As a reminder, since it's going to happen soon: the old Alpine Challenge game can just be surrendered when it finally cycles up in about an hour. (Ysk could play his turn and cycle it sooner, but he signed into the new one already).

PBEM+++ (or whatever it's called) doesn't track win/loss records, I think, and I'll be the first to surrender anyway.  O:-)

Again, anyone who wants to keep playing it is definitely welcome to do so! -- those who don't should surrender out asap so that the game won't be delayed much more for anyone who wants to keep playing it.
Regarding Shoho, you can see the bridge here, under the flight deck. That's not the kind of carrier where anybody on the bridge would end up with a suntan by mistake, that's for sure...

Yep, what I thought; just didn't have a good angle on the prior model snapshots.

I know they're clunky as all hell, but I reaaallly like the ad-hoc innovation of these types of carriers.  :smitten:

I think for the money this is doable. Save up for a gfx update first I suppose?

A nicely sculpted gaming mouse can be a good inexpensive update, too. I love my Redragon, most cost-effective thing I've ever bought -- for around $20! They have much more expensive ones, but this had everything I would ever feasibly use, with comfortable operation being paramount. (One slight drawback is that the mousewheel has a rubber coating, which is good for some things but doesn't always provide the more precise movements, and the wheel itself has only like 10 notches. Not a dealbreaker for me, but I do notice sometimes, and being picky and precise I wanted to be fair about even a small drawback.)

I know in the past, Windows Pro was more necessary to run better hardware. My impression is that this is no longer true? -- and so you can get away with the slightly less expensive Home edition now? But since that used to be a thing, I wanted to check about double-checking on that (so to speak).

I feel like I'm getting close to actually ordering a PC.  Still feel like Ibuypower is my best choice for ~$1100.  Here's what I can get for $$1147 (including a case).  Prices/freebies/etc seem to fluctuate day-to-day, so I'm not sure the Christmas season is the best time to buy a new rig, but I'm more than ready.  I tried to stick with name brands I recognized/researched as I hope this rig will last me many years and will be somewhat upgradeable.
