I have played with this a few times and it appears that not a lot of people know about it. A Google Earth based Free online paragliding simulator where you can pick a spot anywhere on our little blue planet choose your glider, wind speed, direction, thermal size. You get a gps map and a vario with some simple controls.
It can be really fun to experiment with a site your are going to or already know, try it in a wind direction when you would not normally go there.

Go check it out. You may need to down load some addons to your system. Dont get caught flying during office hours 😉
