Haven't missed one yet.  It's interesting to watch someone brain dump.  Especially if it's coherent and has a point.

This is what I am completely devoted to for the rest of my gaming time. I'm working on building a structure to bring in folks to the hobby through promotion of conflict games (which covers more area than many might think) and will be announcing as each part is finalized. This is what has sucked up all my time over the last 6 months (and kept me from posting as often here as I would like).

And 1? Just 1? I'm going after a whole demographic (currently numbered around 80 million). Go big or go home! :)
"I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."  - Frank Herbert

Logistics & The Walking Dead in today's Tracer Rounds

Amateurs talk tactics, professionals talk logistics  :)

I'll admit to being fascinated by military logistics. How, say, the Army of the Patomac was fed, clothed, supplied, and watered during the overland campaign is just plain interesting.
