How do you (turn off smart quotes) In Word 97-2003, it's under Tools > AutoCorrect Options. In Word 2007 it's under Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect Options. Either place, you can turn off unhelpful features like "smart quotes" and "capitalize things that you think are the beginnings of sentences e...

Someone needs to just do this. I started on something similar once like 3 years ago but then I got busy with a project or some crap and I never finished it. It's done. http://philgroce.com/software/qbtools-1.0.0.tar.gz I've been using this for TRASH since I got sick of Word, around 1997. (I was sic...

I agree that the subtitle should not have been underlined. In games seris like the Legend of Zelda, the subtitle is necesarry but in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (a game obscure enough already) I felt that needing the subtitle was just overkill. Luckily I was able to pull out the subtitle when I was prompted (I ...

outside of pet areas, 3 Veronica Mars, 2 Friday Night Lights, 2 Studio 60 q's say hi. Glib, but not factually correct: Veronica Mars: Only two mentions. There's a Rob Thomas TU and a bonus part on Jason Dohring (in the context of being a second-gen Scientologist) Friday Night Lights: The word "frid...

Re: re:

FWIW, video games were capped at 1/1 for the tournament. This is interesting because, as Coelacanth's post confirms, I'm sure I'm not the only person who thought there seemed to be way more than that. As I noted above, however, this may simply have been because I don't know anything about them, alt...

Quickfire comments: Video games: enough already. 1/1 per round is plenty. I'm not looking at the question set, but some rounds seemed to contain 2/2 or even 2/3 either way....I recognize that these games have a place in the TRASH canon, but when more than 10% of the questions are about them it make...
