decat o revista coperta numarul 2

Unde se joaca finala la hochei?

Pai pana acum se stia ca la Brasov, pe 30 ianuarie. Ghinionul face ca un transformator a ajuns prea tarziu pentru a fi montat si testat, asa ca cei din Brasov au anuntat ca nu mai pot gazdui meciul. Federatia, la insistentele Intact/Antena 1 – ca doar de aia cine plateste hotaraste – a hotarat sa se desfasoare in Bucuresti pe patinoarul Mihai Flamaropol. Ora, ramane de stabilit.
Problema comunicarii ramane si in acest caz, pe gsp.ro nu exista nici o stire referitoare la FINALA CAMPIONATULUI NATIONAL DE HOCHEI!!! in conditiile in care au exclusitivate pe eveniment. Dar e bine ca aflam ca:

Benitez: „Nu e cel mai bun sezon al nostru, dar o să repar lucrurile”

Goian: „Mă simt bine la Palermo, nu am de gînd să plec”

Messi, despre eliminarea din Cupă: „Este un eşec dureros”

Raspunsul pentru o lume. Gri. Pentru unii.

Initial am vrut sa raspund direct pe post-ul asta, dar mi-am spus ca o sa fie foarte lung si ca mai bine raspund aici unde nu am probleme de spatiu. Atentie post lung (pentru unii poate si plictisitor) dar va asigur ca merita.
Intro:

Cum să-l votezi pe Băsescu? Cum? Cît de inconştient să fii, să-ţi alegi conducător un asemenea specimen? Pare-mi-se că tineretul din ziua de azi e cu gîndul doar la futhay, la petreceri şi maria. Nu importă cine le păzeşte spatele în Europa. Nu contează ce se întîmplă mîine. Suntem un popor de idioţi.

