September 10, 1806

Waiting for a few pieces to advance the turn and call for new orders for those that need them.

Gentlemen,

I have already received a number of 0600, September 11 dispatches and orders.  This is excellent.

Being ambitious, may I ask that all others submit their orders by the end of the day on WEDNESDAY?

On a note, placing a Sender, Recipient, and Date/Time Sent into an e-mails subject line has proven very helpful.  Much to learn when not doing this face-to-face.

Salute!

Almost all orders are in and then I'll run the clock.  I'd like to this evening.

Administrative Note:  I should have asked about this 100 years ago (given even the title of our little endeavor), but I just noticed in the errata to VdA III (yes it took that long) that the scenario actually begins on OCTOBER 10, not September.

I will correct in all future communications.

...yes, I was trying to figure out why the clock was September instead of (appropriately) October, but honestly I was just glad to settle on a plan and start moving.

Wheee.... wait a minute...  :o

Invading Moscow in October is a fool's errand and something I would never, ever, ever do. Ever.  >:D

Yep. You  will be busier earlier than expected.
Apparently, you have gathered an agressive lot of generals.

Thanks for your work.

Ummmm....should we have received updates and/or be sending new orders in?

Never mind... I understand now...  :P

Just to keep everyone up to date, I'm waiting on a dispatch from a commander struggling with a bit of that dirty real life difficulty.

I hope for more very soon.

Yeah, sorry about that, one of my kids had to go to hospital with a chest infection. All good now though.  O0 Orders have been sent to Jim.
