Spoilers for Tuesday 21st August 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 40)

It's Adam Rolston's sixth game. Will he be the first octochamp of the series? Will he lose his last heat game like those other guys? Who knows. Might not even get there. Whack on channel 4 right now to see how he does today.

What about this TOWAGES contoversy? Has the ODO been updated recently to make it invalid or is it
another of Ms Dent's whims?

Took me an embarrassingly long time to remember what NEUROMAS + T was...

It's listed as a mass noun in the free version. What's the reason for allowing it? (It's on Apterous, just for the record.)

TOWAGES has been on apterous since the beginning. It was last offered by DC in 2005 (http://wiki.apterous.org/Episode_3930).
I suspect the second definition of being a charge for something, e.g. HAULAGE/CAKEAGE, used to be one of the sort of mass nouns you could pluralize.

Fun fact: First 3 letters of round 10 were EID. Today (August 21st) is the first day of Eid.

I'm glad someone noticed that! :) We celebrate it here where I am!

Alternative to R6: ((25 x 2) + 6) x 10 + (4 x 3)

This was the way my mum did it, she promptly felt very proud of herself for getting one right :)
