Oh shit I never play the PC version of space giraffe because the added ugly power-meter HUD is a sin but apparently it has the full uncut "Cube Is Not For Yiffing" level so now I'm torn

@SpindleyQ my username / password OTP is AzureDiamond / hunter2

I'm working with two-factor authentication stuff at work and all the libraries and stuff talk about "one-time passwords" or "otp"