1. D-aia suntem consideraţi proşti, d-aia ne-a numit Madonna "ţigani"
Nu, Madonna a spus sa nu ii mai discriminam, nu ca suntem.
2. A vândut flota României. Înainte să fie el ministru aveam 286 vapoare, acum mai avem 17. Să nu uităm că preţul unui vapor a fost 1 euro bucata.
Eu nu as lua de bun tot ce citesc pe diverse bloguri si articole. Chiar si asa, in cazul Petromin e vorba de 16 vapoare. Din care 15 trebuiau retehnologizate. Au fost pierdute din cauza ca nu s-a platit imprumutul luat pentru reparatii. Iar daca ai un vapor care te costa (preturi fictive doar de exemplu) mentenanta zilnica 100 lei si il tii in port de 6 luni ca nu se poate lucra cu el, suma aia simbolica de 1 leu, te scapa de niste cheltuieli imense.
3. Băsescu are porniri hitleriste. Vrea să dizolve Parlamentul, să-l facă unicameral şi să facă alegeri anticipate.
Da, si eu vreau unicameral, asta inseamna ca sunt hitlerist? A spus de foarte multe ori ca nu doreste sa faca anticipate, sa nu il credem pe el si sa ii credem pe cei ce zic invers? Si chiar daca ar face…ar fi prima oara? S-ar roti pamantul invers? Se topesc ghetarii?
4. Dacă se poate, să schimbe Constituţia încît să facă ce vrea din popor
Mai precis ce ma obliga sa fac prin constitutie? Sa ii dau toti banii castigati? Sa ii aduc ca ofranda primul prunc? Sa mananc cacat? Ce naiba sa faca din popor? Mai ales ca nu prin constitutie impui niste masuri ci prin legi. Chiar credeti ca aia din UE sunt cretini si vor lasa pe orice presedinte din aceasta uniune sa faca chestiile astea incredibile pe care i le puneti in carca lui Basescu?
5. Cenzurează presa pentru că e criticat de aceasta şi se luptă cu jurnaliştii, numindu-i "ţigancă împuţită" şi "găozar"
Asta e cea mai tare remarca. Presa era cenzurata si terefiata de pe vremea lui Nastase. Daca puteti numi cenzura ce s-a intamplat in ultimii ani la Antena 3 si in ultimele luni la RealitateaTv, inseamna ca traiti in alta lume. Singura cenzura a fost chiar cenzurarea lui la aceste posturi.
6. Şi-a băgat oamenii peste tot: în toate ministerele, instituţiile şi la toate vămile.
Da, asa se face in toate tarile. Da un search pe google sa vezi cati functionari s-au schimbat odata cu venirea lui Obama. Este ceva firesc ce oamenii aia de acolo au inteles ca e normal sa se intample.
7. Dacă ar putea să controleze totul, n-ar sta pe gînduri. La fel cum n-a stat nici în '90 cînd a dat drumul la trenuri să vină minerii în Bucureşti. Miron Cosma a spus că Băsescu i-a dat trenuri pentru a veni în Bucureşti.
Adevarul e ca a controlat totul…au trecut 15 ani pana a ajuns presedinte. Ce bine a planificat el deschiderea catre mineri…..Si e foarte bine ca putem sa il credem pe unu care a facut puscarie si sa luam ca adevar tot ce debiteaza.
8. Ar vrea ca Udrea să fie mîna lui dreaptă şi în public, nu doar în pat. Dacă ar ajunge premier, cum îşi doreşte cheliosul, ne facem de căcat în Europa.
Asa cum tu esti mana dreapta, si nu doar in public ci si in pat a lui Mircea Geoana. Aaaaa vrei dovezi? Pai nu am dar zic si eu asa, zice si ala asa, si celalalt…..
9. A jurat strîmb pe Biblie că n-a dat cu pumnul în copil, fiindcă l-a lovit cu palma, şi şi-a plătit "experţii" să-l scoată curat
Daca e sa o luam pe strambe…si pe Geoana il cam ardea cartea aia, nu? Si a spus bine, ca nu i-a dat cu pumnul. Si chiar daca filmul nu ar fi trucat, ce rost mai are? Nu aveti o poza cand se usura pe puntea vasului la 35 de ani?
10. Prietenii lui sunt mogulii gunoiului, electricităţii şi ai asfaltului
Si ai altora sunt mogulii produselor petroliere si ai mass-media. De aia platim un pret enorm pe banzina desi producem o cantitate impresionanta, iar presa o vedem in ce situatie se afla.
11.De-asta în timpul mandatului lui n-a asfaltat nici măcat un km de autostradă, dar i-a plătit pe toţi.
Inca merg cu 130km/h pe drumul facut de el spre moldova de pe vremea cand era ministru. Iar cu kilometrii de autostrada..mai calculeaza. Si mai intreaba cum era legea exproprierii. Plus cam cat dureaza un studiu de prefezabilitate. Apoi unu de fezabilitate. Apoi cat dureaza sa faci un apeduct. Sau un pod. Ca sa ajungi sa torni ultimul strat de mixtura asfaltica trebuie indeplinite si realizate o multime de etape. Constructorii trebuiau sa lucreze pe ochi frumosi pana la taierea paglicii?
12. A minţit cînd a spus că va suspenda miniştrii corupţi. N-a făcut decît să le protejeze pe Udrea şi Ridzi.
De aceea Ritzi e cu dosarul in instanta? Si baietii se chinuie sa ii gaseasca si blondei niste motive, asa cum frumos se exprimau in inregistrarile alea?
13. Pentru că a ieşit acum preşedinte, i se vor prescrie dosarele penale. 6 doar la Primărie. De fapt, ăsta era scopul. Ce face frica din om!!!
Aha…deci un om care a vandut flota si a castigat (teoretic) sute de milioane de dolari din afacerea asta, intr-un timp in care banii aia reprezentau mult mai mult decat acum, inca mai vrea sa faca giumbuslucuri de primar?
14. A avut tupeu să afirme: „Nici eu şi nici guvernul nu ne-am propus să scoatem ţara din criză".
Vezi ca in fraza initiala era si banca nationala. Si da, nu poti scoate tu ca presedinte cu guvernul tau, tara din criza. Nu singuri. Nu atata timp cat restul tarilor de pe langa tine sunt inca in criza. Nu se poate!
15. A tăiat sporuri, bugete şi nu numai, la bugetul de stat intră de 5 ori mai mulţi bani, dar noi încă suntem în criză. Doar pentru asta şi nu l-aş fi votat.
