Murrian, welcome aboard! Time to buy a good sword and put it in the left hand of your avatar!

I see our newcomer wasted no time in taking your advice, Salty. He is now armed with a quality cutlass! The captain of the guard had better watch his step!

Welcome aboard, Murrian.

By the way, how do you like my new look? It was time for wardrobe and appearance changes to keep life interested.

I see that you went for the native village background with straw huts. That might be a lot more comfortable than the upper floor of my Cape Cod-style house come August!

I have not been participating in the forum much lately because I am still having access problems from my work computer. The VPN works fine, but I only have it on one of my three computers, and it's the one I've been using least of late. (I can't install software on my work computer - it's locked down so tight that I can't even install a new font! And I turned off the wifi on my old XP machine a couple of years ago - it's now reserved only for gaming and image file storage.)

I had betternet on a ipad so a vpn if needed on a mobile device might allow you more easy access to here. Something like a phone you always carry instead of a desktop pc.

Alas, I don't have a smartphone. Just last year, I finally traded in my 13-year-old flip phone for a new feature phone with a slide-out keyboard so that I could join the texting revolution.

Since I spend 8-12 hours a day in front of a computer screen at work, I don't feel compelled to stay connected when I leave the office.

Have you tried using 9.9.9.9 on a home computer? Should fix your problem there.

Betternet is working fine on my home computer. The problem is my work computer - the one I use most often.

Get you a cheap tablet, something you can play games on and surf the web at work but if you get caught don't blame me. I'm just a idiot.

When you are at sea and sober, you are a terrific sailor and excellent pirate! It's only when you get a bag of gold coins and are turned loose in a Pirate Haven, then you hang out at places like the Salty Dog Tavern and drink A LOT and run upstairs with the Girls A LOT. Can't say as I blame you!

Hello everyone,

I am new to the forum and I am a huge fan of Sid Meier's Pirates. I love history, especially history of the 17th century and the history of piracy. I play other pirate related computer games and table top games.

It is a pleasure to be a part of this forum. Thanks for having me aboard.

Sven,
Welcome to Hooked on Pirates. What other pirate related computer games do you play?

Very respectfully,
fleetp

Fleetp,

Lately it has been Man-o-War Corsair, but I have spent many hours playing City Of Abandoned Ships and it's mod, Gentlemen of Fortune. I played Blood And Gold: Caribbean for a while, but the controls were wonky.

I occasionally play World Of Pirates, I like the exploration aspect, but the graphics are not great. It reminds me of the original Pirates, which was an amazing game.
