    Tennessee Objectivists?

    I am probably the only one but hey I had to ask.

    Eragon / Eldest

    I may have missed it but I didn't see any mention of Eragon or Eldest the sequel that just came out. Anyone else read them here? What did you think if so?
  3. This is a budget simulator. Its not perfect or anything but it might be fun to mess around with. http://www.nathannewman.org/nbs/ I cut all non-essential federal spending, increased the military by 100%, increased police spending by 100% and cut taxes by 100% and I came up with a surplus of 350 billion. The simulator say I should cut taxes more which of course I would.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I am doing lot of that already but its good to see it reinforced. I have been looking over some of Dr. Hurd's advice on stress management in the last few days as well and its seemed to help bring things into focus as well.
  5. Well I would like to know if Objectivism can help too. I have been diagnosed with depression and am anxious a lot. My problems come mostly from external factors that I cannot control so much like the death of my Father, running a business, raising a 3 year old, and dealing with my Fathers estate. To make things even more interesting I have high cholesterol and am at high risk of having a heart attack young like my Father. Some days I feel like I can handle everything and others I feel like its all too much to handle.

    I like the RTS games some but don't have the time or ability to focus on games like I used to. What's up Mrocktor, its been awhile.

    Online Strategy Game

    Hey I wanted to invite you gamers to join me in a free online strategy game. Its called ogame and you can check it out at www.ogame.org Basically you start out with nothing and build up an empire with mines, fleets, etc. You can be peaceful or form alliances whatever you want. I have an Alliance called TLI that stands for Temple of Logic Insitute. Some of my enemies are the Communist Catholic alliance among others. There are about 7000 people in my Universe, which is Universe 3. If you have time and the interest, stop in and join my Alliance.

    Mrocktor never heard from you. Anyway we need more Communists to crush. They have all but given up. Someone should go and post that Communists are underrepresented in Univ 3 of ogame.

    MightierPen I thought of this after you said you were quitting. You can play the Turtle style of game. Log in once a day, build defense and log off.

    yeah what he said. Also what I have been doing is attacking 3 waves with the last wave having all the cargoes. You need a big target and a lot of fleetslots to do this though. For example. Wave 1 - 30 BS Wave 2 - 30 BS Wave 3 - 25 BS, 50 SM Cargo The 1st 2 waves knock out about 1/2 the defense so by the time the 3rd wave hits its pretty safe.

    Yes I can see how that would be annoying to people without Commander. We have people signing up with MSN chat to un-clutter the message board. Also we are only taking people with over 2000 points now. So if you want to play go ahead and apply when you are close to 2000. The wars are over at the moment thanks to Rational Egosits fine diplomacy skills.

    b-ships are one of the best ships in the game becaise they are fast, give you punch, and have decent cargo capacity. I would not build tons of them just yet though. Maaten, you have been inactive for 3 days man. What's up?

    All right, back from vacation. If you can call travelling with a toddler time off. You guys are kicking butt. Keep it up.

    When you destroy a planet it stays there as destroyed planet for about 24-48 hours. After that is gone you can try for the same spot again. As to the blind attacking get higher espionage tech and use more probes like mrocktor said. Try not to attack planets if you are not sure about the defense. You can always get a higher ranked Alliance member to scan for you too. When I come back from vacation you should all have at least 5000 points! See you later.

    No you can't change your home planet but it might be good strategy to put the best stuff on your biggest or a bigger planet. That way people won't know where you keep all your good stuff. When you click to send someone a message it tells you there home planet.

    thats pretty big. My biggest one was 311 but my 1st 3 were 63, 101, and 155 so you will get some bad ones too. I kept the 155 and blew up the other two. When I tried again I got 295 and 311 so it was worth losing those resources in the long run.

    it depends on how close you are to the star in a system . The closer the better with a max of 50. Temp has a lot to with it. Of course 1-3 planets generally are too small to be useful so stay away from them.
