    I am thinking that NASCAR does not feel that they have any control over him and his participation in NASCAR since the accident did not occur in a NASCAR sanctioned event. We will see what happens with the grand jury and if they decide that criminal charges are appropriate.

    It is my understanding that UIAutomationCore.dll helps with crashes that occur while in the FSX opening menu, but really does not help with crashes while flying and usually does not work at all with Windows 8. In flight CTD is most often caused by FSX running out of memory. FSX, being a 32-bit program, can use no more that 4 GB of memory. With scenery intense areas and highly detailed aircraft, FSX can quickly consume its useable memory and FSX does not release the data from your departure area, even on long flights. FSX just continues to fill memory with more data until there is insufficient memory remaining, then boom! CTD.

    Having both FS9 and FSX on my computer and plenty of hours with both, the stability nod definitely goes to FS9. I have found that FSX is more prone to crashes and OOM errors, especially when developers use 2048 x 2048 textures or worse, 4096 x 4096. FSX was not designed for textures beyond 1024, FSX is a 32-bit program and with massive texture sets, it will quickly consume its addressable memory and crash. I would not hold my breath waiting for Dovetail Games to initiate any development for FSX, I expect they are simply going to be a retail outlet for the sim and likely license and sell add ons.

    He reportedly waited for the patrol officer to pass by, then quickly climbed the fence. He was drunk, it was his birthday and he wanted to be on tv.

    Yes, the Sprint Cup race at Richmond was really tame this time. I'm sure, especially with the media recapping last year's shenanigans, that NASCAR laid down the law and everyone was on their best behavior. As for karma, that could very well be the case. By the way, I got to see the flyover before any of the fans at RIR saw it. The formation of T6's flew over my house as I was grilling some steaks in preparation for the night's event. Oh, and then there was this... http://wtvr.com/2014/09/07/nascar-fan-on-fence-at-rir/ Stupid is as stupid does.

    It might have also been a case of just using whatever paint was on hand to finish the artwork.

    I make no bones about it. I am not a fan of the super speedway, restrictor plate races. I much prefer racing on short tracks or even road courses. 1.5 miles is plenty long for circle track racing and the NASCAR circuit is full of them. I think some of the absolute best racing is seen at Darlington, Richmond, Bristol, and Martinsville. What these tracks have in common? They are all under 1.5 miles. Drivers race against each other, not racing with drafting partners. They can beat and bang fenders, go full bore down the straights and two-wide (three if you are insane) in the turns. Gas-brake-gas-brake all race long, not just put it in fourth gear and hold the pedal to the floor. Just my dos centavos. By the way, Richmond last night was a good Nationwide race, the Sprint Cup race...

    Falcon, you'll be feeling much better very soon. It is amazing what sleep can do for the body. Take care, get some rest, and let your body heal.

    Nice! I'm so glad that the movie Memphis Belle was left in its B-17F form. And yes, when I flew on the B-17G "Nine-O-Nine", even though it was a chilly, late October day, I did stick my head out through the radio room hatch and catch that breeze. Awesome stuff.

    And NASCAR is looking to do the same thing with horsepower and for the same reasons, expense and safety. The end result might be the same too, a glorified and very expensive go-kart race.

    Kyle seemed to be showing a lack of something last night. :dizzy: I see that Carl Edwards will be driving the fourth Joe Gibbs car, guess Elliot Sadler needs to either get used to being a permanent full time Nationwide Series driver or look elsewhere.

    Yes, but never was attendance anywhere near what it is for Sprint Cup Series races. Attendance for nearly all NASCAR events has been way down since the market crash of 2008.

    Looks like that one is the movie Memphis Belle. Beware, it seems the airport has laid down the rules about ground tours of her. From the Liberty Foundation website: Sept 5 Roanoke, VA Public Ground Tours Friday ONLY Sept 6-7 Roanoke, VA Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport (KROA) Landmark Aviation FBO 22 Waypoint Drive NW Roanoke, VA 24012 By order of the airport NO GROUND TOURS on 6-7th. Ground Tours are Friday ONLY B-17 Rides are Sat the 6th and Sun the 7th That is going to royally suck for those who have to work on Friday and might only have Saturday and Sunday to see her.
