Reporting on board

Arriving here thanks to a member’s (strong) endorsement. Seems like a nice, civilized place.

Some of you may know me from other forums.

Hope to meet some old friends here and make new ones.

Glad to have you! Civilized…hmm…I’d point to our Navy guys and question that assessment, but don’t let me prejudice you. :rofl:

What kinds of sims do you like?

I’m a civilian, for better or worse. Special affection for propliners (I’m a fringe member of the beta team for Manfred’s C-47) and I’m finding my way into tubes. Have flown lots of sim warbirds but only in the FS/P3D environment - the combat sims give me too much of an adrenaline rush, and I’ve got enough of that already.

I’m on the MSFS alpha, and I think that’s all I’m allowed to say… :sunglasses:

Been simming since MSFS for the Mac in '86. Lots of miles logged without ever actually going anywhere.

Have enjoyed your writings for years - glad to be under your roof.

Welcome aboard @Alan_A! I think you will like it here, and generally speaking, I think we are pretty civilized…most of the time :wink: .

Well, about being civilized… don’t go overboard with it! I’ve got my limits, too…

Thank you. I like my GPS nowadays but I have fond memories of the time before it was a thing - in the sim or anywhere else.

I earned those gray hairs, let me tell you…

To a litigator, yet!

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

EDIT: Sorry for the deleted post above - meant to reply to @Svsmokey but hit the wrong button. Still learning the ropes. It’s why I stick to low, slow aircraft…

Wha…what…WHAT??? @BeachAV8R you promised it wouldn’t!!!

There are other forums? How can that be?

So…you mean that your uniform is at the dry cleaners?

(10 Mudspike points for identifying the TV show and character where I got that.)

Got you beat by about a year or so; subLogic’s FS in 1984.

Anyway, welcome. I am one of the Navy guys who Beach slandered mentioned above. Around here, I mostly ask inane questions and derail threads…eh…it keeps me off the streets. :grimacing:

Hmm, tough one. I was going to guess Snide and Prejudice, but that’s a feature film, so I don’t think I’m going to be able to claim those points.

Can’t compete with that - I had the luxury of hi-res grayscale.

I’ve got a talent for thread-derailing, too - maybe someday we can collaborate… :sunglasses:

In that case, Welcome Home…I think you will like it here… :laughing:

OK…according to the rules, I’ll throw that question open. First to buzz in with the correct will get the points and what is behind curtain number two! :hushed: :grin:

You do! I’ve been a regular on Avsim but haven’t been around the X-Plane forums in a while (am mostly on P3D and MSFS these days). Glad to meet up with you here! I understand there are a couple of current/former Avsimmers who post here - am hoping they’ll be along in due course.
