# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)

Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.

Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.

Rise of Nations Military Units: Nuclear Weapons :
"Nukes let you offer a nasty undertow to invading armies when you are forced into tactical retreat. If you must lose a city, pull back and let the army from across the border have the town. Then launch a Nuclear Missile at it, and send all your Citizens around the corner somewhere while it's in flight so you don't have to rebuild them. Whatever was left of the invading army after taking the city won't be left anymore after the nuke blast. You'll get the town back up and running before your foe can reinforce."

I'm all for lack of realism in games, but this is a bit silly. I also cringed at the sight of the flamethower units. I must be getting old. Or maybe its been so long since I've played that I've started to get resensitized? Naaa, prob just getting old.


what is the product key?I lost it when I was visiting my grandma.
