BTW: got the following letter today from Professor Reina Pennington, author of 'Women, Wings and War' (and a former airforce officer herself). Great website for anyone interested in the Soviet air aces. The site is a WIP but particularly interesting to me was the account of Lilya Litviak/Katja Budanova's faithful mechanic Inna Pasportnikova, who accompanied them on all their postings, until their deaths.

http://lilylitviak.org/styled-21/styled-2/



Dear Fred,

I just launched the web site: http://lilylitviak.org. If you have a chance, take a look. It's very much a work in progress, so suggestions are appreciated. You'll find some info on Pasportnikova that you'll like. I haven't done a lot with Budanova yet.

Be sure to check out the page on the new book "Defending the Motherland." I believe that will have a lot of new information.


best wishes,

rjp

Great story telling, thank you.

Only wish we could create pilots and do proper Dead is Dead Campaign with Battle of Stalingrad. Maybe a 3rd party will come up with something useful.

Battle of Moscow will use the same campaign engine, so we will need a Pat Wilson or similar - no one has stepped up to the plate yet. I am worried the game might not have attracted the user base to justify someone spending the time needed; showing the perils of leaving single player development to your users instead of developing it yourself. Kind of a catch 22 - you go to market without a great SP campaign game, hoping your user base will develop it for you, but because you don't have a great SP game, the user base is too small...downward spiral ensues.

As of this post the screenshots are showing again. No idea for how long that will be valid though?

Not sure why, I certainly haven’t coughed up that ridiculous fee! Bigtime nostalgia reading it again tho!

ADDENDUM

"Photobucket has a new management team that wants to do the right thing. We are committed to earning back your trust and offering comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options for our customers. We’ve taken your feedback and made some changes to our pricing model that allows us to offer competitively priced plans that fit the needs of all of our customers.

For a limited time, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs."

So, it won't last... and wow, they decreased the price of a 3rd party link sharing account from 500 to 400 dollars. For only 100 dollars a year you can email links to family and friends...

I asked them what the cheapest plan is that allows you to link to images on boards and it is $30 a year allowing 400 pictures. $70 allows 5000. Not worth it when Imgur is free and not worth the effort of downloading and porting all those game images. sigh.

Move to postimage ( https://postimages.org/ ).

Here your pictures will be never deleted unless you want and it works 100000 times better than that Photobucket s..t!

It's completely free. wink

They have that very annoying "proudly hosted on photobucket" superimposed over every free image now, not just those in your account, and I suspect your warning is the next step towards them disabling everyone's images again.

Which is their prerogative. But their marketing guys/gals are not too smart. Never heard of a successful sales strategy called 'yell at your potential customer'.
