Weekly Report No 222, CW 4

From Monday, 24.01.2005 to Sunday, 30.01.2005
At least one of the riddles was a bit more difficult.... I admit: it was a small shock for me to learn how fast the replys to the first riddle came in - maybe we just built it a bit too close to reality... ;-). In this context it is remarkable how many people sent their reply by eMail instead of using the forum where we regularly discuss the actual weekly report... Apart from the latest fotos about the scandinavian contruction site there finally is again an upload gallery for visitor fotos. Users may post fotos of the layout here to share them with the public. Interestingly enough, the security feature, I built in to remove fotos not belonging here, is also used to remove fotos of very poor quality. Not really intended by the author but may be not such a bad idea at all?

It is - of course - a cow-shit lottery.
