Excellent news. The images on TV have been quite scary.

10.5 days without power!

 Lost power on the 9th just around noon as the hurricane passed by.

 No power, no AC, no lights, no stove/microwave/toaster oven, no hot water, no TV, no computer, no modem, no internet.

 Florida. Summer. Hot. Humid. Sat around in the dark and sweated. Didn't sleep well, didn't eat much.

 Couldn't go anywhere since most places were also without power.

 For a few days, gas was scarce, because most gas stations didn't have power, and so couldn't pump gas. The few that either had power or emergency generators had long lines and then ran out of gas. Tried getting by on ice, but so was everyone else, and ice quickly sold out.

 Finally got power back about 8:30 last night.

 So now we're cleaning up the mess.

 It'll probably be another day or two before I get caught up on all my games.

11 days without power really sucks... but at least you weren't injured! Hopefully damage to your property was minimal as well. Now that you have AC back, get some rest and get your life back in order; I'm sure all of us can wait. :)

I'm back... and having seen how much even on a week away my husband and daughter both spent messing on their smartphones I doubt they'd cope with that long an outage!

*sigh* Sorry. Anger issues. I usually just take a hammer to my computer, but one wasn't available at the time...

Apologies for the delay... again.

I sort of took a vacation... though it was more like a time-out. While I was waiting for Kaspar to rewrite his post, I found myself needing to recharge my gaming batteries. That usually just involves on me working on some project on my computer. Then, as usual, the days just slip away.

FYI
At least you have a RL reason for posting blues.


Also, a heads-up to everyone... it's holiday season. Generally posting for PbP games drops off a bit during this time. Even when you don't think you have the holiday commitments that others have, somehow, they sneak up on you and screw up anything you may have had planned... or even screw up your unplanning.

That's been my case. No commitments, yet those pesky holiday things have crept into my time and energy. Nothing on the horizon, but they may show up anyway.

Just letting you know things may be iffy until the New Year.

Pfui. Don't know whether it's the holiday blehs, blahs, blues or busyness, but I find myself unusually lacking in time with unexpected lack of mental energy to boot. I get a few posts in (if I'm lucky), and then my brain turns to mush. Getting around to posting as I can.

Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

"Będę narzekać, jeśli chcę! Jestem stary i źle wychowany, a jako Amerykanin pochodzenia włoskiego jestem tak daleki od bycia polskim profesorem, to nie jest śmieszne! Witaj w drużynie, Wilhelm. Piwo i pierogi są na mnie, gdy wrócimy do Colorado Springs."


Loosely translated - "What Hilda said."  Kinda loses something in the translation...

Oh, I don't.   After all, you're getting a known skill set being replaced with a stranger.

I don't know if the question has been answered yet but what about is the date in game?  I was thinking about my character's possible back history but I don't know what "today" is to work backwards from.

The year is 2018, but the time-frame is just at the end of the second season. I think we started it out between episodes 220 ("Show and Tell") and 221 ("1969"). As I stated way back when, though, I sort of use a floating timeline.

Since the game has been running for 5 years now, and all the teams have been on 2-3 missions, I suppose it would be somewhere in Season 3 now. I can't think of any reason to pick an episode, though, so if someone has an idea for it, speak up.

Huh. I've been acting as though it was 1998 this whole time. Actually, that could just be normal for me. :)

It's hard to imagine that Stargate SG-1 started 21 years ago. :o

The movie was released in 1994 and the series started around 1996, so yeah the date matters.   But season 3 fits the character's background nicely.

It did occur to me that it probably wouldn't hurt to do some updating to the bundles, among other things.   If nothing else, the miniaturization effect as technology improves would allow for better gear.   And there'd be more of a push for digital equipment, after all, you can get a tablet for like 50 USD.

Wilhelm Ashcraft:
He made a mental note of Kasper's comment about the First Ones' city.


Um, Wilhelm, which comment about a First One's City, exactly, would this be, that is being made note of?  I'm curious.

Kasper's comment to Vasandra.

I interpreted Vasandra's post as the ship being in the air already. I didn't read the posts as people were still outside. And Wilhelm was exploring the ship. There wasn't anywhere else for him to be.
