#1 − Update: 13 years later

13 years later and the Lud is still kicking! It’s still right where we left it, but now hosted at another site. The clues and rules are still the same. Kath and I just tried one for the first time in a long time and managed 100% on the first try. This is not because it’s gotten easier, but because we’ve gotten so much better. Most of the puzzle was deceptively easy, but we had to make an educated guess on the final letter g where “kind of palm” (“sago”) and “mulled wine” (“negus”) crossed.

“Negus”? Really?

And don’t speek but shout − specially to your boss. Pre- and postfix everything with “Sir”. That’s a basic too :-)

Just looking through more back issues of the Wave and I found Keeping the Skies Stupid, an article about post 9-11 airline security:

“On September 11th, the terrorists took over the plane with box cutters. This is never going to work again. The next person who tries to take 200 hostages with anything less than a bazooka is going to end up stuffed in an airplane toilet with the American spirit’s boot buried in his ass. Airports are openly mocking us when they take away our combs, nail files or boomerangs. Here’s a good way to test the deadliness of an item: Imagine you’re holding it and a gorilla bursts into the room. Now decide whether to hold on to it or fight with your bare hands. If you have to think about it, it’s not deadly. Instead of taking away toiletries from innocent travelers, we ought to take every citizen in groups of 200 into gymnasiums. Then, while they’re trying to figure out what’s going on, we have a guy come in and try to take them all hostage with a fork. If they let him, those 200 people are no longer allowed to fly on planes.”

Yay! I got past level 4. Then, the bonus round that comes after that launches about 30 kids at you. I didn’t get very far.

Digging through my email, I found a Flash desktop/operating system metaphor for navigating EgoMedia’s site.

Another Flash toy I just found from a long time ago is a Martial Arts Movie with excellent stick-figure animation.
