I had new records for myself in TCA and TMP with 74 and 102 to take fourth in D1 Serengeti. First person out on promotion. Probably for the best as my numbers would have been near the bottom in C1. Staying promoted seems easier than getting promoted.

Congratulations to those at the top of A who qualified for the championships.

The LL website is currently paused while final LL88 results are being tabulated and published. Those results will be available at 2:30am PT.

Thank you for your patience.
I am not a fan of this new development. At all.
Wow it said that? I’ve never seen a time estimate before, what’s up with that? Lucky break for me, I went to bed early for once and just happened to wake up somewhere around 5:50 AM Eastern and the results were there waiting.

Pretty frequently I am there hitting refresh between 2:30 and 3:00 Eastern so that would’ve been a long wait.
Pretty sure the Commish has said that the one behavior he wishes people would alter to make his job simpler is continually hitting Refresh around 11 pm PT/2 am ET in hopes results will post.

This enlightenment endarkened me :(. Are you saying the Commish wants people to refresh impatiently, or wants them to take a chill pill. I didn't even know that late night results chasing was a thing. I'm in Central time zone, so I am happy to open the email in the morning. Late night screen time should be passive and boring. I'm finding that number theory videos work when my eyes are too tired to read.

I finished with a new personal record TMP (83) and was one correct answer short of a personal best for TCA. Finished 9th in Foundry E so there I will stay for LL89, 2 points out of 5th. The top 5 who made the promotion zone really outclassed the rest of us so I had no chance to get back to D level this time around.

12/12 on NASA! My first ever sweep of a one day.
I knew I wasn't going to place, VAB felt too lucky a guess for me to drop money on, but -Shepard- was money worthy?! Come on...

Bugatti was terrible negbait for Porsche in Transportation. :D "Name survives as a luxury brand in the VW group?" Check!
Also, EV1 scored that low too?! Geeze...
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

That fact about Porsche creating the earliest electric car came up in OQL Pop Solos this past season.

Re: the "Improv" 1DS, I had a mental block on the name "Upright Citizen's Brigade" and actually slept on the questions, hoping it would come to me. And then when it finally did the next morning, it turned out to not even be right for Q8.

Also, I put down Del Close for both Q3 and Q4, but then I moneyed the one that indicated the correct answer was a woman. More like, "No, And" am I right!
