We've got eight rounds ready to go, although they are more your standard quiz style (I suppose you'd call it that) rather than madcap rounds that challenge the very breadth of KovacsC's Excel intellect ;)

Our punchmans class is starting up again this evening and will be running from 7pm to 7.45pm - which means that by the time we get home and get the kids into bed, we may be running a little late, no more than 5-10 minutes.

Oddly enough, I have a couple of rounds as well. All PowerPointed up. I think I've got the hang of sharing my screen as well now as I've been setting up a meeting with me and myself on two devices, which probably means it'll fail at the first hurdle if I try it tonight.

It's Zoom, you see. I hadn't had any need to learn how to use it, other than as an audience member, until I wanted to do a couple of rounds on the Beex quizs. I used to be OK with WebEx, but that is SO passe.

I am writing a round at the moment, and twice I have written a question, moved on to the next slide deleted the text there, and written another question. Only I didn't move on to the next question, I overwrote the previous question, and let me tell you power point only has so many levels of undo (and each key stroke seems to be one level!)

I think I may stop now before I throw my laptop out of the window.

I think it's more likely this will be ready for next week (if that's okay with everyone), but I do have one or two stand alone rounds for this week if needed.

You'll be pleased to know that I won the background competition in our directorate's fortnightly call. No people-pleasing puppies for me - I used a stunning view of a valley near Kinder Scout.

I have pretty much finished my quiz (6 rounds with a few bonus bits) and am happy to do a complete quiz on Tuesday if that's what everyone wants ( I would like Kov to do the scoring still if that's okay, not because of any trickery, just because I kept on forgetting last time) If people'd prefer that everyone did their own rounds I can have one of them ready too.

I have an idea for a round but not done anything about it yet. I have no objections to doing a full Malc quiz.

I may collapse with apoplexy just trying to follow Malc's scoring methods in more than one round each week. I'm certain that scored myself down a couple of weeks ago.

I need to take a screenshot when he shows them or I might as well just say "Zero" and sit back watching everyone else going into meltdown.

Thanks guys, sorry we won't on so late, I think that was 20% starting late, and 80% too many questions.

Next one will be much more "traditional"

Thanks for the quiz Malc, and sorry I bombed out early. I was so knackered yesterday (rough day) that I was falling asleep at the desk :S Was not a reflection on the quiz at all - particularly liked Cats and Cities :DD

We considered joining this week but Sal is more often than not too tired and I don’t have it in me to do two quizzes a week (we do one with my parents on a Thursday). Plus the ones we did finished too late.

I would like to see some of your faces though. Is there any appetite for an additional shorter, non-quiz-based call on, say, a Friday at 7pm (as an example time)? Like an hour max but just for chit-chat.
