South China Sea: Chinese new island land reclamation
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35031313

Thoughts? What are the Chinese preparing for with all of this land reclamation and military expansion? Is this purely defensive? Or may this be leading to military action?

What's better:

Designed by (Company Name)
So should you name the person who designed it or the company for which the designer works?

Do they take away the superpowers when a Mighty Mod retires ?
Do Naughty Mods get defrocked like Naughty priests, that'd be sexy,
or do they get cashier'd like they are stood out in the middle of a parade ground and have their badges of office torn off etc ?

I wonder what the secret initiation rites are like ? And are they extremely painful ?
It's all perhaps one of the great magical mysterious spiritual wonderments of this brave new world, becoming Mighty Mod

Do they have ranks, like the angels, like do some become Archangels and are others more like your ordinary angels like a 'fore the mast Sailor chap ?

I've heard that the confirmation hearings to become a Supreme Court judge are a cakewalk compared to the examination procedures for becoming a Mighty Mod.
Apparently the Inquisitors, led by the Grand High Inquisitor subject the applicant to a fearsome questioning.
A chap might be asked, which of the seven nations in Classic Diplomacy has their favourite colour, and if a chap says "France, no England" he's thrown into the bottomless pit.
He must also know how to convoy an army through the the eye of a needle to capture the Promised Land.
Or explain the fabled Unwritten Rule and it's applications
The Inquisitors also question the applicant's moral character.
If they find out that when the chap was a young man he neglected his studies of the writings of Clausewitz, or Sun Tzu, or Liddell & Hart to gaze adoringly at a poster of Wonder Woman, or Barbara Eden in her I dream of Jeannie costume then it's the bottomless pit.
There's also the hen and a half question
If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, and your single hen lays eggs at the same rate, then how many eggs do you have at the end of a week ?
Of course all this is anecdotal and not corroborated, but I hear these whispered tales when I'm about and around, as I say 'tis all shrouded in mystery. As it should be.

It's also rumoured that there is some form of medical surgery where a prosthetic device that's a spin off from the six million dollar man project is embedded in successful applicants, and this is one source of a Mighty Mod's superpowers

I was born with my superpowers.
There are of course ranks among the mods. Ghug is at the very bottom, as is tradition
2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
20 Dec 15 UTC
We've actually done some shuffling in the past 24 hours since gold left. Everyone's mod rank has changed. Except ghug. He's still last. #fuckghug
MajorMitchell (1016 D)

2ndwhiteline is probably one of those Archangel type of Mighty Mods, and knows just how to convoy an army through the eye of a needle to capture the Promised Land when playing Ancient Mediterranean
MajorMitchell (1016 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
Of course that's something he cannot confirm or deny
It's an unknowable unknown to us mere mortals.
It appears that Ghug is a 'fore the mast type of Mighty Mod, probably press ganged out of some low dive full of iniquitous smugglers and gamblers found in gunboat games

"To think you both forgot Jmo. He'll be turning in his grave."

Outlasted means been there longer then, they both had a few months to go before making that claim :).

Thanks for all your years of cases Gold. Very few people will ever know all the time and effort you put into making sure the site tournaments ran as smoothly as they did. So on behalf of everyone who played in a tournament in the past few years, thank you!!!

Created a new webdiplomacy.net app for the smartphone

Its really simple, anytime you join a live gunboat, you set an alarm and it reminds you "hey dumbass you joined a gunboat". Then you play that gunboat from anywhere on this amazing thing called a web browser. It comes standard on most phones and its really cool.
I get live updates straight to my phone anytime on webdip by just refreshing the page. You can download this free app simply by going to www.webdiplomacy,net and logging in on your phone!

In the spirit of computer building advice...
What is the cheapest way for me to build a media server for myself? Should I just try buy second hand? I have a laptop that's currently running plex media server and I stream it to a Roku. However, it's super noisy and can't keep up with HD streams. Any suggestion for a student on a budget? The plex website suggests a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz as a minimum.

Evidence of life found on Mars.
I'm interested to know how people's opinions may (or may not) change in relation to the Earth's creation and the nature of life Earth, if we find evidence of life on other planets, such as the current investigations on Mars.

For those with belief in God, will evidence of life on other planets change your views in any way? And what would the increased implication of other complex life in the universe mean for you?
