There will never be an Iron Saint (ooh, although I do like the sound of that!  Sounds like some extremely painful Medieval torture device!)

Never say never, especially when cool titles are at stake!  :D

Rest assured.  The only thing that will prevent another Iron Texan victory will be the shititude of dialupness in these here parts.  I demand that IM5 be postponed until next Saturday, when I will have DSL.

My plan to deny his connection is working!  :pirate

Say, Bons, what's your IP address? ;)

Ah, you are wily, Andyr, but not wily enough! I learned from the Iron Pirate's first defeat, and now I have a backup connection, plus a backup-backup connection. Not that I've planned, or anything.

I too have a plan, pieced together from my own experience and reconnaisance I've gathered from my enemies.

1) Do not sleep in.  Sleeping, while a preferred state of existance for your typical Ding0 (and Iron Pirate, too), is not conducive to making mods.
2) Juice is the fuel of the competent Iron Modder.  Spilling it on the keyboard in a panic optional.  Not recommended.  I don't have clumsy llama hooves, though, so this should be no problem.
3) As mentioned previously, have a connection with a backup.  If one lives two blocks from an internet cafe, use that to one's advantage.
4) Cheap gags and WeiDU time-saving commands rule the day.
5) New areas are not your friend.
6) Bribe the chairman and judges.
7) If you have a nice hat, and lose, do not give it to the victors in an attempt at being sportsmanlike.  It will only haunt you.
8 ) I must imagine the same applies for sunglasses.

And now, without further ado, I'm off to bed.  Arr!

Or when school holidays begin and I can stay up late for this. ;D

...sailing the wide accountancy..

For this heinously criminal pun, you are going to be first on my list of contestants to mercilessly annihilate.  I've even had the crew reinforce the keel of my ship just for this occasion.

Edit: Although now I realise you're not going to be a contestant.  In this case, consider yourself to be an honourary casualty in Ghreyfain's glorious wake.

Ahh, how I love the modesty and sportsmanship inherent in the Iron Modder competitions.
