We need Doctor Factenstein back in this site.

He's bossy, rude, challenging, smart, intelligent, sometimes insulting but only when insulted, in your face and dynamic.

He was there before because we WERE boring. He's back again because we ARE boring.

Welcome Doctor Factenstein. I look forward to the first bit of biffo.

This site was never meant to be "Heaven". Heaven is boring.

This site was meant to be a place of dynamic.

I'm mortified to be described as "rude". I'll take the rest with thanks.

I'm back because I like quizzes and my regular Tuesday night pub quiz stopped. There's no divine mission about it really.

You are a dickhead, no doubt.

And welcome back.

You are the antithesis we need.

Otherwise, we are dead in the water.

Being argumentative maybe the key.

But it was always YOU that brought out the best arguments whether agreed to or not.

Doctor Factenstein, will you help us?

And, of course, I am a bigger dickhead than you.

He's been around longer so obviously I am a bigger dickhead.

I am just trying to think of the formula.

Hey Tabby, I'm not quite sure what the thrust of your comment is - but as long as you're happy...

Tried to get "hard-headed" into a sentence and keep it fairly clean.

Gave up.

Nope...chooky.....that is exactly right.

Being hard-headed is what I, and maybe the Doc have been and I think for a reason.

You want heaven? Don't come here.

Why? Because "heaven" is a construct with terrible ramifications. A place where everyone agrees and nothing happens. No arguments, no disagreements, just the same day in and day out.

Kill me now.

Such a place is the not the description of heaven, but it is of purgatory.

Dynamic is the key to ANY relationship. And it is the key to our site. A little bit of problem now and again, some friction, making up and then fighting again.

If everyday is the same, your life is in a spiral downward and believe me, people will get bored and not come back.

Open up the brain cells and challenge the challenger.

I was actually going to post this whole idea before Doctor Factenstein came back but I didn't because I assumed members thought I was specifically making trouble.

Now he's back, there can be just straight trouble.

But it's GOOD trouble.

Sometimes we're all in different places.

So I'm just saying hello Allan and a bit of a frightened scaredy wave............

Especially the "Sometimes we are in all diferent places" part.

So, getting up and roaming around in what I hope is a temporary patch of sleepless nights induced me to post something  senseless, or was it sensible? More sleeplessness now, and they say you shouldn't go to screens, but then we're all in different places....I  might adopt that bit of nonsense as my motto....

By the way I'll give scared but friendly waves to you all, because you're all competitors, all unknown, yet all very amicable.

Switch off and good nights to everyone.

Well, he is one of the key personalities of this site, whether in attendance or not.

His application to, and development of Factacular are part of the reason why Factacular was, is and will be popular.

He created the systems that enabled The Decathalon and the Sir Kevington Tournamental Quizoff.

He created and deployed the first Factacular Cup tournament.

ALL the tournaments that came afterward are based in some way on DiscoStu/Doctor Factenstein's earlier ground breaking efforts. All I have done is taken what he has already done and applied it in different directions using different software........and a work around or two.

JMK's tournaments, the Java Jive, Team Pursuit, the current Factacular Cup, the Pot Black tournament and others still to come, ALL of them are BASED of the original work of Disco Stu/Doctor Factenstein in some way.

He is not perfect by any means. But neither am I and neither are any of you. Under certain circumstances, butting heads is part of the way he does things.

But not having him involved in this site is a mistake.

(besides, on a selfish note, he has answers I require relative to future tournaments)

I like the cut and bravura of recent members, that is a fact. You guys obviously belong to to the experience that is Factacular.

But don't presume to know of the hard work it took to get this far.

You guys are good, but take the time to remember the foundation that was laid before you.

You may eventually take over if you stay.

But the Old Guard still have something to add and we are not going to go away.
