Sparky, Julie, you are welcome!

Skofus' party spilled out onto the streets of Bergen. I don't know what Uli was serving, but in any case our roving reporter was high when he took this picture:

Yes, Uli - Skofus is top performer this time too., by a considerable margin!

Our roving reporter has just returned from the Dvorak Society's party, which this time was held in Antonin's birthplace:

In third place this time is dg6580004, picking up on the bike picture I think, with:
Now THAT'S a face plant.......

Second goes to Lynn, picking up on this post in the minicities thread:
Michael, looking deep for stats page.

The first place goes to Richard, with:
David Anderson's immediate reaction to my recent email on initial runtime estimates.

but since that post is not part of the competition, I declare Lynn the winner. PM sent.

LOL to Sparky for the stats (we'll call them April 1st stats I think).

The script is working, I was somehow getting confused. That indicates that things like consistency checks or helpful extra output are not as good as they should be, so I will try to improve them.

Julie, Sparky, Lynn, Uli, you are welcome!

Sorry, my little script is misbehaving, no idea why. I will post the stats when I can fix it and keep collecting data in the meantime.
