So I was just chatting with my brother and stuff, and we came up with this great idea for a game. The idea is, you're trying to get from one major web site to another, using only the mouse. That means, you can only click on links- you aren't ever allowed to touch the keyboard. So you need to find ways that one site connects to another.

So, i'll give you two sites, and you need to get from one to the other. Then, you message me on the board (that's message on the board, yeah) with the list of links you followed. The person with the shortest trail wins!

So, because I can't be arsed to do any real work on this, i'll use the one I did first:

apple.com to slashdot.org.

Remember. Start at apple, make your way to slashdot. Depending on the turnout, i'll post the entries sometime. Maybe tomorrow, maybe in a couple days. Depends. Have fun!

I'd rather try to do it just using alt, the numberpad and the mouse, if that's OK with you.

I can't imagine that is ok with him, Mas Tnega, as it totally breaks the rules of his game. Try to pay attention.

'Fraid I clarified that. Sorry! :)


Oh, by the way, I have received my first entry (which didn't beat mine, so I know it can be beaten). It can be done, folks! Keep trying! :)

[EDIT]

Oh, yeah. I'm pondering whether to give time recognition- i.e., the first person to enter gets recognized as the first for being first, even if the trail is longer than the winning entry. The shortest trail will still win, but I'll post the entrants here. What to you think?

If i decide to, I'll post the entrants I'll have received at that time in the order I received them.

Also, do you think I should post the trail length with it or should I leave that to the end? And at the end, should I do the full disclosure thing, with everyone who tried every trail?

[/EDIT]

oh, and if u want a good way to cheat, try using the right mouse button to copy and paste individual letters from apple.com into the address bar to spell slashdot.org, hehe.
