March points table

February's points table was dominated by Anthony, who gains ten bonus points. Five to Matt Lemieux (a.k.a Matt) in a distant second place and three to Moffitt the Prophet for coming in third. Although Anthony has a formidable lead, there are currently around 715 points still on offer.

March points table

219: Moffitt the Prophet
45: Anthony
20: Peter J
17: H. Goldsmith
10: Joshua, Mandy
8: Psychodougie
UPDATE: Only seven eleven days into March and already Moffitt has equalled surpassed more than doubled Anthony's record for most points scored in a single month (=79, set back in December 2007). How high can he go?
The record for most points awarded overall in a single month is still comfortably held by July 2007: 321 points split between 19 competitors.
UPDATE: March 2008 just managed to surpass July 2007: 329 points split between 7 people.
Eight points for correctly identifying the building.

it looks like the cathedral in florence, aka the duomo (and if the dome where in the shot it would give it away), more properly the basilica di santa maria del fiore. it might be something else, but i'm pretty sure it has to be in italy somewhere.

Bingo - with David as your pic, I'd be surprised if you'd got it wrong. Eight points.

i dabbled in art history in college before settling on literature. always had a soft spot for the italian renaissance. the art, anyway.

oh, and i finally got a more realistic profile picture.

Have you ever been to Firenze?

I think your old profile pic is more lifelike.

unfortunately not - never really left north america, except for a extremely brief tour of northern europe with a group from high school, when i was maybe 15. someday, when the kids are older.

I have very fond memories of a trip to Europe with my parents when I was 10. Dad did a six month job exchange with a guy in London and we got to travel a little while we were over there.

Seeing you change your profile pic prompted me to change mine. I've had the old one up since I started.

Except I decided to go from photo to art.

Matt said...

Matt and Matt Lemieux are the same person... Namely, me. :-)

byron smith said...

Shhh, you end up with more points this way... OK, I'll combine your scores.

I like to think of myself as the Shane Warne of points-scoring...first to 500, then retire before I get overtaken...

(Actually, I doubt I could retire, really)

Has anyone checked Moffitt's arm action yet? I could swear I saw him straighten his arm on that last keystroke...

There have been accusations, but since he is such a big contributer to my traffic, they are being overlooked.
