Seems Hammy has had his second heart attack, and as far as I have seen the posts of the last 3 or more months have been flushed down the toilets...

What's all the fuss now? We are in mid October 2006, we are waiting for Oleg to release SoM and 1946, and we have dreamt all that happened the last three months.

Or did you really think that Mustang was really so good and they had fixed the Macchi? I knew it was all an oniric illusion, when I saw the Lerche: surreal! My post count is now below 3000, as it should be.
