  2. VATSIM 10 Year Celebration

    July 26, 2011 by Enrico Schiratti


    Dear VATSIM,

    Has it really been ten years? Hundreds of thousands of hours provided by volunteer air traffic controllers servicing pilots, adding a new dimension to the potential of PC based flight simulation? This is an amazing achievement and a great act of dedication, organization and evolution that has taken place for the benefit of everyone involved. Congratulations!

    Being one of those who dreamt of these possibilities and tried to do something like this from the very early days, I feel very close to this community and its members. It is time to celebrate, and my understanding is that there is a long list of events that will keep the level of enthusiasm high, publicize VATSIM to those who do not know about it and make those who strayed come back for more!

    Many thanks to all of you, it is hard work and fun, or fun and hard work, but what an impressive result and very well worth it! So blow out the candles and make a wish, keep going strong and we’ll all get to a hundred!

    Best Regards

     Enrico Schiratti
    Project Magenta

  5. Creating News Posts on the Project Magenta Website

    June 1, 2011 by Enrico Schiratti

    We encourage our customers to post something about their simulators on their website. Should you not have a menu bar at the top of the browser (where you just select “Add New and then Post”, all you need to do is go to this page: Add New Post

    Here you would add a title, then your text. If you want to use HTML instead of the Visual Editor, click on the HTML tab on the right.

    If you want to include an image, click on the icon on the right of “Upload/Insert“. You should be also able to embed video (e.g. from YouTube), which is easily accomplished in HTML mode.

    Once your post is ready, select a category (e.g. Sim Builder’s Blog or ProCustomer and Partner News) and then click on the “Publish” button and you’re done!

  8. New Website – Old Website

    May 20, 2011 by Enrico Schiratti

    Working with the new website reminded me of the very beginnings, well before Project Magenta. When it was all a project in an old DC9 cockpit that was being retrofitted with PCs and parts from a 737-400. How things have changed.

    The Wayback Machine is a website archive, and it comes in rather handy to illustrate how things used to be. It is probably going to be there as long as we have an internet:

    Schiratti.Com in 1999

    There are some words in there that still make us all laugh… like Windows 98.

    Well before that was this… but that’s another story.
