  1. Okay, the next game sessions of LDS Trivia and Puzzles is every day for the rest of the week until a game occurs at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. For information on how to get to the game, go to its website. I'm going to ask three completely random questions here. Rack your brains to come up with the answers, including looking them up, but do not post those answers here. Come to the game to answer. I suggest storing the answers in a text file using one line per question. When prompted, post the answers in the game. Earn points. Anyway, here are the questions: Church History: Name three of Joseph Smith's scribes when he translated the Book of Mormon. Book of Mormon: Laman and Lemuel were murmuring against Lehi. What did they feel in regards to Jerusalem? A) They felt it wouldn't be destroyed; B) they completely and totally believed Lehi that it would be destroyed; or C) they wanted to get their items that were left behind? New Testament: Which two gospels talk about Jesus cursing a fig tree? A) Matthew, B) Mark, C) Luke, and D) John.
  2. (I forgot about Stake Conference, so I'm moving the game to tomorrow, Monday, or Tuesday. One more day to look up answers to the three questions.) Okay, the next game session of LDS Trivia and Puzzles is on the 18th, 19th, or 20th at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. For information on how to get to the game, go to its website. I'm going to try this again by posting three completely random pre-game questions. Rack your brains to come up with the answers, but do not post them here. Come to the game, and players will get their chance. I suggest storing the answers in a text file using one line per question. When prompted, post the answers in the game. Earn points. Look up answers. Anyway, here are the questions: Is the following from the M) Book of Mormon or the B) Bible? "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation; a foundation whereon if men build, they cannot fall." Book of Mormon: "All of the following were righteous men . . . EXCEPT A) Jared, B) Abinadi, C) Lehi, or D) Gadianton?" Is the Kyiv Ukraine Temple within its city limits?
  3. I hope to do a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles tonight. Since it's short notice and close to the regular start time, I'll move it to no later than 8 pm Pacific. Having two people would be ideal, but one works. It's the same location as before: channel #lds_trivia on DALnet. More information available on the website. If a game doesn't happen tonight, I will have one on Saturday night and will post the time and initial questions. If you have any questions about how to get to the game, please let me know.
  4. The next game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles will be tonight, Friday, 2 Jul at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. It is at the same location as before. More information is on the website: http://www.ldstrivia.org/. I'm going to try something and do pre-game questions here instead of mailing list only. Here's how it works. I'll post three completely random questions from my database. Rack your brain to come up with the answers, including looking them up. Do NOT answer these in a comment. I won't count it. Now, save the answers somewhere in a text file. Go to the game's location and wait for the game to start. When prompted, paste the answers to these questions. Whoever gets them correct in one shot gets points. Unfortunately, I will not post the answers to these questions here or any message board. If we play a game, I will post the correct answers in the newsletter after the game. Finally, here are three questions: Which Latter-day Saint sang the following lyric? "The world and I, we are still waiting. Still hesitating, any dream will do." New Testament: Which two gospels talk about the fourth day of Passover, which occurs after Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem? Church History: Wilford Woodruff talks about Joseph Smith holding a meeting on a Sunday in a log schoolhouse in Kirtland. Excluding Joseph, how many people does he list by name that are in attendance? The last question is normally an educated guess question, but it will change to a regular question, because people can look it up and take more time.
  5. This is sudden with not much notice, but I want to have a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles either tonight or tomorrow night at the usual time of 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The game takes place at the same location: DALnet on IRC in #lds_trivia channel. More information is on the website. I successfully moved references to the software. Unfortunately, the way it makes the HTML doesn't have the desired effect. Oh, well. Anyway, I also updated the sources in the answers themselves. I want to make it as easy as possible for people to find and even verify answers. It's also there if players want to study more about various topics.
  6. I plan on two days for the week of 7 Jul to 13 Jul regarding a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles: Sunday the 7th and Monday the 8th at the same time at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The location has not changed: It's still on DALnet through IRC in channel #lds_trivia. I hope to see some people then. More information is on the game's website. As for other days, it depends on an event happening Tuesday. I'll post if there are other days for the week. Think of this game as a great Family Home Evening activity. Note: There will only be one game for next week, so if a game happens on Sunday, there won't be one on Monday or for the rest of the week. I'll post if a game happens, or I'll remove this post. I'm also updating sources. I found software to manage references and got sources for the questions, including links. It will be much easier to have the software do the work instead of me. Besides, I learned that I did some of the entries wrong. I'm going to update the sources in the questions themselves, which will take longer. Anyway, I hope to see you there for one of the game sessions.
  7. It's the fourth of July week so that some people may travel for this holiday. I plan on two days next week with the possibility of doing other days if requested. The two days is Sunday the 30th and Monday the first at the same time at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. I may have the game earlier if two people show up. The location has not changed: It's still on DALnet through IRC in channel #lds_trivia. I hope to see some people then. More information is on the game's website. Note: There will only be one game these two days, so if a game happens on Sunday, there won't be one on Monday or for the rest of the week. I'll post if a game happens, or I'll remove this post.
