Hi Jim,

Thanks for asking about me. You're very kind. I am okay. Well, actually I'm battling the flu at the moment, but otherwise, good!

I haven't been active with flight simulation much the past year because of my new job and other projects going on, but I'm still maintaining the latest release of FreeMeshX. Distribution costs of such a large database are huge, but I've been renting a serverbox for $15/month for the past 4 years to distribute it via bit torrent. That still adds up to be a lot of money, but hey it's good for the community to have a freeware option for their mesh needs.

Hi Daniel,

I'm happy you are still with us and appreciate the response.  I just got over a case of the pneumonia after spending 6 days in the hospital. Still recovering but getting there.  There are a lot of strains of the flu going around and it is nothing to mess around with!

Is there any way you could split your product up in Parts and then upload each part to our Library?  We would be honored to host your product if possible.  I'm not all that familiar with the Library but know Tom did things like this in the past and it would be great if we could make it happen.  If interested, go to the AVSIM Library and contact the Library Admin - Brian Newman.  I will bring this thread to his attention.

Get well soon!

Jim

Wow, pneumonia is no joke. Glad you are doing better.

It may be possible to upload it to the File Library. I have installers for each continent that are broken up into parts, similar to how ORBX use to distribute their products, and the max file size is about 2 GB for each part. If the File Library can support such large parts, then I will consider uploading it because I know some people can't wrap their heads around bit torrent or worse their ISPs are severely restrictive and throttle bit torrent traffic, even for legal to redistribute products like FreeMeshX.

Take it easy in the meantime. I'm sipping on some orange juice and watching some evening ice hockey.

Cheers!
