the AAR until our return from Canada in October - Unless, of course, there is an outcry and you want me to go ahead now. But I repeat, this mission is all about accurate / inaccurate bombing on a mixed military and civilian target and the attempt to do that well based on photo interpretation. The Target photo may be pretty obvious to you all anyway, so spoilers may not make a difference. In which case, if you want me to post the AAR I shall. Just don't assume that because I bombed something, that is the right spot to bomb. You'd get a surprise
    If I don't hear otherwise its going up in October.
    Chau for now,
    Mike

    No problem with waiting, Mike; a lot of players are just catching up anyway. Besides, I don't know if spoilers matter - after rolling for deviation and then selecting the primary target dot at random it's unlikely a player will "hit" what they think are military targets. I've played the game and the final "primary" red dots aren't at all the targets for which I was "aiming to hit."

    Of my four bombing "packages", only one didn't deviate. The others deviated by 2, 5 and 6 cm. That still wasn't too bad as my "aiming" point dot was still in the "frame" in all cases, but, alas, the random roll never once selected my "aiming" point dot.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Just like real life. Figured that was your intention, which is why following the "rules as written" for bombing would be "for the obeyance of fools".

    No problem for me. I will be on a cruise - away for most of October. I doubt I will get the game played before I leave and, even if I do, I won't be able to do up the AAR until November. I'd rather play the game in November than leave a month between the game and write up.

    No problem Chris, a few chaps are behind the curve anyway, including me this month. I've just played 9 and have yet to do the pics and narrative.

    I hope it's warm. Embark at Pireaus (Athens) with ports of call at Istanbul, Kuşadasi (Ephesus), Peloponnesus (Mycenae and Corinth) and Greek islands (Santorini, Delos, and Crete), then over to Sicily and Naples and disembark at Civitavecchia (Rome).

    Good morning all. Just made it back from Canada, bringing with us a hefty dose of Covid! I've a bit of catching up to do but no energy to do it right now, so things are on hold for a few more days. Looking forward to getting back into the swing of it
