    Hi Hubbabubba, I highly recommend you UNINSTALL Google Chrome. My Daughter installed Chrome on her Windows 7 laptop a few months ago. A couple months ago, she was complaining that her computer was too slow. Considering it has a faster processor and twice the memory of mine, I was wondering what she was running. I went in and removed what I believe to be a bunch of viruses and adware and terminated about 20 Chrome daemon processes. Everything was fine for a day or so. Next time she rebooted, all the Chrome daemons got restarted even though she did not actually run the Chrome browser. Seems like this thing spawns new processes regardless of whether or not you run it. She accidentally reinstalled it last week while installing other software, so we will have to go back and...

    Just to let you know... Win7 machine is running; I'm typing on it right now:jump:! The first phase was to get it updated. Not as "epic" as the XP old tower, but still an exercise in patience. Updating is more aggressive though; other concurrent downloads do suffer.:dizzy: Second phase was to get "the essentials"; a good browser and a good free anti-virus. Explorer 8 was already in place, but I got Firefox 28.0 and, while installing Avast, Google Chrome came along. For the moment, Firefox is my "main browser" while Chrome and Explorer are acting as "secondary". Avast is still "under evaluation"; so far, so good.

    Thanks gaucho French is my native language and I speak and write it way better than the average francophone, IMHO... As for English, I'm pretty fluent in it but, just to be on the safe side, I have English-speaking friends proof-read important documents. The memorial was such a case. As for German and Spanish, I had to rely on third-parties. I do use Google translate on occasion, but in this case, I relied entirely on good friends. It was their native language but, as for their mastery of their own grammar... If you have a better translation to offer, do so, I don't mind. Whenever a new update is made, I would make the correction.

    Hello Janet, If you don't have much experience with aeroplanes, I strongly suggest you buy a plastic model of the Do 335 and also look at as many photographs of the actual aircraft as possible. A set of 3 view dimensional drawings is very useful but a lot of shapes are not captured in the 3 views. If you are still looking for good drawings, let me know and I will see if I have any good sources. - Ivan.

    Ivan replied to a thread Warhawk in CFS1 General Discussion
    Over the last week or so, I decided to finally revisit the P-40 Long Tail. I started with a dimensional confirmation of the original Short Tail version of the P-40E and found that apparently I had misread Wylam's Drawing. The dimensions actually don't have a 4 inch discrepancy if it is interpreted correctly. I also found that my P-40E is a bit off in places but generally close enough to the drawing not to matter much (about 3/4 inch off at the worst and generally under 1/4 inch off or dead on). I also found that my copying of the panel lines around the Rudder and Fin area was quite poor. The Long Tail configuration that I am building as a model looks like either a late P-40K or P-40M. The E&M manual lists 33 ft 3.7 in, so that would make it 20.7 inches longer. In looking over a...

    Hello Ivan:wavey: I'm not out of the wood yet, but getting there. I've not installed AF99 and was not planning on doing it. I was thinking of using this PC as a guinea pig for creations coming out of the Win 7. FS95 is fully installed, booster scenery included. No need for the CD. FS98 is also fully installed and patched. And, of course, CFS1. I have also installed A-10 Cuba, but I'm still searching for the patch. They're all working well. If I re-install AF99 (and I probably will) it will be on the Win 7 machine. If I have compatibility issues, I may then try to install on the XP machine.

    Thanks Allen, Smilo, et al. https://www.abacuspub.com/fsd/catalog/s372.htm Dunno why mine is showing as https, but it still works. FWIW, I have worked out a MUCH better fdectrl file than the one that comes with the download. If you find the tool useful, I can send a copy to you. BTW, Even if you don't want the tool, scroll down the page. There is a lot of useful information there. I don't think all of it is accurate or optimal, but it does show how some very smart people were thinking.

    Sorry, No Dice, but they are actually quite different programs. Each has its strengths. I started with FDE, and it allows your own type definitions, so I like it better. AirED allows you to copy and delete records. I actually use both programs when I need their particular features. To find it, just search for "abacus FDE" in your browser. The site is abacus pub.com. It came up for me as the first two hits. I would paste the link, but I don't know how to do this on an iPad. My son is playing a game on my computer right now. - Ivan.
