I was thinking about what some of us were doing exactly one year ago. At this hour, I was posting.

Here's one quote, about guessing how long was left in the contest:

I'd have thought more than 12 hours, but seeing as scholar has made nearly 200 posts in 24 hours, it's starting to get difficult to tell. confused2


And another:

Giron was exaggerating, of course. But I was posting a lot. :D It was great fun.

Exaggerating? are you sure?

I'm pretty sure. Giron did a screencapture of the highest score he saw for me, which was under 400. At the time he said "400 of them were made by scholar, " I had yet to make a number of the posts that were later part of my high score.

I'm sure you can picture Karl's amusement. Would he have been smiling, or perhaps even laughing, when he observed all the activity the contest stirred up? (Not that he stayed up all night, of course. He mentioned when he was signing off. He also said his software would keep track of the winner, if it happened in his absence.):D
