Hi all,

Wife travels to Ireland tomorrow (5 days) and I almost forgot that they use different wall sockets / plugs there (i.e. as in UK - the rest of Europe mostly uses other standardized wall sockets / plugs)...


We in central Europe mostly use...

CEE 7/4 - German Schuko plug (grounded):

and

CEE 7/5 / CEE 7/7 - German/French (grounded):

and


CEE 7/17 - German/French 16 A/250 V (ungrounded):

and:


CEE 7/16 - Europlug (ungrounded):

BS 1363 - UK / Ireland:

shanilec and I started a Combat Series PBEM last night.

A short East Front Scenario. I am actually pretty excited about this, as I haven't played it in over a year. When I was younger, I used to play it for hours with my brothers.

Hope everyone is enjoying their start to the day.

Chilly here, but not as chilly as it was this weekend.


I'll be downloading your scenario over the noon hour. The weather outside is perfect for East Front. You chose wisely. 39F. right now; with a cold north wind, low grey fast moving clouds and drizzle. The stage is set for tonights turn.[;)]




Chickenboy -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/9/2012 6:31:06 PM)

So, Leo-

Are you putting in a plug for the CEE 7/4?




Dixie -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/9/2012 6:38:23 PM)

Back from work. It was a good un today, finally managed to remove a troublesome rad fairing (a day and a half!) from the MkII Spit and took off the oil cooler and carb intake.

Also got pinged for Remembrance Day parade. Hopefully I'll get the local village rather than Boston, but we shall see what the SWO decides for me. It'll be the first time I've worn my #1 uniform since 2007, I still fit in it as well [8D] Not bad considering that it was made for me in 2004.




Schanilec -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/9/2012 9:08:53 PM)

The weather just couldn't resist. Snowed just as I leaving home from lunch.[sm=nono.gif]
Alas, Indian Summer was just a pipe dream.[8|]




Dixie -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/9/2012 9:18:05 PM)

Hmmm, I just googled a song I remember from my youth, The Lincolnshire Poacher. I was not ready for the weirdness that it brought up...

Awww...buck up, buttercup. Any time between now and the end of October is a possibility. Thereafter, I'd agree-you're hosed through April.

More like May or June the last few years.[sm=nono.gif] 50's is sure going to be sweet this weekend.
Now off for home. I saw that Jeff sent me 'Claw of the Tiger'. Winter 1943; Jeff really knows how to set the mood.
Be gentle olde boy. This is my first ever PBEM. Dinner and a movie would be nice.[:D]

Quiet today.




Historiker -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/10/2012 8:27:04 PM)

Searched about an hour for my Kindle for the flight [:@]
I had it in my hands in the morning... - I hate this!
At least I found this....

To brighten my mood, I watched the famous "Libyan one way rocket launcher" at 0:12 in the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=-RGhBzGC6Js&NR=1




Historiker -> RE: THE THREAD!!! (10/10/2012 8:28:08 PM)

Almost ready to leave. Put a Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios and a Bolivar Royal Corona to my luggage to spend the time at the airport enjoying myself.

Will have to wait from 0:30 AM to 6:00 AM in the airport... [:(]

Be careful. If it's the Munich airport they'll go through your luggage and take anything they fancy. [:(]

Kinda looks like a 'Road Warrior' movie.[:D]

I've flown through Munchen before. They have some passable bars / restaurants there. Just start your party a little early, Herr Historiker! [sm=00000436.gif]

Why do I suddenly have a mental image of Historiker leaping out of the emergency exit of a plane? I imagine him leading a group of angry passengers looking for the bastages who rifled through their bags. He has a Cohiba gripped in his teeth, a sharpened spork in his hand and blood in his eye. The action would be recorded as the "Passenger Insurrection."
