  1. Here's another one. She's 20 now but I don't know how old she was when this video was made.
  2. Right on John. As I said in another post, this is (IMNSHO) probably one of the most useless add-ons ever conceived. Does anybody ever fly the airplane anymore? Or is all we're supposed to do these days is look at the eye-candy. End of rant.....
  3. Thanks guys. But I am a little disappointed. I really hoped this would be a chance for me to recover some of the money I lost to the Bank of Nigeria in Lagos a couple of years ago. I guess I'll just have to wait for a better deal to come along.
  4. if I gave this guy my bank account information? (I found this in today's e-mail): "My name is Mr,William Kofi manager International Commercial Bank Limited. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us, It is my duty to a financial report to our head office at the end of each annual general meeting.On the course of Last general meeting which just ended lest two days,I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made an excess profit of One million Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars [USA$1.500,00] which my head office are not Aware of and will never be Aware. I have since placed this funds on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without any beneficiary.As manager of the bank, I can not be directly connected to the funds,That is why I'm contacting you for us to work together you can assist me and receive this money into your bank account for us to share. I have generally agreed on this sharing ration of good percentage % of the total sum for your assistance upon the receipt of the funds in your account. Note Is bank to bank transfer, all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this funds who made the deposit with Spintex branch.Our bank head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account. Such transfer from our head office takes not more than 72hrs and the kind of transfers is just like someone who banks in a particular bank and at a point in time wishes to close his or her account and transfer the funds to a different bank. I assure you we can achieve it successfully if you can follow my instruction and direction, hence I am here to make sure that everything works out." Best Regard Mr,William Kofi
  5. It looks like your paint job came out better that mine Nick. When I decided to sell the old '52 I thought some fresh paint would get a higher price and make for a quicker sale. Back then there was a chain of paint shops owned by a guy name Earl Scheib. One of the crazy things he did (there were several of them) that made him a legend in California in the 1960's was his TV ad which proclaimed "...I'll paint any car any color for $99". So...I dropped my car off on my way to work one Wednesday morning and went back to pick it up in the afternoon. I told them to paint it white. And they did. The whole car. Including the tires, bumpers, and windows. When I expressed a bit of shock they told me that if I wanted the car to masked-off so as to only paint the body parts I should have told them as it costs extra to cover up the "other stuff". I got them to scrape the paint off the windows (sort of) so I could drive it home and then spent a week in my spare time cleaning up the mess. Lesson learned.
  6. Welcome to the forum(s). As you can see, we're not the only ones who think there is a problem. Hopefully a fix will be found. - Doug
  7. I wish I had a picture. When we were first married both my wife and I worked. On the opposite sides of town. It soon became obvious that a second car was going to be needed. We didn't have much money so I went looking for something I could get on the cheap. And I found it the first day. A 1952 split-window Volkswagen Beetle. What a car. No gas gauge, 25 H.P., headlights that let you see at least 50 feet down the road, and a gearbox that you could, with a little practice, shift without the clutch. I loved that car. It served me well for a little over three years before I traded it in for a brand-spanking new 1967 Bug. And as I look back now, I liked the old one better.

  9. Unless there is a another reason to do so, there is no real advantage to de-partitioning the drives. Windows can handle up to 26 physical drives. I have 4 optical and 19 data drives (5 internal and 14 external) on this system and Windows handles it fine 99.5% of the time. If I have everything active at the same time Windows will occasionally mess up a drive letter or two on a reboot but that's easily fixed with Disk Management...no big deal. I usually run with as few of the external drives active as I can but that's just for my convenience...Windows doesn't care one way or the other. I's rather have several small drives rather than just a couple of big ones because, as you say, it solves some of the "clutter" problems.
  10. It's also a good idea not to work on it when you're old.
  11. Oh yeah, I remember now. KLAX is one of those places where the big jets land. I should have known that wasn't KLAX because I didn't see any of them there and there is no smog obscuring the mountains. Silly me.
  12. I just reinstalled FSX and it won't run here either. CTD's on full screen and I have to reboot to get the box running again. When I get a chance I'll set up the Win10/7 dual boot again and go from there.
