  1. Somehow missed this thread. Those Replikas are sweet looking and probably a good thing I didn't see it because WANT NOW. Chunk, sweet pedals man! Griph, let me know how you like the Honeycomb throttle. I'm waiting on mine to come at the end of April.
  2. Understand your point Griphos. The 93% number comes from ERCOTs own data and webpage. They produce a high of 60% of all power in the summer time (it fluctuates week to week) and between 16%-25% in winter. 23% comes from the "average" over the last 5 years. I took all the data from ERCOT's own page and the EIA. ERCOT is claiming to be a non-profit, non-state agency but that isn't how they operate when there isn't a crisis. I spent enough time in the RRC and with ERCOT to understand what I am talking about. They wield all sorts of "authority" until they are held accountable and then suddenl
  3. What Griphos says is true but one reason they had to lift it was the rates have been suppressed so low because of the incentives on the "green" energy--the energy producers can't compete because the feds subsidize the wind farms and solar--neither of which were maintained for this rare event. Usually the variable rate plans work because rates don't change that dramatically and it take as catastrophic event (chaos theory and how things bifurcate when an output is treated as input is a whole math model on what not to do in an event like this). The deregulation isn't the sole source of blame (
  4. Something seems amiss about the story. My lights stayed and my bill was $104...least amount its been for a few months. I'm not on a pre-paid plan. Either his utility company is screwing him over with accounting run amok or it's a scam.
  5. So last night was birthday dinner with Iara, Mari, and Javier, and of course the wife. Iara and Mari are our friends from Brazil and Javier is from Puerto Vallarta and is the recently new husband Iara. None of that, of course, to any of you cuz you have no idea who these people are. What it does mean is that I had a nice, quiet dinner surrounded by close friends, unbelievable food and my wife looking smoking hot as usual. A good day. A good day all around. The wife's birthday present to me--wearing the leather pants and heels. Iara and Javier with me and the Ms Sensei.
  6. Death is afraid to not give them to me.
  7. If I can find my old trackIR4 I'm happy to send it to whoever may want it. May take a day or two to dig it up
  8. As I have gotten older my tolerance for aerobatics have significantly diminished. I was never a fan of negative gees to begin with but I have learned to become an expert at puking in a bag with one hand while recovering the aircraft in the other. Something about our inner ear fluid getting thicker etc. I'm flying MS Flight sim these days on the computer and thought about VR, but the best one out there is Oculus and they now require an FB account--which my years in computers tells me is a horrible, hrrible idea.
  9. In the old RB3D days I got really good at flying a beat to shit DR1. Mainly because I sucked so bad at it I usually pranged a wing or ripped off a landing gear on takeoff. Pretty sure the only time I didn't have damage was sitting on the runway waiting to takeoff. Pretty sure I have a few thousand hours of experience flying the tri-wing aircraft with only 2.5 wings.

    Latest patch has really smoothed out performance for me. I can turn up the graphics and still keep 30-40 fps vs the 10-15 I was getting before. I was happy to see they even modelled the Icon A5 and even it's amphib capability.
  11. Thanks for the input guys. I did get replacement pots from digikey but also ordered the Hall sensors. Doing to try the hall sensor first and if they work I'll have a couple of extra CH Pots JIC.
  12. I'm watching it live but decided to go ahead and get wasted ahead of time just in case I'm able to make sense of any of it. Given 2020 to date, I'm pretty sure drunk decision making can't really fuck things up more.
  13. Got 2 ordered just in case. Playing with the new MS Flight Sim and have a Yoke for that right now but in trying the joystick found that instant 90 degree rolls weren't really a good thing despite the fun factor.
  14. Anyone know if you can replace the parts of a CH Combatstick? I have one but when going right the stick spikes something fierce. I think the pot is shot and not looking to buy a new one if I don't have too.
