For question 11... do you mean in one module? Or the maximum amount of memory supported on one motherboard? Or the maximum sold as a "matched pair"?

Sure:

It'll be a tie between the No-Doz people and the sedative people
This was an attempt at being funny, and probably didn't go well. For those of us unaware of the challenge and nature of cricket, this thing of matches going on for days and days, followed by being outscored 456 to 3 and still being close is quite ... strange. At least, it is for me.

So instead of saying I have no clue, I vote for a tie between the No-Doz manufacturers (who make little caffeine pills to help you stay awake, since it seems boring and drawn out) or the sedative manufacturers, who make little pills to help you calm yourself down and not get so agitated (since those who actually understand may get far too excited, and may need to settle down).

Thinking about it, those who would fall asleep will go somewhere else, so let me break the tie and say it will be the sedative people...

Default Re: "I wonder what the New Year will bring..." (2007)

Wow, I was just viewing some old threads and came across this. This was... ages ago.

After 10 years, I officially apologize for not completing this and selecting the winners.

I don't know if I can get all the right answers (since it might require checking some historical data), but when I have time I will sit and go thorugh this. I hate leaving stuff unfinished.

Happy Re: "I wonder what the New Year will bring..." (2007)

And more than 2 years after my last post, I finally (11 years late) announce the results and winners.

The only question I couldn't verify is 14. The website doesn't host the results and I could only find partial ones on the threads here. If Bungleau can maybe share his spreadsheets if he still has them (he used to keep weekly statistics).

We have a 3-way tie. johnny, Hivetyrant and Bungleau are the joint winners. Perhaps Q14 would have been a tie-breaker, but now we'll never know...

Results
johnny 7 (I was amazed he got first 6 questions right, but then he only got 1 more)
Hivetyrant 7
Bungleau 7
Aelia Jusa 6
Felix the Assassin 6
Ivelliis 4

Correct answers:
1 Who will win the cricket World Cup?
Australia

2 Will England qualify to the UEFA Euro 2008?
B No

3 Who will be the winner of the Super Bowl?
B AFC (Colts)

4 What nationality will the winner of Tour de France be?
Spain (Alberto Contador)

5 The winner of the presidential elections in France will be
A Sarkozy

6 Osama bin Laden will be:
C Neither

7 At the end of the year, 1.00 EUR will be equal to:
C More than 1.4USD

8 At the end of the year, price of an ounce of gold will be:
C More than 800USD

9 Will Dragon Age be released?
B No

10 Will the starting of production of Starcraft 2 be officially announced?
A Yes

11 The highest desktop memory capacity (a single module) sold at http://www.newegg.com will be:
A 8GB or less https://web.archive.org/web/20080101...17&name=Memory

12 Will Ocean's Thirteen be released?
A Yes

13 Which continent will the winner of the Noble Prize in Literature be from?
A Europe (at the time she was in UK)

14 The person with most monthly wins in Ironworks Trivia Contest will be:
(canít find results)

15 The number of forums at the end of the year will be (excluding archives):
C Looks like 19. https://web.archive.org/web/20080119...orum/index.php

Detailed spreadsheet in attachment.

Congrats to the winners!
