Hey,
In an effort to make the THUNDER saga more interesting, here's a spreadsheet of what needs to be finished, along with who's supposed to finish it:

Uh, in the interest of full disclosure, I found out that I was going to be needed for this two days ago. I have to say, this is a remarkably effective tool for making me want to get my stuff done.

Assuming everyone adopts this, at least now I can profit from poorly-edited tournaments by placing bets on which editor will be the one to screw it up.

ah, yes. information premia are coming down to zero. the quizbowl real economy will now be more efficient. now if only we can assign AAA ratings to certain tournaments and securitize them with all the junk-tournaments, we can build a whole big financial market and make monies off this industry. after all, there needs to be some place where I can park my tossups on lipid rafts and microwave assisted reactions anyway. nobody seems to want them for any tournament, so if I pool them in with a whole bunch of good questions, it should be fine right?

Until you buy them back, and use them for your own tournament.

So with a week to go, there's something like 5 packets left to write?

Not all of us can write as prolifically and quickly as you, Greg.
