It's time to take down the list. I appreciate everyone that stepped forward to give my treasured books a new home.

Thanks all!

Thank you for the offer. I do have books to read but I would like more. The problem right now is that a 1 year old likes to chew on some books - even if it is just the dust covers. Who would have thought that a 1 year old cat would still be teething?

That is not teething...it is tasting. Wait till the toilet paper roll looks at the cat wrong and cat bites a chunk out of it.

Giving up your books Dan? I suddenly felt sad reading that.

I've got a 4 month old Jack Russell that eats books {on my Christmas present}. Two cats that cannot be trusted. And no room for the books I've got. Thanks for the offer. I hope they go to a good home.

That is one reason why I don't use the toilet paper holder for the roll. Also, it would be unrolled into the litter box but they would not use it to wipe . . .

All books now entered. I'll leave this open for a few days, then close it start shipping in next week or so.

This is my swan song on this forum. I've been here since 2000, owned and played everything from Pacwar to AE. Did development on AE, tons of scenario extensions (with lots of research for them), even hacked the PacWar and Uncommon Valor data files (don't tell Eric). It's been fun and now, to quote my favorite author, so long and thanks for all the fish.

Don,

I know you don't want people to reply to this thread but I can't not. Damn this makes me sad. End of an era.

You are one of the great ones around here a true class act and I remember you since my college days when I first got into UV and WITP. This game and this forum would not be the same without you and your vast knowledge and contributions and scenarios. So I just wanted to say thank you and godspeed sir. It makes me so sad to see you are leaving us.

You left a legacy here without equal. There will never be another team like the one that made this game. It is why I don't think another game like this will ever be made again...You are legend

Thank you for everything! [&o]

The last 20 years have been the best of my life. This game and this forum is a part of that. You are a part of the forum. Thanks Don.

You all are too kind. I'll still be around for a few days until I close out the list of available books. Between now and then I think I'll poke around the forum and see if I can help here and there (or perhaps just cause some mayhem).

Hello Don, sad to learn that you retire from the forum. Thank you so much for all your work! "Don's Babies" aka DaBabes Mod will remain a lasting legacy. I for my part will never go back to stock scenarios again. Also thank you once more for the inspiration and the help you have given me for my "Bottlenecks" DaBabes spin-off, which is a feeble attempt to create a sort of Ersatz-"Zygotes" (I guess still no chance to get our hands on this personal mod of yours...?) - your invaluable input and generous advice will always be remembered. Fair wind and following seas!

(I am mulling over one or two of these books, but I will probably keep mulling them over until someone else snaps them up)
