One minute there I was minding my own business trying to keep score as The Cash Surfing Network hijacked the Sweeva Surf Party.
I was trying to handle that rather tricky task of trying to talk, write and add up at the same time and doing it with my usual level of organized confusion and perpetual bewilderment.
Then there was…nothing. Sweeva stopped sweeving. I was no longer on Spreecast and the internet was disconnected from my life.
Soon a new page opened up on my computer telling me my broadband connection had been lost. Lost? How could it be lost? I don’t know much about the internet but I am pretty sure my internet connection lives inside a box called a router three floors below me.
So I managed to go downstairs where I found the internet pretty much where I thought it would be and using all my technical skills was able to turn it on again.
But when I got back my count was all wrong…how would I catch up? Thankfully Brenda kept score and was able to save the day…thanks Brenda you saved the day…again.
Not that keeping score was strictly necessary when it came to the team contest. Every other page shown was for The Cash Surfing Network. Seriously. They dominated. Crushed it. Nobody else stood a chance.
Put it like this…here is the top three for the team contest.
- Cash Surfing Network – 45 pages shown – 50K xp
- Lucky 13 – 20 pages shown – 25K xp
- Team Kore4 – four pages shown – 10K XP
Where were SurfAholics Alpha? Where were The Strays? They hardly got a look in.
What was even sweeter for CSN was that this was the first Sweeva Surf Party where we were trying something new.
Jon had flicked a switch which transformed winning bids into XP for the duration of the party…so for every page that CSN (and everyone else for that matter) got shown the team member who placed the bid got rewarded with XP.
And talking of bids…the average bid during the hour was 11,525 credits.
Over at the individual competition there was the usual intense rivalry with Legacy taking top spot, Robert Arnold coming second and Eric Goettman and Lynn tying for third place.
So thanks to everyone for making it another totally awesome surf party…coming up next some of the pages which really stood out for me.
