Re: J-Archive Web Scraper

^ Like Please don't scrape the Archive. Aside from the simple matter of being respectful to the archivists who spend a lot of time to input the data, there are controls built into the server that I have no control over that may blacklist you. I then have to go through the rigmarole to address blackl...

Re: Kelly standing in for Johnny Gilbert

When I appeared in late 2009 it was already common for Johnny to miss tapings and to have to re-record intros on returning to work. I was grateful that he was in and healthy on my tape day (and pronounced my name right on the first try). I also recall, on watching some tapings from the other side of...

Kelly standing in for Johnny Gilbert

On Facebook Kelly Miyahara reports she has begun standing in for Johnny as announcer. Would it be wrong to fear that at the age of 94 Johnny has given his last introduction?

Re: Etiquette question

For historical organization purposes it's much better, IMO, if all discussions pertinent to a game go in the thread for that game, if such thread exists. The "New old" games thread is generally for really old games that predate JBoard (and, for the most part, any Jeopardy! Internet discussion forum,...

Re: OT: does anyone know where this tower is?

Google Maps doesn't have a 3-D model of this structure but if you position yourself just right you can get a fairly good perspective view.

On a hunch I used Google Maps to scan Pyongyan...

Re: Wednesday, October 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Just as influential in the slasher genre as the correct Final response, but on the other end of the quality spectrum, is Blood Feast (1963) . Anyone who thinks the correct response was innovative in its summary disposal of the protagonist during a hotel stop before the end of the first act should ch...
