  4. Anything that doesn't kill you makes you stronger, or so they say. John
  5. Hey, Gabe. Welcome back from wherever you've been working/lurking. John
  6. I feel pretty sure they will patch this if it's reported. I haven't bought it yet but plan to within a week or so. Might wait now to see if they get this fixed, but it doesn't sound fatal. John
  7. The last Airport Diagram bundle updates were completed on June 20, 2017. The next bundle updates are anticipated on July 20, 2017 and normally require one or two days. I'll post an announcement when they are complete. John
  8. I guess the real punch line will be in six months or so when we'll see who's still running a government. I think we can agree that the Queen is probably the smartest of all of them. I hope she lives forever.
  9. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/gyrocopter-pilot-who-landed-at-us-capitol-to-be-sentenced/2016/04/20/3fe834ac-0703-11e6-bdcb-0133da18418d_story.html?utm_term=.72371bdc1fe2 Gyrocopter pilot who landed at U.S. Capitol sentenced to four months in prison Old news, but the legal outcome never made it into this thread so when I saw it I thought I'd bring it in. There are some interesting facts in the article, including that he had illegally modified the gyrocopter to double the legally allowed 5 gal. fuel capacity. It also lists, at the end, a number of other charges that were dropped, presumably in a plea bargain for his guilty plea to "...one felony count of flying without an airman’s certificate..." The tally of dropped charges is, "...a felony charge of operating without an aircraft registration, three misdemeanor counts of violating national defense airspace and one misdemeanor count of operating a vehicle falsely labeled as a postal carrier." The judge, in the sentencing hearing, specifically mentioned the deterrent effect of not letting him off with probation, which he requested. He was already a moron, but now he's also added being a convicted felon. That means he has lost his voting rights, his gun possession rights and probably any hope of ever getting a pilot license or of getting a federal job again. I hope he thoroughly enjoyed his fifteen minutes of fame. They're over and he paid a pretty stiff price for them. I think it's a fair outcome and about what I expected. John
  10. Someone should have told that to Amelia and Fred. John
  11. Happy birthday, Boss, from the late riser. John

  15. My dad was a long-term diabetic and I have some close experience with diabetes and eye issues. Be very careful, Alan. The problem with diabetes is that for every hour your blood sugar is out of control, there's a price to be paid. The insidious part is that the payment comes a long time down the road, so if you're not minding your diet, etc. and are frequently out of control, you soon get the idea that you are "getting away with it", which encourages further risky behavior. My dad was taken in by that and by his sixties was essentially blind - totally in one eye and very, very degraded in the other. He couldn't drive, couldn't read without very, very strong magnification and strong lighting and assorted other problems, not related to eyesight. Wounds don't heal, particularly in extremities, and the risk of amputation because of gangrene in seemingly minor wounds becomes markedly higher. It's a nasty, nasty disease and needs to be taken seriously. /lecture John
