    I just started the first Honor Harrington novel by David Weber "On Basilisk Station". Any opinions?


    I have a CDROM with the ENTIRE series on it, could NOT put down my laptop, I love that series.

    Honor Harrington is one cool lady!!

    David Weber did a Great job on the series and that character in particular.

    Now, if he would write more Dahak and empire stories, Mutineers moon etc, I would one happy camper!!


    From your mouth to his ears. I pray daily that something from DW will be coming out before the year is out.

    Just got and finished David & Leigh Eddings's The Elder Gods. A bearable overarching storyline but unfortunately the characters they are using are pretty much in the same vein with the characters they created in both the Belgariad & Mallorean series and The Sparhawk series plus the Redemption of Althalus.

    If you have their previous books you will see the resemblance immediately.

    Not to blow our own horns or something to that effect we seem to be the ONLY organisation/corporation (albeit unofficial as yet) out here in the boonies. And even then, our membership is LOW way.....low

    I'd like to analyze this a little, not simply with replies saying, "That guys dumb, or he is obsessed." Thats obvious. I want to know if anyone could actually comprehend spending 86 hours on a computer. I want to know if anyone has ever been so obsessed with a game, that they got so attached to their characters, that they went through actual withdraws over losing it. I'm not trying to start a "Gamers Anonymous" thing or anything like that, I'm truly intrigued by this.

    Actually Bandus, this is a fact of life. Obssession is a part of the human nature. The only person that can stop your own obssession is yourself.

    I do admit that I have went through 36 hours straight of playing X-com UFO Defense way back when. I skipped my meals, my showers, my assignments in college, my classes and everything else. And no sleep!!

    Finally it struck me that I could play the game anytime but life outside of the PC does not wait for one. With much, much regret I pushed my obssession aside to concentrate on a more balanced play time.

    If it wasn't because of a sudden sliver of sanity I might have been in the the man in the article you read in 1993.

    Discipline and self awareness is more important that anyone thinks.

    I apologize for the slow response. But it is great to see you post again. Your offer sounds really good.

    Just a couple of questions.

    1. Can we use intercorp-unlimited.com instead of under-core.net?

    2. How much does this web host charge you? We might want to pool our resources to defray your expenses.

    3. Do you have enough time to maintain and update the site? Or do we need to appoint someelse to do it?

    4. Any suggestions?

    Anyway talking about inercorp restructuring, it might be a good idea to retire the diplomat division for now because Im not sure if there is much interest. If more people wanting to play diplomat turn up then it can be brought back.

    Will do. What about the other topics of discussion?


  6. Now that the two weeks is up. I guess we can proceed with the discussion on how to reorganise Intercorp.

    Proposed reorganization of Intercorp.

    A.

    The dropping of the following sub-divisions due to lack of response of the founding director(s):-

    1. El Dorado Inc

    2. Exploration Directive Inc

    B.

    To merge all sub-divisions into their divisions until there is a larger demand (to have at least ten (10) members for each caste) for separate sub-divisions to with as follows:

    1. The Services Division will now be known as Commodities Inc and will cater for Trader, Commercial and Paramedics castes;

    2. The Information Division will be retired until enlistment of the necessary number of members and will cater for Explorers and Scientist castes;

    3. The Liaisons Division will now be known as Consignee Inc and will cater to the Diplomat caste;

    4. The Operations Division will be known as either Guns For Hire Inc./Shadows Inc. (to be decided) and will cater for Mercenary, Assassin and Raider castes.

    5. The Human Resources Division will be known as Neophyte Inc. and will be retained as is.

    C.

    1. To discuss on the resiting of the www.intercorp-unlimited.com website to a new web host;

    2. To organize volunteers to redesign and maintain the website;

    3. To discuss on the appropriate and necessary information to be uploaded onto the website.

    D.

    1. Restructuring of the timeline of Intercorp to facilitate RP;

    2. To facilitate restructuring of the timeline, all existing and current members are to submit a biography of their OC to be incorporated into the timeline;

    3. To appoint a member to maintain the timeline.

    E.

    1. To set out general guidelines for recruitment and enlistment.

    It's taking quite a while isn't it. Anyway best of luck. BTW what do you qualify as again?


    Hehe I get to be a mechanical engineer. Its actually less than half a year come to think of it. I'm just counting the graduation ceremony.
    Ha ha, then you'll be joining us in the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly grind of RL.

