    Default Questions for Ken

    Hi Ken,
    I submitted my first two solutions via snail mail and I see my name on the website. I submitted the third one via email with an attached excel file.
    I sent it on 1/20/06 - My question is: first, is it okay to submit them via email with an attachment?
    And, if I don't see my name on the list for puzzle 3 does this mean I have it wrong?

    Many Thanks,
    Sky

    Hey Sky!

    Good job on the first three!

    Just saw your post and figured I would post, since I can answer one of your questions... It is OK to submit your answers via e-mail (w/ an attachment). As a matter of fact, it seems to be the preferred way thus far--for obvious reasons. I have submitted all of my answers thus far through e-mail and have had no problems (except any stupid mistakes I've made and caused myself a 15 day delay in resubmitting!).

    Good luck!

    My understanding is that soon there is supposed to be a form right on Ken's website for submission. I know Ken has been out of town...think he gets back today, so maybe the form will be up soon.

    Default Your Check

    Hey Sky,

    Thanks for your question.

    If you see your name up for a certain puzzle, it means that a check went out.

    We will be updating our site probably once a week which will add new winners.

    Sorry, was out of town for a bit and now have a ton of papers to correct. I will be sending out checks tomorrow on Saturday. We hope that the list will be updated either Monday or Tuesday. If you do not see your name, it probably means that your answer was not correct. (Please be sure to wait the 15 days to resubmit.)

    Thanks.

    Thanks guys!
    I'm hoping to see my name posted on number 3 on your next update!
    I'm in no hurry for the checks, just wanted to make what I submitted was correct and submitted in the correct way -- I guess I'll find out if I need to re-submit soon!
    (say it ain't so!)

    Thanks,
    Sky

    Sounds like my sister-in-law! (She's a teacher.)

    Hope it was a fun trip, Ken!

    I hear you Publius! I'm doing the waiting game as well! I think I need to slow down a bit. I sure am enjoying this puzzle book! I get so excited when the "Ah-ha!" light goes on, that I try to get it done too quickly.

    A little advice for those to follow...don't spit into the wind, and make sure you have your puzzle in order before submitting!
    The choices we make today will dictate the lives we lead tomorrow.

    Keep your eye on the prize.

    Ya know, Salkns brings up a very good point...one that I'm sure most of us have already learned from the hard way:

    Double-check your answers before submitting them! The "penalty" is a 15-day wait period!

    Now, we all understand how exciting it is when you have that "a-ha!" moment...and, we also understand how much you start rushing to finish the entire puzzle! I'm talking myself into the same advice as I type this.................relax.....................the extra time taken to submit the correct answer is MUCH shorter than the 15 days to resubmit!

    Now...I just need my next "a-ha!" moment!

    Default Checking your answers

    Hey, at least everyone knows that we are checking the answers and not just allowing someone to put anything down on a piece of paper to try and claim a prize.

    Good Luck To Everyone.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.
