It was such a pretty night, I decided to do another leg. These short flights do give me a lot opportunities to practice my landing.

I was a very naughty pilot today, landing right in front of an airliner after disregarding ATC's instructions to go around. I even got scolded for it!

This sounds more like a FF14 expansion than a mainline game. :P

I guess the new set release has a broader variety of people playing right now. I'm winning a lot more on the ladder this evening compared to when I tried to play a bit earlier this week.

Tonight's flight from Richmond to Washington-Dulles went very well! I was very intentional about controlling my rate of climb and descent and was pretty happy to see the plane behaving like all the tutorials say it should.

Trying out the glass cockpit this time around and liking it.

This is cool: I found out how to mirror the display of my glass cockpit to their own windows, so now I've got my G1000 set up where it's really easy to read.

I am way too excited over this little alarm clock i got.

@yojimbo If you like Python, Flask has always been my go-to for quick web servers. It plugs nicely into nginx+uwsgi so it's easy to get into a production-looking configuration.

I honestly can't decide if I prefer the analog 172 or the one with the G1000 glass cockpit.

Made it to Richmond today. I had to use the autopilot since I couldn't see or keep myself level through the clouds. I need to be more diligent with my post-takeoff checklist since I spent about half the flight with 10% flaps extended.

@nivex Ha! I just picked my employee number since it was five digits. It'd be neat if they had a system to give players unique reg numbers.

Starting a cross-country trip from Raleigh to New York, probably doing 30-minute legs at a time. Here we are on leg one, getting close to the Virginia border.

Looking forward to the moon or Mars getting the Flight Simulator 2020 treatment one day.

Pokemon Go in Dr. Ken..... wow that game's old.

Been trying out Feedbin over the last few days. It's an RSS reader which loads the full content from a site (like feeds used to do) and lets you read tweets too.

This is a tweet, a quote retweet and the tweeted article all in one single, clean view. Very cool! 👍👀

Finally taking some screenshots! Flew over Shanghai to visit the Oriental Pearl Tower and check off some achievements.

@andrhia I've been having good success lately with a citronella/lemongrass solution they sell at the grocery store.
