A good friend is visiting from out of town, so I spent the afternoon teaching him to play "Mythic Wars". He seemed to really enjoy it, and since it's his birthday in a couple of days, I gave him a copy to take back with him.

Holy crap. Did I just actually succeed in migrating my Known install to another machine?!

Like, without corrupting it irreparably, or having to start all over??
