Sig III is Now Boarding!
      #445427 - 12/02/17 12:51 PM

To: Mike Overly

Mike, I tried to register. It asked me what city in NC did the Wright
brothers first fly in. I answered Kitty Hawk and it was not accepted.
(Actually, they flew *near* it.) What should I have answered?

Kitty Hawk is the winning answer, regardless. Sometimes the challenge question fails, so if you'll let me know what email address you'd like to register with via pm or mail I'll go rig the system.

In the meantime, here is a quick video tutorial to get you up to speed at the new place.

Unless the question changes, apparently.

It now wants to know: "In what way were the Wright Brothers related to each other?"

Fraternally is not the answer.

You're over thinking it. <g>

I'm pretty sure the answers are intended to be "stupidly simple" - but just offbeat enough to stump a bot.

But sometimes it just does not work, even with the correct answer. In my
case, Mike said Kitty Hawk was the correct answer, but when I used that I
still could not register.

I wonder if the answer was case sensitive.

Sounds right. In that case, it didn't work :-)

Kitty Hawk may be the answer Mike wants but they flew at Kill Devil Hills.

But, Dick, that is not the purpose of the "random" question. It is
sufficient to ask something like, "How many colors are in the U.S. national
flag?" It does not have to be, "Who was the third guy off the Titanic?"

Hi Ward,

Umm . . . is white a color? Asking for a friend.
