Last thing I heard was that he had sold up, brought a yacht and was sailing round the world.Mind you, I have always had a sneaky feeling that he and Simon Evans were the same person ;)Dan.

Same as Simon Evans, also Slarty was officially banned from Flightsim.com.Interesting theory, that both were the same person. Maybe this was the reason for Slarty's banning.Anyway, I got many, many usefull hints and tricks from both of them.WolfgangPS: wonder if they (he) are still around ander a new AKA.

And to add to that:just have a quick look to both there writing styles. It would requires a truly schizophrenic person to write/comment so completely different in his role as Captain or Simon :-) :-)And whatever one's feeling are towards them (mine are positive by the way): they are definetely NOT THAT IMHO :-)Cheers, Rob

Hey Steve!Well its not too far from the truth is it! All keeping well I hope.For those who are wondering, Joe and Steve's (AKA Capt Slarty and Skymed) father used to teach me when I was at school, and my father taught Joe and Steve!Its amazing how small this world is at times... even more so when where we all grew up on an island (Isles of Scilly) with only 11 miles of coastline and 28 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean!! If it wasn't for the flightsim community none of us would never have known.Best RgdsAidihttp://www.avsim.com/pages/0100/avsim_sig.jpg

I seem to remember one of his favourite quotes was "snakeoil", oh we had so great "discussions" about the latest and greatest framerate boosts over at FS.com :-lolDan.

Hi Steve,Give Joe my regards. He came to Denver several years ago with his significant other, we had some fun simming and eating together (with my better half and I both). I hope he's doing OK.Bruce.(Boulder).

Thanks guys for all the info.Why was he banned from flightsim.com? I have posted the same question there but it was removed straight away. I certainly got some wise advise from him some time ago. You should always take his thoughts with a bit of salt.Stelios

The exact same reason a lot of others got banned from there, FS.com could'nt handle what some were saying.Most of it was tongue in cheek, but I don't think the american market get the British sense of humour sometimes ;)Dan.

>Most of it was tongue in cheek, but I don't think the american>market get the British sense of humour sometimes ;)>>Dan.That was the problem. Lots of people weren't finding him funny.His was quick with the jests, but they were always with a barb. It was enough to get him banned from those forums.

Yea, I think some people were too thin skinned for Slarty's sense of humor. Personally I enjoyed it.David

Slarty was a teacher? :-lol Now I've heard it all. Why is it that the people that are the most disruptive are the ones who should know better? A grown man, in a profession that deals with disruptive kids all day, turns into one on a game forum. Personally I thought that he was harmless, but I can see how some people would dislike him.

Slarty has been expelled/banned from just about every room he ever inhabited because he was not willing to play the game, bow to popular opinions nor allow the sellers of snake oil to get away with tomfoolery.I have forwarded this conversation to Slarty for his edification and enlightenment.Funny how the lil devil can cause a ruckus and not even be here :-))Steve
