    So, I have seen below many threads a little icon that says nerd-o-meter. I clicked it and a nice game popped up. Winning it made me win a letter within a word. Guesses what it says?


    4 E N B M 1 7 T K J I

    Edit - eternalgladiator found the remaining letters. Now, what is it?

    A clue perhaps?

    Given the address to the image, this seems like an April Fool's prank. Surely, its a Doctor Q doing.

    What I have so far, an 'e'.

    Click on that on the bottom of each thread!


    Edit - Now I have a 'j'

    Edit 2 - I found the number '4' now.

    I'm bad at this specific game as well. But, my curiosity is killing me. This one gave me the letter 'j'.

    Maybe it's an iTunes code promotion code?

    It's not a YouTube video anyway.

    Wow, nice, and fast. I just got the M. Lol. Now, you got me what the hell it is. But I am thinking it has to do something with the pixelation around the images we broke and pixelated MR logo. Perhaps a filter of some kind (either low or high pass filter)

    Has anyone tried iTunes? or Mac store with this yet? Maybe it's the Rick Astley video.

    The iTunes store says "The code entered is not valid."

    A google search yields nothing. Clicking the "Do you mean this?" link gives me results for GTA mods. Interesting.

    Anybody have an old emulator installed ? Try it on that.

    Or..

    It's a serial number.

    There is something called the ENB series which is a graphics injection dll. I'm certain it's unrelated. ENB just happens to be in the text.

    A serial number seems very logical, but, even on the iPhone the serial number is 12 characters long, and the character combination we have has 10 characters.

    ----------

    I was thinking something along that. I even found a playlist with "4 ENB" in it on YouTube.

    Check your work! One of them doesn't seem right, and it's probably Steve Jobs' favorite letter.

    I've got no idea. I've never seen anything like that. I thought maybe it was a brain teaser at first but nothing is jumping out at me right now.

    If it was a serial number, google would have found it most likely as it would've been posted elsewhere.

    The "4 ENB" in the playlist is just because it's for Grand Theft Auto 4 which was one of the first games (if not first) to utilize the ENB series mod.

    I tried typing the characters into the breakout game, to no avail. Also converting it to hex/dec/bin didn't seem to bring up anything noteworthy.
