OK, here's my stab at it (entirely based on quicksand):

Cathbad - And You Thought Prison Was Bad...​
chrispenycate - Reparation​
Dannymcg - My Watch​
Daysman - Following the Romanian Tradition​
Elckerlyc - Astronaut at Dino City Hall​
Elvet - Evidence​
Ian Fortytwo - Court Record: Case 12063 etc.​
M. Robert Gibson - Selfie Elfie​
mosaix - Punishment, capital!​
Parson - Justice​
Peter V - The Amazon Capital Punishment App​
Starbeast - Grime and Purgishment​
Victoria Silverwolf - On Pear Tree Lane​

And thank LibreOffice Calc for the (unasked for) lines.

I rather like them.
Oh, I do too. I'm working with Linux and thankful for the OpenOffice -> LibreOffice project.
The problem is, professionally I have always worked with Excel and become an expert user. Calc looks similar but does react differently. It's me, not Calc, I suppose.

Okay, a few guesses that I felt had about 8% chance of being right ..... That's right just about what you would have if all you did was randomly assign names to stories.


Cathbad ---- And You Thought Prison Was Bad
Chrispenycate ---- Grime and Purgishment
Dannymcg ---- Reparation
Elvet ---- Selfie Elfie
Ian FourthTwo ---- Punishment Capital
Mosaix --- Astronaut at Dino City Hall
Starbeast ---- Evidence
Victoria Silverwolf ---- Following the Roman Tradition

So, I give myself about a 40% chance of having one right vs. none right.

Okay, the results so far:

M R Gibson - 1
Elckerlyc - 0
Dannymcg - 1
Parson - 1

And leaving you all trailing in the dust:

Elvet - 3 out of 5!! 60% right!

Edit: The poll closes in two days. And thanks to all who've voted, especially those who didn't also enter.
