  1. Perhaps if you turned on the unbreakable switch in the cheat menu? I know that that would be a no-no for playing the game but just for the test? btw. got to admit... the explosion was cool. Took out the water tower too ... excellent... but not really of course.. not supposed to happen. but still.. BOOM! hehehe.

    Well Fin, How much in more fuel did it cost you to take the fuel to your 150K refueling station so that you could use it for refueling at the Mun? Perhaps you are right, trying to help others is becoming a bit tiresome. That was the basic precondition. The question being about the best altitude around Kerbin to have a station and why? It is cheaper to get there from the ground. It is cheaper to take fuel there than a higher orbit. So naturally Hohmann aside, it is cheaper to go from there than from a higher orbit. If you build your station at 160K as was suggested, it will be more expensive to get there from Kerbin, more expensive to send fuel from Kerbin and so by extension more expensive to go to the Mun. As far as I am concerned this banter has has already taken up more of my time than it is worth and the matter is now closed and as such I will not entertain any more silly arguments.

    The point is, it shouldn't change your laptop in any way and so should be safe to run. It will let you know if your laptop and it's associated hardware is Linux Friendly or not.

    I think if I were you, I download a version of linux like 'Tails' It is a very secure version of linux designed to run only from a USB Stick. All of it's storage is on the stick so it will not use your HD for storage for it's own personal use. Once you have a USB with 'Tails' on it you can use it on virtually any PC that will allow you to boot from a USB port. You will have to check your BIOS settings to make sure your lap-top has the ability. When you close down it will be all like, 'You never seen me.. right?' to your lap-top. Using and playing with a version like this will let you know if your hardware is 'Linux friendly' as some hardware from some manufacturers can be considered 'Linux Hostile unfriendly' and will not allow it to use their hardware. Assuming Tails works, then make sure you back up and can recover any data you will not want to lose in the event of HD corruption by it's current operating system. Tails will not install to your HD. It is only designed to be used from a USB stick. You will have to have a version of your preferred Linux to hand.

    Clementine has pretty good rep for music files. Most of the games I play are available on the Linux version of Steam. Sounds to me like your Linux HD is getting bigger and your Microsloth HD is getting smaller.

    I could have it horse before cart... I think they did have a pro edition. 17.3 hehe.. I'm pretty sure that was my first. Anyway they include Nvidia drivers in the upgrades now so no need to install them manually any more.

    Well... I know from personal experience that Shmindows doesn't like sharing a boot sector. I think it realises that linux is there and throws a wobbler. Had it happen to me twice (corrupted my boot sector) and heard a LOT of other people complain about the unfriendliness of it all. Still, I know that a lot of other people get away with it just fine. So.. do ya feel lucky? well... do ya? Microsloth offered to upgrade my 64 PRO to schmindows 10. I'm glad I didn't do it. Someone told me that they upgraded and only got a 32 bit version and would have to pay for 64 bit. I'm currently using Mint with Nvidia and so far no problems... what kind were you experiencing?

    If you are going to Dual boot keep them on separate drives. Shmindows can be peevish.

    I got linux just so I could play KSP in 64 bit.

    I'm using Linux Mint. I actually have a dual installation. Linux and Shmindows. If you are thinking of a dual install I recommend having each operating system on a separate drive and select the operating system at boot. Shmindows doesn't really like to share and can get cranky.
