This simulation of flying an F16 "Falcon" goes as far an any computer simulation game has ever gone. Some people have estimated that it takes up to 100 hours, just to learn to play. I conclude: this is not a "game." It's been around for almost ten years - unheard of for most computer games. It's been owned by several publishers, now Lead-Pursuit.
Don't even attempt this without your HOTAS!
The user community is more serious than anything that you can imagine, with some real F-16 pilots participating.
It's possible that we will not see another simulation of this depth in a very long time.
Not for the faint of heart!
It even has it's very own entry in Wikipedia!

Zotero is my tool of choice for recording my web research. The Zotero pane pops up with a single keystroke, I add an item, maybe with an annotation. One more keystroke and I'm back reading. This can be done in less than two seconds.
The organization of material is quite good, but shows some signs of its youth.
For example, there is no way to enter an item of type "person". I need that.
