Jeopardy Tests Open for Registration

To be a contestant on Jeopardy, one must first participate in a timed test online. A top percentage of those who take the test will then be selected to attend an in-person audition. Jeopardy recently opened registration for the first online stage.

Testing for the Teen Tournament will be on January 14th, 2016. The Adult tests will take place on January 26th, 27th, and 28th, 2016.

I take the test every year and never really do well. Pretty sure the closest I’ll ever get to being on Jeopardy is when I passed the Teen Tournament test in 8th grade but didn’t get called after my audition. Louisvillian Tara Anderson recently won on Jeopardy though! So my present location certainly won’t be the factor holding me back.

Time to go review that list of rivers in Europe again.

.io Isn’t Just Trendy

I had no idea that “.io” referred to a place and not just “input/output.” Learned a lot from this one.

[…] .io is also a place: a country-code top-level domain, or ccTLD, which refers to a particular place on the Earth’s surface. In this case, that place is the British Indian Ocean Territory, a remote but strategically-important scattering of islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean, also known as the Chagos Archipelago.
