  1. and I'll raise you a S)**&^&(%&%*&^!!! There are adhesives available at the car parts store that MAY help. If you run out of ideas. I don't know if that Thrustmaster parts place is still open in Montreal ...
  2. Yea, Taco. I'm going to experiment with these settings - but I'm going to make sure that I still have full control authority. I would like to be able to have more stick throw without pulling the FW190/F4U etc. into a high speed stall ...
  3. Great stuff Brian! The ROF article on the some of the aircraft behaviour in a spin was interesting. BTW - when clicking on your HERE link there is also an article on IL2 - Forgotten Battles - Aces Expansion Pack. At the end of the review is a suggested setup for your joystick that might be of interest to those of us flying IL2. http://www.raes.org.uk/cms/uploaded/files/ForgottenBattlesPCReview.pdf
  4. Impressive (!) pictures Chunk. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/thumbsup.gif&key=740950605ea2b767b0522526afb1c81551f03118b6b4457f095c43ae8aab1fd4"> Your pictures of the SFO Bay area on the other Forums are really cool. Here's one of San Francisco and the Bay area on my last day as an A319/A320/A321 Captain - off to A340/A330 training shortly thereafter. Taken after takeoff on Runway 01R out the side window (very quickly).
  5. Got my schedule for December and I WILL be there. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_biggrin.gif&key=64cd7b7a0036899205810ec0a5b90ed7121d5889dd92733089c47c9758b7f4ae">
  6. Hope you all had a good one and that the tummy medicines were left in the cupboard. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca"> I spent the day flying (not a holiday up here in any case) . Nice and quiet going into San Francisco - ended up flying "in formation" with another Airbus (USAir) both of us doing Visual Approaches maintaining our own separation. He went to 28L and I went to 28R. (From one edge of the runway to the other runway edge, separation is about 500 feet) It was a beautiful day in the Bay area and boy I wish I had taken my camera - but not really the time to be taking pictures. Fifty minutes later we were on our way to Montreal. Out over the Bay off Runway 01R - over Sacramento - over Reno NV - north of Salt Lake City UT - our routing took us north of a straight line to take advantage of the jet stream. By Minot and Fargo ND, by Duluth and Sault St. Marie MN, by North Bay ON, carving down by Maniwaki and Mirabel QC -just short of 5 hours - over 20 minutes early into Montreal. Cleared customs and 2 hours later in a different airplane we were on our way home to Toronto for a relatively short flight. Not a bad day - Vancouver BC to San Francisco CA to Montreal QC to Toronto ON. Thr only guys who seemed grumpy about working the holiday were the US Customs & Immigration people in Vancouver and maybe some of the pilots we heard on the radios. I hope the controllers enjoyed the quiet day and got (or get) an opportunity to enjoy the day with their families. All the best guys - enjoy the rest of the weekend.
  7. http://www.xe.com/ucc/ $34.45CDN at current rates. I was looking at a site in New Zealand wondering if they would ship to Canada - but they wanted $86NZ - which if you do the conversion to Canadian Dollars is about $68CDN - TWICE what the price is in the US. Think I will wait until this other site lists this DVD-ROM.

  9. According to the information on this site - they will ship to Canada. At the moment they do not have IL2 1946 listed. But hopefully soon? http://yhst-12000246778232.stores.yahoo.net/aircombatgames.html Will Manchuria be another full priced DVD?
  10. Wringer unlocks the bottom desk drawer and pulls out a small flask sized bottle and pours Tharn 2 fingers of Buckley's Mixture. "There, that will fix you up Tharn. I suggest you drink it slowly but all in one go. Don't leave until you are finished" /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_twisted.gif&key=76870aa9df6931b692ccc9ef4c7472a7834d1d9dfc6a76eccadd1fa39c0df891"> http://www.buckleys.com/index.html :lol:
  11. When you read this - and I hope it is a few days from now (!) - I hope that you are continuing with your quick recovery. BTW - with this kind of surgery you would normally be grounded for at least 6 months - but I supply the Medical Officer's scotch - so let me know when you are ready to go flying and the Squadron Doc will find you fit. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca"> Take care buddy.
  12. I will sign up when I get my December Schedule. With wanting Christmas off plus a couple of days either side I may have to work a weekend or 2. I will let you know as soon as I can.
  13. What firewall are you using Sandy? This sounds exactly like what I had happen with the home network. I had to go into ZoneAlarm and set up a "Trusted Zone" with a range of IP addresses that were allowed. I had to do this on each computer. When I went from Linksys to D-Link I had to change the IP Range one of the numbers changed ( to had to be changed to to to accomadate the D-Link router.) Otherwise, I could access the internet from each computer but I could not see the other computers on the network - nor the printer that I was sharing. Setting up the Trusted Zone allowed all the computers to show up. The firewall was a little too efficient.
