a ton of cli tools. When I first started learning computers everything was CLI, so I use it a bit...

Only game I really play anymore is AI War: Fleet Command. There is just something about a 60+ hour RTS battle that I like. That and fighting a war across 2-10 plus solar systems at once against 2 AI's that could crush me like a bug in less than a minute is intense... I have a 71 hour game save where I'm in a stalemate, I have almost 1000 Capitol ships in my fleet and the whole thing gets wiped out in under a minute if I try to push into any other system.
