    Yeah, I got the one with jsut the text, but not the one with the attachments. I'll try to fix this later, but I have to catch the bus in 5 minutes. Sorry for the delay... :(

    Very impressed by America, the pioneers of ARPA Net, the inventors of emails and the smiley, then WWW and now Demogame, and PbEMs. I wonder when you figure out your emails.

    Okay I just got a forward from donovan, even though it was sent 7 hours ago... I think hotmail has too loaded of servers, so it take sawhile for you to actually get the email in your inbox.... I will play it first thing tomorrow after school....

    I agree with MOTH. Watching this PBEM unfold would certainly be fun if the players postded mini-summaries. Not that the email confusion hasn't been entertaining. :rolleyes:

    The email delays are pretty weird, I've never seen that kind of response time under normal circumstances. It makes memories of DARPAnet, SciNet, and UUNet look pretty good -- at least then you knew that hitting "send" meant the recipient would (usually) get the message. ;) Heck, even CompuServe was pretty reliable.

    Once we get past all the startup problems of spam filters, attachment blocks, and other technical glitches, it should run smoothly, at least for the email part. Then we'll only have to deal with all our RL schedules :crazyeye:.

    I tried to suggest alternating US and Other so that we'd be looking at ~12 hour gaps until the next player's available time instead of 24 hours or more, without success.

    Played and sent. It looks like some bands of settlers may be taking extended walks.

    Provolutia Auropolis was settled on the hill overlooking the frothing waves of the Prolific, the 10 000 city dwellers of this ideal city state realized they were rich beyond imagination for their time. They could also see bountiful grasslands, other major hills, forests and a distant Northern Mountain. Provolutia Auropolis even introduced some new herb, they began to smoke with rolled leaves. In gilded urban environments, with the fresh sea breeze from the East and with a smoke, can you really complain ?

    Provo, this time I really didn't receive the game yet. It's neither in my inbox or in my junk folder. Maybe it's a good idea to send the game to gertjanlindeboom@tiscali.nl
