Didn't quite catch Sue today -1 second in it -slow wireless connection here in the Lakes

It snowed here last night - beautiful view of Helvellyn in the sunlight earlier.

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

In case anyone's wondering - I HAVE played today but the blasted site has lost my answers and times even though it keeps telling me I played today and can't play again till tomorrow!

I think I'm allowed to grumble about this, haven't let off steam here for a while. Just when I've built up a decent lead the thing goes and stabs me in the back yet again.

I played and submitted my answers, but when I went back to the front page my name wasn't there. Went back to the answer page and the time was still going! Submitted again, still didn't appear in the listing, back to the answer page, time STILL going! Then the answer page and the question page disappeared altogether but it still says I have played when I try to play again!

The annoying thing is I got ten right! These things always seem to happen when I'm doing well.

I've just had the she-itey week to end all she-itey weeks and this just about puts the tin lid on it. And the bloomin swear word detector won't let me write what I really want to write there. And I thought Friday the thirteenth was yesterday!

Well it looks like I will have to untwist my knickers and eat a bit of humble pie as I have been back to the quiz site and my name has finally appeared but with a score of only 7 which is what it was before I changed three of them. Don't know why I had all that aggro with the ongoing times which I posted about above but it doesn't do my blood pressure any good!

I hope my rant will be forgiven - I really have had an awful week.

What is there to forgive...let off steam...it won't scald anyone

Friday the 13th is past - you can't blame it on that.

My month has been awful quiz-wise, mostly, that's life -things can only get better!

Just seem to get frowned on when I grumble.

Actually Friday was one of the better days in my week from hell - and it was mainly a good week as far as the quiz is concerned. It was just a pretty wretched week in other ways.

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Weird day today at the quiz - thought I'd done badly yet again but it seems I've just been beaten by one second so far. Can people really be considered Celebrities if no-one seems to have heard of them?

We'll see if anyone gets more than 6...

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Just been on the quiz site to find that although Mancie scored 10 his time was over 400 seconds. There is clearly a problem here as Dave and I have both found, though not to quite such a devastating effect, this week.

It looks as though I may be top tonight in the cumulative scores though I can't say it gives me any pleasure if it's achieved this way at the expense of others. Mind you, I have also been in Mancie's position with a time of over an hour!

BTW where are you Rindy?

As a form of secondary protest, in sympathy for Mancie, we could all put down our mouse, stage a walk-out and boycott the Trivia Quiz

Or would we risk prosecution - I have a sneaky feeling sympathy strikes were out-lawed by a certain Lady PM in the 1980's...

Hadn't a clue on today's quiz -so much of American TV - never watch it -better luck tomorrow maybe. Well done SteveR -could be a win with 8!

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Well, it happened to me today -wouldn't let me submit and I went really fast....damnation. When it finally took the answers it came up as 100 seconds -but on the list after it said 96! Oh well -it's been a pretty poor month in any case....

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Just wondered if anyone is as fed up with the current set of categories as I am. They are very limited in scope and rigid in pattern. I seem to remember that previously we had a wider range of subjects and levels of difficulty in what seemed like a more random pattern. Just looking at the quizzes on offer in the open section of the funtrivia site there are subjects such as literature, world, humanities, religion, hobbies (mainly food and drink), science, and several more, at varying levels of difficuty.

Would it be a good idea to find out if we can broaden the scope of our quiz a bit? Interested to know what anyone thinks. We seem to have dropped a few players recently so a fresh look might be a good thing.
