    Re: Iran's 2017 elections

    Iran is far from perfect and the Supreme Leader holds too much governing authority in my humble opinion, but I view the election of Rouhani as a generally good thing for Iran. At least Iran has...

    Re: 2017 terrorist attacks

    We should all be concerned for the events that transpired in Manchester, but I'm amazed how this doesn't get more attention. Egypt isn't that far away, is it? Both geographically and in the public...
  4. Re: TWC moderation policy on discussion regarding altering the executable files of TW games, including the 4 GB RAM patch

    That's a shame! It would make a great compromise without violating the ToS and SEGA's EULA clause.



    That is VERY good to know. Thanks for enlightening us, Gig! :D

    A few things:

    1) Erdogan was observing the fight almost the entire time and was viewing the area before the fight broke out, so that means he is almost certainly the one who initiated the fight by...
