    I've sent out account info to everyone on the list for wiki access. Let me know if you have any problems.

    Oh, and I made a new logo and banner, despite what I said above. If you don't like them, come up with something better.

    I think they look fine. Thanks for taking the time to make the wiki.

    Btw, I found this part amusing.
    If that doesn't help,

    * you may be able to get to the page you want through your browser's history
    * you can add "&action=purge" (no quotes) to the end of the URL you are at to purge the cache
    * you can curse Molnar repeatedly

    I had a blast trying to do this on my own last year, but would love to be part of a team this year if there is still any room! If nothing else I can help on the cryptic crossword clues they always seem to have.

    The team is registered. I used the names of the people who have PM me so far, but there is still room for 3 more people in the MUMs site. Whether your name is in the list or not, you should be able to see the new forum that cthree created and sluggy sent a PM about. If you haven't received a PM from sluggy say it, so you can be added to the users of the new forum.

    Only two more days to go! Remember MUMs starts Monday in Melbourne, Sunday in the States.

    Does anyone else get a pop-up so to speak that says "steak" when they run their cursor over any part of the entire picture? Says the flag is "steak" and the fork is "steak" etc.

    Prob nothing of signifigance tho.

    Yes, various items in that picture do produce the word "steak". I wonder what is at stake? Maybe it's meant to stimulate the appetite.

    That's a tooltip popup. You should see one if the web designer gave the image a title. You must be using IE, which also shows a tooltip if an alternate name is given to the image. The alternate name is for browsers that don't display images, so you get an idea of what was supposed to be there. In this case the image is steak.png with an alternate name of "steak," so anywhere you hover the cursor over the image will give you a "steak" popup.
