    quote:Originally posted by Spiny: quote: aw, thats nuthin'. Wanna impress me, combine yours with Unknown_Enemy's, add the pages (for BCM Gold), put it in a nicely formatted HTML file, send it along to Gallion to give it once over and I'll add it to the appendix when Gallion passes it along At least you didn't tell me there are loads of definitions missing. It'll have to be the PDF version. I've got the European micro manual. Send me the data and I'll format it into HTML for the Appendix Warning - Data better be right I really don't like to make corrections once Appdenix updates are release TTFN

    New Fleet DB

    quote:Originally posted by LordDavid: Derek, since I don't have permission, would you mind changing my alliance from Terran [Military] to Gammulan [Military]? Its quite odd and uncomfortable being a Gammulan Fleet Leader with the Alliance of Terran Millitary! Send me a Fleet structure for the Gammulan Military and I'll make the appropiate changes in the Fleet DB LD Diplomacy and ????? Once the Fleets have been added, you can be changed from Ter/Mil Prime Fleet to Gam/Mil ?????? fleet. TTFN

    Spectre Fleet: Where are we?

    Just an FYI - the Fleet db is getting tuned up. Word will get out when it'll be ready for use. Until then, just sit tight and enjoy the fun. TTFN
  8. Several new members of Spectre Fleet may be a wondering why I do conduct monthly fleet roll calls. [*]I dont like conducting fleet roll calls. Once the Fleet Db is up then I will become more attune to fleet membership. [*]Most of the members of Spectre Fleet are long-time members of the Forum. Some are even part of the DDDD days from the ****2 fiasco and do not require babysitting. [*]Most of the members of Spectre Fleet are busy with RL matters. Some are working for/with no-such-agency Spectre types and/or dealing with the daily grind and fall out form the .com bomb. Status of Spectre Fleet members as I know today: [*]Insurgent One Rattler:  is real busy, and may be at an undetermined geographic location somewhere on this planet but will pipe in once in a blue moon when something sparks his fancy. [*]Insurgent Two Akira:  is around the forum and seems to have regressed into lurker mode for the most part but comes out when warranted/required. [*]Rear Admiral Gallion: Around for the most part. Since retiring from .mil has been real busy with the reality of the real world. Current project is deploying Enterprise Directory Services to 500k users world-wide along with the fiefdom and turf politics there-in; a blooming nightmare and cluster farce in the making. [*]Commodore Kyle Antilles (aka Eclipse):  is busy with the schooling he is getting at college. Pipes in from time to time as his education schedule allows. [*]Commodore Wold: has got a gaggle of littl ones to provide for and juggling between several lines of income and paying attention to his gaggle. [*]Commander PowerCow: El lurker extreme. May show up once in a decade of blue moons. Commander Adam Thomas: Around for the most part. Commander Evan Lysander: Around for the most part. [*]Commander Khelben Drachenfels: Around for the most part. [*]... and there are several other members out there that I am not aware of. On a final note, I check and peruse the forums at least daily. Some topic threads I do even get into (i.e. those multi page debate topics), whilst with others I dont even waste my time responding to. So I have regressed somewhat into the lurker mode myself and become a silent moderator for the most part as the Area 51 tends to be mostly silent these days. Just because there is no evidence of Spectre Fleet activity on the Forums does not constitute a lack of presence. Spectre is always here. A presence felt but not seen  and when M/P is out, watch out  the Insurgency will own these boards TTFN

    Fleet Webpage Update

    Eclipse, please zip the Spectre website files up and e-mail them to me. I'll get a webpage up for Spectre Fleet soon. TTFN

    New Fleet DB

    There seems to be a problem with the permissions associated with Level 3 Admin SC. Rattler should be able to edit all records associated with Insurgent Fleets but can only edit records of the Fleet he his assigned to. I moved him from Balor Fleet to Spectre Fleet and he could edit Spectre Fleet db but no longer had write access to Balor Fleet db records. TTFN

    Where can I find GBS?

    quote:Originally posted by Fiver: Thank you for the info guys. Is the GBS1.zip that I just downloaded at all compatible with BCM:G? No, and GBS-II has not been released for BCM or BCMG. Topic moved to GBS forum. TTFN [ 08-06-2003, 12:01 AM: Message edited by: Gallion ]

    New Fleet DB

    I tried the two Insurgent Fleet links: The link for Bishaman Fleet worked (http://shohashi.tripod.com/). The link for Balor Fleet worked (http://members.aol.com/chavik/balor/fleet3.html). TTFN

  17. Flames off gentlemen! ALCON have been warned If you don't like the style - don't post. If you think that this is all BS - don't post. If you don't like Soviet - don't post. Bottom line: You don't have to post. Topic reopened. TTFN [ 07-31-2003, 06:58 PM: Message edited by: Gallion ]
  18. There is no need to slam anybody's country of origin here on the forum; past, present, or future. Do not confuse order and discipline that moderates this forum with a dictatorship. The SC is harder on the moderators than he is with forum members. Having your post/topic deleted is not the end or the world. IMO, you are making much ado about nada; aka crying over spilt milk. Get over it jascatar. I do not recall the contents of the post/topic that I deleted jascatar. I deleted it and there was a reason, right or wrong they are still gone. jascatar, more than likely your post/topic was already discussed elsewhere on the boards and could very easily been found using the forum search function, or referring to the manual. Since you do not have a legitimate copy of BCM/BCMG (canÔÇÖt remember which game you have), you do not have a manual. This makes you a pirate in my view. I do not like pirates. The ... I bought it on e-bay ... excuse does not cut it with me. You bought an illegal copy of BCM/BCMG, there for you are a pirate in my eyes. The only reason why I did not ban you earlier was because the SC was working with you to get a CD key so that you would have a legitimate copy of the game. Now before anybody thinks that I am going soft, I was reminded by a very good friend, after slapping me with a couple of mackerels, that everyone on this forum was once a n00b, myself included, and had to be prodded in the right direction from time to time. So jascatar, I'll make you an offer I hope that I will not later regret. Send me a PM if you can recall what the post/topic were about and I will explain to you why I deleted them. TTFN

    Help! argh!

    Do a search at cnet.com downloads for RegCleaner. A handy registery cleaner and viewer utility. The website placed an entry in your registry; IE HKEY and startup HKEY that will always make itself the default homepage for IE. Warning backup pertinate data before mucking with registry. Fat fingers have been known to cause BSD and require complete wipe and reload of OS. TTFN

    My (mis)adventures

    quote:Originally posted by Fiver: Thanks for the offer of help, but I kinda already got the impression that there isn't any room for questions that have already been answered somewhere. No problem with questions as long as you have RTFM and used the forum search function first. 99.99% of the questions have already been answered. The key is to research before asking the question. The last thing you want as an answer to a query is see Manual, page 39, para 3 TTFN TTFN
