  1. Hello, You have reached the Men's Help Line, my name is Bob. How can I help you? Hi Bob, I really need your advice on a serious problem. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. You know, just the usual signs: The phone rings and when I answer, the caller hangs up. Plus, she goes out with the girls a lot. I usually try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home, but I always fall asleep. Anyway, last night about midnight, I woke up and she was not home. So, I hid in the garage, behind my boat and waited for her. When she came home, she got out of someone’s car, buttoning her blouse, then she took her panties out of her handbag and slipped them on. It was at that moment, while crouched behind the boat, that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard motor mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld, or do I need to replace the whole bracket?

  3. Happy Birthday Arnie, hope your special day has been a great one.

  5. I think those that are hard core airline simmers would have a pretty good chance, I fly more GA but I at least know where all the bits and pieces are on the tube liners. ATC might not know how to help but they certainly know who to call to jump in to help talk someone down. I don't think any plane Captain would want to admit that a flight simmer could do it but they make some pretty good study aircraft lately and as you said John it would be better to try to land it than the alternative, even if you broke the undercarriage. I only read the article fast but not sure why he said that the planes don't carry enough fuel when we all know they carry enough for holds, go-around and alternates plus the required safety margin. I'm not that schooled on fuel planning and I know airlines are cost conscious but they still have to fall within safety guidelines. That said, if it ever did happen when I was on a plane I would consider myself very very lucky if Jess-b just happed to be flying with me.
  6. Nice series of shots of the photogenic Spit Alan, that's for the look.
  7. Sometimes I wonder if we ever get the real truth. History shows this is not an unreasonable assumption.
  8. Hi James. The program probably needs the freeware FSUIPC to run and is why it comes with it but only if you purchase the full payware FSUIPC can you actually use it's advanced utilities. Just guessing because I don't have the Flying School but have received the freeware FSUIPC in other addons that needed it to run them.

  10. My progression from default FSX to a world of so many different freeware options was eye opening and a learning experience combined. By all means give thanks to all those tireless developers that made flight simming such a great experience. I have since moved on to mostly payware but my simming fun wouldn't be half as good without all those neat little airport gems, gorgeous re-paints and fantastic utilities. Thanks to all those hard working hobbyists. Like Matt my hard drive looks like in just ate a Thanksgiving dinner and is sleeping on the couch but I have had a great time cooking all those ingredients to it fatten it up. Might be time for a diet as there is a lot of unused stuff just sitting there after being superseded. x-Plane is a viable flight sim and I wouldn't doubt it has much to do with all those that have been bitten by that which is FSX and are perfectly happy with something that runs good right out of the box. Happy to see hobby developers making addons for it because like FSX before it the sim needs just as much help prettying it up. If I had the room I would probably pick it up just to check it out. Good post John and thanks for sharing that bit of assessment.
  11. Good one Steph, nicely done.
  12. Bit late here but it's never to late for a celebratory wish, Happy Birthday Andrew. Hope you had a good one.
  13. Very entertaining matt, great PIREP, lots of aircraft and wonderful collection of shots. If it wasn't for the bad analogy of political issues it would have been perfect.
