a partial answer... I'll be back later. [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Well, I must say that "most" of you are pretty smart and can count, too, as there were lots of right answers on Wednesday. Let's see how you do today!

Your Questions of the Day:

1. Who does Gandalf call an old rascal?
Bilbo?

2. What creature blows the horn as Frodo and Sam watch the Black Gate open?
It's a troll... please tell me I don't need to know what kind... I know someone will know what kind... I know a soundtrack friend named it and for some reason I've got Olog-hai (or some similar spelling) in my head.

3. What kind of pipe-weed does Merry say he'd give anything for a whiff of in Fangorn?
Bilbo talks about Old Toby... am trying to hear Merry's voice or notice the barrels. I'm going to come back to this question later.

4. Where does Eomer take the badly wounded Theodred?
Back to Meduseld.

5. Where on the Balrog's body does Gandalf make a first strike with his weapon?
ummm... on the breast?

6. What battle in the The Two Towers does Barrie Osborne make a cameo appearance in?
I'm guessing Helm's Deep.

I'll post one more set of questions on Friday, and then the answers and scorecard of how everyone ranks on Saturday.

BONUS ROUND:

I was playing around with the spellchecker, and while it is much improved from our old Board one, it seems it has a few glitches. For example, here are the spellings it gave me as possible alternatives for the name "Theodred":

Tattered
Tottered
Tatered
Twittered
Tutored

Questions:

1. Which of those names did the spellchecker miss, which meant I had to add it manually?
'those names'... indefinite pronouns.. the bane of my life. By 'those names' do you mean the names from your question list... I thought so at first and answered like this:

I'm not sure I follow you. I wou

Quote
ld assume quite a few names would show up as incorrect... but you would have already typed them and so I don't understand 'add manually'... unless you're talking about the very correct spelling that would include accents. But you didn't use any accents so that would mean you didn't 'add them manually'. (I always angst over what the instructor is actually asking... )
If you want the names the spellchecker wouldn'r recognize I'll say:
  • Gandalf
  • Frodo
  • pipe-weed
  • Fangorn
  • Eomer
  • Theodred
  • Balrog's
depending on the spell checker... it might recognize both Barrie and Osborne.
If you're talking about adding your own accents then the answer would be
  • Eomer / …omer
  • Theodred / Thťodred


But then I ran spell check and realized one of 'the names' in the alternate possibilites for Theodred was incorrectly spelled so now I think you wanted me to find that word (which was tatered) which you added manually to that particular list. See, it makes sense when one knows the intention.


2. What alternative way(s) to spell Theodred is missing from "your "list, when you spellcheck his name? Post your answers here so we can inform the Admins right away!

Thťodred (I think this is what you're looking for...)

A few of you need some "extra" points, so here is your chance to catch up -- have fun!

no longer just aMagpie... I'm now *the* Magpie
