I was about the defend PTG and say he wasn't as bad as he made out.  Especially as the old softie made a thread especially for me with a lovely Aston picture... but no!  Having read further and got to the 50p comment I won't!!!!!!!!

Not that it effects me - I don't own it.  Is still officially in my dad's name until later this year ... so ner ner ner ner ner!!!!!

And now I will rise above it all and attempt to grow up.  Maybe see you Friday

Being a late arrival into the quiz room last year, its interesting to know how people in the past have got on.

As to last night......more luck than skill although I think SteveO and I were both having trouble typing.  

As to next week ...... I have only just got over the last quiz I thought up!  Have to think about this one over the next few days and will post some clues later in the week

     I say old chap i appear to have been missed off your spreadsheet. i was the proud winner of the last quiz in 2010!!

Never mind,i enjoyed being QM lastnight and was presently surprised at how well behaved everyone was (very few teddies!!)

I would like to think that it was down to my excellent stewardship, but alas not, i had supped that many bottles of Newcastle Broon prior to the quiz i could hardly see the screen!

Anway well done Liz (W album) 11 points indeed, terrific.

PS If anyone mentions the Newcastle V Stevenage score please pick a window !!

The winner was Teadaemon with 7 points, followed closely by Goodfortune 5, then on 4 was arthur 99.
Tied on 3 was jaguar, ptg, charlie then tied on 2 garmarg, dave birch, jojo66. Finally on 1 were lindandy (correctly spelt?) pizza lover and rondonay.

Girls 1 V Boys 1 so we are tied at the moment after two quizes!!!

  On behalf of Liz, I'm sure you are extremely welcome (I know, there's too many "Liz" and "Lis" names to contend with).

It was a really good quiz wasn't it?  Plenty of problems, a few teddies at the ready, my complete lack of knowledge of Shakespeare's plays about Tudor kings (those Tudors were just upstarts), all combined for a lot of fun.

That Teadeamon Dan has and absolutely encyclopedic brain and quick fingers to go with it.

See you next week.

  Easily done with so many Lizes, Lises and Lisas

Those with technical knowledge - is there a way to investigate this problem on the chat room.

I was minding my own business, watching the correct answers come in and all of a sudden in round 4 just as I wanted to correct the fact that I hadn't noticed that Charlie had got the answer correct first and yes I could see her then, it all went pear shaped.  I kept typing, hitting the send key/return key and nothing happened. I had lost the plot.  Refresh got me back in and all I could initially see was 7 names.  Not the best situation when you are quiz master.  Slightly improved as others went in and out and back in again but it did make life difficult.

If you are a contestant well, its just part of the fun but as QM it wasn't so funny.

Glad we got to the end without too many teddies flying though

  It is indeed my shout.

Had a fairly rough week, so I'm still currently working on questions, but I should get there by 8:30 tonight.

Currently I have the following round titles:

round 1: January 21st

round 2: Explorers and Exploration

round 3: Sport

rounds 4 and 5: your guess is as good as mine at the moment Smile


Teadaemon    -- Jan-21-2011 @ 8:17 PM
  Ok, I have a quiz, but due to my rather knackered state it's 23 questions in four rounds (although a fair proportion of those have more than one point attached). Round titles are:

21st January

Explorers and Exploration

A short intermission

Sport

The Internet (very loosely)

See everyone there, if the chatroom behaves and I can stay awake long enough. Smile

  I didn't have any problems this week or last.
I'm on Firefox.

Things seemed to go well last night until half time. Perhaps the chatroom gets confused when folks go off for empty and refill.

How much side-chatting goes on? I wonder if that has an effect.

I wonder if it would help to bounce the chatroom some time on a Friday afternoon?



w-album    -- Jan-22-2011 @ 12:09 PM
  I didn't have any problems last night nor any other week apart from last week when I was the QM!!!! (ah yes there was another time but I can't remember whether I saw everyone when I came back in)

What happened to me was that I had just posted a comment with regard to a question, wanted to add another comment and it wouldn't send at all.  Nothing happened so I had to refresh and come back in.  That was when the problems started and I could only see about 1/2 the audience.

After drinkie top up break all I could see was 8 people!

  Well I have to say I found last night's quiz just entirely hysterical!!!  As you say, the problems seemed to start after the break.  Could only see half the people, at first was seeing some (?) of the answers so decided to make up the questions.  Suddenly, in the middle of nothing, I saw a comment by Dan, which I answered, but that was the only posting by him I saw (a bit weird that).  

Just SO funny.  Well done Dan and congratulations Steve.  By the way, what was the last round called?

(Shan't be changing my signature though to include last night because of course I would have won if I hadn't been booted out, seeing as I had a great big duck egg of points up to half time!)

and the runner up was Lisa (Goodfortune) with 6. Well done to all who took part and thanks for not chucking too many toy bears at the QM.

  Ahem....

Mike 7 points, Lisa 6, and if I'd thrown a teddy a bit more forcibly when I got the same correct answer at the same time as the winner, it would have been even stevens and of course the tie-break might have been mine!

Hurrah the girls!  14 points by 3.5 (yes 3.5) women a remarkably high percentage.

(and I just like doing the quiz so not bothered by the result)

  Compared to you Grendel, I agree 4'8" could be considered 0.5, but in fact I was thinking of Fiona "Fidear45" since Martin owned up she got the "skimmed milk" question.

The foot op for which I've rearranged my life from the 9th February has been brought forward to the 2nd.

However, that does mean two things.

1. I have to cancel my dental extraction set for the 2nd (yahoo!) and

2. I have to cancel my plans for friday night so I'll be at the quiz!!!

Hurrah!

