I opened this website a year ago, initially using WordPress’ free domain and space. I started by porting my decade-old guide about Sharing data in the Ka-50 and writing the Step by Step guide to build a simple Arduino-based Control Box. The latter is actually the reason why I opened this site: having a place to organize guides, firmware and docs about Arduino.
I bought BS1 in 2008, on the very release day, and never left it until the arrival of Heatblur’s F-14.
This website has consequentially took at sharp turn in the direction of the Tomcat.
Five months ago I decided to upgrade the site a bit and rented a domain. “Fly-By-Wire” is a well known term in aviation and the name of my website is clearly inspired to that concept: since I Fly virtually in DCS (although I look forward to get a RW PPL) and I Wire my controllers, Fly-And-Wire seemed a nice name and a good fit!
If you follow my articles every know and then, you know I like numbers. So, let’s have a look, shall we?
Visitors wise, the numbers have increased steadily with the exception of July (twoweeker abroad and other reasons).
I like the fact that the difference between Visitors and Viewed pages is quite big: it means that most of my visitors read more than one page whereas the contrary is typical of clickbait, contents-poor sites.
The following are the Visitors’ countries and the most viewed page:
I don’t promote my site almost at all. Every couple months I post on r/hoggit, I sometimes link my articles in Hoggit’s Discord if they can be useful to new players and very rarely in the Forum of Eagle Dynamics.
Not much to say here. This is small, personal site about the hobbies I like. Therefore the focus of the site won’t change anytime soon.
DCS-wise, I definitely look forward to the F-4E, postponed due to the F-16C, and the future multicrew rotary-wing modules such as the Hind.
I may write some words about Star Citizen at some point. I’m a Veteran Backer (I joined in May 2013) and despite the fact that the project is taking centuries, it’s quite enjoyable when played with a group of friends.
The last time I recorded something about it was in Vanduul Swarm, the game version was 0.8; it was 5 years ago.
