We have decided to continue updating the CIC as normal -- it's a source of entertainment for a lot of people, and to not do so would be to allow such acts to change us. It's only a tiny corner of the universe, but it's our corner. Thank you all for your e-mails, msgs, IMs and such. Those looking for people to commiserate during this time of crisis are welcome in #WingNut.
Here's Monday's trivia -- and my apologies for failing to post it earlier in the week.
Welcome to Game Three, Week Forty-Six Trivia. We play each week. Every Monday two main questions and one bonus question are posted to alt.games.wing-commander and listed at the CIC. Please email answers to CReid1701@aol.com or ChrisReid@wcnews.com. Be sure to include a name you would like to be known under for the Scoreboard. Have your answers in before this coming Sunday (September 16, 2001) to ensure your answers are recorded. Answers submitted early may be returned and you may be able to fix incorrect answers, time permitting. Main questions answered correctly are good for 5 points, bonuses good for 3.
