So far the Unites States, France, and Britain are limiting their attacks to destroying the Libyan military infrastructure, not aiding the rebels or targeting Gaddafi personally. How long can you be just a little bit interventionist?
MagicJack: I have a friend who got this for her girlfriend in Mexico so the calls would be 'local'. They use it just about every day and like it quite a bit.
I use a Broadvoice line (www.broadvoice.com) in my home/office, and it's been great. I've never had any call quality problems and on the Bring Your Own Device plan I'm on the basic monthly charges are only $5.95 (Plus $5.50 in taxes), and the long distance rates can't be beat ($0.00/minute).
Also, if you're not sure about VoIP, you may want to just think about shopping around for a better Long Distance service instead of going VoIP: http://www.saveonphone.com/ (I can vouch for ECG - I've saved a lot of people a lot of money with them)
Is there any interest in playing this type of live game:
- 5 mins/phase - Non-anon (Player's names are visible) and ppsc - No draws, cancels, or pauses. (In case of stalemate I like the idea of seeing who can stay on the longest but I would be willing to draw instead if that was what people wanted)
The government in Syria has fired on protesters. I severely doubt Syria will degenerate into what Libya is today. Iran/Hezbollah and a strong military will probably cull any protest remaining after Assad's reforms and Western nations are in no place to intervene (nor perhaps will the U.S. want to destabilize an Iraqi/Israeli neighbor, albeit in the U.S. eyes a bad neighbor). What do you all think this will do to the region if anything?
Looking at results of finished games I see a fair number of those, and I don't get it. Why not just keep playing? Or if someone CDed, why not cancel instead? With that many players, I just can't imagine a situation where no one has the chance to expand further.
