FortKnox's Journal: FotoKon 3: Last Guesses 112

Journal by FortKnox
OK, as per request, lets get all your guesses in now and I'll post the answers tomorrow night or wednesday morning...

So, post your guesses including the 'gimmies.' People can drop hints as AC to help them out.

And if you can't figure out who I am you are bad on two levels:
1.) Because my face has been posted many-a-times.
2.) Because of another reason I'll tell on Wednesday.
This discussion has been archived. No new comments can be posted.

    • Dude, I told you not to post that here. I don't know want people to know that brew-masters.com is really unread.org. At least not until it's time.

      That's it, I'm going to have to foe you know.

      Oh crap, I shoulda posted this AC.
  • I'll have to post them tonight.
  • It takes you 3 months to post the pictures and we get 5 days to figger out the answers, eh?
    Okay, sure.
    (No, I'm not bitter that I can't guess anyone.)

    • Me? #4? I honestly have no idea to that which you are referencing? ;-)

      Oh, and I think that you are off by one on both 17 and 18. Look at the photos one more time.

      • Well... call it intuition. Damn, women only dig me when I'm taken. It's always the same thing :-(

        Did you know that "Nee" in dutch means "No". So, your nick always reads to me as "No No 3"... Kind of like "A big no-no".

        Thanks for pointing out the screwup. Indeed... Correction to my list:

        • Well, I'm sorry you are taken. Because you are indeed very cute! But I guess that makes the "no no" thing rather appropo! ;-)

          I didn't realize that "nee" in Dutch meant "no." Nee is actually the last part of my name - Renee. So, some of my friends jokingly call me "neenee."

          I should have waited to friend you until after the contest, that way I could have remained anonymous for a few more days. :-)

          • Well, I'm sorry you are taken. Because you are indeed very cute! But I guess that makes the "no no" thing rather appropo!

            Well, thank you... I just keep *blushing* and I cite SmilingGirl when I told her about #4: "Nah, nah, nah... He's mine, he's mine... you can't have him..." Or something along these lines....
            I added the "No no" thing just because it was apropos.

            last part of my name - Renee

            Ooooh... Renee Zellweger is on slashdot! Whoohoo ;-))

    • I'm kinda stunned you haven't picked me out. It is the third photo contest and you (and I) were in the previous three.
      • I have a very very bad memory for faces. Which kinda sucks as a teacher, I can assure you. See, there are many *familiar* faces in there, which I know I have seen, but I just can't stick a nick on them.

        I also never stored the pics of previous photocontests for easy comparision. Dumb, and every year I tell to myself that I'll do it... but I never do. This doubled with lack of time for research (as I had in the last two contests) doesn't help much with my guessing. My best guess is #9... but really...

      Oh, dear God no... ;-)

    • The ASCII/hex comment gave it to me immediately, then I went and found the rest of the clues for fun (kinda like a "Where's Waldo" game).

      In the same vein:

      * My favourite colour is grey
      * "Beer" is close to me, too
      * I have two choices of hairstyle: bald or "too lazy to shave my head recently so I have a little fuzz". I currently opted for #2.
      * My girlfriend hides behind me in pictures.
      * I don't have kids, but I am waiting in line to play a kid's game at my compny picnic while wearing
      • For some reason, I thought that people were only going to read the capitalized hint. Glad you liked the ASCII hint, but that came naturally to me... After all, everyone knows space in hex. (At least on slashdot they should... back in the day we knew ASCII by heart... yay! /ME oldskool geek)

        I went and found the rest of the clues for fun (kinda like a "Where's Waldo" game).

        Hope you had fun. I'm going to try to find out who you are :-) I don't know "Where's Waldo"... A huge gap in my education it se

        • Yeah dude, you're just giving it away there.

          However, I didn't quite understand your clue at first, and I was thinking 32 doesn't fit your clues at all... I had autoconverted back to decimal.
          • Of course I'm giving it away. I've been here for all contests. I should be an old "recognisable" as Some Woman is (of course she's got the advantage of being a woman)

            Your reaction (of converting to 32) just means you didn't use a hex editor as I did back in my youthful years of hacking. :-)

        • Ohhh.. tricky! base 14... Wait, a second: C with a = through it? That's called the Euro () and is kinda an important currency these days. I only wasn't aware that it was in the original ASCII table. (Exactly because it isn't)

          Ahh, but in my Microsoft Ascii Table for Excel (use the help in the VBA editor) it does exist :)

          And yes, that's the symbol it gives me. (the Euro)

          I don't know "Where's Waldo"... A huge gap in my education it seems.

