Re: Friday, July 20, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now I've gotten more steady work requiring travel, so I don't always know when or if I'll see the show every day. Congratulations on regaining full employment, even at the expense of Jeopardy watching, and sorry I spoiled FJ for you. I know it took me a second or two, but did people not catch on to...

Re: Friday, July 20, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Zergcam! Well-played, close match. Jeopardy fate is just too fickle, and Brian goes down after one victory. Again, the boards seemed pretty easy. I was sure I had Peary right, and when they revealed Brian's response of Byrd, I went "uh oh ...". Another nice pay day for the champ. And if you read thi...

Re: What was your buzzing strategy?

I will say, Nick, that one of my biggest disappointments about the old board being gone was that we didn't get a chance to discuss your games. I was sure from the run up that you were TOC-bound.

Re: About This Board

I'd change #3 to be "Merely getting to play will be one of the highlights of your existence." Do you have some way to tell real people from spambots who request memberships? How many posts does one need now to be able to start a topic? Just curious as to how these things work. Now that it's back to ...

Yes, I did know about Meredith. Actually, I remember her from her cub reporter days in Providence, which I will play up.

Re: WWTBAM Auditions?

Yes, but that doesn't address logistical issues -- need to get there really early? How long does it take? Dress nicely, I assume? Need to know about their gameplay? Those sorts of things. I'll work on charming the ladies in the meanwhile.

WWTBAM Auditions?

Can someone give me a quick rundown on what to expect? They're holding local ones on Monday, and I'm thinking of going, but really know nothing about their audition process, and I don't want to register over at the Bored. Thanks in advance.

Hmmmmm ... I thought it asked about centipedes, but maybe not. I've already wiped it from my DVR.
It was asking about the equipment manufacturer.

Re: Thursday, July 21, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILER

Whoa. Did not see that one coming. Well, I guess if both Samer and Mark had to lose, at least it was to a local. We'll have to rope Brian into our next DC Boardies meeting. A very well played match, and sorry to see both Mark and Samer go down. Samer, was it fun to say TDD? While I wouldn't call FJ ...

Re: Judges ... ?

"Chief Operati ons Officer" for "Chief Operati ng Officer"? Not common, but acceptable. I wish EBITDA was in the $2000 slot. I once had an unsophisticated client ask me about looking at the company's "Evita". It took a lot not to totally crack up. Well, Samer, to you who are about to die, we salute...

The downside was that I had to notice somebody wanted to join and get around to authorizing them, which doesn't work so well when...

Count me among those who thought the phrasing of the mutations question was dreadful. After the clue was finished, I said "What is it they're looking for?"

Congratulations again, Mark. Not as easy as the first two times, eh?

Re: About This Board

I know the admins of this board have hinted that once Sony comes back up they'll decide whether to keep this open or we move back to our original home. (I'm thinking that no matter what, things are probably going to wind up getting duplicated if both sites stay open). BTW, wanted to use this opport...
