Which effectively put me out of the running for the championship.

My 1DS is live for the next day or so (Just Audio: Familiar Songs).

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Monday, 3 May 2021 17:41 (two years ago) link

cool, will play tonight!

Draymond is "Mr Dumpy" (forksclovetofu), Monday, 3 May 2021 18:07 (two years ago) link

I played and enjoyed. Made an unforced error though.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 19:45 (two years ago) link

As I also did on Outlaw Country, where it really cost me.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 19:47 (two years ago) link

Greg, yours is literally the only one today that I can MAYBE get one right!

Tahini Coates (Leee), Monday, 3 May 2021 21:32 (two years ago) link

You didn't try Neo-Noir?

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 21:42 (two years ago) link

I submitted every one except Greg's.

Tahini Coates (Leee), Monday, 3 May 2021 21:43 (two years ago) link

On another note, I am finding out it’s actually not bad to play along with a(n) ML that one is not registered in. No need to worry about wagering, for one thing.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 22:24 (two years ago) link

Interesting that only Greg and I did Outlaw Country.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 22:33 (two years ago) link

I generally try to do every pop music 1DS

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Monday, 3 May 2021 22:57 (two years ago) link

Makes sense. I just noticed that I guy I recently became acquainted with seems to do every single 1DS. Seems to be somewhat excessive imho.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 3 May 2021 23:21 (two years ago) link

Waiting to see how I did on Greg's and a few others. Mine goes live tomorrow, I am a bit nervous.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 17:02 (two years ago) link

The thing about doing a ton of 1DSes is that it gives additional information for your opponents on how to defend you.

Tahini Coates (Leee), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 17:19 (two years ago) link

Does it go into the statistics?

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 17:24 (two years ago) link

No, but the more dedicated defenders can click through to your profile and see your full 1DS history, which might feasibly help on certain questions.

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 17:49 (two years ago) link

It’s (a)live!

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 09:33 (two years ago) link

Greg, did you send your testers a PM thank you as well as thanking them in the recap?

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:39 (two years ago) link

Anyway, y'all come on and come and play my Isaac Newton 1DS if you feel it is in your wheelhouse.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:51 (two years ago) link

Shocked that your last name isn’t Redd or even Blecch

Clara Lemlich stan account (silby), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:53 (two years ago) link

Heh

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 14:05 (two years ago) link

Okay, I've recently gone north of 200 submissions so I can die young, stay pretty and you can bury me happy. Well, um, anyway, I think you catch my drift.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 15:31 (two years ago) link

I have never PM'd to thank testers except once or twice for a couple of testers who really went above and beyond, but a lot of people have mentioned on the message boards that they like it. I test for a lot of 1DS's myself and it's pretty rare to get any messages from the smith.

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 15:41 (two years ago) link

I did it just now. I received a bunch of these but they were very formal, which was still sort of nice. I tried to make it informal and I sent it right today
as a reminder in case they want to look at the actual contest.

Newton > Joyce shockah!

Tahini Coates (Leee), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:26 (two years ago) link

Tell you why later.

^Redd's Law

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:36 (two years ago) link

Wait, silby, I just noticed your alma mater.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:40 (two years ago) link

And?

Clara Lemlich stan account (silby), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:49 (two years ago) link

I spent a summer there once.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:55 (two years ago) link

Which I believe has something to do with the current campus speed limit.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:55 (two years ago) link

Ah you did the math camp?

Clara Lemlich stan account (silby), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:55 (two years ago) link

You know it. Everybody did back in the day, except for the greatest of us all.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:57 (two years ago) link

I just went there and got a degree in something. I’m not so good at math.

Clara Lemlich stan account (silby), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 19:27 (two years ago) link

The worst math camper better at math than most Hampshire students probably, which is funny

Clara Lemlich stan account (silby), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 19:27 (two years ago) link

Heh, one of the student teachers was a Hampshire student. He had a bit different angle.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 19:35 (two years ago) link

There were a bunch of other summer things going on at the same time, Feldenkrais camp, drum majorettes, you name it.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 19:36 (two years ago) link

...and another Top 20, barely, finish, in Classic Reggae Music.

4 out of 12 on the Ike Newtie quiz!

Tahini Coates (Leee), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 21:04 (two years ago) link

Did I tell you about Tony Orlando and the Brill Building?

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 21:12 (two years ago) link

Sorry, wrong quiz.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 21:12 (two years ago) link

Oh, good anonymization there, Leee!

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 21:12 (two years ago) link

May I ask you what your usual threshold is for submitting?

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:06 (two years ago) link

Also want to remark upon some midpoint lull in submissions.

A Stop at Quilloughby (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:06 (two years ago) link

Looking back at my recent performance, I seem to be hovering around 6 where I can at least enter a reasonable (if not the correct) answer, though I played the Islam one despite only getting 3 correct.

My moneying has been disastrous though.
