  1. Old?!? I like to think of it as well-preserved, especially given all of the high ABV potables I have brewed and consumed of late.
  2. My name is Admiral Keth, and I am a CM:BB fanatic. I have been WoW-free for 27 days now.
  3. /boggle?!? Whaaaa? When did this happen? But, but, but, but.... Waitaminit...I lurvs WKRP..mmmm...Loni Anderson...<drool> A) You needs to pull from me stable of 26 recipes...yes, they are online...can ye find 'em? If you can find a photo of me with mash rake and a Luftwaffe Feldm├╝tze, that's me. Yes, it's out there. 2) Folks have to come an get 'em. The ATF takes a dim view of shipping across state lines...yes, I have a very good reason to not ship it. iii) Profit..no, that's not the reason.
  4. I bugger off for a few years and you mangy gits are still around? Yep, it's the ol' Admiral. No one was more pleased and surprised than I to see that the community is alive, well, and thriving...well, except for the lot in the Peng thread...they are looking a bit disreputable. Belay that; they have always been disreputable...they wear it like a badge of honor. I am gratified and honored that The Scenario Depot II is doing well. I was also delightfully surprised to return to see the immenent release of the new new CM:BN; yes, I have enthusiastically pre-ordered and I have been playi
  5. All, Additional posts have been made to Web Hosting Forum. I am far from alone in this mess. If any of the CM community has sites hosted by any of Gunnel's shell companies, I would recommend finding a new web host ASAP. It appears as if more angry web developers are filing FBI fraud claims. Web Host Forum Link 2 has more details on specific shell hosts.
  6. All, Thank you very much for the kind words. I have always considered Combat Mission to be "the thinking man's wargame". The community which endorses and continuously supports not only Combat Mission itself, but the associated fan sites, are the very best friends any wargaming community could offer. With regards to resurrecting The Scenario Depot; I'm going to consider it over the next couple of weeks. Allow me time to acclimatize to Boeing and settle into a routine. In the spirit of "getting back on the horse" I could, at length, be convinced to rebuild from scratch, incorporatin
  7. All, The worst has come to pass. My web host, without so much as a "by your leave", has vanished. Email, database, files...all gone without any notice. The support phone number he provides is useless...the vmail box is full, preventing additional complaints (apparently I'm not alone in my extreme ire). Numerous emails go unanswered. You have no idea how angry and embarrassed I am at this point. I feel as though I have let down the CM community. I genuinely apologize. Those of you familiar with web hosting may recognize the web host - Steve Gunnels of FIDPAC. If any of you have si
  8. i've just visited the site and was wondering about the same thing as the above post - i want to play and review cmbo battles best played against the AI </font>
  9. All, This is one of those features that will be implemented in SDv3. Additional files, such as screen shots, supporting text or pdf files, and other scenario-related material will be uploadable by the author to author-specific folders. However, landing a job is my first priority, as I have other mouths to feed than my own.
  10. All, At the moment, I have no intention of allowing The Scenario Depot to fall by the wayside. I have always been committed to providing a quality site for scenario exchange. However, I am still unemployed (<shakes fist eastward> farging East Indians) and as such my free time is filled with: Job hunting - Not going so well in this really soft economy. Between actual hunting, chatting up recruiters, job fairs, and interviews, this takes two days out of the week. Side jobs - Building and expanding existing commercial. Not getting paid at the moment, but accruing invoices whic
  11. My dad, who landed at Utah beach on D-Day with the 90th ID, picked up a couple of 9mm broomhandle Mausers when he captured a medic and a sergeant in France near Metz. Both weapons are in excellent condition, and even included the wooden holster which attached to the butt of the pistol to act as a shoulder stock. The only deterioration is the inside of the muzzles. According to dad, the materiels used in making primers in Germany at the time were highly corrosive, and it definitely shows.
  12. OK guys, try it now. I zipped the file, although I'm uncertain as to why this would make any difference. If you have pop-up blockers enabled, this might be a cause; as Michael noted, there is a .php page in between the synopsis page and the actual download page which updates the database with some statistics. I have developed a completely different methodolgy for downloads which: 1) Eliminates this particular issue. 2) Allows for additional supporting files to be posted. 3) Allows for author upload of screenshots. 4) Allows for author updating of the scenario file. However, the
  13. Odd...just tested and it works fine using IE 6. What browser are you using, Michael?
  14. Kingfish, Apologies for the delay in response; life is stranger than normal of late. With regards to scenario packs - Submit all of the synopses as normal. There are two methods that you can use to post the actual file. First, however, go ahead and zip all of the files together into one zip file. Method 1: When you post the first synopsis, go ahead and perform the associated file upload. You would then manually enter the same URL in the zip file field for subsequent synopses. Method 2: Post all of the sysopses without performing a file upload. Email the scenario pack to me an
