  1. Yeah, it's funny to see not only TL but others on the NpO/TOP side suggesting that NPO is forcing its allies to continue the fight. I have no inside knowledge, but if NPO (or NSO) was my ally, I'd be going all out for them and wouldn't consider giving up until we both agreed upon an agreeable exit. Then again, propaganda is just that -- propaganda. I'm just never convinced that propaganda is all that useful in situations like this in CN. It seems that most everyone has either picked a side OR can look on at the events unfolding from a neutral, clear-headed standpoint, such as my AZTEC cohorts and other uninvolved entities (and as such are not swayed by pliable stats or unfounded assertions -- not that it'd matter even if they were because they're neutral and/or uninvolved). I suppose, though, there's always the hope of being able to render one's enemy dispirited to the point of wanting out at all costs.
  2. I like that bit about two separate turds in the same toilet.
  3. Alliances should cut all ties with foreign AAs. It worked well for VE(1). Le sigh. Loved VE(1). Anyway, this is the way people play. If we're talking realpolitik, the treaty-whoring method spreads out the risk. With the way power shifts around these parts, alliances consider themselves more secure if their position is more fluid. However, since we're all too deluded to speak plainly, I should mention that in CN people only sign treaties with friends, etc. Seriously, though, there's definitely a relationship component to this, as regards CN. That's why we see some like SF and DH that will stick together through thick and thin, as their bonds do run quite deep. Note: Depending on who you ask, DH may or may not have been through the thin part of the thick and thin. Heh.
  4. Heh, well, this blog surely hasn't seen its last cynical comment, but there are reasons that those of us still here keep coming back to login everyday (or once every 10 or 20 days). I'm sure it's the intra-alliance interaction for most of us or perhaps old friendships forged through diplomatic relations with other alliances. Then there are some that stick around to see a some wrong avenged, score evened, or grudge match won. Oh, yeah, and all the FA-types are here to inflate their egos... and the old super-tier high-tech nations cannot forsake their e-peens... Then there are those who login out of habit or perhaps some sleepwalkers who unwittingly sleep-play CN. And finally, the neutrals are here to defy logic.
  5. Hmm... the quote option is not working for me atm. @shelrich: Don't mention it. I love reminiscing about the old days, and some would say I do it too frequently. Anyway, thanks for sharing! @Baltus: Of course I remember you! Heh. Hope you're keeping well.
  6. Haha... Yeah, I thought about that, but - believe it or not - there are some expats working in China. And I work with some of them, too. ;-)
  7. I was too young to remember the fall of the Berlin Wall, although old enough to follow the 1996 US presidential election and remember with clarity the death of Princess Di.
  8. "Good news, everyone!" So, yeah, I'm sure some of you have attempted to recruit your friends and family... and often to your chagrin, no doubt. I actually tell most of my friends that I play, and among some of my friends it's become a sort of joke that I always try to make them play. I have had varying degrees of success, but nobody has stuck around for the long haul. My best friend from college moved to a different country and shortly discovered that I suck at keeping in touch with people. He signed up to communicate with me. He played for several months, perhaps almost a year. This has been quite some time ago... when I was at VE. Then a year or so later I had a girlfriend that I convinced to sell tech for awhile. She could never remember the steps (really bright, I know), and it got old telling her each link to click. She eventually deleted. Shocker. Most recently I got a colleague of mine in China to signup. He's Chinese. Anyway, we share the same network at work, and I somehow momentarily forgot that we wouldn't be able to aid each other. Anyway, I sent him some aid, as he's a tech seller, but later got a message/reminder that it's not OK. The message said I may be deleted, and I checked the forums for a place to beg forgiveness but found none. So, I thought I'd post this here. It seems there may be a 3-strike policy. I hope so. While I don't want to get banned/deleted, I'd be a lot more productive IRL if that happens, I think. So, if you're wondering, the "good news" is that we appear to have a 3-strike policy (fingers crossed), and barring that I will hopefully experience an uptick in my IRL productivity.
  9. Glad to see we China-dwellers made an appearance! Thanks for sharing.

    Tom Riddle: Why?

    I'd be sad to see him go, personally. We need all the entertainment value we can get around these parts. I mean, most of us are satiating our thirst for war at the moment, but once that's over what will we have? The way I see it, there is not enough commie drama or micro mishaps these days. Our world needs more Tom Riddles, not less. Ok, well, maybe one is enough.
  14. I like your posts. I thought I would come by and say "Hello!"
