Make sure you’re logged in to FlightAware, then go to your stats page. On your site you’ll see a cogwheel at the end of the orange bar for your site. Click that and in there you can change your nearest airport.

That’s not a cogwheel, only Amish people know what that is :rofl:

For the rest of us, that drive cars, it’s a gear!

Gears in the old (mechanical) wrist watch with back cover removed

The Emoji don’t lie :rofl: . There is only an emoji called “gears” (that I have linked) but none called cogwheel.

No matter how people may try to put their spin on it, we are cognizant that some are long in the tooth and some ideas may never mesh, creating backlash.

Cogwheel is not a familiar word in North America, but it is a familiar word in UK.

In North America “gear” is the exclusively used and understood word.

skip, this is well written, and overtly subtle (if such a thing can be…)

Don’t read too much into what I write, because I may not have thought all that much about it.

Wheely well written.
