  1. Recently had the same diagnosis, Iain. My cardiologist has me on restricted liquids - not more than 1.5 litres per day, plus diuretic in addition to other medication. Can't even have more than 1 beer - Bugger !
  2. Still here - like Berger Paints, keep on keeping on.
  3. Hi All, Thanks for the encouragement - I have not built a new computer since 2013 and how things have changed ! My old system was based on an ITX motherboard in a Bitfenix Prodigy case, so I decided to give my old hands ( & Brain ) a bit more room to work in. However, I did like the horizontal m/board and so I went for a Thermaltake Core V21 case this time. The rest of my specs are :- Motherboard MSI B450 Mortar Max CPU AMD Ryzen 5 1600AF RAM 16Gb G Skill Flare-X 3200 Cooling Noctua NH-U12S * Graphics MSI NVidia GTX 1060 6Gb * Storage Samsung 870 EVO Plus 500Gb NvMe Samsung 860 QVO 2 Tb SSD * Samsung 850 EVO 1 Tb SSD W/Digital Velociraptor 1 Tb HDD (10,000 rpm) * NB: Items with * were from my old setup and I replaced the stock front fan on the V21 case with a Noctua NF-A20 ( 200mm PWM Fan for improved air flow capacity ). I know that I am taking a chance on the CPU at AUD185, but if it does not perform with X-Plane I have the opportunity to upgrade to a 3600. Also, I was on a limited budget from my Supervisor Cheers, Bill.
  4. Hi everyone, My old computer gave up the ghost in mid -March ( Covid -19 ???) so after a suitable time for grieving, and working out the finances, I now have a new rig set up and apparently working OK. All I have to do now is to set up my Sims and take to the skies again. Great to be back on the Forum. Cheers to all. Bill
  5. 79 and 6/12 Just checking your eyesight ! Cheers, Bill.
  6. Hi Guys, I just installed a Samsung 2 Tb SSD. A really " nice piece of kit " Bill.
  7. Hi Heinz Could you please show the steps you took to uninstall ORBX Central and to re-install FTX Central 3. Many thanks. Bill
  8. Perhaps it is all due to perspective and Trigonometree Sorry guys - could not resist ! Bill.
  9. After much fun and frustration, I made the decision to go back to Basics and learn to fly the Cessna 152 properly. So I set myself up with Carenado's C152 and ,when I have truly mastered the rudiments, I will graduate to A2A's C 172. Bill.
  10. Turn 78 on the15th March. - thought I had better log in while I still can ! Really appreciate the cameraderi and the great sense of humour of senior colleagues. Bill
