40 9/27/2020 11:42:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message I think I mentioned I was away fro home until end of Sept.

Returning today. Should have household up to speed by early in the week and then can make moves daily.

Normally I can do some moves while away but dear old mom was talked into getting an Apple computer since my last visit. I wasn't sure if Vassal even runs on Apples or if our existing game files would be compatible. And I find that OS very counterintuitive so struggle with doing anything on an Apple.

I did give it the old college try but immediately ACTS asked me for my password, which I haven't input in probably 5 years and have no idea what it is. It recognized my account email address but then never sent me the recovery email.

I took that as a sign to leave well enough alone :)

All that is to say that since the board has not changed with your play I'll use pass 1 of 2.

Back to you.

I'll accept your bid of 0 and we'll start the game this way.

Do you do use file sharing services like Dropbox or do you exchange logs via Email? I'm open to anything.
