    New Website status update

    The gods have plans of their own, which as usual remain inscrutable. Michael
  2. Same here if I am playing a WW II title. However, for the last couple of years if I am playing BS, I seem to mostly gravitate towards meeting engagements. Once in a while I will play an attack engagement as defender in BS, and have found that to be generally satisfying. I love a good ambush. Michael

    Next Korean war is coming close...

    Not too surprising actually. After all, they are in fundamental agreement on one important point: the destruction of the United States as an important world power opposed to tyranny. Michael

    The 'Never Say You've Seen It All' Thread

    Seems to me to be a remarkably stupid way to spend one's afternoon. One wonders how many broken bones, crushed cartilages, sprained muscles, etc. were the result. Oh well, to each his own I suppose... Michael

    Mars is the parent company that makes Snickers. They also are the makers of Milky Way, Three Musketeers and maybe one or two others the last I checked. It has been years since I ate any of them, but Snickers was a great favorite of mine for a long time. Michael

    Jon writes about war

    Been a while, Jon. Nice little essay. Thanks for it. You might have devoted more discussion to the AEF. Though at the outset they did indeed make mistakes, their advances in the last months were dramatic and exceeded what was expected of them. Michael

    Happy Birthday, America!

    Declaring Independence was a bold and dangerous move. The Continental Congress could have lost, and almost did. Probably would have if the French hadn't taken it as an opportunity to put their thumb in England's eye and come to our aid. Michael
  8. And don't forget Bend in the River. I watched that as a kid. It was my first awareness of Jimmy Stewart of many. Michael
  9. I generally don't care for him as an actor; I think his success is based mostly on having a certain kind of face. However, in the Jesse Stone series of movies for tv, he has found a character for himself that even I quite like. Michael

    A long delayed update

    Which I did just yesterday. The reason I didn't do that a couple of days sooner is that I couldn't for the life of me remember my user name in the store! Michael

    Tanks and Roads

    This is basically how it worked in TacOps. But as I have posted before, that is a different game with different code, and what might be easy in one might be a nightmare in the other. Michael

    The 'Never Say You've Seen It All' Thread

    I'm not sure that I'd call it a "toy", unless you figure all scale models are toys. Michael

    Ye gods! Talk about clutter... Michael

    A long delayed update

    I don't use Windows; I'm on a Mac, a fact that I have announced probably a hundred times on this board. And yes I know all about startup items. But that is irrelevant since I rarely start up my Mac, but simply rouse it from sleep. But that damned Steam ap interrupted me for minutes at a time whenever I was using my Mac and it felt like doing so. So you smart ass Windows users can just crawl back in your caves and stop mocking me. Michael

    Afrika Korps or Early War?

    Incredibly so, National Geographic every now and then will run a spread of photos taken from an ultralight over the Sahara and it really is amazing. I think Avalon Hill really put a curse on NA when they released Tobruk with a blank mapboard. I bought the game and when I opened the box my heart sank. I played a game or two but that is all. It was a great game system (except for an over-abundance of die rolls) and I would have loved to play it some more, but that map just drained all my enthusiasm for it away because I knew that that was not how the North African desert looked.
