  1. Good luck convincing people to do that that know nothing other than their chosen career path for their entire lives, supporting their families, to walk into a medical office, admit they have a mental health issue, and lose their jobs and income with nothing else to fall back on. Not to mention the fact that, even if you do go get help and take medication to have it under control, you'll likely lose your medical, anyway. So just because some people do it everyday means it is good enough? In your opinion, everything is good the way it works now? Essentially saying "Well the help is there - they just have to go out and get it"? How do you provide logical reasoning to someone that may not be logical or realize they have a problem?
  2. So you're asking someone with a potentially severe mental health issue to 1) notice that they have a problem, 2) willing to tell someone about it, and 3) be willing to under-go treatment? Absolutely they will. They are going to stamp Denied on your application and tell the airline not to hire you because you admitted to having a mental health issue. Do you think a pilot is going to get a job anywhere if they admit to every potential employer they have mental issues? Do you think any employer wants that kind of liability?
  3. How? Because you happen to be in a field that asks about mental health? And it doesn't change the fact that mental health is largely shunned in this country. I've been a pilot for 16 years. Not once have I been asked about mental health. I also don't own a gun, though, so I guess you could add that to your "invalidated argument" list.
  4. For example, the FAA Medical Certificate evaluations are getting heavy on "sleep apnea". While not admitting you snore isn't grounds for immediate removal, you essentially get reviewed by the FAA Medical and have to then go pay, out of your own pocket, thousands of dollars for a sleep study review and diagnosis, submitting those results to the FAA Medical Office; and potentially having your medical certificate revoked. Do you think many pilots are going to admit they snore?
  5. Sure. But why would anyone admit to having a mental disorder if they aren't required to? You are more often punished for doing so in this country.
  6. When is the last time you filled out any form of an application, registration, or anything of the sort that asked about mental illness? Have you ever had a mental health evaluation? Not only that, if someone is diagnosed as having some form of mental disability, it is often grounds for immediate denial of many things. Rather than offer some form of treatment program to keep their job, they are very often punished for self disclosing.
  7. Eh? Why not just use EZCA than? It works fine.
  8. I believe my first jet flight was about when I was 10 in the mid-90s and it was in a Southwest 737-200, The closest I have come so far to flying a jet is a Level-D simulator, and the closest real airplane is a King Air 200 thus far.
  9. Great paints, Christian! Thanks. Any chance you can keep a running list of what paints you're working on? I just think it'd be interesting. I can't think of any paints off the top of my head that haven't been done already (mostly by you).
  10. As an FYI, the FSUIPC "ding" will come on when you have 300MB or less of VAS remaining before OOM. And yes, the number that you are setting at that offset is displaying bytes left before OOM.
  11. Yeah, you don't see ATRs in the US anymore. The only time I've seen them is when they flew in to DFW but now AE has moved them to the Carribean. I'd say that is an accurate assessment, considering those are the only two commercial turbo-props even made today.
  12. TrackIR didn't solve the problem - you're just compensating for it. People without TrackIR can do the same thing - just move the viewpoint to what you want. However, that doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist.
  13. It is an issue with FSX viewpoint coding and it can't be fixed - it is something we all deal with. It has something to do with your orientation and proximity to the "North Pole" of FSX. Depending how far or close you are to it (i.e. the countries you fly in) will determine how much the viewpoints shift.
  14. http://secure.simmarket.com/taxi2gate.mhtml There are their sceneries that are available on Simmarket and it also includes their release dates. I think it's safe to say that MMMX Xtreme is their flagship, but MCO is their newest. I've heard really good things about MCO, too.
  15. Disk space has nothing to do with memory usage...
