    Time to Retire


    Well the title says it all. I have been working on flight sim and especially ADE since around 2006. Now is the time to set aside these things. My private life with my family needs to take first place.

    I want to thank everyone over the years who have used my software and contributed to it's development. There a long list of people - too long to list here but you know who you are.

    As to the future the websites will stay up and I will still be around now and then 0n the ADE support forum at www.fsdeveloper.com

    Meanwhile thanks again and I wish you all clear skies
