220.127.116.11 10:18, 1 April 2013 (UTC) I put in "caltech.edu" and hashed a lot of words, and "Twilight Sparkle is best pony." was the best result I managed, only off by 496 bits.
All I see is a blank white 780x969 image. Nothing appears when I hover over stuff. 18.104.22.168 09:04, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
- Sometimes it does that. It takes a while to generate, and it doesn't always render correctly. Try updating your browser or refreshing. Davidy²²[talk] 09:06, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
The person who provided the shopped image either isn't using a modern browser or is using IE. The font is supposed to be "xkcd-Regular", which I assume is a font that gets downloaded from XKCD's server. Loading the same page in IE 9 gave me that Times New Roman-esque font instead (Chrome, Firefox, and Opera use the special font, although it's rendered a little fuzzy in Firefox). 22.214.171.124 09:25, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
- I think it matches the company in the first panel? (Currently CAREERS@XLINX INC for me.) --126.96.36.199 10:53, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
The page where the company name is supposed to be fetched from is "Sith" now, but I checked and the company is not there. I think this will take some time to decipher ... -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:12, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
- .... uh, remember few pages ago where we JOKED about being used as distributted computer? Now we ARE used to crack the provided hash ... -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:15, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
- It's April 1st. Maybe the idea that the company is sourced from a Wikipedia page is not true. That would explain the link to the Wikipedia fund raising page as an apology for the fact that there will be many XKCD readers vandalising the Sith page Jeremyp (talk) 11:38, 1 April 2013 (UTC).
Ignorant question: What is this hash finding competition? Was it announced somewhere? 188.8.131.52 11:56, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
The sad thing is that people are probably only donating to a good cause to see the dog-drawing get bigger. 184.108.40.206 14:11, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
