Time to dust of the old joystick

I'm following Steam on Twitter and in yesterdays Twitter stream I noticed a couple of interesting things. Microsoft Flight Simulator X can now be found on Steam and it has been there for a couple of months. It's also on sale this weekend for 4.99€. It's of course called Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition. It contains the original game and all the official add-ons (deluxe, gold and acceleration) apart from the SDK. Time to dust of the old joystick this weekend, by the way a Saitek Cyborg 3D. It's old and no precision tool for the hardcore simmer but it's very sturdy and has more buttons I can remember for a casual simmer like me.

Blogging on my phone is not that great

Lately on the Windows Phone blogosphere there have arisen a few problems, mainly with Blogger. The is that if you load this page I'm on now writing my blogpost (on my PC) you see a bar above this text where you can insert a link or a photo, they no longer work. I don't know if it's because Microsoft did some changes to their web browser on WP or Google made their blog writing page less accessible for either IE or smart phones in general. Short story, not being able to post links or pictures in you blog is bad. There are some workarounds and several step processes to work around this but on your phone it's too tedious. Well HBlog works...
