9/15 for me too. Admittedly been on holiday so not kept up with the news.

8/15 for me, but for some reason I chose “shoes” for the Raspberry Pi question and pressed the Reveal button before I realised :laughing: (It was the answer above “computers” and I guess it was a finger spasm).

I just spent a stupid amount of time this morning trying to remember what the Ian question was :man_facepalming:

I didn’t look at the comments on the quiz yesterday, I wonder if anyone tried to tell Martin it should be LAN?

One lucky guess and two educated guesses lifts me up to bang average this week.

9/15 this week, with which I’m happy. For some reason it didn’t give me a score at the end, just a request for a donation.

I’m too ashamed to post mine.

Me too. It was more than 4 though.

Was this on mobile or desktop? Usually the request for donation is a pop over advert that can be cleared, possibly your score was hidden under it.

Not my best week; a lot of questions I didn’t know, and I guessed very badly.

It could have been worse. I was in grave danger of overthinking the !football question, but luckily I gave myself a stern talking to a stuck with my first answer.

Desktop. I’m used to the pop-up and it does usually dismiss to reveal what’s beneath it but there was nothing beneath it this time. Anyway, it only took a few seconds to tot up the score myself.

I’m not using an ad-blocker, either, so there shouldn’t be anything playing with the page source.

Strange! Did you miss a question? Or mis-click and reveal an answer without having selected an option? I had that happen to me a couple of times, albeit on mobile rather than desktop.

50% guesswork. R-

Not that I know of. Just one of those things, I guess.

The copious amounts of spanish beer this week in Menorca havent had a detrimental effect. Either that or I’m incredibly lucky :thinking:
