LOL..LG..the scary thing is that there is still sections that aren't shown in the photos of the "Church of Lead" as we call it... the whole section underneath the Gaming area plus an L shaped area that goes between the Mezzinene. It truly does take your breath away when you 1st walk into "The BOX". On weekends there in LOTs of stuff happening from Painting workshops , to Commando events, to League stuff...it is always busy in there!

I am new here, but I can't download it. Its confusing me. When I click on it, it goes to a white screen, and in little black letters it says "Your download will begin shortly". Then after that it goes to a white screen and then nothing happens. Its confusing me!! I would love to read it, and I am a big player of MW.

Let the 'white screen' remain for a bit. Its probably downloading it. Its a PDF file, and it won't show up right away. If you are still having trouble, let me know and I will get you a copy directly.

I am hoping to see someone take up the reins of AF and continue on. We had a great thing going, with a very professional loook to AF, as well as a fan base that quickly grew. It is a real shame to just let this die away with the other "BT Ezines.

Here's what I know:

pthw199, a long-time BTU member, took up issue 3 in my absence. Due to some of his own RL issues, he's been unable to get it to press.

I also know this:

I am currently piecing together a new, larger media department here on BTU. If all goes well, Argent Fire will continue on, albeit in a slightly different way. It's format is something that I think will be better for the Battletech community and beyond. Hopefuly soon, I'll have additional details to release about this, but its too early still yet.

Good news then. A lot of folks would be disappointed to see AF go away.

This is indeed good news! I still have my "network" set up, and I have people still sending me reports on the differnt events, so it wouldn't be too difficult for me to step back into my position again! AF was a passion of mine, and I am glad to hear that it will rise from the ashes once again! :wink:
