Anyways, why is there a forced military service in Finland still? We used to have that in Hungary as well, but now we only have "professional military", and not forced. I think a forced military servince is absolutely pointless anyways, its a big wasting of time for the specific person, who doesnt want to be a soldier. IF we can call "forced regular soldiers" a real soldier at all, personally I wouldnt call them soldier.


*Edit*
We went a bit off-topic.

...sigh... My feelings exactly. History, group-think, and our eastern neighbour as a convenient excuse. And backwards defence policy (not an inch of land given away) which essentially requires the current method of conscription. Can't defend huge empty forests with well-paid professionals, not economical, you know.

Yup, totally off-topic, sorry. But I end my part here, the three week trip to middle Europe starts in three hours. Bratislava - Prague - Wien - Budapest, weeeeeee. Let's see whether they let me back in Finland after posting this...

Thing is, I don't need it on my permanent record that I'm mentally unstable.

Because of the reasons stated by atul, along with the fact that RUSSIANS ARE BLOODY SCARY.

Wow! I can't believe it has been about 2 years since my play with Dominions 2 started winding down.

A few times each year I would check the forums to catch any news of Dom3 and a few months back I was very excited to see it coming soon.

Got my preorder in last week and I'm ready to go. The AARs have been painful exciting and brought back a lot of memories about how great this game is.

I hope I am able to find the time for Dom3 or perhaps a better statement would be I hope I have time for my life after Dom3 comes out.

I've got a 11 week baby girl (our first) so I think that will go a long way in keeping my addictions in check.

Its great seeing some of the familiar names in the forums. I'm sure I have played with a lot of you in the past.

Any ways... I'm excited!

Take care and I will talk to you soon,
Adam

I thought that such information stays private?

Oh 11 weeks old baby. Hopefully the little one will be a Dominions 6. addict!

Beautiful! Take good care of her (and your partner). Dominions can wait.

Thanks Kristoffer!

Trust me... there is little doubt about her receiving first priority.

Here are some pics and vidoes if someone is looking for a few smiles. http://www.evilfree.com/andrea/blog/

The videos of her first dunking are particurarly precious! (in my unbiased opinion)

Nice pictures. Is it common in the US to make blogs about the family/kids? It is very rare here.
