Title: Have no fear, mmarsh is here!
Post by: mmarsh on 11 April 2010, 02:24:18
Greetings all. Nice to see several old faces here, and several new ones to boot!

A few things about me For those who don't know me:

I am an American working in Paris, France. I come from a long line of American Soldiers dating to the US Civil War but due to the stupidity of youth I opted not to serve myself, a decision I deeply regret now. I am toying around with an idea to join the National Guard if I move back to the States before I reach 41. The wife however is not terribly thrilled at the idea.

Lets see interests. Well I am Network/Systems Admin by profession so I like anything computer related. Anything related to Military History, Especially WWII Aircraft and Submarines. I am also a big fan of 19th century warfare
and  I am on a bit of a Napoleon Total War binge right now, so if anyone wants to talk Nappy, either the game or the man I look forward to it.

Thats all for now. Ill be around. Good to meet you all.

Nice to see you onboard, mmarsh! I guess you will find it a bit boring here compared to IMF, but then also - probably - a lot more civilized :).

interesting profession and hobbies! I had "Napoleon-Total War" in my hands last weekend, the luxury version, but didn't buy it.... I tried "Rome-Total War" but it couldn't keep me interested...how do you compare "Rome" and "Napoleon"?

about WaT: WaT is a mixture of database and forum, some posts are just there to share data, others become very lively with respectul and grown-up discussions between our members. I'm sure you will find that out pretty soon yourself.
Never hesitate to contact us with ideas and/or suggestions. Or just gimme a call when you have a Q about the forum, posting or content. TA is the technical supervisor, I am responsable for the content of WaT.

As TA said, have a look at our rules which are there to make sure WaT will stay what is is: a friendly environment where people treat eachother with respect. THAT is for us priority no.1!

ps: I opened a topic where we can discuss Nap-Total War: http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/games-reviewspreviews-general-discussions/napoleon-total-war/ (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/games-reviewspreviews-general-discussions/napoleon-total-war/)

We
I think we need an IMF refugees forum.
:)


could make it a member group, with a nice badge "IMF Refugee" :)  We had this after the total diaster of airdisaster.com when we started airdisaster.info, helped as identifier...

Not saying what restrictions we here might burden upon the IMF refugees  ;D ;)
