  1. It took me a while, but despite going away/coming back a couple of times and taking part in various 'crusades' I just don't care anymore. Five+ years is quite enough time to have wasted here.
  2. And now I'm thinking about how much I miss living in New Mexico....
  3. I'm going to say this one more time in the hope that someone actually reads it. It does not matter how many times one has re-rolled. It does not matter how many times one has played. What matters is whether or not one joins an alliance that genuinely encourages growth. Also, please don't try your hand at neologisms by typing 'alot'. Every time you do that you shave days off of the life of anyone who has ever taught English.
  4. I'm going to assume you're not being serious, because if you really mean this then you're clueless. I've belonged to many alliances on different parts of the web over the years. Some are great at helping out new members. Others are terrible. Who their friends are is unimportant. Again, my situation within my alliance is not unique. It is something available to all members. Again....the speed of a nation's growth is directly related to an alliance's growth program(s) and members' participation in them. The same is true of the 'missing trades' argument used in the OP's reply to my initial
  5. I deny it. My (current) nation is eighteen months old and I have fourteen Wonders. If new players are unable to grow quickly and start buying Wonders a couple of months after signing up, they're in the wrong alliance.
  6. Had it since I was about four when, on a typical morning, my parents would awaken in the morning, discover that I was missing, and then see me riding up and down our street in my pyjamas. Last 'night' I nodded off around 0400. At 0715 I was up getting the kids' breakfast and packing lunches. Pretty normal night for me, really. The only time I sleep well is while I'm camping, which I'll be doing in a couple of weeks' time.
  7. A. It became the norm with respect to you when you made unintentionally hilarious statements like that in my sig and those above. B. And yes, you were being obtuse and, I should add, insulting with respect to your former allies in Ragnarok and their allies in Mj. Perhaps you will learn from this that tossing out accusations because they 'seem' right -- although if you read the entire discussion and possessed the reading comprehension of a fourth-grader, you would have known this was not the case -- merely makes you look like even more of a clown when you're shown to be 100% wrong. I do hope
  8. Mmmm, a fancily dressed up 'No U'. Purty. You really are quite obtuse.
  9. Oh, and.... Ok I know I'll just be called a "Xiph apologist" or w/e, but just being fair you guys did form a block with 3 NOIR alliances, a former SF member who Xiph probably feels like you stole from him, (especially considering according to some people the last straw was asking RoK to drop you guys and Polar) and Valhalla an alliance that has said several times they dislike Xiph and were known to be fairly angry over Xiph's troll incident (yea I would have been too). So if I was Xiph, I would have probably came to the same conclusion as well. Correlation is not causation. RoK and GOD/SF
  10. Oh wow. Haven't thought about that one in a very long time. Still don't know why that was deleted. I guess he sent an e-mail to Photobucket saying, "I'm crazy and say so in this forum post. but I don't want this guy to have it." Perhaps, but I'm not sure the lesson would 'take'. I have no problem keeping secrets, but the whole skullduggery thing is lost on me. Yes, yes they are.
  11. And then today someone send me these links, if only to prove how bad I am at this: http://i.imgur.com/B7Vq8.png]http://i.imgur.com/B7Vq8.png - "If any of this finds it's [sic] way around CN I will personally never put anything up on SF ever again...." Something tells me that this was an empty threat. http://i.imgur.com/qEVzg.png]http://i.imgur.com/qEVzg.png http://i.imgur.com/CPHVc.png]http://i.imgur.com/CPHVc.png http://i.imgur.com/rndLd.png]http://i.imgur.com/rndLd.png http://i.imgur.com/ThxC5.png - "It's my personal opinion [which I think will come to be validated in the coming year o
  12. I know. Alright, so how come everyone remembers this but me? /me looks at pill bottle of 'morning' meds "Side effects include a hopeless blurring of the years." Ah. 1. Predict who will 'abandon' you. 2. Do your best to alienate them. 3. When you are 'abandoned', say I told you so. Hmmm....there's something wrong with this model, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I do note, however that 4/9 of the alliances are Nordreich and close allies of Nordreich. I can't think of a single thing* Xiphosis has done to intentionally antagonize us since our reformation. You should probably
  13. I figured as much. Just wondering why I didn't notice that I had it until today. (btw....my curiosity got the better of me, so I made the arduous walk to my netbook. I've had this file since January of this year. Still no clue where I got it, though.)
  14. I have two computers. The first is my brand new PC that I built this year and am continuing to fine tune. The other is a netbook I picked up a couple of years ago. I have it for those occasions when the missus hijacks my desktop because she wants to do something 'graphics intensive' like harvest in Farmville. *sigh* Anyway.... The netbook came with WinXP, which I immediately removed and replaced with Ubuntu. I don't really store anything on it. It is solely for the purpose of connecting to the 'Net and doing a bit of surfing. So imagine my surprise when I opened my 'Documents' folder for th
