I would suck at it, but I wouldn't mind playing it. I can do it any date, but I would prefer later evening.

Hey, anyone interested in playing the rest of the questions on IRC should shoot me an email at externalsolipsism at gmail dot com so we can work out a date. Sometime next week is what I'm aiming for and I'd like to know what times work for everyone.

So I'll tentatively suggest the coming Wednesday, August 25th, at 8 PM as a good date for people who want to play the rest of the questions and the packets of death on IRC. If no one vocalizes their inconvenience either here or over email, I'll assume that date is fine with everyone.

Which packets have you done already? Also, is that EST?

Yes, it's 8 PM EST, and we'll gather in #quizbowl and maybe move to another channel afterwards.

The only questions that have been read were the ones played at CO. There are a couple other packets, a bunch of replacement questions, and some packets of death to be played.

When will this be rescheduled? Since you didn't show up and all.

Yeah, sorry about that. For reasons unknown to me I had convinced myself that it was happening Thursday night rather than Wednesday night. I'll tentatively reschedule things for tonight; if people can't show we can always work out another date. I'll also send Abid a copy of the remaining questions in case there's a night that works for everyone else and I can't be there.

I can't make tonight. I could do tomorrow or Saturday, though.

I don't think either Friday or Saturday work for me; next week I'd be free Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings. Does any of those days work for everyone?

Zero percent chance I can make Tuesday, a bit under 50/50 for the other two. I'd love to show up, but chances are I just won't be able to. (These are better chances than over the weekend would've been, though!)

Wednesday is definitely out for me. Tuesday is most likely out, though I might be able to re-schedule if that turns out to be a day that's good for everyone else. Thursday works fine for me.

I've just realized that Thursday is out for me. I guess it looks like we're doing this tomorrow night. I don't think I can start until around 9-9:30, if that's alright.

I was in #quizbowl waiting for this before Matt Weiner kicked me out. Anyone happen to see this and care to tell me what room, assuming not #quizbowl, this is in?

Yeah, according to Shantanu he'll be sending it sometime this weekend, or a little after. Then we can open up discussion and such.

Just as an update, I did send this to George a few days ago, but he won't post it until FNT is done and shipped out.
