Starfyre - I wasn't 'excusing my inability to read instructions' - I was returning your insult. You may have intended to make your view clear through the use of sarcasm, but it came across (at least to me) as insulting the attention spans of everyone who misread/didn't see the instructions. Now I se...

I'm looking at the challenge page right now. The fact that not only is the disclaimer in a small grey font against a dark blue background for low visibility, but is also preceded by "Please select the correct answer to each of the following: " to fool anyone who does start reading it into ...

If you take out InterNIC, what do you do when you need to find a public access server (voice analysis) or an internal services server (mainframe bounce)? EDIT: Here's an interesting idea, though - make voice analysis passwords non-standard! 'I am the system administrator. My voice is my passport. Ve...

*blink* All I posted that could be construed as 'answers' was a two word description of a question - I didn't give my answer (which, as I said, may well have been wrong), I didn't hint at an answer, I just described the question. In one word (the other word was 'the'). I could understand it if the t...

I fear that someday I'm gonna wake up to people taking all my stuff away in huge boxes, then claiming I legalised in by installing Windows XP... Seriously, there's some pretty nasty stuff in there. I think there's something that says Microsoft can change the terms of the contract. So when Bill decid...

I'm annoyed. I answered the HASTE BOX CARD CODE BAG in upper case as well... Plus I have NO idea where I lost the rest of the points. I can think of one question I might have got wrong (<Im told this is a spoiler, so choppy choppy, sorry. - Icepick>), and I know I missed the prefix-addition due to u...

I really can't think of anything lower than using both a religion and a lifestyle as insults in one sentence. I'm lost for words. If anyone else reading this thread has the mental ability, please flame prozak for me. And 150+125+22+3 = 300, not 200. I was basing it on the last update I saw with the ...

Meh... About 300 people signed up. So far I notice five victory posts, counting yours and mine. I figure it's going to go like this: 150 people didn't think the IRL section would be this difficult and end up failing the Qualifier. 125 people will eventually get it done, but can't work at midnight fo...

Reminds me of a question from The Spark's untelligence test (no, that's not a typo): "A philosophical question: when you find something you've been missing, why is it always in the last place you look? A. Because I am an unlucky person. B. Because I stop looking once I find it. C. Because it's ...

I'm guessing you're playing Uplink: The Mod, because there's no such mission in vanilla Uplink. I recommend password breaker, or if that doesn't work then do a search for "Aston Wilders" on the Internet (IRL) and see if he's slightly famous. If he is, try keywords associated with him until...

That was the most degrading experience of my life. I continually missed hints that were clearly supposed to be less hints than brick walls forcing me in the right direction. I spent: 5 minutes trying to find the '.file' extension's main use. Yes, there is one, PC-based no less, and I also spent a li...

Hmph. I'll be able to do it, but only at the risk of parental retribution. Oh well, jut let me get those metal business cards and I'll be happy.