However, us ladies can't be letting the boys think that they are running away with it so early in the year, so am gonna have to play.  

Can't promise full concentration though  Playful Wink  and if the Welsh win the rugby match then the chat room censor is going to have to come out to play.     Evil Grin

Round four - For the girls
Round five - For the kids
Round six - The Norfolk Broads


Rounds two and four are open to everyone, but contain questions which are stereotypically aimed at the said gender. Will be interestng to see if the girls get any of the boys' questions and vice versa.

And as for round five - well I think that covers most of the quizzers!

  Apologies for having to interupt the quiz last Friday, but the information gained was invaluable.

I'm in the process of upgrading the software for the chat room, and making a few 'tweeks'. So the odds are that it will be a total disaster this Friday.

But if I do things right it should reduce some of the problems that have been seen with 'lag', and members vanishing.

Unfortunatly I'm going to have to SWAG a lot of the performance settings, and I won't know if I've got it right until there is a full load. But if anyone wants to help out with the testing this week please let me know, and when they would be available.

TIA

  Wide ranging quiz tonight with Fidear as the QM, thank you very much for a good evening, no teddies were required, lol.  

Charlie won the day, well done to her, she's a clever Miss isn't she?

And not just a clever Miss but a gracious one.  Having won not just tonight but more than once recently, she reliquished QM duties to me.  Lovely thing to do and SternMoor and I will be setting something for next week.

Subjects as soon as decided but SternMoor said to say "all questions will be on obscure places/events in the US".  Maybe one round...

A pre-quiz question...can anyone tell me which US state has the lovely place to swim called The Blue Hole?  (clue: it's in a place with the same name as a type of plum extensively sold in UK supermarkets.)Possibly more than one Blue Hole, but the air kiss goes to the one we've swum in and SternMoor dived into. Ah, memories of youth!

Cheers 'till next week,

I must admit I spent all week chuckling to myself over the owl and the pussycat as an answer to a literature question.
Lisa got the answer I anticipated she would get (Grasmere)but then failed miserably with the slam dunk question of the hotel...Obvious answers are often so hard to see.

And Mike, this time its not pubs so you, being so abstemious, will not be penalised!   Reckon that clever Teadaemon (with his new toy) will still get the points though.

They're not too difficult so the number one quiz nerd of 2010 should manage OK.  There are no Aston or Broom questions either so no teddies needed from the various factions.

See you all there

Arthur


8.30 FRIDAY          ALL ARE WELCOME

Should all be in with a chance this week Mike.  Although recently I have been finding that someone seems to answer the question before I even finish reading it. LOL

Could not really leave out the AR Round. people seem to expect it if I ever set the questions.

Some of the anagrams are quite interesting.

see you there

  Dear Sue

Both you and I share a birthdate, 6th is such a good day.
As a consequence I will be celebrating my brithday by taking middle child(13 yrs old male) to the NBA game at the O2 arena on saturday evening preceded by a night out in Londaon on Friday culminating in a meal at the hardrock cafe (don't worry we have queue jumping passes)

Fiona is taking smallest child (10 yrs old -last week male) for his birthday trip to York to the national railway museum the Jorvik viking centre and museum and a horrible histories play at the York Theatre.

Consequently neither of us will be available to participate in the quiz from Arthur.. And I am sure it will be a fine quiz.

Eldest child (15yrs female) is having a sleep over at a friends house over the weekend.  

Nana will be dog sitting...

Good luck to all and have fun ... I will be....

  Dear Arthur and all the other March birthdays, I wish you many happy returns (to the quiz of course!).  Have wonderful days with those you love most doing that which you love most.

I worked it out on my fingers during last week's quiz, nine months previous to these many March birthdays is the traditional wedding month of June.  Your parents were quick off the mark, lol.

Can't wait for the quiz...it's been a pretty horrific week at work and I'm ready to let my (admittedly short) hair down.

  Hi Paul,

Last time I had the opportunity of hosting a  quiz I asked questions about the London and South Western.  This time its the Great Western.  Working on that basis I will eventually get to the LNER should I have another opportunity of hosting the quiz.

Still, at least you talk about proper locomotives.  IE Steam Locomotives.  In fact I must agree with you about the A4 pacifics.  Magnificent Locos.

Hope you will be there tomorrow.

  Mike, it looks like your teddy is laying eggs as it flies by.
I managed the second half of the quiz last night, missing the AR round that I might have actually got some points on, this was due to the conflict of a rare clear night combined with our astronomy clubs public observing evening - the first one since october that has actually taken place as the others were all cancelled due to clouds or rain. Still this meant that last night I had 2 great evenings, one with my astronomer friends showing the wonders of the skies, and the second here on the quiz.
Thanks Arthur a great quiz from the half I saw.

  I got into the quiz late last night, I forgot it was Friday (see what happens when you get older?). Just a few quick questions, the answers are on here somewhere probably, but I can't find them.
When you are in the chat room, how do you stop all the beeping and squawking as you type, I tried muting all the options in the sound set up, but resorted to turning off my computer sound in the end. And how do you get back to the main forum when you leave chat? When I left, I was back in the desktop, not connected to the internet.

I just turn off the sound on my laptop, to be honest I generally keep it off as it's a laptop I use for work.

And I generally open a tab with the Forum then open another to go into chat.

However, I have a question also...how does it happen that people occasionally log in with usernames that are not their usernames on the Forum?  Abraham Lincoln springs to mind, as does JonnyW....mmmm.... JonnyW....  LOL

  Hi Graham,

Re viking centre and railway museum. 14 yrs ago I partcipated in a professional training course residentially based in an hotel in York for 13 weeks  over something like 20 months travelling up from daaaan souuf every sixth Sunday or so. (with a break for summer) so I am very familiar with the lovely city of York. The wife is a yorkie (by heritage not birth) and the youngest loves history so a perfect birthday treat for him.
I love the place and have spent many a happy week there... ahhh those were the days...

