Theoretically I have the scores, but it would probably take an inordinate amount of scrolling to find them.


Eh, the scores don't matter. I just wanted to know if it was a well-run event!

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

It's your favorite retired admin checking in here, hoping you all are having a wonderful holiday season. Best of luck in all your competitions this season.

I'm gonna go wander off and see if any of my local tournaments need tests written for them.

It's a joke; the forums were accidentally deleted after that season and we sometimes like to act like nothing happened.

Re: Rate the song above you - Classical music

I don't see any reason to have even two separate threads. The entire point of the thread is to get people to branch out and try music they may not have otherwise tried. Segregating it like this defeats the purpose of the thread. If you enjoy classical music, I encourage you to post it in the other t...

Next up: L.E.D. vs. teranoid - THE DETONATOR Congratulations, I guess, for finding a song that checks none of my boxes?

Re: Kansas 2017

So I hear O-Town ( :roll: ) was last weekend? I'm seeing a few results on the internet (Pembroke Hill apparently won with a pretty low score) but not much beyond that. This was a pretty long time ago, but yes, O-Town was held in November. 1st- Pembroke Hill 2nd- Lincoln Southwest 3rd- Olathe North ...

Re: Remote Sensing C

In a lot of cases, invitationals tend to be better-run than regionals because invitationals have higher levels of competition. Regionals will often bring into play a bunch of schools with skeleton programs who can't field a full roster and/or never go to invites. I'd surmise that most invitationals ...

Not a bad serifed font -- I do think it's trying a little too hard -- but your mistake occurred when you suggested a serifed font could be the best font, espe...

Re: Remote Sensing C

Yeah, I realize sometimes they ask you things that are really hard to know, like for example they could ask you about which bands on a certain sensor test NIR wavelength. The only way to get that right would be to have all the bands laid out, and that's not going to happen for every satellite. I ha...
