I would like to do a lot, lot more, and that is only the wiki.

Let's just say I am one of these who really suffers from two things: ;)

  1. Inability to learn new stuff at an exponential rate, not to mention retaining what I have learnt.*

  2. The unconditional limit of having at most 24 hours a day, of which some have to be sleep, or else...

On a side note it got quite a bit too late last night though. :roll:

EDIT:

Thanks! :D

*Though there are methods, like SuperMemo using "spaced repetition", which would help to some degree if I took the time. And yes I have actually tested it, the pen and paper method, though only for like two weeks.

I'm happy

...that the new scenery includes streets and train-tracks - that's very nice for VFR flights.
...that I had the chance to meet some of the developers at FS Weekend 2013.
...that my 3-screen-experiment was successful:

I am now employed (and, yep, surveying at that). :D

I am happy because I have 28 days of high school left! I may be 18 and thus legal to drink, gamble and vote, but omfg I'm to young for this sh*t.

Yesterday I did fly on FlightGear multiplayer for 6 hours non stop without a single crash/cordump/freeze or any other major issue.

Wow. 8) Too bad that is impressive. Good that things are moving in the right direction. :D

Git noob here. ;)

Code: Select all
$ git reset --hard <commit before merge>

Thought I had mangled up my local repository for good the other day. After merging two branches I only got a few of the files when checking out each of the branches. In addition I got a lot of strange permission denied errors about directories and files in the repo. :? :shock:

Finally I figured that I maybe had Ctrl-c:ed the merge (can't still remember for sure; it was late) to do it --verbose without thinking of the consequences. Finally I figured I should reset hard to the commit before the merge. Problem solved. Just like that. Phew. :mrgreen:

Afterwards I did test checking out both branches to see that they where ok, and then merge again, and then checked them both out again. So far it seems all is good. :D

Then this is just right for you: "Git For Ages 4 And Up".

Watched it myself today, was happy I did. Also, awesome Bio.

I like 2 fly but I also like to watch others fly - (callsign: obs-123, model view)
And yesterday I saw someone flying over one of the scenery models that I made.
That made me happy.

I am happy because I have finished school for the day, done homework, and completed all SIDS on Open Radar at Santos Dumont, Rio. :)

Thanks for that one! Shows very nice how helpful a visualisation can be! This maybe keeps me from recloning every now and then... :roll:

Today, a friend of mine made me very happy! He gave me a Saitek Yoke and rudder-pedals! Turned out, he had them laying around...
Plugged the USB's in and all worked just fine - out of the box! Cudos to the Linux folks and, of course, to the FG folks! :D

I am happy because today I discovered the materials dialog (ctrl-y) of the Bo-105
Now I know what I did wrong with my non-textured models.
