    I asked the same thing in neschat, and somebody said he was fine. But you know how reliable some of these people are. Hopefully he's doing alright.

    A cursory Google Books search revealed Mutiny at the Curragh, an evidently multi-volume work by one Alfred Patrick Ryan. Sort of outdated, but all that I could find on that subject alone.

    He's been busy in real life, by what I can tell from my last talk with him a week ago.

    That's not very kind.

    NES-related: yes, I'd say so, in principle, especially if the sig belongs to the mod of the NES.

    I read through ABNW 2, and if the sigs had all said who the player was, I would have had a much easier time seeing what was happening. For example, it took me some time to work out that you were actually Korea, as, IIRC, you didn't write your name at the top of your diplo much either.

    On the other hand, out-of-date sigs are more confusing than absent sigs.

    I always write my name when I'm doing diplo. I don't presume that other people remember my country. I consider it a politeness thing. So don't worry if we ever play together. :)

    Ditto. It makes diplomacy easier to follow, and NESes easier to join and get into when not being involved right from the start.

    I'm sorry man, you don't know me. I'm trilingual, play three instruments, and write. What is it that you do?

    Now my sig is my own.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like we have half the amount of NESes actively running as compared to a month or two ago?:undecide:
