    I played the dutch turn and sent it forward to Academia.

    If people send me their email addresses, I will set up a gmail based tracker. The gmail tracker works via auto-forwarding. Each player will have to accept a request from the gmail account to accept forwarded emails ... then everyone sends the turn to this one gmail account and it takes care of the forwarding.

    You can also have a tracker page ... here is an example ... http://www.ruffhi.com/php/tracker_v6.php?game=pbemEarth1000

    So ... you know where the game is and who to NAG!

    Update on (missing!) email addresses ...

    grogburg - need email address
    Alvarez - need email address

    Do any of the other players (hint hint) have an email address for the above?

    I have all of the emails. Waiting on Alvarez to accept the gmail forwarding. Once that is done, I will set up the final 'forward rule' and then update the web site.

    For future reference ... all emails with the game save should be sent to pbem.FractalRock@gmail.com ... this will forward the game to the right player and the php web site can read that inbox to see what is what.

    Looks like the tracker is working. Grog just sent it to Armor directly and via the tracker (not absolutely required - the direct sent part) but suggest we monitor closely for the first round to test that I have the forwarding rules set up correctly.

    I shook off the rust and played my turn, and sent to Tracker. ricketyclik - Let us know if you didn't get the file.

    Unless I missed something, I think I only got the direct send version from grogburg this time. Will double-check next turn to make sure I get the Tracker version as well.

    hmm ... not sure why the tracker didn't update. I got the save from the tracker and just sent it back to the tracker gmail account. Tracker web page updated.

    I will take a look at the tracker code to see why it hates ricketyclik.
