Its enabled on my blog control panel. Thats way out of my area, but I wonder if when I went to moderated comments ( due to a blog spamming episode I was suffering from ) that something changed.There isnt much I can do to fix that, I just use the control panel and hope things work. :-).

This thing has been rife with delays and problems. I for one will be very happy when/if it ever comes out so we can move on to the business of getting some 3rd party addons. Thanks for the info Phil, even if it is the usual another two to four week delay kind that we don't like but have gotten used to.________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

Thank you Phil for being so forthright and communicative to the flight sim community.A story comes to mind I experienced a few weeks ago. I was flying standby on a major airline (standby=free-my daughter works for them). I was in Phoenix waiting for a connection to Detroit. The pilot came out right before departure and very apologetically explained that due to weight restrictions-even though he had enough empty seats to take the 6 standby passengers-that he would be unable to take us and that we would have to wait for another flight two hours later. He then recalculated again in an attempt to make it work and very sadly confirmed that he just couldn't do it. I was surprised when one of the 6 fellow standby (employee based) passengers started fuming and ranting that this was ridiculous, and that she would never fly standby again....etc...etc. I was rather embarrassed-especially for the pilot that was just trying his best to make it work.It could be me-but I found myself wondering if a)she preferred that the captain put all of his passengers including her in danger and :( how one could complain about something that was freely offered. But again-it is probably just me... :-)

some people are just never happy and stop complaining. After you release SP1 these same people will find something else to complain about! All I can say it great work Phil! I can't wait for the sp1 but please take your time and get it done right!

Thanks Phil,I can only speak for myself, but I appreciate that you keep quality on a higher priority level than the time schedule. The regular and informative updates on SP1 progress is very comforting. In my opinion this new approach from Microsoft, compared to other FS releases, to engage in and interact with the FS community, is a very significant and important step. It's very, very professional.Ulf BESML

Thanks Phil.There are those who cannot seem to understand that the enhanced visibility provided by more open communication comes with the downside of a more bumpy ride (adjustments to estimates, etc.). You cannot have one without the other.-Doug

I was returning from my father's funeral yesterday and all was well until I arrived Cleveland. My outbound flight to PVD was way behind- the aircraft had *just* left CLE for ORD and needed to return before getting us off to PVD. It was the last bank, so there were not later alternative options back East, and my wife was home and 8mos pregnant. It's a Chataqua flight (on a CRJ no less) a new COA partner There were some irritated people, but the gate agent kept going into the system with updates and EVEN CALLED THE GATE AT ORD for updates. It was like being in ORD- every time something happened, we knew. we were the only flight with an issue (except for a single canceled flight to Louisiville)At one point about 9PM one of the service desk personnel came to me and asked why I was still there- I told here that the plane was still inbound from ORD and should arrive in about 30 minutes.Finally they deboarded, and we got on. to add insult to injury, they were repositioning the B1900's and blocked us for a bit, and we needed extra gas due to arrival weather (PVD was 200/1 when we arrived).Most airline employees are trying to do their best for the passengers. Sometimes the just don't know the tools at hand. Being a jerk does not help. Being nice goes much further than being mean.
