csills2313: Still having miserable weather here. Nov 14, 2018 22:56:35 GMT

csills2313: Hello guys. Still raining here. Looks like the rain will be clearing out to night sometime. Nov 14, 2018 18:18:09 GMT
nerdthenord: Really tired right now. The cold has drained me, as well as not eating much of anything for a week. I was too sick to have much of an appetite. That’s also probably why I was a bit grumpy and cross the last few days. Nov 14, 2018 0:33:46 GMT
csills2313: Received my 9620 Spring Steel Katana today. Very beautiful sword. I need to get cracking on doing some reviews as soon as the weather clears up!! Nov 13, 2018 18:58:20 GMT

ouroboros: heh, niiiice, I've got my laptop loaded with Master of Orion 2, Galactic Civilizations 2 and 3 plus a host of little annoying puzzle games for the recovery phase. If I can find the last disk of M.O.O. 3, I'll load that on too :) Nov 13, 2018 15:23:46 GMT
nerdthenord: I will unite all the Slavic peoples, reform Slavic paganism into an organized church, and crush the power of Rome and Mecca! Nov 13, 2018 15:23:26 GMT
nerdthenord: Day is great. Just about over the bronchitis. In 30 minutes I will be a polish Slavic lord in 769 AD. The next huge DLC for Crusader Kings 2 comes out then. Nov 13, 2018 15:22:07 GMT
nerdthenord: Or is it hundreds? IDK. Precise geography was never my specialty lol. Nov 13, 2018 15:21:01 GMT
