I'll be in Greece for only two weeks, from the end of May to two weeks in June or so.  Not sure of the exact dates, yet ;P

But, we are going to Samos and Turkey.  Not sure what part of Turkey.  Maybe Constantinople!

I know you... you envy him, don't you?  The only thing wrong, from your perspective, is that his dissertation dealt with practical application of physics.... But otherwise, the ability to pontificate (you love to) on food (mmmmmmmm) using physics or theoretical math... a dynamic combination, no?

To combine food and physics is a great and noble endeavour, though he should have dealt with theoretical food, not real food. It is unfortunate that even in the light of such great research, he has debased the field of food-physics by approaching it in a (forgive my vulgarity) pragmatic manner.

Shouldn't such profanity be censored??? It's bad enough that I uttered it once, I mean we might have young children looking at this board. And you're a Moderator at that, shame.

Yes, but I can tolerate the pain of asymmetry and cutting off my own nose in the knowledge that it annoys another person even more...

Perhaps I should send you a screen shot of my latest Civ palace...Muhahaha! ;)

Your overbursting enthusiasm at hours considered too profane for decent humans (8am on a Saturday, a time only designed for kids and cartoons) is disturbing.

Ahh yes...Civilization, what my wife knows as the closest thing to a mistress I have....

My play of this game has managed to convert my two sons as well, aged 16 and 14. Basically my home computer is constantly playing Civ, either one of the saved games each one of us maintains, or in the rare time all three of us have free time, we play the multiplayer version.

One of my big disappointments is that my home computer just cannot seem to manage with Civ 4. On a priest's salary it's not likely that I'll be able to upgrade the video card to be able to play this version, but we're having enough fun with Civ 3 and its expansions anyway.

In fact, maybe we should set up a thread for people to play Civ 3 conquests by the internet, where we can forward the file to the next player. If we resolve to all play one turn a day, it'll keep us busy for, oh, about a year and a half...

I've taken CIV off the computer so I can actually get work done...

That will change next semester, when I'm taking 4 classes for 7.5 credits, and 90% of my week will be free!

WHat Civilization do you play, as in nation or peoples?
And what version(s) do/did you like best?

Civ II by far was my favourite. Ialso enjoyed Alpha Centauri when it came out. I still play it.
And as for nation, I play the Japanese.

Blessings,

Civ III is favorite... Haven't decided who is my favorite to play as (although GiC almost won me over to Egypt... not quite, though)

Panagiotis...

I also, by far, prefer the Japanese. However, I am toying with the idea that perhaps I should start out more aggressively and pick a culture that has an earlier arriving special unit, such as the Carthaginians or Babylonians...

I don't know why GiC likes to play Egypt...I think he just likes being in touch which his feminine side having others call him Cleopatra...

I play CivII (I went to college before CivIII came out, so I was too poor to buy it and too busy to play it).

I always picked the Greeks and then changed their name to the Byzantines. I'd change the name of the ruler to Constantine or Justinian or Alexios I Komnenos or Basil II, someone like that.

I'd change the name of one of my chief enemy to the Turks ;)

So that means you're gona get all of your other responsabilities done too right!?!?! 

Civ. III was the best.  I've never tried Civ. IV, but I think that the whole series is just amazing!

Wait until I get you into the Sims2...muahahahahahahaha.

what card do you have? I got an nvidia 6600 last year and I could really use a better one, but it works, and I have all the TS2 packs.  How would that be with Civ (4, 3, whatever)? I have a feeling I would like to play Rome, isn't that an option?Better be.  I'm thinking that would be a good thread to have, if I get the game i will join in!

Yes, you can play as Rome.  I'm not sure about how the vid card will work with the newest (Civ 4)... I would think that just about any video card (above $50) purchased in the last year would suffice, but then again I've been wrong before.  I've been out of the computer-parts loop for too long...

what is the major difference(s) between Age of Empires and the Civ games?

 We've had the AE bug running through the family network until AE3 when our vid card defied us.  my 10 will also defy us and sneak onto a saved game...it's that addictive to males apparently.

I myself am far to intelligent to play it *that* often.  ;)

AoE is real-time, so the action is constantly happening.  Civ is turn-based, so while you're moving no one else is.

AoE is more on the micro-level (a town or two, moving individual soldiers) versus Civ on the macro level (you can build 50 cities... and while it looks like you're directing 5 or 10 workers/soldiers, they probably represent a group).

Highly addictive to males.  More so to seminarian males (considered as if it were radioactive).

Earlier you let me know of the potenital addiction I will have with Sims2...I'm very interested in it, but I fear it as well, since I know it may take hold of me, and never release me.

Jeez oh man... Here you have a fellow soldier in Christ, serbski, telling you to act like you're from a certain cheese and wine-swilling nation and raise your arms in defeat.

We are to fight the forces of temptation, and to uninstall games like AoE (mmmmm.... AoE... triple walls, Elite Cataphracts....) and Civ (stealths, nukes, and 100% railroad coverage....)...

You know what's unpistevable.  The new coffee maker I just purchased makes my coffee taste like mud. Does anyone know how many brew cycle's it has to go through, before it breaks in?
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

It's just unpistevable how a bad coffee barrister blames his group handle.

HU. :o Are you saying I don't know how to brew coffee. I'll give it 3 days. After that it goes in the trash. ;D

LOL!!!   :D :D

Unpistevable! 

Here's Cleveland who clearly is a part of something that is degenerating (his screen name says it all, and the football team associated with it... :P)  and he's pontificating! 

Is it time to bring out the dueling swords??   ;D :o

Even more unpistevable...cleveland is a Bengals fan. Don't blame him - this from a Picksburgher.  :D

You take three days to brew a cup of coffee? Unpistevable! I'm not surprised it ends up in the trash! :D
