    Owing to going away with work, I won't be competing, but can I make another suggestion (which I could then look after)

    From the quarter finals, how about having all picks confidentially emailed to a non-entrant - that way people won't win "by default"
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
