Stay Tuned While I Go Do Other Stuff...

Letting one Friday slide by in silence is OK, but two? That's unacceptable. Busy days at work have kept me away, but I just thought I'd pop my head in and provide you with some stuff to entertain you on this fine day. You know, instead of doing work. I should have one of those "real type posts" up this weekend. Maybe even tonight, but don't keep your fingers crossed.

Click Drag Type - A whole bunch of fun little puzzles (Click on the last "Click Drag Type" link in the post to get started.) The write-up on the Jay Is Games website provides the best description:

"Each puzzle is entirely independent of the others and none of them provide any instruction as for what to do. Just as in an adventure-puzzle game, the journey is the reward and figuring out what to do is part of the gratification one receives from playing, but often only half the battle.

As the name implies, you will need to click the mouse, drag the mouse, and type on the keyboard to solve the puzzles contained within. Study each puzzle carefully and observe the behavior of each of its elements as you interact with them. Persevere and you will prevail."

Normally, that description would make me run away in fear of boredom. But these puzzles kept me sufficiently and pleasantly stumped for a goodly amount of time. Note the comments below for help with some of them.

Alright - I've gotten two emails already from people who can't get past the first puzzle. They've gotten the key but are unsure what to do from there. Note the title of the puzzles - Click, Drag, Type - That means you'll have to do all three of those things. Now, look to the left and top of the puzzle window. Might there be something you can drag there? Something small? No? I think you need to look again, Mr. Magoo.

OK GO Treadmill Video: I won tickets to see these guys about a year ago and I didn't go, largely because I was familiar with their debut album and thought it to suck out loud. They've since released another album (the reason why they were touring) which I hear is much better, and more fun. I'm kind of regretting my earlier decision not to attend their show - particularly if they pulled off shit like this.

Click Drag Type is fantastic. If you try it, make sure you keep the sound on as puzzle 2 is impossible unless you can hear it. Only took me 5 minutes to figure that out!
