Serious Geek Stuff I Might Never Have Known

buzzfeed_sloths_internet_easter_eggsSometimes, you just have to click, to see what happens. Don’t do this, if they say it’s FREE! Malware is everywhere… But, sometimes, something is written just right. And, you cannot believe it, so you have to try it.

So it goes with Konami Code. Fully skeptical, I went ahead with instructions from this post on Hootsuite. And, would you believe? If you go to Buzzfeed, as they suggest and “type in the Konami code,” as instructed, you really do land on another page. Holy Good Friday and Easter weekend, Batman!

That little PacMan game at the bottom of my Google maps was kind of an annoyance. I never actually thought about Easter Eggs, until I stumbled upon the Hootsuite article, led there by my exploration of Digg. Yes, I’ve been wandering a bit today. Inspired by a Tweet from Melissa Galt, I dropped into Digg, to see what was cooking, there. So, now you have the full backtrack. As Bernie Mac used to say; “Let’s move on.”

A search for Konami Code leads to konamicodesites.com (where you better have learned the code before you arrive.) You’ll have to type in the code when you get there. “Perform the Konami Code to access this website”, is all you’ll see on the page, until you do! Read the right side of the page. I don’t have an iPhone for testing, so please get back to me with details on that.

The list of sites you can visit there is vast, so consider that fact before you go. Translation, you’ll need some free time, to really enjoy sites like these: http://www.cornify.com/ and http://www.paulirish.com/

That’s all the time I have.
