    Is that a NotPron clue?

    It's like a massive and very challenging browser based riddle. There are a bunch of them, and NotPron is one of the more notable ones. Basically, you start at the clue that says 1 and try to figure out how to get to 2, 3, 4, and so on. The answer could be as simple as clicking on a door in a picture to advance or as complicated as scouring the source code of the page or playing with your audio settings and speeding up or slowing down the music on a clue to hear it saying something (or playing it backwards). Someone I was friends with at the time and I got pretty far into it at one point quite a few years back. If I recall, the negative number ones were supposed to be the obscenely difficult ones. We never got anywhere near that far.

    If anyone's interested in playing it after the description, keep in mind that there is some adult content involved, as it's purposely designed to have a kind of sketchy/uneasy feel to it. Also, if you're not that comfortable with the computer, it's not even worth trying. I consider myself pretty decent with computers and I didn't get all that far in the grand scheme of things, and if it wasn't for the use of spoilers on a handful that we were really stuck on we wouldn't have gotten even that far.

    I think it has been a valiant effort. I, for one, would think no less of you if you gave up here. After all, the countdown you are on (really a count past...or something) has no endpoint, only a beginning point. Had you really planned on a lifetime of negative numbers?

    That did occur to me. I've ao at least another trick or two available, then I probably run out.

    Maybe Steve is living Groundhog Day, but got the date wrong.

    444 until I'm off the payroll. Should be out of the office about 25 days earlier than that though.

    Well, if the world ends you'll get to retire early, and so will everyone else. Think of it that way. Of course, if Steve has his way, you'll just keep re-living 12/21/11 over and over for the rest of time.

    Please tell me you're not going to ad another countdown to the thread. Especially since someone here is unemployed and would actually love to have a job.

    No additional countdown. When mine is over, it's over.
