  1. Never read this combination of words before. Never expected to, either. Counting this as my interesting/funny thing for today.
  2. Soooo... I've started playing this game again, and... this time, it stuck! I think the thought of "no more major updates" lifted my spirits in regard to it. I think it's safe to say that it's the first time in a little over three years that I like KSP :)

    I still have a couple beefs, sure. I still think Contract Configurator and Strategia are absolutely essential mods for the enjoyment of this game as it was intended, as are EVE, Scatterer and Chatterer. I still think the mission thingie from the DLC is absolute rubbish and a waste of my money. A couple of mods I really liked broke down a few versions a go and never came back, a shame, but the current state of the game doesn't make me need them as badly. And I absolutely ditched KER, KAS, KIS and a few others and, know what? It's perfectly fine, now! And I (probably) never have to think about any of them every breaking again! Wohoo!

    You might even see a bit more of me on the forums again.

      Have you considered playing stock? :P

      Yes, but... I've always found it lacking. It was really buying Making History right after the EULAgate that made me ragequit, tho; the (stock) game is not perfect, but it's fine.

  3. So, life updates, again?


    I think the main thing is, despite my government's efforts on decimating its own population, I'm still alive. That's already a lot to expect in The Year of Our Lord MMXXI, and I'm so happy to see a lot of familiar faces still active here. 

    I've switched jobs a few times since we last spoke, and as of early this year I've landed on a carreer I've been desiring for quite a while, and am now in a senior position working with data science and machine learning. Still happily married, still happily childless (tho slowly changing my mind), at the moment living at my mother's, but with my own house being built (was already slowly due to budget, and then the whole world fell apart...)


    And... I guess that's it. The itch to play the game never came back, tho I haven't lost hope. To the two or three of you that I've on my Steam contacts list of Gtalk (seriously, is that still a thing???), I may not chat with you, but my heart still warms to see you online from time to time. To everyone else, if you ever wanna check if I'm alive, twitter is for the time being my platform of choice, where you can catch up on my very, very low sense of humour and leftist excrementsposts. Or just add me on steam. I... guess my handle there is "Monstah"...? Here, it's this one: steamcommunity.com/id/monstrim


    Stay alive, everyone. Keep safe. Love!

      It's good to hear from you! Take care man, I know from experience that trying to do something you don't have the drive for feels awful. I've been on a hiatus myself for a good half-year now, though I'm hoping I get the drive to come back soon too. Still checking the forums on a daily basis, though :) old habits never die.

      I sent you a friend request! You should see something from a certain HafCoJoe. I'm not sure if we have any other games in common, but there's only one way to find out.

      Take care, Monstah.

      Google Chats/Hangouts are dead and gone, unfortunately. But I'm glad you're back!

      Eyyy! Really miss you man! 

  4. SURPRI-IIIISE! @pizzaoverhead sorry for skipping your turn, go right ahead my man.
  5. Yup. Once upon a time, said user would indeed be supposed to be working on the forum. TUBM is enjoying way more caffeine than they should.
  6. Came upon these, and had the most wonderful chuckle: Yeah, this is what I missed about here
  7. Yup, yup, yup, yup, and - oh boy - yup.
  8. Didn't they let you know? They just throw darts at a name board. edit - Heh, crap, that even still my signature
  9. Talking about shoes, glad to see my old ones are so well-filled! Wait, Beavis and Butt-Head avatar, is that right?
  10. I've been lurking here for quite some time already, but you might see more of me again in times to come. Glad to see many familiar faces around here!
  11. Whoa, look at that, a green tag!

      Yup, I think the rest of the moderation team felt that by making me a moderator, they'd be forcing me to behave better... :D

    2. monstah


      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that's a good take on it!

      Well, I'm proud. Behavior or no behavior, I'd say you've helped people a lot

  12. Congrats on the moderator position ;) Used to the thousand buttons and dials yet?

      Getting there.... I wasn't told I was mod before I saw all the buttons.  Confused me for a minute..

  13. When I was learning PowerBI, my first project was re-watching the entirety of X-files and track on a spreadsheet, for each episode: a 5 star rating, a theme and mood (e.g., "Conspiracy/Action"), how many aliens appeared, whether it was myth arc or not, and human/alien/offscreen body counts (which I took from a blog rather than counting myself). A few episodes have previously-assumed deceased characters reappearing, that messed up some things... It turns out, I really love the drama episodes. Monster-of-the-Week, only if they're silly episodes (and the one with Bruce Campbell in it BECAUSE BRUCE CAMPBELL). And the decline post 5th season is ~palpable. I also once made a spaceship spreadsheet, but I accounted for things like heat generation, solar panel mass, energy generation efficiency, everything I could scavenge from the much beloved Atomic Rockets website.
