Post subject: For those with time on their hands...

I think every sim pilot at one time or another has thought about a SimCockpit. Most at CC like the older prop driven planes and especially the WW2 era.

While I found it strange there's no full view pics of the project, the details of the progress are there and from those photos, you can see the intense labor (labour for those across the pond...lol) and attention to detail.



Here's the site I came across...

I'm ufing the correct fpelling as t'waf before it became popularifed when fome fool human invented the letter 'q' and ftarted fearching around for wordf to ufe it with.

'Queen' - the only real use of the letter, other than the word 'quiz' (which was only recently invented in Irelend anyway) - used to be 'Kween' but no-one had ever actually had to use that word until after the letter 'q' was invented and 'q' lovers jumped on it before a precedent had been set.

Quite the qualifing qoutation, Queer that there are no other quantities of words that begin with "Q" Wink just a quick, quiet, quaint observation Laughing

No, no.
They all came about after they invented "q" so they don't count.

There you go corrupting history to suit your evil schemes again tree rat
Q predates W by about 1500 years
"It is generally held that the Latins adopted the western variant of the Greek alphabet in the 7th century BC from Cumae, a Greek colony in southern Italy, making the early Latin alphabet one among several Old Italic alphabets emerging at the time.

Roman legend credited the introduction to one Evander, son of the Sibyl, supposedly 60 years before the Trojan war, but there is no historically sound basis to this tale. From the Cumae alphabet, the Etruscan alphabet was derived and the Latins finally adopted 21 of the original 26 Etruscan letters.

The original Latin alphabet was:

A B C D E F Z H I K L M N O P Q R S T V X "

"The earliest form of the letter W was a doubled V used in the 7th century by the earliest writers of Old English; it is from this <uu> digraph that the modern name "double U" comes. This digraph was not extensively used, as its sound was usually represented instead by the runic wynn (Ƿ), but W gained popularity after the Norman Conquest, and by 1300 it had taken wynn's place in common use. Other forms of the letter were a pair of Vs whose branches cross in the middle. An obsolete, cursive form found in the nineteenth century in both English and German was in the form of an "n" whose rightmost branch curved around as in a cursive "v" (compare the shape of ƕ)."

So if we didn't have the W till about 1300, how did we know about the 'Woman Empire' and Caesar shouting "welease Bwian"
