  1. Man, you are sooooooooo unprofessional!! I found it quiet funny and actually reminds me of myself.
  2. Looking at getting a new computer will be running vista 64bit intel quad Q9550 2.83ghz CPU. These are already built I'm not building my own so this is what I have to go with, it is a smokin deal so thats why I am not building. Two different systems: Question is should I get 4gigs DDR3 1333 ram with a 9800 GTX+ 512mb video card and the GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-DS3R Intel Motherboard, OR 8gigs DDR2 800 ram and the GTX 260 896mb video card and the ASUS nForce 750i Ultra SLI motherboard ?? I am leaning more towards the 4gigs ram and the 9800 GTX with the intel board. Better overclocking and
  3. WOW!!!! That's about it. But seriously to all of you out there that are thinking of getting X-plane I highly recommend it. Just installed it tonight messed with it for a couple hours and it is awesome. A little harder to navigate around the menus than MSFS but that will just take a little time to get used to, flight dynamics are a million times better than FS and probably the best simulated that I have flown (fyi have flown several commercial full motion sims) Graphics are excellent and overall a very neat program. If you have the choice take X-Plane over Microsoft you wont be
  4. Thanks I'll check it out. All the pots I have found so far start at about 285 degrees and go up from there but I know they have some out there with a smaller turn ratio. Thanks, Mike
  5. Anyone know where I can get a 100k 90 degree rotation pot at???
  6. Video Card is the NVIDIA 200 series gpu card they have the GTX 260 and the GTX 280 both for desktops just a different numbering sequence than the 88xx or 98xx that we are all used too. Here is their web page: http://www.nvidia.com/object/graphics_cards_buy_now.html The ram is the correct ram for the board it only supports up to 800mhz for ram I thought this is how it always is ha ha ha .... no really if you know something that the rest of us don't share the wealth man. Thanks for all the other replies so far. Just was wondering about how well it will play the FS. That i
  7. Hey folks, I am looking at getting a new computer and would like some input from all the pros here on Vatsim. I know this is a common question/subject on here just was wanting to hear some of your thoughts that's all. Thanks, Mike Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550(2.83GHz) Processor Main Features 64 bit Quad-Core Processor Cache Per Processor 12MB L2 Cache CPU FSB 1333MHz Memory 8GB DDR2-800 Hard Drive 500GB SATA Optical Drive 1 20X DL DVD+/-RW Drive
  8. hey you all can come over to my place I got fast internet, BBQ, food, and whatever else you all wanna bring. I don't control but I can sure fly all over your scopes for you.
  9. I agree you should be able to answer back and comply with ATC instructions promptly. It makes it easier for ATC and in the long run makes it easier for pilots as well (cause we don't slow down everyone cause we are not doing what were suppose to). To all you pilots out there: answer back and comply with what ATC says if you don't hear them ask them to repeat and if you don't understand ask them to clarify. I'm not ATC but I can say with confidence that they would probably prefer you to ask them a million questions than to not answer at all. And one more thing if your gonna get on and
  10. I use vroute and firefox. Have had no problems. Just make sure that firefox is set as the default web browser.
  11. I have a list of Windows programs that you can disable. I will email it to you if you PM me your email. Wont be til Monday at the earliest though as I am away from home now and have all the info on my home computer. p.s. anyone else that wants it can message me also. Mike
  12. Cairns huh???? I flew there before, just so you know they are still doing around a 150-200 movements per hour during launch and recovery.
  13. 1. Real world charts. 2. When you take off you fly with LAX then if no controllers are where you are then you switch to unicom122.8 until getting close to lets say St. Louis then when you get near to entering their airspace just call and give them a position report and let them know you are enroute to boston. If you fly the whole way and then get to boston same thing call them up give a position report and let them know what you want to do. If you forget and start getting close to someone's airspace they will usually PM you with a contact me @..... message asking you to get ahold of them
