It doesn't work because it uses sprites of a fixed size, rather than scaled ray-tracing on underlying models like almost all FPSes do. Attempting to run it at 4k would result in units too small to see.

Starcraft I was locked in at 640x480. It didn't run at any other resolution; this was done both to accommodate the fixed-size sprites and so that people with better hardware wouldn't have an advantage (because then they'd see more of the battlefield on their screens).

That's not an analysis, that's just specifying a point in time. As long as you specify the time zone (explicitly or implicitly) it's not a problem. Trying to do an analysis (like calculating durations) on a set of times not specified in a consistent timezone (which you would be doing if some of the times were daylight savings and some weren't) is like trying to measure with a ruler whose length changes while you're measuring.

1) Don't set up an access point. If you still need an access point, set up a encrypted one (which you should do anyways) and don't give the isolated PC the keys. WiFi isn't magic; if there's no place for it to go, it's not going to go anywhere.

2) Put a Faraday cage around the antenna. This could be as simple as wrapping it in foil.
