I plan to be doing a 16 hour PIC-ONLY VATSIM marathon. I am in to anything that might be arranged that I can fly in a 767, or I will fly whichever way the jetstream is flowing. I plan to be on from 3pm Saturday until 7am Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon, back on by 2pm until 11pm. Girlfreind is away this weekend, I'll give Mikey a run for his top spot soon enough ;-)Where's Mike B when you need to him organize something??Tentatively, I am thinking of a start off in Europe/UK (couple short hops EGJJ-EGLL-EGPF) on Saturday afternoon 3-6pm EDT, then 4x over the pond to EGPF-KBOS when the Brits go to bed around 6pm. Then I was thinking KBOS-(KORD-OR-KCLE depending on ATC)-KSTL-KDEN-KLAS-KLAX that should take me to around midnight/1am EDT, then KLAX-KSFO-CYVR, then maybe some mountain flying in the Baron or Floaty-Cessna to cap off the night as most ATC will be off-line around 4am onwards EDT.If anyone has a real world 767 plan for EGPF-KBOS on Saturday, be much appreciated.That's what I know.Rob.

Senegal beat France...heheI am crazy for the PIC and this is the first super-long marathon I have had a chance to do for a while.You know when I will be on, Stiff, hope to see you on-line at some point. I suggest putting the TV near the PC, then you won't miss any of the world cup ;-)England is going to win this year...my prediction!Rob.

Now, my parents taught me not to gamble, but what the heck :-lolI'd say England is out in the semi-finals. Sweden will of course end up as world champions! (Hey, you have to have some confidence in your national team, right?)Regards,Karl

PMFJII'm glad the World Cup has started, it will save me a lot of time and money by knowing I can leave the TV OFF for long periods of time, that's how much I'm into footy :-lol Now if they put US Drag racing or NASCAR on UK terrestrial that would be a different story :-)

I know how you feel - I hated all the football in the papers, pubs, TV, basically everywhere you go, when I was still living in London. But once you live abroad for a while, you tend to miss these things - but no doubt I'll be complaining about it all the first chance I get when I visit Britain again.Ironically, one of my first jobs after qualifying as a lawyer was an assignment to the CPS, prosecuting in Dover Magistrates Court all the hooligans that were extradited from France during the 1998 World Cup... What an experience! Just when I thought I had seen it all, they brought on the next defendant, who had just stooped one step lower than the previous one. But now I can just enjoy the game, whilst having a beer, without fear of a riot on the street outside my home, if the 'wrong' team wins.Cheers,Gosta.

Russel,Nice to see you in my sky last night (~0700Z) - you handled the runway flip flop like a pro. Just to elaborate - after 0000 Local in Los Angeles they put the field into this weird configuration for noise abatement. Generally speaking, they want all of the low altitude operations over the water (where it won't wake people). So all departures go off of runway 25L while all arrivals come in on 6L. If you think about that for a little while you will understand why it is known as "Suicide Configuration" - lots of fun as a pilot - and even more as a controller, you should see how much fun it is when traffic is steady and the ceiling is low.Anyhow just wanted to say hello - you caught me at the end of a shift there and I did not recognize the call sign.Ian Elchitz
