Thanks so much, DBond, for refreshing the memories... I browsed the linked pages with a tear in my eye... Good old days of Frugal's with the fora so lively, many helpful posts regarding the subject matter, but lots of fun, too. (The Pilot's Bar, rep-whoring
etc.) I even found the screenshot thread I had started in the Jane's F/A-18 subforum, not archived, unfortunately. So many familiar nicknames and callsigns
All I can say is pity it's gone. BMS forums are fine but the Frugal's World atmosphere is probably impossible to reproduce anywhere. Thanks again, Sir!
