Quiz week 20

Koe Hello everybody!

So, this is my first attempt at a quiz (of some sort…) Remember, this is about revision/rehearsal, so it is not necessarily difficult 🙂

I haven't done much this week, so not much to quiz on, but, let's from now on agree that the quiz covers the past 5 DWOTD publications. Not by definition you can find the answer in an actual DWOTD post, but it will at least be related. And of course, Google and Wikipedia are your friends 🙂
Answers will be provided on Monday.

    This quiz proved to be both interesting and informative. 🙂

  3. The quiz idea is welcomed! Is it possible to make it interactive with buttons and a scoring system?

  4. @Eva – that’s a good idea. Unfortunately our weblog provider is really hopeless so it’s not possible right now. I’ve been wanting to move the blog to some place more professional, however that will take too much time right now 🙁
    Anyways, I’ll note it as future improvement 🙂
