Retroactive Blog Points

Retroactively awarding some blog points for correct answers to math questions previously posted.
2 points per correct answer. I'm going to give myself 1 blog point for each question that stumps the (somewhat less than massive) readership for at least one week.

Kimota94 receives 8 blog points for correctly solving One Of My Turns, Speak To Me, Word Problem, and the first half of the Big Number Problem.

Vish gets 2 blog points for his answer to the second part of the Big Number Problem. I'll also give him 1 point for his answer to One Of My Turns because it came after Kimota's answer was already published and acknowledged as correct.

And cjg gets 1 blog point for getting the answer to Brain Damage - but through a brute force mechanism rather then the theoretical/calculable method I was looking for.

I get 3 blog points for the unsolved (or incorrectly 'solved') questions Biding My Time, Math Is Fun, and Making Change.

This vaults Kimota94 well into the lead for blog points.

I better start scoring on some of these points. Between your blog and Kimota94's blog I've got a whole ZERO points!!

Hey, don't you give out points for anyone who manages to out-pick you on the weekend NFL games? I think you should. =D

I was actually thinking about suggesting you award some retroactive pts, but didn't want to appear petty. Great minds think alike... and small minds seldom differ! ;-)
