got it in one, Krytom!

UAF is the United Armed Forces, Lt is infact Lieutenant, and Brenton is my callsign obviously.
The UAF were once the best FS2002 flight group on the net, but sadly they have disbanded (I
wonder if I would get into trouble if I restarted them myself ;) )
Their website is still alive (just) at http://www.uafhq.tk (The site is fairly rubbish, it's got a banner
sticking out of the side and most of it is under construction)

By the way, throwing it back at you Krytom, how did you get your nickname?  Was it anything to
do with Kryten from Red Dwarf?

Hi Brenton,

Been meaning to ask someone who is in this kind of group, like you and Pierre. How does that
work?? Is it just a discussion group or is it a multiplayer community? And if so, do you what, fly in
pairs?? The whole virtual airline concept is kind of alien to me...

Cheers,

you lot ask some difficult questions :pfff:
OK, the way VAs and VMs work...
:wonder: how can I explain it?
Basically, you join a VA (or VM) and you come online at certain times (i.e. for missions or
assignments).  Depending on how well you fly the mission or assignment, that affects your points
or rank etc.  I don't know much about VAs because I've never really been in one, only a VM.
That's it, really.  To find out properly, you really have to join one.

Hope that helped ;)

P.S: VA = Virtual Airline

Well, didn't mean to make it difficult :)

Sounds pretty much like X-Wing Alliance fighter group my friend is a member of. I guess only the
nature of "mission" changes, be it, bomb a site, kill a few Tie Fighters or fly a cargo haul from Hong
Kong to Kadena AFB :)

I can imagine it for VM, but I guess I thought for the VA you actually have people who take on the
role of ATC, and then you have to be careful not to bump into another Boeing while taxing to
runway :)

Tnx

Well Brenton, you also got it in one.
Except for the fact that the Krytom account is actually shared between my best friend and i. We
set it up like that when my e-mail was down and we kept it like this. Both our names are Tom, and
we are fans of Red Dwarf. So it came together quite well. :music:

Read this and laugh Krytom...  This is a bit of dialogue from Series 3:

KRYTEN:  I can fit a number of add-ons into my groinal socket.
LISTER: So, you can fit an egg-whisk and whip up a Spanish omelette?
KRYTEN: Yes, sir, but it's surprising how few people are prepared to eat them.

Another bit of dialogue (series unknown):

HOLLY: We need some more supplies
LISTER: Like what?
HOLLY: Fresh cows' milk.  Ran out of that years ago.
LISTER: What milk are we on now then?
HOLLY: Emergency backup.  We're on the dogs' milk.
LISTER (chokes): Dogs' milk?!
HOLLY: It's good stuff, dogs' milk.
LISTER: Why didn't you tell me?
HOLLY: What, and spoil your breakfast?
HOLLY: One of the good things about dogs' milk is that when it's off, it smells exactly the same as
when it's fresh.
LISTER: (makes noise of disgust)
HOLLY: Also, it lasts longer than any other milk.
LISTER: Why?
HOLLY: No b*gg*r'll drink it!

I'm also a Red Dwarf fan!

P.S. I've got a skutter here asking me for the address of the John Wayne fan club ;)

Have you seen the T-Rex episode(s) in series nine? I liked the cow vindaloo. :)
And 'Backwards', that episode is brilliant. (Series three.) :)
Do you know of the BBC releasing any more series on DVD any time soon? It is hardly ever on TV
anymore. :rant:

(It's good to know that Red Dwarf is popular.)

Backwards is tnaillirb and yes, the BBC are releasing some more on DVD.  And no, I haven't seen the T-Rex episode
yet.
