  1. Gotta tell you.... I eagerly anticipate seeing who is going to volunteer to take this position. With every p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ing moment, and every rotation of the revolving door, the chances of finding well-qualified people to fill these positions gets slimmer and slimmer. Not to mention an open acknowledgment from the BoG that Division Directors hold no "real" power, authority, or decision making ability. So... what makes this position so rewarding, again? I may have missed it the first time around.
  2. Opher, that's SOP 'round here. Check my blog to get more background on that. People are expendable problems rather than valued [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ets on this network and that is just how things are. It's easy to be a complete and utter jerk to someone when you can do it from the comfort of your mom's basement dressed in your Mickey Mouse slippers and bathrobe seeking self-importance and ego strokes over thousands of miles. The new mantra is, "If you don't like it, leave." That's the BoG's perspective towards the membership; imagine what goes on "behind the scenes" where the BoG and cer
  3. Wow.... And again? And so are the days of our lives. I haven't been here in months. How coincidental. Whenever will the revolving door stop? After short pause on VATUSA forum..... Whoa.... Did I just read this right?http://forum.vatusa.us/index.php?showtopic=1759 VATUSA 1-3 QUIT? I believe that this, fine fellows of VATSIM, is a first.
  4. Do you REALLY need to meet with all of the ARTCC's to see what the pulse is? Let's see: Less traffic + less controllers + heaps of politics, bureaucracy, buffoonery, shenanigans, ambivalence, and sword fighting = not a lot of FUN. Isn't what this hobby is all about, after all? And since there will be the common "what are your ideas?" (what are you doing about it?... etc, et al.) retorts, I'll just point you to my ever so popular post titled "The List". THAT SAID: Andrew... It's not your fault. Alex... Not yours either. (Points in the direction of up.) As I'm familiar with... "
  5. Shame shame..... If you're going to post, at least tell the truth. I know better..... And so do you. YOU know who I'm talking about. Yes, you. Quit spinning it to allow them up there to save face... And I haven't posted in how long? Honestly... Haven't even looked a the forum since we talked.
  6. May want to try to get in touch with Leonard Jungyk. He helped me significantly while I was there.
  7. Again... THE LIST was never started to highlight the ZAU boondoggle. The ZAU boondoggle was used to highlight the list. The decision was irrelevant to me, honestly.
  8. I am not here to talk about me. I will give you a more in depth answer in another medium, whether it be email, phone, or TS. Let me know what works for you. I'll answer any question that you may have. To sum it up very briefly; my desire to allow others to use this hobby as a launching pad to a real aviation career (as it did for me) is what keeps me here. The people are what keeps me here. The joy that I have when I get on and control, and fly is what keeps me here. The great personal satisfaction that I gain from teaching somebody to learn to control here, and through this is experience
  9. Thanks for the info, Dave. Just a thought here, but if you don't have the time to dedicate to being the President of VATSIM because of your position in the military, and frequent (or even infrequent) TDY's, than why put in for it? You let this play out far longer than it should have, and still, there has been no official announcement anywhere that I have seen about this situation. Nothing in the ZAU forums, of which you are a member. So, officially, there is no official announcement. 71 days. No. I stand corrected. It was 41 from Sept 3, when I made my post. However, in 7 years on this ne
  10. This post is not about the ZAU ATM situation. I used the ZAU ATM situation, and it's outcome (because as I said, a decision has been made... It was made over a week ago) as one example to tie my original post together. There are so many situations which highlight these points, but the ZAU ATM situation was the was most current, and relevant. And, after seeing these emails, it proves 2 of the 3 points that I made. You have a choice to enter this thread to read it. There's a reason that it has so many views. SOMEONE is interested. If you don't like what I am writing, don't read it. Just lik
  11. Since I have your attention: Why no announcement about the ZAU ATM situation? Why has it taken 71+ days to rectify a situation that should have taken days to resolve? You can continue to try to change the subject, discredit me, threaten me, attempt to intimidate me, and coerce me all that you want, but at the end of the day, it is YOU that has a responsibility and an obligation to act in a manner that is in the best interest of the members of this network. You also have a responsibility to either allow the people that you nominated to lead to do so, or flat out remove them, and run this or
