Was on line early this morning having a look at things, and to my surprise recieved a chat request from none other than our own Watto !! I had wondered where he had got to, as I used to chat with him on the forum often. Turns out he bought the Bushcaddy factory and is now living in Montreal Canada (Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!) happily producing Bushcaddy kits.................Way to go Watto and great to hear you'r well mate..............................................Maj...024_cool.gif.7a88a3168ebd868f5549631161e2b369.gif012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

That is music to my ears Maj, I really thought that the feature would help many pilots not just with "Hey, let's catch up on Sat" types of instant conversations but the ability to get help from Aircraft Manufacturers and Agents about their aircraft or about the one you own/fly, all then and there without having to leave messages on the phones, emailing back and forth etc etc.

 

Eventually what my dream is is that just because you have say a Jabiru and it is 10pm at night and have a question that you need an answer to about the aircraft before you go flying early the next morning, the US or even French Jabiru agent is online here that you can instantly talk to and get answers.

 

What better way to provide an incredible service to both you as a site user but also to the aircraft agents...heck, the aircraft agents can even chat to each other like "Hey John, last night I was talking to Fred in your country about the X aircraft, his phone number is this and he asked me to ask you to give him a call or he will be online here soon, username is X".

 

Aircraft Pilots (.com) leads the way and is trying to provide you an aviation service like no other...and there is still more great things to come...the site has changed, management philosophies have changed, it is not just a forum...it is a resource for all pilots that also has a friendly and helpful community forum as a part of it

Glad your happy Ian, yes Watto even sent his Email via the chat, and it does seem to be quite efficient. It seems the latest version has eliminated the indication that 'someone is typing' down the bottom. I found this indication initially helpfull in keeping the responses from both parties orderly, otherwise it just seems to be a mish/mash of responses and messages.......................................Good stuff..................cheers Maj...

funny, he started chatting to me as well because he thought I was in the US.

That is because of the way you have set your PC up...you know that I know that is the case, so it doesn't help you, and all the other users on the site, when things like this are done

Yes, F-T, I have been thinking you're in the USA as well! I didn't know you could fool the system so easily.

 

You'll never admit this of course but I have a feeling you are working for ASIO just now.

 

"The special investigative powers available to ASIO officers under warrant signed by the Attorney-General include:

 

  • interception of telecommunications;
     
     
  • examination of postal and delivery articles;
     
     
  • use of clandestine surveillance and tracking devices;
     
     
  • remote access to computers, including alteration of data to conceal that access;
     
     
  • covert entry to and search of premises, including the removal or copying of any record or thing found therein; and
     
     
  • conduct of an ordinary or frisk search of a person if they are at or near a premises specified in the warrant."

I can set the gadget to be more accurate if that is what people want but it could be "too" accurate...I could use a small version of the software that the site actually users but that will upset a lot of people as it is too accurate...I will have a look at what I can do to make it a bit more accurate without giving away user's privacy

lol, no fools comedy central's website into letting me watch videos that Australians aren't supposed to see.Good to see Anthony has got Bush Caddy up and running. I hope he does quiet well at it.
