indeed, i've been finding this out - in usual times i would have been happy to pay for a premium service, but of course a/ there's no money coming in now, and b/ no way of guaranteeing i can get a reliable interweb signal here anyway. So looks as though it's workaround time for now!

Hmm, never been keen on skype as it wants to be on all the time and seemed to take up valuable processing space when i tried it before. Thinking i'll keep it simple for now, but thanks for taking an interest, first quiz might be up tomorrow, i'll post links here too!

Have entered. Would be good to get a FISO high score table up if enough people from here enter. Perhaps people can post their own scores up?

cheers

Lines open for entries until mid-afternoon, no need to be strict - i'll then set up another brief video cast and a page with answers etc., and then on to another selection for tomorrow.
Astonishingly, one of my agencies just sent through a request for a virtual quiz gig next week - i have already spoken to the potential client, this might just work. Even if it doesn't, it certainly cheered me up this morning!

That's good to hear. Nothing is permanent in this world, even our troubles. (Of course you'd know who that quote is paraphrased from).

A few more answers in than two days ago, better scores so far too - either people are getting smarter, or I made the questions a bit easier.

Ha, yes bluenosey you've top scored, videocast was already recorded and uploaded but i have amended the page to say that you're the winner, will be posted later today. Morgan won the first quiz on a tiebreak by virtue of being first entry in and still beating other scores.
All good, more soon ...

I did have a couple of schoolboys help with the flags but the theme tunes were all my own work.

As you can see it was beginner's luck. As with you so it seems!

Cheers. I had two guesses in there - Olivia Newton John and 5 Seconds of Summer. As Morgan said, possibly a bit of beginners luck.

Not sure how many entries you are getting, or from where, but it is nice that FISO has won both days!
