  1. I don't care for mesh, they somehow reflect their 60 grit sand paper sensation onto my back...
  2. This was working fine a couple weeks or more ago. In between that time I updated my Garmin car GPS map and maybe something else got updated (I don't remember). So, somehow in P3D v5 for the GTN 750 in the Catalog I have all flight plans showing "LOCKED". I tried uninstall and reinstalling Reality XP GTN, but they are all still locked. The map is just black, no airport charts, nada. In Apps, I have two Trainers: Garmin Aviation Trainer Garmin GTN Trainer. Is that correct? What might I do to try to fix it?
  3. Wife is learning this now... She always had cavities and lost a couple teeth and now has issues eating because one or two have not been replaced ($5k per tooth). I told her she should brush after every meal. She rarely flosses too. I wish she had taken care of her teeth like her face / skin. First periodontal cost was around $2k out of pocket (that was the "cheap" option, but may have to do additional more expensive work) and will be on going now. She was in pretty bad pain for about two weeks and could only eat soft foods. Something like dentist and periodontist every two months, rotating between the two. I can think of better ways to spend time and money.
  4. Back in November T-Mobile US offered Paramount+ for a year. At first there were no commercials, but lately there have been commercials. It seems that they have different tiers.... The offer is still active: https://www.t-mobile.com/offers/paramount-plus-deal

    Any Sailors here?

    I'm in Sailing Club that teaches basic sailing in NY/NJ: www.sailseas.com I used to do a lot of weekend racing including overnight / offshore: 90 mile offshore overnight "warmup" for longer races - Rockway, NY to Point Pleasant back to finish at Sandy Hook. Around Long Island - about 200 miles Martha's Vineyard Race I was mostly jib and spinnaker trim. Now, I'm day sailing in Greenwood Lake, NY and Budd Lake, NJ. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d3_EgkhOYCjXp3_snf4Pow3Tbgm1Z7gk/view?usp=sharing [/img]
  6. I have 10700k with these settings [JobScheduler] AffinityMask=65535 P3DCoreAffinityMask=21844 MainThreadScheduler=0 RenderThreadScheduler=1 FrameWorkerThreadScheduler=2 My core2 is still running at 100% utilization. I tried moving ActiveSky, Lorby, GoFlight, vpilot, RealityXP GTN to 12 to 14 with ProcessLasso. P3D is not set in PL, just via the config above. Any ideas?
  7. When I go into Orbx Central, I don't see Vector on P3D v5, but it's there on v4. It's also not installed in v4. I only show Africa LC, Africa mesh and Europe as installed there.
  8. VirtualCol released a free version maybe try it? https://www.virtualcol.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=66
  9. Wow, just noticed all 16 cpus cranking along at 100% and found svchost with staterepository consuming it all. Related to Edge. Will try repair of Edge to see if it helps.
  10. If your good with building...see if you can reuse anything. I recently upgraded from 4790k to 10700k, so I just needed new motherboard and memory, keeping psu, cpu fan, drives, 1070, and case. $874 out the door. pcpartpicker is good place to help, plus all the sites about what's good price wise.
  11. Wondering if there was a solution to this? Last weekend KPHL was socked in, but I was showing clear skies.
  12. Seems to help TextureMaxLoad=30
  13. Over Manhattan getting black textures. If Pause it eventually loads. Any ideas? 10700k with 1070 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pmtOvqrNbs2x1VKDgS0_eVtcYvH07paa
  14. Something should be done more with energy audits at the home level and "Energy Star" specifications. My new 65" Energy Star tv used over 250 watts. After a lot of power and screen optimization, I got it down to 80 watts. One day I noticed when it was off it was using 19 watts. There was some hidden remote feature that I disabled and worked for a while, but since various firmware updates, it started using 19 watts again. I hooked up a wifi smart plug to turn it off. My house was built in the late 60s. My first winter the basement got down 32 (one window frame was so badly broken I could an apple through the holes it had). I filled a ton of holes and cracks since then. The lowest I've seen is 65F. In NJ a lot of us have to have radon fans. It burns 100 watts. I'm not sure what could be done to reduce the power usage as it's probably very expensive. But $660 billion to clean up nuclear https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/us-government-works-cocoon-nuclear-reactors-80964651
  15. If your on Cablevision / Optimum, if you change your plan, your upload speed will be downgraded. See https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r33140511-OOL-SPLIT-Upload-Speeds-Decreasing-on-Cable-Plans-July-2021