As vrea sa vad si eu statistica asta si cum s-a ajuns la cifra de 5 pentru ca daca am reusit asta, suntem cei mai tari de pe pamant.
16. Spune că românii sunt necalificaţi pentru posturile din multinaţionale, dar nu face nimic să-i ajute. În mandatul său, legea învăţămîntului a suferit cele mai multe modificări.
Da sunt, pentru ca acolo (sa zicem la Vodafone) se angajeaza ca assistent manager si unu care termina constructiile si altu care a terminat filologia. Nu poate el schimba de la el putere planurile de invatamant ale facultatilor de stat, ca sa nu mai vorbim de cele particulare. Daca s-ar intampla asa ceva, l-ati face dictator. Cam cate modificari a suferit legea invatamantului pe vremea celorlalti? Cand intr-un an se dadeau 7 materii la BAC, anul urmator 5, in celalalt 6, etc?
17. A scos PSD de la guvernare tocmai pentru a controla Ministerul de interne şi a uitat că a fost votat tocmai pentru a scăpa de Năstase. L-a pus pe Blaga la interne ca să controleze tot. În toată ţara, funcţionarii puşi de PDL fac frumos pentru Băsescu şi încalcă legile. Date tot de Băsescu, ca să-i fie lui bine.
Da, i-a scos de la guvernare. Asa se spune atunci cand te roaga o saptamana sa iti pui un alt ministru si cand restul ministrilor isi dau demisia. Mda, scoatere de la guvernare. Deci daca nu il dorim pe Blaga sa controleze tot, inseamna ca iti doresti un ministru de interne care sa nu controleze tot ce misca in tara? Sa mai fie niste ‘gauri’ pe unde sa isi faca treaba baietii?
18. N-a băgat un leu în sistemul sanitar românesc. El s-a operat la Viena, dar pacienţii români "crapă sau scapă", dacă au bani de medicamente, că-n spitale nu găseşti.
Pai si atunci aia 6% din PIB unde se duc? Spitalele alea (asa cum sunt) cu ce functioneaza? Oamenii din ce sunt platiti? Salvarile merg cu aer? Medicamentele sunt platite cu bani de monopoly? Daca tie ti-ar spune ministrul Sanatatii ca trebuie sa te operezi la clinica din Viena ai refuza si l-ai lasa pe ‘prietenul’ Oprescu sa te opereze?
19. A izolat România de restul Europei şi a distrus agricultura cu bună ştiinţă, să intrăm în UE
Pai cum a izolat-o de Europa cand ne-am integrat in Uniunea Europeana? Stiu ca el a distrus agricultura, l-am vazut eu cand citea pe camp o revista „Plai cu Boi” in timp ce unii desfaceau sistemul de irigatii. Nenorocitul!
20. În timpul mandatului său, am avut cele mai puţine vizite oficiale primite şi efectuate (în comparaţie cu Iliescu şi Constantinescu, să nu mai spun Ceauşescu. Apropo, toţi preşedinţii români, a.k.a. dictatori au nume care se termină în -escu). Axa Washington-Londra-Bucureşti a rămas doar o iluzie.
In cate alte tari a mai stat la aceeasi masa: presedintele Romaniei (Basescu), presedintele Statelor Unite (Bush) si presedintele Rusiei (Putin)? Era o vreme cand plimbarile astea erau la moda, acum sunt oameni destepti care se ocupa de multe din interesele externe ale tarii, vezi platoul continental. Iar daca si Constantinescu a fost dictator……
21. Cei mai mulţi emigranţi au fost tot în timpul mandatului său. Deşi nu le-a convenit să stea în ţară sub conducerea lui, au avut neuronul amorţit şi l-au votat.
Emigrantii nu sunt ceva rau. Majoritatea au ales sa plece la munca. Si au putut sa o faca legal, pentru ca in timpul mandatului Basescian s-au deschis granitele. Nu iti mai trebuie decat un buletin ca sa ajungi sa bei o cafea la Starbucks-ul din fata Brandenburg Gate. Cu Iliescu cum era?
22. Pişă ochii atunci când merge în Afganistan, dar nu îi protejează pe militarii români în niciun fel. De-asta ei l-au votat pe Geoană, fiindcă Băsescu i-a făcut "carne de tun". TAB-urile româneşti sunt de pe vremea lui Ceaşcă, puştile de împrumut, iar uniformele pomană de la UE.
Mda, ar trebui el sa se transforme in veste antiglont pentru a-i apara. Oamenii aia stiu la ce s-au dus acolo, sunt platiti foarte bine pentru asta si o fac de bunavoie. Si da, diferenta de 12 oameni in plus pentru Geoana din Kosovo este relevanta. Daca avem TAB-uri de pe vremea lui Ceausesc (+20 de ani) inseamna ca sutem foarte inaintati cu tehnologia din moment ce ne accepta toate organismele internationale. Uniformele alea pomana sunt facute de multe ori in Romania si sunt aceleasi pentru toate trupele. Si sunt trupe NATO si ONU, Uniunea Europeana nu este organizatie militara si nu trimite armate pe campuri de lupta.
23. Din vînzarea Alro Slatina către ruşi, Băse şi Stolojan au scos 50 de milioane de dolari.
Aoleou, alti bani. Pai si ce face cu ei soro, ca nu il vad sa se bucure de ei, nici el nici familia lui si nici familiile celorlalti acuzati. Cat mai asteapta, sa ajunga ca Iliescu?
24. În campania din 2004 îi considera pe români homosexuali, iar în 2009 îi consideră drogaţi. A se lua notă că nici măcar în Olanda drogurile nu sunt legale, ci tolerate. Avem şi-aşa o grămadă de drogaţi, fără să fie liciţi...
Daca la tine 20% inseamna toata tara…asta este. Macar milita pentru drepturile lor. Ia da o raita prin cateva cluburi, adulmeca vara aerul ce iese din camerele de bloc si apoi sa imi zici ca lumea nu ‘trage’. Sa nu scoatem din codul Penal acuzarea consumatorilor de iarba, dar sa lasam la liber alcoolul si tigarile, vicii care conform tuturor statisticilor provoaca milioane de decese anual.

