COD 2
Been playing COD 2 for a few months now. Not too many of these servers left either. It sure is a lot more run and gun versus the team play of the original. Can beat Gomer's old base assault maps.

World of Tanks, anyone?
Hey y;all,

Sorry for not being around for a while...then again, nobody else is either. XD

I've actually taken a break for a month or two from UO to play World of Tanks. I had played this in the beta, and it seems some issues are fixed now. My name on there is Mr_Lizard.


Rather than grinding like hell forever to get to tier 10, I instead have a stable of tier 1-2 tanks & tank destroyers. Lot more fun, but with the drawback of only having 3 maps to play. Higher tiers get more maps. I did have a tier 4 B1 but OMG, the French tanks suck so badly. Sure, it's to be expected but sheesh, that thing was nothing but pain. Slow as hell, meh gun, good armor but huge tracks. So, every battle it was like "They got my tracks. They're circling me. I'm dead". :P Especially since secondary armaments can't fire, so it's 75mm howitzer became a big weak spot instead of an advantage. Later the French tanks loose armor but gain big guns & lots of speed.

Don't let that deter you from the rest though. The Soviets go from "meh" to "argh" to "ooh, this is cool!". The Brits & Americans are an odd mix at first, up & down, then the Americans start getting serious firepower as it goes along. German tanks are pretty much all good, depending. Chinese are British at first then switch to Soviet. Not sure about the later British tanks.

You can also play as self propelled artillery, but I got bored with that quickly.

Anyways, check it out. They're making World of Warplanes and World of Warships also, hoping to tie them all in together some day into a giant game. Now if only they'd stick UO on there for the infantry it'd kick ten kinds of ass. :)

Doolittle Raiders lift spirits sky-high at commemoration
4 of last survivors of air raid on Japan reunite

Image
Retired Air Force Master Sgt. Ed Horton on Tuesday honors the memory of Lt. Col. Horrace Crouch by turning his goblet upside down during the 64th Doolittle Raider reunion in Dayton, Ohio. Crouch died Dec. 21. (U.S. Air Force)

DAYTON, Ohio — The roar of B-25 bomber engines still echoed overhead as 96-year-old Richard E. Cole slowly walked to the podium Wednesday afternoon.

The Army Air Forces veteran, one of the five remaining survivors of Doolittle’s Tokyo Raid, was unfazed by the pomp and circumstance around him, as well as the rock star welcome he and his fellow Raiders received at the 70th anniversary celebration of the famous April 18, 1942, mission, hosted by the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

He quietly told the crowd that he never expected the daring raid, the nation’s first military response against the Japanese homeland four months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, to make him a legend.

“We all shared the same risk. We had no realization of the positive effect of our mission,” said Mr. Cole, his voice cracking while a worn blue baseball cap shielded his eyes from the blazing sun. “We’re grateful we had the opportunity to serve, and mindful that the nation benefited from our service.”

Four of the five surviving Raiders - Mr. Cole, Edward J. Saylor, Thomas C. Griffin and David J. Thatcher - reunited this week to share their stories with other veterans, history buffs, members of the media and anyone else who showed up. Raider Robert L. Hite, 92, was too ill to make the trip to Dayton.

On Thursday night, the four men once again will take part in a personal tradition started by their former leader, Lt. Col. James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle. Inside the sprawling Air Force Museum sits a glass case filled with 80 gleaming goblets, one representing each Raider, with a bottle of Hennessy Very Special Cognac - given to the Raiders by Doolittle - waiting to be opened by the last two survivors.

The goblets were on display inside the U.S. Air Force Academy, where they served as a reminder to younger airmen of the heroism of their predecessors.

“I was humbled, as a cadet, as an 18-year-old kid, walking by that Doolittle Raider display,” said Lt. Col. David M. Bachler, who teaches history at the academy. “It’s great for the cadets to have this living history” in front of them at the reunion.

Minutes before Mr. Cole’s brief speech, a squadron of 20 B-25s took off from airfields at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The planes soared above the crowd several times, drawing raucous cheers from an audience scattered across the grounds. Many were moved to tears by the tribute, which showcased the plane that made U.S. military history 70 years ago.

