Darn! I was hoping to stay in touch from internet cafes in Prague, Brno and Velke Mezirici.

I've stopped going to a number of overseas sites because I start getting a lot of spam and have to start hitting the "this is spam" button.

Japan and Korea seem to be OK.

More and more I'm with that Air Force guy that said a 500 lb. bomb on an ISP may be the only practical way to "cure" the hacking and spamming.

I gave my email address to a Japanese guy at work, so he could send a picture he took of me, and now I get spam in Japanese. Apparently, it is possible to know the 747-400 inside and out, but not be able to figure out how to install anti-virus software.

You obviously didn't get issued your sub-miniature cranial implant that gives you direct high bandwidth satellite linkage into any DoD and .gov domain. Next time you are by The Farm make sure you pick one up. Makes it much easier to check in here and into the Drudge Report from inside the Chinese labor camps out in Mongolia. :D

HTRN,

Sign me up. I need two over-size pallets though. One for my big metal box o' guns, the other for my big metal box o' ammo. 4' x 5' pallets would work. I'll probably leave my US historical weapons at home along with the .22's, otherwise it won't all fit in the two big metal boxes.

I am good to go. I can probably have this written up as "Foreign study" program. I will write up the proposal as "I wanted to travel to Africa, the jewel of the Old World. I wanted to meet people of an ancient and exciting culture".

Also, I know everyone is all gung-ho and everything, but let's not forget the logistics. One pallet of beer is wholly insufficient. With this group, a pallet might last a week, if we are lucky. Hell, we are going to need a pallet of gin per month for CombatController alone!

Might as well max out on food, gear, beverages, and camp followers. We can acquire AKs and ammo in country, and I'd rather not sample the local fare in regards to those other items.

Hmm... So, IOW, the gun counter needs to purchase Hendrick's gin... (I too am rather fond of the stuff...) The next question, is where can we obtain a supply of quinine -- I've taken to drinking my gin on the rocks rather than mixing it w. that nasty corn syrup tonic stuff.

I've never been able to find unsweetened tonic -- neither has the local liquor store... Well, Spec's downtown is a bit more than a liquor store -- it's quite large -- they used to import tonic from Europe which was sweetened w. cane, but that now also uses a "glucose syrup".

Of course, part of me thinks mixing things w. Hendricks is heresy... Roses! Uggh... Oh well, to each his own. Sometime, if you find a VERY good watermelon (probably in the South, from a man who doesn't speak English in a recognizable fashion) try making watermelon lemonade -- a pitcher of the stuff takes 1/5 of hendricks, and is quite lovely, and rather potent.

Hmm. Roses lime cordial? Haven't seen that for years. A very refreshing splash for tonic on a hot day. We should also stock up on Angostura bitters, for pink gins. Cork Dry Gin is your only man...
