  1. Thanks guys. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who sometimes struggles with this stuff........Doug
  2. ...for the rant I threw the other day in my frustration with being unable to reinstall TrueEarth GB South. It was uncalled for and in the future I'll try a little harder to not air my frustrations here..........Doug
  3. I too would like to read some comments about this Stew. I have to chuckle at some of the responses here. It's amazing to me how much lack of knowledge and misinformation is floating round these forums. I was in the IT business for almost 40 years so it's not like I don't understand the issues and problems associated with an OS and aging code. That said, Windows 7 is not, IMNSHO, the issue here. But, like you, I'm always willing to learn something new and maybe some of the folks here can enlighten us.........Doug
  4. You may well be right. I've had XP11 installed for quite a while but I've never really used it. Thanks.....I'll give it another try..............
  5. OK...here's the deal. I'm finally done with all TE products. Fresh install of Windows 7. Fresh install of P3Dv4.5.12.30293. All I wanted to do is see what's the best performance I could get from GBS TE. No other add-ons installed.The result of the GBS TE install? Three hours of "scanning"! It refuses to install. I'm done with any TE product, ever. Back to flying and enjoying life. End of rant and flame suit on..........Doug
  6. You've got it made now......I just wish I was young enough to fly again and join you in the air....sigh....Doug
  7. In an earlier thread I was complaining about an OOM situation with P3Dv4.5 when using GB TE South. VAS would go to 20+GB and the RAM working set would go to 16+GB and then the dreaded OOM would occur (I have 16GB of physical RAM installed). I fixed the pagefile issue (thanks again Nick) but then there was so much pagefile usage it was a slideshow. Whatever LM did with the 4.5 hotfix also solved that problem. With the same settings the working set is now down to 3.8GB and the VAS is down to 8.6GB on my test flight from EGLC to EGLL. I'm sooooo glad to see this as I was dreading to have to update my somewhat older hardware before I could run TE scenery. Now all we need is PNW TE ..........Doug
  8. Willkommen im Forum. Dort haben wir noch keinen Veröffentlichungstermin, aber es sollte bald sein. (Entschuldigen Sie meine schlechte Übersetzung).
  9. Been there and done that. An absolutely amazing city. I lived and worked in San Francisco for many years but it pales in comparison the Sydney..........Doug
  10. I agree about the videos. I never watch any of that stuff. Most of it is just crap. RTFM. And if there is no manual just figure it out on your own............Doug
  11. Sometime in October 1956 I fell in love for the first time. I was a freshman in high school. I decided to cut classes one afternoon and went downtown to watch a movie. The movie was Love Me Or Leave Me with Doris Day. And I fell in love with her. I cut classes for the next two days to watch that movie again and again. I was 13 and she was 34. But I never thought about that then. I learned today that she passed away not 10 miles from where I used to live. I'll always remember those days and I'll always remember Doris and her dogs and what she did to promote animal rights. As Bob Hope used to say.........thanks for the memories..................
  12. I'm still here John. My doctors tell me time is not on my side now but I'll be here as long as I can. As Matthew says, winter is coming..........Doug
  13. I couldn't agree more. WD Black drives with their five warranty are the only way to go. I have 10 of them ( six external) and have only had two failures in the last nine years. I have four internal 3TB Black drives and have just ordered 6TB Black drives to replace them. The WD warranty service is second to none.Try them...you'll like them................Doug