La final, mentionez ca nu sunt si nici nu am fost membru de partid. Nici macar nu am lucrat/lucrez pentru PD(L). Nu m-a platit nimeni pentru postul asta.
SI DA, AM VOTAT CU BASESCU !

I'm s6.travian.com winner !!!

Acum aproape 10 luni, dintr-o greseala, am inceput sa joc Travian. Si pentru ca era o greseala, nu am intrat pe un server romanesc ci ditamai serverul international. Am nimerit intr-o zona relativ nepopulata. Fara sa stiu cum se joaca, am incercat sa imi dau seama cat mai repede posibil. Am construit oras dupa oras, bazandu-ma pe defensiva. Am facut fata multor atacuri din partea celor din zona, ce se unisera intr-o alianta. Am pierdut o oaza de crop 50% in defavoarea unuia ce avea cu vreo 10 orase mai mult decat mine. Dupa fiecare atac masiv eram invitat in alianta din care faceau parte atacatorii. Le-am refuzat pe toate. Tindeam spre LoD (Liberty or Death). Nu vreo alianta asociata, ci in alianta principala. Ghinionul meu a fost ca, criteriile de acceptare au fost schimbate fix in ziua in care am aplicat. Iar cum trebuia sa fac fata deselor atacuri, armata mea nu putea atinge curand noile standarde. Am ramas solitar. Pana la un moment dat, cand jocul incepea sa tinda spre final, am decis ca trebuie sa intru in alta alianta. Si nu pentru a supravietui ci pentru a participa la crearea World Wonder-urului. Si asa am facut. LoD*C-H~(inainteTUA*C-H~) a fost wing-ul din care am facut parte pana la sfarsitul jocului. Singurul regret a fost ca eram cam departe de restul membrilor si nu am putut colabora mai bine. Oricum, intrarea mea in alianta lor a fost benefica, cele 14-15 orase din acel moment aducand un boost in ranking-ul general, motiv pentru care au fost acceptati in una din aripile LoD.
Cand planurile au fost capturate, natarii invinsi, ne-a fost repartizata WW de la 90 | 13. Pentru ca eram destul de departe, am facut tot posibilul si mi-am facut inca 3 orase in apropierea WW-ului pentru suport. Mai mult, pentru ca produceam foarte mult, am hotarat sa suport si WW-ul de la 330 | 29 (Humble Pie detinut de simethered). Aceasta din urma, a avut prima sansa de castig multa vreme. Din pacate, un atac a fost devastator si a redus level-ul drastic. Toate resursele au fost apoi redirectionate catre 90 | 13. Iar Solanum Virus detinut de Lethal a ajuns astazi la ora 23’11 la Level 100, ceea ce inseamna castigarea serverului. In aceste momente, se desfasoara o mare petrecere world-wide pe Skype pe canalele private ale aliantei. Si poate ca pe unii ii intereseaza cam cum arata o minune a lumii de nivel 100, si cam ce resurse si trupe sunt necesare pentru a castiga un server de travian, priviti la imaginea urmatoare.
PS: la final sunt pe locul 486 din peste 5800 la general, cu o populatie de 16166 oameni si 23 de orase, iar alianta din care am facut parte a terminat pe locul 40. Ce ar mai fi de adaugat: primele 4 (patru!!!) locuri din clasamentul WW sunt ocupate de orase din alianta mea. That’s fucking great!!!!!

Si mai jos, o istorie a aliantei LoD:

The History of LoD and the Northeast Quad as written by Red from the simethered account (disclaimer, while much of this was available for comment all of the observations and comments here are from Red and interested contributors, and is not a reflection of the whole of LoD) :

All of last November Galt and Mojeaux worked long hours planning for this run. Those plans were executed over the first month of this run to a great deal of success. From the beginning the leadership that formed held honour and honesty on the level of Sime and enforced by him with his sage wisdom and steadfast example to all how this game should be played. Galt and Mojeaux captained this ship through the beginning of the server and followed the aforementioned goals both espoused. A word from Mojeaux:

[quote]

„One reason we went NE and formed SuS was to counter a possible FFH reincarnation. We figured with Sime and Galt’s advertising that we would have a revenge plot on us. It never showed. Two weeks into the server we encountered a player named Tye who recognized SuS’ skills and was recruited. We were astonished by the former FFH off coordinator’s skill and integrity. He allowed us to recruit some other FFH figures lead by one Redneck Woman. We liked them and quickly felt they fit in with us. So we decided to put our trust in them and brought them into the fold. They returned that trust 10 fold. Without them we wouldn’t be here in the position to win.”

[/quote]

The Dark Alliance was our main opponent early on and they knew not that LoD had a sister alliance in Serve Us Sushi, headed by the SuS pirate Phos who took no quarter and spared none. After a bit of early war, LoD and SuS unified officially as was intended from the beginning on Valentine’s Day with a public note to the DARK alliance The following is an excerpt from Pelleon’s opinions of these times from the DARK perspective along with some comment:

[quote]

„Basically, us in DARK were trying to find a way to form a combined alliance at the time of our ceasefire in January. We felt that the stance LoD took with us was too inflexible and didn’t accurately reflect the realities of power (lol). That meant we had to start making a deal with SuS in order to try and convince LoD that working together was the way forward for the quad (little did we know…). I won’t go into the debates regarding the diplomacy that went down as that would serve no useful purpose. At the end of the ceasefire, war broke out as all parties knew it would. DARK tried to keep it from escalating to no avail, so the fight was on.

For an alliance that didn’t have the benefit of organization before server start, we managed to do well enough, improving our coordination primarily on the defence side of things. We were mostly holding our own, though with DARK being smaller it was clear we could not keep that up indefinitely. So we had to look for allies (anyone remember NWM? Major fail in that alliance right there). Then the SuS surprise was sprung on the server (SuS = Surprise us Shockingly?) and we knew that we had tough times ahead. We cast about for help (ARMOR among the attempts) and found a very little (NKVD(RU) was willing), but it was clear that would not help us in the end. When casting about for assistance, we also recruited WAR and ~DU~ (remember them?), who we thought might make some fine additional members after we had the chance to ditch the chaff from those alliances (that’s probably why it appeared that we were going to use them as meat shields, but we really had no intention of doing that). Of course, these alliances betrayed that deal after one day, with the Morpheus and Jyrgen leading the way.

