Barbara Lowe was a 5-timer, so I assume she'd get the label. Those games are one of my current "holy grails".

Re: J!-Archive

When I was working on the TOC stats earlier I noticed the 6/28/11 game was not completed in the archive. Are there many like that from this season or does that game have some kind of problem? I can't recall what may have been mentioned through the archivists hotline. I think it may have just gotten...

Go ahead and post any links you find. I've got a serious backlog going on right now, but one of these days I'll get caught up.

Thanks again.

Re: SHC Round 2 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

In case anyone is interested, the set of clues I wrote for today (Day 5) was inspired by seeing the 10-point clue's name in a crossword puzzle. It was harder than I thought it would be to come up with 4 more people to fit the category.

This archivist is always interested. Thanks for posting, as usual. We may have a bit of work trying to figure the date of this one.

If any archivist is interested, I ran across this on you tube. It is original TOC finalist Bruce Fauman's third game. The on screen tag from GSN says it aired in March 1985, but does not give the exact date and it is not in the archive, but perhaps someone knows the dates of his run. http://youtu.b...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Also, wikipedia says that Walter Chrysler was Man of the Year in 1928, not 1929. TIME's list of winners on their website appears to be down right now, so I don't know how accurate wikipedia is. Hmmm ... His page states 1929, but the "Man of the Year" page shows 1928. ETA: OK, I checked the Time web...
