As much as Medieval Polish Armies appeals, I'm going to have to go with B-25 Mitchell Units of the MTO.

Why not both? Or all five?

Got in this morning.

*except I can't check out.

I'm not sure what that means.

You're probably defaulted to the UK store instead of the US store.

That's most likely the issue, but now I can't log in.

I'm seeing it reported that when you create an Osprey account, it defaults to UK. If you're then trying to log in from a US address, it won't allow you to do so and you'll never be able to log in. Try creating a new account and make sure you select US as part of the account creation.

I didn't realize it was an account-creation issue though. Or how or why it wouldn't allow you to log in and then change your location. Programmers are the worst. :wink:

I’d disagree with you, but I’ve seen the shit that I and other programmers have written.

That's great, except that while I was trying to get logged in it started disliking my password, so I requested a password reset. That was last night and I've still not gotten my new password :grund: . So I give up. Since these are free, if someone can post the PDFs from weeks 3 & 4, please PM me with a link. And week 1 if you have them, since I missed the start of all this :roll:
