I test Steadfast,STHCRS and TSP too,so...

the time i spent with FRED is bigger than the total time I spent playing the retail(not the demo since I played with it for 1.5 years...)and the time passed here at HLP put together.

Ok this one just happened to me. 

I was restocking the beer fridge and every time I put a beer in I kept hearing that support ship missle reload sound in my head.
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Depends of keyboard layout, though.

On Finnish keyboard, time compression is shift+. and decompression is shift+, ...and on different layouts it's different accordingly. Because FS2 (and FSO) don't take layouts into accord, the actual keyboard commands vary slightly from country to country.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

HAHAHAHA the beer reloading one is the best :lol:
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.
