    THIS IS AMAZING

    Pilot fatigue ‘one of the biggest threats to air safety’ | Project Magenta

    Here we have a commercial software vendor who

    1. takes out his forum
    2. takes out communicating with his customers
    3. claims to set up a ticket system
    4. releases few to no updates

    And out of the blue this appears as an announcement on his website.

    Makes me wonder if this is an illusion or if the "fatigue" out to read "programmer" fatigue

    5. Or when he does updates, he does not document what they are, viz. "Major Airbus Software Update"
    6. Modifies basic functions without warning (discontinuation of W2K support, NETDIR function...)

    Taking away the forum of course made sure that nobody can complain publicly any more. I really wonder how many are still using PM ?

    It seems to me that on the Airbus side, the 50 Eur AXE already has more working functions than what we have in PM.

    I really long for the good old days when we hobbyists were still appreciated by PM. But then I am getting old too.

    Hello Ian,

    yes, so true. I can see that on myself....

    If it were not for my setup (4-engined Airbus) I would probably have moved on a long time ago. But I do not want to start buiding something new, so I am more less stuck with PM.

    Should I even consider evaluating PM Airbus?

    Re: THIS IS AMAZING

    why would you ?

    You are using Jeehell for free are you not, so why would you want to change that will cost you hundreds of EUR ?

    As far as I can see from a casual look, Jeehell is actively being developped and supported, which I could not say (anymore) of PM.
