Well, we seem to have weathered our first full round after being tossed
abruptly out of our comfortable Parlor and out into the cold, cruel
Webworld. We've even welcomed back a couple of former Dixonarians!

Two players, Chris Carson and Dave Cunningham, guessed rightly that a
tragopan is an Asian pheasant, which gave Chris four points and the deal
for the upcoming round. Two others, both residents of England--John Barrs
and Marijke van Gans--*knew* somehow that a tragopan is an Asian pheasant
and were DQs; so did Tim Lodge, who *would* have been a DQ except he's been
too busy changing nappies to play this round.

(How come people in England know so much about Asian pheasants?)

The runners-up, a/k/a "real winners," with three points apiece, are Dave,
Tony Abell, Len Goran, and Russ Heimerson.

Details, below.

Over to you, Chris!

This is truly bizarre. Here's what happened.

1. I cut and pasted the results of round 1615 (posted by Dodi) as input to my scoring program.

2. I cut and pasted the output of the scoring program into the message above.

3. When I clicked to post the thread, it had replaced the output in #2 with the results in #1.

4. I verified that when I cut #2 and pasted it into Wordperfect, for instance, that it had indeed cut and pasted the output of the scoring program and NOT Dodi's results sheet.

5. What the heck is going on????
