Agreed. SRTCG's timing system is very simple. Whoever's turn it is
goes first. So to use Archie effectively in this method, you'd have to
chose a particular runner and turn them some time before the Shadowrun
phase (and obvioulsy after the refresh phase).

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
