No pain meds yet, unless you count booze.
Which you definitely should!
25 5/15/2020 9:45:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Rob, I don't see the PM 005 file on dropbox. Can you see it in there. If not, can you reload it.

Let me know if we need to take a break. I don't want to take unfair advantage of good pain meds!
24 5/15/2020 12:35:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Will not let me copy the VASSAL log Greg. Will keep trying.
Meanwhile, I screwed up your file nomenclature by just calling my PM 005. Will go to your system on next activation. Sorry, I think I have PTSD from the pre-op surgical conference yesterday...

To copy Vassal transcription to ACTS you can just highlight the rows to copy and paste them into ACTS. Control C and Control V works easiest. I sometimes try to make it make sense, but a lot of the time I just assume the Vassal module will make sense so I don't bother.

How do you get the VASSAL log text copied to the ACTS log? Typing all this crap out is a pain in the ass.
16 5/13/2020 8:32:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Rob,
Yes, all good. Sorry, I emailed the log file but not sure if you received it. It was hopefully less confusing than my pasted log.

Dropbox worked fine. All you for card 1.

13 5/13/2020 12:40:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Draw Strategy cards Drew 5 cards.

NOTE: Using 'Arcadia Conference' option.

12 5/13/2020 12:40:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message The game's afoot. I'll draw and send ENM.
I will choose to take Arcadia. If there's one thing we learned in our CBI Blitz antics, is how annoying this dang thing can be if left unattended.

Hope the hip gets better quick. My grandfather had that done about 20 years ago and he's still driving a school bus at 90. Well, he was before school got out for the summer during spring break.

I should be good for a card a day. We'll see how it goes once we get rolling.

Do you want to set up a dropbox for exchanging vassal files?
11 5/12/2020 5:31:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Draw Strategy cards Drew 7 cards.

6 5/12/2020 10:11:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hey Greg,
Nice to meet you. Bid accepted, will await your ENM. Iím usually good for a card per day. Covid is awful, but will take any chance to get this hip working again.
5 5/12/2020 1:13:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hey Rob. Another new face for me on here. I've been lucky in this tournament to play all new folks. I should say, folks I haven't played before. I'm in Wichita KS, CDT.

Watching the staff game on Consim world has been scary. Talk about a bloodbath. I guess you never know in this game.

I'll take the USA for 0.

Hopefully, you can delay any surgery until after Covid containment. Whenever that will be.

Guess I better download .7 version of the game.

Bty,
4 5/10/2020 7:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hey Greg, Rob here in Eugene, Oregon. I'm retired, and have a bad hip. Getting surgery in a few weeks, and may die. Therefore, you should feel sorry for me, and let me win.
I await your bid.
Best of luck!
