Silly Games; catch the sheep

This is part of the BBC website and I am wasting far too much time on it today.

Try and hit the sheep and then have a good strong cup of coffee and see if your reaction times improve. I went from sluggish snail to bumbling bobcat.

Go me :holysheep:

Do you think they're being sponsored by the coffee marketing board? It told me I need a cup of coffee as well!

I got as far as bumbling bobcat, and apparently I should have a cup of coffee as well.

And I always do what I'm told.

It looks OK to me - and Glo's post is marked as 9.47pm for me. :thinking:

Is the clock on the front page, just underneath the noticeboard, correct for you? You might need to change the time settings in your profiles - the board time is set to GMT/UTC.

Jae,

You are correct, the clock on the front page is on BST, one hour ahead.

It would be lovely if we were getting summer weather to go with it! :D

My clock is right now.

I had to go into board preferences. The time does say GMT/UTC, but underneath is a selection for summer time. I had to click 'no' - that did the trick.

Jae and Ernest, it sounds as though you need to remove the summertime setting in your profiles - you choose your own time setting.

Like Jae I make Roketing Rabbit, but then neoiter do I drink coffee, just tea, prefeably LapSang, but usually Gumboot. But I do have an advantage of working with sheep and always watching for the dozen or so that want to make a break for it. One goes and others immediately follow. I think we would all do better if they let us have a dog to catch the sheep, instead of a dart, I'm out of practice with a blow pipe. :D
