Andrew Armstrong on the Einstein Factor

This is good. This is great. This is excellent.

My writing colleague, Andrew Armstrong, was on the Einstein Factor tonight.

His special subject was Aryton Senna, the Formula One racer who died tragically in 1993, and he got 1950 points, coming second to Ami someone. Jeff - the other contestant - smashed dramatically.

How did I know Armstrong? That's easy. I studied with him at Box Hill Institute of TAFE, and he and I took Desktop Publishing together. We were always making Leone Peguero laugh. This was in 2003, my first full year there.

Andrew, if you're blogging around, do say hello to me, please. I would like to know what you're writing now.

You did an excellent job on the Einstein Factor.

For those of you who are reading this blog overseas, The Einstein Factor is a quiz show where everybody has a special subject. Their subject may run the gamut from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (by Douglas Adams) to Australian Prime Ministers. In the first round you get asked 15 questions and another special one which you can answer or give to the Brainstrust. Then there is the second round with all sorts of questions which are multiple choice, and the third round is a mix of general knowledge and specialist subjects.
