We've got a shot at some solid clock movement here, but I don't want to jump tooooo fast in case someone is sunning them self this weekend.

I will definitely roll clock this evening, though...

I will advance the clock again tomorrow evening.

Three hours until dusk, four until full dark.

S!

Never let it be said you fellows don't make things interesting.

As you may or may not know, Doug and I have both transferred our umpiring to the Table Top Simulator on PC.  It's a real delight to work with and has made it possible to "live" track each messenger.  I sort of knew this to be the case, but MAN, you guys have put a lot of dudes a-horse...

Weird, I'm subscribed to this thread but haven't got any notifications. Even checked my spam folder. Maybe this post will kick it into gear..

I went through a period of more than a year when the forum engine seemed to pass along notifications at rare random intervals; and sometimes it would then mass-post a bunch of them in catchup. And some never at all.  :pullhair:

From my perspective things are doing better this year.

Well, yay! I knew Doug was doing that, but hadn't heard of you switching over, too.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DAAAALEKKKKSSS?!

He started it, actually. I was fairly skeptical about TTS but it's proved to be the best way to do this. I think the Daleks have been sent to the shelter for adoption.

I will assuredly miss the Daleks.

That said, realizing how rough-hewn my sender-->recipient calculations were relative to doing them "live" makes it worthwhile.

Videos end up a bit ded secksai too...

I had no problems with the last Kriegspiel but this thread's notifications are patchy at best.

And now the hour of fatigue calculation commences.

Messages will, of course, be delivered throughout the evening as appropriate, but please give thought to your morning march orders.

This is ESPECIALLY true for those who arrive on the Field of Honor on the 17th.
