    Danny,

    Maybe it's just me, but since I don't look at anything even close to resembling spoilers, I don't look at the "Week X talk" until after week X has aired. So I didn't see this until tonight. Please be sure to keep this in mind when posting things about the contest. I realize there wound up being nothing about it in this post, but the part I quoted had me nervous that I missed something critical. Glad I didn't :)

    Thanks,
    Saul

    I will always be attaching spoiler tags, and have added food so that accidental previews are avoided.

    I am SO glad Allison and Donnie are gone. She really got on my nerves. I couldn't stand her on Big Brother, and seeing her on TAR was not pleasant. I really hope that Donnie means what he said and leaves her for good. She is a toxic person in serious need of mental help.

    I was also glad to see Allison and Donnie go. If they aren't acting, she is a total bi-atch and he is a total dumb @. I kind of think they are acting up some for the cameras, at least she is.

    I was glad to see Charla and Mirna do better. I don't particulary care for the tall one (Charla?), but glad to see them actually trying to have some fun while playing.

    I'm hoping to see the father and daughter (Jim and Marsha?) do well, also Chip and Kim. Other than that, the remaining participants haven't appealed to me yet.

    I was also soooo glad to see Allison and Donny go, even though I guessed someone else to get in last place this leg... I've hated Allison since Big Brother 4 last year, where she got second place. She's a two-faced whiner who has way too much ego for her own good. After the way she acted on that show, I was surprised to see her precious Donny still with her.

    Ah yes, but your spoiler tags always cover the relatively meaningless title of the episode, and leave the line items available for view. And I figure people talk about those line items. So while I appreciate the effort, I still stay away from the threads before the show airs.

    I've noticed that. There isn't a way to hide the thread preview for one forum, but this week, I added a little...something... this week so that the spoilers don't show up in the previews.

    I have loved this show. I haven't seen any of the other four (are they on DVD?) I find myself looking forward to it each week like I used to look forward to the West Wing!

    Danny, BTW, if I was able to watch the episodes in a more timely fashion (it's usually two or three days later that I have time to watch) I'd definitely take part in the contest. :)

    He's changed it so you can. Now you request the Qs and your time starts when you do so. If you join now (or, I guess, next week) you'll start tied for last place.

    Yup, now the "race" portion can be run from Wednesday 10pm until Saturday 10 pm (eastern) based on the time from the point you first grab the questions. After 10 pm saturday, the questions are posted and your time is based then on how quickly you submit answers from that point on.

    A couple people have had problems getting the email reply I use. Both are using hotmail accounts, although I've confirmed that some hotmail users can receive them, it remains a mystery. But anyway, if you use hotmail you might want to jump in on Saturday instead. Make certain you check your DBSTalk preferences, as the email listed there will be the email that is used.

    The availability of the Fast Forward gives anyone just joining the race a chance of jumping back up into the lead. However as the weeks go by, the competition for this elusive prize greatly increases. One was used last week, and I expect more to come in the weeks ahead, especially since there are now fewer Fast Forwards available than there are contestants and no fast forward will be given the final week.
