Puzzlestorm! (07 Feb 2004 at 19:57)
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. ;)
