It was in the process of being stickied when you posted this. I tried to do it, but there seems to be a problem with the mod powers. Sooo, asked SR to do it.

28 seconds! Yeah, right! If you're going to cheat, kids, then what's the point in anyone else playing. Any more of this and I will boycott the trivia tourney.

Has anyone else had a problem today? The test kept rolling and took me a while to somehow mark the correct answers. It was tough trying to get the test to stay still long enough to read it. I'm not sure if it's my mouse or there was a temporary glitch in the system.

I've never had that happen before. It's not our program, something that Phillygirl long ago sponsored.

Enjoy doing it daily as it's a good little brain game, at least teaches to try to skim the question quickly to get past the extraneous stuff and see what they're really asking. Of course mess up sometimes by trying to go too fast. :biggrin-new:

Hey you've got to start again, even if you beat me most of the time. Don't worry about one day's score. I've been doing it to just keep up the old reflexes. It's cheaper (free) than those memory programs they're hawking on TV.

Today is the start of the new month. Come back, you're missed, you're a good player.

How about more joining the game? It's fun, it's free, it's a good mental exercise--sometime. Otherwise sometimes it's kind of stupid, but for free, can't beat it.

Maybe later but the scoring appeared to be severely bent towards the benefit of one particular player for too many different days.

I've tried figuring it out. The closest I can come to the placement is the number of points for each score, even if 3 people, for example, have the same # (3 or 4 or whatever). It also seems to favor whoever plays first. There can 2 be identical scores, but whoever got there first goes up.

It doesn't matter that much anyway. I'm just doing it to keep up my reflexes and memory. I've become quite humble lately.:biggrin-new:
