Could well be.. I see Micha active from time to time over at the Kerbal Space Program forums..

Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

I exchanged a couple of PMs with him over at the ED forum - but I left that forum two years ago!

Yeah.. I don't bother with the ED forums.. despite owning the game, I've yet to play it.. even this more recent laptop I'm using now (i5) won't touch it.

I think my machine, which does have some grunt, is about minimum requirement now - but I don't play the game anyway.
