Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

For what it's worth, I was able to get and confirm tickets for the 10:15 am taping on Wednesday, November 20 today. They had previously been unavailable as of a week ago.

Re: The End of the SHC?

So after much consideration, I've decided not to run the Summer Hiatus Challenge myself this year. Given my other responsibilities, I don't have the time (or interest) to write 30 to 50 categories as I've done in previous years. If there is somebody or a group that wants to run the SHC (or a smaller...

Re: The End of the SHC?

I've been a bit busy with my job, but I've been working on some questions for this year (although I'm a bit behind the pace I'd like to be). I'd like to have a 15th edition this year. However, given my other responsibilities, the 2019 SHC may be shorter or a different format than previous years. If ...

Re: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Just caught up on the episode.

I was a bit disappointed that Carol wagered so small that she had zero chance of winning against a rational wager by Dylan. :(

Re: Software Upgrade

For multiple-answer polls, the total votes (and the percentages using them) are the total number of options selected, not the number of distinct voters. Still? Robert fixed it and it looks fine to me now. I noticed the issue after voting (when the results were displayed). On reloading the page, the...

Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Medal ceremony

We've come to the end of the fourteenth annual Summer Hiatus Challenge. It's hard to believe how the seven weeks have flown right by! First of all, I want to thank DadofTwins for creating the SHC and running it brilliantly for ten years. When MarkBarrett asked me in June 2015 whether I'd be willing ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--TOC Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I answered Jonathan Lippe on the Most Interesting Man in the World because I couldn't remember what Gold... name he currently uses; Lippe (his stepfather's name) is what he used early in his career (I've seen him credited as Lippe on Gunsmoke and Bonanza multiple times). Hope that's okay. Jonathan ...
