All the things I did not write about

It has been some time. Good day to you all.

I have purchased a Line6 LD150 bass guitar amp. I can not use it to its full potential at home. On a setting of 3.5 I rattle the windows as well as the nearest brick wall, and thus I have never gone louder. I am very happy. Line6 makes the coolest gear.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X has been released. Since the shelf life is typically three years, versus most other games a few months at most, the software has to be designed for next-generation hardware. Meaning that current hardware battle to maintain good framerates. And old hardware (like what I have at home) get very bad framerates if you want too much detail out of the sim. But soaring simulation is magnificent, and since it happens away from busy commercial airports, I get mid-teen framerates. Very good. But if you really want good framerates, consider purchasing this Alienware machine.

I also purchased Need for Speed Underground 2 on eBay for AUD20 delivered, and am having a lot of fun with that.

I have been travelling a lot recently, and when I am home, my family, music, and flying comes before blogging.

Strangely enough, as I write this I am sitting in a hotel room, with lots of spare time on my hands for the evening. Ironic, is it not?

Hey Paul...just dropped in to say hi! Your wife is flourishing & looking ever so beautiful throughout her pregnancy! And I haven't seen you lately to comment on your 'lack of moustache'.
