Things really have changed in the last 20 years. I grew up in time where many of us watched TV, read a book or spent time with friends during free time. But in the last 20 years, the Internet has become very popular. With that, computers have become more popular as well. People watch TV on their computers, and they also surf the Internet, play games and so much more. I am retired and really have not cared much about computers until recently. A buddy who plays airplane games 365 days per year gave me his old computer. It sat in my office for a couple of months before I decided to try it out.
My buddy and I were both helicopter pilots many years ago, and he told me I should play some flying games with him on the computer. I really did not know if I would even be good with a computer in the first place to be able to play a game well, but he promised to teach me.
I had my buddy come over to set up the computer. He helped me to get an Internet account set up with the same company he gets Internet through. Then he taught me the basics of computer use and how to surf the Internet. There is so much to learn! He loaded a great flying came onto my computer and showed me how to play. I felt intimidated by it at first, but he told me it was pretty easy. He said that I should understand that my being a helicopter pilot in the past was a lot harder than using a flying simulator on my computer! I figured he was right, and took my turn at playing the game. I was hooked from the first minute I began playing. I even surprised myself at how well I play the game, too. I now have a new hobby.
