I froze the timed practice

Hello.

I just wanted to let you know that I froze the timed practice by accident. I submitted my answer at the same time that the clock hit zero, and it seems the software does not know what to do. The interface says my answer is correct but it doesn't proceed to the next question.

Interesting... It's probably an 'argument' between the two servers. One saying, "The client timed out!", and the contrary saying, "The client finished in time!" This is a common bug among timing games, though some have found a workaround: auto-assuming, or increase accuracy of timing.

Hope everything works out for you!

P.S. I am a programmer, for those who think I'm a nerd :)

I am programmer too! I thought it was a sync problem between client and server that they hadn't contemplated. Everything worked out… more or less. It was the first question I got right so no damage done :)
