For many months I had been saying that under no circumstances would I pay more than USD $30 for a payware addon aircraft. Well, like a politician running for office (any political party) my position has ... er ... evolved ...
... As in "I never said it. But if I said it, it didn't mean what it means. And anyway it was taken out of context, even though what was quoted was a complete sentence. And in point of fact I've been saying exactly the opposite all the time." :D
... Ahem ...
Six years ago my wife was hired as a project manager by Transgenomic here in Denver, a leading maker of DNA sequencing equipment. She was fired because she insisted on prioritizing her group's work whereas management wanted everything done all at once, an impossible task. Somebody had to take the fall for the system that customers were hardly able to use, the system that was built and shipped before she arrived. She was elected, simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. And it hurt because sh

Yesterday I told Johann Dees that I would do a blog about the capabilities of AirBoss. This is that post ...
AirBoss is a human interface utility. Its original intent was to serve as a "joystick enhancer" as discussed below, though it has been extended in certain ways so as to do important things for keyboard-based shooter/slasher games, that product variant being known as GameBoss. I’m not going to speak further about GameBoss other than to mention that, among other t
Nine AM to five AM. :D It has ever been so because there is no other way to design and build complex technical software.
I don't recall whether it was the OS team at Microsoft or Apple, but it doesn't matter. They had T-shirts that read "Working 80 Hours A Week And Loving It".
Well, when I was a young system programmer I worked roughly 14x7 or roughly 100 hours per week. The degree of concentration required to have multiple people design and build a complex piece of software requires that
For the vast majority of you, Flight Simulator is a hobby. These days, because of my involvement with both the FS Flight Training joint venture with FlightSim.com, and with AirBoss, FS is now more of a business for me than a source of recreation.
Most of what I do in FS these is test flying, sometimes with students but usually on my own as I work on both shaping our approach to training, and on refining the human factors of using AirBoss.
So where do I do my test flying? Well, out of Color
Most writers take pleasure in the act of writing. A known readership is nice but at least for me the risk that somebody might actually read my stuff is reward enough.
I often write for audiences of one as various email friends will attest. While I certainly can't put myself in his league, T.S. Eliot did the same thing with poetry. In fact, "Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats", http://coral.lili.uni-bielefeld.de/Classes/Summer97/SemGS/WebLex/OldPossum/oldpossumlex/ is simply a collection of c
Well now. Blogs ...
This is a great idea because I like to think out loud (in writing :)) and blogs are terrific for this. I like this idea so much that I may even steer clear of Outer Marker :D. We shall see what we shall see.
Anyway, Like many active forum members I have both supporters and detractors. This is because I refuse to make insipid posts. You know the kind I mean. The short posts that say only things like "That's nice" or "Gee, I'll have to try that" or "Thanks for sharing". P
