Album with the captures will follow shortly, as I'm currently getting error messages every ime I try to upload something to Imgur... Any advice would come in handy.

Huh... where were these posted? All I kept seeing all weekend long was a note that the forums were being migrated and an invitation to join IRC instead.

those lines were pretty damn good - had some laughs - especially on the "blaming unity" thing as it is just a "well known"-bug-solving-line ;)

I loved the little inside-jokes, like "Removing all data from between September 2012 and April 2013", "Porting KSP to a Nokia 3310", Repurposing Round-8", and "Blaming Unity"

Well done, everyone.

I wondered whether these comments are meant as hint that life support is not so far away, as three messages mentioned snacks.

Why did I post my forum bug report here?

Because I got lost in my tabs, that's why.

Move along.  Move along.

I think the one of how everything got deleted from September 2012 to April 2013 is especially funny :):P
