Anybody know what's up (or down) with Protobowl over the past few days?

Now that I realized that this doesn't work on an iPad, this is far superior to Protobowl.

I was referring to the QuizBug feature of Quinterest, which only seems to work on my laptop, as I need a space bar for it.
Sorry for my seemingly incoherent statement.

I was trying to understand why the program NOT working on an iPad was a feature. To me, it'd be much more useful if you could play with it on an iPad.

Certainly it would, but perhaps he was inarticulately saying that the lack of functionality on an iPad skewed his judgment until he was able to test QuizBug on a non-iPad electronic device, on which it would certainly perform at a level superior to dead Protobowl, and arguably perform at a level superior to Protobowl alive.

Noticed some interesting new code involving QANTA. Some cool AI training perhaps?
