Which will be prone to false positives when the Wi-Fi goes down - which is inevitable in today's crappy lowest-common-denominator computing environment!
Asshole. Then they implemented Sharia Law because "progressives" like you objected to us telling Islam to fuck off.
There's a solution to the "not coming back after a switch" problem, but you have to use ALT-TAB. After the game (Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout etc. - this applies to all of these and maybe more!) switches out, ALT-TAB back to it - you'll get the black full screen or a black window with a title bar.
Let go of ALT-TAB, and then DO THE SAME AGAIN but make sure you are selecting Skyrim again and not another window. That's right, ALT-TAB back out and all the way round, and back into Skyrim a second time, without letting go of ALT until it's at the front again. Voila!! Working game, no lost progress. It's very easy to do once you get the hang of it!
There was a time when you could dismiss laptops for gaming and workstation use when compared to a grey-box custom build, mostly due to the limited power available for hefty graphics cards.
In recent years, 2006 onwards, laptops have been catching up with desktops and as a result, people can now play proper 3D games on them, and yes, use them as workstations. The die-hards are not yet aware of this, and are stuck in a loop assuming all laptops are trash versions of their desktop counterparts - no longer true.
Surely you meant space-borne railgun? Not being pedantic, as not everybody know what a railgun is yet...
Yes, you are correct, painful but nonetheless functional. An FTP client completes the suite; if you're good, you will write good code on any terminal, provided the tools and debugging capability are there.
Obviously it's not my terminal of choice, but I still think that my green-screen Amstrad taught me more as a child than consumer devices teach children today. Sometimes minimalism is more appropriate for learning than "wizards" and whizz-bang. The programmers who took GUI for granted in Visual Studio et al, are churning out self-service buggy insecure code now. Thanks, Microsoft.

Wait wait wait... mod me down... it made me sign up, then it made me fill more forms, then agree to alsorts of EULA's, THEN it demanded a university email address.... Sorry everyone. My download is stopped. And I just corrected the GP, wrongly. Sorry! (ducks and prepares to lose karma)
Troll, incorrect. I'm downloading my first 423Mb chunk now. Requires Yahoo! account, which I just created.
And the article notes (via a link) that Microsoft previously published the number of years in total that games have been played on Windows 10 to date, a more precise metric than uptime even - so of course they know! LOL @ anyone who upgraded to 8 or 10, and trusted the update mechanism at all! Sturdy firewall, sensible usage, physically protect the network. Simple.
