OK, folks, I have finally gotten a chance to put together the stats for the year, which also means officially naming the winner.

(I apologize for the delay - work, and life in general, have been more than a little hectic for the last month or so. In fact, things have been quite busy for almost a year. But, the project I was working on went live today, so here we are...)

So, without further ado, lets get to the winner, shall we? Winners in fact, as this year we have a tie. Will Galen won two of the last four to pull even with RoboDoug with 10 wins.

mildlysane was a distant 3rd with 7 wins, which is still a pretty respectable total.

As some of you might remember, there is an award that goes along with winning, a nice plaque. Or at least a "virtual" plaque. They are just about the right size of an avatar if so desired. So, here they are...

Full statistics for the season are posted as well. You can find them at http://uk1.able-towers.com/~doug/robodoug/07-08/stats.html (http://uk1.able-towers.com/%7Edoug/robodoug/07-08/stats.html)

And while I'm at it, I never got around to posting last year's winner, either. My apoligies again, especially to tora tora, whose 7 wins bested both pwee31 and Doug with 6.

Well, folks, that's it for this year. Maybe this summer I'll make good on that plan to rewrite RoboDoug's guessing engine...

Thanks, Doug.

Next year I might even fix that nasty "admin's names don't get recorded right" bug...

Man, I used to play this all the time. I didn't play once all last season.

Next year I'm hitting every game.

I'm setting it as a personal goal.

Didn't even knew, that 05-06 was my co-year (as peacers):) Nice to know! But since then have only played couple of times!

Personally I wish I ad kept track of the number of W's and L's I guessed correctly.

That's one I don't automatically total up into the stats page. Sorry.

Shade: Behold the power of SQL and relational databases!

You were 42 of 67 for 63%.

That's not bad. The best guesser with over 20 guesses (indyblue47) was only at 70%. There's a handful of others in the 63% - 68% range.

You didn't call the next day. My database is not happy.

What? I don't get a banner for having a perfect guess? ;)

This is a lot of fun and I thank you for providing it for us. I am going to try to participate more next year as well.

You didn't tell me about the virus. "I've just been scanned, you said." Liar.

I have to admit of I've thought about that a couple of times. My ego says I'm good enough to do that - at the very least it is both an interesting and difficult problem. My favorite type. But, it IS a very difficult problem and would really be time consuming. And my gut feeling is that the margins would be too thin to make the risk/reward worth it.

I'm going to bump this once to make sure all those interested had a chance to see it.

Thanks Doug, interesting results. I was a pre-season all-star. Then went on the waiver wire for most of the season.

Bump, since I've gotten this years guesses set up.

FAQ coming soon...
