Quoting Carmen from the end of the last thread:

Believe it or not, after all these years... Kai threatened to come visit several times, but the one time we actually planned it properly, the flight was cancelled.

Threatened?!    Although I wish I would have made it down there  



911, where is your emergency?

They cut off threads around 250 in order to keep servers from being flooded.

Whatever happened to UTAFlyinghigh? Some of his threads were quite humorous, although I think he wound a few people up.

nothing to do with the server. Just 250+ posts take longer to load, especially with pictures.

I think he discovered the potential for conflict between his profession and Anet and backed away, he along with Baroque and the good Captain Slamclick were what maintained my interest in the non photo forums.. and the photo forum, well I tried along with others to keep it alive but failed.



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

I miss Concordeboy, Udo and Keesje. I offered to buy Keesje a beer if he came to Seattle to watch the delivery flight of the 1st LH 748i since he often insisted it would never happen, but he didn't take me up on my offer  

As someone who's been here a long time and was a lurker for quite a while before that, what I see as having happened is that too many people who had little to no knowledge of what actually takes place in the field of commercial aviation would argue with people who actually worked for the airline, manufacturer, airport (take your pick) of the topic in question. I know a couple former members who were intimately involved in the flight test programs of a couple new models at their respective companies, actually rode on test flights and/or had a hand in the actual design of the airplane. They finally gave up because some 18 year old armchair experts would tell them they didn't know what they were talking about or doubted their info.

Indeed. That seems to be a common theme around here and I've had it happen to me first hand a few times. Unlike others though, my patience wears thin quick and a lot of my ensuing posts find their way to the dumpster.

Oh well

Either that or the lack of JGPH1A... Who knew the - granted, mendacious - words 'young and beautiful and thin and gorgeous' repeated over and over again could sustain a thread for literally days?
