1:03 AM
well. that was uneventful.
 
who here is able to play now?
 
still me
 
@Rubio @JohnDvorak
I have a word ready, ping me if/when enough players
 
i mean, 4 people is technically enough to play
 
so you are able to play?
I'll just start
defending: U
 
1:16 AM
1: Online for like 20+ years
 
contact 1
 
2: ...
 
pass 1
 
1 USENET
 
oh dear.
1 is not USENET, which has been around for closer to 30 by now
 
1:19 AM
oh
 
rip
 
It was Ultima Online
 
2 USENET?
 
2 is not USENET
 
and I thought I was so clever
 
1:20 AM
good lord. usenet is 40.
 
my sense of time is apparently distorted
 
@JohnDvorak ping. game's on. ;)
3: Springsteen's birthplace
4: Drago's birthplace
 
that's Drago and not Draco, right?
because I only know about the latter
 
it's definitely Drago
so, how this game works is, other people besides me are allowed to set clues. ;)
 
I know
 
1:24 AM
and I'm supposed to be able to make guesses on them
D:
 
5: Steve Harrington has one with a hat
okay then.
 
3 UTAH?
 
3 is not UTAH
 
3 UNIVERSITY
 
nor is it UNIVERSITY
6: Someone who fills in for someone else's role
7: Someone who fills in for Dumbledore's role
no? well. this isn't supposed to be a single player game.
 
1:35 AM
9: ^Z
 
contact 9
 
1:49 AM
10: the beginning of recorded Wikipedia (3)
 
pretty sure we've lost our defender.
 
yes, I am too
@micsthepick
 
if @micsthepick reappears soon, then contact 3, 6, 7, 9 -- but I'm going to bed soon :-).
 
"seen 5m ago" does not look good
 
2:17 AM
sorry, lost all service
 
well, ...
 
9 UNDo
 
yes on 9
 
pass 3
7 UMBRIDGE
 
3 is the USA.
(because of the song)
(though I assume he was in fact born in the USA)
 
2:25 AM
@Rubio
 
@Rubio ?
I'm going to just reveal the next letter
 
I think we may no longer be quorate.
 
defending: U N
 
I'm pretty confident that your guess for 7 was correct, so that dies. I'm pretty confident that 6 lives.
I'm pretty confident that 9 lives.
 
@GarethMcCaughan I assume you mean to say no longer in quota, I've never heard of quorate
 
2:38 AM
oh, pppery is here so that last one is needless
quorate = having a quorum. quorum = enough people for a given activity.
 
ok, TIL
 
usually used in more formal contexts where e.g. a session of some legislative body is only permitted to do its work when at least N people are present.
 
10 dies
 
likewise for board meetings, committee meetings, etc.
 
9 was guessed already too
 
2:40 AM
oh yes, so it was
 
and I validated the guess
 
2 could be any number of things; no idea whether it lives
 
but I have little interest in playing this nearly defunct game
 
yeah, I think there aren't enough players here for it to be much fun
(and there will soon be one fewer, because I really need to go to bed)
 
I'll still be around for the next hour or so, but this isn't interesting to play
 
2:41 AM
half defended: UNPREDICTABLE
 
3:19 AM
hi
 
 
4 hours later…
7:07 AM
Damn I missed the game :/
 
 
4 hours later…
10:44 AM
That's OK -- the participants in the game kinda mostly missed the game too.
3
 
 
4 hours later…
3:13 PM
... although perhaps the game would have functioned if you hadn't missed it.
 
I wouldn't have missed the game if it had started sooner