And let’s not forget the defection of what used to be the CyFans alliance members, PopMyTaco being the one that hurt most as he was our offensive planner at the time. That really stung morale.

In short: LoD managed to destroy DARK more from the inside than on the battlefield. A lesson well learned and put into practice to great effect on s7, I might add.

All this time, the diatribe on the forums was bitter and incensed many DARK members, while on the personal level, some of our members were defecting to LoD. In the end, I made the incredible mistake of talking to Rob and found to my intense shock that he was nicer in IGMs than on the forum. The talks we had led to some understanding, and talks with Si led to more diplomacy. A proposal was made to the DARK members and accepted, merging the two alliances.

Alas, I’ve been stuck with you lot ever since, when I could have been evicted from the server and have had some peace and quiet. You’ve grown on me though (sort of like moss, I think), so I’m returning the favor and you lot get stuck with me in turn.

[/quote]

It was during this time that Si and I swapped duty with diplomacy for all of LoD as he stepped down from leadership for a break. After a few more exchanges the Dark Alliance Players voted and agreed to join us and we moved forward with Pelleon and Author joining our leadership. Admittedly we got some inside information there in DARK to validate some things but I leave it to the individual involved if desired to tell it.

February brought about a surprise where one of our own that joined another alliance was voted to lead the alliance Blood, Phineasgage brought those that met our standards in and the others went to holding wings for training and growth. Things began to gel as we welcomed our new DARK brothers and sisters and the Blood players. March began the MYTH/LoD war start after a horrible exchange in which it became apparent to LoD that there were many chiefs running things in MYTH. LoD thought this could be leveraged similar to what CWL did/was doing in the SE. In response we talked to Nikani and also to FUN, about their interests in the NW. We pledged support should either turn against the seemingly chaotic MYTH and then *poof* but they were eventually merged with MYTH proper and Nikani disappeared. I still kept trying with FUN but always was denied. March also brought about rapid growth and expansion, along with the recognition of a surprising group of players in three wings of the ROT alliance headed by BlueManGroup, Bud Nelson, and Cypsteel. Our diplomacy turned into mutual admiration and in April the simethered account moved into ROT to pay an extended visit and meet and greet the players there. Eventually the best of ROT merged with LoD with a full leadership position at the table given to BMG, who has honoured us since along with all of the former ROT members. His comments follow:

[quote]

„Founded by BudNelson and BlueManGroup at the start of the server, our goal was simple: create an alliance based on the principles of good communication, patience, discipline and common sense. We had just finished another server where none of those traits were present and it was a nightmare. Our vow to each other and to each new member was to be a better alliance than we were before.

Our first major acquisitions came from the Dark Knights (TGA-DK) and Floating Point Exception (FPE-0), who together made ROT an alliance to be noticed. With the addition of PTT, ROT became a 3-wing alliance and suddenly was „a player” in the NE. It was also at this time that we knew we couldn’t survive on our own, no matter how much we wanted to. We were approached by LoD, SuS and DARK, each wanting us to join with them. In the end, we joined with LoD to become their fifth wing, LoD*ROT, on March 29.

Since that time, LoD*ROT has been a Top 10 Defender 5 times and a Top 10 Attacker 10 times, including back-to-back #1 Attackers in Weeks 35 & 36. Occupying the heart of the NE, LoD*ROT has provided support for all LoD wings along the NW and SE borders and, during endgame, for the Bleucheez WW.”

[/quote]

May saw first waves of war from NW to NE and the flames were fanned into outrage between Myth and LoD. It also started a relationship with ARMOR held to this day. ARMOR rallied together and expressed desire to join LoD.

June wrought words from TUA on forming allies. LoD standards were shared with TUA as was with ARMOR. ARMOR did a fantastic job in having all members meet the requested standards – and as such they were granted the path they decided upon under the direction of Terix. fickle1, founder of TUA adds her thoughts:

[quote]

„TUA was formed over 2 years ago by trogs and me , a lot of players from other servers joined us here at the beginning of this server , both trogs and myself ran a wing but trogs eventually deleted handing his wing over to someone else . having started about 2 weeks into the server we were surrounded by myth and czech players so decided to move into a „safezone” near the border between NE and NW , this opened up a lot of new farms for us but unfortunatelt FUN also settled in our area . At first we had an unofficial NAP with them which they kept breaking thanks to some ex nikani players they had recruited . But we gained strength and wings with strangelove eventually breaking off to form NUT wing for the strongest players and me with the slightly weaker players in an effort to help them grow . We knew early that we would not have the power to build a WW thanks to our constant battles with fun and myth so started to look around for a strong alliance . Thats when we opened negotiations with LoD and after a lot of negotiations and inspections ! our main two wings became LoD wings with all the other smaller TUA wings eventually joining as well to assist in the end game. I’d like to thank all the officers especially strangelove and also all the members who stuck with us through some very hard times but stayed the course and never quit on us despite all the attacks and losses.”

[/quote]

TUA formed two wings to be checked for admission to LoD and LoD*NUT was born. This rankled MYTH a great deal and they immediately wanted us to remove them from confed, but our word had already been given. Once given, never betrayed. We tried FUN as well, but you know how that ended . We waved a confed and NW WW site at them but they stood by MYTH all the way. Here’s to FUN for holding the word given.

