In that case, I always cheat <grin>. The way I write orders is more
of a reminder to myself how I wanted everything to move, than actual
orders. And yes, I have several times decided to send a ship in
vaguely that direction, seen where the enemy ships move to, and still
moved it in vaguely that direction when just a few degrees more would
put him in range of my wave gun.

Should I be keeping quiet about my 'fuzzy' measurements as well then?
(hey! I'm a roleplayer not a wargamer. Rules are just there to be
approximated :) ).

Be seeing you,
