  1. Aaaaaand I'm back again, after a lengthy absence. Rock, if that rifle has the same rear sight as an HK 91/G3 (and I think it does), I DO have the tool to adjust it!
  2. Rock, I'm sorry. I'd have posted something sooner, but I don't get back here that often anymore. My folks are both gone. I lost my dad in 2006 and my mom just four years ago (2014). It's rough for a while, but it helps if you focus on the good times. Take care, my friend.
  3. Rock, as it turns out, there are already three groups out there: Cyberpunk 2020, Cyberpunks of 2020, and CYBERPUNK 2020: Neo Cities. I haven't checked them out yet, but I'm about to do so. You might want to do the same, just to avoid duplication of effort and also to recommend the best one (if any of them are worth anything) to the rest of us.
  4. It's been really quiet on VftE for a long time now and I'm wondering how many of the members are still in regular contact via other social media. For example, Hanns, Dog Soldier, Rockwolf66. and I are all friends on Facebook and we all interact over there a WHOLE LOT MORE than we do here anymore. I mentioned this to one of them (Hanns or Dog Soldier, I don't remember which), and he suggested that I go and troll the VftE for more folks. So, how about it? If you're interested in joining our small but congenial group, and if you have a Facebook account, go to Facebook, search for "Mark Cook"

    The Expanse

    So, season two is about half way through and it just keeps getting better and better. The casting is superb, the script is crisp, and the production values are (at the risk of a pun) out of this world. I am ecstatic to hear that season three has already been green-lighted and I've already completely plowed through the six book series (by James R. A. Corey) upon which it is based. It's the best thing to grace the idiot box in a loooooong time!
  6. All good things, I agree. OTOH, I just saw a spot-on Facebook picture comparing the new SecEd to Dolores Umbridge (of Harry Potter fame.) I didn't know whether to chuckle or cringe. Plus, I'm REALLY starting to tired of the growing list of "alternate facts" and how our new Chancellor-in-Chief seems to be systematically trying to alienate the head of every allied country we have!
  7. To tell the truth, I think the REAL "Combat Zone" today is in South-Central Chicago. Regard the latest headline: 19 Shot, 6 Dead in 12 hours in Chicago Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's the gun-control capital of the U.S.A.
  8. Well, if you're a bad person for thinking that, then so am I. BTW, I found a photo of the bomb-carrying robot online:
  9. Boy, you guys have all the fun!

    The Expanse

    I decided to briefly wander back in from the fringes of the CP-free wastelands with a question. Did any of you watch the first season the SyFy channel series "The Expanse"? Lori and I did and liked it enough to buy the whole thing on disk. While it's really more TransHuman than Cyberpunk, it's still pretty damned good. It's gritty, edgy, and complex, with good writing, good acting, high production values, and great FX. I'm looking forward to the second season (which, alas, is scheduled to air until 2017.)
  11. John Browning is God. John Garand and Eugene Stoner are his prophets.
  12. Mike, you've touched on an aspect of CP2020 (the MedTech) that's near and dear to my heart. However, before you start reinventing the wheel, you might want to give this the once-over. http://www.shoestring-graphics.com/CP2020/medtech/ It's a website I started 15 years ago and never completed. It was intended to be a reference that filled in all the missing pieces of the MedTech (and related) profession. Unfortunately, I ran out of steam. If you find any of it useful, please feel free to take the ball and run with it!
  13. Hey, guys! Look time, no see! Since you're all talking about new toys, I picked this up a few months back and have been lovin' it! https://www.flickr.com/photos/buzzgunner/7512062706/
  14. It's not the biggest revolver in the world, but it may be the biggest one you can easily carry around. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, THIS is the biggest one: http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/08...ggest-revolver/ And you're right, it does look a bit like my Mateba!
