Windows 10 has a built in screen recorder. Windows Key + G to bring it up. Which probably doesn't help you. But maybe it does, or maybe it helps somebody else.
Actually, Windows-Alt-R starts/stops recording.

Is anyone familiar with SmileOtter? I started getting trivia emails from them every day. I don't remember signing up for anything from them, but it is possible. And who is behind it other than "Matt"?

While watching tonight’s episode of Chain Reaction, there was an answer on the show called “Reynolds Wrap”. I have never heard of that term before. Apparently, it is another term for aluminum foil? At least that is what it said when I looked it up. Is it like an old terminology or a brand new terminology?

It is a brand of aluminum foil.

The 5-18-21 game had a clue about Reynolds Wrap. "A" MATERIAL for $400 in the DJ round. You gave yourself credit for a correct response.

How many staffers must have come across the Q before it made it to air? :roll:

Naturally Jay & Kevin weren't sharp enough to spot it. The contestants answered Alabama and the game moved along.

The local news coverage here is terrible. Our state capital moved and nobody mentioned it.

It was the original state capital (and some might still debate that it is ...).

It is home to the most important person in the state.

Maybe he was trying to escape the notorious sexual depravity of the Adélie community. He should be granted temporary asylum while they look into this.

Japan’s Pokémon Center Online is going to release a life-sized [four foot tall] Lucario plush toy. It is priced at 46,200 yen ($403), which, I guess, is a fair price for an enormous Pokémon plushie.

Robert K S wrote: Fri Oct 15, 2021 1:20 pm As just one example, all or virtually all of Season 26 was off-kilter because of the Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational quarterfinals which were aired interspersed throughout the season. I was a victim of the "Monday" curse despite my losing show being the fourth to tape of the day (right after lunch). Various other scheduling issues over the years resulted in nonstandard tape dates that were not Monday-Friday. I don't know if they ever (or often) tape six shows a day, but especially during Alex's years-long illness, it was common for them to tape fewer than five.
Circling back to this:

Yes, Season 26 was off-kilter, but the show, as a rule, would still attempt to tape 5 a day as much as was possible. Season 27 would have been knocked off-kilter by the Watson games, but that's the last instance of things being knocked off kilter until October 2020.

I also dispute the assertion that it was common for them to tape fewer than five. As far as I've been able to tell, the only taping where Alex didn't go 5 since his diagnosis was his very last week of episodes.

I seem to remember multiple contestants saying taping weeks were broken up into 2 and 3 games. Not that it’s a valid source, but Wikipedia states this started in 2019.

But I’ll wager others here can link contestant’s posts from reddit and elsewhere supporting this.
