Good call, Bentley. I think we've got all the old Ironhead packets from around 2004-2005 somewhere if you want them. If they're not too old, I'll check it out when I get back to Pittsburgh.

What is this Tidy Whitey Bowl, and what can you tell me about it, lol? I asked Aren, who was a hs freshman nearby, and obviously he had no clue. We read a packet yesterday for historical purposes, and it was either the biggest waste of time, or 20 minutes of awesomeness, not quite sure.

I can't remember if Mike sent that to me or not. I'll double check tonight. I also have Jeff Goldblum to post.

I seem to recall doing so, but maybe I'm wrong. If I did not, please let me know.

There's something wrong with the link to "Bayou a Drank" on the Wastebin isn't working right now. Is it going to be fixed?

I'm not sure if all of the mirrors are done yet for Penn Bowl. If they are when will it be posted on here?

Three points:

- First, that tournament was fucking horrible. You'd have more fun at practice reading popsicle stick questions to each other.
- Second, it was not even written fully; it seems unlikely that writers who failed that fundamental task would succeed in the next step of uploading it publicly.
- Third, the editors of this tournament should spend their time giving the damn refunds they promised to participants before spending even one second disseminating their horrendous questions more broadly.

I'm having problems with the site--it's saying that "the domain registration has expired." I don't know if this is a problem just for me or what, but it's not letting me pull up any packets.

Whoops, looks like the DNS expired. Hopefully this will be fixed by Monday.

There are a couple of new sets on the site today. I think I may be missing 1 or 2 This Tournament Has Eleven Thousand Writers packets. E-mail me if you don't see your packet on there.

I've been looking through my archives--I've found at least 22 packets I've written for online play only that are not on Wastebin (although not all of them are trash, and a number of them were posted on the forums at some point). I'll check and see if I have any more, index them, and send the trash ones off to Mike. The other ones are almost all history and I'll just probably post the zip file here.
