      Went badly off the site with the fanboyish treatment of early Civ 5, where any post critical of the game was heavily censored and hidden, while any post defending it, even if it broke the forum rules (there was one where a lot of people were throwing false accusations at Sullla over his reviews of the game) was kept, if not promoted.

      The way the site wen't from an independent fan site to a shill for 2K left a bad taste in my mouth. I decamped to realms beyond.

      Wait, damn, you're right. Embuggrances upon embuggrances!

      Hah, I've had the good fortune of genuinely believing in New Labour since I started voting, but most people I know do indeed vote for "least worst"... Thing is, even if we had PR, I'd still vote Labour over a hypothetical 3rd party that more accurately represented my views, if voting Labour had a strong chance of keeping the Tories out. Then again, there's more chance that 3rd parties would be able to hold the balance of power in PR via coalitions than in FPTP, so maybe I'd be more inclined to vote for one... So yeah, I'd call it an artefact of FPTP. If only we hadn't rejected AV, then I wouldn't mind throwing a vote behind a 3rd party if I knew that my 2nd choice would be activated when it came to the finish line...

      It's really wet and dark Arakhor. I want to move south for the winter.

      HUD Color Utility. There was a version included with old versions of C2C, but it's not in the C2C versions I have (I stopped updating around Jan 2013). Once you use it, it alters your colors for all of Civ4. I think this is the latest version: http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=17360.

      Oh! Thanks for telling me!

      It should, although it is a rare surname. Even the Byz emperors changed their names so as to not have the same term as the one used as a name of god (eg the various Manuels were originally Emmanuels, but that seems to refer to god).
    13. Kyriakos
      Kyriakos
      It literally means belonging/related to god. For example Sunday, the day of the lord, is called Kyriake here. Dominikos Theotokopoulos, the painter (the so-called 'El Greco') had the same name, but in the latin version.
    14. Kyriakos
      Kyriakos
      'Of the Lord', ie 'Lordian'. It is the same term used for the popular orthodox monk name, although the latter is highlighted at 'o' while my name is at 'a' cause i am the alpha and the omega ;)

      Yeah, I could figure that one, I just wasnt sure if some other meaning was meant to be conveyed in the rest of the sentence. :lol:

      Is there a pun involved or something? I feel I'm missing some meaning...

      I find him a truly interesting character. Also, a bit underrated in terms of the attention he gets. Ask people to name a Medieval monarch, and chances are huge it is an English King like Edward Longshanks, if they even get that far.
