You'll Never Walk Alone on a FRIDAY
« on: March 20, 2020, 07:49:59 AM »


Radio stations across Europe created a heartwarming show of unity on Friday, playing football anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in a bid to boost listener morale as millions of people have been forced to forgo their usual routines and social lives to abide by social distancing rules.

    The 1963 Gerry and the Pacemakers hit was played out across European radio stations at 7:45 a.m. U.K. time/8:45 C.E.T
    Breakfast shows across the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Bulgaria, Finland, Bosnia, Denmark, Cyprus, France, Latvia, Ireland, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Turkey, and Slovakia.
    The idea was prompted by a Dutch radio show host who wanted to demonstrate how the crisis “brings people together” said Britain’s Radio 2 breakfast show host, Zoe Ball.
    “We want everyone to know that whatever they’re going through, they’re not alone,” Ball said.



Not much gaming but maybe some Battlestar Galactica.

If given time (hah!), will set up new HOTAS and pedal system and fly me some planes (and helicopters)!  Otherwise, yard work methinks.

I'm finishing up the 1939-1940 Germany Campaign by Erik (modder) for Order of Battle WW2.  Very long campaign and some of the scenarios are tough.  It has been excellent!

As usual, more of The Division 2 on the PS4.  Also, I may try to push some counters around and get Mark Herman's Waterloo Campaign 1815 back on the table again. I like the simple, but elegant system. His other game with the same game system, Gettysburg, is a blast to play.

Stay safe and good gaming, Grogs!

Stellaris with the new Verne update - seeing how things go. I haven't had a contact with any AI races yet.

Panzer Corps 2 General Edition BABY! - got it with my Anniversary Coupon (it was time to use it)

but I work on Sunday  :uglystupid2: Yeah, the "joy" of retail.   

Good luck on Deathrace 2020: The Fight For Toilet Paper Sir Slash.  :DD

Playing the Witcher 1 as it seems fitting with a semi-quarantine theme.

Have started a new Stellaris campaign in 2.1.3 with several mods installed.  I'm only about 25 years in, but I'd say it's definitely an improved my experience so far. 

Wanting to get back into Rome II as well, but I'm first reading up more on the DEI mod so that I have some idea of the changes made. 




Mostly the same as last week...buggy old Stellaris and Napoleon Total War...

I take it the 2.6 update didn't fix that sector display bug you've been dealing with?
