08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: hey! even the best of us are schitzo's now and then!
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: i have never seen a live game successfully started back up as a live game again. that's why i put the 48 hour timer on it.

however, i'm honestly not all that interested in continuing this as a 48 hour game :/ I have enough games going as it is - that's why I voted draw.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Soon as I speak. Lol.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: i kinda figured that was the point of a live game, u make it sound like staying until it ends is a crazy idea.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Ach!
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: well i finalized but im not finalizing again my moms home from bingo so she wants on
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: If there was a concede button, I would press it, friends, but there is not, so instead I must sleep.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: DAMNIT GUYS! KILL AUSTRIA ALREADY! THERE ARE THREE OF YOU THERE!
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: besides Austria you want to keep it going because of your great position
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, and England has already gone. A Draw's not happening tonight, folks.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: well, looks like we're done for tonight anyway. at least we have the next 48 hours to decide what we're going to do.

g'night everyone - thanks for the live game, it was fun!
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: france, im not really a fan of that tone... im not quite sure, but it sounds like u want me dead.
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: When Austria wins, I get a warm fuzzy inside. It's like a snowflake on a 4-leaf clover in the summertime...
08 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1904: what do you think ive been sayin but nope lets all ally with Austria thats a good idea
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: hehe sarcasm
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm serious!
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I just prefer it when I come in second, then...
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: if they wait to long to stab him all they get is a warm slap in the face from all his armies
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: yea its wTA by the way go ahead and get second give me some of the points you win......oh wait
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, live part's over chaps. I would draw as soon as England disbands his last army... Perhaps tomorrow.

It has been (mostly) fun. Jacob, I hope we get to play together again, and I am able to prove to you that I do not participate in the shady activities of jerk diplomacy players.
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm so sorry everybody about leaving. Girlfriends take priority over Internetting. I'll vote for whatever you want.
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: np pyro, with the benefit of a night's sleep I think perhaps I overreacted =)
08 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: No problem, Dunecat.

It's alright, Jacob, I understand :P
09 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: i dont suppose there is any chance of getting this back to live? say sometime tonight?
11 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: 48 hour phases take way too long, out of all my games, this "live" game is the slowest.
12 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: End this nonsense, end it now! I cannot bereeve I have a Chechnyan here, terring me when he wants to take a derivery!
12 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: well, you are england, but that sure didnt seem like english.
12 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0hk9vaqWUg&fmt=22
13 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: sorry about not finalizing. I'm at gencon this weekend and I can use the extra time. this way I don't have to ask for a pause so hopefully this is at least better than pausing the game!
18 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: "Oh damn." "What is it dog?" "I forgot it's mother's day." "Didn't get a gift for her." "Other plans got in the way. She'll be so disappointed." "Damn I forgot it too." "This could have been avoided." "What the hell are we gonna do?"
21 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: This game is a clusterfuck. I can't believe Jacob's held on this long--good job J!
21 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: oh that's just great - France can stay in the game just long enough to take my territory, but can't seem to stay in long enough to fight Austria....bs...
22 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: why would u wanna fight austria? i love that guy.
23 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: lol...and now i've nmr'd...what a dumb game :(
23 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: So, France and Italy, are we going to just let Austria win? OR are we going to work together to stop him??
23 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: Just so everyone's aware, I have a two day train ride beginning Tuesday morning. I'm not sure if I'll have internet access, but I don't really expect to. I don't want to pause, with all the bugs, so I'll risk missing a phase or two.

I MIGHT be able to use my phone, now that I think about it, but I've never used it for anything more than checking press, and it's nearly impossible to see the map. I'll do my best, and apologies for any inconvenience.
29 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol - this is so dumb...

pyro - this is a WTA game in case you forgot. take a look at floatinglakes' record and tell me that he's going to draw with you...
29 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol, true.
29 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: its always the guy who is on the verge of dying to try and make the stronger countries turn on each other. not sure how my record is evidence of me not drawing though. i have 7 draws, seems like it happens?
29 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: im just hoping for this game to move, longest 10 minute phase game of my life.
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: ooh, nice spin austria =)

i'm going to laugh if pyro listens to you when you claim victory over the corpse of your dead quivering alliance with him...
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: i like how you said "stronger countries". that's a pretty good one. there's only one strong country in this game :/
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: I feel kinda badly about this game :/

floating, just leave me at least one center when you win if you don't mind.
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: move into denmark and ill pass thru.
31 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry, everyone. It's been a very crazy few days, gearing up for college, seeing friends and family I haven't seen for the better part of a year, and doing some traveling around the state. Sorry to hold up the game.
03 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1908: only 4 people left in the game here, and i seriously doubt there is that much strategy going on right now with germany's possible moves. can we please finish this up? shouldnt take 48 hours per move.
07 Sep 09 UTC Spring, 1909: Apologies. I got to my college campus to discover that, while wireless is everywhere and free, the steps involved in obtaining the wireless was too complicated for my computer to handle, and I just got the problems fixed at the computer lab today, which is the first day it was open.

I know this is the second time... BUT the transition is now complete.
07 Sep 09 UTC did you ask france to withdraw his draw vote??

if you vote to draw i think France will vote as well.

I'd really like for this game to be over...
08 Sep 09 UTC well, if you guys actually all work together and submit moves, i am at the disadvantage. i cannot gain anymore up north, in fact, i would lose 2 points. and the south would eventually crumble since i cannot defend my seas forever.

very well, ill take the draw and end this "live" game that took forever.
09 Sep 09 UTC good game everyone!
