  1. Topic locked. See here. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/646484-xbox-outage/
  2. This is the latest from the BBC… ”Everything points to this being a Crowdstrike issue. If it was a Windows issue it would be even more widespread. The irony here, of course, is that Crowdstrike is a cyber-security product, so designed to protect computer networks from outages. In this case it looks like it was that software that’s led to these huge issues.” Oh, the irony. 🤨
  3. I’m still unaware what you’re paying for with such an enormous premium.
  4. I searched for Gsync Ultimate monitors and the top model came out as the Viewsonic Elite. What astonished me was the price! Nearly three times what I paid for my BenQ 6 years ago. Are they really worth the enormous premium? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B094RG7GYR?tag=ceukreviews298921-21&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1
  5. Probably because he manages a Manchester football club. ETH also lives in Manchester. 😁
  6. Absolutely no chance of him. He’s expressed an interest in Brazil, never England.
  7. I wouldn’t be so sure of that. And we’ve tried foreign coaches before but they didn’t succeed with Capello being far worse than Sven. Who would you propose?
  8. Someone once said of the England team… “lions in autumn, lambs in spring.” There’s no doubt the Premier League is a tiring competition. No winter break either this season and 8 CL matches instead of 6 won’t help either. Spain were worthy winners but England got very close to taking it to extra time with Spain clearing headers off the line near the end. Back to our clubs now with friendlies starting soon before it all kicks off again next month preceded by the Charity Shield with Man City v Man Utd. Hopefully they’ll kick lumps out of each other. 😁
  9. @ATRguy, despite my earlier post requesting users stay on topic you ignore it. Post hidden.
  10. @GAJ52, what is the model number? Be very careful about choosing based on Amazon reviews. Independent reviews are the best. I’m assuming if you’ve invested in a 4090 your budget is reasonably high for a quality monitor. It will probably last many years. The BenQ also has two USB ports on the side allowing easy access for external drives etc. it’s a very well built display too.
  11. @spilok clear skies for me once I crossed the Dutch coastline. Berlin is closer than I thought. Around 1h 40m for a 07R landing. Thanks! 👍 Fingers crossed for tonight.
  12. Got my flight planned for tomorrow morning. EGCC-EDDB in my trusty 737NGXu. Considerably cheaper than what all the major airlines are charging. Flamin’ outrageous, all of them. 🤨🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
  13. Keep Rodri quiet and that weakens the Spain attack. He had the same impact at Man City. When he was missing they became a very beatable side. Same applied to Haaland. Cut off the supply and he hardly got involved. Onto tomorrow and I think England will match Spain for large parts of the game. It’s what happens in those few moments of brilliance. I can’t help thinking with the extra time equaliser against Slovakia and the last minute winner against The Netherlands our name is on the cup. Spain peaked too early. 😁 England to win in extra time.
