  1. The entire state of Idaho is covered by NRM and CRM so it's fully within the full fat areas already.
  2. When you see a cool flight in progress on flightaware and you immediately fire up the sim and "race" them to their destinations
  3. I remember when some dude that went by Koorby wrote a tutorial on how to use LWMViewer2 to make a "VOZplug". Well, I made an "IDAplug" and turned half my home state into something recognizable, lol. Felt like I'd been totally set free armed with that knowledge! Progressed a small amount since then but that's basically what started it all for me. Thanks!
  4. I've been using FlashGet, I can't find where it has the capability of scheduling a download though but what I've done is set it all up with the link to the file and where I want it to be saved, close it, and then use the Windows task scheduler to start it again at 2:05 AM or something. When FlashGet starts up it automatically goes straight to downloading and then it just sits there on the desktop after it's finished until I wake up and close it. Task scheduler is in Programs > Accessories > System tools (on Win7), then when you start it you'll see "Create basic task" on the upper right. It walks you through a wizard thing where you choose a bunch of options and tell it what date/time you want it to happen. I do "Trigger: one time at 2:05 AM on 12/17/2015" for example, and then "Action: Start a program" and then just browse to D:\MSFS\FlashGet 3\Flashget3.exe as the program to start. You could maybe do the same with IDM? I'm not sure as I've never used that one, but I imagine it would work the same? Jim
  5. I had the HughesNet Gen4 service installed last May and I'm completely pleased with it. I just have the cheapie slowpoke plan, it's $50-ish bucks a month. I get about 1.7 Mb/sec pretty consistently, I just looked at my download manager's logs and I downloaded FTX global for example in 46 minutes. For $10 bucks more a month they'll double the speed but I'm cheap and I can live with 46 minutes without too much trauma, lol. Well, hope everything goes OK with KFHR for you, have a great flight!

  7. If you're on satellite you probably have an off-peak data allowance, no? Mine's between 2 and 8 AM and I get 50 Gb per month to burn through during those hours every night without it affecting my anytime data allowance. I could nearly download the entire Orbx catalog monthly without ever exceeding my bandwidth allotment! I usually get up about 5:00 so I have 3 hrs to get all my downloading done, or just generally run amok on the internet without any alarm clock heroics.
  8. No recipe needed but you haven't lived until you've tried chopped fresh cilantro on a BLT!
  9. ...and we all know wings are notorious for falling off. I went helicopter firefighting in the late 80s and at that time a medium heli capable of lifting 335 gallons of water was being paid about $1200/hr. I wonder how much they get per hour with a DC10 tanker in 2015? I'm feeling very fortunate at the moment as we did have some stage 3 evacuations about 20 miles away a week or so ago. It's been so smoky you can barely breathe at times but man I'm not complaining. Also very lucky that the last few storms that passed through have been basically lightning-free. My sincere condolences to those that are currently evacuated and especially those that wont have homes to return to.
  10. I am too but my most recent Fleetwood Mac revival was just two weeks ago so I'm kinda burnt right now. Beautiful Child from Tusk is probably my favorite Fleetwood Mac song, that hasn't changed since I was 14, lol. I'm pretty diverse though, I really got into Cemetery Gates this evening. I think nothing of listening to a song 30 or 40 times when it's sounding good and I think I'm working on about #35 right now.
  11. You guys really made this difficult but put me down for #63!
  12. OK I'll try this one, leaving McCall, ID in CRM, adequate Orbx showng or no?
