    I'm in Singapore. I don't know if they do have restrictions here, but it wouldn't surprise me!

    Singapore! What are you doing down there?

    They are a strict country with very strict punishment laws(think corporeal punishment), which I respect, but I wasn't aware they had restrictions on IP addresses.

    They might not, I'm just guessing - it could equally be the Internet provider. But I'm not going to Google to find out! All media here is screened by the government, so you never know.

    Yes, they do have some odd laws and rather strict punishments here, although no odder than in your country, and here they actually work, so it doesn't really impinge on daily life. I'm doing a PhD here, as you know, so it makes no different to me unless I decide to vandalise something!

    I respect Singapore's justice system. To many lawyers here for anything resembling that to take effect...:)

    About 10 years ago William Gibson wrote an article for Wired called "Disneyland with the Death Penalty".

    I read it - pretty silly article, really, in my opinion. People have this idea that Singapore is some kind of cutesy totalitarian regime, a sort of real-life Village (the Patrick McGoohan one, not the M Night one!). But in reality, of course, it's nothing like that - it's pleasant, and the reason for that is that most of the laws are pretty sensible. Well, most of them. But I suspect this to be a threadjack of sorts.

    You suspect correctly, but you're right something's odd with the second download - I had to resort to some trickery to reach the file.

    Doesn't it make you enjoy the game more having good atmospheric music?

    Just let me know if you need anything for this in the future. Mesoamerica(and Incan) is my favorite culture in the world.

    Well, here's the request list from a couple pages ago:

    Trai's since done the granary, and is working on the zoomorph. I'll probably use Plot's palisade for the Palisade, and modify it for the Fortifications.

    Now you've really hurt my feelings!!
    On a serious note however, I don't think I've seen those either. Anything good? - silly question, knowing Red!
