15 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1913: This is that bug I keep telling you will help you :P

Self organising star dust! - Autumn 1909, Finished Pot: 357 - Winner-takes-all
16 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1913: d00d. Moneybags McGuire Takes All!
17 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1913: Jon, you back yet?
17 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1913: I just got an email from him that he will still be mostly unavailable for at least another 24h.
19 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Christ, I can't even figure out what happened around TUN, lol.
19 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: We bounced :P James finally grew a pair and tried to attack from there..
19 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: It looks like a game of Pick-Up Sticks.
20 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: I did notice you boys were playing tiddlywinks over there.
20 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: You mean in RUM?
21 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1914: I was talking about TUN. I don't know what shroom-fueled fantasy is afflicting the good Mr. Trotsky.
22 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1914: OUch, me nUtz!
22 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: That's weird. I'd swear that MAO fleet wasn't visible last time... must be the shrooms.
22 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: I just moved it in. That's a pretty complicated set of rules that just made me take LYO. Took me about 5m of looking at it to decide WTF happened and that the game, indeed, did not bug. Which, somehow, was my first thought..
23 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: So how was your dinner with the roller girls, Jon? :)
24 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: It wasn't the dinner so much as the thousand gallons of beer.
24 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1915: I think we might be winding in on the longest game ever on the site, btw.
24 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1915: Not even close, one went to something like 1924 or 1926.
25 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: Huh.. oldest apparently means create date... The longest actually went to 95. and another into the 90s..

Diplomacy2.0 - Spring 1995, Finished
25 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: That has to be a site error. There is no way a legitimate game would last through 190 turns. Unless maybe it was abandoned and kept flipping with holds. I wonder if a game automatically shoots itself in the head if all players go CD?
25 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: We should find out.
26 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: Take ROM? I'll push into TYR?
26 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: You don't even pretend to hide how you are going to do me in now?
26 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: My err.. I saw nothing but pink & brown, so I thought it was private chat. Maybe you should squeel more. I've been looking for a reason to use this bit I bought.
26 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1915: Boy, wouldn't that be nasty though? Get to a point like this in a game and then just openly discuss your moves, lol. Not that it would work very well, but I've played with a few assholes around here that I'd like to show open contempt for that way.
26 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1916: Yeah, sorry James. Wasn't trying to be a dick like that. It does sucks that we never got to work together =/
28 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: Jon... I request you join me in circles.. you can totally rotate your armies around SWI.

DO IT!!
28 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: Must be familiar for you... rotating things around big black holes... bahahahahaa.
28 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: ha
29 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: ....I see what you did there..
30 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: Citizen Kang: twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom...
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1916: Which exists in the black hole of Swiss freedomass? Ah, schmierdi bedi bork bork bork bork.
01 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1917: I LOST MAH BOATZ IN TEH MOSCOW TRIANGLE!
02 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Oh sure, make a bigger loop than my poor Krauts can manage. Sure. Real funny Dave.
02 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: map looks like my underwear
02 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: James, I see you're only in 1 game. You are still leaving after this game, right?
03 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Yes, yes I am. Good riddance...
03 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Ok. I was making sure you didn't care about your points before we keep bashing you out of another game (almost) entirely.
03 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Over in this game, the site keeps zeroing out Josh's orders. Kestas wrote a long and convincing post about why it was impossible, but it happened again yesterday. Third time in this game.

03 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Hah... one guy in my other game was bitching about that. We didn't believe him, but apparently it's been happening. hopefully it won't bug on me :(

Although I think I did have MOS or UKR moving up...?
04 Sep 09 UTC Autumn, 1917: Hilliarious! If you convoy a kraut into Syria and turn Portugal pink this would look exactly like Operation EU're Asshole... just going through the motions at this point. The Turkish dogs never surrender!
04 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1918: That's an option... but some d-bag retreated there :)
06 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1918: Um. So we're at 17-17?
06 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1918: What a perfect chance for you to make up for taking advantage of that bug.
07 Sep 09 UTC I'd at least like to make this is a picture moment, if you're up for it. I'm looking for the SC with the most neighbors to it. Then line everything up on each side with you having 1 more strength than I do.
07 Sep 09 UTC I think about the best we could do is line them up along the Warsaw/Rumania front.
07 Sep 09 UTC Of course, this is the last turn, it would just be a lot easier to move out of, say, Naples and just end it. I'm trying to see a good Kodak Moment here, but James perfected the EU're Asshole, the Convoy 'Round the World has been overdone...
07 Sep 09 UTC I was planning on giving up DEN. It "should be" GER's in most games anyway.. Unless you just have a big desire for NAP.
07 Sep 09 UTC Ok. But I'm just not really seeing any good "pose for the camera" opportunities, unless you have something specific in mind.
08 Sep 09 UTC Odd that it says "Resigned" for James... I guess it's a quirk of checking for a win before processing disbands.
