Zorg Reborn!
« on: August 24, 2005, 05:49:34 am »

During my most recent long absense of internet access, I was working on a system for my machine to enable me to issue commands to it remotely. However, because of the possible danger this would put me in, I created a password system that was specifically made so that only I would stand a chance at bypassing it. In it you (or rather, I) would have to pass a series of "trials". One particular trial was a recreation of the Guide to Alien Etiquette found at the beginning of SC1.

Yesterday, I was very bored at work. Using the aforementioned remote command system, I was able to wrangle the Guide's code out of the password system. This is the result of my efforts. Since it was originally a part of something greater, there is no consequence for getting the questions wrong, nor is there any reward for getting them right. In any case, it might provide an amusing diversion.

So this is the protection system you made? All I remember of it at the beginning if the X's trial  Roll Eyes
Nice work, although I understood nothing from the first trial. Undecided

Hm yes, I remember you had showed me this once. And like that time, I'm clueless about the answer.

However, it is possible to google the answers for the trials I guess ^_^

For this one, perhaps...

While it would be true that some of the answers could be Googled for, there are trials where even the "question" is hidden from view. And of course there are others that simply don't have a Google-able answer.
