Subject Round: LANGUAGES

My apologies for cancelling last-minute last week.   I thought I'd tough out what I thought was a little chill which rapidly turned into a near-pneumonic cough & fever.  Went all woozy in the head by about 6pm & realized doing the quiz might do me in way too late.  I spent most of the next 5 days lying down, hacking & trying to get comfortable.  No sleep, little food... ick.

I'm on the road to recovery & 80% better, should be good to go as usual this Wed.

Be sure and lick the answer sheets & pencils.

What was up with the blog + this week's theme

A lot of Widgets available to Blogger users were hijacked a couple of weeks ago to drive traffic toward a provider of blog services via a redirect of the entire blog.  As soon as the Widget loaded you were sent to the other site.  This seems a supremely stupid way to encourage business, but that's what they did.

It took about 10 seconds to research what was causing the problem, but I had to set aside some time to comb through the code in the Widgets to determine which was/were the problem one(s), and I didn't really have time for that until today.

This blog is supplemental to the quiz, and there's always still going to be a quiz unless I state the previous week or on here that there will not be.  And how often does that happen, maybe once or twice/year on Christmas or New Year's Eve..?  Even when I'm not in the city I get coverage otherwise.

For the record last week's subject was Architecture.

The quiz is battin' for the other team this week (unless that's your team, in which case the quiz bats for side for a change... you get the idea).  Reasonable people understand that people who shout quiz answers are the appropriate bashing targets.