          It's a series of children's books from the early 90's where a ma
          • Ahh, but in my Microsoft Ascii Table for Excel (use the help in the VBA editor) it does exist :)

            I don't have a PC handy. I'm on my iBook. The real ASCII table doesn't have an euro sign, whatever Microsoft may say. I'm sorry, but they are *wrong*.

            Thanks on the "Where is Waldo" explanation.

    • I use an IBM Model M (hint for the trained Nerd only)

      The IBM Model M rules!

      Sadly most don't understand why you want to use the 'loud' 'non-ergonomic' keyboard.

      Give me real mechanical keyswitches any day over sucky membrane keyboards.
      • "Buckle" switches!

        Where are the USB Model M's?

        • Bah.... it's not as if most motherboards don't come with a PS/2 connector. Besides, I'm sure you can get a convertor for that.

          Keyboards these days suck. You get flimsy plastic a ton of keys that nobody uses, the stupid Fx key that disables the real function keys. They are toys.

          My personal opinion is that I should be able to kill someone by hitting my keyboard on his head. With modern keyboards you just can't do that.

          • Yeah - even the post-IBM Model M's I've seen don't have a metal base-plate, anymore...
            • Sure... I have one of those. ;-) It's still sturdy: you just need to hit harder. Blood stains easily go off too :-D
            • I'm not sure when the switch was.

              My model M's all have the metal baseplate.

              At least someone cares enough to still make buckling spring keyboards.

              Not that it is hard to find the real thing. IBM made millions of Model M keyboards and many pre-1999 Dell keyboards are Model M's with a Dell logo.

              There are also some other mechanical keyswitch keyboards out there. While Alps or Cherry keyswitches aren't quite as nice as the buckling spring they are much better than any of the membrane crap out there. (though f
        • Some of the Model M web pages have recomendations on PS2 to USB converters.

          Apparently there are a number of Mac users who like to use Model M keyboards instead of Apple or whatever.

  • Here are my absolutely pathetic guesses. Let me explain:

    1. While I was around for the first two contests, I wasn't really paying attention since I didn't participate.
    2. I know none of you in real life, like some of you guys do.
    3. I usually don't pay attention to the "personal" journal entries where you talk about how much Captain Crunch you ate in the morning or which nostril is plugged.
    4. So, I'm mostly going on a total gut feeling of who I would imaging when thinking about your posts. I generally ignored the

    • Impressive, you found the one picture of me that Google knows about, and were able to match that with the different picture for this contest, eh?

      There are actually a number of additional pictures, but they aren't matched with my name. I can be seen in the background of any number of pictures of Hacker Jeopardy at Defcon. However, the subject of the pictures is the strippers, so they're not labelled "Ryan Russell... oh yeah, and some boobies."
      • Impressive, you found the one picture of me that Google knows about, and were able to match that with the different picture for this contest, eh?

        Well I started by trying to find a publisher's page for your book -- they quite often have an author bio and picture. But that proved fruitless, so I thought I'd just try a general google image search, and there you were...

    • 65: DexterPexter

    17 - nizo [The photo hint and a post on the source of your nick tied it together. If I'm wrong, it's cause I'm a bad birder.]
    27 - Ethelred Unraed [I figure this is what he thinks he looks like. If it's not him, it should be.]

    I'm not counting Sol, 'cause I'd seen her pic before. Likewise, rdewald's extra pics were a dead giveaway, so I'm not going to claim him.

    It's late, I filled in the last few blanks randomly and... I have too many names left over. Maybe I just forgot the cross some out or maybe I have dupes.

    Anyway, there are a large number that I'm pretty confident about. There were actually alot of clues available and I think that, given a day or two to work on it (with nothing else to do), one could probably score about 95%. Anyway, here are my guesses

        Yours wasn't so hard with the clues you gave.
        • I tried to be fairly obtuse about it, since it was supposed to be some sort of contest or something. I wonder why so many people guessed I was tet [slashdot.org]. Must be the "Hair length: long" bit in his profile.
