What's New?


20th November 2000

Xmas is coming

Not much action at the base the last couple of weeks, for which I apologise. I've been extremely busy sorting out other things - which brings me to the point of emails:

I get a LOT of mail and it falls into two main categories:
  • e-mails which give me information and feedback
  • e-mails which ask for games, information and answers to questions
The first category I appreciate - but please don't be offended if I don't reply quickly .... or sometimes, at all! Smiling

I try though - and reader's contributions make up a valuable and significant portion of the site's content. Actually one of the best ways you can show appreciation for the site is to buy a game or piece of hardware through the MiGMan's Flight Sim Shop links.

The second category I used to reply to individually, then I wrote up several Frequently Asked Questions pages to refer people to which cover -
  • What is MiGMan's Combat Diary all about?
  • Fair go mate! - Using the Flight Sim Museum
  • Questions about software at MiGMan's Combat Diary
  • Questions about Flight Sim and Game Hardware
  • Questions about software at MiGMan's Combat Diary and more)
... but now I may have to simply ignore these types of questions -- as rude as that may seem. There simply aren't enough hours in the day! Busy people will understand this I'm sure.

In the meantime I'm playing with the Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic Commander, Sidewinder Game Voice and Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 so there will be info going up on those in the next week or so.

Feel the Force!

World War 2 Pilots

I found a good site based in San Francisco: www.worldwar2pilots.com

From the website:
The Group is informal and there are only two rules:
1 - You must have been an Allied or Axis pilot or co-pilot during World War II.
2 - If you die at lunch, you get kicked out of the organization.

Thats it. Pretty simple rules don't you think? Well we have among us a tank driver...
