BLAST! I KNEW THE ANSWER, TOO!

Took Sploofus 2 minutes to bring up the screen for the Daily Trivia Question.
I knew the answer and clicked on it IMMEDIATELY. Didn't matter because Sploofus said I exceeded the 30 second timer. Rats! There has got to be a better way of submitting the answer. How about this? Display the question page but keep the question hidden or maybe encoded. Using Javascript, reveal the question and start a LOCAL timer. When the answer is submitted, send back the answer AND the elapsed time for verification. I'm sure that someone can hack around this to cheat by Googling the answer, but I'm just to to find an easy way of avoiding the inclusion the round trip network time. Get a momentarily busy Internet or a busy machine and it is all but impossible to submit an answer in time.

submit a support ticket - they'll reset for you, although you won't get the same question

Submit a trouble ticket. You should be able to get a new TQOTD. Good luck!