  Is teddy throwing only for the ladies, or can I join in? I still have "Mavis" although she only has one eye attached, and not much fur, most of it being passed through my younger self, I fear. She never did fly well, if I recall correctly, mostly being dropped discreetly over the edge of the pram. I was a placid child.

  Mike,

Thanks for the teddy-throwing rules and etiquette. However on explaining all this to Mavis , she has come up with some quite outrageous demands, including a crash helmet, knee and elbow pads, front and side impact air-bags, and a pre-quiz collision damage waiver, in case she might end up in the television. Management (me) could not agree these terms, so she demanded to be returned to the spare bedroom wardrobe, to continue the sulk she started in 1956, when I dumped her for Muffin the Mule. I was forced to accede to her demands, as she said she was privy to some embarrassing details of my private adolescent life which might have found their way on to Twitter. I'm not sure what she's on about, but I'm not taking any chances. So there'll be no teddy throwing from me tomorrow.

  Should be there Martin.

Like Mike, I  also have a fair knowledge of gibberish.

Somehow think its going to be a zero week for me though.  I seem to have done something to my right hand and whilst I have not had too much of a problem writing left handed for the last few days, typing one handed I am finding a nightmare.

Even if I know the answers I dont think I will be able to type them quickly enough.

Anyway I would not miss the banter and teddy throwing so will see you on friday.

  Apologies to all for the late arrival of the topics. I was busy typing them into the word document I copied and pasted them into the chat room from (which is why they weren't in CAPS)
The woodie questions were done late and my son had a sleep over with two friends for his Birthday (he was ten)I was trying to be too many things, chef- he requested home made quarter pounders (special recipe)and giant fries (large potato cut into fours),then the quiz master and simply ran out of time, apologies to everyone...

I hope it did not spoil anyone's enjoyment of the quiz. Thanks to Fiona for the nice topic ideas though, made a change from sport to have cooking questions she thought.

  UN Resolution 1066(c)(section 8)(sub-sectionIV)(and all that) states that from this Friday, a no-Teddy fly zone will be enforced over the Chat Room. This will be known as Operation Ted, and be under command of Regulo, the International Director-In-charge, Op Ted. (IDIOT). The IDIOT will have use of a surveillance aircraft the PLONCK (Plastic Lancaster Only Never Completed Kit), and a ground force of CHUMPS (Chewed Hopelessly Unstable Model Plastic Soldiers). The IDIOT has already deployed a spotting force of Limbless Action Men (Expeditionary Division) Under Captain Kirk, the LAMEDUCKs. These brave boys, operating behind enemy lines, have sent information back to the IDIOT, as to whose prams are threatening innocent civilians with Teddy-flinging, and warnings must be given that prams will be disabled, unless these threats are withdrawn. Be aware the IDIOT has at his disposal an airborne strike force, the DUFF (Directionally Uncontrollable Flying Frisbee), and a missile system, Catapult Launched Anti-Pram Threat Removal And Prevention (CLAPTRAP). So with the combined efforts of PLONCK, CHUMPS, LAMEDUCKs, DUFF, and CLAPTRAP, the IDIOT hopes to free the Chat Room from the tyranny of Teddy flinging. Don't hold your breath.

  You have far too much time alone Ray, unfortunately these
sanctions cannot be applied as the Yorkshire members have
vetoed sanction 1066, therefore to ensure a suitable
outcome i suggest an emergency meeting of the council at
the nearest hostelry to come to a decision, the Yorkshire
forces have now received the new Stealth Teddy bomber and
the New Aircraft Carrier with vertical take off teddies
and a new delivery of Teddyhawk missiles, we will not
fire unless fired upon, may peace prevail.

  As resolution 1066 has been vetoed by the Yorkshire Free State, Op Ted is now illegal and therefore the IDIOT has had to resign his post, and put his toys back in their box. But in light of the aggressive posturing on the Yorkies part, I have this afternoon launched the ultimate deterrent into low earth orbit - MAVIS (Multi Armed Virtually Invisible System). Unfortunately due to a malfunction during launch, she has gone somewhat astray, and was last seen travelling through the Chad Valley nebula, in the constellation of Triang, crying "MaMa". (Grendel to track and retrieve). The only defence now for us Southerners is to fall back on our WMD strategy - (Where's My Dummy), and cry into Mummy's lap, "It's not fair, he's bigger than me". May the Farce be with us all.

  Due to the utter unwilligness of parties to cease
hostilities the Yorkshire members have joined forces
with their Australian cousins, the Yorkshire battalion
is now fully equipped with heat seeking Koalas and
China has offered the army of terracotta Pandas,
however the Yorkshire members may have to join forces
with the Lincolnshire and Southern forces to ensure a
no fly zone as Communications have picked a possible
flare up between the forces of Aston and Broom. This
situation is being monitored and a pre emptive strike
may be needed to maintain peace.
be careful out there.

  I Started off planning for 6 rounds of 6 questions which is my usual quiz format but I could not make up my mind which questions not to ask therefore there are now 7 questions in Round 2 and 8 in Round 4.

I have just done a count up and with the questions plus a few bonus points there are 48 points available.  

Hopefully this will result in a good spread of scores.

Please note that I will have a heavily armed teddy alongside me acting as my bodyguard for the entire evening.