  9. Hmm, quite a change of characters.

    The original names are now callsigns and the two major cast have been changed to females, how politically correct.

    Let's see where it goes, if it keeps to the spirit of the original series, I don't see where it can go wrong.

    GUNS FOR HIRE INC.

    Mercenaries Sub-Division, Operations Division, Intercorp Unlimited

    Introduction

    Guns For Hire Inc. (herein referred to as ÔÇ£GFHÔÇØ) caters to the mercenary caste and seeks to provide the best service available by maintaining a database of all registered member mercenaries. Thereby if contacted with the offer of a mission, GFH will be able to match the mercenary or mercenaries to the criteriaÔÇÖs based upon skill, experience and knowledge required in the mission and will recommend the best available mercenary or mercenaries for the mission.

    Any potential employer must sign an agreement to provide full disclosure of the facts, environment and potential dangers of each mission. Failure to do so will absolve GFH from any liability from the employer in the event of failure. Furthermore, GFH reserves the right to use all its resources to prosecute the errant employer by any means necessary if can be proved that the employer has failed to disclose all available information.

    GFH retains the right to investigate any information disclosed by the employer by any means necessary in order to ascertain the validity of the information. Should any conflicting information be discovered during GFHÔÇÖs investigation, GFH shall consider that is a failure on the employerÔÇÖs part to fully disclose all relevant information. In that event, all expenses incurred by GFH during the investigation will be charged to the employer.

    Due to ever changing nature and circumstances of the universe, GFHÔÇÖs Board of Praefactus retains the rights to judge the severity of the employerÔÇÖs failure to provide information. If the lack of information is due to unforeseeable or mitigated circumstances, the culpability of the employer will be appropriately reduced.

    Charter

    Consignee Inc. provides a service to all members of the Corporation who are of the diplomatic caste.

    Consignee Inc. acts as a point of contact for all of its members. Any diplomat will be able to use Consignee as a place to easily seek employment and for potential clients to seek qualified diplomats as employees on a contract basis.

    Consignee Inc. holds no responsibility for any contracts agreed between diplomat and employer, any failure to complete the contract on the end of the diplomat is solely their responsibility. Consignee will however provide assistance in legal proceedings that a member wishes to take as a result of the employer failing to uphold their side of the agreement.

    Facilities of Consignee are available for use by all members of the Division as a safe environment in which they can conduct their business. Due to the neutral nature of Consignee, it is ideal for the staging of negotiations without fear of potential harmful involvement from outside sources.

    Members of the Division are bound by all rules and regulations of Corporation and Consignee while they remain on any facility under the control of the Corporation or Division. Failure to abide by these rules will result in an appropriate penalty.

    Though members are bound by the rules of the Corporation and the Division while stationed at one of its bases, the Director of Consignee is bound by rules of the Division and the Corporation at all times and must uphold them. Failure to do so will result in being called before the Board of Directors for appropriate punishment.

    Consignee Inc requires that a charge of 4% commission will be paid to the division as a result of all transactions made by its members and their employees. This payment only applies to contracts that are arranged through the assistance of Consignee, and not any independent contracts made outside the division.

    Members are required to make payments to the division within two weeks of the conclusion of each contract. Non-compliance with this rule will result in the immediate expulsion from Consignee Inc.

    Any earnings made by the division (after commission to the Corporation) are to be invested into improvements to Consignee Inc.

    A member that just applied for membership and has recently been reassigned from the HR division to the Commercial division.

    Responsibilities

    Work with assigned team members.

    Benefits

    5% of revenue (after expenditure) for involvement in any group transactions;

    Bonus equivalent to 5% of net revenue for significant contribution towards creation and implementation of new service;

    1% discount on all goods and services purchased from all divisions and sub-divisions of the Corporation

    Any revenue left over after payment of group level portions as outlined above will be divided equally between all participating members of that group.

    If there is insufficient revenue to meet the above payment schedule, all hierarchal level percentage portions will be multiplied by a factor of 0.8 until reduced sufficiently to meet payment to all participating group members. Any amount left over after payment of the modified group level portions will be divided equally between all participating members of that group.

    While ED acknowledges the absolute right of all members to remain independent, this structure is designed to encourage all members to work together, with the aim of maximizing the potential for earning revenue as resources (intellectual and financial) can be pooled and utilized in the most efficient manner.
