There's a blog (which I think are complete wastes of time) called War and Game warandgame.wordpress.com , which anyone could access at one time and had some great articles about everything wargaming and historical. Lately, though, it seems like it's being locked out to the general public, and you have to be a member of the blog to access it. And even when you do that, you STILL can't access the blasted thing!

Anyone else having the same problem?

I doubt it's a "member" thing, but rather that the owner has managed to hose up his access. And I don't really agree about the quality of the "articles"; most everything I ever noticed there was lifted from somewhere else on the Internet.

I'm sure that's true, Allen. Who knows – maybe someone else will "lift" the articles he lifted and they'll be accessable again.

You can use the wayback machine archive.org to get to some older versions circa 2008. The indexing is screwed up though. It look several clicks to finally get a working page:

HOpe it works.

Why bother?

Thanks, Joe. It's just giving me the basic, bland page now, plus I can't download any of the graphics. Oh well.

Fellas, it looks like the same guy has the same blog at the following address:

warandgame.info

The Wordpress address is certainly a problem, though, since you HAVE to be a member to read it, but in trying to access that particular blog and files, your computer runs the risk of "freezing-up", which mine has. In a word, Wordpress is "JUNK", and not worth signing up for. I may just e-mail the guy and let him know his Wordpress site is inaccessible, which doesn't look like it's his fault.

Thanks for all the help, fellas!