  I had a bit of trouble entering the battlefield, er sorry, Chat Room, but just got in as things got under way. Questions were far too hard for my little grey cells, but I didn't come out pointless. Another fun night, and thanks Arthur for an intelligent spread of questions. Such good fun, I'm withdrawing my troops and declaring Unilateral Teddy disarmament, unless I'm really under threat. Peace and Love to all Teddy-flingers. Now, where's my catapult?

  after complaints by the TPL(teddy protection league)for cruelty to teds,and the RSTH (royal society of tree huggers)for burning too much fossil fuel at launch sites,it has now been decided to make the chat room a NO FLY ZONE. therefore teddies will have to stand down and contestants will be issued with dummies to spit out when the occasion arises.any extra dummies are chargeable and payable to forum funds.

  I occurred to me just, that with so many people looking at this thread (not just the regular quizzers) we possibly ought to clarify the fact that we are just joking about throwing virtual teddies and all that that implies!  It's just part of the fun, and in fact we are mostly all pretty chilled on the quiz.

that speed is great but how the hell are you going to
stop before you hit that wall at the bottom of the hill

  Graham,

Jiggers we used to call them. Still got a hole in one knee and a bit of gravel lodged in an elbow from my last attempt at the East Ham Jigger speed contest, circa 1960. I went fast, in fact I went faster after the front wheel fell off. I went even faster when I fell off. Good job I hit that kerb, stopped me sliding into the main High Street, and under the lorry that was passing at the time! Didn't cry til I got indoors though!

  Thats it! The very one! And me driving it! Though mine was steered with the feet, couldn't source rope as easily as pram wheels, for some reason. I lived not far from the "dumps" in East Ham, could source any amount of good stuff from there. Gawd, we were awful little oiks, when I look back, but happy most of the time. At least we could be sent out to play unsupervised, only returning at a) dinner time, b) tea time, and c) dusk, or 7'o'clock, whichever was sooner. Elf'n'safety and/or Social Services would have had us in care nowadays.

  Hello Quizzers and potential new members of our mad gang on Friday night at 20.30 in the chatroom.

As the still totally disbelieving winner of last week's quiz, I have now (almost) set all the questions.

Been having a manic week at work, so hope I can keep up the high standard of the previous QMs.

The subjects will be (but not necessarily in this order):

Canine Capers
General Knowledge
Mathematics for All
Forum Frolics Recently
The History Bit
and possibly
Yank Stuff

No missing vowels round this time!

(and no sport or is there?)

Hope this suits.

Disgraceful bias, rigged again so that the Aston Mafioso clean up!

I was expecting proper questions e.g.

1. Existentialism and its influence on post Roman Literature or

2 Nuclear Fission (with particular reference to molecular excitement)

3. The Life cycle of the Patagonian Nose Vole or as a last desperate measure” The History of Great Geordie Philosophers”!!


What did we get:- “Sherlock Holmes and Robin Hood”

Dearie me no wonder Miss got 16 and a half points  and I only got a paltry 2!! I had no chance!

And even then the half point appeared to be awarded because the winner could spell Wikipedia!!

It was clear that the QM was teachers pet on the night!!

The topics on Friday evening will be:

1. Waterways of Britain
2. Old Weather Wisdom and Weather Lore (mainly taken from a wonderful book published in 1946 called The Countryside Companion, edited by the great Tom Stephenson
3. General Ignorance
4. The Last english Kings of England - the Plantagenets
5. Forum Frolics, recent happenings on the forum

Hope this suits, five or six questions in each category, pause after round 3 I think.

  Pah and double Pah!!

Yet again more disgraceful shenanigans in last nights quiz!

For the first time in Quiz history someone actually managed to predict the question, and answer correctly before the question was posted on the screen!

Guess who? Yes myself who thanks to my gift of premonition answered the Broom question correctly before it popped up on the screen.

What followed was a travesty of “justice” (and I use the term loosely)! Not only did the QM (Lisa) refuse to award me a point but she actually admonished me for disrupting the quiz! She then instructed me to stay behind at the end of the quiz whilst she administered some type of severe punishment!

Oooh Err I thought I don’t relish that and therefore promptly bailed out of the quiz pronto! Which no doubt cost me valuable points and the opportunity for glory.

Even worse, in my absence the eventual winner Harry da Tiger appeared to Hoover up the sympathy vote and was awarded points on the basis that his team (Hull City) is languishing in the Wheeltappers and Shunters League, whilst mine, (Newcastle United ) are riding high in the Premiership and he is insanely jealous!!

Favouritism of the worst order! Clearly my chances of ever winning the quiz are diminishing rapidly!

Indeed the pub cum shop at Beck Hole is a fabulous throwback. And to cap it all "Tornado" the first main line steam locomotive built since 1961 is running all next week. Bliss!! I just need to avoid treading on a Great Crested Newt for it to be perfect!

We will be somewhere near Ludham Bridge after the Cruise on Company so as to be ready to collect the Ferry on Saturday morning.

Might try the dongle if a signal is available.  Or, does the Dog at Ludham have WiFi?

Re rivising for the quiz Lisa.  I always find if I try to do that I rarely score any points.  I tend to do better when I just leave it to chance.

  Can't wait!  I keep saying to myself "garden candles" over and over again whenever I think of it.  Also must remember bunting!  And logos...

Strange to say, whilst I enjoy making sloe, bullace and damson gins, and blackberry vodka and so on, I don't actually drink much of it.  Too sweet for me even though mine tends to be drier than most.  The bottles are lined up in the dark, ready to bring along to the Meet and C-in-C.

In my opinion, they are best occasionally sampled in small doses as an aperitif...

