  1. Win10, the good, the bad, the perceptions.

    There has been a lot said around win10, much of it reconstituted from others experience or from other views and not a lot from first hand experience. A lot has been said around privacy and the fact that win10 collects data and meta data about users habits and who has possible access to the data collected.
    There has been some spirited and slightly heated discussions on the message boards around many subjects related to win10 some of which I have been party to and some that I have thought ...

  2. Building a Perfect FSX Rig ( pt1 )

    Over the last month there has been a number of forum posts that have ended up in rather animated discussions around what to use, how to build and settings for getting the best sim experience that you can on your soon to be, or just completed PC build.

  5. "I've had a great idea".............Oh no, (Pt1)

    It was over dinner and a few glasses of red wine that I thought it was time to broach a difficult subject with my partner of ten years. A subject that I had been wanting to discuss for a few months. I started off the conversation with the immortal words "I've had a great idea".

    The response was what I had expected, it was a sigh, and with her head in her hands she let out a muffled "Oh no"

    I've had a history of sharing my great ideas with her so ...
