Anncouncing...
Total Quiz XIII

Thursday October 26
12 PM (Noon) North America East Coast and default Server Time
6 PM Central Europe
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Total Quiz is a contest held every 3 months in which participants attempt to answer some very interesting questions about history. If you've never played in a TQ, be sure to not miss this one!

The first round will be 48 hours - if there are any unanswered questions after that, a second 24 hour round will follow.

You can read Rules, Policies, ... forum_posts.asp?TID=108&PN=1 - Here

This edition of the TQ will be special in that most questions are written by Poirot. Poirot has really written some very interesting questions that should make this quiz particularly fun.

Well, its not 6pm on Thursday here yet so I highly doubt is is in central europe. Unless the world started spinning the other way and no-one noticed.
I guess its about 24hrs until the quiz. Or at least, until I can do the quiz.

Yes, now I realize that the Quiz was to be held on Thursday... it is Thursday 5:55 AM here right now...

so that is where the mistake came in.

if you win, you get bragging rights and a signature just like mine. Well, if you think you can beat the Canadian super-duo (me and Dawn), then by all means play. I suggest you take a look at some of the older quizes and try to do them yourself. They're not easy, trust me.

Is there a specific reason why Allah would want you to win?

Well, maybe you can give him something to do for the time?Big smile

Like convince his boss, that overtime is what he needs right now and that computer is bad to the eyes or whatever...

or you may just say that due to health reasons, you should keep out of the quiz.

Where did the old forum go anyway?

The old forum is hidden as a subforum in AE Meeting hall, and is now marked as "Archive." It was done to save some space.

Also, another change is that I've written a new sophisticated script to run the TQ that will be used for the first time, so hopefully that will work out too.

41 minutes to go. I hope your systems ar ready.

[If I have calculated the date and time correct now...]
