Has anybody checked the ACIG forum-it's been hacked by Matt Wiser
Has anyone checked out the ACIG forum at ACIG.org? Seems some punk from the PRC hacked into it and put a pro-PRC/Maoist page instead of the forum-obviously somebody with WAY too much free time on his hands. Stuff like this makes one wish hacking was a capital offense. Posted via...

FS Luftwaffe books by Gordon
