03 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry Italy, thought I was in a different game when I hit ready.
04 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Ha ha, no worries :D
04 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry for not checking this game more in the last few days. Cold season has decided to vacation in my house and I've been taking care of the family (when I wasn't at work). Anyway, I'm back. Press to flow soon.
04 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: No worries at all. Life first
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: I've been absent too, sorry everyone. For those experiencing the cold spell in North America, we have the opposite - it's going to be 110 degrees F here in Melbourne over the weekend. Might stay indoors.
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: As I like to say, if it's cold you can always put more clothes on. If it's hot, you can only take off so many before they toss you in jail.
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, hey, at least the jail has aircon.
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: wow, was about to apologize to the board for the same reasons. I am proud to welcome my second son, Owen Palmer, to the diploming world, even if he did come a two weeks early.
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Woo! Congrats, virtuslex!
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Thanks. All are well!
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: And the good news is that this means I will likely be awake for diploming at any hour.... (is that good news?)
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Congats, bruddah!
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Grats! I started on this site two days before my daughter was born. Was a lot easier when she didn't want to grab my phone all the time.... :D
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Fantastic! Gotta love the wee ones. I guess this means you'll be exhausted and unable to think straight and so an easy mark! ;)
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Aren't... aren't you two working together?
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Dun dun dunnnn
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: what gave you that impression Turkey? ITs just that France loves it when the house of hanover is on England's throne.....
05 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Congratz germany. My twin daughters were born a few months before I deployed so I know how the sleeplessness is. Kids are awesome though :-)
08 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hi team! I'm at a friend's bucks day today, so to avoid writing drunken press, I'll be back on tomorrow. Just FYI :)
08 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: What is a "bucks" (for those of us in the Great White North)... Just curious :)
09 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh, sorry :) Might also be called a stag night? It's a party for the groom and his friends a few weeks before a wedding. What do you call that up north?
09 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Bachelor party
09 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ah, I get it.
10 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thanks for playing, England!
10 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Wrip
10 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Profs have posted thoughts on the last phase. I am going to withhold hitting ready until everyone has had a chance to read. Also give time for more press. Expect me to hit Ready around this same time tomorrow.
16 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey all. I hit ready on retreats as I had only one option (didn't want everyone to wait). I'll let the builds phase take it's full time.
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: All - I am travelling with limited internet through sunday. May I request a pause to conduct diplomacy in advance of the next phase, with unpause votes so that the turn processes on Monday or Tuesday?
28 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I'd be ok with that.
28 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: No problem.
07 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Maybe he meant Monday or Tuesday of next week? :D
07 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Possibilities galore!
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Hello all,

I'm at work so comm may be short but I'll be sure to connect with everyone this evening.
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Greetings again Germany! So glad to see you back sir. Can't wait for the game to get rolling again
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Welcome back! Hope your travels were entertaining.
12 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes, in fact they were so entertaining Old Germany never returned from them.

I am New Germany.
13 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Having server troubles. I can only access the game from my laptop, which I cannot take to work. Damn POS Blackberry. if you need to communicate with me, say a lot and make it count. I may only get one chance to respond before submitting orders.
14 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry New Germany, didn't see the name change...
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well this is a fine thank you for keeping your game from being canceled : (
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Think of it as brotherly affection. Now you are part of the gang!
18 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm fairly certain Germany meant Russia's moves.
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Thanks for the game everyone! Congrats to France.
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Ditto!
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Thanks all! What a fantastic group of players! You've all be really interesting folks to play with. Great press, made me think hard! Definitely Dip at its best
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Now to write another EOG. Oh wait, I'm still writing my last one :P
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: The thread for the last one is long locked :)

Oh, and thanks too to Abgemacht for stepping in. Sorry it didn't work out :/
01 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1909: It is true. That was a great service!
