  1. Well, considering over 8,000 people make and maintain a good connection each day, may I suggest you "sort it out, guy".... Suggestions: 1. Reboot your router and your computer. 2. If you are on a wireless connection, establish a location that will give you a better connection, or go wired. 3. Don't be a hater... Breathe. This will not kill you.

  2. That's what most of us do for almost all inputs but especially for those that take that extra time this mantra won't work either (as you'd still be making inputs while listening). Hence I'd like to plan ahead instead of lag behind. Of course, if implemented, anyone can still choose to only do the tag inputs when the aircraft has called in. But at least it's a choice and not a restriction anymore. Another planning argument I forgot to mention is that the use of SEP tools to see if a given direct (when flying on route but also to resume own nav) is free of conflict isn't possible either as said direct must be set (which you can't do) for those tools to work. Being able to plan this ahead is safer and more efficient than doing on the fly when the pilot calls in or in a follow up call when you finally got it all figured out.

  4. You can hop on all you want. You won't be in the slot database, and you won't have the "secret code" to file in your flight plan. Both of those will assure everyone that you don't have a slot. You are not restricted from flying, but since you've been specifically asked not to fly without a slot to protect the delicate balance of the event including staffing as it is, you are subject to hearing one of my favorite lines when someone is looking to something that just doesn't work and/or is "legal but ugly": "Expect a 24 hour delay".... Bottom line: Don't be a jerk. This event is stretched to it's limit already, for many, many reasons, with many, many in the community calling for it to be retired. Don't be "that guy"....

  5. A hard approach is one where the arrival controller switches arrival runway on you at the last allowable time limit and also offers you the latest ATIS at the same time. Being alone on the flight deck, now that's going to be a hard approach!😄
