It's scheduled to start this weekend but haven't had Barry's email yet however, thread now in place last years can slide.
kathy

Severo

Nolte

gerry12ie

MAILLOT JAUNE

A miserable 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will try harder next time - trying to watch the El Alamein programme at same time (well, that's my excuse anyway).
Slapshot 3

15
SlowRower

One successful guess, but otherwise, quizzing much better than riding at the moment.
kathy

10 this week - don't like those quickfire things, and I didn't understand the question to start with Laughing
MAILLOT JAUNE

9 for me. Bit better than last week.
gerry12ie

Pah 12
Nolte

10 this week. must say plenty of educated guessess.
SlowRower

13. Lots of educated and a few lucky guesses.
MAILLOT JAUNE

Got 10 this week - not too bad considering one question was for 5 points !!!
Nolte

ouch, 3 this week. i started well,,,,,,
kathy

Well, after last week's disaster - phone interruption and did it in about 10 seconds flat! - I got 12 this week, on things I wouldn't have thought I knew much about - perhaps the research for our own little quiz in the Coffee Lounge is beginning to pay off Laughing
MAILLOT JAUNE

A very disappointing 7!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sad
MAILLOT JAUNE

An amazingly inspired 15!!!!!!! Yipppeeeeee!!!!!! Just hope I can continue at the same level............
MAILLOT JAUNE

And normal service is resumed!!!!! 6 out of 15. Pathetic.  Crying or Very sad
kathy

I got 8 this week Crying or Very sad
kathy

Things are looking up this week  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

MAILLOT JAUNE

Well done kathy - it's a good feeling! Only got 12 this week, but most of it is guesswork for me.
Slapshot 3

Dead easy this one, all the questions have been used in the last three years or so even the last with a different wording
kathy

slapshot!  Just because I got it all right, there's no need to say it was dead easy Laughing   Nothing is dead easy for me Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

THAT mon ami was being diplomatic, can't stick them but have to be diplomatic......She's a "sociologist" and has the only fecking opinion that's allowed.....SOOOOOOO pissed off!!
gerry12ie

Come on SS, get off the fence!
Biosphere

Hmmmm, and Schleck the minor gets called a whiner?  Wink
Nolte

for last weeks, i got 15. 2 50 50's in this but i knew q4.
i got 11 on todays.

So annoyed mate, it was on this year, I was having that title but not now... Unconsolable!!
kathy

Come one, everyone else is at least 5 points behing you  - you've lost only 4 - so you're still ahead!

Feliz Navidad!
Fontfroide

Kathy is right.  Quit whining.  You da man.

"Pick yourself up and start all over again."  Us more humble folk are right behind you.

Although I do sympathise.  My wife called me at a crucial moment one day recently.  I screamed "I am doing the quiz!"  But she knows nothing about "the quiz" and questioned me about why I was shouting at her.  Mood gone.  Missed two sitters in a row, as I thought my time was running out.  

Hey, that's cycling (quizzes).
berck

gerry12ie

Be like Lance, SS - open up that suitcase of courage and soldier on... Laughing

I was reading all day Christmas Day .... putting in the hard pages..;0)
kathy

All my research into our own little quiz is paying off - plus getting a subject I know something about Laughing   15 this week - from a happy bunny on her birthday!
gerry12ie

Well done Kathy, and Happy Birthday.  I did both today and got 20 and 15 so I'm chuffed as well!
kathy

Well, let's face it (before Slapshot says so! Laughing ), today's was easy!
Slapshot 3

Happy Birthday for yesterday Kathy... I haven't looked at it yet but did see the scores coming in last night....might have dodged a wee bomb there!!
kathy

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Gerry and Slapshot.  I've just discovered that I'm third now in the JC standings, behind you two of course!

Slapshot, this week's was a doddle -even for me!

gerry12ie

Damn!  15 in the first January one and then got interrupted in the second one so only got 12 on the knobblies  Twisted Evil
bbnaz

Enjoy being the almost lantern rouge as it keeps me apprised of the folks here.

2013 resolution is to stop by more often and see how things are jangling in here.

Cheers to all!
Slapshot 3

Hi Betsy hope you're well..... Knobblies??? Cyclocross....oh dear!!
bbnaz

Thanks!  Thought of a lot of you when I was at Flanders and Roubaix last spring. So much fun there.
kathy

Hi Betsy!
Nolte

hi bbnaz Smile


did the two quizzes for the first 2 weeks in january.
positively i got 13. negatively that was my combined total of the two.
8 in the first one and 5 in the second one.
fair dues to Barry about todays ones. It'll be interesting to see the scores in it although what i would say is a monkey would have probably done better than me in it but than again i am devolved from them so it's not surprising. Very Happy

hmmmm 13 didn't fancy the thought of that before i started....I was right!!
kathy

I usually like the rapid fire ones - but not this one.  I think I knew two of them, and finally ended up guessing for 8 points!
bbnaz

Hell I am continually impressed as I am with all of your knowledge.
Slapshot 3

Hmm that was tricky Q4 especially.......good guess though
kathy

I scored 10 - pretty pleased with that!
MAILLOT JAUNE

Nice one kathy.

