12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: To the other great nations of the world. I apologize for the recent communications failures. We were celebrating the Kaiser's Birthday (February 10) and had too much strong German Beer.
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: I logged on this morning and found that Austria had been muted. I don't think I did that. Bug? Sorry Austria. Fixed.
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: what is that "mute" button? I think I may have pressed it, in a paranoid way, worrying that this activated/deactivated a microphone. I just "unmuted"
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: If people r ready, why not finalize moves?
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Because people ain't ready. Negotiating often goes until the last few minutes.
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Particularly on the first turn!
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Germany, for example, is so deep into negotiations that he dropped the standard in game message tool and has instead spent the last 15 hours developing a telepathic communication system.

So far, results are... mixed.
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: lol
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: no, Austria is right - we're still negotiating our division of the Balkans.
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Very funny, Sandor!
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: many decisions of peace and war have been made while hung over
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Kaiser willy was always known for his sober decision making
12 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Likely a nefarious plan of some sort.
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Operation Barbarossa gets a 40 year head start!!
13 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: "Operation Barbarossa was the largest military operation in human history in both manpower and casualties. Its failure was a turning point in the Third Reich's fortunes. Most importantly, Operation Barbarossa opened up the Eastern Front, to which more forces were committed than in any other theater of war in world history."
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: This seems very, very appropriate right now:

14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: yes, if sexism is appropriate. time to bring some culture to the continent...
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Has anyone been in a game where all the neutrals are snapped up
In 1901?
14 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I can't recall. The ones most likely to remain neutral after Fall 01 are Gre and either Bel or Hol (not both), right?
15 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: sorry to be the last in - had a lot of messages to catch up on.
16 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Ah, thus the Sandor stab-a-thon begins
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: sorry all! I was working off a PDA and didn't see that I hadn't hit "ready".
19 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Just waiting for Germany to build ...
20 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Just waiting for Germany to finalize ...
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: what a turn for overly-complicated convoys!
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: And paratroops
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: I, for one, would like to welcome my new French overlords.
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: ... and gg
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: good game.
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: England played well.
24 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: ... but picked his allies poorly
25 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: we shall raise a statue to our comrade england in red square for his valiant sacrifice for the motherland!
27 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1904: anyone else ready to go green?
27 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1904: No.
04 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: looks like it is france's game to win, folks!
04 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oh, I don't know. Looks to me that Germany is about to get a bunch of Russian SCs.
04 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Also, I'd like to provide a gentle reminder that 2 turns ago it looked like the juggernaut of Russia and Turkey was going to roll the board.
09 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Well. I should have seen that coming.
09 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Wow.
09 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1906: That was well played. Epic.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Looks like we have what should be an automatic disband holding us up.
16 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Again, we have another automatic disband holding us up. Germany, can you finalize?
