  2. I see a new article on this topic, noting that the time frame of Bezos' prediction of home delivery by Amazon drones has come and gone. He said four to five years in 2013, I believe. https://www.apnews.com/e0fcf74b9a9d46d1a7c57463cf6f668c I note three old threads on this topic, including this one. The other two are... Amazon delivery drones are coming... https://mutleyshangar.com/forum/index.php?/topic/11729-amazon-delivery-drones-are-coming/&tab=comments#comment-98892 Amazon really UP to it this time... https://mutleyshangar.com/forum/index.php?/topic/21904-amazon-rea
  3. I use DuckDuckGo for a search engine, for the same reason and have as little to do with Google as possible, aside from Google Earth, which is just too darned good to boycott. John
  4. Most do - that's why they get so upset when someone pees in their cornflakes. It's an old Navy/power plant expression to describe someone's behavior when they are obviously upset but the reason is not apparent. John
  5. The only Saitek hardware I have is their Cessna Trim Wheel (now unavailable - no longer made) and it works fine plugged into USB 3.0 ports. Everything else I use in the way of hardware is CH, plus the TrackIR - those work fine. John
  6. I'm pretty sure all USB connected devices will plug into newer USB ports. My mid-2000s era CH yoke and pedals work fine plugged into USB 3.0 ports on my PC and on a powered USB 3.0 hub. No problems with either connections or performance. Understand that older USB devices will not benefit from the higher speed capabilities of the newer ports, but they should work as well as they ever did. Devices like that don't need the higher speeds anyway. The amount of data being sent by FS devices is miniscule compared to what the ports are designed for. John
  7. OK, didn't realize there were two different outfits doing FS shows in the US - FSCon and FS Expo? Still don't really understand what the FSCon stuff is all about but obviously someone has peed in someone else's cornflakes. John
  8. Any chance this is a hoax, i.e. a hacking of the site? I wonder also if the Orlando location is down the tubes and someone is bitter about that? John
  9. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone here. John
  10. Happy Birthday, Coff. You're a good man. Hope you have a great one. Be careful breathing the air out there. John
  11. Quickmarch e-mailed me this, asking if there was a way to post it. Giving it a try. I'm not sure if this will be viewable or not. When I began to watch this I thought it was a hoax but after seeing the whole thing I think this kid is a genuine prodigy. I hope he doesn't waste his talents by becoming a mere airliner captain. He appears capable of much more than that. John https://1drv.ms/v/s!Am3hRJmvUbZRkyCAc9y1IDKb17qc
  12. Wreck found, partially imploded, at about 900 meters depth. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-argentina-submarine/argentine-sub-found-partially-imploded-after-yearlong-search-idUSKCN1NM08B Submarine implosions normally occur when the stern section folds inward into the forward section, compressing itself along the long axis of the boat. The rapid compression of the air within causes immediate, extreme heating of the air, as in the cylinder of a diesel engine. Spare a thought for the crew and their families. John
  13. March's screenshots.... John
  14. March, If you e-mail or PM me the pics I'll post them in this thread. I'm using the free allotment of MS OneDrive that comes with Win10 to self-host and it works pretty well. John
  15. Out, damn spot! That line didn't work for Hillary and Bill either, any more than it did for MacBeth's wife and her husband. John
  16. Done. Absent from their list of participating organizations is L-M P3D, but probably reflects that they are supposedly not permitted to market to the FS entertainment market. John
  17. Happy to hear you got it fixed, March. Given that FSX is kind of long in the tooth now, there probably aren't too many "new" problems out there. For most things, someone, somewhere, at some time in the past has beat his head on the same rock. Flight simmers seem to be pretty good about documenting all kinds of arcane things so an Internet search sometimes yields a gem or two. Good for you. Sorry I wasn't able to be more help. John
  18. Great news, Steph. After seeing the thread title I had visions that someone had jerked your chain. Happy to hear that's not the case. John
  19. OK - full disclosure here - 71, in my case. I can't imagine why anyone would have taken the time to do that. John

  21. An old man calls his son and says, "Listen, your mother and I are getting divorced. Forty-five years of misery is enough." "Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams. “We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,” he says. "I'm sick of her face, and I'm sick of talking about this, so call your sister and tell her," and he hangs up. Now, the son is worried. He calls his sister. She says, "Like hell they’re getting divorced!" She calls their father immediately. "You’re not getting divorced! Don't do another thing. The two of us are flying home tomorrow to ta
  22. It's reported to be a 737 MAX 8. Odd place to see the first report, but it appears to be a real event and not a hoax. John https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2018/10/28/breaking-indonesias-lion-air-has-lost-contact-with-fl-jt610-a-737-max-8-flying-out-of-jakarta/
  23. http://www.fox5ny.com/news/new-titanic-will-sail-from-dubai-in-2022 He's back.... Now out to 2022. I still don't think it's going to happen, but we'll see. John
