Gents:

I am playing the 2-day Talevera scenario as Allied. At night of the first day, all of the British forces became "fixed" for the night -- with a release of 4am. No other armies (French or Spanish) became fixed. Is this a design flaw or did the designer have something in mind? It really puts the Allied player at a disadvantage. I keep hearing the French general repositioning his forces waiting for the dawn and Wellington has to just sit in place.

I think the scenario reflects the historical situation. The British sat back having their tiffin, whilst the frogs sneaked around in the dark. I prefer the unfixed version of the 2 day scenario.

Bill,

Good luck in your new place. You certainly deserve it.

Certain we all here appreciate what you have done and are still doing for us.

I live and work in a garage. No car in here with me .. just boxes and other junk my great aunt wont toss away.

Have my comfortable bed, pc is set up on a Rubbermaid two tier service cart. Both LCD panels set up on a piece of plywood atop the cart.

Its a bachelor's lifestyle for sure. I was in the military so I adapt well to a Spartan environment.

I get a lot of work done here and without the threat of a sudden move as I had back at the old place it puts my mind more at ease too.
