As of this writing, Perchik has a higher score than Mirza.

But then, these numbers constantly change so who knows exactly what it will be by the time you read this. 8-)

Other high scorers that I'm aware of (with a score that's higher than 300) are ben, andrew, hossman, gailcalled, figbash, and occ.

And I believe sferik is the next one in line.

So curious. I don't understand the language in about 1/2 the questions and have to Google the terms -- always related to computer languages and now, the iPhone, about which I couldn't give two hoots. But I WOULD be interested in where the expression "two hoots" came from. I stay active because 1) I am the oldest living Flutherite, 2) I am family and 3) I have questions that trigger interesting answers here. Keeping score doesn't enter into my behavior.

That is a hoot. I have Webster's Collegiate sitting next to me as I write...thanks for doing my work for me, Modern. So much faster than me bothering.

@gail, Don't worry, we like your questions too!

gailcalled's avatar

@Perchik; thanks. I am not worrying, but I am surprised at how fast the new knowledge is growing and proliferating, and leaving me in the dust. (Another nice idiom, don''tja think?)
