1 --> 5 DRM Free version I got on gog.


Excellent site to replace many old and worn out disks and as you posted.. DRM free. They also keep a folder for members where all games purchased by members can be re downloaded at any time in the future. Have purchased many titles there, tho CM, WAR and up are not as cheap as one might think. 30$ and up US last time checked. Older ones were only 5-6$ US range.

Its narrow minded to think the only way to fight crime is to have better armed police.

Look at the conditions set that lead to crime and address those issues.

In a broad sense Police are basically treating the symptoms of a nation's condition.


It matters less how well the police are armed than it does how many there are, but if you want to remove their AR15's and their armored cars this is only going to mean more police casualties in gun fights, its not going to save a lot of money, salaries are far more expensive than both guns and armored cars.

We can all look at the issues and conditions that lead to crime, and I'm not sure anybody has a real solution and it's good that we are talking, but it's easy for you to point the finger at us " Narrow minded People ", you'll have no blame placed on you when/if the patient it removed from life support, you'll just be some guy on the internet watching it burn from a distance.  Do you think the complete abolishment of police from one of the most crime ridden cities on earth will improve or worsen the problem?

And you're going to come back at me with abolishment doesn't mean abolishment, but then what would you put in the place of police that would be more effective for the same overall cost?  Robocop ? Drones ? Armed social workers ?  Unarmed social workers ?  Before you remove the police you better have the miracle on hand I think.


What is on life support now are multiple northern/blue cities after weeks and in the case of Portland.. Months of looting and burning. How do these cities get repaired? *DO* they even, or left as burned out husks for future generations to look at and remember what happens when local governments fail the people?

It's not fair for an entire country to pay for failed government in parts of the country, so just why should the federal government step in and bail these places out? CNN has even changed it's tune of late, realizing that hyping these rioters/anarchists was a huge mistake by trying to pass these home grown terrorists off as peaceful protesters, or peaceful in nature and infiltrated by a handful of RW folks doing the bad things, which was laughable from the start.

Anyone else remember the protests from '68? Those were initiated for a reason. These were taken control of by terrorists Antifa and worse who just want to create mayhem and will not stop until every cowering northern city mayor/governor who is a leftist grows a pair.

USA is waaay behind rest of world with rail and energy independence.


US is more than independent as far as energy. It's the #1 producer in the world of oil and natural gas now thanks to someone's intelligent policies. Nothing like not being attached to a ball and chain to unstable Russian/middle eastern sources like Europe currently is and will be for decades to come.

Wind doesn't work, neither is solar a viable alternative to either natural gas/crude oil and even coal puts out energy. china and india have -0- problems using it to power those economies.

It would be nice seeing some kind of rail make a comeback, but it's honestly been on the decline in the states for well over 50y. the government has been heavily subsidizing Amtrack to keep any kind of passenger train transport afloat for how many decades? Subways in big cities the infrastructure is crumbling it's so old, but has been ignored. believe it's the hurry up attitude most young Americans have. I'd be interested to know just how many have been on a train, outside of a subway car.

What about the now attempt at regime change in Venezuela. Caught out on the lies of reinstating democracy by placing a guy - Guaido in to power how never stood in the last elections. Surely this must be a stain upon Trump.


That is pretty funny actually. Venezuela would have fallen under a weight of it's own debt, lack of ability to feed it's own people, or ability to provide any type of medical services had not China and Russia given them masses of money recently to gain a foot hold in this hemisphere.

NOTHING in that country has worked near capacity for years, including it's once prosperous oil wells.
The US recognizing Guaido was nothing more than an attempt to hurry up the death spiral of yet another failed socialist state and hurry up getting it into some kind of (hopefully) democratic form of government under Guaido.

That's it and nice site linked to also  Smile

Aberdeen is history now. Used to have literally hundreds of AFV's from WW1 to post 'Nam era Patton armored museum is a goner also and various tanks all spread out. Crying shame. Some of the examples at those places were/are 1 of a kind left. Why this country cannot honor it's past and preserve it is beyond me.

Getting sticker shock on how much the defense suppliers think they can price gouge for rail gun tech.    It does seem like it could be viable threat but accuracy seems problematic and waaay too expensive.  Phyric victory.  
The Krauts had amazing tech in WW2 and effective for breaking morale of opponents.  But not nearly as effective as massed air power or stealth subs.  I remember WW2 telling me how rattled he was by big Kraut guns aimed at invasion craft in Italy.  He could barely talk about it still was traumatized decades later.


