About Me

  • About Me
    I've been simming since the Timex Sinclair, probably more 30 years or so, and I've owned and used every version of Flight Simulator since the beginning. In P3D v4.5 HF3 and v5, I enjoy flying both GA aircraft and airliners.

    In my real life, I'm an administrator at the university where I've worked for over 20 years. My background is teaching English--so mind your p's and q's. As for hobbies, flight simming is my main one, but I am a huge ice hockey fan as well: I enjoy watching (go, Canucks!) and playing the game (I'm a goaltender).

  1. Thanks. It's not often that one sees funny obituaries, and that has to be one of the funniest I've ever read. Mr. Cassidy must have had a great sense of humour, and bravo to his family for following through in that vein with the obit. Gotta say, though, that I'm the same age as Mr. Cassidy. That kinda hit home.
  2. I suggest that you open a ticket with PMDG Customer Support.
  3. In the Boeing FMC, there is no DIRECT TO button, as you've indicated: on the FMC, you have to select the waypoint you want (push the left line select key next to the name) so that it appears in the scratchpad. You then click on the current waypoint (the top one) to replace it with the waypoint you selected. You'll then have to execute the command. See this short (31 second) YouTube clip for a real world example with a 747 FMC. Same concept in the 737, though.
  4. This almost happened to me in Japan. I was crossing a busy street in Nagoya and was about to step off the sidewalk when my Japanese friend pulled me back suddenly. I had instinctively looked left and had started to cross the street when I didn't see any oncoming traffic. I was shocked at how inattentive I had been ... but I learned my lesson.
  5. Thanks again, @BostonJeremy77. Our settings are similar: the only difference is that I have payware airports. Hmm. Going to spend my Saturday morning doing some testing.
  6. Thanks, @BostonJeremy77! I'm going to try your settings. One more thing ... do you have any air traffic set? I use AIM and have set airliners and GA to 70%.
  7. @BostonJeremy77 ... whoa! That's great! You don't get VRAM out-of-memory errors? What's your memory usage with these settings?
  8. I have a few airliners that I fly regularly, and out of them all, the FSLabs 319 and 32x get the lion's share of my time.
  9. Wow! Thanks for the head's up.
  10. Nice! What settings are you using?
  11. I have a 2060 with 6 gigs, and I use both P3D v5 and the Maddog with no CTDs. I've pared down my settings and don't use EA.
  12. No problem, Ray. None taken. Canadian English is an interesting hybrid: our vocabulary is (i) strongly influenced by our neighbour to the south, but (ii) we hold onto our past, especially in our spellings. At the same time, (iii) we have vocabulary that is all our own and not found in other English-speaking countries with quite the same use. Examples: for (i), we use "trunk," "hood," "truck," and "elevator," as all are used in the States, but not "boot," "bonnet," "lorry," and "lift" as is used in England. For (ii), we hold onto our "-our" spellings, as in "neighbour" as I used above, and the letter "z" is pronounced "zed," not "zee." For (iii), we use "parkade," "washroom" (not "restroom" or "lavatory"), "toque," "loonie," "twoonie," and a whole host of others that our American and British friends might struggle to understand. I believe that we share some similarities with Australian English, although I would guess there are fewer Americanisms in use there.
  13. "Arithmetic" is still used for simple calculations in Canada. For example, elementary school-aged children study arithmetic. That said, I think that "math" is also used as well ... as in the "new math" that started being taught in elementary schools years ago. Anyway, math is used at higher levels as well. I was the Associate Dean of the Faculty of Science and Horticulture for a number of years at a local university (I moved onto a directorship in November, 2020), and Math was one of the seven departments and programs in the Faculty. So ... math was taught (e.g., MATH 1100) in the Math Department. 🙂
  14. Well, to be fair, it's called "math" in Canada, too.
