    A hopeful update on our Ronnie. He hasn't read the email I sent him from the forum and missed all the games, which worried me, but he made two transfers in his fantasy football team the other I am hopeful that he is still alive and kicking at least. Let's hope the River of Scotland makes a return soon.

    Sorry Simon, I did reply to your email but you obviously didn't get it. Serious illness in the family, another death and all the stuff that goes with that, the furthest thing from my mind was the basho. I will hopefully be back in the New Year and making my way back up the banzukes.

    Bench Sumo entry site is currently displaying an error message for me....

    Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool.  This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached.

    Me too :-(

    He is not the easiest guy to contact sometimes. I will try again this morning...and he should see it before the deadline. Very unusual. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone.

    I just entered my selections. Probably too late but the problem seems to have been fixed thank goodness.

    You say this as though you believe it only affects you.  I suspect with all the kuyjos most people's default picks are pretty bad.  I personally put very little thought into them, generally picking the 6 highest ranked guys and 4 random maegashira.

    lol, you haven't seen my default. Obviously I don't know if my opponent is affected by this or not, but , if not, I should be looking at a loss.

    Selections are still not working at this time, but I shall try again later.

    Ozeki Tochinoshin trained with Tochiouzan at home and was 7-9. He managed to get his favorite grip only once in all the matches, and after managing that zero times yesterday against Goueidou, maybe there is reason for concern. "AAAAHHH.." he was heard shouting. "Difficult..Yesterday i was hopeless against Goueidou. I'm sad because I can't win. Am I just weak or is Tochiouzan in very good shape?" he asked himself. "Still, if I keep thinking it's bad it's bad it's bad I will start feeling bad.. That is the number one bad thing. I have to go about my business feeling strong.." he summed.

    He'll be a Fireball at the basho

    (If Ronnie decides to play, he will play instead of Bozhanitakara.)  Ronnie, you have 24 hours (until 11:30 am Japan time tomorrow, to decide whether you are in, or not!)

    I am now going to work out what this all means regarding teams and things....

    Sorry Jejima, I didn't sign into the forum at all during the basho :-(

    I'm not able to enter Bench. It's giving the message that entries for day 15 are closed.

    All the other games I play are fine.

    Fixed now.

    Thank you.
