After a bit of begging from Cheweydog and myself, we have started to form up DC team. Just for fun on the Telstra Game Arena Ladder while we get used to things going a wee bit faster.
So sign up at the official posting in our War Trenches Private forum
Ok, so NOW there are plans :lol:

That's an American dictionary that you're looking up, isnt' it?
The Oxford lists pretty much the same things for "humour"
The first line does say:
Well, all i get trying to look at the Trenches forums is:
"Sorry but only users granted special access can read topics in this forum"
So, what can i do to become that special ?
Try again mate, you should have access to the private forums (except the DC one, that's not configured up yet).
Well I am am an American What other dictionary is there? :twisted:
Last time I looked you guys spoke English - probably "The Oxford English Dictionary" would be a good starting point
Early retirement !
Sorry guys, but i've become a DIC so i can't be a TOG as well.
I've send a message to Father to that effect, but i'm shure we'll meet on a Battlefield near you eventually.
Thanks for all the welcomes, but DC means a lot to me as a game.
Shure to meet some of you in my crosshairs.
No worries mate, I received your PM as well. DIC are a great bunch of guys and we'll be sure to have some fun games with you along the way - you'll just be shooting at us instead of us shooting you...no..wait! :roll:
Like the Philosiphers of old thinking that the Earth was the center of the universe, Americans think that they are the center of the universe, and that everyone else should follow them.
BTW - Though I have lived in Oz most of my life, I was born in the States and therefore feel I have a right to put my countrymen down.
However I tend to prefer the American spellings, when one types and spells as badly as I do, you need to save all the keystrokes you can
We ARE the center of the universe...just ask me!
I want to write my own dictionary...I've always thought that the current spelling of a number of words was utterly retarded....
Night = nite
write, right = rite
