if you are using the old version you could have someone TD the 2nd nic for you. We don't have a provision yet for aliased nicks on version2 yet.

I am eager to see if you can resolve that issue for me before I can fully endorse the new version. I could support the annual fees, but not 2x over (not counting my wife's account).

The only solution is to only use the new version on One nic in that case. The old version still works.

I don't know when if ever we'll have support for multiple nics sharing the same items and membership. Its kinda ripe for abuse, so its gonna take some pondering and dev time.

Maybe then a free nic just for tourney admins & hosts then? I can't see myself playing normal games in my 1TOP Sailor nic. We're even discouraged from using it to play in tourney on nights we don't host.

Guess as long as the old client remains active, I can use the new version for Sailing_Away and the old for 1TOP Sailor on hosting nights.... no problem.
