    Hahaha, yesterday's was one of the best. Except for the initial clue at first made me think "oh, there must be a hidden RAR archive in the JPG", so I spend a half an hour trying different stenography tricks on it [​IMG]. But after you added 'forum' to the filename, I got it.

    Also the Glossary part confused me for awhile, as when I googled for the GBAtemp glossary, the wiki came up, and I assumed that was where I needed to be. Alas, the Wiki happened to be down, so I just kept waiting for it to be fixed, until I found the forum Glossary.

    That's weird. I got stuck at the rules page since I got to it and tried to use Ctrl+F to find the word "answer" but it didn't find anything. Strange since the word "answer" is actually there in the page in plain text. Did they do something clever to the page so you can't find it?

    This competition was really fun, [​IMG] I was stuck on the tempcast? It only shows up the first in Opera [​IMG] But after I used firefox, I finally got the #12.
