  1. Oook!

    KaS, I know the thread-jack is a time honored tradition in TWP, but if you wish, I will split the bickering out of the thread that should be to welcome you back. Say the word, my friend.
  2. Sending chocolate cake with best wishes, Darkesia <3

  3. Oook!

    omgomgomg! KaS! OOK! It's great to see you. And that little KaS looks to be 50% beauty and 51% trouble. Congratulations!
  4. Glutton for Punishment

    So, I've started the process of studying to become an Enrolled Agent. https://www.irs.gov/tax-professionals/enrolled-agents Why? My Job is dull? My neurosis about always being in school? My compulsive need to collect certifications? Tired of not getting my tax questions answered coherently? I'm insane? Yes.

    What kind of Minister? Foreign Affairs? Methodist? (Never mind, I found it.) Edit: For future reference, please specify the masking you are requesting. I don't want to have to dig through all the threads to figure it out.

    See what happens when you hurt your back over the weekend? Other people do the stuff you said you would do! If it wasn't so damned painful, I would do it more often. Thanks to both of you gentlemen for doing the work on it.

    If you can wait until tonight, I will have time to grab the list and go through the masking the old fashioned way to fix it.
  9. The Silence is deafening

    No Questions? Rants? Either I did a pretty good job explaining my point of view, or it's complete gibberish and people are off finding me a nice padded room in which to recover my wits.

    I have stuffs to say. But it is staff meeting day IRL, so I'm going to give it the short version and hope it's not terribly misread. Any clarification that might be needed, please please ask me anything and I will do my best to speak coherently about it. I am speaking as a former Guardian and a Former Delegate (x2). If you have read Ivan's post in the forum, my yammering is the result of my thinking about his post. First: Ivan, you did not fail. Stop saying that. I get that you are tired. But that's probably because you drove this game and a few others for several years. That is not failure, it is success. But you are correct in observing that some of the old paradigms have returned. And... That is precisely what we have all been whining and pining about for years. Those of us that remember the battle (and the dozens of proxy wars) between the ADN and the NPO, have been longing for the days of politicized use of a region's military. Ivan and the NPO, won that war. Partially because of attrition, but mostly because they adapted to the changing world of NS. But once the war was won, the age of bored military action came. I have long missed the times when intrigue and intelligence (in both senses of the word) were part of the game. Things seem to be heading back in that direction. And frankly, I'm happy about it. Yes, there are alignments happening in TWP, and in many other GCRs. They may, or may not be alignments with which we are all happy. But isn't that just the sort of conflict that existed ten years ago? Rather than longing for the old days, we can pick a side (or make our own) and join in the new conflicts. Everything old is new again. Finally, to our beloved TWP and her current leaders: I do not care what alignment the regional leadership chooses, provided the strength, sovereignty and vitality of this region comes first. ALWAYS. Time to grab coffee before the meeting. I will check back later to see if I made any sense at all. lol

    It appears you are already masked as an Ambassador. Are you having trouble accessing the necessary forums? I see your badge is broken as well. That is not something I can fix in a short amount of time. It must be the hosting problem we have seen lately. It's on my list, just not at the top of that list right now.
  12. Vacation is addicting.  I need another one.

      You are absolutely correct!  I could get use to a full time vacation and occasional work instead of the opposite.

    Done... I think. Hopefully I didn't cause the collapse of civilization or something.

    Hey, Ivan! How the heck have you been? *steals a carrot and dips it in chocolate*
