Oh, Cry Me A River (And then Have Jesus Walk On It Already...)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/14/christians-persecuted-archbishop-canterbury-carey Yeah, no, sorry--you don't get to pull the "Stop picking on me!" card when you're the dominant view in the West, have a billion-plus followers, and, oh yes, have kicked and killed and demonized and persecuted countless millions of Jews and Muslims and Atheists anyone ELSE who dared disagree with your opinion over the last 2000 years.
Favorite (Short) Poems? (And Perhaps We Can Put A Few Of Our Own?)
I think we did this a while back, where we posted different things we'd written...and I've definitely had a "Top ___ Works Ever" thread (or two or four or four thousand) before... So here they are combined--favorite short poems (ie, no Iliad/Paradise Lost/The Waste Land, good as they are, they're longer poems and in another category) and, for the brave...perhaps we can get a Poetry Corner going? :)
I want everyone to private message this guy as he was too rubbish to win when anyone else was playing so he didnt draw even though russia had helped nim all the way through (russia isnt me) he is the worst type of player and nobody shud play with him ever again.
So, that thread on Ubuntu made me want to try again on my laptop. I installed 11.10 and I have the same problem as before. On windows, my computer idles at 33-49degC. In Ubuntu, it idles around 82degC. What's with the 40degC increase? Thoughts?
SG, you were expressing something about not being able to save all your messages with any ease. If everyone saves the communications they send, we should be able to post just those for anyone who cares to see. Also, I'll be saving everything I receive, so I can also post any message from you if you have trouble keeping track of communications.

OK, so despite the sudden emergency, I got emails out and orders in. No need to pause but thanks for noticing.
@jwalters - I am making some improvements to the greypress page to turn it into a press control page that includes attachments for white press, grey press with or without attachments, and black press with or without. Currently I can do grey with or without so if you get a game going and want me to set it up on the system, I will be happy to do so. I just need to know the players with their emails and then, once the game starts, their assignments so I can set up the forwarding accounts.
Who would win in a gunboat between seven of yourself?
A fun little exercise that has been helping my play style recently was to learn what bias I have in game. So pull out your dip board and make what you think is the best gunboat opening for each power, then play each power to the best of your ability to win. Who wins? Who gets eliminated first?
I'm sure some of you recall the embarrassing moments thread we had a few weeks ago? Well I have searched by google and by rote reading, page by page, and not found it. Neither did abgemacht, the sweetheart that he is, when he went searching. Any help locating it would be appreciated. I do not recall who started the thread.
