Sorry the post count was down over the weekend. I spent the last few days recovering from the flu, which sapped my energy to do just about anything.
There was an Elder Scrolls Online beta weekend over this past weekend but the game wanted me to download approximately 29 gigabytes in six patches before it would let me try it. This is after downloading some 22 gigabytes for the previous beta test weekend. By the time I completed all six downloads, it was 12:43am on Monday morning and the beta test had ended 43 minutes before. So, I pretty much ended up beta testing the ESO launcher... :P
I also managed to strand a total of four Kerbals on the surfaces of the Mun and Minmus. In the case of the Mun landing, I left two Kerbals with insufficient fuel to get back into orbit. In the case of Minmus, I figured since the Mobile Laboratory had a crew hatch, I'd be able to EVA occupants of it back to a primary lander to get them off the surface. Nope. Or at least, not as far as I can find... Anyone know how to EVA occupants from a Mobile Laboratory? At least I also soft-landed a series of three large probes and two smaller probes on the surface of KSP's Eve.
So all in all, my gaming weekend was a partial loss but at least not a total one! Anyway, I'm feeling much better today so I'll get caught back up in my blogging around here. Again, my apologies for the delay.
In the meantime, this feels like a good time to wrap up thank yous from the December pledge drive. So big thank yous to Jean-Mira, Leucy Kerastase, Fenn Herstal, Grythome DrakeAmour, Jai Kedrick, Dead Jedi, Riksma, Darkwolf, Brachah, Ronin Atreides, and Sedul Masterson (who used the blog to stay informed while deployed; thank you for your service!). Thank you all so much for your contributions and your kind words!
Back to work!
