That's OK, Noel...I hate AOL too. If you know how hard it is to remove their '30 day free trial' installation from our computer network you'd understand... :-grrBe kind to GeeBee Jim though - his works (must be the dry, clean air in Tucson!) :-beerchugTry emailing Mr Rossner and buddies at Avsim and they'll sort you out regarding your new address.Jon Point*************************(effyouthree@hotmail.com)*************************

I wonder how many unused AOL CD's there are in the world ? They seem to be everywhere.Chris Low,ENGLAND.

I've got 15-20 here! At one stage they came with every PC mag you bought :-(Here's my recommendations; 1. Everyone collect and keep their free AOL discs then one day, we all ship them (at the same time) via surface mail back to AOL HQ! It would kill the US postal system and probably cause the US Government to hit AOL for the cost of disposal ;) or,2. As above but on one day, at the same time, we all invoke our trial editions! Again, problems for AOL but at first they would respond, simply thinking it was a good day until the servers fall over at 9AM and they spend the next week trying to restore services back to existing, disgruntled customers ;) ;)Either way, AOL should cop it. That's only fair :-)Jon Point*************************(effyouthree@hotmail.com)*************************

Guess what shiny piece of loveliness was attached to the front of my latest issue of PC Gamer magazine ? Yes, that's right. An AOL Broadband CD. The cardboard sleeve even provides details about how to get started with the installation !Insane or what ? :-)Chris Low,ENGLAND.

I've got a stack of the things myself. But not all that I've obtained over the years, as I gave a bunch of them to a gardening friend to hang in his fruit trees. They're great for scaring off the birds! :-hah[table][tr][td valign=top]http://www.avsim.com/other/usaribbon.gif[/td][td valign=center]Bob "FlyBert" StilesAVSIM Moderator[/b][/td][/tr][/table]"Don't stall on me, I have to soar!"~Richard Harvey, 1/21/2003

On the same note as the AOL-in-the-trees: Think of the lives and jet engines saved if the same worked near airport runways....:-eek Oh NO!!! I hope they don't read this...landing fees might go up $23.95 if they start THAT!:-laugh1 Fly First...Play Later...--Noel
