Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Despite the chattiness, my impression is that those games tore through clues much faster. This could be in part because of the lower maximum clue length (the TV screens couldn't accommodate as many words back then as they do today), but the average clue length might actually be the same, with the re...

In 2010, she signed in as "CC". I suspect that she did so in 2003 as well, and the Archive's nicknaming her "CCH" is in error. Does anyone have the 2003 recording to check?

Re: New season, new Archivists wanted

This talk of contestant podium nicknames reminds me of a brief embarrassing incident when I was called up for a rehearsal round. Anxious to get rolling, I wrote my initials on the podium. Contestant coordinator Glenn Kagan, playing "Alex", simply shook his head at me and said, "Can't play." I hit th...

Re: New season, new Archivists wanted

Neville has pointed out another little rule--we reproduce contestant nicknames as closely as possible to how the contestants themselves wrote them on their podiums.

Re: New season, new Archivists wanted

Recording to computer--using either a TV card (which records high definition (HD) ATSC signals from over-the-air (OTA), if that's enough acronyms for you) or a video capture card that would allow you to capture the video out of your DVR. There are also DVD-based VTRs that allow you to record to a DV...

Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I believe this game does set a record for most unrevealed clues in a regular play round, with nine, breaking the record set by my second game (eight). The Jeopardy! Round (with interviews) cost 11 minutes, 21 seconds of airtime. Kelly's 20-second Singapore travel plug left only 6 minutes, 5 seconds ...

Jeopardy!'s new affiliate in Cleveland

In case anyone tunes in to WEWS tonight out of habit, just a reminder that as of today, J! is airing on WOIO 19 (which is channel 4 on most cable schemes).

This marks the first time that the show has had any change of channel or time since it debuted in September 1984.

Re: new tryouts

I can't remember the last time the show asked specifically for people in certain geographical areas--not within the last 8 years for certain. Cleveland got a new affiliate, and that's probably part of it. (Cinci too?) Beyond that, is there some sort of shortage of Ohioan contestants? Side effect of ...

I'd like to see "mesh" on the weekly poll. I pulled it, but maybe not in time to have made the decision to buzz in, had I been at one of the lecterns.

From Ryan: Ha! Yes, that's true. I think 1987 is too early, though. Tell the JBoard guys that their registration system isn't working: the confirmation email hasn't arrived.

Darnit, I did it again, and waited too long to transcribe Matthew Cline's pre-game interview from Kids Week game 1. No idea if it's recoverable. Can anyone use some web-fu to get it back? Thanks.

Re: J! Archive search system down temporarily; kludgy Google substitute

Old search re-enabled. Would Sphinx be able to make newly added content available for search as soon as it was entered into the database? How would I set it up so that it would efficiently index by clue/player rather than by game page?

Re: Alex hospitalized with mild heart attack

Coronary artery disease is a food-borne illness. The good news is, it is a reversible illness. If you're at risk of a heart attack, and everyone is to some degree, consider switching to a plant-based diet. heartattackproof.com Presentation
