Software Upgrade

Since I have time on my hands, sometime over the next few days, I will be upgrading the software to the latest PHPBB version. Hopefully the downtime will be minimal, but please don't panic if the site is unavailable during this maintenance period.

Re: Learned League 84

I got five out of six right, missing the Ramones question. I knew the Paul McCartney question because I knew he recorded "Mary Had A Little Lamb". By the way, McCartney recorded that as a protest because the BBC had banned playing his previous single, "Give Ireland Back to the Irish". Give Ireland ...

Thanks for the links. I'm always glad to see Mary Ann prevailing over Ginger :). Now where the hell are my Artemus Ward novels? :lol:
I had posted this on Facebook a few weeks ago (before the world went to hell):

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Altogether I have to say this was a weak game and a poor field of contestants. The middle man snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. His performance on the 2 Daily Doubles was thoroughly unimpressive. We look forward to your impressive performance that we can all laud. (Seriously; keep in mind t...

Any chance of someone posting a gif of Leanne's reaction after Alex said "underwear bomber"? It's clue 28 in the J! round.
Just a still shot:

Notable Coronavirus Deaths

Sad as it may be, there are already quite a few to fill in. Ellis Marsalis, 85, New Orleans jazz musician better known as the father of jazz musicians Wynton and Branford Marsalis. Many years ago, I was invited to a small party at a convention, and his trio was the entertainment. Everyone else was b...

Call letters was a dream category for me, at least for TV stations. There are probably very few people in the country that know more TV call letters than me. I know the major radio ones, but there are just too many of those to know a good portion of them.

Was expecting something tricky for FJ such as West Africa or Pacific islands. The actual FJ was instaget for me. :mrgreen:
With a category of Western Hemisphere Geography, those would have been tricky indeed.

Got FJ but only had 90% certainty because I wasn't absolutely sure that Guatemala was farther north than Honduras. But went the right way.

Instaget FJ. My daily commute takes me past the spot where Allende's Defense Minister, Orlando Letellier, was assassinated by a car bomb (also killed was his assistant, Ronni Moffitt) under the orders of the Pinochet regime. I was supposed to be doing work that includes the SNL studios starting in M...

Re: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wouldn’t say it was close to Q-Anon. From what little I have read about it, it sounds like a bunch of really nutty people that wear tin hats and are rather racist. The Mandela effect is just stupid. It was this part of IronHorse's description that caused my to think it was like Q-Anon: "and depen...
