    A Leningrad Short Story: "Day 483" just published a new short story I wrote, set during the Siege of Leningrad. It's probably my darkest story yet. I thought the RO fans may appreciate it, given its historical setting. Click to read: "Day 483"

    RO-Mga | Beta 3

    This update has been a long time coming, as in "near-vaporware" amount of time. RO-Mga was the last map I made for the RO:CA mod and then I ported it over to Ostfront. I released a Beta 1 of it, started work on Beta 2... and then life got in the way. As some here know, I went off to become an...

    Makarov Pistol Video

    Here's a quick video I made when I took my Makarov out to the range this past weekend. I had ordered some ammo online and it turned out it was a type of ammo that's only allowed in outdoor ranges (Steel casing, steel bullet case, but it's not steel core). I'm currently up in Oklahoma City for...

    WWII & Russian Weaponry on "Lost"

    I guess it must be a testament to the ruggedness of Russian arms that the producers of Lost felt Russian guns are the one of the few types that can hold up on an isolated Pacific island. :) So far I've seen Sayid wielding an SKS for most of Season 3. The others had a stash of what looked like...

    I want one!!!

    This is just freaking cool: And I want one. Imagine - when you go away on vacation, just leave one of these in your backyard, triggered by a motion-detector. "Beware of Dog" my ass. More like "Beware of Armed Autonomous Mini-Gunship". :D

    My New (Air Traffic Control) Office

    As a few people here know, I'm working on becoming an air traffic controller. I just found out I'm getting assigned to Pensacola TRACON, which runs Pensacola NAS (where the Navy's Top Gun school and Blue Angels are based), Whiting NAS (which operates about 10% of the Navy's global aviation...

    Buttkicker Gamer: Anyone have one?

    I've been thinking about getting or asking for a Buttkicker Gamer for Christmas. I have to play a lot with headphones, so I figured it'd be a good way to get some good rumble/bass response going. Anybody have one of these or used one? I keep reading all kinds of great reviews on it. I can...

    Buy me a corporate jet... pretty please....

    This is not a joke, but man do I wish it was! Things like this give weight to the saying "There's a ****er born every minute." I've been doing some quick Googling and it doesn't appear that even the Roman Catholic Pope...

    This is a new release of Partisan Forest, modified enough that I decided to change the name slightly to "Partisan Forest Raid" (plus, people like raiding things, right? Refrigerators, panties, etc. :p). These are largely changes I banged out so I could submit the map to the 1st phase of the map...

    Flight Simulator X

    Just got Flight Simulator X yesterday. Anyone else give it a go? My thoughts so far: I've been reasonably impressed with the graphics and the interface improvements. The FPS is definitely lower than FS2004, but the scenery is much nicer. I've got a 256MB 6800GS so it's not the world's fastest...

    Spot the Airplane

    I was reading something online about the F-14, discussing how they're being placed at the Davis-Monatham AFB "boneyard" with the hope that some will be taken up by museums. I'd always heard about that boneyard, but never seen a good aerial photo of it. I decided to give it a look in Google...

    A Suggestion for the Helpful

    If you're feeling in a good and helpful mood while playing RO, change your tags to "[ROHelp]YourNameHere", "[HelpYou]YourNameHere", or something like that so newbies will know there's someone on there who can answer some questions. Also, when you hop on a server, it's good to ask the crowd if...
