Oh man, I need a coffee proof keyboard.

Thanks for that HansMustermann, while I've never managed that, I did watch my brother firing rockets through an open door in a LAN game.

I saw what he was doing and started to warn him, but I was too late.

The door closed as he fired and he fragged himself, was pretty funny at the time.

There is an 8k setting ...mine hiccupped at that but was okay on 4k.
Same here - 4k OK, 8k a bit too much.

Beautiful video, though.
