It looks fine in Explorer... Very readable.Anyway, great idea, you've obviously laid out some interesting flights with enough info for every airport to give that extra flavour. Great idea! Hopefully will see some of you there.-Dasher7

With respect, expecting visitors to alter their browser choice and/or compromise security settings to access a single website that was unwisely designed just isn't a good approach for drawing a crowd, sir.

Hi GeorgeIt might be a good idea to redseign the website in the future to display well in a number of popular browswers. This is accepted practice in web design. That way, you'll endear more people to your good idea. I say all this in the spirit of constructive critiscism.As for Ben g's comments above, he's got his wires crossed. Incidentally, wasn't he the cheeky young rascal who had a predilection for racism and homophobic comments and was kicked off the site a couple of days ago? If I have the wrong Ben, my most humble apologies, although the tone of the post above certainly smacks of his style.

If I have the wrong Ben,>my most humble apologies, although the tone of the post above>certainly smacks of his style.Thank you Jennifer,I just made public something I consider to be innovative and important (at least for me and the rest of the fellow flight simmers who keep registering and registering). AVSIM's audience (MSFS forum)was not informed (since this is an ONLINE only (VATSIM/IVAO) project) and I thought just to drop a note, 1 week before flying the first leg. I know the problems and limitations "an unwisely designed site" causes to visitors. I don't have the time to find out why Mozilla misbehaves when Opera and IE display things just fine. People who are really tempted from the idea of flying the Boeing 737 among the most wild and dangerous airports of MSFS2004, using real weather and virtual air-traffic control, will find a way to read the site.And something else: We don't make money out of it, we don't advertize anything, we don't host commercial banners, we don't use adware or spyware tactics, nothing.Thanks for listening, signing off.George Matsaridis,BB Project Concept & Web,www.aegeanseagull.com/bb

The site looks great to me and I think it's an excellent idea. Congratulations.Frankly, I'm appalled at how rude and ignorant some of the posters have been.Best of luckBlairCYOW

Well...I was intrigued by the idea, but was offended by the language in the child's "note" to the captain, so don't think I'll join. I realize this is my personal sensitivity, but others may feel the same way.Regards,

Using Netscape 7.2 and pumping the View/Text Zoom to 150% I was able to match the appearance of the website to that of IE, so once past the too-tiny flash screen, I was able to read everything clearly.Frankly, I hadn't read the "child's note" that closely, but having gone back and read it completely, I must say that it is in rather poor taste. Any child of mine using such language would be severely disciplined.

I have to agree with the other folks, about the use of language in the Child's note. Very poor taste, not very professional in my opinion. When I reached that point in the website, I closed it down.When you guys grow up, I MAY check it out again.
