Re: Southport Airshow 2014

mikeysoft an alternative might be to take your dad to Blackpool instead. The lancs, spitfire and hurricane are due in at 15:05 which suggests they are going to go straight over the sea from Southport. If you get there at least half an hour earlier the sparrows should land at 14:27 after their displ...

Re: Automatic sign in

I'm also having the same issue with UKAR, could be be an issue with a new version of phpBB I wonder? Latest beta of 3.1 came out a couple of weeks ago. I don't use betas on my bulletin boards but haven't noticed an issue being raised about persistent logins. For security I'd recommend people don't ...

Re: Script running message

The server that FC lives on is probably just under heavier load than normal rather than being anything specific to FC.

Re: Some HDR'd photos, comments?

Subtle use of HDR can make an outstanding image. I don't recall seeing any photos that actually look better using this pseudo-HDR (it isn't HDR as there isn't the dynamic range in a single shot). That's not to say you shouldn't experiment with your photos - though in the examples you've chosen I'd s...

The phantom is currently at Bentwaters with Everett Aviation and from there to an overseas customer.

Re: Too many smiles!!

Limiting? 5 smilies is too many for a single post, with quotes or not.
Why do people want to put strings of smilies in their posts. Why quote others?

Re: Limit unregistered Guests !

Other thoughts about the loading on FC from someone who knows very little about php/mySQL. What difference does it make to the loading when users are logged into half a dozen threads at the same time? As I swap threads it is common to see quite a lot of nicknames logged into multiple threads for lon...

Re: Limit unregistered Guests !

I have had no problems accessing FC between midnight and 02:00 (including last night). Is the problem FC or is it the routing from certain people's ISP to the server?

Re: Framing advice

If the photo you show as an example is typical then you definitely need to practice your panning technique - cars on a corner or running animals are good for practicing when no aircraft are available. Check the way you are standing - legs apart, one one slightly in front of the other so you body can...

Re: Question ?

In simple terms, yes

To balance that...how important are the shots to you? Ones you can't get any other way?....then go for it. A convenience but you'd be able to get the shots another time without the fence/bus/head etc in the way?...then wait.
