Real World Weather Crashes FS9
I've been using real world weather with 15 min updates for over a year now with no problems what so ever. My system was down for hardware and lack of free time for the last couple of months and I just got it working again.
Now I have this problem of real-world weather updates (both one-time and 15min) crashing my system. I get the first dialog of downloading the Jeppeson weather and then the second dialog ?Loading weather? crashes FS. If I choose custom WX every thing is fine. If I choose a WX theme everything is fine.
Before I pony up some cash for ActiveSky I'd like to try to fix the problem!
I have not made any system changes except updateing my versions of Project Magenta.

When I tried using FS9 real weather updates, FS9 almost always froze in the middle of loading the weather. Sometimes I had to kill FS9 several times before it would finally come up. Once it came up though, it worked OK.
Anyway, I switched to ActiveSky and that is working flawlessly for me. It really impresse med once when I wanted to fly out of Toronto (I live about 60 km NE of the airport). I started FS9 and I was surprised by the thunder & lightning at the Toronto airport (all was calm where I was). 10 minutes later, the sky opened up and all **** broke loose. So, ActiveSky does work really well in my opinion

Jeppesen's server is down it has been reported.
Supposed to be back up in 24hr or so. I don't know when it went down so I don't know when the 24 hours are up.
This was reported on several other sim sites.Boeing Skunk Works
Remember...140, 250, and REALLY FAST!
We don't need no stinkin' ETOPS!

Yeah, everyone on the net on every forum is talking about this. Just sit back and wait. It has happened before ... it will happen again.
