  1. Past hour
  2. Oops, forgot one small important detail - it is the "Updated Olson Realms World".
  3. Today
  4. Game is very sluggish unfortunately - lots of deja vu resets. Here are updated world tunnel maps in case you go online.
  5. I've activated the free 30 day trial for Minecraft Realms and uploaded the realms world save to it. It will be active until around January 12-14 2018. Working on inviting the former players to it - if I can remember the names used. Feel free to visit or not visit - up to you. I think: Arnelos was Arnelos GK was Spacy_Cadette WPC Dale was thedale Dalet was dalet I thought BigDork was something like El_Carlsson - but it says that name doesn't exist
  6. Thanks guys. It's a very taxing job, the kids ARE a FRIKKIN handful. Been close to crying more than once. But the coworkers and leaders are, as I said, very positive and supportive! As for today: Handed in my final exam before I'm 100% finished. When it's graded and (hopefully) passed, I will be able to get a permanent job at one point, and I will get a lot more income. Tonight I was at the cinema, watching SW ep 8. That was amazing. This might be the best SW movie ever. Multitudes better than ep7. I love the original trilogy. Among the best movies made. This one. This one was up there with them.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Right of way
  9. The problem is that the Republicans lost it back in the 60's with Nixon and Co., and they haven't really recovered since then. Back in the day, Republicans stood for 2 things - social justice and being fiscally conservative. When they lost those goals in the 20's and 30's, it directly led to the great depression (among many other things, granted) and in the decades of Roosevelt they went back to their roots, reorganized, and started back strong. Unfortunately, they quickly lost it again. Today they are seen as being pro-business (which is not the same as fiscally conservative - although many think it is) and their social justice got turned into "moral majority" - aka "Religious Nut Job" For some reason Roosevelt won over the black community - even though his policies (such as redlining) are what have created many of the social problems today - and that has plagued the Republicans ever since. I honestly don't understand it, but the truth is that Republicans share most of the same values as large parts of the black community, but the few sticking points of differences are so huge, and are honestly things that the party should step back from, but never will, that I don't see any reconciliation until the Dems screw up in too large a way to ignore. The money side I at least understand - it takes lots of money to get elected and so you tend to gravitate to where the money is. It is a complete usurpation of the original values of the party - but that isn't a surprise as people in general have very flexible values when it comes to staying employed (which for politicians is what it really boils down to). Shame, really, as increasing the debt (without a specific & limited goal in mind) is so Democrat in nature as to almost boggle the mind. Reagan did it to kill communism, but everybody since then really should have been trying to fix it, not just ignore it.
  10. wrongway feldman
  11. Bad navigation
  12. 'Tis okay.
  13. Yah, if I had visitors in the house, I would not be able to do my turn, even at normal operation, it took me two weeks to get to it. I've known Nik for a long time (on-line), I was just picking on him, sorry.
  14. Or just continue to do what they have increasingly done over the last few decades and just keep their heads in the sand and hope that it will get better for the party, which, on hindsight, has gotten worse over time... I grew up Republican, in a Republican family. I served time in the military. I quit the party decades ago, because I did not like THEN the directions that the party was heading towards and the evolving MINDSET of the dye in the wool Republican leadership and way that the general party "masses" were increasingly blindly following that leadership... The my party, no matter what mindset. I had seen then turning into Sheep while the wolves were leading them to where they wanted to go. They lost a sense of doing the right thing, even IF it was NOT what the party wanted (which was sometimes, not really the right thing). After I had quit the party, I did join the Dems, but soon left to become independent, because in a lot of respects, they were even more brain dead than sheep... I later joined the Libertarians, as they are closer to what I think and feel in a lot of things. Granted, I am mixed about their stand on Drugs and feel that they need to really step back from that and tone it down. And in a lot of respects, they have their minds open and their eyes open and are willing to take stands when something DOES need to be done about something. They, at least, aren't willing to be sheep... I am not asking you to quit your party, but to really take off the blindfolds and take the bold steps that will bring the GOP back to be something to be proud of... Quit being sheepish about it...
  15. My excuse is, as I've said, that I have a new job as a teacher - and this job has turned out to be VERY exhausting. Kids with all kinds of issues, I can't go into details, but it's been an experience that has made me quite the zombie. It's really been bad. At the same time I had my last exam TODAY, which was hard to write and took much time and energy beside the job. Today we get three visitors, who stays until right before Christmas. Family... And at the same time, it's still a week left of work...
  16. If you do, you do... Although, the same argument could be said to me... But my excuse is that I am STILL learning the game (my second game is going fair, I think... hopefully... )... So really, what's your excuse??
  17. We've been there for over a year, man. There's nothing to be done at this point until the shamelessness burns itself out other than what we're already doing: being obnoxiously persistent in our insistence that this will not end well and bearing the malice that produces until the narrative flips in a few years. For now, you should see my facebook feed. Excessive tribalism is one hell of a drug and the addicts are SUPER angry at anyone who manages to cut themselves off and goes clean. The current moral universe of the party base is essentially loyalty to tribe is all that matters and victory for the tribe is the only conceivable goal. All else shall be sacrificed before it. Defending a candidate like Roy Moore - a credibly accused child molester - is seen as an honorable act worthy of praise and gratitude. Turning on the child molester who bears the tribe's standard today is seen as the greatest of betrayals to the tribe - the action of a coward or traitor. That won't last, though. The Gloria Steinems and other lefties who defended Bill Clinton's misbehavior and set their movement back a generation didn't ultimately fare well coming into the new century as a new generation of women in their movement wanted to cleanse themselves of any uncomfortable reminders of that period and move forward pretending it never happened. I expect a similar process on the right: the bulk of people who were ok with this period will seek to cleanse themselves of that memory by purging the worst actors and pretending this all never happened. And a new generation will rise to leadership that genuinely had nothing to do with any of this. Until we get there, though, we get to live in the current moment - and that sort of sucks.
  18. I would never bow out because of that. Granted, we would probably lose if I were to get my hands on the game in this state, though.
  19. Aren't you yet ashamed of the direction of your party... How much longer will Honest Republicans allow this crap to contine before they DO SOMETHING??
  20. Yeah, either that or Fraxis finally has some decent MP play for the new CIV that is supposed to be out soon.... Or maybe, he's working for both....
  21. There's a time for build'n and a time for kick'n some A$$!!!
  22. It took less than 24 hours for Moore to do so.
