A real brain-teaser February 20, 2005Posted by eric22222 in General.
Anyone who’s seen Justin’s blog may have noticed the section of links titled “wasting time.” One of the options here is a page of riddles. I happened to be in the forum (looking for answers) when I stumbled upon a thread entitled “The Toughest Riddle on the Internet.” It’s about 80 pages, the goal of each page being to get to the next one. Usually, this requires a login of a username and password. The two pieces of information have to be deduced from a picture and several other sources, including the URL, the page title, even the HTML source code. I’ve made it to page 8. But I think I figured it out. Something about renaming a file extension of a music download from .mus to .jpg to get the username/password. If you wanna give it a try, go ahead. It’s pretty addictive, though.
