    Hello from PC Pilot

    Hello everybody,

    I've been a member for some time now, but have not yet introduced myself.
    My name is Joe Lavery and I'm a freelance writer for PC Pilot magazine in the UK.
    If you've read the mag you'll have seen my series on cockpit building, which is now reaching the MIP stage.
    The information I've gleaned from the forum has been invaluable. Particularly now that I'm getting to grips with the PM software and the Phidgets interface. So thank you one and all.

    I'm sure there will be many questions before I'm finished with this project, so expect me to lean on some of you more experienced members..

    Finally, I have to say that Ian Sissons has been an enormous help over the past year, I only hope I can repay the compliment some time in the future.

    Kind regards to you all.

    Welcome to MC Joe. Sorry I don't read many periodicals, but I'm sure it's a great magazine.

    Feel free to ask about anything you need to know. Someone here will know something.

    I think everyone here knows something about something.

    Welcome Joe,

    Welcome to MC.org.

    You picked the right magazine! I was writing articles for Computer Pilot and had to threaten legal action to recover my article payments. So ended my relationship and subscription with CP magazine who told me they had "cash flow problems". I'm yet to see a PC pilot mag but will do so soon.

    Regards,

    Gwyn

    Gwyn, I can't believe you haven't received your payment for those wonderful articles you wrote in CP magazine. They claim they have over 20,000 subscriptions, somebody is getting paid!!!!

    In protest and support to my friend, I will end my subscribtion with CP Magazine, which I have two more issues left to go. That's a real shame Gwyn

    They must have tons of subscriptions since most of the pages of that magazine contain just commercial ads and advertisers would not pay for a minute audience. Personnally, I find there is very little useful content for flight deck builders.

    Instead of a magazine for sim pilots, one is needed for sim builders.

    One with more than a back page blurb about the hobby.

    True, but these types of articles are few & far between. This magazine is heavily slanted towards PC simmers. Nothing wrong with that, but as Michael said "Instead of a magazine for sim pilots, one is needed for sim builders."
