So, joined Steam and downloaded Microsoft Flight Simulator X ($4.99 plus tax and 10 hours to download) because it read like it was going to be â€œbetter.â€ Didnâ€™t seem any better than the boxed version I already have. Was hoping that the graphics wouldnâ€™t switch over to Windows Basic mode. Not only did it switch, but it blanked the other two monitors so I couldnâ€™t even watch my Godzilla Marathon! But it does run better with this new video card I got when you run it in a window and not full screen. Maybe thereâ€™s something Iâ€™m missingâ€¦
I was ready to just delete it and â€œun-joinâ€ Steam, but then found out I can still install and use my various add-on thingies and aircraft. So, even though itâ€™s always connecting and Iâ€™ll never (probably) use the multi-player part, I think Iâ€™ll keep it. At least, for awhile. Made my first intentional water landing! Cool!
Not much else going on. SWMBO has an eye appointment after the Genealogy Library so Iâ€™m kinda sorta just waiting around. Made a dump run. Renter wanted to go along but got caught up on Bainbridge Island so I took his can for him. No prob!
My Schweetie got home about 1700 and we went out for dinner at the Teriyaki Chicken place we like in Gig Harbor. Made a quick stop at Home Depot, and a not so quick stop at Safeway, and weâ€™re back home. Groceries are put away. SWMBO is off quilting and Iâ€™m about to fly around Seattle. Fun!
