Re: Lowering my backpack weight

Nah, inside the backpack will limit the volume available and lessen both what you can carry and how much it helps. Balloon attached to cable attached to backpack top to make weight on your back about 5 pounds. Less and you risk moving too much, more and it's not helping enough. Like a weather balloo...

Re: My PC

Settings - system - power & sleep - add'l power settings - choose what the power buttons do - turn on fast startup.

If the box is checked, fast boot is on. If it's not, it's off.

Re: What happened to Steam

I had a problem with Steam almost a decade ago where they wanted to know the last 4 digits of a credit card I'd used to purchase a game on the account. Apparently, someone reported my account was theirs and so I got disabled until I could prove it WAS mine. Obviously the other person couldn't prove ...

Re: My Dune review

If you have HBO Max you can watch Dune right now. That's what I did. For 30 days after release, then it disappears for a few months.
So you have until right before Turkey Day.

Re: Liberation - Mozdok to Mineralnye Vody

I would like to add that the flyable F-16 is not the 16cBL50. It is the CM Bl50 I think.

Re: Computer Build

If the thing lights up with standard power, fine. But I don't care about lights and won't put any effort into making them work otherwise.

Re: The death of cinematic music?

The LOTR films still count as within 20 years ago. ;) I really liked 2005 King Kong's too. I also thought the SW prequels had good scores, although not as great as the original trilogy. Now if you say last TEN years, all bets are off. Star Trek, Hobbit, Snyder-verse, Marvel... In fact, the only 2 th...

Re: My PC

My nvme is much faster than my SATA was. That said, if you're restarting it's slower than if it's using MS fast boot, which is basically modified hibernate.

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

I think part of it is the inherent limitations of the DCS missions we're running. Instead of the mission starting and us all being on the runway at the same time while the enemies are in their positions, we're all joining at different times, spawning enemies "wherever" on the map, getting ...

Re: Preferred Plane and Loadout?

Saw this last week and it seemed fine. Considering I never know exactly what loadout I'm going to want to use until I'm spawning it, no need to get overly specific.

I don't care the exact day, as long as it's before the holidays at year's end. It would be nice for T-day too, but if not so be it.

Re: Preferred Plane and Loadout?

I never answered this, but I'd love the Hornet for AA and AG as well as the F-16 for both when I learn it a bit more.

Re: 30 mm Chain Gun, AH64D

Between the Ka-50, Hind, and this I'm going to be set for rotary wing. Never had the urge to get the UH-1 or Gazelle or Hip.