Imagine being in the near proximity of a railgun shell going off would leave a lasting memory, just like surviving a blasting from heavy cruisers or battleship bombardment inland.

Seeing Leopold when it was at Aberdeen years back (no idea if it still is) and how massive the rail gun actually was/is. It's no wonder that gun terrified allied soldiers at the Anzio beach head.

That's pretty hard core DJ. Must really dislike everything the Trump administration has done and is doing in all facets.

Would you prefer going back a couple of years to where the truly FAILED leadership stuck it's head in the sand when all forms of trouble appeared, then lied about it when Americans died as a result?

Not played any CC for 2-3 years, none installed even. Entirely Combat Mission Ladders over at The Blitz. Played Brandenberg and Brake a few times. Remember Brake liked COI if that helps any Loki.

If you have new generation (CM2 any) Sspoomy plays those and I'm active as can be on the 1st generation CMBB and CMAK.

Really nice to see you again bro.

Newegg has literally hundreds of refurbished notebooks and some desktops, many (most) have Win7 preinstalled and some have a 1 year warranty if look through enough of the ones available. i got both my sister and a niece one of these earlier this year.. both 1y warranty versions.

Newegg is US only and is one of the finest online companies have ever dealt with. Never have had any issue with products returned getting replaced.

johnsilver - Was that the time he was going out to meet his forces to sink the US Navy. He got cold feet after an exchange and returned to port. Apparent he may never have left port but had his bluffed called - 1980's


That's part of it. Off Libya we hit some of his so called fishing boats and think was 2 F4's in '86 that came out to challenge the fleet was bombing him. I wasn't there.. Was out of active duty by then, in reserves and only was active on WC (boot camp + schooling) and Caribbean anyway. The joy was the incident coincided with my active period for the year onboard a reserve ship..

Like I keep saying. War is a profitable business to be in and US FP shows that and so does Military weapons exports - Number 1 in the world USA.


Interesting.. Who exactly has been producing millions of automatic rifles per year for export as a way to raise hard cash for decades? Need something bigger? We just have to have one of those laying around also from pre 1990 as a matter of fact also.. if the price is right..

Soviet, some old soviet countries and China it's big biz to produce and keep economy afloat.. Germany.. Israel. Guess they are proliferaters also, fighting every day to stay alive among a area surrounded by devils?

Seems like u and I had a conversation about this very subject that devolved quickly a few years back. you still bring this up? Really with Putin showing he's more unstable AFTER Ukraine?

how safe would all those new European countries be (former soviet satellites) if the US pulled it's forces out of Europe.. which don't get me wrong.. i'd love the see the US do, like pronto.

You really don't think those spanking new democratic (mostly) countries wouldn't all of a sudden have the same breakaway groups wanting to return to the soviet sphere? Don't get me wrong.. I'm tired of the US getting dragged into european conflicts, but not seeing what is plain as day is beyond...

Had forgotten Steve got KG_Soldier (Mark also) from years past into SOW. Seems like he might have/had also gotten another of us old timers back.. He was still recruiting into KG..  All these near 20y later.

I've got CMBN (2nd generation) CM, Market garden, as well as Commonwealth add on and latest 1.4 patch battlefront recently released. Not played it since installing h2H or PBEM.

If you can catch Steve at SOW.. He can set up private rooms at SOW and make a CM room for H2H play, which we used to do there. Would be nice to get bunch of us together again on T/Speak like the old days.

look around on the forums(KG) for email list.. Some are old, I've got more recent ones here if u need for guys kept in somewhat contact with later on Neil.

Forgot SOW link..

Hey Neil,

CC3 was one got me really fired up with CC. 2 was kind of ho-hum thought when was 1st playing it.

Remember Frank and I started a live, on the Zone WF campaign when it came out.. he destroyed me.. Frank was good.

Sorry man. Those few games with Brake cpl years back all the live ones have played since the old Zone days. Reloaded WAR and TLD few days back to play Drizzt's Der Kessel conversion, but vs AI. Only H2H have really done in years is Combat Mission 2 and 3 (CMBB/CMAK) that still play ladders on.

Brake "was" hot and heavy into COI not that awfully long ago, he's the one I'd suggest sending a message to. Had his email, but can't locate right now.

Another thing might try is posting at KG forums.. seems like KG_Scout "might" have been playing, or thinking of reloading some of the CC titles a year or 2 back when last talked with him. kent (kg_panzerschrek) is another u might ask as a possibility?
