This bears repeating again and kept as a reminder...
Too many people forget this is a HOBBY.
Most of us give our time (and in many cases money) freely. We don't expect much in return except a respectful attitude. Too often this is forgotten. So just remember that we aren't doing this as a job, we are giving our time for free before you make that post/comment/email.
Good Morning! what we all must understand is that your work is done in the best possible way and for the love of aviation and simulation and, free of charge, for us to help fly better!!! There is no delay that can get in the way of this excellent work by everyone at HJG. I just have to thank you and ask you not to give up on us helping! Antonio(Brazil)

Antonio, I like most people in FS love freeware as it can become an expensive hobby! I enjoy the work freeware hobby people do for the love of FS and we can often get requests for work and sometimes that can lead to impatience if what you request does not arrive quickly. I myself decided many years ago that as time is hard to find and to keep my enthusiasm I paint what appeals to me more and more these days, I am not doing it for a wage so its just for fun and enjoyment. I hope to carry on as long as possible and like many others involved in FS we are really grateful for posts like yours that show appreciation for our efforts, thank you.

My attitude to FS is: After stopping flying for real, it's my aeronautical heaven. One can fly airplanes and places I never dreamed off. One finds wonderful works of simulation and if one dislikes something of it, one can change that for one's own pleasure. Many thanks for your efforts!

Catching up at this late stage since time's simply not been on my side lately
From an HJG perspective I can think of a couple of excerpts from a particular, and historic, 1940's speech which (albeit slightly edited by me below and for the sake of convenience) possibly sums things up quite reasonably ....
"Undaunted by odds .... unwearied by their constant challenge/s" .... we/HJG never really seek "THANKS", but, it "IS" nice to occasionally read it being expressed here because it's something of "a rarity" these days. Although acknowledgement is never really sought or expected by us, it "IS", when expressed, appreciated "by those here whom sacrifice considerable personal time, and effort, in order to try'n freely give our community something decent to enjoy". Therefore, and in summary, the following is possibly somewhat appropriate .... "Never in the field of FS was so much owed by so many to so few".
Déjà vu or not .... maybe CHURCHILL had HJG in mind
In 2004 I stepped into FS. In 2010 I started simming proper, learning about procedures, VATSIM, stuff like that. The same year I discovered HJG packages available for download on my first virtual airline "Air France Virtual Airlines". I first visited the HJG website then and saw the wares and fell in love with historic planes. Since then I've used a variety of payware and freeware. I went off FS for a while in between. HJG products are the only software I've been using continually all through out these time. The level of detail into HJG products is amazing. The realistic procedures, the plethora of repaints, the engine variants and panel variants (no one panel fits all). The level of customization which can be done is not available elsehwere. Sure, HJG products have their own imperfections. But who/ what is perfect? Whoever wants to complain should consider the amount of money HJG is earning through all these products: ZERO. THANK YOU HJG for all the hard work for getting us all this.
