2012 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2, Day 4

Post by DadofTwins » Thu Aug 09, 2012 12:25 pm

I received word yesterday that rjaguar3 has not been able to access the board since some time last Thursday. Once we are able to re-establish his connection, we will get the scoreboard updated.

There may also be a couple of RQ's ahead. I'm almost certain we'll do one for the "Not Very Cold" 10-pointer. There was a factual error in it, sure, but it was also a really, profoundly terrible clue. A couple of others are under review and may get RQ's as well.

We have a guest writer for the second category today. Thanks and well done, ChemTeacher.

Here's Day 4.
