I think this is a neat idea, check it out (http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/notams08/four0911.htm) ...
It's just the thing for jaded flyers who don't want to join a VA or fly online. And given that I own SimPlatesX, reviewed here (http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/review/simpx.htm) by webmaster Nels Anderson, I'm always ready to fly IFR from Point A to Point B. (No, SimPlatesX is not available from the Pilot Shop.)
Now if I could only find the time for pleasure flying ...

Just a friendly observation: there's a very trivial solution to your apperant time-management problem.
(TIP: have a look at the amount of posts you made in the flightsim.com forums in the past months).
And should you be willing to learn some non-native language: In Dutch, we call this an "inkoppertje".

I'm very sorry you find my posting rate to be excessive. This is a business for me, not a hobby -- not anymore -- and I must allocate my time as I see fit, not as you see fit.
Fortunately for me I don't care what you think of me personally. However, I can't let a public attack go unanswered, not here in Comments. You can say whatever you want in Outer Marker without fear of my posting there -- that's a parallel universe. But, when you come onto my turf, which is the rest of the site, you must be prepared to finish what you start.
Now ... I have a question: Why is it that when people push me first and I then push back, I'm viewed as an attacker?
Is it just barely possible that, as we say in the USA, you can dish it out but can't take it? In English we call that "hypocrisy". (I know, I know, it's a Greek-rooted word, not Anglo-Saxon. But I can't help that. It's how English came to be a language of 500,000 words, 2.5 times that of its nearest competitor, French. I don't know where Dutch ranks on that scale. Maybe you can tell me.)
And by the way, I'm speaking as someone who knows how to pronounce "Scheveningen", even though I speak passable German, or at least used to. (And so you don't think that I simply got lucky with that, I can pronouce "s'Hertogenbosch" as well.) I also speak useful Russian, a smattering of Dutch and a few words of Norwegian. And I'm still reasonably fluent in French. (I'm not counting Spanish, which everybody in Colorado speaks at least a few words of.) But I forget. Please tell me again how many languages you speak.
These are all just some friendly observations and questions, of course.
[Darn. There I go again, responding in kind to each of an attacker's points. When will I ever learn to stop knocking bullies down every time they hit me, causing them to eventually yell for help.]
