Every year, on national doctor's day, somebody puts up a "Your the Best!" sign on my door and lots of nice appreciative notes. For 15 years, this has generated a good 3-4 months of increased productivity out of me every year.

This year, in order to share my pride, and flaunt it to the other docs, I went to my colleagues office to show off and he had the same GD xeroxed sign. Then I went up to the second floor and, you guessed it, the same GD sign on every office.

How about just using "Your One of the Best" or "Keep up the Good Work" or even just "Keep up the Work" or "Arbeit macht frei" but don't tell somebody they are the best and then give it out to everyone.

If they didn't inventory everything I would take some pens or something.

Like the 'Demotivator' from Despair.com says: Just because you're necessary doesn't mean you're important.

I'd be Papa India Sierra Sierra'ed off too. I mean if someone bothers to put a sign on everyone's door, they need to check their usage of grammar. "Your [sic] the best"?!? Great. Thanke yu vary mutch.

I think Lord Admiral Alfred may actually be right. I have not confirmed it yet, but I think resource pts. are being consumed at Manila. They might, however, be being attrited somehow by Jap bombardment.

In any event, it isnt enough. The boys are into the orange at Manila. I am going to try to run in some more AK's.


In the manual, page 230, section 13.2.1.2 "Resource centers do not generate supply points"



I am beginning think the AE Manual is a bit like the Quran. You can read into it anything you want.


Cap Mandrake,

No need to take such a defeatist attitude. The manual is not really misleading but it does require careful reading.

In WITP classic, resource centres produced both resource points and supply points. In WITP:AE, they produce only resource points. These reource points (a raw material) are required by your industrial production facilities, Heavy Industry (which also requires fuel) and Light Industry in order to produce supply.

Manila has both local raw material production (IIRC 40 resource centres which generate 800 resource points) and local industrial production (IIRC 100 Light Industry centres which require input of 1500 resource points). As you have a deficit of 700 resource points, your local Manila raw material production is insufficient to fully feed your industrial production, hence the value of the Altimonan (sp) base, a few hexes south of Manila, which has a large raw material surplus which is exported to Manila to keep the Light Industry at 100% production.

Your local Manila raw material deficit problem is of course exacerbated if (a) you can no longer import raw materials from either overland (no supply paths available or raw material production facilities now under Japanese occupation) or sea borne trade, or (b) enemy troops are located at Manila. However provided you have resource points stockpiled at Manila, your Light Industry facilities will continue to produce supply because industrial production is not stopped by the mere presence of enemy troops. Industrial production continues if the necessary raw materials available and the industrial centres are themselves not damaged as a result of enemy air strikes. The fact that you have noticed a decrease in your resource points at Manila confirms my earlier posts that your Light Industry is still producing.

Now all of this may seem a bit inconsequential but hopefully it will serve as a revision exercise which will make you aware that at Pearl Harbor, your local raw material production is insufficient to fully feed your industrial production facilities. Don't forget to send a xAK every so often from Pearl Harbor to the Hawaiian island which generates a surplus of resource points in order to bring back to Pearl Harbor the necessary raw material.

It just seems to me that it is preferable for you to maintain prouction at Manila for as long as possible rather than having to rely upon purchasing supply on the spot market (at those inflated prices) from that nice looking man in neatly pressed linen trousers from M & M Entreprises. We don't want any more experiences like those quoka huts being delivered to the jungle environment of Luzon, do we?

Outstanding show, Simon! Well done.

I assume that POW and Repulse will make port-doesn't look like their wounds are mortal.

How many of his Imperial majesty's (not that one, the other one) screaming SNLF squads / regular army went into the drink?

ETA: Why is your escort TF routing back towards Darwin? Surely Sydney, Adelaide or Brisbane would be more appropo with this sort of battle damage, neh?

That screen shot of a DD and a couple of subchasers taking on Force Z reminds me of a joke.



*********07:45, 1805, somewhere off the coast of Spain*********

The captain of a French frigate surveys the waters to his West. As the fog clears, there are revealed three frigates flying the Union Jack.

Lt.: Mon capitan! We are ougunned! We must flee.

Cpt.: Non! Zey have ze posishun. We must fight zem. Bwing me ze red shirt. <a groomsman complies and returns promptly with an ornate red shirt, which the captain quickly dons. A terrible battle enuses, with heavy casualties on both sides but the Cpt. never wavers, instead standing calmly in the smoke, the shot, the splinters and the sniper fire. Against all odds, the French prevail, sinking one ship and driving off the other two. After the battle the Lt. approaches the Cpt. reverentially.>

Lt.: Mon capitan! Zat was brillaint! Ze red shirt, is eet a family heirloom?

Cpt.: Non, Lt., you do not understand. It ees my zhob to eenpsire ze men. If I have ze wound and ze bleeding zey will loose ze courAGE, eh? Zees is why I wear ze red shirt, so zey will not see ze blood. <well, naturally, the Lt. is now in awe of his captain and makes a committment to model the captain's behavior. The next morning, again the fog clears but this time it is Nelson's entire fleet. Arayed agaisnt the small frigate are 27 ships of the line, including 3 first raters.>

Lt.: <The Lt. feels the blood drain from his head but he remembers his vow from the day before. He barely croaks out the words.> Shall we bring ze red shirt, mon Capitan?

