I make no claim at being other than an average Hearts player and I have no idea of how many times over the years I've played a game of MSHearts against the computer but this is certainly the first time (and probably the last) that I got the following results.

 



 

The thing was I wasn't even really trying to shoot except for the last hand and even then I was essentially forced into it by having to eat the queen early.

 

BTW if there's some kind of che...

The Republican Party

A party whose only path to victory is by getting a large percentage of the white vote, 61% currently and rising each year, a party that appeals to a narrower and narrower distribution of people, a party whose victory depends upon restricting the right to vote and demonstrably hackable electronic voting machines that leave no paper trail, a party that believes that half of the country pays no net income taxes because they're lazy and stupid instead of because 100's...

I recently noticed that my empire had a logo that was certainly not the one I had uploaded so I removed what was there and tried to upload my original logo. I couldn't get the upload to work although at least the offending logo was removed.

Could we get Bara to take a look and hopefully fix this so that I could upload a logo of my own choice?

Last time I tried to post this it turned out we couldn't post. I guess I'll see if that's fixed or not.

Assuming that I can at least post the background (skin?) on the GC2 site is messed up. The background is missing and the About Us and other links at the top of the page are all squished together.

This just started happening. It only happens on my old PC that's running XP Home and only while running IE8. FF is Ok on my old machine and IE8 is OK on my newer PC (which is running XP Pro 32bit).

I keep both machines updated and this has only been happinging for a couple of weeks. Prior to this I had no issue even on the old machine running IE8.

It's really not a big deal since I just ignore the message and click through to the website with no ill effects but I did...

I apologize in advance for the length of this post, hopefully there will be a few folks both knowledgeable enough and patient enough to wade through this and point me in the right direction.

All of my problems began when I switched from DSL to Cable internet service. With my DSL service I was provided a DSL modem which also contained a 4 port Ethernet switch. There was basically no configuration involved. I connected 2 PC’s and an Ethernet printer, all of which were configured to obtain...

It seems that I'm no longer able to change the email address that's associated with my account.

There used to be a number of different ways to access your account information and based on the method of access there were different things you could do.

For example you used to be able to view and edit pretty much all your account information from within the Metaverse area (http://metaverse.galciv2.com/) under Account > Manage My Account, but while the pulldown menu entry is still i...

Something was really funky earlier and I couldn't post or reply to posts.

Same with PM's couldn't compose new PM's or reply to old PM's. Still can't as of a few minutes ago.

When replying to a PM the previous text disappeared while entering any new text but when the PM was sent the old text reappeared but no no text was sent. This affected me but did not apparently affect others on the same forum (GalCiv2).

Also the default font was messed up and the spellchecker didn't work in both PM'...

First off I want to state that this is in no way a political post, it's strictly personal.

Secondly I'm not accepting comments because this is a statement, not a discussion.

The lie to which I'm referring was most recently repeated by Anthony R in Reply #33 of the since locked How do you feel the middle class is viewed? thread. This same lie has also been repeated by Dr Guy some time ago but I don't happen to have a link to the specific thread, however he does in fact make reference to the...
