    Buying a home

    Yes, the exchange rate will hurt. Absolutely true Hapa, the leader may be the face, but its a huge infrastructure that drives the system.

    Exercise, What am I doing wrong?

    Excellent feedback, thanks guys. Fortunately I hate Coffee and Beer, so its easy to avoid these calorie boosters. I do like my Cider, but I usually have about 2-3 a week. That is about the only alcohol I consume. It helped my Dad was an alcoholic and I refused to get caught up in that destructive cycle. I love my Diet Coke, but have really reduced that since I started fasting. I have a sweet tooth, so I do consume too much chocolate and other sweets, although I do try to limit that. I agree, even the off days I need to keep active. That has really been my downfall. Sitting at the computer or lying down watching TV has really caught up to me. It would probably be best to get a Trainer at the gym to ensure I am maximizing my work outs. Yes, I do drink a lot of water, especially during my fasting hours. The best results of my weight loss so far is my wife says I don't snore any more. Happy Wife, Happy Life!
  3. I had no idea my slower metabolism would lead to such poor weight loss. At least, that is all I can think of to explain the lack of weight loss I am experiencing. The last time I really worked out was 25 years ago, and it seemed much easier then. I always worked out every other day. Didn't really do any dieting. And I was successful after a couple of months. Fast forward to March 2015. I joined a club, started working out every other day and dropped from 260 lbs to 245 lbs three years later. I took some breaks due to pain, but I kept it up. March 2018 I joined a new club, lost a couple more lbs. In June I was told of this fasting process where you fast for 16-18 hours, then eat during the 6-8 hour window. Basically I skipped breakfast and stopped snacking. This is the first time I consciously "dieted". Weight loss continued, I dropped to 232 lbs. The only time I don't exercise is once a month during my day shifts of 3 days in a row and another set of 5 days in a row. I just can not motivate myself to get to the gym during day shifts. Afternoons and off days, I am fine for every other day. I am 57 years old. My workout consists of stretching, arms (3 sets of 10 reps curls, 3 sets of 10 pull down for triceps) or legs (Squat walk, three machines of 3 sets of 10) then the treadmill for 24 minutes. Total time spent in gym is about an hour. I retire in a month, so I will be able to spend more time in the gym. Do I really have to go every day to see real results?

    Buying a home

    Oh my god! I have got to get a home in the States. Even if it's just a winter residence. We bought our place in 1997 for $150k. With additions we have put on it and housing price increases over the years, its worth $800k now. Just have to convince the wife Trump is not so bad. :)

    Speech Disorder

    My oldest son has stuttered since he was very young. We took him to a couple of Speech Therapists and no improvement. My youngest son stutters as well. But I am convinced he stutters as a result of his brother. The youngest is not nearly as bad as his brother, and now that he lives away from home, it has improved. But still stutters at times. We have a very relaxed environment at home, I am not aware of any pressures the boys may have to cause the anxiety. My oldest is 23 now and has started to take anxiety medication. It has caused other medical issues, but he can't stop taking the medication. And he still stutters. I don't like that he is taking anxiety medication, but if it calms him down so he does not stutter, then it will be for the best.

    Clan for WOWWP

    Yes, clan related. You can certainly have different clans for each game. However, there was a conflict as the new clan also plays Tanks.

    Clan for WOWWP

    My first night playing with the new clan was pretty good. There was 6 of us in the TS channel and we were doing drops. Unfortunately I had to drop my DHO membership in Tanks as well. But since I so rarely played, it was the right thing to do.
  8. Despite the joy I had playing WoT with X, it was time I dropped out. I have been playing Planes for a couple of months and really enjoy it. Tanks has suffered as a result. Since there was so rarely anyone from DHO playing Planes, I have joined another clan for Planes. This caused a conflict with the new clan whereas I could not retain my DHO clan in Tanks. Since I was taking up a spot in X and I so rarely played, it was a logical decision to drop out of DHO X. Not to say it was easy, because I really like all DHO members. Thanks for all the great memories guys, it was truly an honour to play with such decent gentlemen. When I do play Tanks, I will certainly log in to TS. Canuckeh

    Clan for WOWWP

    Thanks Mykk. I was not sure how others would feel about my decision. I will certainly keep monitoring and posting here. My friends list in game also will not change, so I can still fly with DHO members.

    Clan for WOWWP

    I have joined another clan. They allowed you to log into TS without being a member. I thought this was a great idea to see if people are actually playing, how they interact and get a feel for the clan members. I won't post who I have joined as I don't think that is appropriate on a DHO website. However, if anyone is interested, please send a private message. I will keep coming here due to still being a DHO member in Tanks.

    Clan for WOWWP

    I know there is another thread with discussion about a clan, but I thought I would start a fresh one. From what I see while playing, there is only about 6 of us that seem to play regularly. I rarely see anyone in the WP TS channel. I don't mean to rant, just pointing out the obvious. When I play a Massive Multiplayer game, I am looking for teamwork with friendly like-minded friends. My options seem to be: Start a DHO clan. This costs gold, not much, but a cost none the less. I am sure about a dozen people from DHO will join, but ultimately I feel there will rarely be anyone playing when I am on simply due to the low number of DHO members playing planes. Return to Tanks, especially with the new graphics coming on March 20th, this will hold my interest for a couple of months, but I will probably get the urge to play planes again Join another clan As you can see, I will probably join another clan. If I do find a good clan, is there anyone that would like to join me? I am open to discussion.

    Problem Running Game

    It was a zip file. I have added it to this comment. I'm not sure it will load though. If not, send me a private message with your email and I will send it that way. WGCheck_EN (1).zip

    Problem Running Game

    I purchased a new plane (Tier 9 Attacker) and I could only see and play the one plane. I have had this before where I can only see one plane in my hangar. If I choose another plane I hear the noise, but plane image will not change. If I play a battle in that plane, I will be able see my planes normally in the hangar. However, this time nothing worked, playing the plane or reloading the game. I submitted a ticket. Wargaming linked me with a diagnostic program. It worked! I can now pick any plane.

    Finally a good result.

    Congrats, that is impressive.

    Wow, this game is not sustainable at that rate.
