Aiiee! The Steam Summer Sale is in full swing. Too much temptation.

Over the last few years I’ve become more of a fan of Steam and a couple of oth­er online deliv­ery ser­vices for my PC gam­ing needs. I can­’t actu­ally remem­ber the last PC game I bought in a brick-and-mort­er store for my desktop. And now, the Steam Sum­mer Sale is reach­ing its mid-point and so […]

Ever since the Apple II days, I’ve been a flight sim­u­lat­or geek. I’ve always been inter­ested in avi­ation, but due to my less-than-per­­­fect eye­sight, a career as a pilot was­n’t in the cards. But that did­n’t dim my interest in avi­ation. And giv­en my interest in com­puters & tech­no­logy, it seemed nat­ur­al that I’d grav­it­ate […]
