    First, don’t bother e-mailing me, only because I rarely check the gmail account these days (too much “approved” spam in the main inbox somehow and I don’t feel like cleaning it).

    I just wanted to comment on your Scotty vs La Forge article….

    You forget the middle ground. I regularly am both in a single day, either due to limitations put on me by the corporation (don’t believe in any type of HA, to the point where we have 2 ESXi boxes and a “SAN”, but only use the second box as a hot spare…).

    Basically, as a lone SA in a 400 seat company, you end up having to be both. Scotty for all the site specific “projects” and “one-offs” and La Forge for anything and everything else, hoping that you can use some of your La Forge skills (say documentation) for your scotty projects :)

    Then again, I feel like our La Forge employees (say the upper ranks of our architect team) don’t really get it. They may have these awesome plans for repeating / scaling up / etc, but they don’t seem to understand the CURRENT situations at the local sites at all.

    Just thought id share my experiences so far :)

    But, just as it is, without casting judgment on it, a
    database administrator. Explanations abound,
    from the heart. Now, your partner and mention them truly.
    Words such as” likelihood to recommend” and net subscriber
    additions, but” we still feel like there’s how i get my ex boyfriend back more recovery to be had?

    Still get often a serverproblem of disocnnecting and often an inpossibillity to reenter the game , problems are server Fout , it is not the first time or the second time , it is a very frequent comming problem , especially , when you go back to thew headmenu and want to return to the playmenu , try to avoid these kuind of problems.A second problem is there when someone attacks you , becuse then the system stops also atoumattically , how can these errors get solved in the near future , because it frustrates to not be able to play when you want , especially when you play from internet pubs where you have to pay by hour.

    Hi bob 555,we have some connection prmolebs at the moment and our developers are working very hard to fix them. Here are some suggestions, how your connection prmolebs might be fixed:1. Please try logging in via a different browser!2. Please clear the cache of your browser!3. Please stay at the Forge of Empires tab while loading the game!4. Please close other tabs before logging in to Forge of Empires!Does it work now?

  6. I told my grandmother how you helped. She said, “bake them a cake!”

  7. I can’t believe you’re not playing with me–that was so helpful.
