No Fanfare, no drum rolls. Timequiz.

I have had a bad idea and the timing was not right, either. Here is the original thread:

History Quiz game

And here is the result on

For a console-game that urgently needs some more quiz-questions, install the ruby-gem with the gem-tool:
:~$ gem install timequiz
Call with -h for an option overview:
user@machine:~$ timequiz -h

Usage: timequiz [options]
    -a, --add                        Add new event
    -e, --event=EVENT                Name of the event
    -y, --year=YEAR                  Year of the event
    -b, --background=INFO            Background information
    -f, --file=FILE                  The file, where events are read from
    -d, --debug                      Be verbose
    -v, --version                    Show program version
I attach the RestructuredText-version of the man-page to this post, as there is no automatic installation for the documentation. All is though included in the gem-file that you can expand with tar and eventually gunzip.

Not sure, how to end this post... “I am sorry” or “have fun”.

Maybe just don't shoot me.
