a) The BWL has acquired a new member: Welcome, Weatherman!
b) Peeeto and I are currently working on a BWL page. It's still under construction, but some stuff already works and some is going to in the near future - our forum is online and appears stable, a news system is going to follow this weekend.

Thanks, Dreamer. Looking forward to some epic clan battles . Plus I think BWL is a bunch of great people, players, and TM contributers.

Some other news on the ole Weatherman:
1. I am moving this weekend so I shall be pretty scarce.
2. I am loosing my precioius cable modem in the move . Go easy on WM during his adjustment period to a dialup! * hears drooling and lip smaking in the distance * :P
3. With that, my webpage will now be hosted at http://www.che.utexas.edu/~johnsan/ I am not sure if my old isp will be nice and forward or not.....
4. I am still at UT, so the race and demo servers will not be interrupted.

EDIT: 5. I have installed the DNX flag pack on both servers - So I will stop popping in to ask players to switch flags . BTW, you should get the pack if you don't already have it. Watch installation.exe in the pack - it is funny and it convenitenly backsup all of your passwords and creditcard information to Rixy's email account JK - it is funny, though
I hope to be back in the swing of things next week.

Thanks Swisher! I just installed Entegrety - very cool! 1 Q, do you think you could have it wipe modders butts, too? I say this because that prog does just about everything else That must have taken a huge amount of time!

Yeah - Texas A&M is our rival school - football anyway. They are ~100 miles away. they are the Aggies (animal lovers) and a lot of the students have a military affiliation. The are the ones that had the bonfire incident - no jokes about that one, tho.

Guys, don't get this wrong.
I am advertising the gamespot TM sale on www.treadmarks.de - I aim at broadening the european player base over time - noone has seen TM in any store over here and to be able to get it for less than USD25 is a dream.

*sighs* Well, do what you think is right. One school of thought is that players now will be buyers of later versions and possibly other LDA products. This is one of those things where I think it is great for getting more players but I hope that if new people can afford it, they would buy from digital river.

Well, the good news is that the "problem" is limited. GS wrote me back:
---------------------------------------------
We do carry the game Tread Marks for PC. However, we only have 155 copies in
stock at this time, and the product has been delisted.
--------------------------------------------
Another strange item is that by my calculations and from what Jim has told me, that means that about 2800 + copies have already been sold. Were these people afraid of online!?!?!?!

EDIT: Thanks Paranor, I will try to be strong . Supe, you are so on, matey ! I can't speak for the other BWL members, but I am up for it. It is time for BWL to decloak - Swisher needs to recover from writing ENTegrety and Dreamer has got some free time on his hands now .

Well sorry Dreamer,my US/German time watch broke I guess that would put you bright and early in the morning.I don't get home from work till around then so to do it earlier would be impossible for me.Ok Dreamer,you set the time and anybody that can make it can show up.I know its impossible to please everybody.We'll let you pick the time since you are at an extreme compared to the other players.

BTW, i would love to participate in an organized clan war... not this week or weekend, but maybe one evening next week between 5:30pm and 8:00pm (week-day)?