Cpt.: <The Cpt. does not avert his gaze from his foe. He stands stoicly for several seconds.> Non, today bwing me ze brown pants.

First reports seem to indicate that the allied surface units are still steaming away from Koepang with no further attacks. Sadly Koepang fell.

We appreciate it. Drink-poos all round in Darwin tonight. And I'm sure the wardrobes of Repulse and Renown will hold a few c*** and a*** parties to which all their fellow grunters are invited. But not the ratimgs of course, they'll be too busy actually doing the repair work.

Well...that was quite a turn. I was convinced they would pursue our wounded ships with Kaga and Zuiho or at least park them North of Timor and pound them from a distance. Evidently the air threat from Ambon (an illusory threat as there are only 3 Banshees and a couple of Uglofortresses there) and Darwin (which must look intimidating by air recon now) combined with their lack of awareness on the position of the US carriers caused them to be cautious....not to mention that nasty business of the surface battle with Akagi near Ambon.

Chicago and one DD are the last stragglers from Kopeang, having stopped to refuel each other in some kind of bizarre conjugal thing. PoW is making only 14 kts but should make it safely to Darwin air cover this turn. Repulse ans Pensacola should make port this turn. HMS Thanet is buring heavily and is in trouble.

Koepang fell on the first attack but there are no support troops and the airfield is wrecked. Some B-17's from Darwin will rearrange the rubble today. Surely this is not the outcome the Japs intended. Their chief mistake was not having the Surface escort force with two BB's more closely guarding the landing TF. Instead they were tasked with bombardment, a task which they did well but now they have a wrecked airfield. They will now need to get in support troops to Koepang and repair the airfield. We can probably make thnings difficult for them with surface bombardments and LBA. I would favor reinforcing Lautem and building to a level 2 but that is Lord Admiral Sprior's call. If they take all of Timor, then Ambon is vulnerable. I think we have already succeeded in making Darwin invulnerable to capture.

Warpsite just arrived in Sydney after repair time in Washington. Maybe she and the RAN crusiers can come up north?

As for New "Scotland"...the Japs aren't going to land there right away it seems. Instead they turned Left (SE) again and appear headed to Espirtu Santo. I have a single field artillery unit there and no airfield. I pulled out the seaplane tender.

I realize it seems odd to base an artillery unit there alone but that is all I had at the start and I had to scrub a plan to put an Infantry Regt. there when the KB showed up in the Coral Sea. Maybe they can rough up the landing ships. They will take Luganville but I will try to put some troops ashore at Efate and build up the airfield there if they dont beat me to it. The construction of the airfield at Noumea is taking forever even with a few thousand engieers.

One of our opponents was so traumatized from his brush with Force Z that he was ordered to a re-education camp in Nazi occupied France. A few visits to the spa, maybe a trip to Lourdes and everything should be OK.

No turn yet today.

Remember how I was asking about resource points and supply in Manila?
Well, that's not what I am asking about now. I have a question about Cosmopolitan magazine.

So here is the deal. Everytime Stalker Girl buys a new copy of Cosmo, I know she is going to try some experiment...and I don't mean a trial of a new lipid-lowering drug either. So, anyway, I get the AE turn in the email at work that includes the big fight at Timor. I can read the text file but I can't look at the game turn yet (if I had AE at work I would crash something AND not be able to get any work done). So I have to pick up the Mayan housekeeper after work and, as ususal, she is on Mayan time, which, as far as I can tell, is really good at predicting the Winter Solstice and that kind of thing but seriously deficient on the hour and minute thing. So, naturally, she is late, so that ticks me off a bit. Anyway, where was I..ah yes.. so I am listening to National Peoples Radio on the way home and, of course, that ticks me off a bit too, so I turn it off and try to listen to the Cubansimo CD, but I have heard it 18 times and it is Spanish anyway so I turn it off and try to have a converstion with the Mayan housekeeper in a combination of Mayan-Spanish medley and Spanglish. She tells me again it was a mistake to marry Stalker Girl but I can tell she has softened her stance somewhat. None if this is really front and center because all I really want to do is see what happened to Chicago and Pensacola and where the Japs are going to land in New Scotland.

When I get home I have to feed and walk the four-legged friends and help help cook dinner and clean up...but while I am loading the dishwasher I spy a new copy of Cosmo with an article on "Twenty secret spots" or something like that . I try to slink off to the office to fire up AE...it's already like 8:30..my bedtime is like 9:30 and by 10:00 I will be drooling on the keyboard so I am trying to type really quietly as I enter the turn password.

And then I hear from upstairs...."Cap, are you coming upstairs???"

So, finally, here is the question. How do you guys balance AE and the rest of your lives?

What is "balance"?

I bought my wife a subscription to Oprah. Whenever she starts on one of the "Oprah" things, I remark, has Oprah gained more weight? That seems to divert attention for a while. Perhaps having Cosmopolitan in the house is a bit like chumming shark infested waters and having Oprah instead is akin to adding some oil to the raging sea? As for balancing...what life?

Rigid (ahem) adherence to a checklist, much like running AE turns. Everything in ordinal heirarchy.

1. Screaming children / sibling bloodletting? If not, move on to #2
2. Standing offer / invitation for sex?
3. AE turns
4. Sustenance (feed self, drink water, use lavoratory PRN)
5. Time with wife, children not related to #2
6. Time with other family
7. Time with other friends
