I don’t think we’ve quite whipped pp Pascal.

Sorry I haven’t got the solutions up yet. I’m under the gun on a
work deadline and haven’t had time to go through them. I’ll get to
it sometime tomorrow.

A suggestion I wanted to make for a while:
Would it not be appropriate to sort the Quiz Archives on the LHS of
the page in descending order, having the most recent quizzes on top of
the page?

Yes. It has been brought up before. There are issues with it
though, since the quiz site is maintained by scripts…