Little pink candle holder thingies just in case lisa forgets..plastic wine glasses (two sorts)and now we are searching for a different barbeque we have decided what's the point of having two the same so we will buy another one of different type...
They have them in Waterloo at the local pool equipment shop and WEBER dealer so she is in there like a ferret.

  Lol SteveO, shame on you allowing yourself to miss the quiz because of having other fun!

And all you railway enthusiasts, I can only contribute a brother who was an engine driver on the Union Pacific and really did wear the stripey overalls and hat shown in cartoons.

As to four candles, fork 'andles or anything else in the gloaming, I really am trying to remember!  I reckon we should go with citronella candles rather than lights - mossies and all that you know!

Roll on the quiz, one week closer to the boat and I'm seriously worrying that I'll be able to hit my deadlines (ISO 2001 : 2008 Audit on the 17th, argh!) before the holiday week.

  We all had major trouble tonight, just 7 left at the end. Shame this seems to happen on a regular basis. When I was trying to get back in after the 3rd chuck out, I got a message over my screen saying "this site has been hacked by "iht"". Wherever I moved my mouse, I got a block of white over my background photo. I ran MalwareBytes which showed nothing, and my Anti-virus shows no problems either. Very odd.

Still, thanks to Arthur for persevering, when I would have aborted and given up. Well done.

  With all the crashes, Lockouts etc we had tonight during the quiz I must admit that on more than one occassion I was tempted to ask, shall we give up?  Still we managed to get to the end even with only a few left.

Final winner was Gramarg on 13 points with Vetchugger runner up on 12 points.

Also some excellent performances tonight from Grendel in the Coot Club round and Rondonay with the Sailey questions.

Many thanks to those who persevered despite all the problems and I hope that Graham has a trouble free quiz next week.

  Based on what Ray (Regulo) has posted and a quick Google, it would seem that there may be some pimply faced prats with no social skills who have targetted the chatroom.

I have only been in the quiz twice in ages, is this kind of problem regular?

Google shows several variants of "IHT", the least likely is "International Herald Tribune". The "I" could be many different things, but "HT" is very probably "Hacking Team".

Is there anything that can be done to up the security? Is the flashchat an old and easily hacked version?

Regulo    -- Jun-4-2011 @ 9:24 AM
  HDT, I am not what you'd call a regular Quizzer (I'd rather be afloat), but every time I've taken part, there has been some disruption. Mostly lock-outs where your input just doesn't, well, input. The only way then is to exit and re-enter. But last night seemed the first time the whole shebang went pear-shaped for everyone at once. The hacked site message I got didn't seem to adversely affect either the chat room on it's return, or my own computer, and I can't see why anyone would announce their hacking if malice were intended. As you say, pimply youths, most likely.

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

has this problem been reported to either richard / gary ? i know the forum has had a hacker attack recently or is still trying ,( recent problems with the site ,timed out / sever etc)

steve and vicky


arthur99    -- Jun-4-2011 @ 10:00 AM
  Hi all,

I did not experience any hacker messages last night but the chatroom locked up on me several times and ejcected me completely on a couple of occassions.

it would not allow me back in, even under another name, until i had rebooted my own system completely.

I did however notice that when I could not get back into the chatroom last night i could not access the forum either. maybe there is a connection there somewhere even though I understand they are not on the same server.

I will send a pm to Gary about last night and i am sure he would be interested in the details of the hacking message.

The usual problems occuring with the chatroom are users not being able to see all the others that are present.  Last night was one of the worst evenings for problems that I have expereinced.  Especially as there were so few actually taking part due to the distraction of things like the 3RR.

Good to see you in the quiz Stevie (breamslayer).  Please do join in again.  Just sorry last night was such a fiasco.

Looking forward to Grahams quiz next week.  fingers crossed for a trouble free evening.

All the best

  A warm welcome to Steve the Breamslayer, always nice to have a new person aboard the good ship Forum Quiz.  Arthur set some wonderful questions (probably set ALL wonderful questions but on the third lockout I couldn't get back in and was so tired, I gave up, so I missed quite a few.  Funniest one for me was getting back in on the Lake District round and having to guess the Q, I guessed wrong and said Striding Edge instead of Swirral edge, but no matter.  

When I left I was convinced Vetchugger would win but Graham came steaming up the inside and pipped him!  Had to revise my initial response to Fidear's query as to who had won.

If we don't allow whoever is trying to cause us problems to get a rise out of us, they may move on, until then, soldier (or sailor) on, I say!

  Dolly in my youth the broiler was a chicken too tough to roast.  Old Boiler was a term of endearment (not) which was the culimination of bagger, double bagger (in case hers falls off), Boiler, Podgy Boiler and Dodgy Podgy Boiler. The latter being the one at the end of the evening who was very probably not slow dancing on the dance floor but cuddling her pint of snake bite or Guiness and black..

  I will not be there on Friday, 'cause I'll be afloat!! My best score so far is only 2, so I wouldn't be troubling you anyway.

Eat your hearts out, landlubbers. But due to a bad fall, my companion Rene can't manage a 2 week holiday as planned at the moment, so just a weekend this time. I'm still hopeful of making the C-in-C and meet, but things are hanging in the balance. We'll have to see how we get on this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

  Being born in Germany our Scooby Airedale loves horses. He breathes up their noses and then they lick each others faces...Pretty disgusting actually.

Then he wags his tail gets way too excited and woofs up their noses as well. At this point he is very interested but the horses tend to have decided eating nettles is much nicer, and quieter.

  Hi Graham just re read this thread. No we dont have a generator sorry mate. We have got some solar lanterns though (two)and some tea light holders (four)and we can hang the solar garden globes (12 m length)in the trees to provide some light of a more subtle nature.
We also have some solar mobile lanterns with led lights (a bit more harsh) (two of those).

