Right, so this games is finally available on my side of the atlantic

BUT when I try connecting to the master server to find a nice newbie friendly game, nothing.

So the question is: Is the master server b0rked right now or has something gone wrong with my computer ?

Thanks

Thanks

So I guess the obvious follow up is: Can anyone suggest a good server IP address I should try ?

Nope, but I can ask the other obvious question...

They've got it in the U.K., so WHEN are we getting it here in the colonies???

You have TM 1.5? It really doesn't matter, as there's probably no 1.5 servers running yet...

In retrospect, I guess we should take this as a positive sign, presuming he does have 1.5. At least it's shipping! :-)

if you're trying to get me to post something to follow up your posts on the evil slow retailer stocks... i'm all for it

Why not assemble in front of an EB that doesn't have it and keep saying to the sales clerk," Is Tread Marks version 1.5 here yet?" every 15 or so minutes and slowly progress to 1 minute intervals before they close, and if police come in, we'll threaten to give the EB's address to M$ as a potential Whistler customer, heheheheheh, WE'VE GOT THEM NOW!!!

but wouldn't that be to terrible, i could see These people outside auditing our mail and phone calls then, and the e-mail too, just so that we wouldn't act on our threat even after the police say they won't arrest us, AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
oh sorry *starts looking for Root Beer to calm evil demented thoughts of torture*

don't you think that the pin in this: is too large? I mean that is too much metal just to stick up a little gif paper...
Also, look at this:
wow... that's a disturbingly large pen, i hope that you don't make us edit with that large a pen, and it's out of style, can you get some pens with heat sensitive holographic graphics on their sides, thanks.

of course, it's taken that the paper is drawn to scale as a regular printer size 11 inch by 8.5 inch piece of paper with all of its accessories to scale with it... am i right?
well, in either case, that pen is too cheap, if you really care about your posters, LDA, you'll provide a pen that ACTUALLY looks mightier than a sword. thanks

What could one possibly say against Notepad? After all, it's about the only stable part of Windoze - except for the bluescreens.

It can't handle big files.
It borks on files that don't have BOTH a CR and LR at the end of every line.
It borks binary files.

That's just for starters...
