Re: Congrats to pw!!

I can indeed confirm that I played a game against actual people, in real time, in real life. Thanks to Randy and everybody else involved in organizing Massacre for letting me show up for one round. Thanks Aurelin for stealing my +1s. Some general observations: ftf is so stressful. I should have done...

Re: What are you reading?

In any case, last week I finished All the Things You Never Told Me, and now I'm on The Calculating Stars, which just somehow beat The Poppy War for a Nebula. How is The Calculating Stars? I like some of MRK's other stuff. I'm still mad that it beat The Poppy War, but it's actually really good. I ne...

Re: Don’t have time for games

whooooooooosh whoooooooosh whooooooosh We just need to ask Peterwiggen if he thinks ATC is an idiot who doesn't know how many hours there are in a day, or if he was joking that he would work on that issue in the 25th hour of the day. The former means Fluminator is the ultimate woosher, the latter m...

I have a group of friends who need a replacement (5-center) Austria in a private, 72-hour, press game. PM me for details and password.

What do you mean they don’t have time? It’s like one line “if day length less than 28 hours, add more time”. I dont see what’s so hard.
Maybe if they had more than 24 hours in a day, they'd be able to take on random requests like this.

Re: What are you reading?

This week I finished The Color of Law and Invisible Planets. I think I'll start The Raven Tower soon. I just looked up target Raven Tower. Sounds like my cup of tea. Did you end up reading it? If so, how was it? I really enjoyed Raven Tower. The central conceit is really cool, and she develops it w...

Re: Don’t have time for games

The developers around here are all volunteers and they're really busy. If you really think this is important, you should code it up yourself and make a pull request.

Re: User Name Explanation

Peter Wiggin is a very moral character who would never backstab anybody from a science fiction series written by a guy who's not at all homophobic and definitely didn't sell out and put his name on a bunch of low-quality collaborations later in his life.

This site is a fucking shitshow.
Would you prefer a shitshow with impertinent ban messages or a shitshow with a bunch of cheaters in games?

I do remember being told not to say rude things in ban messages when I was a new mod...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Start

As an admin and a player, I'm very concerned that the TD seems to be playing favorites here. As a former member of Greater Lakes, I'm even more concerned that all the favorites are from Cascadia.