I hope that would be enough light and with Dolly bringing some garden candles and all the necessary citronella buckets (we have three of them too)to dissuade the mossies we should be ok I think...

The bad news is, it's only because Rene doesn't feel up to cruising this weekend. Never mind, Sunbird is at LBBY for her first engine service, and a few snagging jobs, so that gives Jason and his merry men less pressure to complete for this p.m.

See you later.

arthur99    -- Jun-11-2011 @ 12:04 PM
  Here are the topics for the next quiz on Friday 17th June.

Some of you will be pleased to know there are no Arthur Ransome questions and no Steam Railway questions.

1. THE BROADS  
2. HISTORY OF UK SCOUTING  
3. STATELY HOMES

4. TOWNS AND RIVERS
5. HYMNS AND PSALMS  
6. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE


As usual when I set the quiz there will be six rounds of six questions with a few bonus points thrown in. So plenty of chance for a good spread of points if the chatroom behaves.

Look forward to seeing you all on Friday at 20.30.

Everybody is welcome to come and join in the Mayhem.
Please join in even if you have never tried before. We always welcome newcomers.  No Prizes, the only thing the winner gets is the chance to host the next quiz.
                 ================

On another point.  

The winner of this weeks quiz will be due to host the quiz on 24 June.   This is the meet weekend and many of our regular Friday night devetees will be on the Cruise in Company unable to take part. There is also a fair chance of the winner also not being able to host due to being at the C in C.

Mobile broadband signals not too good on the northern broads above Acle.

In view of this will there be a Friday night quiz as normal on 24th despite a possible very low number of people likely to attend. Or will we simply defer the quiz to the following Friday.

All the best

Arthur

I am not saying if that is one of the answers or not but if it was you would still have to apply it to the right question.

I dont think the hymns and psalms questions will be too hard.

Just thought it would make a change if I did not ask Railway or Arthur Ransome questions.

  Alright, children, that's the end of term, put your chairs up on the desks, and then leave quietly. No running in the corridors, thank you. Not you, Lisa, I'd like a word with you, come here, please. Now, young lady, what is it that's taking so much of your attention from your work? On holiday, on a boat! Well, you are a lucky girl. I must say I had wondered about the doodles of boats all over your exercise book. I'd really like you to pay more attention in class, and for you to keep up with the rest, do you think you could do that for me? Good. Now, just another thing, would you not bring that little doggie with you into school, we had enough trouble a few years back with Mary and her little lamb. It's against the rules. And you shouldn't treat it anthropomorphically, dressing it up in a lifejacket as you do, and treating it as a film star. Yes, a very big word, look it up in your dictionary. The dog ate your dictionary? Oh dear. Well, you'll have to save up for another one now from your pocket money, won't you. I've also had reports of you and that boy Keith from the year above. You must be careful what you say to boys, you were overheard speaking in a low voice something about firing up his dongle. That's not at all ladylike or acceptable in or out of school. Now, run along and have a nice holiday.

Lisa, haven't you forgotten something? Yes, please do take your doggie with you.

  OK I admit it!

Malanka, despite being a Broom, is very beautiful and all credit to you for looking after her - I don't think I would want the responsibility.  I'm already too much of a 'meerkat' when anyone comes too close.  

It was lovely to meet so many of the quizzies last weekend. (although I seem to have missed Graham some how).  You would not believe how nervous I was hosting that quiz even with Mike there too.  I can quite happily make a wally of myself in front of a room full of children, but an island full of adults is entirely a different matter.  Not enough drink I think.  

BTW Martin  - I now have a limp to match yours.  Apparently the sore foot I've had for the last 3 weeks is actually fractured and I've been merrily walking around in 4" heels. Oops!

  Pah!

I,m sorry to report that last nights quiz plumbed new depths of depravity!! It was clear from the off that the “Mucky Word Filter” had been removed which resulted in stream of inappropriate words such as “bottom” ,“ dangly bits” and other profanities being displayed throughout the evening!

Even worse, the quiz deteriorated into a morass of innuendo and filth as the evening progressed!!

First of all a female member (who shall remain nameless, but is, shall I say, of mature years!!) described in graphic detail one of her speciality party tricks.

This unspeakable act seemed to consist of the ability to grip a wine glass in one foot followed by a series of bodily contortions involving the said foot, her prehensile left leg and her neck!!


She then attempted to sell me a DVD of this outrageous act!! Disgraceful.

Not to be outdone, a male member (a senior citizen who, quite frankly should know better!) attempted to incite a young (well..ish!) female member to expose part of her nether regions to the rest of the Forum!!

And then the Guttersnipe tried to link this to an incident last weekend when she allegedly feigned injury having fallen off her boat and yet was observed tottering around the Forum Meet in a pair of high heel shoes!

This appalling vista forced me to lie down in a darkened room at the end of the quiz and consume several bottles of Newcastle Broon to reduce the twitching!

Unfortunately for me her vessel (a Mockney Seamaster 30 look alike!) is moored only yards from my shiny Broom and I am deeply concerned that her nefarious activities will become public knowledge and greatly reduce the rate-able value of my mooring!

I,m off back to Brooms.!!

Finally where was the QM in all this? Not only did he fail to suppress this sea of filth but he actually encouraged it! At one stage he was boasting about his huge “Dongle” and its “enormous coverage of Upton Dyke!”

I can assure you that as an avid reader of the Pensioners Gazette (oops I mean Daily Mail) I find this sort of reprehensible behaviour quite disgraceful and I writing to the Ombudsman immediately with a view to forclose this site before next weeks quiz (the fact I only got two points has got nowt to do with it!)

