Topics I've Started
28 June 2013 - 11:08 AMHope I am posting in right spot since the forum got rearranged on me
So The Ford Report called out Tina Ruzzo (RPA), Tha Wolf (YouTube e-celeb), Necro (from SAS), and a few others to face off against Dale Ford and Lawrence "TB" Wright. The two sides almost never have the same view points on things and most don't think that those who were called out would even agree to the game. One side even has a tendency to ban you from their Facebook group and block you if you disagree with them.
I don't know about anyone else, but I would love to see this match up happen. I know of several others who would love to see and participate in it.

15 April 2011 - 10:10 AMBasically I have made several attempts over the last couple years to either organize a semi-serious scenario team or just get a group of players together for a particular event. With the team effort it would fall apart when one person started to think they couldn't afford to go to an event four months out. With getting a group together they would be all for it, but when it came time to start sending in money it was "I'll send it out next week." Last season I decided to take a break from trying to organize anything and figure out which direction I wanted to go. Because life happened my conscious break from organizing anything turned into pretty decent break from the sport. I still did a lot of thinking during the season.
Now it is a new season and I have a pretty good idea which way I want to go. Part of it comes from reading blackrain's sponsorship thread. That is what really got me thinking. Whenever I go to events I am pretty much a one man show. The few times I did take another player with me, I still ended up being by myself. While talking to my wife and other players I have realized that while I may be part of a team effort the majority of my play style is done solo. All I really have to do now is decide if I want to officially become a one man team or if I just want to be one of many "free agents" that are out there.
If I do officially become a one man team there are a few things to figure out. The main one I am concerned with at this point is the team name. Basically do I refer to myself in the third person or do I come up with an easily identifiable team name. Many of us know that blackrain and Team Blackrain are one and the same. Also many who attend Viper events probably know that One Woman Army is player with the call sign Phoenix. If I go the third person route I will obviously shorten it to Team DarkShadow as opposed to the whole screen name. If I go with the team name approach I will more than likely go with Screwball, One Each (those on my facebook might get the reference).
16 August 2010 - 05:37 AMWhat a weekend I had. My wife and I went down to Cincinnati, OH for my best friend's wedding. When we were about halfway there the car started to over heat. Fortunately my wife and I were getting hungry so we stopped to eat and let the car cool down. I checked things out and we had plenty of coolant. While checking things out I also noticed a slight cut in the side wall of the tire. The cut was not there on Friday morning when I had the tire pressure checked. Since we were halfway there we decided to limp it there. I called my friend to let him know what was going on and he found a place for us to get a couple tires for cheap. He also picked up a thermostat for the car since that is what I thought it was.
Saturday morning I replaced the thermostat in a hurry. There was a lot that had to be done yet. When he went to Kentucky to take care of things for the wedding his car broke down. His belt tensioner for the serpentine belt broke. I ended up having to go to his rescue and my car was over heating again. Turned out I got the o-ring seal for the thermostat caught in the housing and it created a leak. Because getting my friend's car taken care of ate up a lot of time we left my car overnight. We limped his car to a mechanic after getting the belt back on. While the mechanic was working on his car we got a ride from his in-laws (well soon to be in a few hours at that time) to get a rental car.
At the reception his father-in-law told him the car was fixed and ready to be picked up. After the reception my friend, his new wife, my wife, and I all headed to get his car. I borrowed the car for the evening and the next morning I put a new o-ring seal in my car. All was good, or so I thought.
His grandfather-in-law lives about 5 min from where my car was left. We all convoyed over there and my car overheated again. There were a lot of phone calls after that point. I was told to pull the thermostat and test it by putting it in a pan with water over the stove. I tested it and the it opened up. At that point we were leaning towards the water pump. Back to the car to find the pump. Turns out the water pump is ran off the timing belt and it is a pain to get to. I was told by a backyard mechanic, a certified mechanic, my wife, and my friend to take it to a garage to get it fixed.
All that leaves a few problems. How to my wife and I get home? How is our car going to get to the shop? Well the answers are simple.
My friend got the rental for a whole week at the coaxing of his grandfather-in-law, who put it on his credit card. My friend does not know this yet, but his mother gave the grandfather $200 for a rental. My friend and his new wife offered their car for my wife and I to get home. So that takes car of us getting home and the happy couple returning the rental car.
Now the only issue is how to get my overheating car to the garage. Well the happy bride has an uncle that lives across the street from her grandfather. He offered to take the car to the mechanic, which is basically around the corner, this morning after he got off work. I left my information and the car key with them.
I will be getting a call to find out what is going on with the car. When I do I will set things up so I can pick up the car on Friday. My wife and I will spend the evening with my friend and his new wife. We will then head out some time on Saturday with a car in working condition.

This event is an alternative history to a ten day NATO command post exercise conducted in 1983… It is considered by many historians to be the closest the world has come to nuclear war…
With President Ronald Reagan taking the oath of office in January of 1981, the politics of the Cold War began to take a much darker turn. Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Deterrence was an idea of the past; one that had not only resulted in the largest arms race in human history but struck fear into the hearts of all peoples.
Operation: Able Archer 83 was launched on November 2nd, 1983 as one of the largest ‘simulated’ military exercises in history. Able Archer spanned the globe as psychological operations near Soviet airspace in the Pacific made radar operators nervous. While Europe endured ‘mock’ alert statuses, as well as increased DEFCON levels.
The exercise, according to the military brass at the Pentagon as well as numerous CIA agents was suppose to end quietly on November 11th, ten days after it started. History however, tells us otherwise…
On November 8th 1983, a false alarm, caused by an error in the Soviet Early Warning System (Oko), detected the launch of two American Pershing II IRBM’s from West Germany. At the same time, an unknown civilian aircraft crossed into Soviet airspace over the Kamchatka peninsula triggered hysteria from within the soviet military. Soviet premiere Yuri Andropov was being treated for renal failure when the alarm was raised and was not informed of the quickly escalating situation.
Soviet radar operators, watched the false alarm from within their bunker at the Serpukhov-15 command post outside Moscow, not knowing the error in their system would cost the world dearly. Communications intercepted from Serpukhov-15 to the ICBM facilities in Kapustin Yar indicated the launch of a SS-17 ‘Spanker’ at approximately 12:35 PM local time.
The NATO early warning systems did their job in alerting the West German people of an incoming Soviet missile. However, it was not enough. Failure on the part of the West German government as well as poorly led NATO civilian evacuation plans caused the loss of life to be high… At 12:58 PM, the Soviet SS-17 landed a direct hit on the Bundestag Parliament building in Bonn.
Subsequent missile launches from unknown sites across the Soviet Union destroyed American Pershing II missile sites in Western Europe… Sporadic skirmishes have broken out between the East-West German border…
