Blogs Are No Good For Sneakiness

I know blogs are websites moving through time. I know this.

And posts are more disposable than some old-skool webpage from the mid-90's. Those pages had permanence, baby.

This is an alert to you, dear readers. I am occasionally sneaky.

Like Sweet, Sweet Empty Space.

Looks empty, don't it?

It's not. Press your mouse button down and drag your mouse across the Empty Space post. I like doing stupid stuff like this. Now, I don't know if people didn't figure out my sneaky attempt, or they just found my attempt not particularly sneaky or interesting. I would prefer to think the former -- after all, Manx, the only person who answered my questions, had to be prodded with a sharp stick to notice the text.

So, this is me telling you, all out in the open and stuff, blatant, explicit.


I try to make this blog fun, and having the occasional easter eggs for my readers is just another fun thing (to me, at least).

Wow, it's been months since I did that "Sweet, Sweet Empty Space" post. I reckon I'm probably due for another bout of sneaking. Or maybe I just did one.

Cool, so this post is a puzzle? I'm afraid I don't get it just yet, but maybe I'll return...

BTW, ever try "notpron"? Hell of an online puzzle...

This post, or another.

Haven't tried notpron -- I'll give it a go, but unfortunately I'm not on vacation yet.

Hmm...I did as the post asked, but I'm still in the dark. I guess I'm still too new to this.

Another online puzzle you might like to try if you haven't already is "Funny Farm", which occupied me for several months (literally). It's infuriating.

bsuwg, I gave it a go, but when a puzzle requires more than four steps I start getting the vapors.

the ir, I'll try out Funny Farm, provided it doesn't give me the vapors.
