Statistically it was a draw between Orudge and myself but the final say in such instances goes to the Hall Of Fame listing which put him in the number 1 spot. Well done Orudge !! Your choice of categories for the coming month.

To the remainder of the community I can only echo the sentiment. The more players we have the more fun the competition and the better the overall scoring. As some advert once said "You've got to be in it to win it." Play everyday and you will have that chance.

Well, I think for this month I'll leave the categories as they are. We shall see how things go!

Too bad! I finally have 10/10 questions correct but someone beat me in the amount of seconds used. I think my use of a notebook with touchpath mouse control reduces my answering speed.
It takes either 1 train with 8 carriages or 500 cars to move 1000 people. Simple math.

Feckbuckets, I forgot the quiz yesterday. Still in second place though, but no chance of overtaking Nite_Owl now unless he forgets to play a couple of times! It seems that both Badger and as also forgot to play one day this month, so we're kind of competing amongst ourselves!

And today I got the exact same number of seconds (and correct answers) as Griff, but came 2nd, aww.

Some of us have had a lot of practice. ;)

I remember back in mid-09 a number of us (including myself) seemed rather surprised at how quickly and how well Bluddenguttz tended to do. Nowadays, of course, we're all doing similarly!

Extremely easy questions today. I was sure of 9 of them, and felt rather confident on the tenth one (some bloke's last name on that Home Improvement show)

And you have a small advantage. I have to read it on English, translate it in my head, think of an answer, re-translate it on English... :lol:

Well, practice, practice, practice... :lol:

I can bet that if there were a Croatian quiz, you'd beat me in that one. ;)

Ugh, the quiz server is being very slow today. Shall leave it a few hours perhaps and see if it's better later. Of course, I potentially run the risk of it getting even worse when America wakes up, but then again, when America wakes up, their technicians may wake up too and fix the problems!

EDIT (15:28): Great, now all I get is an "Internal Server Error"!

Not slow, dead slow. I answered (OK, I had several wrong), clicked "submit" and then waited for almost a minute before it has taken my answers. And then I see it has added that waiting time. Nice.

Woud it be possible to cancel today's game and results? Some may not play due to this "server error".

I'm not aware of there being any way to do that. Unfortunately, I can't actually check it either due to the fact the site is down!

That's my point. It's not fair that i.e. I have played in the morning while some others can't because of the server.

Indeed. Well, as I say, there may be nothing I can do about it, unfortunately. This game will run until 6am GMT tomorrow, but I won't be up that early. I'm hoping it'll come back in the next 5 hours. D:

EDIT: The main site now says:
It appears that one of our main servers is having some serious problems and may need to be replaced. Uncertain how long we may be unavailable.
At this rate there may be no quiz tomorrow either. May have to be a fresh start next month!

EDIT 2 (19:35):
Update: we are making some progress. Fingers crossed that we can be up and running over the next 2-3 hours.

So, the site's back. My time is impressive, though... looks like it picked up my attempted play (no page actually loaded) 8 hours ago. Shame, I'd be first if it weren't for the time.
