Gee, I wonder who is going to win? Maybe the TV network needs to trim expenses, like prize money.

Hi guy! :)

Hmm ... I used to think I was pretty good at that show, but hard to beat a computer, thinks me. Still, I heard some chess player beat a computer not that long ago, so there's hope :)

I always thought the prize money was kind of chintzy for that show, especially given how hard it is to win -- but on the bright side, the computer won't want much ;)
