    I do have a life outside bashing Dems, though I am a radical.

    It wasn't a real assumption, it was a JOKE.

    I still hold that it's just not funny. I will now back down and stop arguing about politics. like Arya said, it's not a good mix

    Julius says(IC): "this is all irrelevant and pointless. the japs keep advancing, and I'm ready to meet them, make them pay in blood. are you with me or against me?"

    yay! no fourth wall!

    Drills have begun! The first drill will be a Public Drill - anyone can come and watch. I will start around 3PM EST. Once I have 3 Captains online and ready to commit in the new Chatroom, we start. Anyone else may observe and comment on things. But it doesn't start until 3-3:30 even if I get that many players in before then!;)

    Training DD. DD is the naval term for Destroyer. So basically Training Destroyer.

    Ah crap. I won't be able to be on until 430 at the earliest. Good luck to those who participate. Is there any chance latecomers can join in when they arrive?

    I've had to postpone to 4 already - why not till 4:30? But no not really. Once it's started you can come and observe/comment, but not participate. There will be a rerun of this drill tomorrow around 5:30 though.

    That's about what your training DDs look like, people.

    I'll be at football at that time tomorrow. And yeah I had some delays today. Are the drills over yet?

    Edit: plus I can't get on chat for some reason on my iPod touch. Can't even observe. Darn. Hopefully I can fix my computers Internet by the second round of drills. Just say the ship bringing me to the academy is running late.

    The first drill has concluded! Nuke and Duke Blackstone have completed the Basic Run with flying colors and gained some XP. The player listing has the totals. I'll rerun that drill with every captain, but with a few slight differences. Also, Blackstone and Nukeknockout can still join the reruns if they want.

    But yeah, I'll see about getting a new drill up as well. Time to make some new stats . . . .

    Yes. Maybe with a few minor changes, but everyone will go through the general first drill no matter what.

    Nuke and Duke Blackstone can replay if they want, but every player makes me add more enemies to keep it balanced.