July ushered in the beginning of a long-term relationship with TUA*NEO and Frank1982.Words from Frank1982:

[quote]

„LoD*NEO started off with very humble beginnings. Most of us were in the NW initially near the centre of the map. A couple of us signed up to the ill-fated PunisherNW alliance which didn’t last long. We broke away and formed our own alliance which we named SG3 or more commonly known as Stargate. It was there that we grew as an alliance and progressed forward. Naturally we had incursions on our players by all the larger alliances but we stood fast and continued to grow ourselves. With the demise of the Stargate meta, I searched for a new Meta and this was where we found Hera, Nick and Nikani. We became Nikani O, or Nikani “Outback”, this was because we had chosen to affiliate ourselves with LoD in the NE and we started to set up shop in the back end of the NE. There we grew and managed our armies. When Myth Toppled Nikani, we were the only ones of them to remain in tact but considering the multiple attacks we faced we seeked out a new affiliation. This I found in Fickle1 and the TUA group. We were accepted as a large wing and soon became known as TUA-NEO. When TUA were incorporated initially with lod, I chose to keep out as I felt we were not ready. It was then later down the line that simethered joined us and gave us the rights to a full lod wing. NEO was the founder of another brotherhood alliance in the form of LoD*NTW, NEO was also instrumental in granting the CH group TUA rights as well as RGU. As LoD we have assisted the 330WW and we brought a new alliance in for support in the form of LoD-MERC. ”

[/quote]

MFD and LoD continued to talk, but most of it was frustrating crap and fingerpointing and outrageous demands (from LoD’s opinion). Here is the beginning of exhaustion on many of LoD’s efforts to calm the waters with MFD. July also began the dissolution of ONE in the SW to our dismay, and this heightened LoD concerns for survival. Finally in a summer of change, Galt and Mojeaux stepped down from the helm of the LoD command and passed the duty to Phos and Rob/smallgreenblur/pigpigying.

August experienced ONE dissolution and part of the border ONE becoming LoD*BO. Redneck Woman got an alliance of subjects claiming her as their Queen. SL began the first attacks on LoD. LoD realizes combat vs. MFD/SL/OZ is imminent. LoD begins looking at rest of server facing 3v1 that gives a crap for joining LoD. After all failed attempts to reconcile with MFD, LoD resolves to fight MFD to the end and ruin any chance of them winning the server and throws odds to the wind in the face of the upcoming endgame due to the gathering storm. I personally visited the smaller alliances to rally the players together and get an eye on how the structure was in leadership of each. It was at this point that I was working many things diplomatically between leadership of the smaller wings and the rest of leadership with LoD. I talked to more in the SE as well that expressed any interest. I also think the final reorganization of our wings took place in August, with players moving to geographical alignment for better logistical efforts. Therefore, ROT players moved to other wings, for DARK and SHDW had moved a couple of times etc. We kept the names on the wings to honor the history of these players and I hope to get some history from the smaller alliances as well pre-LoD.

September started with massive attacks on LoD from all angles. With our frustration against MFD we resolved to continue fighting them alone. LoD decided to defend and insert against SL attacks as we could not fight the server. Many of the other smaller wings that respected LoD we brought into confed during our darkest hour as the natars arrived. We were resolved to our fate – then a miracle happened and Si resurged by negotiating a ceasefire with MFD and the hostilities ceased to gather breath and talk. ZoDa exploded in MFD. Desert Fox exploded and took LoD*BO with him with the sole purpose of fighting SL. Kareem and MTK exploded in LoD and the 330/29 WW was down to 3 pop at one point after that betrayal. EVO was formed by Kareem on another account with some LoD deserters that started to attack our smaller wings. The following are comments from one of the co-leaders of MTK and explain what happened there: Rombas explains:

„We started early at the server as group of people mostly good players. i wasnt so experienced back then. picked at by lod’s who we started as friends with them. still managed to get ourselvs back toether n make a better thing together and in that trip of survival i met with shisha and kareem started very good together n team working, then i guess people got greedy n wanted to have more not shared powers in hands.

kareem was a great leader in many ways – had a talent of making connections with many people in good positions in various alliances – uniting many people who came from dif places during the merge we made to form MTK. After survining a potential war with BBQ due to an ex leader’s stupidty me n kareem took over leadership

Until at one point for not very known reasons kareem decided to disband MTK n blow all the good hard work we did toether along with all the players were in our group
at that time Kareem n bluemosaic alon with SOME NOT ALL of NUT players n some other lod wings decided to leave n join EVO to get done with the old plan was in thier mind when left LOD which is to manage some how to hurt LOD. After they failed to ruin the simethered account from within, they had a back up plan which was either to steal the plan from u or to manage some how to damage as much possible from both ur off n def
n i guess they did a good job at that even if was at the cost of losing thier own villages n having to delete (edit: they caused us to focus on them, yes but then they saw what real armies and wings can do – red) but i didnt see any sign of regret at some of those deleted as to them they were done with thier target close to what they had in mind n the others only deleted to follow with thier buddys at other servers as it was meaninless to them to stay around after that.

