What an interesting flight. Sounds like you need to be a diplomat as well as a pilot.I think FSX is just hitting its stride. Some fantastic add on planes, scenery and utilities have finally arrived. Too bad I am stuck in a hotel room with only my laptop.Welcome back. I would look forward to more flight descriptions.

Peter:Was going to post and see if anyone knew where you had gone.I seem to remember you mentioning some AHEM! marital difficulties andwas hoping that you were not sleeping in a cardboard box somewhere:-roll A buddy of mine came home from a week on the road and found a completelybare house and equally bare bank accounts.My EX was thoughtful enough to leave a mattress, blanket, table and chair, one set of silverware, a cast iron skillet, and the fridge.Seems she didn't need the fridge as it was furnished in her apartment.Anyhow....Welcome back!!!

Hi Peter,Very good to hear from you and would love to see the shots of your adventure... and many others ;). As Geoff will tell you I got stung by Baron fever last year and haven't been able to think of anything else. You missed a lot of frustration with FSX but with SP2 (get Acceleration) I am finally finding that I do in fact like it. As a matter of fact FSX w/SP2 has finally managed to capture some of that magic "feel" that Richard Harvey managed to portray so many years ago with Fly.

Hi Peter,Nice to have an 'oldtimer' back :)As a must have I'd say SP2.I've got the SP2 that comes with the Acceleration add-on 'cause as a real life airline-only-pilot I didn't want to the miss carrier ops and very high performance AC ;)Otherwise FSX is very nice already out of the box.No way of going back to FS9. For the 'other' part I see surprisingly many similarities...The day before yesterday we flew VIE-ORD as far as 67N.We had a (very seldom) great view of iceland, greenland, etc..Very impressive. Such flights make life easier as I'm divorced for the second time and just in the process of parting with my long time girlfriend. No fun at all. (At least this time it isn't THAT expensive)Anyway, you'll see FSX is very nice (BTW, x-plane also improved very much in the meantime!)Regards and keep the blue side up :)Bernt Capt 767

Well in Fla or the South of Spain a cardboard box might not be toobad, but where I live they're kinda drafty.:-violin Yes and I'd always heard "If it comes equipped with tires or ___you gonna have trouble with it.":-zhelp As to the racy vs the durable,hopefully you'll outgrow the finicky, High Maintenance equipment.I believe it was W.C. Fields who said "Ah yes; I was once married to abeautiful blond......She drove me to drink....it's the only thing I'mindebted to her for." :-badteeth :-beerchug

Welcome back, Peter. I wondered where you had gone off to. Always enjoyed your posts.I am loving FSX more every day. Took a while and a new system (so what else did you expect?) but it is an exceptional bit of software. The quality of the add-ons like Active Sky and Ground Environment X make it so much more enjotable. Fired up FS9 on an old system the other night and it just doesn't even come close.VicQ6600 G0 CPU 2.4 o/c 3.65Evga 680i A1 with P31 BIOS 2G XP2-8500 DDR2 1066FSB Mushkin 996535 RAM 5-5-4-12-2T320G 7200 HD partitioned for XP/Vista/Programs 2 - 74G Raptors in RAID0 500G 7200 HD for backup SATA DVD burner Evga 8800GTS 640 PCIx 169.13 betaKandalf LCS case w/ built in liquid cooling 850W Thermaltake power supplyVisit the Virtual Pilot's Centerwww.flightadventures.comhttp://www.hifisim.com/banners/hifi-supporter-sigbanner.jpg

Peter, I just rejoined this forum yesterday after years of just lurking and being waay more involved with the home sim building side of FS. I now have a Learjet 45 full size flight sim, and I have to say that FS9 looks great with it, but I look forward to FSX once I get a new PC. Peter, although Ive been gone from posting here for a long time, I remember your 'face' around here and it's good to hear from you.To Chris Porter in Perth, were you aware that there is a few full size sim builders in your neck of the woods that would probably be glad to host you over to see their sims? Check out www.mycockpit.org and lookup a bloke named Westozy. Tell him that Eric Tomlin sent you from MC.org.