I don't want to talk about my score!!!!!!!!  Crying or Very sad
Nolte

it could be worse. it could be what i've got on it

-----
now i have done it, i got 7.
well question 4 was one i remember clearly so that helped.
MAILLOT JAUNE

Dunno what everyone's results are, but did you only get Q1 correct???? I can only assume that by getting 2, it was due to my answering Q2 correctly and they were all, totally, uneducated guesses..................

I knew Q4 as well - why did Slapshot think it was tricky? Wink

Yes, MJ, the only way you can get 2 is by answering Q2 correctly and getting all the others wrong.  I can't remember Q1 offhand.  I have always done this quiz too quickly and am trying to force myself to use the time allowed.  This week I deliberated so long, I didn't even have time to answer Q5!

Cos he couldnt remember the answer!!!
Q1 was the Year, q2 the interesting finish
bbnaz

groan

well at least it wasn't a goose egg (but damn close) Razz
kathy

9 this week - mainly educated guesses, I think!
MAILLOT JAUNE

Managed a 10 this week (note that I'm rarely mentioning the less than 10 scores nowadays).
Think I must've got the last one wrong! D'Oh! That would've given me 15 if I'd got it right
gerry12ie

Yep 10 too.  I made an arse of the last question, I knew the answer (I think we even had it in our little quiz?) but clicked on the wrong option Rolling Eyes
MAILLOT JAUNE

Anybody having trouble with opening this week's quiz. I keep getting " Page cannot be found" message when I click on Quiz 14 (and the others)????
kathy

I never try until I've received the email, and it hasn't come yet, so probably not posted.
MAILLOT JAUNE

The email has arrived, Barry sent early on Friday 1st Feb, as he has travel commitments.
He's maybe messed up the links in his haste to get the quiz emailed - easily done!
Slapshot 3

Question page not opening up!!
MAILLOT JAUNE

It's back up and running again. Although, after my score, I wish I hadn't bothered  Rolling Eyes
kathy

Me too, but I thought I got Q5 correct?
Nolte

got 8 today which means i got 2 & 5 probably.
kathy

Glad you're not doing my accounts, Nolte.  2 and 5 would give you 7 Laughing
Nolte

kathy wrote:

yes there'd be an overclaim of expenses Very Happy.
i'd say i should have had the word wrong at the end of the sentence Very Happy

today i got 11.
kathy

Just done Quiz 16 - it was a repeated one, but  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing  - should put 15 there but can't be bothered!
MAILLOT JAUNE

Can't believe I only got 11 - must check out the answers as I thought I knew them all. Got mixed up with the 2 Riks. The quick-fire element always makes me nervous!
Nolte

got 13.
i had the same problem with the Riks.

it's just a shame my question earlier this month wasn't a rehearsal for this round Very Happy
Slapshot 3

Well, the JC League is up for grabs this year, I've emailed Barry withdrawing because I can't get access to the pop-up question page on any of the IT platforms we have access to down here. Pity but that's life I suppose, work comes first.......Good Luck for the rest of the quiz folks!

That's a shame!  Reckon you would have won the whole thing this year!
gerry12ie

Aw, that sucks!  Still, you can take the moral victory SS.




*A bit like my flawed hero...
Fontfroide

Sorry about that, I wondered what the zeroes were.  I was hoping you might win the whole shebang.  

Must be budget cuts.
Slapshot 3

Just military IT in action, not a lot I can do about it... in action....or inaction...take your pick!!
Slapshot 3

Well, Barry has offered me a solution to the enable me to finish the quiz this year so unless you folks have any objection I'll take him up on that...
gerry12ie

Moral victory my arse Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Did you think about it for more than one minute?

Why waste all that geeky reading and an still young memory?

Go for it.

A couple of emails back and forward as I didn't want to break the integrity of the quizmaster or the quiz itself, so I suppose yeah took a few minutes of considered thought!!
kathy

Damn!  Got the last question wrong this week!
Nolte

11. i'm happy with that.
Fontfroide

I missed the date by a year.  Same result as Nolte.
kathy

This week, some of my research for our own little quiz really paid off Very Happy

I got 14 - wonder which one I got wrong?

I've just found out.....
kathy

15 this week - very easy!
Nolte

13 last week

15 this week. i did stutter on one question
gerry12ie

I finished with a disastrous 5 - but the important thing is GO ON SLAPSHOT!
Fontfroide

While I totally agree with you Gerry, I still regret forgetting to do one quiz totally, just blew it.  I might have made the podium and beaten that Welsh woman in Spain, thus obtaining massive glory.  Still regularity and discipline should count for something.  Maybe she did know a few things I didn't.  

Wait til next year.

And I quietly satisfied that Slapshot won the whole thing.  And quietly satisfied that Barry found a way to allow Slapshot to participate from the Falklands.  A good show all around.
kathy

Well, this week was a disaster!  Hopefully, I'm still third!  Horrid questions!
kathy

Many Congratulations, Donald!  Several years of trying, but a well-deserved win at last!
Nolte

i got 3. well continuing my form of this season Very Happy

anyway, it's great to see slapshot on top and congratulations Smile
