All I want for Christmas is Conq's study ;) . At first I thought it was a staged background. But there is so much detail, it might be real. Or does Conq 8-) just WANT me to think its real!?!

Wow, great interview. Humble, hard working, indefatigable communicant and intimate alliance play...until the siren calls the solo at exactly the right time. Spiderman :) to boot.

Great meeting you, Conq. Thanks for another wonderful interview, FloridaMan.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.

One of the best things that ever happened to me is that I'm a woman.

All of us are stars and we deserve to twinkle.

Thank you for the positive feedback :)

As for Conq's study, I edited out the part where he told me it was actually green screen from the movie "Knives Out."

Nicely done!

Really digging how the world of Diplomacy is evolving into these different media platforms lately. Giving so much more depth to the online community.
The first quality that is needed is audacity.
