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?
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?
There are countless super-long convoys, and every single one of them is done just to go "wow, look at this!" Honestly, I don't see the point. The best convoys are the navy/army switcheroo when the opponent isn't expecting it.
One of my first games. http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=17528#gamePanel. It was a short convoy, edi to london but I was really proud of it because I saw the attack coming and saved myself. Sprin 1904-autumn 1905.
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.
