    The Provolutions saw the glimmering light on the Eastern Hill, when the divine voice of the great father said... "This is the golden opportunity, Provolutians, well protected on that hill, with piles of gold within the city, in the far south of the world, the future is open for all of us. I also heard word that The City of Zoi and the City of Gondolin are the first cities of the world, and they are now the cradles of civiization. We do not know where they are, but they sure sound tempting to a hungry elefant".

    I bring in a quote courtesy former US president Lyndon B Johnson about the Elephant

    "*Delete* your Parliament and your Constitution. America is an elephant. Cyprus is a flea. If these two fleas continue itching the elephant, they may just get whacked by the elephant's trunk, whacked good.... We pay a lot of good American dollars to the Greeks, Mr. Ambassador. If your Prime Minister gives me talk about Democracy, Parliament and Constitutions, he, his Parliament and his Constitution may not last very long."

    For non US Citizens, Elephant is the symbol of the US Republican Party... think...

    No, Lyndon B Johnson was a "Dixie Democrat" and came to the power with the assassination of Kennedy- However, the Democrats are not elephants...so...
    curious he chose that metaphor for American excpetionalism and supremacy to the small and dirty greeks.

    Nice story Provo :rolleyes:
    However, I didn't receive the save; which seems to be completely coherent to all mail problems.

    My mail-address is gertjanl@msn.com
    Note that the '-' from my CFC nick is not in my @msn.com address.

    Well, it is your sides fault gert, as I sent it twice now with receipts.
    But again, I do not know what is wrong on your side.
    Check if something enterered junkmail or spam on your filter, or you deleted it by mistake.

    I must admit :blush: that your first message was moved to my spam-folder. For some strange reason the second message did land in my inbox.

    Sorry for the delay! The game will be send to blackheart!

    I know, I just didn't notice that provo's mail was in my junk-mailfolder.

    @Hotmail=@msn
    In the future there shouldn't be any problems anymore

    gps (game played and sent)

    Saigon has been founded! Hail to the glorious Federated Suns! Hail to God Emperor BlackHeart!

    The city location is both a blessing and a curse. Plenty of luxuries around (possible monopoly) but the terran is not the best.

    Some email systems don't like receiving attachments. I can't remember if AOL is one of those, but just in case it is, I sent you two emails, one with an attachment and one without. You can ignore the attachment, it is just a save from one of my personal games, for testing purposes.

    If this turns out to be the problem we can dig into what needs to be done to let you receive attachments.

    Update: Got this back from AOL:

    Sorry dshack85705@netscape.net. Your mail to the following recipients could not be delivered because they are not accepting mail with attachments or embedded images:
