Sim Saturday!

Work from home, they said. Be your own boss! Set your own hours! Sounds good, doesn’t it? Only I’ve been doing the freelance thing full-time for six years now, and the promise of freedom is a whole lot sweeter than the reality. On a typical day, I’m up early, racing around from project to project, working way harder than I ever did as a salaried employee.

Fanboy Friday wants to know: what do you fly? And where?

My well is about dry, idea-wise, right now. I’ve spent a week neck-deep in 3DS Max tutorials and tweaking arcane bits of code, and my brain is fried. So rather than just bag on writing Fanboy Friday altogether, I thought I’d give the rest of you a say. Tell me this: what is your favorite sim aircraft at the moment? And when you fly, where do you do it? Continue reading
