I got 1st place with no daily champion entries.  Still trying to figure out what that means...

Weird, eh?

I think it means you're more consistent than the rest of us!

My time today would have been a lot better if I hadn't had to take a phone call half way through. Grrrr...

I so hate it when that happens.  My officemate kept trying to talk to me during today's.  I hope I didn't seem too horribly rude.

Yeah, I noticed that - I was very surprised to come second four days in a row and still be so far off the pace. Remarkable consistency, Doc. But I guess you'll be none too pleased if we crack the record this weekend and you don't get a mention despite being champion.

Ha!!  Maybe they'll put me down as honorable mention or something?    All the same, it'd be pretty amusing.

I think the key is that my weekend scores happened to both be close 2nds, and that seems to be where you can make up serious time.  That, and the 1st placers on Sat & Sun (Procrastinator & Astrokath) were around 5 minutes back from the other on their off day.  5 minutes being approximately what I am ahead...

Hmm this would be a kinda fun stat to see as another column on the daily champion list.  Unless it's getting cramped for space.  That, or just replace the time taken column with an Olympic style "seconds back from leader" approach.  (note to self, watching too much Olympics...)

Differences between 1st & 10th on Monday - Sunday:
Monday: 56s
Tuesday: 1m 56s
Wednesday: 2m 16s
Thursday: 3m 11s
Friday: 3m 9s
Saturday: 14m 34s
Sunday: 9m 48s

Hehe, so much for that idea!    I got stuck in a bad FP.  I guess doing it twice in 30 minutes isn't *that* bad, right?
