Sorry, no new game to add to the Archive. Just a story.

Today at church two gentlemen were visiting. I had a chance to chat with them for friendly conversation during a potluck lunch. One, is a TV meteorologist for local KRON, John Shrable. The other gentleman, Charles McBride (visiting from Casper, Wyoming), was on J! in June 1988: http://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=10644

They knew nothing of the J! Archive, so it was fun when John used his phone to access the site and I directed him how to find the game with Charles. John then read Charles clues from his game and we enjoyed playing along with some of them. Even though Charles and John are friends going back years, John had no idea that Charles had appeared on J!

My past of being on J! had no chance to be kept secret or sprung as the pastor's husband had made it known early in introductions.

Now that I am home it was nice to find that the game was still on DM, so that I could see what Charles looked like 30 years ago.

San Francisco has a population over 850,000 yet it can be a small town with surprising coincidences sometimes.

I waved the white flag and filled in the rest of 3/1/02: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1445

All of the links should work.

I spoke to someone a while ago (Robert Knecht Schmidt? can't remember for sure) about updating my March 1992 games, esp. now that I have DVDs for them all. But that was a year or more ago. Is there a way I can put together the data to get my other games into the archive? Just let me know. :)

Well, I'd be happy to do it, if you're patient, and I bet Mark Barrett would enjoy a break from his monthy entering of the media-heavy 2002 games he's been doing. PM either or both of us with what you're suggesting.

And thanks for making your games available. Many (much? most?) of those early games in the Archive are thanks to players like you making them available to us.

http://users.rcn.com/thomst/jpardy.html - This link has the Final Jeopardy! clues for the champion that Robert defeated in his first game, Thom Stark. Stark's first appearance was March 20, 1992, after Phil Yellman retired with $60K. :)

What were the results for Thom's games (and I mean his previous two ones that he won)?

(I stand corrected, Phil Yellman won $60,400 in his five game run from March 13-19, 1992.)