  8. I know it's not much notice, but I'm hoping to have a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles tonight, Sunday the 23rd, at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. I am done with school so that I can do other games on a different day of the week. Let me know what day. Information on how to get to the game is on its website.
  9. Okay, it's been a while. I am almost done with school, and I just moved to a new location, so I didn't have access to the computer with the capability of playing the game. (It's only on one computer.) There's probably not enough notice for tonight, but I'm hoping to have a game either tonight, tomorrow, or Sunday. I'm setting a time at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern, but I am open to change it. Let me know what time you'd like. The location has not changed, so if you want more information on how to get there, visit the game's site. As for game changes and whatnot, I haven't had time to work on the game. I wrote a few questions, but that's about it. We'll see. I'm going to make posts in my new ward and my old ward in an attempt to get some players. Let me know if you have questions.

    Failed Movies -- Good or Bad

    Okay, let me throw in my two cents about some flopped movies: I love "Titan A.E." I even have songs from the movie. It was the demise of Fox Animation Studios. A lot of Don Bluth movies didn't do well in the theater. "The Secret of Nimh" was a good movie from what I remember. I enjoyed "American Tail" and "American Tail 2 . . ." "Land Before Time" was good, and I even watched some of the sequels, but that franchise may have been overused. Oh, I enjoyed "The Quest". It was the first PG-13 Jean Claude Van Damme movie, and I enjoyed it. This reminds me of a few others, one I'm not sure is considered a flop, but it didn't do as well as the first two. I love the third Karate Kid movie. Terry Silver gets my best villain award regarding the actor and the character. He planned his revenge so well, especially tricking Daniel. I enjoy "The Next Karate Kid", but that movie has its flaws. The idea was great, but it just wasn't done right. The fight seen between Miyagi and the store patrons was ridiculous. It wasn't written well. I haven't seen "Rocky Horror Picture Show", and I'm not sure if I want to see it. I did see "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" movie, and I like it mostly for the songs. Granted, it's not on the appropriate side. I bring it up, because it's also a musical. I love "Tron"! I've seen "Tron: Legacy", but I enjoyed the original much more. I did buy the soundtrack to Legacy, and it was a good movie but not as good as the original. (I don't think the original flopped, however.) I've seen "Speed Racer" and thought it was okay. I haven't seen it since. I believe Jim Hensen's "Labyrinth" flopped in the theater but has a considerable cult following, and the music was/is excellent. I love the movie. "It's a Wonderful Life" flopped, and I think someone removed the copyright on it. It's a good movie with a cult following. It's also why it plays frequently at Christmas time. "Xanadu" was a flop; however, its soundtrack was more popular. The movie had a great idea, but they didn't do it well. I didn't like the ending. It reminds me of "The Chase". I hated its ending, too. (I don't think "The Chase" flopped, however.)
  11. Okay, this isn't much notice, but I hope to have a game of LDS Trivia and Puzzles tonight at the usual time of 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. This is in about five and a half hours. More information on how to get to the game is on the game's website. I'm not sending any pre-game questions until someone signs up to the mailing list. If you want to get three pre-game questions sent before each game, please sign up. It's also on the website. Finally, please let me know if you are unable to sign up to the mailing list. I can't fix things if I don't know about them.
  12. Okay, an opening has come up in my schedule for Sunday, 24 Mar, at the usual time of 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. The game may start earlier if two people show, and I'm ready. I'm done with school until a week from Monday. (Boy, that's not a lot of time.) I don't know when I'll be able to have games, but I'll announce here when I'm available. IRC is an older form of chatting, but it's still great due to features the IRC client I use has. Without its scripting capabilities, I would have to use other methods. The games would last a lot longer, and it may not be as fun. I'm still writing questions, but puzzles can be the hardest to write. Writing a combination of small and large puzzles is difficult. As for other days in the week, I'll announce the day before when one or more spots open. Thank you, and I hope to see you there.
  13. It's been a while for a game due to personal reasons. There are two days to possibly have one game: Saturday (now today) and Sunday (tomorrow). The official time is 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern; however, the game can start earlier if two or more people show ready to play, and I'm there, too. For more information, see the website.
  14. This week's trivia game session is only tonight. I'm not available the other nights this week. Once again, the game starts roughly at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern. It may start earlier if two people show up. For more information, see the website.
  15. Okay, I thought I posted about the game sessions this week, but I didn't. My apologies. Normally, it's Friday and Saturday in addition to Sunday, but today is a snow day. Add tonight to the mix with a start time of 6 to 7 PM Pacific, 9 to 10 PM Eastern. For more information about the game, see the game's website.
