New Recruit, Arrival Times

I have a potential new member. A guy my wife works with is really into project Gipf, and I think we might be able to convert him to euros eventually. I'm meeting up with him to play Gipf on Mon. He and I both know where DL is and neither is quite sure where the new place is, so we're meeting at DL this time. Since we're both working stiffs, we're meeting at 7.

FWIW, I emailed my cell # to some folks. It's a work phone, and I normally put it far, far away when I'm at home, but on game nights I'll try to remember to have it handy.

As keeper of the brownie points, I award myself 500. If you think this is an abuse of power of my somehow "corrupted" office, come forward and speak.

You will be automatically deducted two thousand brownie points for doing so.

Thank you and good day.

England prevails!

MMMmmm, brownies....

Wow, its been a while since we've seen a good old fashioned rant around here.

Speaking of rants, can we get rid of this word verification BS. No one outside our blog has commented in months. It's a total pain in the ass everytime.

I'm cringing as I go to finalize this message right now.

I just turned off word verification...

If we don't get spam, I'm sure there will be much rejoicing at not having to do verification.

If we do get spam-bombed, we'll all have fun blaming Simon!

I was thinking more along the lines of allowing only contributors comments like the olden days.

Well, my proposal has garnered zero serious comments. If the masses don't think we have a problem, then by definition we don't have a problem. I'd prefer to have "too few" rules and a little more confusion than "too many" rules. I deal with enough red tape at work that I don't want to tangle my hobbies up, too.

Sorry, Simon, but it looks like you don't get to keep the brownie points after all.

Our current system of posting rough outlines and ETAs combined with judicious phone calls has the enormous advantage of simplicity.

You don't decide what happens to the brownie points! They're all mine! ALL MINE!!!

Ready my Jet, Tattoo!

Dear Simon,

Are you smoking something? Or did you priboch?

Yours truly,
Jeff

Sorry, Ted. I thought your whole post was meant as a joke. :) I wasn't there the night that you were shunned, so I apologize if my comments seemed insensitive.

I'll change the blog posting back to members only....

Ted, I thought you were kidding too with all the rules. Yep, nothing like a good cel phone to clear things up. My 2 cents.

Jeff, I think he had some of the magic brownies.
