Matt, put my name right below Golden Ace's lol. Oh and I'm trying to watch my sugar intake, so instead of bringing donuts, I'll bring a cheesy omelette with onions and green pepper and garlic, from eggs laid fresh by my girls. Deal?

On the time...it's hard to get a good time. For some of our team in Europe, east Asia or India, the time is a compromise too. But if we want to have a discussion about best testing times, we can do it.
Ummmmmmm yeah, let me be a little more clear, it may be early for me but I would gladly set the alarm at 2 a.m. if need be to be able to participate. Casey and team, you do what you need to do and I think I speak for most on the forums, we will gladly suck it up to be able to be a part. :D

Now I just need to figure out how to distract Ace and cut.......uhhhhh I mean slip in front of him in line. ;)
I am gonna need to stop for coffee before we head out for the battle. 8-)

I’m sorry Penni but there’s only going to be one login per household. :D

I think I can speak for nearly everyone that some type of caffeinated product will be at the desk, no matter where the players live! :mrgreen:

I have an urge to quote Hans from Diehard:

"We don't alter the plan."

But actually we alter the plan all of the time... :)

Well, Die Hard is now considered a Christmas classic movie...

It even has an Illustrated Holiday Classic book.

A Die Hard Christmas

actually bought it last year - I couldn't resist. it's hilarious.

these are the lines that made me buy it

They spoke not a word and unloaded big crates,
They cut the phone lines and locked all the gates.

Karl swept the ground floor,
shooting every guard dead
while visions of bearer bonds
danced in his head.

I don't remember who said this. but: "No battle plan survives the first meeting with the enemy, but no army without a plan survives the first meeting with the enemy either."

I don't remember who said this. but: "No battle plan survives the first meeting with the enemy, but no army without a plan survives the first meeting with the enemy either."
So I looked it up!

This is the actual quote from Helmuth von Moltke, one of the premiere German generals from WWI;

"No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength"

The other part was added later by a German general from WWII, although the exact identity is fuzzy, as several famous German generals quoted von Moltke in their writings.

I’d heard the first part of the quote many times. The second part “no army without a plan survives the first meeting with the enemy” I had not heard before.

GladDog thank you for looking up where the quote came from originally.

We have a very smart community here. :)

On a note unrelated to either Diehard or the best saying of 20th century German generals, we expect to send out the link for registering for the login test today, probably before lunch in the eastern US.

OK, now that I delivered the message...I wonder if Diehard is on Netflix? Or could it actually be too old?

Can't wait to meet you all under the Arch.
