Now Picnic Activate! (26 Mar 2005 at 08:52)
It's Puzzlestorm 2005! Despite having only 10 hours of notice (they just told us last night at midnight that it was going to be today), we've arranged a great team, called Now Picnic, which will win puzzlestorm once and for all!

Chart our progress on the scoreboard...

Good band names generated during brute force search for answers to "fill in the blanks":

come spy in
i hack pops
i pinch i do
income pit
non bolder
non bopper
nun pepsin
once i bold
only i bold
ooh snider
poncho dip
ski sniper
sky or deli
sun slider

I kind of like "income deli" and "sky or deli" for its unusual grammatical structure for a band name.

"they might be giants" is pretty unusual in being an entire sentence. maybe I should start a band called "I wonder what happens if I push this button?"

(I guess they never updated the final scoreboard!)

We came in third. Another team solved 8 puzzles, but got more "points" from solving early. The first place team solved the meta-puzzle.. we were ignoring it, but eventually all the extensions caught up with us. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the result.
