So, does anyone else want in on my Kerbal Space Program run-through?

I can't guarantee any roles, apparently there's a function that maps names to roles (pilot, scientist, engineer).  I can say this:  You will go to space.  You might get stranded there.  You might even hit the ground at high rates of speed.

And I got 'beers' autocorrected to 'beets'. Fortunately, g+ allows me to fix typos I notice after hitting "post"

Making coffee before having coffee. Does that seem right to you?

Funny how removing the mccaffee crapware that came bundled with +Naomi Evans​ computer fixed all the problems.

Hooray, I'm one day older.  37 was a good year, hopefully 38 will be as well!
