Who Wants To Be a Linux Geek? Linux.com's Own Trivia Game

As part of the festivities for Linux.com's second birthday, we hosted four Linux trivia events. Whoever answered the most questions, won a prize package from ThinkGeek. By popular request, we're posting the logs from these events, so that people can go back and remember all of the interesting questions we came up with for these events.

May 17th, part 1   Page 1 of 3  >>


--- starlady has changed the topic to: Welcome to Live! Our next event is the Linux Trivia Game beginning at 10 AM PDT. /msg search trivia rules for the rules and play to win nifty prizes from ThinkGeek!
<starlady> Ok, we're going to get started here in just a couple of minutes so here're the rules
<starlady> I've got a list of 20 questions on Linux and open source history, and some errata
<starlady> I'll paste one into the channel, then unmoderate it
<starlady> First person with the correct answer gets a point
<starlady> This means that if everyone guesses and no one gets it you can keep guessing
--- ChanServ gives channel operator status to goodness
<starlady> So if your lagtime to your server is high I suggest changing now ;)
--- ChanServ gives channel operator status to influx
<starlady> If there is a tie at the end of 20 questions we will go to a sudden death round of 5 questions among the tied people
<starlady> and from there on out I'll wing it ;)
<starlady> You can ' /msg search trivia rules ' for the abbreviated rules
<starlady> Linux.com staff and VA/OSDN staff are ineligible
<starlady> so don't play ;)
<Matt> starlady, how about openprojects staff?
<starlady> Any inappropriateness will wind up in getting you kicked as this is supposed to be fun for all
<starlady> OPN staff can play :)
<starlady> so to recap: first person with the correct answer gets a point, most points wins cool ThinKGeek stuff!
