  1. How about we skip straight to 2665?
  2. Update: We went on the second date and there wasn't any of that "clicking." It felt weird, I don't think it's gonna go anywhere with her.
  3. Just to throw a picture comparison out there so people can see the difference, it's difficult to see anything quantifiable otherwise:
  4. I read a book about this kind of strategy of joining a "disruptive" market as soon as possible and leaving your customers behind in order to stay alive. The book is called The Innovator's Dilemma if anyone wants to give it a read, but the jist of it is that this disruptive technology's 'performance' (the disruptive technology in this case is P3D v4 with its 64 bit engine, making the 'performance parameter' compatibility with addons on the market) is so low that the bigger more established companies feel it to be an unnecessary risk to jump ship on their established market (FSX with its multiple addons), but a few years down the road the disruptive technologies eventually overtake the established technologies and bigger companies won't be able to adapt in time to their customers abandoning them for this new technology. The narrative makes sense with physical products, but with software it seems like a non-issue if said "established company" (in this case Aerosoft) were to conduct business in both markets, since that seems like an intuitively safer strategy (instead of gunning it with one market) with very little added cost to the customer. Then again, I'm just a lowly consumer that is trying to get a job as a manufacturing engineer, what would I know?
  5. Now we gotta get a few thousand simmers to repeat the same thing. Can we get an online submission form going to speed the process up?
  6. I thought that was just for the crying kids in the back
  7. One more joke to keep things going in here:
  8. Funny you say that, nuclear physics is much simpler!
  9. I had a date last Friday, actually. It went pretty well, she wants a second date, her choice of place this time.
  10. Now I'm not sure if this is an actual bug, since I don't fly in Europe, but I do know that Appendix 4 in the RAD has about 114 directs listed in Italy that are valid between FL315 and FL335, even though FRA starts at FL335 and above. You said your flightplan was set for FL320, right?
  11. Italy implemented a free route airspace above a certain altitude. This means that any route between two points is acceptable as long as it remains within the FIR and doesn't cross any restricted airspace. Operators will typically use convenient direct-routing that offers them faster time with less operational headache. See the Eurocontrol Route Availability Document if you want to verify what I just said, but I had a look through that multiple times myself and it's the most convoluted publication you will ever come across, so how far down the rabbit hole you want to go is really the furthest you should delve into this.
  12. So what you're saying is that a screen is so horrible at representing what the human eye sees that we perceive a 'photorealistic' image to be horrendously ugly and unrealistic?
  13. I have a couple of jokes to pass the time: Q: What does a pilot say halfway through a first date? A: "Enough about flying, let's talk about me" Q: How do you find out if someone is a pilot? A: Don't worry, they'll tell you Q: What's the difference between a pilot and god? A: God doesn't think he's a pilot
  14. A good rule of thumb is this: if you have to ask, it probably won't be ready for a long while.
  15. I felt a great disturbance in the votes, as if millions of trolls suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something great has happened...