Yours

Utterly Disgusted (or is it Utterly Butterly!)

PS Lisa When you send the DVD can you put it in a Brown envelope marked “From Oxfam”

If wor lass claps eyes on it I,m doomed!!

  paul, sorry for the lack of discipline on friday half of me was running the quiz (after a false start with the wifi at the pleasure boat inn) the other half was joining in a singalong with 6 others at my table.
the manager of the pleasureboat,Glenn, is part of a singing group"THE PROPER JOBBIES" had the pleasure of them playing and everyone singing from 8 oclock, thats why i disappeared straight after the quiz(if you can't beat them join them is my motto)

well done to steveo for winning and thanks to pauline for standing in next week.

oops,nearly forgot to say welcome to our new member who was there on friday-AASE, john's mum from whispering reeds a super lady in every sense.
Aase you are always welcome to join in, glad you could make it, do return.

  Paul, now I know why laptop is always slow to the point of stopping during the Friday night quiz, could never work out why words won't type properly. It quite obviously agrees with you about the sort of standards kept (or not kept). Must admit I missed a quite a bit of it as I was trying to refresh the page to make it work, however, not seeing it never stops me from complaining. Please send address of Ombudsman/woman/person/human.

Hoi, keep your Nefarious Mitts off my Broom Pennant, I’m down this weekend and will be looking for any signs of tampering!

You will be pleased to note that I have spoken to Jim at the Yard and obtained a substantial discount on my mooring fees given your (alleged!) recent activities.

Lisa,

I received the package this morning thanks and very good it is too! I was particularly impressed by Scene 3 which involved a Stethoscope, a flagstaff from a Bounty 27 and an inflatable Coypu.

My eyes are still watering!!

  Well done Arthur, Jag and Grendel!

I was missing the quiz on Friday night while sitting in front of the woodburner in my bijoux accommodation in Swaledale listening to the chuckling stream and the rain on the roof!  Not only was there no signal for my mobile dongly thing but also no signal whatsoever for my mobile phone (not surprisingly).  I had hoped to keep abreast of the mayhem by occassional texts but it was not to be.

Sadly, I shall miss this week too as I can't imagine myself saying "Yes son, I realise you've just come home for the first time in a year but talk amongst yourselves while I have fun on the quiz until silly-o'clock".

Ah well, "see" you soon.  I'll miss you and the mayhem.

Do please come and join in.  Everyone is welcome.

Just click on the red chat room link at the bottom of this page to enter the chatroom.

The format of the quiz is the question is asked and the point is awarded for the first correct answer received.

There are no prizes.  If you happen to win then you get the dubious pleasure of setting the following weeks quiz.  It is not compulsary though as there are always volunteers who will take it on.

The banter that takes place during the quiz is all good fun as well.

Do please come along if you can.

Quiz starts at 8.30 but there are usually a few of us about beforehand.

  Well that was interesting, swooped in for five minutes, got a point and swooped back out again to catch up with the prodigal son and his fiancee.  I meant to come back to the quiz but didn't manage it until too late.

I reckon next Friday night I'll be able to have a night off and get back to the quiz.

Well done all, especially that Mike!

  Okay Teddy-Throwers one and all, here are the topics for this week's quiz:

ROUND 1 – FORUM FROLICS (to get us all in the mood)
ROUND 2 – UNITED ARAB EMIRATES QUESTIONS (since the younger set have just come home from there)
ROUND 3 – THE NORFOLK BROADS HISTORY AND INFORMATION (just for the heck of it)
ROUND 4 – FAMOUS CANINE AND EQUINE COMPANIONS (Miss Leigh's round)

and

ROUND 5 – GENERAL TEDDY THROWING as a sort of wind down

Haven't written the Qs for round 5 yet but they're sure to come

I'm a firm believer in fastest fingers over Google specs, so have tried for Qs that people will just "know" in most cases.

It will be quite a rapid quiz as we are off to Suffolk the following morning early!

Yes as you have guessed that round is about states of the US.  However, the questions do require a bit of additional knowledge so there is no guarantee who will be first with the answers.

  Mrskirky,

You are not supposed to launch teddies before the start of the quiz.  My defence dragons have now gone into high alert mode in case of further incoming teds prior to the quiz.

Heidi,

You never know.

When I looked at the topics for last weeks quiz I did not expect to score a single point let alone win.  

I always aim to try and get off the Zero and anything above that is a bonus.

Personally I take part in the quiz mainly for the social aspect of it.  All the banter and teddy throwing makes for a great way to wind down at the end of the week.

Hopefully see you there later.

All the best

  Sorry chaps... it looks like it was my turn to fall foul of Fluffy, the Chat Room Monster tonight.
Though I noticed a couple of others disappearing, so maybe it wasn't just me.

Now.. Crater Lake.
A delightfully pretty location, with a lodge with staff who would be pretentious if they could be bothered, situated a few hours drive from...

OK, I'll shut up and put the music back on.

  Another fun night, thanks Arthur and fellow Quizzers. And some newbies to join the mayhem, hope you enjoyed it. In a way I'm looking forward to winter, I'm toooooo busy normally for the Quiz in the summer.

6 points! I'm over the moon, think I'll have a hot chocolate to see me to bed!!

arthur99    -- Aug-19-2011 @ 10:04 PM
  Well another interesting quiz.

Goodfortune  was runner up with an excellent score of 10  but the winner was Jaguar on 18 points.   So it looks like another Jaguar special next Friday.

