Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

ENN


This website shows our news and coverage tv station ENN.
It covers most of the events which happened in the Global Thunder MBX, ran by Rikki Tikki.
Also participating in this MBX was Larry Bond.

Hey Stoffel,

I'm the guy who created and maintained (with lots of help from a variety of TacOpers) ENN for Riki's Global Thunder MBX.  Thanks for posting the link here, and I hope some of this website's readers enjoy reading an issue or two.

Actually, that old ENN series popped into my mind just today, because of one of the faux news headlines I featured on the main page of Issue #3... The Faux headlines were just to "flesh out" the ENN main page so it didn't look like ONLY war news was being reported.  Some headlines were suppose to be futuristic type news - when written in 2001/02 - and others were just for laffs.

That issue #3 was create 5 - 7 years ago or so, dated for the September 2009 MBX news, and one of the stories was "Hubble's First Image of Earth Sized Exo-Planet "...  And then today, in November 2008, the first REAL Hubble photos of exo-planets (planet outside our solar system) were released, albeit probably not an Earth sized ones.

As Maxwell Smart would say: "Missed it by THAT much". ;-)

So doing ENN for that MBX was loads of fun (and work) and it's too bad we never got the chance to publish a final 10th edition after the MBX war ended.  There was some talk about doing whipping up a "The War Has Ended" issue, but it never happened.

If anyone has any questions about it, let me know here or PM or email.

Cheers!

- Steve
