Microsoft's Internet Explorer team sent a congratulatory cake to the Firefox team on the occasion of the launch of Firefox 2.
Update: Ivan sez, ""but did they include the recipe?!""
Fred sez, "The IE-team cake looked suspicious, what with the irregular white and
black marks. The conspiracy theorist in me made me think about Morse
code. I saw in the comments on the original blog that some people had
looked at it and that there is no obvious morse code there. I
couldn't be bothered to write a perl script to parse it depending on
the starting place and direction of the message (cw or ccw), but it
sure looks like some kind of message. I see, starting top left going
cw, 'S E S / A T / (D:N:B) (U:V:A) / T N' I assume that someone else
could properly decode this, so I suggest sending this as a challenge
to all the would-be cryptographers and lovers of codes. What message
has the IE-team hidden in the icing on the Firefox cake?"

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
