heh. I suspect far from it. My guess is that the (older) members who have expressed affection for out-of-the-mainstream spirits, have reached that point in life when a hangover is - just - not - worth - it. I, and I suspect they, have discovered that spirits can be appreciated for attributes other than effect. When you don't do that much drinking, you want something special, and can afford to spend considerably more. So, instead of having 6 drinks for x amount of money, we have 1 drink for that same amount...but we can appreciate it. Sorry for OT.

EglaerinionHey guys remember the newspost a while back that announced the 2005 Mod Database Election of Best Mod. Well today the results got announced.

Forgotten Hope for BF1942 took number fourteen in the Top 15 Best Mods of 2005.

And Forgotten Hope 2 for BF2 ended up as number two in the Top 5 Upcoming Mods. Just trailing behind Black Mesa: Source.

Congrats to the devs that made a great mod for BF1942 and have shown great stuff for the BF2 version.

Intresting for sure though it's a bit of a shame that it is not in the top 10 of current mods. :( Still nice though.

I kind of agree Donitz ^^. However, in the big scheme of things, these votes really are pretty awful surveys for the best mods. I mean there is a teamwork tournement in that, which isn't even a mod and has only done well because they have a big forum/website fanbase which spams the vote. It's not an accurate representation of the the best mods at all in my opinion. I'm not sure if I have checked properly but I don't beleive 'The Hidden - Source' was in the the top 15 which is appaling in my opinion.

And I thought me buying a bottle of Hennesey was splurging... I worked for United Distilleries/Guinness NA in Louisville KY and you'all would crap if you knew how cheap it was to make vodka and gin. Scotch is a close second if you don't age it past three years, already in barrels used for bourbon. New barrels plus time to age = expensive bourbon. Oh, btw, congrats again devs on a superior product at an excellent price...:D FH2 will rock the mod no doubt but you'all got me interested in #1.

Nothing wrong with Hennesey. And I've been trying to tell the Grey Goose/Belvedere crowd that the difference in the cost of their "superior" vodka and the Smirnoff they sniff at, is the cost of the marketing campaign, nothing more. They don't like me to say that.
