13 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: Are we talking human?
13 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: >must stop the Russo-Italian killing machine

I think that you stopped us.

And, er, yeah, pizza!
15 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: hm i'm a bit concerned that cetn04 hasn't been on since last friday. i hope we don't see a NMR from him =(
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: oh man. you suck france!!! ;)
16 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1908: I told you, completely random.
21 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: down to the last game now. i have to say once again, even with the CD problems, this set of games with yall has been great. even better than the leagues! i guess the long turns help, and the fun opponents =)
21 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: I agree, these games have been great!
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Yes, I am having fun. (Of course, it probably helps that I am doing well!)
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Gotta keep it safe somehow.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: what?
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Didn't notice that scroll-down thing. Never mind.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: hm, i don't have it. i'm on IE since the new version crashed FF
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: i love that we can send personal messages. that will make setting up a game a million times easier.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Wait, there are PM's now?
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: yeah just look at someone's profile and you can message them =)
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Interesting. I might have to try this out sometime...
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm using FF with no problem
I hate IE
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: yeah IE seems to be having trouble.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm also using Firefox with no problem.

In fact, I was having trouble with the size of this edit box on Firefox, but now that's fixed!
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Tests follow:
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Tests end.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Did anyone get messages about my votes to draw, pause, and cancel the game (and my subsequent withdrawals of those votes)?
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: nope, those message don't happen anymore, i think.

you can see if people voted or not down below.
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: does anyone remember the password? if so, shall i recruit a new russia in the forum?
22 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Hard to notice when people vote then. But I can check if I need to.

And hey, complete archives of all press in the game! And complete orders (including retreat and build orders) too!
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: And no, I don't remember the password, although now that we have complete forum archives, we should be able to find it.

But we haven't replaced CDs before in these games; I'm kind of inclined not to. (Self-serving I know, but sometimes the CDs hurt me more than they helped me.)
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: yeah i know, but we haven't had a CD that big before. whatever, i don't know the password, so it doesn't matter. i looked in the archive and didn't see it.
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yeah, I don't see it either. And my email has passwords only for the ~other~ two games!
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: oops...
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: what order did we make them in, do you recall?
22 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: This was last, as I recall, because a different person created it and it was made PPSC by accident.
23 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: ok, so i will check the logs of the other two.
23 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: oh well, i can't find it. don't matter, really.
25 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Looks like I should have stayed in Constantinople.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Well this sucks.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Okay, I officially surrender.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: No, look, England is defending you from my stab! There's still hope; the Western Triple will rise again!
28 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Um, no, I think that was England trying to take it.
01 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1910: Good, it's exciting again!
02 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: haha yeah, i love it!
05 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: gotta love the player who throws away the chance of a stalemate for one point per SC.
05 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: What is up with England's army?
05 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: well, it was getting into place for a convoy to stp to help germany take moscow, but i guess germany preferred norway. fjords and all that.
10 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1911: russia, you are back? you've been sorely missed!! =P
10 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Has anyone actually heard anything from Russia?

They're still ‘Last seen: Thu 08 PM’ (UTC, your Time Zone may vary), which I think is what they were before, and I'm pretty sure that they were still CD then. I'm worried that this is just some bug.
10 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1911: oh, huh. well, it definitely doesn't show him as CD now. i haven't heard from him and i assumed he had returned.
13 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1911: I sent aoe3rules an email, urging him to log in and get a survival.
17 Aug 09 UTC Ha, Russia sneaked back in for 2 SCs!

In other news, I should have taken Brest for myself and left Portugal. (But I wanted to be CERTAIN, dang it!)
17 Aug 09 UTC good decision. nicely done italy, though more from CDs than your skills i suppose. still, getting G to turn on me was brilliant.

good game all. hope to see you again sometime in a game....
13 Oct 09 UTC H'm, I missed your last post, djbent, since we don't seem to get mail flags after the game ends. So who knows when you'll ever see this?

Yes, it was mostly CDs that let me push ahead here, but it was good to play with you (djbent and the rest) all the same.
