I put flight simming to one side several years ago as other parts of my life
demanded time. The program also outpaced my computer!

Now seems like there's more time. Also built a new PC and added a cable modem
connection. A firewall's been part of my life for a quite a while. Installed
FS2K, fired it up, and started relearning stuff I've almost forgotten. And I'm
seeing some things that are completely new to me.

FS wants to access the web. Big time! Repeatedly. Everytime it's opened.
Here's a small sampling from the logs:

cessna.gua
cessna182s.gua
cessna182s_N.mdl
chain.dll
acontain.dll
advdrv.dll
ai_playr.dll
blade.dll
controls.dll

What's going on?

I can stop it cold by turning off the modem and the firewall, and I really
consider that good practice anyway with FS, but I'm curious.

Anybody else seen this? Or did I accidentally install something I really
didn't want?

I realize you folks may have discussed this many times in the past. Be patient
with me, please! It'll take me a bit to catch up!

And hello to any old friends out there!