The Doolittle Raid, launched from the USS Hornet about 650 miles off the coast of Japan, was the first time B-25s had taken off from the deck of a Navy aircraft carrier. Doolittle, who piloted the first plane with Mr. Cole riding shotgun, had less than 400 feet of runway to work with. After dropping their bombs on six Japanese cities, including Tokyo, the plan called for the Raiders to land in China, where American planes would be waiting for them.

But Japanese scout ships spotted them 200 miles before their designated launch point, meaning the 16 crews likely wouldn’t have enough fuel to make it to the air fields. Fully expecting to die, the Raiders never flinched, and their bravery set a lasting example.

“You don’t hesitate when you have a job to do,” said L.B. Comley, 82, a Dayton native and fellow Air Force veteran who came to see the Raiders in person. “They did one heck of a job.”

Each Raider has unique stories to tell about both the mission and the harrowing events that followed. Mr. Griffin, 95, went on to serve in Europe and spent 22 months in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Mr. Saylor and the rest of his five-man crew hiked across 100 miles of Chinese countryside, all the while being hunted by Japanese soldiers.

Mr. Thatcher’s plane crashed into waist-deep water just off the Chinese coast, and he was later awarded the Silver Star for gallantry for pulling his crewmates out of the wreckage and bandaging their wounds.

Yet those personal accounts went untold for many years, as the Raiders viewed their role in World War II history as just another mission. Even close family members said it took decades before they learned everything.

“He never talked about it. I didn’t find out about it until I was 45 years old,” said 59-year-old Becky Meadinger, Mr. Thatcher’s daughter. “When you’re living with him every day, that’s just not the kind of stuff that you talk about.”

Ms. Meadinger said she finally heard the full account while listening to her father give a speech at a veterans memorial dedication in Mr. Thatcher’s home state of Montana.

The annual reunion celebration, Mr. Cole said, isn’t just an opportunity for the survivors to relive the grand sortie; it’s also a solemn occasion, one that brings fond memories of friends rushing back to their minds.

“It’s a reminder to us of the friendship we had with those who have gone before,” Mr. Cole said.

Band of Brothers' soldier dies at 90 in Wash.
Band of Brothers' soldier dies at 90 in Wash.


BURLINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Lynn D. "Buck" Compton, a veteran whose World War II exploits were depicted in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," has died, his family said.

Compton died Saturday in Burlington, Wash., after having a heart attack last month, the family told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/AmfhYe ) in a story Tuesday.

In January, nearly 200 guests, including actors from the miniseries, attended his 90th birthday party, the Skagit Valley Herald (http://is.gd/XScV1b ) reported.

"To us he wasn't really a war hero, he was just a hero, period," Tracy Compton told the Herald.

Lynn Compton also is remembered for his legal career in California. He headed the team that prosecuted Sirhan B. Sirhan for the slaying of Robert F. Kennedy and was appointed to the 2nd District Court of Appeal in 1970 by Gov. Ronald Reagan. He retired from the bench in 1990.

He was awarded a Silver Star and a Purple Heart during World War II. But it wasn't until later in life that he became famous for his military service as a first lieutenant in Easy Company after the unit parachuted into France on D-Day in 1944. Historian Stephen E. Ambrose's 1992 best seller about the unit was made into the 2001 TV series.

"His career as a prosecutor and a judge overrode his military career until 'Band of Brothers' came out, and then it just went crazy," daughter Syndee Compton said.

Compton was embarrassed by the attention at his birthday party at Skagit Regional Airport that was attended by children of other Band of Brothers veterans.

"All I can say is it's flattering — and kind of embarrassing," Compton told the Herald. "We didn't expect anything more than those other guys (in the war). We're celebrating longevity more than anything."

The guests included "Band of Brothers" actors Michael Cudlitz, James Madio, Richard Speight Jr. and Neal McDonough, who portrayed Compton in the miniseries.

McDonough recalled meeting with Compton the day before he flew to London to begin filming "Band of Brothers," and later peppering him with questions about his time during the war.

"When you play a historical figure, you have to do it right and tell the truth," McDonough told the Times, recalling that Compton told him he was just doing his job.

"He'd say that's what soldiers do," said McDonough, who kept in touch with Compton and nicknamed his 6-year-old son Morgan "Little Buck" in his honor.

