^ "O Death" is an old Southern Gospel song, there are quite a few versions out there. I agree that Ralph Stanley's a capella performance of the song is the most chilling and stirring.

No, but they will cover the medical hazards of charging headlong at giants with rotating arms...

Outlines are out.

There are several music pieces that we have had before, unfortunately including the Banshee...that is not my favorite.  But there is lots of good stuff too.

You got that Adagio for Strings, required music for every slow-motion climatic death of a main character, especially so if that character is a member of a unit in the armed forces.

If you have your download link, the resource guides have been posted.  I'm digging the wide range of the history guide.

Also, lots more color pictures in the guides than usual, I think.  I hope they print reasonably well in gray scale.

Yes, I am in the same situation. Sent a phone message and email. I hope for a response by tomorrow.

Hello USAD,

It's called an "email distribution list", perhaps you've heard of it? It allows you to send the same message to lots of people at once. You can even customize the message with something called "mail merge". It's quite cool. All the kids in the 90s are using it!
