    Thanks, although I really haven't whored it out the way I used to when participation peaked at the YEC and AO. But still, this is good.

    And I promise to resume all the scoreboard updates every other day or so, as well as the pretty 20 Answers thread . Things were really chaotic here around French Open time, so the only thing I had time to do on TAT was win a couple SPs .
