Wives have "radar", which can sense when you are 5 miles from an airport, and it triggers a "honey, I need you" request immediatly. I have no idea why this is. I think MS has put it in the game and it is subliminaly passed onto the wives through wav. files. Naturally this is only a theory, but until I can get a better grasp on it, I am taking it as truth. LOL! ;)Don

Don is right. Wives have radar! (hah, that made me laugh so much!)So do kids.After a 14-hour real-time flight from Newark, my twin boys came crashing into my room and fell on me and on the yoke as I was 500' AGL into Dubai on a 777.Happens EVERY time. Happens to my good FS friend, Joe, as well.It's just.....life! That's the answer.JS

I thought I was the only one............You probably have noticed If Its not the Wife, It happens just on your final approach seconds from touchdown, the phone will ring, the doorbell goes, or around the corner comes the vacuum cleaner ( just so It compets with atc In an attempt to outdrown It)Oh yes I forgot have you ever heard this before ? ( Are you on that again ! Its alright for you ! I wish I could sit down and do nothing !Our reply......... "yes dear"

I think that interruption happening is proportionate to the number of years you've been married. (or is that inversely proportionate?)I have been married for well over 40 years and those kinds of "wifely" interuptions are extremely minimal to non-existent. The phone ringing on the other hand, is still a factor.I have discovered a new "interruption", though. On final - low visibility, bad cross wind, not using autopilot approach, and POW!!! up pops that dang kneeboard right in the middle of the screen because I have inadvertenly hit the button on the base of the Sidewinder joystick.I suppose there is a way to disable that, but I have reluctant to ask because for fear of incuring the wrath of those feel I should have figured it out by myself.DonaldS

Donald,From the main menu,OptionsControlsAssignments will get you to here:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/42442.jpgScroll down to Kneeboard display/hide and click on it to highlight. Click 'Delete Joystick Assignment'If (as in the case of my configuration) there is no specific joystick assignment, it would indicate that your joystick is emulating a keyboard command. Your choices would be to delete the keyboard assignment as well (thereby rendering the kneeboard accessible only through the on screen menu) or to reprogram your joystick to change its handling of that button. (You're on your own with that one...)Cheers,Doug Dawson

Suffer the same problem, although in real life she doesnt bother me but for some reason on the computer its usually about as soon as im lined up and ready to flare.

Ok- now this is only with the REGISTERED version of "ProtectMyFlight", but within the FS OPTIONS menu you should see these options...I always use "simulate landing / Phantom" option so they only THINK youre landing, after it crashes they know they have done their job, so they leave you alone, and the sim then resets you right back were you were before activating the phantom landing. Works like a charm everytime! :)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/42444.jpg

Hello All,Ahhhh, yes, it is sooooo true! I use to have a business in my home, hence an 'thick' office door with a LOCK! After six months of being constantly bothered, espicially upon final, I began locking the door with a sign: "I am flying, do not disturb me unless one of you is dying or the house is on fire."I'm Sorry to add, it didn't do any good ... they just yell louder and pound on the door.Best to all,Clay

8 hour trip across the pond. Turning final, VATSIM controller issuing commands into my headset. The trolley dolley comes up behind me and says, "I've got a trunk full of groceries, I need your help now". Why on God's green earth can she not do this when I am over the Atlantic? Happens every weekend.

Option #1 - Hit the "P" Key << recommendedOption #2 - Hit the wife <<< NOT recommendedOption #3 - Arrange to live alone << LOTS of free time to flyOption #4 - Teach wife to fly and buy a second computer - then YOU get to interrupt HER when she's on an ILS.Option #5 - Combine Options #2 & 3Just MHO,vgbDISCLAIMER: I DO NOT ENCOURAGE SPOUSAL ABUSE FOR ANY REASON!

Ever noticed the stewardess enter the flight deck just before landing to announce that the cabin is secure? Wife entering room is built into FS2004 (and was in all previous versions). Part of "as real as it gets"!MichaelPS: You can prevent this by editing the fs9.cfg[spouse}Do_not_enter_on-Approach=1

Hmm, this opens up a whole (worm)can of possibilities. Dressing the wife up as youre preferred F/A :D Will be hard to make her come by with peanuts and to check if seat is in upright position though lol :)About the fs9.cfg. In case you people havent noticed, there IS functions for just that purpose ;)PAUSE_ON_LOST_FOCUS=1 :D

And, if it's not the wife, it's the cat - and ALWAYS on finals! I suddenly encounter a thick ginger-striped haze. A previously undocumented hazard but one which is invariably fatal!

This is why pc's have IRQ's...'her indoors' interupts and if ya don't responed in timey fashion you get an error code, this codeis generated by the sim user seeing stars after be 'wellied' bya large frying pan to the back of the head...:-(ps to be safe someone else is writing this for me, I was not here,nope, no way......:-lolS :D

Hi Guys,Here's an answer from a "wife". My husband was laughing so hard reading these messages and then told me what was going on. So I have a response for you. It seems that the time for your final approaches seems to converge with the "honey I need you to...." because you have been on the computer so long that we (wives) do actually need some help by then. It is not a conspiracy, though that's a thought.....Believe me, I don't relish the thought of interrupting a final approach, but how would we possibly know when you have been locked away downstairs for the past______hours ??Have fun with your little video flying games.a wife

I got an answer. We should hook up those cabin bells that we always here while flying with the little blue light that clicks on just outside the cockpit door on the ceiling telling the F/A the flight crew needs something. We can just put the little light with a tiny speaker for the chime in the living room or kitchen.1 chime: We need you to bring us something to eat/drink.2 chimes: FS and/or aircraft is doing something it is not supposed too and do not enter now because our blood pressure/fustration level/swearing is rising proportionatly to the degree of the problem.3 chimes: On finals, do not enter unless house on fire and then only if you cannot control the fire.
