again, I find the delays so much more tolerable now that I am waiting for the sword of domocles(spelling?) to fall on my neck...

Sorry for the stale last turn, I can't tell time.

I should be able to get my next turn in this evening. After that, I'll be out of town this weekend and won't be able to get another turn in until Sunday evening.

On a side note, I'm finding myself very busy and unable to complete turns in the 3 games I have going. If no one objects, I would like to find a sub to fill in my position for me. Perhaps one of the players eliminated earlier would like to hop back in?

I didnt see you stale...
I thought you made it.

I understand life can be busy. A sub would be nicer than going AI.
I'll delay the turn timer.

Man.. I did it twice in a row!  Good thing I'm just a peaceful corpse farmer!

After all the past extensions, it seems to pass by so quickly now that it's on a 2-day timer again.  I forgot to check in time.

Err.. we might be having a problem here.
The new turn was due this afternoon, but it didn't send in one. Some of us need to still send in their turn.
The duedate has been passed according to the time shown for the next push... why it didnt send something is anyone's guess...
Or did you pause hosting, Jason?

ANyway I'll delay a bit more to make sure we dont stale.

EDIT: Llama seems to have taken a dump. I dont even get my confirmation email after submitting the turn and the delay order does not seem to register... :S

Hm. No, it wasn't me; I don't even know how to pause hosting! (That would be handy for long vacation periods like we're currently having.)

im getting a few messages from llama now.

apparently the turn hosted without my turn, as it says '2h out of order, turn sent was for turn 50, we are now on turn 51'

may happen to a few of us

Happened to me as well. Proper Llama spam here!

Yeah the system keeps spamming me as well...
I reckon we give it 24 more hours, then force a rehost and see what happens. Perhaps Llama is still busy?
No sure why it keeps on sending out those messages.

if you just request turn resend, you'll get your turn and the spam will stop(at least, it did for me)

may have to delay until everyone gets this sorted out.

do we still need a new midguard player or is the byrd back in?

Hrmm.. I've received nothing in awhile.  Not even the latest.  I suppose at least one turn was missed.

My concerns about a game update in the middle of a PBEM may have been warranted.  Or Murphy just shows up when alluded to.
