15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Ok, I think all of you know by now that I'm talking. Seeing as I can't be destroyed (as per the title) it must logically follow that I win.

Good game all.
15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm talking too, so it's at least a two-way draw!

Good game!
15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: I can talk! I can talk! I CAN SIIIIIING!
15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: To clarify (since I named the game), it doesn't mean "speak and win," or even "last person to speak wins" (we have forum threads for silliness like that). Good try, though. :-)
And thanks everyone for joining. Have fun.
15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: So it looks like this game is now a 4-way draw with England, Austria, and Italy being "destroyed."
15 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: You're just saying that because you're running last at the moment, Charlie. We know what's really going on.
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Please don't destroy me. Who would make you pasta and wine?
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: I got the wine covered buddy ;)
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: You call that French swill wine? I may use it as a mouthwash on occassion but that is about the extent of it. You should try a good Sangiovese my friend.
16 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Bah! I fart in your general direction! Clearly you have not had a good Cote du Rhone!

I would be happy to send you a bottle in exchange for some cheesecake :D
20 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Arrrrgh. Got ambushed when I got to work this morning and was tied up until 4. Sorry everyone.
22 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Wow.. The shipwrights have been busy...
22 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Ahh, the naval arms race. Love it.
22 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Haha. My daddy makes better ships than your daddy! (Everything can be reduced to a playground insult)
22 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: I know you are but what am I?
22 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: I'm like rubber and you're like glue, what you say bounces off me and sticks to you!
23 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: YOUR MOM bounces off me and sticks to you.
23 Jan 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Ouch. That one cuts deep. :P
24 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, looks like this game isn't mine.
26 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: I hope no one misses the deadline this time!
05 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I think everyone must love my gondolas! I must admit that they are a great tourist attraction ;-)
09 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: So sorry, you guys. I thought I had more time.
(Austria and I deserve each other...)
09 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: That's why I always leave a set of orders ready in the first opportunity. Then I can change after talking to the other diplomats, but I never NMR (except for two non-consecutive turns in a live game when I was having connection troubles).
09 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I had the opposite problem once: I put in the preliminary orders, then thought about it, talked about it, figured out what I wanted to do, and had it in my head so perfectly that I trusted my grey checkmark meant I put in the orders in my head.

Overall, though, it's a better idea to put in preliminary orders; I agree.
11 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hmmm...
24 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: <yawn>
26 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I believe the Italian leader is skiing this weekend in the Birkebeiner, which may explain the delays...
28 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Now, that attack on Naples was funny!
01 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Aw crap. It sure was.
I guess that's what I get for putting my orders in so quickly.
Those Turkish ex-pats in Naples are pretty hearty, though. They stood their ground!
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well played, everyone! Kudos to Italy and France for staying to the end when all was clearly lost. Classy.
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: A fine game, everyone. It would be a pleasure to play with any of you again.
04 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Agreed. Thanks to everyone for speaking, as well, even if it didn't guarantee that you would *not* be destroyed.
05 Mar 11 UTC Good game everyone... This was my first time as Austria, definitely wouldn't mind getting them again...
05 Mar 11 UTC Austria is very nice when you survive the early trouble.
