Just WHO are we....????

Postby Sussex » Thu Nov 28, 2019 10:58 am

We all have HUGE respect for the pioneering Dan, Tony and their team, without whom our mind-blowing virtual world would be impossible. They are, quite literally, out on their own. Truly leading the world.

Yes there are bound to be quirks in any field where entrepreneurs push the boundaries in uncharted territories (while Windows, NVIDIA and others constantly move the goalposts).

But I'd like to know about the quirky, surreal, lives that we all lead beyond "the hood".

...In short, who exactly are we?

I suspect we are not "normal" (as judged by others, at least). But precisely how?

This thread is designed to enable forum members to pile in pix illustrating other aspects of their lives so we can create a broader picture.

This could comprise anything illustrating quirky homes, lifestyles, careers, pets, other hobbies (is there time for other hobbies??), partners, even tattoos...

I'd like to kick off with this....

Nice idea, Sussex! :)

I'll join the fray. The picture below illustrates my primary hobbies at the moment. Well, these...and Cruising.

I've worked around aviation since I joined the Air Force back in 1987. My 'career field' then was Weather -- and it it still is now. I manage the Contract Weather Office here at our local International Airport in north-central North Carolina. (Great job for someone with the last name of Rainwater, right?? :lol: ;)

I've got something over 5,500 hours on my sim. I literally taught myself to fly IRL with it -- but that's a bit of a long story for another time.

Anyway, here's my 'quirky' photo of the possessions that occupy most of my time when I'm away from the sim...

Cool cars and a/c, denrainwater! They must be fun - BRILLIANT :D

Would love to hear more about your flying career.

I have done some flying also - started as a boy with RC models and they kinda got bigger. Boys and toys.

I have the Just Flight Tobago (TB10) teamed with Orbyx Shoreham Airport on Flyinside FSX to enable me to relive the past (with the realism, but minus the bills). The software is remarkable - even the 1930s control tower (seen in Poirot and The Crown) has rust oozing from cracks in the walls...

Any others with aircraft (models or full size?).

Cheers!
