So my main computer where I do all of my Fark stuff finally decided that it was time to go. The battery had stopped responding, and when a fan died, it actually ruined the fan hookup on the motherboard so I spent $9 on a new fan that wouldn't work.. But I lucked out and got a fantastic deal on an almost-new machine, and then had a fun time with the whole 600+ GB data transfer thing, and then trying to remember all of my passwords for various websites. In the process, I learned that Chrome actually has a plain-text CSV export and import function which I cannot believe no one has exploited yet. One might think they would encrypt this the same way they encrypt your saved passwords, but I think they're looking at usability and functionality more than anything. Someone might get confused at having to enter a password to import more passwords.

Anyways, last week's winners and easiest/hardest are in the NotNewsLetter in your email inbox, or you can check out the comments thread where you can also find out more about Drew's new book (shameless plug, boss!).

If the hard quiz is a little too difficult, be sure to check out the Easy Quiz.

Good luck, and please reply to this comment if you have any issues with the quiz.

Random clicking got me a better score than actually trying. I'm going with that from now on.

Looks like I did better on the easy quiz than the hard quiz for a change. Let's see how long that second place score lasts until it's obliterated from the top 10.

Yeah, I don't think 782 will hold up very well.

At least it's "public" and not "pubic", though pubic displays in public are generally frowned upon by the police.

Depends on the police, I guess.

This is from San Francisco International Airport's new outdoor observation deck:

...so I guess the TSA is cool with it.

8 out of 11 correct, total points = 724
Total time elapsed:
1 minute (109 seconds)

Not too shabby, just outside the top ten at the moment.

I turned on an old computer, idle a year and a half, a couple weeks ago. The stress of making a backup of the internal disk killed the internal disk. I turned on an old Mac Mini, idle a year and a half, yesterday and it crashes every few hours.

Anybody want me to try to turn on your ex?
