Fund for the Public Interest
Anyone worked for them? I was offered a job as a field manager, making about 400-500 a week for the summer. I've read plenty of bellyaching online. Some of it was legitimate, but has since largely been resolved by a class action lawsuit. The rest was basically complaining that it was a lot of work, at only a little bit above minimum, and repeated failure to meet your fundraising quota resulted in firing, no if's and's or but's about it.

Replacement needed.
Not an amazing position but a potentially goo one and very influential, especially if you come before the adjudication in 7 minutes.

I have an account on MLB.com but cannot watch the Jays game because it's blacked out in my area. Does anyone know a quick and safe way to get around the restrictions? Feel free to PM me so multis don't get any ideas.

The Thread for People Who Want to Gunboat Good and Do Other Stuff Good Too
Would the gunboaters who frequent the 1000 D buy-in games please post here how they play gunboats so the rest of us may learn from you? Looking at a game isn't enough, we need to know what you're thinking when you see a board. What does the better player see that I miss?

I don't drink.

I thought this was a very interesting game. I was impressed by everyone;s play. At the end, I was hoping that france would solo. I supported him to BOH but he did not take it (understandable). I lasted far longer than I expect I should have. I think tbhis was a detriment to france and a bonus to the others. It brings and interesting scenario where hanging on until bitter end and losing early seem equally appealing.

Good game everyone! That was a good'n.

Well, I'm a bit disappointed I couldn't solo, but really, the rest of the board was very in-tune with my solo prospects throughout and were very quick to push me back at the stalemate lines.
I made one attempt early on to get passed the stalemate lines before anyone could stop me/took notice. I kinda jumped over the remnants of G/E to try and do it quickly, planning to finish them off once I had secured TUN or MOS or something. I think this is what Lando was referring to. But the resistance was firm across the board, so I pulled back, hoping chaos would break out again in the east and I could try again later.

Well, I spent a little while finishing off E/most of G, but the east remained ordered so that I had no shot of breaking through Italy into TUN. I tried to move on MOS/WAR by putting armies in STP/LIV/SIL/PRU as quickly as possible, but no dice. So I finished off G and drew. Sorry Lando.

All in all, a fantastic example of how to react to a solo threat. Great job Italy/Russia/Turkey.

Yay, database backup killed my long EOG :D Well, here goes again:

I spotted the French solo potential in 1907. I thought about it and came to the conclusion that I could not solo before France did, especially with all Russian troops at my doorstep and no real defense at the stalemate line in the north, so I decided to play for the draw. That's why I moved to Bohemia from Tyrolia. I intended to send three messages:

1. Italy, I'm moving away from you. I'm taking Tunis to fight France, not you.
2. Germany, if you need me, I'll back you up.
3. Russia, if you attack me, I will get behind your lines and fuck you up!

The move to Silesia afterwards was intended to give the last two more weight. I'm curious how much of that got across. I'm pretty happy that I was able to send up a raider into northern waters, but I'm also pretty mad at myself for the retreat in 1911 where I went to Brest and condemned the unit. I mostly wanted to pull as many French units back from the stalemate line as possible, but it would have been better to stay in the waters around England.

Italy and Russia, it was great working with you both. I'm glad that we were able to defuse the situation in the east rapidly and efficiently.
