    If that was Boston, those taxiways would be packed with airplanes!

      It was while the Northeaster was going through. I now shows real traffic in real time and there were a few arrivals that appeared to be about 20 miles in trail. As you can see there was nothing showing. I was listening to KBOS tower on Live ATC and it was quite most of the time.

        Bill--I'm new to this thread and have a few questions.

        1. What is the brand of your simulator software?
        2. How much RAM and how much video card memory do you need to get good results.
        3. What computer are you using.

        Looks like it provides a lot of fun.

        Thanks
        regards, Rod

          Chuckle, concur - and my most vivid memory of Baaahstun is "don't hit that boat in the harbor's mast when you're landing north".

              One thing is I'm coming out of the South Cargo ramp and arrivals and departures are RWY33L.

                I think I've flown actual airplanes with a value that is less than the value of Bill's sim setup!

                  My Son just made on petty close to the above specs. Much cheaper that a way. Of course, the i9 processor is out now. The chip cooling tower on his is the largest I've ever seen on a home computer. He says they're much easier to build yourself now than when he did his first. No need to set little jumpers, etc. I'm thinkin about it.

                    Building those is fun and not as hard as it looks. There's a section on Reddit called /r/buildapc that offers lots of advice.

                      Unh-huh, never went over there but I sure do recall flying past some boats in the harbor below and off to my left on on final.

                          No longer build. Has not been build since the 70s.

                          You ASSEMBLE them. Pretty easy. Big thing is installing all the software/drivers.

                          And it depends on what you need. It used to be cheaper to build a better machine that you could buy, enough to make it worthwhile. But lately, for most users, it is cheaper to buy a ready to go. I have "built" almost every computer I have owned.

                          Bought two over the years for our company. One for a remote site, did not need that much. And the second was early Pentium 166, and it was cheaper and faster to get. But the last two in the house have been bought. Just cheaper for enough of a computer for what I needed.

                          I will probably "build" a new high end computer for myself, not that I need it, but I just like doing it.

                            My Son assembled his for about 1/2 of retail from what we can tell. Well, maybe 60%.

                              For a high end machine, yes. For a basic machine, like most people only need, I am not sure you can do that.
