Ditto -- the firefox addon that's meant to allow you to circumvent the heinous crime of regionlocking doesn't work.
The problem seems to have fixed itself as I'm up to episode 6 without incident, so if people are using Firefox, look for the add-on called YouTube Unblocker using the Add-On search. Irritatingly the in-tab UI is in german, but otherwise it works fine and you should be able to navigate through it pretty easily.
IT'S WORKING!!!

Thank you Mr A, +1,000,000 Karma points Cheesy

AH alt.games.hobby.frp.general, how I miss thee...

I haven't been on Usenet for a loooong time, as Krensky said my ISP dropped it some time ago and I haven't bothered trying to find a webserver that polls it.

If there were EVER a link I wouldn't click on this thread, I think you've found it  Tongue

I've been out of the Clancy-verse since "he"* started churning out Op-Centre and Net Force trash; I assume this Jack Ryan is the original Jack Ryan's son?

*I'm reasonably sure most of O-C and NF had his name on them but he didn't have a lot to do with them?

Didn't want to derail Mr A's thread on social welfare;

Koala pointed out that Mr Andersen is in Australia; I assume The Mr Dr Professor Koala is as well - Wolverine is from NZ as am I; is there an unusually large Aus/NZ contingent on these here forums here?

Don't forget, gang - tomorrow we're talking Awesome Dice at 7 PST/10 EST on the Google Hangout! We'll post a link here when we've got the room set up.
Of course you waited until I will be on vacation.  Tongue  I hope all goes well.  Smiley

No worries, my friend! We'll be posting these videos up on YouTube so you can catch up as you're able Smiley
Are they up somewhere? I'm subscribed to the Crafty channel but didn't receive any notifications

Danke.  ..I think.  One NERVOUS Koala.  Like a Koala who hopped down from his tree into a den of Kangaroo's on a case of Energy Drinks and watching the UFC.
Hey man, congrats! I just had my first (a little boy) at the end of September, and FWIW as one new dad - there's not a whole lot to be nervous about. It's a huge change in lifestyle from being married with no kids, but it's really, really fulfilling. Accept now that you'll screw up and you'll be much more zen when the time comes to be an actual dad Smiley
Yeah congratulations man! I know this is a bit of cliche, but it REALLY IS TRUE: Get Sleep. Now. There will  be a period of time A.B (After Birth) where you just won't. Being a father is an incredible thing, enjoy it! (I have a ton of advice, but all of it is way too serious for this thread  Tongue )

Saw Thor: the Dark World earlier today. Enjoyable action flick.

(click to show/hide)
Yeah saw it with a bunch of friends last night. Opinions and minor spoilers follow;

(click to show/hide)

Overall we thought it was a very average movie, better than the first Thor but not by a whole bunch. Not a must-see by any means, and dear God please check your brain at the door...

 Embarrassed He was one of the better ones. The book spam that came out in the early 00's (Op-Centre and Net Force in particular, which had his name on it but he didn't really write) were pretty bad, and the last two seemed to be a last hurrah (dare I say cash-grab?) which I didn't pick up, but his Jack Ryan novels were, and will remain excellently written spy/technological/thriller fiction. Must read them again.

He was very American (with a super-capital A  Wink ) but that can certainly be forgiven.

Gone too soon.

Kelsey Grammer to play mercenary in Expendables 3
I get the feeling Mr. Grammer is trying to prove something.
I don't know about that; if I were an actor and my agent says to me "Sly got in touch and wants you in a movie with Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Arnie, Wesley Snipes and Jason Statham" I'm pretty sure I'd say yes before he finished the sentence Wink

The cleverest thing you will see all year. (Someone other than me may be able to confirm that that jargon used within actually makes sense, but it kinda does to the layman's ears)

One more: Donald Featherstone, father of modern wargaming

In the days before companies like Games Workshop, he was one of the go-to guys for wargaming.

I'd be surprised if European nations joined the Trans-Pacific agreement  Cheesy

Having said that, there's an awful lot of nations not on it, as you say. It'll be interesting to see if it has any real effect or if it's just another case of "talking because I like to sign things"
