Why 10 hours for a newbie and 30 days for a "programmer" ?

Hi Judy,

With flight instruction as well as Dreamcard, I believe that the hours 
are actual user time. So
if you keep the Dreamcard engine running on the ramp then  you waist 
the hours so to speak. If on the other hand you close Dreamcard when 
you are not using it then you get most if not all of those ten hours 
each time you restart it.

Unlike Dreamcard when you get to 16 hours in flight instruction 
completed if you have not soloed yet the instructor by law is required 
to tell you that it would not be advisable that you take up flying and 
is required to enter this into his instruction flight logs and your 
flight logbook as well.

As far as the laundry, phone, and kids goes... How do you do that? I 
need to concentrate when I work at the computer.
