  1. PD has said it all. You will not meet a greater bunch of guys online. Best nio
  2. Blast!

    Yes Olham. You are correct.In certain hostelries in the City of London the same beer is sold in pewter tankards under the name Davy's Old Wallop. In sufficient quantities it can be a handful! best nio
  3. Blast!

    Stiffy, you have reminded me of one of my favourite advertisments extolling the benefits of ale over lager. http://bp3.blogger.com/_l3hE1L9RPR4/R4S-pMDZySI/AAAAAAAAB0o/IG4_wCd-aW4/s1600-h/adverts_lager_boy_poster.jpg With all due respect to its fans ,I never could get on with Budweiser after I read the ingredients and discovered rice was one of them.Saki beer! best nio
  4. There goes the neighbourhood! :nea: best nio
  5. Al I suppose you could always dial up one of the Aces even if you are not in any way related. I see you are now an Elite member here.Many congratulations! best nio
  6. You may be interested to learn that the service records of 99,000 RAF officers have been made available on the National Archives website here in the UK. The records were compiled in 1918 -1919 the time of the creation of the RAF but they apparently contain many details of earlier service in the RFC and the RNAS. Unfortunately each record costs £3.50 to download.Ouch! http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/air76.asp Best nio
  7. Thanks alot PD!

    I am pleased to report that Pilotsden is now fit and well again. Thank you to all who expressed concern. best nio
  8. ram question

    I am running 4 gb Corsair DDR2 800 MHz RAM in 4x1 format on my E6850, which is overclocked to 3.2 Ghz. It is rock steady. HTH best nio
  9. Oh I pop in from time to time to see what's cooking. I just don't say as much as I used to.There are plenty of folks around here to do the talking. Seriously though .Great job.Well done for how far you have travelled. best nio
  10. I should just like to say that you guys have surpassed even my wildest expectations by the superpatch. which I finally got around to loading tonight. I like it .I like it a lot. Take a well deserved bow. best nio
  11. My apology

    Some days you are the pigeon. Some days you are the statue. Today for you was a statue day. Me? I hope for more pigeon days! best nio
  12. I am not a meteorologist but I believe that it would be more accurate to say that there is less air pressure up there at 10,000 ft. I found this:- The atmosphere extends above the Earth's surface 100,000 ft, and generally remains consistent, with a 78% nitrogen/21% oxygen mixture to about 70,000 ft. Above that, it becomes more a mixture of helium and other gases. This being the case, and because the highest elevation we find on Earth is about 30,000 ft, we can't really say that oxygen decreases with height. However, what does decrease with height is air pressure. At sea level, the pressure of the atmosphere is 14.7 pounds per square inch (psi). At 18,000 feet the pressure is 7.34 psi. By 34,000 feet, the pressure is reduced to one-half the value at the 18,000 foot level (3.62 psi). It is this reduction in pressure (or in other words, the less dense air) that causes hypoxia, a condition during which the pressure in the blood is not sufficient enough to deliver oxygen to the brain. The barometric pressure at 10,000 ft is ~670 mb. Meteorologists often use the following scale when describing specific altitudes. For instance, they will say, "The freezing level is at 850 mb." 1000 mb ~ 360 feet (110 m) 850 mb ~ 5000 feet (1500 m) 700 mb ~ 10,000 feet (3000 m) 500 mb ~ 18,000 feet (5400 m) 250 mb ~ 34,000 feet (10,200 m) E & OE best nio
  13. Under Flanders Fields.Hell it is! best nio
  14. Correct! A history of the power-station, which is apparently still the largest brick building in Europe, is available here. http://www.batterseapowerstation.org.uk/hist1.html best nio
  15. I thought this may be of interest to those who follow and appreciate this splendid chap's work. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?t=14136 best nio
