Yep.  Its nice to do good scenes when you have time.  With running my 
own firm and such not as free as use dto be when I did pbem ssay a 
decade ago.  But after 30 years of them I've had my merits.  The best 
scenes are those with 2 or 3 people only cause after that diong 
something with 50 on a map you lose the grace of details for 
speed.  I mean it cna tame me 3-4 hours just for one phase with a 
group like that so if I do 2 phases its a long piece of work so you 
suffer the great wordplay for speed.  But I do recall when I was in 
college nad had 18 hours a day doing pbems so do recall those 
days.  The good od days.  THe hardest challenge was doing a SFB 
campaign with over 500 ships on the map.

ahh...groups..shiver...some bad....instances with them. Having to log 
into them and read rathe rthan havn he updates coming via a list is 
so much harder for lazy folks like me. :) Plus with Yahoo I've lost 
so many passwords and logins over the years it was hard to get those 
groups.  But I'll try.  I do like yahoo for their TV schedules but 
that's about it.  I guess I'll have to sit and do yet a 20th or 30th 
login for the site. :)
