Paul is under the weather right now, laid up with his back. He probably won't be able to do too much for a few weeks. As for the losses (and I lost considerable resources), I look at them as natural disasters that we must recover from. In real life there would be storms, earthquakes, fires and many other disaters. Everyone has lost out so it's really no harm no foul. We just have to keep on keepin' on just like one would do in real life.
Ya'll drive safe and come back soon.
