    Todd: thanks for chiming in here. Can you upload video of this technique? That would solve things rather quickly. Thanks!!

DO you really want to see a real LOW time then" yeah again he wasn't too happy with my reply.”

    I've had this discussion with David Yancey each time i've been to his house trying to replicate this technique where you must glide your skiers left arm looking at the screen through a flag post and then glide back to the left it will reduce your speed time, this is rather hard to replicate but i was able to do this method the last time i visited him, but with out a finished completed time. If you feel that at this current time that the score should be removed , you have my blessing, but in no way back then did i use the A/B button glitch to make that score.

All I know for sure is that none of my scores from the newsletter were ever entered into TG until I provided further proof directly to TG. Maybe the other people who are in the Activision newsletter and the TG database did the same thing? Does that help to clarify my previous statement?
    I cant say this with 100% accuracy, but the scores entered from any Activision newsletter came when requested by the player. The TG database needed a bit more info than just name and score - putting these in without the player involvement from a 3rd party was pretty low on the to do list when the online database was being populated.
