Firefox, TBH, I was a little disappointed with the non response to my quiz last night, so I’ll have to sit back and have rethink for the future.
Nobody but nobody posted.

Well I am genuinely sorry. I rarely look in this section of the board and forgot. I genuinely could have answered most of the questions posed, and I'm disappointed for you as well as it's an interesting quiz, and I love quizzes.

I think Firefox is right though. Perhaps in General it will generate more interest as not many bother with Hobbies/Books section.