The gremlins caused a number of problems tonight and after the end of the quiz the chatroom seemed to have a really funny turn.  I could only see 2.

Anyway, no zero scores this week as I awarded a bonus point to all for sticking with it despite all the problems.

Many thanks to all for taking part in the quiz and the banter.

All the best

SteveO    -- Aug-22-2011 @ 11:55 AM
  I have missed the quiz for most of August due to boating committments. However, we are giving the Broads a miss over
the bank holiday weekend (too busy/too much traffic/have spent the last 4 weekends on the boat and the house and
garden are going to hell), so I should be able to join you.

I am intrigued by the "novelty songs" topic. Are these the kind of songs that inebriated teenagers and rugger
players used to sing on the way home from the pub i.e. about virgins, Inverness and engineering contraptions or is
this more the "Fastest Milk-Cart in the West" kind of song?

  Just a proposal . . .

What say you that, when "Fluffy" strikes, the QM orders a mass "F5", so we all log off and back on?

Do you think this would solve the problem? Mike seems to have hit on something when remarking that those F5'ing, come back not being able to see those who haven't.

  Hello, fellow Quizzers,

Just a heads-up that the chat room is now on a new version and all your personal settings will have been lost. The good news is that the "mute all" function now works. If you want your scribbling colours and avatars to be as they were, go there and update them prior to Friday night at 08:30, or there could be even more chaos than usual!

Wonder if they've captured and neutered "Fluffy"?

The bad(?) news is that I won't be there, weather is good and Norfolk needs my attendance, in my capacity as captain of "Sunbird". Have a good Quiz, and good luck.

That frequently happens in tropical climes,

When a vessel is, so to speak, “snarked.”

"What's the good of Mercator's North Poles and Equators,
Tropics, Zones, and Meridian Lines?"
So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply
"They are merely conventional signs!
Other maps are such shapes, with their islands and capes!
But we've got our brave Captain to thank"
(So the crew would protest) "that he's bought us the best—
A perfect and absolute blank!"

  Sorry you wont be there Grendel as I am sure you would definetely have the answer to one of the questions.

You never know Heidi you may do better than you think.  It happens sometimes.

There are no poetry questions tonight.

All the quotations on this thread over the last couple of days are from "The Hunting Of The Snark"  By Lewis Carroll, and have no real connection with tonights mayhem.

I dont think tonights quiz is particularly difficult.  Even the saily questions are not that hard.

Anyway look forward to 8.30pm but be prepared I have installed extensive defences against high velocity teddies.

All the best

  Welcome to the quiz mcp1.  We are always happy to welcome new members to come and join in the fun.

There are no prizes.  If you happen to win then you just get the dubious pleasure of hosting the following weeks quiz.  However, if you dont want to do it you can always pass it to the one who was second or ask for volunteers.

Anyway,   results of tonights quiz:

Quite an evening with several high scores and steveO doing rather well on saily questions.

At the end of the quiz  Vetchugger was 3rd on 7 points, jaguar 2nd on 9 points and we had a three way tie on 13 points for first place with SteveO, W-Album and Goodfortune.

W-album won the tie break and therefore will be in charge of the Mayhem next Friday.

Well done Liz for winning and many thanks to all who took part.

Look forward to next Friday

All the best

rather than me choosing the topics for next weeks quiz, I am open to suggestions from our newer and long time members who have yet to win or even gain many points.
the first 6 topics sent by PM  will be used and credit given to the member(s) who supplied them. hopefully this will give some of our newer members a chance to shine next week.
I will find 6 questions to each topic

LOOK FORWARD TO SOME NEW IDEAS.

if this does not work I will sort some of my own but would rather try this.

  As I am "grounded" this weekend, I will do my best to join you for the fun on Friday.

8.39 seems an unusually precise start time Mike. Was this a typo, or are you really intending to "kick-off" proceedings at this time? Either way I look forward to proceedings.

The second amendment of the US Constitution might give citizens the right to bear arms, but what gives us the right to arm bears? - and my bears are armed!;)

  Ok, I have finally finished the questions for tonight's quiz (had a pretty hectic week involving a drive to Doncaster and back yesterday, and looking after a sickly five year old today). Five rounds, each of six questions:

1) 25th November

2) Food & Drink

3) Sport

4) The Norfolk Broads

5) General Knowledge

Some of them are easy, a few of them are hard, hopefully everyone should know at least a couple.

Start at 20:30 as usual, with a fag/tea/comfort break after round 3.


jaguar    -- Nov-27-2011 @ 10:15 AM
  OK FOLKS having won on friday night the topics for next week are;-


OWZAT
BODY PARTS
FATHER CHRISTMAS

BROTHERS
DANCERS

  I will be in the Good ol' US of A on Friday and therefore unlikely to be able to join you.

We put the boat to bed last weekend, so should be able to show my face more regularly after that.

  This evening's quiz was won by Goodfortune with 9 points, with Jaguar in second with 7. SteveO and Grendel tied for third with 5.
Lisa has stepped aside as next week's QM, however, and our leader next week therefore will be Lynsey1983.
Thanks to all participants for joining in, see y'all next week.

  I'll be there, for my sins.  This will signal the end of a long, hard slog at work and the beginning of the Christmas holidays!

Unfortunately I didn't see Mariners Notice 25.12.11 until after I had fitted Miss Leigh Terrier with her flying goggles so I am busily feeding her mince pies so as to comply.  I do hope there isn't an unfortunate accident...

I wonder if we could entice member "eddybear" (Ted) into the quiz?

We could take turns launching him, lol!

In his absence, Miss Leigh will be wearing her goggles ready to be launched next week.  Looking forward to it Tigerhawk.
