  1. It is my pleasure to announce the release of VatsimPHP version 4.0.1. This update is REQUIRED for ALL current users of VatsimPHP. This update complies with the current Vatsim data URLs and regulations regarding Vatsim data usage. You may download the current version at http://www.bbflights.com/VatsimPHP. NOTE: Webmasters need only to replace the previous VatsimPHPgenerator.php file with the current one available for download. All functions will work as normal.
  2. Will http://metar.vatsim.net/data/metar.php still remain? This is what VatsimPHP uses, and it gets that from the status.txt file itself. As a note, VatsimPHP retrieves this date every THIRTY minutes, for those of you worried if you are using VatsimPHP for your information.
  3. I doubt you would be able to get under $400 for all three, since a good motherboard will get you at $100-$200, plus a descent processor can get expensive.
  4. For the iPhone, open the webpage in Safari and save the page to your home screen.
  5. Now THIS is the kind of application that VatsimPHP was intended for! Great job, adding it to my iPhone (even though I also have vRoute.mobile).
  6. The one that, paradoxically, makes the biggest difference in the perceived speed of the computer - disk. You shouldn't underestimate the time it takes FS9 or FSX to load textures from disk. A fast (rather than large) disk can improve a lot of things on your PC, and not just for Flight Simulator. If you're doing a fair bit of software compilation, faster I/O means less time waiting to compile. I got a Velociraptor after reluctantly parting ways with Ultra-160 SCSI and haven't noticed the difference. It's probably the last rotational drive I'm going to buy - the next refresh for my PC in 201
  7. So Ross, are you trying to use this for your 360* tower sim? Maybe that top-secret version of VRC with support for FSX?
  8. First of all - Welcome to Vatsim! Most controllers are extremely willing to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ist new pilots. That is one thing that you will find great about Vatsim. As for pilot training, there are numerous ARTCC- and Division-sponsored training programs (ZLA has a popular one).
  9. Great job Mat, you will do wonders!
  10. I fully agree with Keith. You have done some great things as VATUSA5. However I am sure that your reason was justified, and I will see you at UND!
  11. Sad to see you leave ZOB, Tommy. Have fun in ZAB!
  12. Reading through this, why don't we have a VATUSA-wide event, where each ARTCC has a gettogether within its boundaries. This would provide a more realistic event (since the controllers would be gathered in separate locations), and many more members would be able to participate.
  13. Congrats everyone! Especially Curley!!! Great job!!!!!!
  14. Your abilities are increased with more RAM, however overall frames might diminish. This is because each 'part' of the RAM needs to be checked to handle the operation, which takes time. Critics: This is what I was taught by a certified Microsoft IT Academy instructor. The things I have learned from him have gotten me to first in the state and sixth in the nation for Business Professionals of America.
  15. I doubt we would be able to staff Selfridge, since it is not in the Detroit TRACON. After all, it is the Greater Detroit VI!
  16. We actually staff DTW, DET, YIP, YNG, and PTK for the event (or at least try to). Remember, it is our biggest event of the year!
  17. OR maybe file your flightplan at an altitude of FL2'6'0 at a speed of 4'66' knots, with a departure time of '6' PM ET. Just don't get caught flying at '6'x time!
  18. This would probably be a great topic for the "VRC Help" forum.
  19. You are like a brother to us, Andrew. (Not the brother you get along with, but rather the older brother that nags you constantly)
  20. Congrats everyone, especially Roger, Adam, and Bob! Go ZOB!
  21. Because it is a separate facility in real life. ZAK is not just another ARTCC, since non-Vatusa members are allowed to join.
