My one suggestion for anyone organizing a tournament of this type is that moderators should calculate the powers/gets/negs tally and rank the players per the rules before turning in spreadsheets. Five minutes could have been saved if all Joe and I had to do was input the score and ranks into the spreadsheet.

I'm not sure if this was a problem because I was doing stats all day, but if eight or nine people are giving a random guess at the end of tossups, that could eat up a lot of time and should be discouraged in the interest of time.

The stats show Rob as getting two 10's and zero negs on the Jerry packet, but he actually got two negs and zero 10's. The top room, alas, was not quite adequate to getting all 20 questions in Jerry's packet.)
This was a mistake and has been fixed, sorry.

The format used for the name was the same that early indicated that Mike Bentley had left and been replaced by Gautam, so I kept "Foster" in to be safe.

Also, I suspect that Auroni's 0-2-2 match must have occurred in Round 5 and not in Round 6, since that wouldn't make any sense. But, as you say, these are inconsequential, since the final scores seem to be correct; these just clarify what the heck is going on in the scoresheets.
What would make a difference is the fact that the original announcement said that the scores would include a correction factor for the rounds where players read on their byes (provided that they were supposed to be in the top room for that round)
I got the round six scoresheet for the top room before the round five scoresheet, and so inputted that first before realizing the top room was actually a scoresheet behind and sending Joe to pick it up. Something must have messed up when I fixed that mixup. This probably resulted in Auroni's score being misplaced. Joe said that Tommy told him to ignore the correction factor because it was too complicated.
