That is funny. I can't get more than a few games in a row without having to start a game over. I tried one time to play free cell with a deck of cards while camping once. I couldn't do it. I am too used to the computer making my moves for me.

Quote I've lost some of my skills, though. My best streak on this computer is only 51 wins in a row. *sigh* Right now, I'm at 12 wins.


For what it is worth, I read before that only 1 game of the 30000+ on the Windows version is supposed to be impossible to win...

That one game that is supposedly impossible to win is #11982. I cannot say that I have played every one of the 30.000 plus games, but I have tried this one - I would agree that 11982 is impossible . . . for what it is worth.

I'm really looking forward to going to Stone Mountain this year.
I plan on launching at least five hitchhikers, if not more

I'd like to post them before I go. But what if I have 'failure to launch'?

Is it possible to change a launch date after posting a HH?

Yes, you can change the launch date at any point.

Due to the amount of rain here I put in my clue the day I will plant my box and don't ya know it pours that whole weekend!!? Then I go out the next weekend and the sheriffs decide to have lunch where I want to plant (oh no officer really there are no drugs in the bushes in that little container). Too many questions ya know so I drive away for yet another day.

Then I see all these hits on my clue and I get frustrated that they will give up on my box.

Can you put a little note in the clue until you get a chance to plant it? Just slip it in at the top of the clue.

Then when you actually plant it, you can take it off and post a big "Finally Planted -- Name of Box" post.

That's what I do. Date finally planted and then updated. I think a launch date is great for boxers planning a trip and knowing there will be more boxes there when there get there.

Mama Cache, I think you are not too far from me.
