Answers and scores have been posted. Thanks everyone for playing and I hope you had more fun than frustration on this one.

sldawgs, you had PM'ed me twice and the second PM replaced one of your correct answers with an error but I was feeling generous and gave you the 2 points anyway. I don't think anyone will mind.

Thanks, I thought I had accidentally erased it when I was cleaning out my mailboxes so I resubmitted it and type From Hell for some reason instead of Sleepy Hollow. It's all for fun, right?
Headed for the grocery store, Wish me luck.

Dammit... I kept going back and forth between Office Space and Election

I choose... poorly.

Is there anything distinctive in the shot that I'm overlooking? It's been years since I've seen Office Space but I seriously thought this was just a nearly impossible to ID window shot and yet a lot of people got it right...

I hate to argue, but I think that I only got one wrong.... I didn't get Sleepy Hollow, but I am sure that my last PM had all of the others correct.
Hooray for capsicum!

Well, its a little tough to see, but I thought Peter's reflection gave it away.

Office Space was my first thought. Luckily, it was correct.... even if I did screw up sending my answers in.

Wow, you've got good eyes... I was too busy looking out the window instead of at the window -- All those lights look more office-like than school-like :doh:

The only PM from you I got has no answers for 1 and 8 and an error for 7. It's dated Tuesday, October 28th @ 17:09 GMT. :?

Ulkesh -- do you still have an unread PM from me dated Wed Oct 22, 2008 8:26 pm

I have one in my Outbox but obviously I got my score here... Not sure if there's a bug in the system or what.

Nope, no unread PMs. I'm guessing the forums' move to the new host screwed some things up. Looking at my inbox I also see that some people managed to delete PMs that I had read so I'm guessing they also still had stuff in their Outbox and decided to just go ahead and delete it.
