    Sitepoint Easter Egg Hunt 2011 - LAST DAY!!

    Last day, peoples!

    We've hidden eighteen easter eggs (see this thread) across Sitepoint forums. Sixteen are in prominent (aka. stickied) threads, and two are in special places.

    Each of the eggs have a letter on them.

    Use the hints to find all the eggs.

    Send us the URLs where you found them, along with the unscrambled phrase spelled out by the letters, to ScallioXTX (send via PM) to win Sitepoint T-shirts, PDF books, I love HTML mugs, and more. See this thread for the proper list of prizes.

    We had five hampers in all, and only one went. ahem...





    Here is a recap of the hints to the eggs in the stickied threads;


    This egg is handwritten and modern, ironic but humanist, geometric yet amorphous... WTF!
    And no, that F is not the word you're thinking of!
    ;)

    Yes, I really do have a son named "; DROP TABLE Students."

    (.*) <-- it's a dklynn reference

    Opt in.

    Does this old CRT make me look fat? How wide is too wide? To scroll, or not to scroll, that is the question. Page 2.

    You can find them in any language, and they help you mind your website!

    Who's afraid of the big, bad base?

    What do you see?
    01110000011000010110011101100101001000000011001000110111
    <-- "what is it" ?!

    <? ms ?> <-- PHP on Micro-what?

    Share with others? Or maybe completely dedicated? What's right for me? <-- "shared"? "dedicated"? what does that remind me of?

    Dynamic assistance on what you just read. Page 2. <-- why is "dynamic" in bold? hmm...

    Put your _________ on the dotted line. But you have to wait 90 days...

    What makes for a good article?

    Farewell GC! (Welcome GD ;) ) <-- these changes! I can't keep up!

    Where did you learn the rules of this hunt?

    Good going Syam.

    I just posted three new hints. Maybe your eggs are among them?

    three new hints:

    Aleksejs.
    <-- remember to keep your web app safe!

    Developing on the go! In a train, not a plane(!), in a cafe, an egg you'll gain. <-- why not a plane? what device cannot work on planes?

    All the answers to sell yourself. But don't send spam!
