Well, it finally happened...

Recommended Posts

I got busted by my IT department for having games on my work laptop. It wasn’t KSP, although KSP was definitely the first game I put on and the reason I started gaming on my work computer. I went for about 4 years of really solid KSP play throughs. Starting around the time we started issuing CAD laptops to the engineers to run SolidWorks, CATIA, and NX. I ultimately got busted for World of Warships which I forgot to log out of and it ran an update which got flagged by IT. 

I don’t think I’m actually in trouble, my manager had known about this basically since the beginning. I never played at work anyway so I doubt this is any kind of fireable offense. Plus I told him about it as soon as I got the email from IT and he just said “thanks for the heads up”.

So here we are, no more KSP on the work computer and I’ve gotta buy a gaming laptop. Actually, as of this writing, I’ve already ordered one: Dell G3 17” and I’m pumped for it to show up.

Wait, are you saying we're not supposed to have games on our work computers?

jk, I actually don't have any installed, but then again, I do get paid to play with model trains at work, so it's not all that bad.

I have KSP installed on my work computer.  I've played it a few times during lunch, but my work computer plays KSP so horrendously bad I don't bother anymore.  I'm talking yellow clock most of the time in pure vanilla with the textures turned all the way down.

We need a mod which allows to open the software windows right in the cabin, on the MFD.

Then we can edit Excel without braking the Oberth maneuver.

And to make a phone call through KerbNet.

P.S.
Also a bitcoin mining mod, too. When your ship is drifting between Duna and Dres, why lose the time?

Just a mod? We need an entirely new facility at the space center which just mines bitcoin. The possibilities are endless.

Not quite.

I work at a (fairly) large model train layout that is open for public.

This is part of it:

Looks like an excellent place to test some Kerbal designs!
