Another question about the guess count - does it ever reset itself? You said it reset after "an elapsed period of time" or something like that. I know you get locked out for 6 hours if you exceed the limit. Furthermore, do individual guesses go away after an elapsed period of time? Am I making any sense?

Just about Wink

once six hours (in this case) has elapsed since your last guess (for that question) it will be reset to zero - even if you hadn't exceeded it.

Your actual guess count remains intact.

If you knew the amount of coffee he drinks, you'd wonder how it was ever possible for him to drop off. (And that's not a joke either - he really does!)

By my calculations, when it's 3am in Texas it's 9am here in the UK, which doesn't seem a particularly ungodly hour to me Wink

I'd guess you need to post about 9/10pm, your time, if you want to get away with your tripe Laughing

I know for a fact that he never sleeps...every time we post something on the open forum he is there to delete it...saying it is not appropriate for young viewers Laughing ...go figure.... Angelic

Not if you were able to post here.  Perhaps you have exceeded the 15 guess limit and will have to wait until you are unfrozen.
