During the recent BGG upgrade and outage, I just happened to start re-reading Cornelius Ryan's, A Bridge Too Far. I started reading it at the start of the BGG outage and co-incidentlly finished it when BGG came back up.

I'm in the middle of a BGG Marketplace transaction, so I was checking the status of BGG quite frequently. As I was reading, and as I was checking in on BGG, it struck me again and again, right through the book, the apparent synchronicity between the two. It was uncanny. Thought I'd share.

Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are.

Monty would blame someone else...or claim that the BGG outage was 90% successful despite the system being down.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

It's a pity you don't read faster

Monty was good but I'm not sure he was 190% better.

Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are.

Monty was a legend in his own mind and his plans always went exactly according to battle.

Clearly, you read too slowly, too.
