Hi guys!

I was just on approach to KCVG after a 10 hour flight, and bang, my machine locked up... argggggg!

I remember someone mentioning a program that saves the flight every so often, can anyone recommend any?

You need the Autosave DLL (filename: autosave.zip). You can get it from AvSim or FlightSim.

I would buy a new Mac (already have a G4), but I dont have a huge amount of free cash at the moment!  Sad

Thanks David  Smile will give it a try.

I feel for you mate.

Usually Windows gives me the Blue Screen of Death at the worst possible moment. LHR, Vatsim and Landing on Final comes to mind.....



An Engineer made a bet that a 747 Gear wouldn't retract in a Hangar. He lost the bet.

Do a ghostfile after you reinstall everything in case you need to reinstall it again. Many programs to chose from, check out Norton Ghost 9 for instance. Can be a real life and timesaver.
