I have had to switch browsers to even get to the forums. It has been 2 weeks since I just returned from an extended stay off the game, but then as I was just building up some speed, an update arrived. Goodbye again, it seemed, as soon as logged in, I found I could no longer get the patcher to fuilly d/l! I remain hopeful, though. Hope I can get going again on the game itself. Here's to luck. <flicks fingernail against side of glass and raises iit> Trying it once again....
