Somehow, I've played 934 out of 932 available quizzes, and I have eleven left (other than those I crested myself). Not bad! I'm playing quizzes that don't exist!

Hey, I have my sights set on second place in the standings... (I've given up on first, makebeleaffan is so far out in front it's not even funny... s/he knows a whole lot more about boy bands than I do, I guess!)

Actually, we had a major meltdown at work two weeks ago that stopped everything in its tracks, so I had nothing to do for days on end... I caught up to everything that was posted then, and I've just been following along ever since.

xterminal, if you keep going at this pace, you will probably end up being #1. What a good competitive spirit you have. Lots of luck!!!!!

Oh yeah, and the other thing... not only have I now played 954 out of 952 or something like that (oops, I'm falling behind! Too busy listening to March Madness, I went 14/16 yesterday-- woo hoo!), but now, instead of Trivia King or Trivia Guru, that ranks me as... visitor! (From another planet, maybe...)

Ain't no way I'm gonna make #1. Makebeleaffan is something like 6,000 points ahead of me. I'm running for second money.

xterminal, the other day I did a search on something in AltaVista (I can't remember what it was) but I came upon your site. I just clicked on the URL in your post and I remembered that it was the exact same place I had been the other day. Isn't that cool? Do you play in a band, and if so what instrument do you play?

If you came across my site, that must have been a rather interesting search term... I'm not just in the band, I _am_ the band. (Name of the band, of course, is XTerminal) It's computer-generated noise, using a program called Audiomulch (www.audiomulch.com). Just put out a demo CD-R to friends, intimates, and labels to see if there's any interest in a recording contract; the first copies will be distributed tomorrow night. Samples of the stuff can be found at www.mp3.com/xterminal.

Actually, they won by a point... now, if I can only get my heart back in my chest! (After 20 games, I've picked 17 correctly... looks like the first-round office pool will be coming right into my pocket)

'games played' on the main page is an estimate, and isnt entirely accurate because it has to be done fast. The 'total games played' by everyone should be entirely accurate.

The main page includes games you have played that are no longer online, which is why it's possible to have more games played than are currently online.
