Please note:
After some questions were raised regarding question 3 for round 5 of Oct i have decided to give no penalties for a answer that differed from my answer. Apologies for being vague in my initial 'clue'
I have amended the scores and hope everyone are happy with it!
It will mean now that Karl have moved into 1st spot together with Scorpy. jfthibeau moved one place up....
Kind regards
BGS
