<DIV>I'm leaving in the morning for a week-long visit to France! I'll be at a fansite/media event in Paris and a games convention in Cannes.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'll post a recap of my journey when I get back.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>My board time will be limited, so please send PMs to Faarwolf and Blackguard instead of me. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

Nope, Faarwolf will be taking the gerbils off their power-generating wheels to feed them in the mornings while he's gone. <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<DIV>Maybe they'll be rebooted in early morning France time ... so the US can suffer instead for a change!  :smileyvery-happy:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Bon voyage, viva la France, et ne mangez pas aucun grenouilles!</DIV>

It has been stated quite clearly that devs will never respond to posts addressed to them or to requests to 'look at' posts.By the way, his job isn't to fix your class. His job is to read the sewage that flows in this forum and try to find some tiny bit of relavant information that he can pass on to the developers. I am sure they all know by now that you are unhappy with your shadowknight, and are all probably wondering, like everyone else, why you havn't rerolled yet.

The vast majority of people from most countries worldwide are good, honest, hardworking people whom usually don't like the way things are operated by their governments but shrug their shoulders and go on about living their lives. The Governments are what drive the Us vs Them mentality, not the majority of good people in all nations.... /rant off</DIV>

Just want to point out that while I do not support political garbage being thrown on these boards, if one side starts it, the other is entitled to answer. The anti-Bush crowd fired the first shot. If you want to blame someone, blame them.

You cannot imagine at what point you got lucky with the snow in Paris. Usually, we do not get any or if we do it does not last more than a couple days - which was the case here. Anyway, even by living there... I must say that snow falling over Paris is probably the most beautiful sight of the city you can get.
