Howdy!

Been a while - and now I am back with a research question about fighter pilot ejection seats. Do fighter jets have any sort of survival packs built into the ejection seats?

Appreciate any links, pointers, and suggestions!

Other updates - I set myself a writing goal, with 500 words/daily on the weekdays and 250 on the weekend.  Built a pretty little tracking spreadsheet to keep the record as I go.  And so far, I have surpassed my daily goals each day since I started, even completing a new story, the first in some time!  i hope to continue this.  I've been away too long, and I LIKE getting things finished. 

Thanks for any advice!

Will

Sure is - it'll be a sweet read, with all the fine names whose tales are included! I'm also waiting to see what new anthology concept Eric gets going at HRB; the novels he's been publishing are great as well.

Where do you find the movies you've posted about? I'd love to see those old original flicks.

Some of the really old ones are in the public domain, so you can actually get them on the internet legally. Most of the rest are on DVD - I know that some public libraries in the US hold copies, although I'm not sure whether it's common.

Netflix has them, too.

In Argentina, sometimes they aren't available so I need to get them from peer to peer networks, though under Argentine law, I can do so as long as I publish a review (fair use). These are the lesser number, though - I can get most of them without trouble; they're classics, after all!