As for me n who was left of my alliance, some did managed to get along with kareem’s storys n turn against me n my leadership which wasnt really perfect anyways n some left as they were not of the material that would stay n fight with us as they were either lucky to grow that big but not well experienced anyways or coz they got too busy in life issues to again keep it up with own game fights, anyways i had Red who’s a friend n helped me to get myself and who was left back into new alliances n since then things r calm n kinda boring. I started with supplying for red’s ww now i am finally online ater around 8 days away due to conn down at home i am now in family’s house in alexandia thanx God they r connected here so i got to know more about the updates. Red’s ww got a bad hit so now there is another main ww to supply as it has a better chance of wining still we should keep some supply to red’s ww too. i am doing that well so far as whilest i was away i managed to use mobile to login n build troops every where so had some saved to send to leathals ww too n still keep some back to send red’s way. 🙂 ”

Jussy of CH alliances shares her alliance history:

„C-H according to C-H~

Most C-H players spawned mid server – back in April – out in the middle of nowhere! For many it was their first server and a steep learning curve. Friendships were made with some delightful local LoD players who must have been amused by these newly arrived « future farms » stubbornly refusing to give them any resources. C-H became farmers and negotiators fast!

C-H~ has it’s roots in *SPQR* founded by Audreaxo who built his team promoting unity and hard work. Audreaxo initiated a “New Village Program” superbly managed by Xecutioner and unlike many other similar programmes it was a huge success. With a good alliance base established, Audreaxo temporarily handed the leadership over to Xecutioner who continued the great work . Xecutioner negotiated the merging of *SPQR* with RAYLIN bringing in more keen local players, two of which would later become leadership. Under Xecutioner’s management “The New Village program” was continued by new member Janal from RAYLIN. Audreaxo returned to full leadership and Kalaman from RAYLIN became co-leader. Smaller alliances such as VIII joined up and Audreaxo got his diplomat – Jussy. Audreaxo’s negotiations with the delightful PhilEVO81 were a success and local meta C-H (Crimson Horde) was born – consisting of C-H^, C-H* and C-H~. Focus became end game. C-H^’s huge block of villages had new neighbours joining – all hoping a wonder village would turn up near the « stonghold » (sadly not the case). The goal was simply to make it through to Natar arrival in one piece with a dream of perhaps being a part of a win! We joined TUA and entered a whole new larger world. Sadly some of the leadership from C-H involved with this merger have since deleted due to lost battles and real life issues. Although we keep in regular contact with Julius1 who built C-H* before being destroyed in relentless attacks. PhilEvo81 left to get married and Hikone and El-Lobo continued to build C-H^. Friendships were made with TUA players and a highly active and amusing skype forum was enjoyed by many. TUA-C-H were delighted to become a LoD wing after a lovely welcome from our new good friend Red – just in time for Natar arrival. As late starters having an end game was a surprise and delight. The battles became major and inserts skills were improved fast – there have never been farms at C-H so onslaughts from alliances such as EVO meant the inevitable.
Leadership makes and breaks alliances, Audreaxo’s personal obligations meant handing over the controls to Jussy and Janal who willingly accepted with Audreaxo and Kalaman stepping down as co-leaders to become co-counsel. The end game was steered by these two determined women and players got to help their wonders – fast build support villas…and had a very enjoyable party. S-L support villas were squashed, new local wars with S-L sympathisers were started. There were flash chiefings and some very overworked catas. Towards the end Rkcj1 helped keep us motivated and organised our battles whilst we diligently fed crop to wonders, faked, built, stole and destroyed..hehe what fun!!! The leadership is honoured to have been given a chance to work with a group of such enthusiastic, intelligent and loyal people. We have enjoyed some fine times with good new friends. Many C-H players new to Travian are now on other servers – all new addicts..We’ll be around for some time….”

SL spammed as they had the entire server on the public forums with as much derision as ever about a ceasefire. Personally this was a real roller coaster ride of a month.

October brought plans and endgame began in earnest. Lines got drawn. LoD and MFD continued talks about our separate fates re: SL. SL spammed incessant spew on the public forums wanting to drive a wedge inbetween. Both sides saw it for what it was and discussed strategy. Public forum derision from SL began turning hardliners from both sides of the MFD/LoD war to new thoughts never considered. It ended with a public announcement of intentions. A fine group of warriors from many LoD wings faced down and eliminated the threat of EVO led by Redneck Women and Scorpios with successful after successful waves of attacks until the threat was eliminated – most of EVO deleted.

November is now in it’s waning few remaining hours. Hammers have been gathered and launched. WWs have been hit with myriad degrees of success. So far, it has been a rather even battle for the endgame. The Lowca, Sergei Molotov, and raptor accounts stepped up to offer some much needed help with plotting out SL hammers and WW planning. The work done to gather SL hammer information was simply brilliant with a lot of time invested that *almost* killed off three the hammers launched at the 330/29 WW site. LoD gained the best chance they had to win the server with the work of Sime talking with MFD and remaining ONE to unite after getting publicly assaulted with hacking accusations. The server was never uglier with that 27 page thread calling LoD and MFD everything under the sun and it united us in our efforts. LoD stole some construction plans from SL.

