Re: FSAddOn Bristol Freighter

Glorious rumblies :Dance: I have some scrappy video but I found some on YouTube of the same taxi run, which is better quality video, but the musical joke was not a good idea at all.

Re: How solid are SSDs???

Looks like the reason the repair fell over is a tiny scratch on disc 1, 0.25mm x 3mm. Now I'll have to buy FSX again. Mike - video rental places used to provide a polishing service to repair that sort of damage. I am quite sure there are still some around, even in darkest Victoria. I made an FS9 ba...

Re: How solid are SSDs???

Re: Can you identify this one?

Strictly speaking, Mike, I only said I could identify it, but I didn't actually do so. Joe did :agree:

Re: 5G

There has been talk that 5G could revolutionise online data transfer for simmers. It certainly will, in terms of bandwidth requirements, which will increase massively when everything has to come down from the cloud each time you want to use it, and then go up there again when you finish.
