03 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Congratulations
04 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Whoa, crazy! Yeah, no problem. Congrats!
04 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: That's a good reason to pause :D
04 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Bugger! Missed a turn. That's what you get for having a social life.
04 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: France and Italy, pause please.
04 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Sorry, for some reason I'm not always getting an "envelope" symbol when there's a Global message.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: We are back from the hospital a day early. Everything went wonderfully. Thank you for pausing.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Congratulations! :)
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Boy or girl? Name? Congrats!
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Baby Girl, Sarah Therese Anastasia. We are amazed how easily it went compared to our other babies.
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Congratulations! Many Nappy Returns!

I'll say to you what someone said to me when my daughter was born. "When you have a son, there's only one prick to worry about. When you have a daughter, there's millions of them out there!"
07 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Well she will have 2 older brothers, so that should help somewhat :)
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: As an older brother myself, I can tell you, dad, you have less to worry about than many. ;)
17 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Oh sweet Lady Luck, thank you for Turkey NMRing!!!
17 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Well Poop
19 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oops. Dead.
19 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: @England:You fought well and didn't CD, which is a big plus these days.
19 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thanks :) I try. Early on I had a few resigns, but then I realized how incredibly annoying it can be so now I try to fight to the last.
20 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Anyone want support from Sevastapol in exchange for keeping me alive.
20 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Sorry, I would if I could but we're 5 (unopposed) moves apart.
23 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well I'm the third to depart. Good game everyone, I will have to watch periodically to see how this turns out.
24 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: How about a 4-way draw once Russia exits?
24 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: Come on - I think Germany has the potential to Solo. He can occupy the North Sea, Norwedian Sea and North Atlantic ocean within a year. Then he is free to take Great Britain, He is on both sides of the major stalemate line, so unless there is a real coordinated effort, he should be able to win.
24 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm not so foolhardy as to presume I would solo, but I also don't really see the point to a 4-way draw. Italy, do you feel that no further progress could be made by anyone against anyone else?
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm sure France could try make inroads into my SCs, but with Turkish support I think I can lock him down. Let's play it by ear. If we can lock the board in a stalemate then we can talk again?
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Well, of course. Tactical stalemates require diplomatic stalemates. Thus I should think if a tactical stalemate were formed, we would have to draw.

I just think there's room yet to pack it up.
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm pretty sure that three of us are on right now, if France is here, can we all finalize and hit the next turn?
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Ah, very well.
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: So is France actually on? If not we don't need to keep staring at the screen :P
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I dunno. =P
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Blast! My scheme at determining if you were a metagamer failed! Back to square one... :P Ok then, goodnight all till the turn actually happens.
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I have been accused of multiaccounting before.

Irony: The accuser was later banned for multiaccounting. Oops.
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Morning! I'm here and I have a few minutes.
25 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Finalized.
25 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1911: Ouch, sorry about that Germany. But, just desserts for the other guy I guess.
25 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1911: This is going to be an interesting turn!
25 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'm not so sure I like the sound of that...
26 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1911: Why must Turkey NMR? :(
26 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1911: At least nothing bad happened! Relief!~
26 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1912: Yeah, sorry about that guys. My sleep schedule has been screwed so I didn't plan far enough ahead.
28 Feb 11 UTC I don't think this needs to be dragged out any further. I propose a draw. Hope everyone else agrees.
28 Feb 11 UTC Seconded.
28 Feb 11 UTC I feel like Italy could be very easily eliminated, but if Turkey insists on coming to his defense then it would drag out far longer than necessary. Very well.
28 Feb 11 UTC That what allies are for :)
28 Feb 11 UTC *That's*
28 Feb 11 UTC Yes, but to subvert your own self-interest for the good of an alliance? Seems a bit over the top... but who am I to judge?

In any case I've agreed to draw, so...
28 Feb 11 UTC It's a 23 point difference between a 3- and 4-way draw. And attacking me introduces instability which may result in France or Germany being able to attack Turkey.
28 Feb 11 UTC Good game guys. Actually, one of the best I've played. Thanks.
28 Feb 11 UTC Eden, I figured someone as cheeky as Germany would try to take me out at some point. So I preempted that. ;)
28 Feb 11 UTC This is strange. When I posted "Good game guys..." the previous message in this list was this one from Turkey "Yeah sorry about that guys...". The others between those two simply weren't there. Anyone know why those other messages didn't appear until now? Did this happen to anyone else? (P.S. I'm using firefox on WinXP).
