Now I'm stuck on #12 though.
I know the phone is in different positions in the two pics, but I can't figure out the password/username from that.


What do you call a phone that moves?

More hints and spoilers:
13: Devilishly hard one... but who's Lucy, and where does she live if not in the sky?
14: déjà vu
15: Look in the source, then look at the keyboard.
16: What a sick code. The number is the position in the username for that screen. # means invert it first (a->z, b->y...). Ok, to hell with that. letit luvrat
17. The object in the pic is the new URL. But try notpron.htm first.
18. Read source. Note filename of pic. Play around with it to find about 4 pron pics and a music clue. Notes playing in background are C, A, G, and E.
19. There's hidden text in the pic in a simple code.
20. See any wingdings?
21. This one is too good to spoil...
22. Look at the pic and don't think too hard.

I'm stuck on 23.}

2. Just mess with it.
3. In the URL: false -> true.
4. Look at the carvings on the side of the dresser.
5. Read the URL.
6. Hidden text in ASCII code.
7. In the URL: Name it -> raider.
8. pitch down.
9. It's hidden in the source code.


There, now you guys can help me with #10.

But does anyone in their right mind care? Both the candidates are ridiculous. Hopefully in four more years we will actually have a choice between two candidates who actually have good policies. I could not sit through another two hours of other debate between them.

For real. Coke-addled imperialist or bleeding-heart liberal. God, I love politics. Vote Badnarik!

Anyone know the slang derogatory term for a Ukrainian? I'm.. uh.. suddenly curious. Not something you think you'll ever need, then this.

So my question is the following: how do you know anything about events immediately preceding -- and in the immediate vicinity of -- an explosion big enough to set the neighboring towns on fire? I would expect there to be some sort of "event horizon" involved here. Did they radio their supervisor to alert him to the fact that they were talking a smoke break? Remotely monitored security cameras? It boggles the mind.

Speaking of cameras, what's that falcon thing about? Is it only loading halfway? I just see an indiscernable blob in a bare room.

I agree with the previous analysis about fill-rate no longer being the bottleneck, but whatever the bottleneck is nowadays should see a similar boost with two parallel vid cards over just one.

There isn't much of a bottleneck anymore. The top cards play the top games at 60 FPS, at 1600x1200, with anti-aliasing and everything. Granted, developers will put it to use before long, but everything's pretty rosy on the graphics side right now. The real hardware shortcomings games run into are back in the CPU, trying to do good AI and physics.

The big problem I have with this thing isn't the technology of the idea itself, it's the company. Alienware puts components together to make computers; they don't make components. It's kinda like if O'Reilly's (or whatever auto parts store) decided there was a market for something better than Ferrarris, so they're gonna make something to fill that niche. The market doesn't exist, but it doesn't matter, because even if it did you wouldn't be the one to take a crack at it.

It's definitely one big fookin' clusterfuck, and the worst part is that it didn't have to be.

For real. What the hell happened here? I remember the 9-11 thing, then we invaded Iraq because that's where the 9-11 terrorists were. Then my buddy said, "Hey, you know, we ought to just hit Iraq too while we're over there." And I said, "Haha." But then we did it! And there's the off-again-on-again shit about WMD's, which I never really payed attention to anyway. And now we're supposed to be installing democracy over there, and it's not working. Why the fuck didn't they ask me in the first place? I could have told them that you can't just change another people's ideology, they have to change it themselves. So obviously it's doomed, and everybody's saying we need to get out, but everybody knows we WON'T, at least before November. And when my brother-in-law gets sent back over there pretty soon for the SECOND time he's prolly gonna drive over a mine and make my sweet little sister a widow. Nice work, Commander in Chief.

Speaking of sitcoms, however, did anyone realize that Drew Carey will go off the air with no fanfare this summer (not that you could find it the last couple years anyways...). That show had some funny schtick sometimes.

Now there's one that went from great to terrible. I think it was around the point where they stopped doing a story in each show and started just screwing around in front of the camera.

Developer says: "This is a beta, it is not representitive of the final product and may contain bugs"

Developer means: "This is an alpha, it IS representative of the final product but has lots of bugs and missing features."

Incredible. In the middle of an MMORPG beta, they find the time to patch a game that's, what, like 500 years old? Now THAT'S support.

Why are you so upset about how much the materials cost? You're not paying for a lump of silicon, you're paying for the R&D. If they put in extra R&D that made all their cards faster, then made you pay more to unlock the full potential, that's just good business.

Man, I'd like to experience the unbridled fury of Animala. Rawrrr.

I know, I have weird taste sometimes.

Btw, they're not kidding about that Texas flu. Got me for 6 full days and the wife for 5. I was like a DEAD MAN, I tell you.

Ellzey said Wal-Mart officials called later Friday to ask about her sister, and the store apologized and offered to put a DVD player on hold for her.

Oh GLORIOUS. She's beaten to a pulp, but thank god, she WILL be able to get that crappy $29 DVD player across which her mangled body was found slumped. wtf.

so this party-girl-auction-thing is also coming to the US; after 5 girls "won" >25.000 Euros that thing is growing here (in Germany) rapidly...

I wasn't aware that this was a "thing." So, is it prostitution or not? Her auction text basically says, "We'll go have a good time, but NO SEX! (wink wink)"

It's really irritating how he writes this long article saying how mysterious it is, there are no clues, etc. He even drags out various professionals to look at the tile and speculate about it. Then right at the end he happens to mention this Morasco guy who is obviously CLOSELY linked to the phenomenom. His investigation of that lead consists of one short phone call. WTF?!?

Except for a couple of shining examples (like scud base-raping), the game IS pretty well balanced. Maybe it's not how you expect it should be, or how it is in real life, but it's fun. Tanks, choppers, fighters, almost EVERYTHING is deadly in capable hands and in the right situation, but can be taken down easily by a determined enemy. That's balance.

Psssh... I loved Resident Evil. I've seen it several times, and I'd love to see its style brought to the AvP combo franchise.

Reverse the roles and put a white guy writing English insults on Asians who can't read it and people would be screaming bloody murder.

Oh please... that would be just as funny. Anyway, there's no "inherent racism" here. We're not making fun of the Japanese, we're making fun of Americans who don't treasure their own culture as much as one they don't even understand.

In terms of volume of plastic, it's less than the plastic packaging for many common products. Which isn't to say it's a good thing, only that it's no more waste than we already generate every day.

It WOULD be more trash. Maybe not a large amount relative to what we already produce, but it would be more. But who cares? Netflix is taking over the movie rental biz anyway.

Is that tattoo story for real or not? If it is, I'd like to shake the guy's hand.

Two years is awhile, but it depends on how much they pack into this thing. There are expansion packs that just add a couple of new levels, and there are expansion packs that feel like sequels.

I had a fun time with DS. I played through the singleplayer, tested the multiplayer and found it lacking, and deleted the game. Yet for a week, it was fun, and you can't ask for much more than that very often and get it.
