Four years ago today I registered in this forum.

I does not seem that long. Pretty amazing that one series has held my interest for 4 years non-stop. I hope the next four will provide as much enjoyment and learning as the first four.

Thanks to Oleg for the great work, and to you lot for all the crazy (and good too) times.

Hmmm....not to hijack this thread, but it appears Chocomist/Badsight68 or some other nefarious curmudgeon has re-invaded the forums with a new name: BadKarma68.

I know, ignore him and he'll go away.

Okay then, congrats ElAurens!

Maybe you should have some proof before you accuse me of being someone I am not. It's not nice to call people names.

Besides four years is a long time and I was just kidding.

I don't know who Chocomist or Badsight68 is but should I expect this kind of treatment from this community? Jeez.

Funny thing that you mentioned that. I'm also great fan of IL-2 series from demo days...

Some could think that after 20+ years (from earliest childhood) one can get smug of his hobby (ww1/2 warbirds and airplanes in general). But no http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, I still like them perhaps even more as time pass...

I also had two accounts here but lost passwords for first account (computer crash), and abandoned second one because I started to dislike my username (it's related to A-bomb so...).
I think this one will do.

btw good to see you here Buglord (x2 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

Congratulations, El and glad to see your still around, you should be a moderator here, and I bet you would do a much better job then some folks. This last christmas was not the same here at ubi. I miss leadspitters photoshop cards of oleg, they really gave me a chuckle.
