"Greetings Rob:   Yes, Pakenham's book covers the Second Boer War, although he does discuss the First Boer War (1880-81) in passing. What I like about Pakenham's treatment is that he doesn't indulge in hand-wringing and he…"

Just wanted to say "Thank You" for your Map and Counters blog, Mr. Beard. The heart of my game collection are the SPI titles from the mid '70s through the early '80s when they went under. Your commentaries are pure gold! Wargames may have gotten prettier and more sophisticated, but, for me at any rate, that was a magical era. I count myself blessed that I was able to be a part of it. So, thank you again for your work that has inspired this old timer to revisit some old SPI favorites from a bygone age (I'll even confess to playing an occasional game of Dixie from time to time!).

Joe - Thank you for the heads up. I love the SPI Monster classics like HTTR, WaR and WiE. I'll look for a word from you in the fall then.

Thank You Joseph. If you ever want to play a wargame face to face drop me a line.

John,

       Sorry to read about your computer virus woes. I really enjoy reading your SPI Fridays Blog and feel cheated (as do many others I am sure) because of the issues.  In light of all the other advice being passed to you I would suggest getting an external hard drive to occasionally back up your data files. I say occasionally because if you do it every day you will just get the virus on it as well. I got a 250GB for $49 at wal-mart 2 years ago and it has worked out great. Sometimes viruses are just unavoidable. I got one on my wifes Mac within 1 week of ownership although once I cleaned it off I have never gotten another. The PCs get one about every other year. regards and good luck, Rob Ryan

Hi Joe,

 

Shall we communicate via e-mail?  Let me know if you have any issue downloading Zun Tzu or the WWII module.

Hi, Joseph. I didn't realize you reside in Phoenix. I guess I missed you as I lived there for quite a while until about 2005 or thereabouts.
