  2. Installing The SDKs From The FSX Gold Disks

    I recently had the pleasure of reinstalling the FSX SDKs from my FSX Gold disks on Windows 7, and unfortunately ran into some problems while doing so. I found a workaround and eventually got the job done, so I thought I'd post my solution here in the event that others may be encountering the same problems I did.

  5. Jim's blog? Sure, why not...

    It's a beatiful Sunday morning here in N. Idaho, bluebird sky, and a balmy 15 F at 8:15 AM. Life is good this morning as I swill my first cup of cowboy coffee, I've got a rip-roaring fire going in the woodstove, a whole day to kill in front of the computer, the nearest human being is at least 1/4 mile away, AND I have some new payware to play with. Yes, I am rubbing all of your honey-doing noses in it .

    Last week I crawled out from under my rock and purchased the Carenado U206 ...
