I think we should abandon any idea of a race with QI. They've made 20 posts in the last two days, putting them 320 ahead on 3052. We haven't moved for six days and there doesn't seem to be much interest at the moment.

I agree, if we ever get at all close again, maybe we can start it again?

How are we going to get close again? Unless they start going backwards...

That really doesn't seem to be working at the moment :wink:

I'm quite happy to continue the game indefinitely, but it needs a minimum of two committed players. I can't make another post until someone posts 2733.

Well, that puts us a whopping 675 ahead of QI! What a shame we're not allowed to go up 1001 at a time...

His maths is worse :lol: , but it was good to be 'ahead' of QI! :D
