A Hopeful Moratorium

I have noticed that Adi (whatzinaname) and I (tarantinofan) have been the main quiz setters. We both have decided to stop putting up questions for a while, instead concentrating on LSD. We will put up the LSD and other quizzes so we can have a record of sorts, and so our dear quizzing alumni can have a crack at them. Ths moratorium does not imply that others should not put up sets. We would love it if others do. Archit (chit or whatever name he’s using) and Bhargava (MS Bhai, although he hates the name) have been putting up too, but now the Onus is upon you all. Vikram has been acing all the stuff till now. Dude, if you could find the time, we would love it if you put up quizzes, too.
