  1. No idea what that's about... https://www.digicert.com/help/
  2. I haven't done nearly as much flying as I like to... Something about having fun in real life. Still, those are some nice shots.
  3. S! I'm going to be removing all email accounts on the WW domain that have not been verified or the owners have not responded to repeated requests to update passwords. If you had a WW email account you were using, and it's been removed, contact me to recreate it.
  4. S! Afraid I won't be in tonight. Fly well, cover each other and do all the things.
  5. The video worked and showed how cool the mod is... Nice to be able to understand the AI for a change! But the .ogg files are not recognized by the forum as media files, so those links defaulted to download versus open some media program. At least for me.
  6. Yeah, don't ask me why. But at this point I'm not willing to go through the pain of re-linking the stats page anytime soon.
  7. Radio Shack was my electronics bits and pieces store of choice, only because there always seemed to be one nearby. Been gone for years. I grew up wearing clothing from Sears. It was the biggest store in town. Gone. In it's place are medical offices, sub-contracted bits of the Mayo system, charging exorbitant fees for minimal product. My daughter worked at the local Lowe's for about three years. Until the local store closed. The chain is still there, but they are regrouping and consolidating. Wal Mart has closed several stores in southern Minnesota. Now there are Super Centers in the larger towns, but the smaller towns have little shopping choices. The most recent chain closing regionally has been Shopko. The rest of you may not know the store, but the chain has been a staple in this area for decades. All their remaining stores are closing June 1. The local mall has huge store vacancies... Heidelbergers, Sears, JC Penny's, have all closed. There's been nothing to fill the void. There are many smaller shops, but after talking with one of the small shop owners, he's made it clear that his time is limited. Floor space rent has tripled, while sales have been edging lower every month. Too easy to buy online. But that only means you can never hold an item in your hands before purchase, to feel the quality, or cheapness, of it's manufacture. Window shopping these days is done on Windows. And it sucks.
  8. Yeah, the biggest change was simply removing the server-stats linking. I find it hard to imagine there's anything nefarious with that, but if it has any link in the generated pages to something Russian ... Well, that may be enough to send the bots off on a rampage.
  9. Timing of that should be Jan 1, '45, if that option is available.
  10. Ping @VonBrinson and anyone else reading this topic, I moved this topic into the public IL-2 BoS area (The current rendition of the IL-2 series sim) from the old IL-2 1946 forum area. No harm, no foul, just wanted to ensure stuff is posted into the relevant area.
  11. We're aware of that BS, feel free to bypass or not. Google and Mozilla are being asses.
  12. @WWCraven Yes, I have two SSD's working, but not currently in RAID. One for the OS and one for Prepar3D. I highly recommend using the SSD for the OS and for whatever game/sim you use the most. The speed improvement over fast HDD is easily noticeable. Add a couple high capacity HDD's to a pair of 500gb SSD's and you'll feel like you have a new system.
  13. Hm, nope... toe brake travel is zero % dead zones. Rudder axis is 4% for both center dead zone and edge (end) zones.
  14. I've got the CH Pro Pedals and have set a small area of dead zone at both the top and bottom of the toe-brake travel. I'm not on my home PC else I'd show a screen shot of the setup. Works well for both flight sim stuff and for use as car pedals in Asetto Corsa.
  15. It's not an issue with the Invision software, as best I can tell. There is a new security update for Invision that I will get installed asap. But I don't think our sites issue is there, I think it's a file that got placed into the vault. I just can't find it.
  16. Yeah, my head hurts from the BS provided by Google. Yandex is basically a Google mirror, so... *shrug* As soon as I was able to get onto this site from my work computer (my employers block everything that could possibly be an issue, including their own intranet stuff quite often) I knew Google was full of shit. Our host did not provide any sort of list of files to be cleaned... They will gladly run scans for $40/month additional fee for as long as we need them. Our contract with this host is due to renew in October, I can guarantee we will be looking into a new host before then. All old scripts/software have been removed from the file structure (includes old phpBB, CopperMine Gallery, WordPress installations <had two of them> for a couple months now. Only remaining software 'active' is Invision Community. ICS has been completely updated this month by uploading all new files to support the latest sub-version of their software. It's possible they have a recalcitrant "0" trying to be a "1" somewhere, but I doubt it. Have not customized anything that requires hand-editing of code. I'm simply trying to ensure that Invision is running solidly before I tinker with it. The only add-on is a commercial theme ("Brave", officially supported and available through the ICS web store, and is the dark theme or skin visitors see by default.) The only change to that was me installing it correctly with a vanilla parent and a customized 'child' (by addition of the WW logo only so far. I can go back to using the default ICS theme (white/light skin) and see if that still causes Google to shit on the floor. And no... I'm not intending for the site to appear racist, just making the site is easily user-friendly for those who like either white on black or black on white text. Passwords for all admin operations pass as "strong" or better. My personal admin access passwords are all ** characters or more. They're not infallible, but they're not "password123" either. We've had Duck's Server Stats app linked for about a month or more, would not expect that to act up, but it is on Duck's private server. We only link to it. (Russian built though, so... ? ) Will keep digging, obviously something is amiss but damned if I know what. Thank you for the positives!
  17. S! Icy, First off, those are post attachments , so they'll only be seen here in this thread. If you want to upload them in the Paint Shed, go here: https://www.wingwalkers.org/files/category/32-pzkpfw-vi-ausfh1-tiger/ ... and select "Submit a File". Add whatever description you want to the file. Also, I'd suggest putting the .DDS file into a .zip archive. It may not compress the file much (if any) but it is a more universal "package" for files. If you really want to get fancy, create a complete file tree where the .DDS file is supposed to end up, within the zip archive, and add instructions to unzip to the main IL-2 BoX folder. Be sure to not include the main IL-2 folder as many folks (like myself) did not install to the default folder name.
  18. Another lap around the nearest star completed, congratulations, @WWNavyGunner!!
  19. Got in to check the reply from Geezer's submitted trouble ticket. No help at all...
  20. Fresh cup of coffee, going back through my notes to see if I have the keys to the customer service area.
  21. Goober is a lot of things, but I never thought he'd become a verb. LOL!
  22. The message I quoted above was from the Lunar Pages (our hosting provider) Wiki ... and yes, it's likely five years or more old. I usually use Chrome (no issue, dark padlock) but also use Firefox (big red MALWARE SITE WARNING and would not let me click through to the site even after clicking "I understand the risk" , kept re-directing me to some Make The Internet World Safe By Signing Up And Buying My Product type of site (utter bullshit IMO.) Tried Edge, but it kept dropping to desktop and wouldn't connect to anything.
