A Cold And Dark December

In this episode Nicolas tries to move forward based on the idea of camaraderie and an admittedly poor understanding of a wellness and recovery action plan. Topics covered include: Nicolas admitting the wrongness of their election prediction, managing digital ecosystem use, skipping Christmas, and “pushing Biden left” by calling out neoliberal humbug.

Camaraderie

In this episode Nicolas does their best to come up with a coping and survival mechanism for the times ahead. They conclude that the best approach is to develop a tight knit group of people that one can support and get support from. They also talk about their vote, the problematic mechanics of representation and the potential of the sociocratic mechanic. Finally, they mention their new flight sim service offers.

Limits Of Consumer Flight Sims

I’ve recently been using X Plane 11 to try and simulate realistic training scenarios for The A350 in hopes that it might be a useful real world tool for pilots. After extensive testing, though, I’ve found that consumer flight simulators do not adequately achieve the level of sophistication needed.

I must sincerely apologize to those that were hoping to find practical uses for this technology. In the end Microsoft Flight Simulator and X Plane are games designed for entertainment. Lockheed Martin’s Prepare 3D is available on the industry level but as a person that uses these products at a consumer level I don’t have access to that platform.

For those that hope to use consumer flight simulators for entertainment proposes I can still help with simulator setup.

If you have questions please email me.

Once again I offer my sincerest apologies.
