1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    this guy is a really good guy, if you ever want to come up to Chicago and have lunch with him and pick his brains, let me know. he seems to feel that the more micro-distilitrieas there are, the better.

    My grandfather was a conductor, engineer, and supervisor for the Southern Pacific. Though it might be a drop in pay, working the railways can be very rewarding.

    But you probably would not have been famous.

    I never understood not going to class and "dicking around." Schools cost a lot of money. I didn't want to miss anything, and I sure as heck didn't want to get C's or worse. Sometimes, people can be idiots. Laziness can make a failure out of anyone.

    Pretty easy problems to avoid.

    1) Give your resources away to the highest bidder, and don't do anything stupid to jeopardize that.
    2) Have a bigger, stronger army then the Rebels.
    3) Don't kill unarmed protesters on camera.

    Kind of wishing I just did infantry . Would be operational already and I'd see more action. TRADOC sucks balls.

    Maybe...but it's pretty hard for a 3rd world tyrants to have a bigger, stronger army than the United States (or to resist slaughtering unarmed protestors).

    If you don't jeopardize resource production, shouldn't have any problems from the US military. Just have to be bigger then the Rebels. As for the protesters .. just gotta make sure it's done off camera. Most people have a hard time getting all worked up about what's written .. video evidence on the other hand gets lots of the lefty's panties in a bunch.

    I'm going to guess that they usually don't plan for the brutalization to be camera, but there's always a camera (-phone), and in these globalized times, every national skirmish jeopardizes resource collection.
