  1. "Surf's up". There is always someone with a wee remark like that. Congratulations on being fairly high up, mate.
  2. I like to keep spoken and written English different. Having said that, I will sometimes use a "whom" when I speak just to enjoy the reaction!! 😁 Interesting post, my friend!
  3. As a self-effacing Glaswegian, I was being a wee bit tongue in cheek! 😜🙇‍♂️ I have been in Japan for over 25 years and passed a "3000 kanji" proficiency test about 12 years ago. The pass rate for native speakers (or "writers" is about 10%). People thought I was a weirdo! They weren't wrong. 🤣 I sometimes hear the number of 50,000 for kanji, and some of my older dictionaries might have something near that! In a parallel life, I would love to quit my job and live devote more time to learning them, however useless they may be! 😄 Nice to hear from another language fan! Have a nice weekend!
  4. Japanese is probably easier than Glaswegian!! 🤣
  5. scotcheggさん、宜しければいつでもその言語を私と一緒に使ってみてください。私の出身地はscotch的な場所ですよ!造船の町さ! (I have just invited Mr. scotchegg (whom I hope is also conversant in Glaswegian!) to blether with me in Japanese now and then 😄 ) What a beautiful topic this is indeed!
  6. None allowed on domestic Japanese flights. I still remember the Japanese guys I used to work with insisting on flying from London to Tokyo and back on JAL because it was the last airline to implement a total ban on international routes into Japan. I think that must have been around 1999.
  7. Oops. Still not great at this posting malarkey! Please ignore this post. Tried to do something else and ended up quoting myself!
  8. I am in complete agreement. I paid between 55 and 60 Euros for each of the boxed scenery as I live in Japan, and their support has pretty dire. Wing Creation just vanished and left their offerings at V2 or something. I look forward to the fresh input from other companies. I will stay with V4.5 for at least a few years (only switched to it from FSX in January) as I still am amazed at the cockpit shadows and the fact that my 4GB limit for VAS is now gone. With that and all of this new development on the horizon, I feel so happy I could start skipping and singing up and down the Alps like Heidi!!
  9. Their homepage only shows V4 compatibility (update v1.03 and v1.05) for the boxed version and SimMarket only mentions up to V4. V5 doesn't appear to be supported yet, mate. Pity with the DD Haneda announcement. I am rather keen on putting their version in instead. Will wait.
  10. I bought the DD Narita a few hours ago (bought it in 10 seconds without even looking at the features and pics) and just finished my first flight from it. I think it is an excellent piece of work and the latest charts match it as far as I can see. I must have used Narita in real life about 70 or 80 times at least in the last two decades. I have watched it change and grow, and it is great to have something that matches the airport today. The detail is really something. I look forward to the Haneda version with anticipation. Txxxxxbrain did a fairly passable job of Haneda, but their decision to refuse to offer the P3D upgrade for some of their other sceneries to loyal box owners who forked out exorbitant Japan prices before they made their SimMarket debut was bang out-of-order. As such, I look forward to binning it once the DD version comes out. DD Narita is an absolute belter of a scenery and I will be flying there a lot more now. P.S. I thought about waiting for the other one, but the support for the previous 6 or 7 DD sceneries I have made me take the plunge.
  11. That's the one, Father! I remember DELTA being called "Don't Ever Land There Again" after a mishap where the pilot landed on a taxiway!
  12. I remember a Belgian airline being described as Such A Bad Experience Never Again. Can't remember the name of the airline! 🤭 I will, however, miss the 747. Had some nice flights on AFR, BAW, KLM, JAL and ANA Queens to and from Japan over the years.
  13. I wear one any time I go out to work or buy necessities here. I don't like wearing them, but they will reduce the probability to some extent and it is simply a case of keeping your probability of infection as low as possible. Even if it is only a few percent. Living in Japan, wearing a mask is never anything out of the ordinary here, but on my trip to Ireland at the start of February I felt weird (and didn't bother wearing it) as nobody had one. Please look after yourself, Father. It is going to be a very different Triduum than we are used to for this year. Neil
  14. That is a fantastic piece of insight into the operation behind the scenes. I should pass it on to my Dad, as he often flies in them to EGJB. I remember the stick on the Flight1 version and was wondering if it appears on the Carenado one. Maybe not. I hope it won't be long before you are getting the number of aircraft ready for departure that you were before this pandemic. Thanks again for a very interesting addendum! Neil
