I finished just below the promotion zone in my C rundle after hovering above that line for a little while. But the bloom has been off the rose for a while now so no biggie.

I managed to escape relegation, so I'm happy with that. I just checked, and my rundle had the highest QPct across all of LL (.797). Which means I had a bunch of matches where I thought I did pretty well, but my opponent did just a bit better.

jaymc, Thursday, 24 September 2020 18:58 (three years ago) link

best finish ever -- second, behind the fucker who won for the fourth time -- and finally made the tourney. fortunately our QPct was nowhere near that of jaymc's rundle

mookieproof, Thursday, 24 September 2020 19:39 (three years ago) link

My QPct is one correct question from being division-average, so my actual performance mostly ended up matching my Pythagorean.

that's the guy who invented the steam engine, right?

With his nine pound hammer and anvil, yeah.

I learned a lot of people paid more attention in Sunday school than I did

I've been doing pretty well in this current crop of One Days by finishing above the median on almost all of them, and the one where I wasn't I was in the 43rd %ile. My usual milieu has been in 20s-30s.

Kicking myself for forgetting to sign up for the Presidents in Pop Culture ML, which seems like it'd be in my wheelhouse.

jaymc, Friday, 2 October 2020 02:13 (three years ago) link

it's pretty good, more challenging than I expected so far

Looks like my branch has been moved to a new league for next season: Sakura.

jaymc, Thursday, 8 October 2020 17:13 (three years ago) link

Cherry Blossom Time!

She Thinks I Will Dare (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 8 October 2020 17:45 (three years ago) link

I do prefer the name Sakura (which I voted for along with Wakanda) over Keystone, so that's fun!

Fisherman's Worf (Leee), Thursday, 8 October 2020 18:55 (three years ago) link

I actually find it interesting to track you guys once in a while since most of you are in the same division, hope that’s not crepey.

She Thinks I Will Dare (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 8 October 2020 19:02 (three years ago) link

n/a has a match against KosmanJ tomorrow!

Garu’s Got a Rona (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 15 October 2020 03:46 (three years ago) link

Maybe I shouldn't even say that, according to one of jaymc's earlier posts, sorry.

Garu’s Got a Rona (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 15 October 2020 03:53 (three years ago) link

i didn't even know that was somebody. their pop music get rate is not great so maybe i can pull it out.

na (NA), Thursday, 15 October 2020 13:27 (three years ago) link

If anyone needs to send someone a referral, lmk - I have one to use.

He’s the classical music critic out of SF and namesake of the Kosman Koin.

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 16 October 2020 05:32 (three years ago) link

A (the?) classical music critic for the SF Chronicle and SFGate

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 16 October 2020 05:42 (three years ago) link

Partly worried that I breaking a rule saying even that, but even if in this case it is not too bad, I will tread carefully.

Did you guys receive the 60s Music ML notification on time on Thursday?

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 17 October 2020 13:29 (three years ago) link

Faulkner 1DS looks intriguing.

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 17 October 2020 16:26 (three years ago) link

i have notched two forfeit wins in the 60s music minileague

mookieproof, Saturday, 17 October 2020 18:12 (three years ago) link

I have benefited from some generous scoring and a ton of luck in the STUFF ML, where I'm currently in fourth but which I expect to fall from very quickly.

I did the Faulkner ODS and finished at a VERY pedestrian 39th %ile.

I did the Faulkner ODS and finished at a VERY pedestrian 39th %ile.

I got 44% but would have gotten 80% if I had monied properly. (Do you guys know how to check that?) Also went for the long money with the Portable editor but bet on the wrong horse.

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 19 October 2020 21:16 (three years ago) link

(Do you guys know how to check that?)

Yeah, just click on the ME tab under Results.

I want to luhbahguh babum gum (Leee), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 04:37 (three years ago) link

Yes. I noticed it a while back. Wondering when it first appeared.

I overthought and put IRON VALKYRIE instead of IRON MAIDEN but still won 8(5)-6(5)

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 06:09 (three years ago) link

Fuck me for stupidly writing “kick beats”, i know better. Otherwise, yeah 8 5

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 06:18 (three years ago) link

The only one I didn't get was Mountain King and I lost, apparently I was up against a metalhead.

I think about a year ago, maybe? Someone had created a Chrome extension that showed it, and Thorsten must've thought it was worth incorporating into the site.

jaymc, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 16:32 (three years ago) link

Somebody drank the beer.

Here Comes a Slightly Irregular (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 23 October 2020 06:49 (three years ago) link

Wait you were in the finals?

Spiral "Scratch" Starecase (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 31 October 2020 13:31 (three years ago) link

Oh, I see, I think. Not too bad really.

Spiral "Scratch" Starecase (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 31 October 2020 14:51 (three years ago) link

at least i didn't have to worry too much about picking money questions!

mookieproof, Saturday, 31 October 2020 22:20 (three years ago) link

Hey we're doing a one day special!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Saturday, 31 October 2020 22:26 (three years ago) link

Really? Congrats. I just looked and didn’t notice you there. I did see a few other ILX0rs though.

Spiral "Scratch" Starecase (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 1 November 2020 00:17 (three years ago) link
