On This Day...

1942
Japanese aircraft from four of the carriers which fought at Pearl Harbor, attack Darwin in Northern Australia. The Japanese encountered five USAAF P-40s, which had recently returned from an aborted mission and shot down all but one of the US planes. A total of 81 Nakajima B5N "Kate" torpedo bombers then attacked shipping — at least 45 vessels — in the harbor, while 71 Aichi D3A "Val" dive-bombers, escorted by 36 Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter planes attacked Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) bases, civil airfields, and a hospital. Two Vals were shot down by the remaining P-40, which managed to survive the attack. No Allied planes successfully took off and all were destroyed or rendered unable to fly after the first attack. The second wave was a high altitude attack by land-based bombers, concentrated on the Darwin RAAF Airfield: 27 Mitsubishi G3M "Nell" bombers flew from Ambon and 27 Mitsubishi G4M "Betty" from Kendari, Sulawesi. This second raid lasted for 20–25 minutes. 243 people were killed, 8 ships were sunk, and 24 planes destroyed in the raid.

1945
US Marines divisions land on Iwo Jima. In the Pacific Iwo Jima is strategically and politically significant to both sides. The Americans need the island as a fighter base (Mustangs P-51 fighters) for their Japanese raids (B-29's) and a relief base for damaged bombers. On the first day some 30,000 marines landed, the about 23,000 Japanese soldiers have prepared defences but allow the landing to take place before opening fire. Over the next two months 6,281 US soldiers are killed (in the first 2 days, 4,000 US soldiers died), and 21,865 are wounded in capturing the island from 23,000 defenders, 21,000 Japanese soldiers died.
Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima are two recent films directed by Clint Eastwood and examine some details of the encounter from both the American and Japanese perspectives - both films were nominated for Golden Globe and Academy Awards.

Sorry about that !!!

I had not realized that the disk quota for the site (not that it is used much) had been exceeded so no one could post, delete or update anything other than the shoutbox.

You'd be surprised that the hosting company NEVER notified me (my job really)

Or that the 25,000+ spam emails for Rolex's, Viagra and other things that Drake was pushing via email that also included the email delivery failures from Soonie and Drake for the Bucket Revival (no wonder nobody was there) was jamming up the Site's inbox.. but I must say it stopped getting emails in 2013 !!!!

All because the Error_log file was at 8.85GB


My bad...

So how is everyone... everyone that can read this of course..

What are you doing now??????

on Apr 06 2014 : 11:56  Posted by HaB  Category: Misc   Comments: 10
So a lot of people have moved on to other things since the Buckets server going offline. Some even still play online together and have kept the gaming friendships going.

I tried BF4 and lasted all of 45 minutes of online game play before I uninstalled in disgust.. Sorry Drake and Soonie but I just could not play that drivel...

World of Tanks and War Thunder have held my interest for some time but the gaming became stale and boring and the usual crowd of griefers and punks just ruin the game with running the mouths and being on Roads lawn...

So I find myself wondering what is new, what is going to be the next biggest thing... for me there are two possible bright spots coming and I backed them through kickstarter... they have online elements and multiplayer but they are both Space sims... games I would lock myself away and spend hours playing in my youth....

Elite Dangerous (coming this year hopefully) link


Star Citizen (2015 to 2016 if it ever gets made) link

So what games are coming that are exciting you?

ET Server Closing

on Apr 14 2013 : 11:08  Posted by soonteck  Category: Server News   Comments: 1
The server will be closing in the next few days, and I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by the server. While I can't say that there wasn't some disappointment with the turnout, the fact that we did have Bucketeers show up was appreciated by the people that put this together.

It was great to see some old names and to play a game that we all enjoyed.

The server may be shutting down, but the community isn't dead, so please don't hesitate to post on the messageboard and to join the Chicken Bucket Steam Group to catch up with and see what games everyone else has been playing.

Thanks!
