Recently we've found that Microsoft has pulled support of their sims, which means we soon won't have a place to meet & fly online.
I bring this to your attention thinking possibly you could bring this to the attention of RCG's vendors, possibly the more folks in the RCG family that know of the situation the better a chance for a fix!
Personally, If I could afford it I would set something up for members of RCG only to fly in. (A virtual RCG flying site?)
Just thinking......
Anyway, drop in & say howdy.

And the search continues.......
Okay, FOUND A FIX!!!

I shouldn't or won't say much , but an IT buddy of mime looked at the problem and got out his little box of special CD's and DVD's aka as the "Magic Gang", It's special software he uses to fix problems and eliminate unneeded MS programs

It looks at the system . all the way to the servers and the new guys who bought out Gamespy.

He said Hmmmmmmm, their software sucks!, but what's good is I can fool it so easily, this fix will be easy!
Their setup is only supposed to support mobile hardware, but the programming is total trash! Fooling it to think you're a mobile phone user will be easy!
He pulled up FSX on my machine, then asked me what username and password do you want to use?
I don't know, nothing has worked . He just grinned and said "It will now!!
So I used my latest username , gave him a password, and he let the magic CD run, and it put me back online!

But before that, he said you have to say the "majic words"

"Screw Microsoft!!!!":


So now I can fly with you Mike!

Whoops, yeah I have to find a way to get FG to save screenshots as resampled JPEG's, since it uses .png's. Having a blast with FlightGear here lately..

You can send them thru a paint program for editing (don't have to edit tho'), and save them in your choice of formats.
Had a session in the Keys, WJ dropped in but was struck speechless by my awsomeness in an airplane!

WJ,
It's funny, we were both taking each others pics at nearly the same time!
We started over a scenery add-on "carrib-east" I think.
In other news today.......
We dropped a pine branch in our front yard today & found a birdnest....
No big deal I know, but look at it & think about how something with no hands & only a beak & toes can make something so neat!
Mike.