I do not know yet what December will bring but I know it will not be boring. I see six level 90 WWs split evenly between the North and South. Neither LoD or MFD or ONE would have had as good of a chance to win without the others (and SL would have crushed the divided in my opinion) – and all stood together with words true. All server long the main factions have had MM exchanged care of spywork so the final slog on the battlefield is being played out as we speak. Sooner rather than later this run will end one day when someone hits lvl 100 WW. Hammers are flying and final solutions being plotted. Whoever wins it, congratulations for a well-played round.

Finally, on a more personal note: I don’t harbor personal ills to my enemies, for this is a game and next run you may be allies – also I know that many have had personal RL tragedies and as such this game just gets small in perspective. All the best for you and yours outside of this game. I know of a few whom I have come to know as much as text can tell you of another and regard them as friends – and they will not be returning for a while to the game for a well deserved respite. Enjoy it and I look forward to „seeing” you again. Thank you for sharing this wild ride and allowing me into some of your lives.

Thank you to SL for giving us the challenge. Thank you to all in MFD who also gave us more challenges and later camraderie for the final acts. Thank you to ONE for fighting the good fight and never quitting completely. LoD realizes that MFD and ONE shared a much broader border with SL and thus had more direct action with them.

Thank you to a player named SuperWolfie, that acted as a special envoy first in the NE and later s6 in talking to others while being outside of LoD proper. We wish you the best in real life with your new love. Thank you to every confed and NAP’d alliance leaders and players that supported LoD in our darkest days. Thank you to LoD leadership for giving me the friendship and trust and many long days and nights of conversations and work. A personal thank you to every wing that let the simethered account in as I met so many great people. A heartfelt thank you to every LoD brother and sister – we’ve had some entertaining times (not to mention the ladies of the LoD WTC!). If you haven’t been included here yet I’m sorry – but thank you. Finally, thank you for the example that you are Si and giving me a chance to learn how dualling is the best and helping me improve my game skills – anytime you want it, you got it.

LoD has had it’s first server together with all it’s ups and downs and adjustments along the way. Could some things have been done differently? Sure. Mistakes? Everyone made them. Learn and move on. There will be a great deal of improvement for the next time we gather. I’m sure there is room here for a little more, so please share it if you have it. To those returning with this group next time we run – enjoy the break.

„Dupa ani si ani” era o melodie a celor de la Compact. Ei bine, iata ca inimaginabilul s-a infaptuit. Esquire Romania are site: http://www.esquire.ro. Nu e ceva sa te dea pe spate, inca nu e actualizat cu toate edfitiile, dar este un start. Intarziat, ratat, amanat…totusi un start. Sper sa nu fie un start pentru trecerea in online a revistei totusi…..
PS: in vechea pagina exista o casuta unde iti bagai adresa de mail ca sa fii instiintat de noutati. Sa mai spun ca nu am primit nici un mail?

Nescafe Dolce Gusto

Plimbandu-ma cam sictirit prin Carrefour, ochii mi-au picat pe noua (in Romania) masina de cafea/espresso/cappuccino/latte macchiato/chococino produsa de Nescafe.
Pretul era pe la 570 lei cu 12 capsule incluse. Totul bun pana aici.
Iau un pliant sa aflu mai multe detalii. Ghinion, se pare ca nu pot afla totul din hartiuta asta, si sunt invitat sa vizitez http://www.dolce-gusto.ro . Pacat ca la adresa respectiva nu exista un site functionalbil.
Nu este nimic, sun la numarul afisat. Intreb pretul aparatului, tipa nu stie sa imi spuna. O intreb cat costa capsulele, nu stie nici asta. Multumesc frumos si inchid, pentru ca (cum se intamampla de multe alte ori) stiu eu mai multe decat persoana de la care trebuie sa aflu detalii.
Oricum, la cat costa o capsula (1,7 lei) m-as fi asteptat ca aparatul sa fie mai ieftin, asa cum se intampla cu imprimantele.

Da, pentru tot. Pentru curve, dezincriminari, parlament mai mic si cu o camera. Da.

Din tot raportul ăla de 300 de pagini mass-media de la noi a extras doar două subiecte care în raport ocupă sub jumătate de pagină dar care au făcut să curgă multă cerneală prin ziarele din România. Legalizarea prostituției și dezincriminarea consumului de droguri. Subiecte numai bune de bătut apa în piuă și de manevrat idioții moraliști de pe tot cuprinsul țării.

Tot ce vroiam sa scriu despre subiectul prostitutie si droguri gasiti spus deja de Mikutzu

Cat priveste celalalt sibiect, Basescu deja a castigat in fata tuturor. Chit ca se mai face referendum, ca se valideaza si ca se accepta. Doar ca politicienii actuali sunt asa de prosti incat nu isi dau seama. Sau daca isi dau seama, modul lor de a iesi din acest ‘sah’ e penibil.

Bucharest Fashion Week 2009. Day 3

Ziua 3 din BFW a fost surprinzator de scurta. Circa 70 de minute, fara pauza. Dar se pare ca totul a continuat cu o petrecere privata pe undeva prin Bucuresti.
Cu scuzele ca nici de data aceasta nu vor fi puse toate pozele de la toate prezentarile (lipsa timp, sute de poze de sortat), avem:
Laura Olteanu si Mihai Albu
