  1. Don't forget about the Apple Refurb store. I almost never buy new from Apple I buy from their refurb store, usually save a good chunk. Full factory warranty and a second go-around with QC. Last two MBP's have been refurbs. Once lasted five years, this one is almost three (Mid 2015 15")

With the installation of a dual unit system comprised of the EFD1000 Pro MAX and the Evolution MFD1000 MAX, owners can eliminate vacuum system backup indicators, company officials said. “From the beginning, Aspen has always been committed to developing an avionics platform that can grow with a pilot’s needs with access to new technology as it becomes available. Our unique approach to designing and engineering new products for the general aviation community gives our current customer base (approximately 14,000 worldwide) a path to cost-effectively upgrade to the latest Aspen displays without investing in a new cockpit installation,” said John Uczekaj, Aspen president and CEO. “With the MAX series, we continue to maintain that long-standing commitment to our existing customers while pledging to provide our new customers affordable avionics and upgrade paths. Furthermore, that upgrade comes with a new two-year manufacturer’s warranty.” Key features of the MAX series: GPS-aided AHRS in the event of pitot static failure New, vibrant colors with the latest aviation glass Higher reliability and faster refresh rates with the latest generation processors Audio panel interface Chart and countdown timers available on MFD500 and MFD1000 MAX MFDs Elimination of vacuum system backup indicators with the installation of Pro 1000 MAX PFD and MFD1000 MAX MFD 350 nm zoom levels on MFD500 and MFD1000 MAX MFDs Height above ground level (AGL) on navigation and terrain maps on MFD500 and MFD1000 MAX MFDs METAR flags on navigation map on MFD500 and MFD1000 MAX MFDs Altitude intercept based on climb rate Font and window enlargement capability 6” diagonal, 400 x 760 pixel TFT Active Matrix LCD screen with bolder and brighter resolution Works with existing avionics Patented, form-fit design slides easily into existing panel cutouts Approved for over 600 aircraft types The Evolution MAX series will be available starting in the fourth quarter of 2018. Upgrades of existing displays will start at an introductory price of $2,995. Evolution E5 Aspen Avionics reports it is in the final stages of receiving FAA approval for the Evolution E5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) and expects to start deliveries in August 2018. Introduced in April 2018, the STC’d, non-TSO Evolution E5 consolidates attitude indicator plus DG/CDI into a single display with a rechargeable backup battery. It also includes Global Positioning System Steering (GPSS), air data computer, and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS) starting at $4,995. “The interest in the E5 has been overwhelming, and our order book is filling up quickly. We expect to be shipping the E5 in August,” said Mark Ferrari, Aspen vice president of sales and customer support.

    Anyone owned a Van's RV6 or RV7 before?

    What do you consider "full sized dog"? I ask as the owner of two now deceased Mastiffs.

    The only issue I have with dark mode is sometimes quoted text is not white so I have to highlight it to read it.

    You forgot Windows 2000! Funny story. When I was working at WorldCom, MS was one of our big customers for modems. They insisted that the servers run in Windows rather than Solaris. Their stuff was always going down and when they asked what we could do to improve their uptimes from top to bottom on the technical side they said switch to Solaris. That was a no-go, so they continued to eat their own dog food.

    Come on over to the East Side, for some great USPSA matches. 1st Sunday is at Brooklyn, about 2 miles from the Speedway. Second Sunday is Livingston Gun Club, about in the landing pattern for the Brighton airport, 3rd Sunday is at DSC in Rochester, and the 4th Sunday is at Raccoon Hunters right between Willow Run and Detroit Metro.

    Why Spruce Creek is Appealing to this Yooper

    Back in the late 90's when I lived in Marquette for two years for work, I remember the last of the ice in Lake Superior going away in June.
