  1. Happy Birthday Holger, hope its a good one
  2. Firefighter Andrew O'Dwyer was born in Sydney, this was performed by people in attendance at the funeral and closed out the funeral as they drove him off. Remember the Haka is multicultural and doesn't just belong to New Zealand, it is performed throughout Polynesia, the University of Hawaii NCAA Football Team also performs the Haka during pregame, therefore the Haka also belongs to Americans too, here is an example of their Haka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8Rmb-ZuR1w
  3. Firefighter Andrew O'Dwyer farewell with a Haka. I've always found the Haka powerful and emotional in these moments, a fitting farewell. RIP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLq2eN2E43Q
  4. I would have done the same, just the case though and not the peripherals. Too much of a pain replacing a PC Glad to hear you are safe I have lots of great memories at Coffs Harbour.
  5. The largest fires in recorded history was the 1974 to 1975 bush fires. That one burned around 117 million hectares of land across Australia. This 2019 to 2020 has burned 6.3 million hectares so far, so this one is a long way off the fires in the mid 70s You can see a lot of the recorded fires on this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushfires_in_Australia Here is another article I found comparing seasons in modern history https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7838193/How-current-bushfire-crisis-compares-biggest-blazes-Australias-history.html
  6. Yes our skies in Wellington have been filled with haze from the smoke as well, and we are 4500 kilometers away.
  7. Happy New Year everyone, hope all is well with our Aussie Friends on here, the smoke has reached us all the way in New Zealand now and our sun went orange today. Be Safe
  8. I will be enjoying P3D for a few years to come as the addon's are plenty, At one time I owned everything ORBX sold so hopefully I can catch up to the entire library once again.
  9. I primarily fly New Zealand, secondary Australia and Canada, then USA and Europe. Usually scenery purchases dictate where I go so I get my moneys worth. I will admit I have purchased some scenery even a year ago and haven't even been there yet, this is because of grabbing stuff in a sale and not having the time to explore what I purchased, but at least ORBX gets support for future development and a designer gets paid
  10. When you look at specs we seem to have cornered the market with 4790K and 1080GTX, me included. These hardware are no longer available but the new stuff out there works great too. Keep in mind the new Flight Sim will be out soon so I would wait and see what that requires before a major upgrade, that way you pave the way for the future as well.
  11. I am thinking that since the scenery is 'Augmented' from Bing Maps created "on the fly" and it has 40,000 default airports that doesn't sound like much opportunity for development.... However if those 40,000 airports are rather generic looking in the default package this would be the opportunity for third party developers to create premium third party airports, much like we already do. The days of large regional scenery development may be over but local premium airports may still have its place. I would like to see our good friends at ORBX continue to play a part in the future.
  12. 48 Years old now but I have a 1 year old and a 4 year old in the house so they keep my young
  13. I said that, I pointed out prior to that post that our model was made in Rayong factory in Thailand and then I said This is your truck as sold in New Zealand What he and I had was rapport which is a positive thing compared to nitpicking If you go back and read those threads again I didn't say it was the same thing, it was a positive conversation that led to his learning about Holden which is a good thing But if you want to nitpick there are probably 60% similarities on common parts found from various suppliers from around the world found on each vehicle and differences as well, the biggest difference of course being Left Hand drive vs Right Hand drive. Now we are getting into the tip of the iceberg on differences but yes common parts as well
  14. This is your truck as sold in New Zealand, notice the logo on the front is the Holden Lion: https://www.holden.co.nz/cars/colorado
  15. In Australia and New Zealand General Motors are called Holden, in Europe they were called Opel until GMC sold that off recently. Holden has been around over 100 years now and was taken over by GMC in early 1900's, they have sold a lot of models that were never available in the USA, if you remember the original Mad Max movie they used a 1973 Holden Monaro, a lot of Australian Muscle cars were not available in the USA and vice versa, here is a good history about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden The Holden Commodore is another model that has been popular for decades and used as police interceptors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden_Commodore
