swissalpo2 is back!

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

On April 28th 2020 I surpassed swissalpo2 in number of total points on memrise. He was my long-term goal (and secret rival). Secret as in he probably didn’t know about me pursuing him although he follows me.

He’s a pro subscriber so I started to get worried when two months ago his activity fell to zero. So in that sense it was really easy to bridge the last 4 million points that separated us. Standing still target…

With the COVID-19 pandemic going on, there’s no telling what happes to other people. So I started to get really worried. But just when I decided to write this post, he came back and put in 9000 points in one day. swissalpo2 is alive.

Welcome back!

Memrise: new point record in March 2020

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

I previously posted a screenshot of a 2 * 10^6 points monthly score in Memrise.

This time (March 2020), I was able to surpass myself… 2’240’000 points. But it wasn’t all fun, it’s turning into hard work to score that many points. Getting up 5 o’clock every morning, three sessions a day… hmpf. I know, there are other people getting even higher scores, but I also have other interests.

March 2020 was fortunate circumstances, which helped a lot…. one week alone, 31 calendar days… it all helped.
