Not from me... Not gonna have time to write Perseus by then. Maybe, just maybe next week.

(It is amazing how much small stuff appears to disrupt my plans constantly. And small stuff is enough, i need some hours without interruptions to write anything even if i have a general plan and a bunch of notes ready.)

Just finished the Blood Asp article. Should be ready for posting ASAP.

As for the Rifleman IIC, I've only just started writing it; I'd love to be able to post it before I have a nine-week absence. If I can't send it out before then (I know it'll be done by then), could someone post it for me?

I can do it as and when needed :) And I'm sure Greek Fire won't mind either :)

Not I.  Semester's coming to a close so I've been hammering out my projects and papers for school.  Sorry.

Blood Asp is ready and waiting.

EDIT; I've just posted it. It may be a little early, though - I'm working a lot (today?) and wasn't sure when I could post the article, so.

Ran some MM testing against the 'bot with the Quasit, in prep for its article, against and with some of its competitors (Raider, Arbiter, Crosscut, Rock Hound, Patron).  OMG I forgot how vicious IndustrialMech battles can be.

Saliva has a song called Click Click Boom. Industrial Mechs tweak that to their theme song, Crit Crit Boom.

I've got my Langur article in the works, with a little help and a push from another forumite. We can tentatively schedule that for Friday if you want.

I hate this 'Mech. It is difficult to write about. It has enough small flaws they start bother me a lot. It works but... man, those flaws.

Sorry. Had to get that out. As i said, will have this ready for the next week's Friday.

EDIT Cancel that last one.

The Perseus lost against the Llamas. Lacked anti-infantry/beast weapons.
Oh, well, writing about the wreck works just as well.


Seriously, writing it and not giving up. Now that i've kept some break instead of typing for hours, it doesn't feel so bad. I do need to do extensive re-writes though, to get a bit more even tone for the article and correct myself.
