As long as we're reminiscing, I'll throw in EMACS.
Let's not get started on editor wars. They're just as tiresome as OS wars (FTR, I used emacs back in the day, too)

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/11/2019 - Monday TOC (SPOILERS)

If you had a computer in your school in the 80s, you at least heard OF all those older languages - FORTRAN, PASCAL, C, C+, BASIC. We played around with BASIC and LOGO - I still think of programs as having line numbers like when using BASIC on my old Apple //c, and I remember drawing with the on-scr...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/8/2019 - Friday TOC (SPOILERS)

For the first time this week, I got all the Lach trash. It still wasn’t enough to even come close to winning from the 4th podium, though.

Impressive win by Francois. Another easy-peasy FJ.

I get to start off LL 83 with a double bomtr, getting him in both A Cont and the private Rundle. Oh, joy! :mrgreen:

H-bomb beat me to it. I confidently expected a triple get and was left aghast at the answers. The boards weren’t too hard tonight and Emma put in the second-most dominant performance so far. Can’t wait to see how things shake out tomorrow.

Re: LL83: Learned League

The rundles are closed now - both public and private. You can see your schedule now on the main LL page. The person who has won A Magnolia several times, and beat me like a rented mule for years, isn't playing this sesson. The weird thing is that our head-to-head record has been wiped from the reco...

Re: Wednesday, November 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yup, hardest boards of the TOC to me, coupled to the toughest FJ so far. James was up to the challenge, though, and showed that his buzzer dominance extends to TOC-level competition. I too knew who they were looking for but couldn’t pull her name.

Re: Tuesday, November 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This quiz has two errors. Nashville, TN is NOT one of the correct answers, as even the information above the quiz proper points out. And Columbia, SC is omitted as a correct answer. Columbia should replace Nashville. No, the quiz is correct on both counts. That article is out of date. The problem i...

Tonight’s boards felt easier to me than last nights. I felt for you, Rob, as I could see your mounting frustration. Another easy FJ, too.

I was mildly surprised that Anneke, after pulling the Hanseatic League, blanked on the Battle of Marathon, a WECIB for me. More Lach trash than I’m accustomed to in a TOC: Nixon, Bequerel, von Braun, Hamburger Hill are the ones I recall.

As I stated on FB, I, a non-Christian, managed to get FJ right because I had earlier looked up the meaning of Pentecost after missing an earlier J! question about it. My biggest gripe was with the photo shiitake that they used: it looked nothing like the shiitakes that I regularly buy at the store. ...

Anyway... I've lived in CA most of my life, and would consider Lassen to be at the north end of the Sierra rather than in the Cascades. Apparently, geographers disagree. Lassen is well West of the Sierras. It's E of Redding. ETA: Maybe I should have looked at a map rather than relying on memory :oo...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Et Are mini-leagues scored by Thorsten, or by the smith(s)? I thought Thorsten did all the scoring I think he does too, but it's based solely on rules provided by the smiths so it's not always as forgiving/generous as an LL match. I would think Thorsten as the scoring is automatic, then the wrong an...
