  1. I am not ORBX, just a long time ORBX user who loves to fly Bush and Float Planes in Washington State so I feel that I am qualified to make this comparison. Two mornings ago at 10:15 I started the download and install process for TE Washington on my mid range computer. I always download with a backup and file verification. My download speed averaged around 2.5 Mbs and the whole process took over 10 hours to complete. Was tying up my computer for that long worth it? Hell yes it was. This is the most beautiful scenery that I have ever flown and my frame rates improved over P3ds' While flying down the North Shore of Orcas Island I saw beaches, piers, and other structures that I have never seen before. I added Darrington, Anacortes, and Pearson Field to the mix and they were all breathtaking compared to P3d. I know that ORBX is going to continue to pick my pocket as they release the rest of their titles for the area, something that has been happening ever since I first downloaded and installed 3W5 Concrete in 2009 and discovered how good FSX could look. Oh well, at least I get a hefty discount because I own all of the NA titles. It will help to pay for that Super Sized drive I will need to store them.
  2. We are still here John, although sometimes I wonder about it.
  3. This could be how our parents spent a night out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nUIV5-Ssd4
  4. And you said, "Oh and as I've said before, the English are best too." Careful, they may revoke your passport.
  5. Johnny, I'm a Yank and it's feet, inches, yards, and miles here. What s crew this is. A happy go lucky bunch, hangar flying and sharing our past life, all the while knowing that we are all passengers on the same plane, flying West, parachutes on, awaiting our turn at the door. I am so glad to be here with you, so while we wait, have another round on me. Dale
  6. LMAO and ROFL Is your Doctor aware of your delusions? I know your wife is because she allows you to keep them.
  7. You forgot to mention the mechanic that is required to keep them going Dale.
  8. I have been recovering from a move from my beloved West Texas desert to Baton Rouge, LA and the rain that comes with it. Last September it became obvious to me that I was not going to be able to continue to live alone and accepted my son's constant pleas to move in with him. I left my 2 acres and traded it in for a 9x12 room and I have been trying to fit my stuff into that small space. A new flight sim setup and all of the problems that come with it. I will try to be more attentive to the group. Dale
  9. I have 2 wives waiting for me, I don't expect much peace. Dale
  10. Yes, but not as much as in the '40s thru the '70s
  11. The differences are subtle and are impossible to hear in the under 30 crowds. Now it's mostly word usage without the original tones.
  12. Born in California -- 1937 Moved to Dallas, TX -- 1941 Grew up in New Orleans - -1942 - 1951 Lived in Auburn, California-- 1951 - 1952 Lived in Shreveport.

This exercise has helped to renew old memories, both good and bad, like how I convinced a girl I met in Oklahoma City to marry me after only 3 weeks of courtship. She stuck with me for the next 42 years when I lost her to heart failure. Dale
