| We placed #4 by points in Puzzlestorm 2004. There were some kinda screwed up puzzles that we tore our hair out over for a while ("Scarborough Fair" by Paul Simon??? "ya rule"?) and some dumb mistakes that cost us points ("islbnd"?), but we had a great time as usual. There were some real exciting moments (Egypt!), and just like last year we tied for the most first solutions of any team.|
It would really suck not to know how to program. A lot of good SML was written. Next year, we will have even more software...
|By the way, I don't feel cheated at all by our score this year, as opposed to last. Congrats to the teams that beat us!|
|msimpact.net appears to be hosted from msimpact.res.cmu.edu. I bet you can totally get the kid who registered it in deep shit for violating the TOS regarding commercial shit...
P.S. I found this website filled with WMAs (which I could tell you about privately but cannot disclose for obvious reasons) and it includes "Glad Girl" which I find very catchy. Wonder if there's any chance Bobby P. will be gracing this year's Carnival in lieu of a certain band which might be giant, but not as musically impressive.
|God damn, wasn't TMBG here last year? GBV would be great, I even like their new album for a change.
Anyway, looks like msimpact.net resolves to some off-site host that then links back to msimpact.res. That's what I do, too. Man, I hate that fucken rule.
|I was under the impression they do automated scanning of the DNS tables for these violations anyways.|
|They scan the entirety of DNS? It doesn't sound possible...
When they "caught" me it was just someone reporting it.
|Well, maybe back in '97 before the dot com boom it was possible. ;)|
