I'm confused. The stills page states 77 days until it ends. But when I log in,
it says it ends on February 28? So, which is it?

It is April and not February. Only consider the floating clock as that 
is the real time for the challenge. Due to the fact that we have still 
not been able to upgrade the site, we still have to cope with the 
discrepancy. Best is to wait till beginning of March to upload your 
image(s) for the Star Challenge otherwise you might need to upload twice 
like in the preceding challenges. Not a big deal but irritating, I know. 
Take patience, changes will come through in the end ;-)

No (although it may come from there through the author, who knows). It 
is an expression much used by the people on the continent Essos (across 
from Westeros) in 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George Martin. A huge 
story spread over five huge volumes to date, with two more to be 
published in future. I am almost finishing the fifth volume (A Dance 
with Dragons) and, although I am rather critical about fantasy in 
general, I think this is a major read. The plot is highly elaborate, 
inventive, and surprising; the characters' psychology is mostly sound 
and necessarily complex; the locations are original and believable.

Probably better known by its HBO series name "Game of Thrones". However, 
I always prefer the books over the film, although I have not seen them 
in this case and they are reputedly well made.
