Re: Poll on JBoard's linking behavior

If I want to open in a new window, I can do it myself. There's no need for the web site to do it for me. It's usually what I do anyway : then, I can just click on the programmed wheel button that closes the current window. And I do not need to wait for the page to reload, which is what happens when ...

Re: Friday, May 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A web page is nothing but a file containing coding instructions. The file is stored on a computer. So, technically, "file" is correct. Now to be sure the writers knew that is another matter entirely. If they didn't, it is a badly written clue. P.S. Not a web expert, but I was a computer gal. P.p.s s...

Re: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yes, well, the distinction between Canadian provinces and territories may mean a lot to Alex and our neighbors up north, but frankly, I've never seen a particularly good explanation of it. I'd love to have someone explain it clearly on the board. Besides which, I was under the mistaken impression t...

"Found after IP or e-mail, it's also the place you live". I said "domain". Would they have accepted it? After all, you can live on a domain (if you're rich enough)... Being an expert on IP, email and domains, I'd tend to agree, except a domain is not found after IP, but instead of it Brian Yes, you...

As in "Master of One's Domain?" :D


It might be that I'm thinking too much in French :(

Am I the only one who thought "Who is the "Great Bird of the Galaxy"?"
instead of Roddenberry?
Wonder if they would have accepted it...

Got FJ after a few seconds of reflection. ;-)

About the worst week ever.
I might have had the Belize/Costa Rica one, but I was spoiled by visiting the forum before viewing the show :-(

Re: Online Test Discussion (Pacific), January 19, 2012

28/50 on this one.

For me, the categories on pop music, pop culture and English litt (American or British or even Canadian) are the stumbling blocks.

Didn't expect to pass, but it's good to know where one stands ;-/

Re: Online Test Discussion (Central), January 18, 2012

Only 18 on this one ;-(

Of course, I never "studied" for Jeopardy...

Two things I'm not sure of : I said "pensee" for the flower; and I answered "Curie Pierre et Marie" for the Nobel one.

The French took over.

Ah well, it was fun anyway!

Good luck to everyone!

I was floored that J! would ask about Les Iles de la Madeleine (even spotted "Mad"), even moreso when Julia actually got the response. dhkendall, weren't you just saying that there's never a clue about Canada that isn't easy for a Canadian? I think that would qualify! (Looking at the archive, I now...

I got FJ! Not instaget, and wasn't entirely certain, but was pretty comfortable with it once I thought of it.. (It helps that I really like Bobby McFerrin - I have a cd of his of classical music that in some pieces, he takes the part of, for instance, the cello. It's beautiful.) Another FJ I would ...

Re: Thursday, December 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another FJ I would never have gotten.

Because I didn't know the song was considered "a capella".

In my mind, if there are musical instruments, it's not.

Just demonstrates my ignorance, I guess :-(
