in World War II
Lest We Forget

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)

Thanks Steve @ HardOCP
For those of you who havenít checked this out yet, head on over to Google moon and zoom in all the way to the surface of the moon. I donít want to give anything away but the detail of the moonís surface is phenomenal.
In honor of the first manned Moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969, weíve added some NASA imagery to the Google Maps interface to help you pay your own visit to our celestial neighbor. Happy lunar surfing.

Are you a frustrated novelist working on your magnum opus, but just can't seem to get the recognition you so justly deserve? Do you like combat simulations and strategy games? Can you spel gud? Well, why not hone your craft, vent your frustrations, and get a few free games while you are at it?
COMBATSIM.COM is looking for volunteers to write previews, reviews, interviews, and strategy guides about a variety of PC and console games in the combat simulation, strategy, first-person shooter, and RPG genres.
The rewards are the typical two F's: no, not fame and fortune; rather, fame and free games.
If you have the desire, then you are already halfway qualified. The other half is at least one sample of your writingpreferably about a game, but not mandatory.
Interested individuals can send an email outlining their area of interest, any past experience, and a writing sample to site admin.

Yes, we are back. As of March 18th, 2005 we are a free site again.
First and foremost a HUGE THANK YOU to all those who subscribed and supported us while we were a pay site. Furthermore, to our former paying subscribers, we cancelled all the monthly rebills last month so you will not see any further charges from us. Again, thanks very much for your support.
There is much to do on this new site, and like anything new, there's bound to be technical problems and breakdowns in communication. Please have patience with us as we try to work throught these issues.
