Glad to have you back!

Recommended Posts

It's amazing how much you can miss Avsim when it's not available. After being here since 2003 and visiting multiple times a day, it really feels weird when there's an absence for more than a day or so.

Is it just me, or are the forums loading much faster now?

Tell me about it! I was in Puerto Vallarta for the past week, and although I stayed at a five-star resort, the wifi and Internet were terrible. I could hardly connect, and when I did, I wasn't able to log onto Avsim--even though I tried every day. I've been out of the loop for a total of eight days!

Eight days ?

 

That's a LIFETIME....

 

I couldn't survive that.

 

I thought AVSIM had gone off to Pluto..... :(

 

Welcome back !

Yes,  due to technical problems, as I mentioned in another post.

The GTA guy

 

Well I don't personally own or play GTA, but as you know, I've posted numerous videos on the forum here to try and contrast GTA's interactive real-world physics with our current flight-sims' lack of collision detection etc..

Toowings

So you were Toowings joined 11/13/09 and PropheadX joined 4/22/15. You keep getting locked out or something with your passwords? Maybe the Avsim staff can assist you the next time you're locked out so you don't need to make a new account.

It's not like I know something that no one else knows. Before he replied I found a post under his latest user name where he said he was formerly PropheadX. This was prior to his reply saying he was Toowings.

 

That's why I was suggesting that if he's getting locked out or something that may the staff can help him so he doesn't have to keep creating new accounts.

Well done Sherlock ;-).. But its hardly rocket science since I declared my old username each time.

 

That's why I was suggesting that if he's getting locked out or something that may the staff can help him so he doesn't have to keep creating new accounts.

 

But perhaps I wanted to create a new account every once in a while.  Perhaps like many on this forum  I can become quite addicted to Avsim to the extent that I spend rather an unhealthy amount of time here when I could be doing more useful things in the real world.  Perhaps I therefore forget my account details every so often as a means to escape this time-consuming addiction for a few weeks, months, or even years.

 

.I'm certainly impressed that you're an official Topic Starter and have held the same account here since 2003 and amassed  4,659 posts..and counting..  But to be honest I dont personally want to get sucked into flight-simming or flight forums to that extent anymore -where I hardly have a life outside and spend most of my online time in trivial pursuits reading and replying to posts ad-infinitummm.

So perhaps I press the abort button every so often to escape that cycle of addiction that sadly so many of us are caught up in nowadays, and walk out into the fresh air  ;-)

But you too can easily become an "official Topic Starter" simply by - do not be too surprised here - starting a topic. :He He:

 

In any event, welcome back.
