  1. "big shoes to fill" is an understatement. Congratulations on your retirement Kyp and best of luck to your future. Thanks for ten great years serving the membership.
  2. Really sad to read this. Mike was a really great guy.
  3. Michal, I sorted the email issue by using an alternate with no spam blocking. vRoute looks terrific. Thanks for all the hard work to make this freely available to our membership. GREAT JOB!
  4. vRoute is not required software for VATSIM. vRoute is an enhancement. It provides many useful functions that you might find helpful for on (and off) line flight simulation.
  5. Sorry for dropping one more on you Michal but I can't get registered either with my charter.net account. I tried an address directly off my own server and no joy there either. I just tried a third time from my server with all the spam blocking turned off but I am no longer getting any confirmation when I click the register button. Perhaps I caught the server at a bad time.
  6. I bet he is running only one view stretched across all three monitors. I have seen those Matrox triple head2go units at the AVSIM convention running three 19 inch monitors at 3840x1024x32. It's a slide show but wow what a view with the side monitors angled in toward your head. I guess the 8800 can't even make up for the cpu speed needed to generate a 3840 pixel wide view.
  7. Neil, Chad - did you get my email? EDIT, never mind, I see you added Chartfinder to the charts page - Thanks

  9. Excellent Kyle! Maybe my eyes are just too tired this evening but I can't find a date for the convention.
  10. Great news Ilan, looking forward to the South African fly-in in November.
  11. I look forward to meeting the participants. Hopefully we will have plenty of traffic for them to control so as to put on a good show for convention attendees. When I was in San Diego last year, the ZLA team did a great job with a similar event on the floor of the convention. Here are some of the photos I took of the ZLA crew. It was amazing how many flight sim enthusiasts attended the convention who were at awe of what VATSIM had to offer. Most all of them knew of us, but a surprising number of people had no idea how it really worked. This is a great PR opportunity.
  12. Ben, you can get details about their convention at the avsim.net web site. Look for a link on top of the home page.
  13. I will be attending the AVSIM Convention again this year. It starts on the 15th of this month in Washington DC. I see that the Washington ARTCC is controlling a fly-in from the floor of the convention on Saturday and I look forward to meeting that team. Anyone else planning to attend?
  14. No idea Vergil! Perhaps one of the other folks has had that problem.
  15. Maps, charts, etc.. http://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?t=2522 It sounds like you want to use the Microsoft Flight Sim (MSFS) flight plan and follow that in your MSFS GPS. Go ahead, once you are set up, use that flightplan when you file. Check out http://www.vatsim.net/prc/ Then navigate your way to the 122c course, checkout the second example. It is up to you to navigate, SB does not affect navigation at all. You REALLY need to spend some time at the PRC http://www.vatsim.net/prc before making your first on-line flight. It will give you a lot more enjoyment and make the expe
  16. The plus and minus signs precede numbers which indicate how many hundred feet above or below you the target is. The blue aircraft symbol is your plane, White targets are proximate traffic, Yellow targets are TAs Traffic Advisory (threats) Red targets are RAs Resolution Advisory (require action to avoid). Download this file- http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=ilh_tcas_v4.zip There is a zip inside with contents you can extract to a folder and view the README.htm file It explains most everything and even has pictures. You most likely already have
  17. Which part about Lee's TCAS don't you understand. The readme file included with the gauge should explain most of it. I will be happy to go through it with you. Which product do you have the gauge installed in?
  18. Chaz, Have you tried pecking the transmit key to see if it restores the incoming voice? I have that issue with voice dropping out myself, when it does, pecking the transmit key briefly will always bring it back. Dave, good tip on the USB power management. I just checked mine over on the laptop where I run SB3 and found no power management option on the specific USB headset entry, but there was one on the main USB hub. So I changed the option to not allow it to be put to sleep. I will have to see if it changes anything.
  19. Great story Cameron. I am sure there are more of us than care to admit it who did the same thing.
  20. Your help appreciated! We have just started updating the 2 year old PRC FAQ. In the interest of time, and getting the most accurate answers possible, I am asking our experienced members, to look through the draft and offer corrections. The new FAQ, when updates are complete, will be hosted here at forums.vatsim.net in the Pilot Software Help forum. New items will be added and edits made on an ongoing basis. Draft FAQ – http://mbev.net/bev/VATSIM_FAQ.pdf Suggested changes will be reviewed daily and the draft will be updated as required. Thanks in advance
  21. Graig, If you have followed the guides for installing the software and reviewed the users manual and it still does not work, try using either the SB3 forum or the FSInn forum, depending on what you have installed. The guys there should be able to get you going.
  22. It looks like I missed your ATC coverage. I am sitting at HESH for a while now. No ATC in HECC airspace and not an aircraft in sight. Do I have the wrong date or time. Feb 24 - 2130Z Sorry I missed you.
