  1. Makes you wonder why we are so full of ourselves to think we are the ONLY intelligent life in the universe. Umm, Perc, I'm so sorry. Is that why you bought the bigger boat? :P :D
  2. Memories, yes. SO many different things we did as kids with our friends. How many of you spent the spring months building model ships from various era preparing for the inevitable 4th of July naval battle in someone's pool? M80s, cherry bombs and firecrackers tossed at your opponents fleet. All fun and games until the sides of the pool get blown out and you flood their parents yard! That's when you found out who could run the fastest! :D
  3. I certainly echo the sentiments of all who attended the Dayton gathering of WingWalkers and thank everyone who put forth such a great effort in so many ways. I could take this time to post my highlights of the trip but, if you would allow me, I would like to post from the bowels of my emotions and spirituality at this time. Friday night's WW dinner was a marriage of pure joy and absolute sorrow. I was quieter than my usual self that night because I was wrestling deep inside as to whether I was going to say a few words about Art. Chuck certainly gave everyone that opportunity as he opened the floor and I was about to take advantage of it but, I couldn't. You see, I have not yet grieved over the loss of my friend of 30 years. I feared that I would lose all control of my emotions and turn such a joyous event into something Art would not have wanted. One of my prepared speeches was actually a poem that moved me so very deeply at my most recent family loss that truly hit the mark and represents so well Art's life and the Memorial Award in his honor. Allow me to share it with you now. The Dash - by Linda Ellis I read of a man who stood to speak At the funeral of a friend He referred to the date on her tombstone From the beginning to the end. He noted that first came her date of her birth And spoke the following date with tears, But he said what mattered most of all Was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time That she spent alive on earth And now only those who loved her Know what that little line is worth. For it matters not how much we own; The cars, the house, the cash, What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash. So think about this long and hard Are there things you'd like to change? For you never know how much time is left That can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough To consider what's true and real And always try to understand The way other people feel. And be less quick to anger, And show appreciation more And love the people in our lives Like we've never loved before. If we treat each other with respect, And more often wear a smile Remembering that this special dash Might only last a little while. So, when your eulogy is being read With your life's actions to rehash Would you be proud of the things they say About how you spent your dash? Art lived a good dash. I miss him. Sorry for the long post.
  4. I had an absolute blast this weekend! I wouldn't call it "meeting" everyone for the first. It was more like a costume party where we knew everyone already but just had to figure out who was behind the "mask". Why we chose the "masks" and bodies we did is beyond me! :shock: The whole trip was worth it and more. Just seeing Dubya launch 20' out of his chair when the Blue Angels snuck up from behind us was worth its weight in gold! :D I can't wait for all the pictures everyone took to come together in a WW photo album. Thanks everyone for a once in a lifetime memory! Reunions will be great but there's something special about that first time. I am honored to have been a part of it.
  5. Sorry, Tom. Please tell Donna to get better real soon. My prayers are with you both.

  8. Its a time off issue. He MAY fly in but then need a ride from the airport. Can we accomodate? I'll post more details as I know them. BTW, who holds the tickets? Are they at an on call office or are they being given out at the dinner? Mailed to WW already?
  9. Oh, you are just shutting down and cutting off the fuel supply to a damaged engine on a multi-engine rig. Why didn't you just say that? /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca"> I still don't know "feather prop". Didn't know they were ticklish. :D
  10. ***Dusting off dirty, gutter mind*** :D I just received word from Brian he MAY NOT be able to get the time off for Dayton. Can I hook a ride with you and Mike?
  11. Ahhh, I have my mechanic do that stuff. :? /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_redface.gif&key=b30c314ea10c72f3d32953a265be0c32a1435b472bb99313e5e3656e23efc144"> Are you kiddin' me, Sensei? Mixture? Feather Prop? Whatchadoodle to the flamadiddle. Am I getting PhD credits for these courses? :shock: I'll deal with that stuff after I re-learn how to fly these buggers. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca">
  12. So it sounds from all this that I do not need the SST profiler software for the X52 as it appears you are simply mapping all controls IN GAME for each available mode on your joystick. Is this a correct assumption or do I have to set up a profile first in Saitek's software and then perform the IN GAME mapping as you prescribe? It's starting to become clear as mud. Progress! /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_biggrin.gif&key=64cd7b7a0036899205810ec0a5b90ed7121d5889dd92733089c47c9758b7f4ae">
  13. How do you keep it so WWCleanandneat? :? /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca">
  14. I'm sure they'll take care of this smelly ol' skunk too, but, it would be nice to return the favor to the "young guns" sometime. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca">
  15. Well help me understand what is obvious to you all. Yes, I can program 3 modes into my controller but, certain mappings have to be defined "in game". By changing modes, wouldn't I still have to remap those commands each time I switched? Unless you are ONLY changing controls that the game would recognize automatically? Am I making sense?