Tracy Compton said her father thought McDonough did a wonderful job portraying him and that "he laughed and said Neal was better-looking than he ever was."

Compton was born in Los Angeles on Dec. 31, 1921. He majored in physical education and minored in education at UCLA, where he lettered in football and baseball. He started at guard in the 1943 Rose Bowl game against Georgia and was selected all-conference catcher while captain of the baseball team in 1942.

He also participated in the ROTC program and entered active service in February 1943 at age 21.

After the war, he became a Los Angeles police officer and worked his way through Loyola Law School. He was a detective in the Central Burglary Division before joining the district attorney's office in 1951. He was assistant district attorney when District Attorney Evelle J. Younger chose him as his chief deputy in 1966.

Compton's memoir "Call of Duty: My Life Before, During and After the Band of Brothers," written with Marcus Brotherton, was published in 2008.

His wife, Donna, died in 1994. Along with his two daughters, he is survived by four grandchildren.

Gomer's tank is out of diesel!
As you can see we have officially shut down the Toasterfest as well as the Toasterfest II. I would like to thank GomerPyle for allowing us to badge his server as the Fest for the past year. We've had a few good battles here and there, but we never could spark that fire we once had as a clan. These things have a life cycle I suppose. Thanks again for letting us give it one last shot at keeping the game alive. I think a majority of the servers left out there all use Gomer's maps so anywhere we go will feel a little like home.

I hope to see you knuckle heads out there on some BAS server somewhere. Even those of you who have retired from the clan, drop us a line from time to time.

The Toasterfest is Back!
With a big thanks to GomerPyle, we have revitalized the Toasterfest. He has donated a tank out of the ODND garage and is letting us paint it up in Toasterfest fashion. The Fest is back in action with a few changes. It will be named PCGO | PC Gamers Online on the server list and will have a mix of game types plus a few custom maps. It will also be running with AWE 2.1 and Speedy Boots. Changes might me made as we go along, but for now it is pretty close to the original Fest.

I'm back, for good this time.
Ok well I'm finally back as the movie I was working on is down to it's last couple of days of shooting. I started to update my BBC2 game before I left and found that it was done when I got home at 5am this morning. I fired up the game and was able to play a full round by myself without any lag. I then jumped on Canadian server with people and scored my first few kills in the last few months. I played BBC2 again later in the day and have found that I can play without lag as long as my settings are low for now. So that means I can re-setup the BBC2 server and the Teamspeak server will also need to be setup again. I thank you all for sticking by this clan with everything that has happened and it's good to see that this clan continues to be strong. Well I'm going to go do some killing and I will talk more later.

BBC2 and Teamspeak Server
Well boys looks like I missed an e-mail from Gameservers telling me my credit card didn't go through(which it should have) and they closed our servers. I e-mailed them when I got the "Account Closed" e-mail and told them they made a mistake and they should run the card again. It worked that time but I will need to setup the servers again so bear with me they should be active soon.

Look forward to seeing some of you mooks .
I will rotate mainly deathmatch and capture the flag while we build ( i am working on capture the booze barrels as we speak) but the longer term is to man up for siege and battle matches .

Bow your heads folks!
I have noticed today that PCGO Toasterfest is no more. It is now listed as a dead server. Let's have a moment of silence for our loss. The good news is that my BBC2 server will be up in two days if the EA/Dice servers can handle the load. Our new TS Server is located at ts55.gameservers.com:8771, I don't believe there is no password to log on if there is let me know and I'll fix that. I can't wait to hear from you all.

Changes to www.pcgoclan.com starting NOW...
To all,

I am making the changes to the url www.pcgoclan.com right now.

Please realize that the DNS servers and website forwarding make take up to 72 hours to completely register all changes and I am hopeful that all glitches will be ironed out... eventually.

Because I have to change the DNS servers, I am going to attempt to make it so that www.pcgoclan.com redirects to this website/forum. However, www.pcgoclan.com will likely not be the base part of the url. In other words, when you type www.pcgoclan.com into your browser, it will redirect to pcgoclan.userboard.org. I will try to do this so that your browsers don't get their panties in a wad, but this is pushing the limits of my internet knowledge.

Thank you for your patience.
