They weren't posted there because of the Oxford mirror, which just finished.

Why aren't they posted on quizbowpackets.com, by the way?
Because of the Oxford mirror, and George directed a tournament this past weekend.

I was aware of the mirrors over the weekend, but often these sets have been posted literally within hours of the last mirror of them. I wasn't upset not to see them, just wondering why this time it wasn't quite as quickly.

Stop being ridiculous. People have lives to attend to that don't revolve around posting sets with the utmost speed.

Jerry's right. Sometimes they're posted quickly, sometimes things happen. If it's been two weeks, I would understand, but many of us involved in quizbowl do quizbowl tournament-related things on the weekend, and sometimes this involves things that take a long time.
