This post would've been about me if I'd been delayed 5 mins longer  :lol:


Off-Topic / Parting words from Jack Layton
« on: August 22, 2011, 10:22:00 PM »
There are few people I consider great politicians. Fewer still are the politicians I consider great people. Jack Layton had the drive and integrity to be both. While I mourn his passing, I at least am thankful that he was able to leave Canadians with his parting words, so that we could derive one final inspiration from a great politician, but more importantly, a great man.


August 20, 2011
Toronto, Ontario

Dear Friends,

Tens of thousands of Canadians have written to me in recent weeks to wish me well. I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtful, inspiring and often beautiful notes, cards and gifts. Your spirit and love have lit up my home, my spirit, and my determination.

Unfortunately my treatment has not worked out as I hoped. So I am giving this letter to my partner Olivia to share with you in the circumstance in which I cannot continue.

I recommend that Hull-Aylmer MP Nycole Turmel continue her work as our interim leader until a permanent successor is elected.

I recommend the party hold a leadership vote as early as possible in the New Year, on approximately the same timelines as in 2003, so that our new leader has ample time to reconsolidate our team, renew our party and our program, and move forward towards the next election.

A few additional thoughts:

To other Canadians who are on journeys to defeat cancer and to live their lives, I say this: please don’t be discouraged that my own journey hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped. You must not lose your own hope. Treatments and therapies have never been better in the face of this disease. You have every reason to be optimistic, determined, and focused on the future. My only other advice is to cherish every moment with those you love at every stage of your journey, as I have done this summer.

To the members of my party: we’ve done remarkable things together in the past eight years. It has been a privilege to lead the New Democratic Party and I am most grateful for your confidence, your support, and the endless hours of volunteer commitment you have devoted to our cause. There will be those who will try to persuade you to give up our cause. But that cause is much bigger than any one leader. Answer them by recommitting with energy and determination to our work. Remember our proud history of social justice, universal health care, public pensions and making sure no one is left behind. Let’s continue to move forward. Let’s demonstrate in everything we do in the four years before us that we are ready to serve our beloved Canada as its next government.

To the members of our parliamentary caucus: I have been privileged to work with each and every one of you. Our caucus meetings were always the highlight of my week. It has been my role to ask a great deal from you. And now I am going to do so again. Canadians will be closely watching you in the months to come. Colleagues, I know you will make the tens of thousands of members of our party proud of you by demonstrating the same seamless teamwork and solidarity that has earned us the confidence of millions of Canadians in the recent election.

To my fellow Quebecers: On May 2nd, you made an historic decision. You decided that the way to replace Canada’s Conservative federal government with something better was by working together in partnership with progressive-minded Canadians across the country. You made the right decision then; it is still the right decision today; and it will be the right decision right through to the next election, when we will succeed, together. You have elected a superb team of New Democrats to Parliament. They are going to be doing remarkable things in the years to come to make this country better for us all.

To young Canadians: All my life I have worked to make things better. Hope and optimism have defined my political career, and I continue to be hopeful and optimistic about Canada. Young people have been a great source of inspiration for me. I have met and talked with so many of you about your dreams, your frustrations, and your ideas for change. More and more, you are engaging in politics because you want to change things for the better. Many of you have placed your trust in our party. As my time in political life draws to a close I want to share with you my belief in your power to change this country and this world. There are great challenges before you, from the overwhelming nature of climate change to the unfairness of an economy that excludes so many from our collective wealth, and the changes necessary to build a more inclusive and generous Canada. I believe in you. Your energy, your vision, your passion for justice are exactly what this country needs today. You need to be at the heart of our economy, our political life, and our plans for the present and the future.

And finally, to all Canadians: Canada is a great country, one of the hopes of the world. We can be a better one – a country of greater equality, justice, and opportunity. We can build a prosperous economy and a society that shares its benefits more fairly. We can look after our seniors. We can offer better futures for our children. We can do our part to save the world’s environment. We can restore our good name in the world. We can do all of these things because we finally have a party system at the national level where there are real choices; where your vote matters; where working for change can actually bring about change. In the months and years to come, New Democrats will put a compelling new alternative to you. My colleagues in our party are an impressive, committed team. Give them a careful hearing; consider the alternatives; and consider that we can be a better, fairer, more equal country by working together. Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done.

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

All my very best,
Jack Layton

The artwork looks great, you could've spent all that time and money coming up with some new features like some new super ship and like a whole new set of ships.

So you want the art company they contracted to come up with new gameplay mechanics?  I get wanting new features, but saying the new art is the reason they don't exist seems like flawed logic.

well maybe im wrong but in war you stand by your friends and help them when they are in need is that what friends are for to help one and other its the same in a game

within the rules of the game, yes.

imagine if you were both CFOs of big companies, and you needed money.  The only way for your friend to get it was to embezzle it from his company and sneak it to you.  Does your friendship justify breaking the law? No.  Similarly, friendship must still act within the bounds of the game's rules.

if helping a friend is cheating whats the point in having a alliance of friends in all battle game you should be able to help your friends and i have help player of other alliances that in its self should not be classed as cheating

The problem is, that if you make an exception for friends, then everyone who pushes will just say that they're friends.  Then there's no point in having the rule at all.

Does that mean BFG is adding wrestling? :P

Sorry, couldn't resist

Not sure if this post was to inform, or to try and generate sympathy, but either way, your suspension is 100% justified.  You cannot plan a hit that transfers resources from a worse rank to better rank player.

If someone is desperate enough to spend that much money to pad their rank then it's fine by me.  They're already paying the additional price of being that fixated on their pixels being slightly better then someone else's pixels

I gave up caring about my rank long ago.  Only way to stay sane in a game that has so many people bending so many rules

My advise is just play to have fun, and collect a few stories to share with your friends

Lol, what are your mines at now?

When i left that uni 4 months ago my mines were 33/30/xx times 9 planets. Loads of res. It was fun.

I hope the new uni / game will have good mines but perhaps not as much as extreme 2. That was maybe too much!

I started late, so I'm just getting to 33/31/xx now

the url was the only thing that gave any clues, the main site just said coming soon, and the ToS site was generic legal stuff.  So, really nothing worth worry about yet, just gotta wait and see!

It's always been obvious that Empire valued, and worked to maintain their "we're the big scary guys" image.  Just didn't realize they valued that image more then their members

Been throwing around the idea of doing a Max Payne recreation, but with, well, you know, lightsabers! (yes, I spend time thinking about this crap)

Did a quick style test, turned out ok :)
