Oh Boy, do I sense a re-installation of GPL about to happen?

I think you might need a new thread here DB. Perhaps one called "SimHQ GPL League" biggrin

I had a look at your driver detail from my buddy list in GPLRank but it doesn't show any email or other unique ID info for your record that I see (see below). So you might have to search the dim dark depths of that memory and drag out your alternative log-in. There are lots of ranks in GPLRank especially given the mods that were popular, custom tracks, 1965 F1 cars, CANAM etc. Frankly, I'm surprised you didn't finish them all driving

8:04, just as I remembered smile

Thanks Mark for taking the time to do this. I sent a message to GPL Rank admin so will see if I can square away my issue. It's funny you say that, because I did think about running GPL again. Not sure I will, and I'm so much older now that I doubt I could improve any of those laptimes. Then again, maybe a faster computer would translate to faster laps haha.

Two things jump out at me from that last image. It surprises me to see that my Monaco PB is in the Brabby and that my Silverstone PB is in a race.

When's the last time you ran GPL? What's your rank these days, if you care to share.

I did indeed start another thread

https://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4539916/grand-prix-legends-were-you-fast#Post4539916

I thought it would be fun to see who around here raced GPL and how fast they were. Not sure anyone still has their laptimes, but we will see!

This is fun, to go back to that time and recall it all. Thanks Mark.

No problem at all DB. I'll post in the other thread and we can let this one return to Frugalsworld proper.

I miss Frugalsworld... When that Site/Forum died it took part of me with it. It was my goto site for Falcon for what seemed like forever back then... The last Microprose Patch, 1.08US... Then the Realism Patches, The PMC TFW Theaters, eRazor & the eTeam... The "High Res" 1024 x 768 pits from Paul Wilson and Aeyes... Ahhh those were the days!

Yes, a lot of us do. Of course you can't reply since you went and got yourself banned already. But it's not a long one smile

It was a different time, but if I compare it to what SimHQ is today it I miss it even more. All good things must end, or so they say.

The discussions were more spirited, had more depth, moderation was loose. At times I feel like a fish out of water here. I miss detailed AARs, ten-page discussions about missile flight profiles or the finer points of campaigns. It's all the lowest common denominator now. Falcon's old yeah, and I get it. But the forum is just so dead, and when new threads do pop it's about hardware or functionality. Bah, I've long accepted it, but every now and then you think about what a good flight sim forum was all about and it's natural to rue its demise.

Oh, well that's fine then. Didn't realize that was a thing. Thanks Cy.
