Just a note to let my friends and members here know, I'll not be posting or moderating anymore, due to illness.
NFI due to the public nature of the internet.
A PM to OG will be the only contact I'll get.
I've got a few weeks left.
Lots of things to take care of, selling the house.....etc....no time to post.

Appreciate all the friends and great people I''ve known here.

Oldgrognard and CyBerkut can certainly take up the slack.
The keys are on the file cabinet next to the door guys.

Time for me to leave.
I'm happy for the quality time I've had.
Seen and done way more than anyone should have.
Lived during the "Best of Times".
We should ALL be grateful.

The only bad thing is, when you leave, you hurt the ones you love.

There are people here who will be with me till the day I leave.
Thank you.

Sorry to read this Murph.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I’m so sorry to hear this Murphy. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that everything works out for the best somehow. I don’t believe that hope is ever, ever completely gone.

Geez! I just finished reading the post by Airdrop. Sorry to hear it.

S! The sorry thing about getting old is people start leaving you until its your turn. By that time, I'm not sure I'm going to mind journey. D@mned it if don't creep up on you sooner than you think.

I'm very saddened to hear this Murphy,and about Airdrop too. I'm not the praying type but my best wishes go to you both and your families.

Sorry to hear about this, but such is the nature of life, I guess. The prayer list is getting longer and longer. God bless!

This is one of those times that I don't mind it when the doctors get it wrong.

Very sad indeed...my best wishes to you Murphy.

Gives way and suddenly it’s day again

Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph

Wow, very sad to hear Murphy, and anything I could say in a forum post seems inadequate, but I can't help but say that I hope your time is spent with the people you love and who care about you, and I wish only the best for you and your family.

Murphy, I'm so sorry to hear this news. My mind went back over the years, our PMs and discussions.

Thanks again, I appreciate those discussions, and your contributions on this forum. And thanks again for your work in real life. You and your loved ones will be in my thoughts and prayers.

It seems like only yesterday that you and I were fumbling our way thru our first PC builds with the help of the folks on the Hardware and Software forum.

You know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I know there is a P-51D waiting for you at the other end my friend.

Thank you for being a friend I sadly have never really met, for all these years.

You will be missed Murphy, you will be missed...
