Switching to Vista…

I just installed Windows Vista RC1 (Ultimate) on my main working machine (beside the Mac) and since there’s no space left on the drive for any legacy Windows XP I am going to stick with it as long as it takes to get the RTM onto the silver discs…

As far as I can see everything is working nice and smooth. I had a bluescreen right after the first startup but as the logfiles show it was the graphic drivers fault.

The only thing that bugs me right now is that I cannot mount any ISO files. The Daemon Tools Setup is blocked with the following message:

DIY 747 Simulator…

Somedays you wake up and think: Well…what to do with this day? Oh, I know! Let’s build a full size 747 flight simulator…

I don’t know if that’s how it all got started for Matthew Sheil, but:

“In 1998 I began the design and constuction of my 747-400 simulator. The approximate size of the simulator is 13ft wide x 11ft long and 9ft high. It will include every switch and panel in the 747-400. The Simulator has been built to accept full motion and visuals at a later date.”

If you think the inside looks impressive…look at the outside:
