This is worse than whatsup! Everytime somebody sends me a whatsup, he sends me an email to alert me to the fact that he sent me a whatsup.

Isn't the whole idea of "Private Messages" (PM) that they get delivered to your registered email address, so you get notified about a new PM that has arrived even if you are not glued to the Avcom website screen.

If you send me a PM, you don't need to advertise this fact on Avcom, as I would have read your PM long before returning to the Forum.

Why does what I do, to help someone else, bother you?

In the old days there was a window that popped up whenever you had a pm, now there is just a little envelope and I even miss that sometimes.

People will give you a choice to either pm or e-mail them via Avcom and some only have one option while others don't give you any option. Some people chose not to get any e-mails from Avcom.

The mind boggles! :roll:

You get sent an email telling you there's a pm. Hard to miss.
Assumes you check email though.
The bright orange notification and pm icon that lights up is probably also a clue 8-[
I always put it down to the typical age group that frequents avcom and the associated level of tech-saviness ;)

You are 100% correct.......................my son! :P

I don't have my e-mails come to my phone or to my laptop at home, they go to my office pc so if you send me one today, I will only see the e-mail on Monday.

And you landed safely? - I admire your levels of concentration :lol:

BTW - I didn't know a heli had a stick plus 2 collectives - :wink: :lol:
There are three simple rules for making a perfect landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
I was flying in uniform when you were still in liquid form :wink:

More likely "striking a pose". These girls have it imprinted on them to go into "pose mode" whenever a lens is pointing their way...

By the way... when I was still in school, I built every possible 1:72 up to 1:38 scale model of various fixed wing aircraft.

I only built two helicopter models, because according to me at the time they were the only two that mattered - a Hughes 500 and a Gazelle. To this day the Gazelle is to me very close to being the perfect helicopter....

...affirm, I am adversely affected by pretentious people - plastic people :evil: :evil: though my remark, maybe unjust towards her, but ja.... :!: :!:

...seriously though, I like your choices in the MD 500 and would probably go for the Bell Jet Ranger or the BO 105 in the place of the Gazelle, not that it is not a competitor :D

I really had to concentrate! I noticed the two collectives as I was about to take off, when I pulled the one, nothing happened! :lol:

Well, be honest here: when you pulled "the one", the only that changed was the expression on your face. So to speak. :twisted:
