    It's not as much about getting from Point A to Point Z, but about the points in between. Sit back, enjoy the ride. Our existence is but one of those intermediate points.

  3. Ok, today has been spent doing various tasks including grading mid-terms. The mid-term was valued at 100 points; today I actually had a student score a perfect 0/100 AND misspelled their name on the exam. Incredible.

      " this student was looking for a mate "

      This is still around in university?

      @Dman979: No, this student insists on doing things the hard way. It was obvious her name misspelling was a typo... At the beginning of the semester this student was looking for a mate, not a degree...

      @ZooNamedGames: No, this student is that lame.

      oof. That's... wow.  Ya might wanna make a stronger version of your cute custom emoji.

      How can a student be that lame?!

    Serious question time... and I've probably given the moderation staff some real concern since I mostly just poke fun at them... Does the KSP forum have an RSS feed that can be subscribed to?
  6. Now you have me curious. This would definitely help me get rid of mods that are underutilized in my games.
  7. Okay, then total nerd. But you're in great company... Don't forget, I'm so much of a nerd I sat and made a calendar based off the cycles of the Mun...

    This is probably the funniest thing I've read all day. Thanks for the laugh! And then there's me... an anti-moderator... Hey, trying to keep the dualism principle alive and well in the forum...

    Oh, ok. I knew about that one... Thanks.

  13. Just do what I do. Each night when I shut down, I always save a backup copy of the persistent file. And I name it using the YYYYMMDD format. You can also just delete the config file stored within HyperEdit's folder. It is date/time stamped when you start moving things around in orbit...
  14. Meh, what's the fun in that?!
