If you're having problems with actually getting the download button to show, I think you have to leave it for a minute before the download button will appear. I left the tab open as I was scouring the forums for a solution and when I tabbed back, the download button was showing.

Or if your problem is with getting the site to run, Google Chrome worked very well for me. It's still in development but you can get it from http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/eu … tml?dl=mac

Looking at my countdown, in my time zone, impact Will be at 5:00 PM on the 5th.

What do your countdown clocks say?

Don't anthropomorphize computers. They HATE that.

No, this shouldn't start until December! Not because I don't looove MH, but because I'm in an exchange program in The Philippines, and have to connect to the internet with mobile broadband (and get EDGE if I'm lucky, 3G once every 20th day or so...)... I hope it won't be over before I get back home... (In the middle of december...)

Here's one to you...Mr. FastMacHeistCodeBreakerExplainer!

While everyone else drowns in a teacup of mistakes...you see through the screen of you American-branded, Chinese-manufactured expensive fruitputer, you see the depths and complexities, you see patterns...yousee, you see, I have a question, can you explain again that blinky thingamjig...

So crack another Bud open, crack another code, crack another riddle, Mr.FastMacHeistCodeBreakerExplainer! Because while everybody else sleeps comfortably, or procreates in the heat of the night, or enjoys a movie and eats popcorn...you get crackin'!

That's only after the first person clicked the "tweet for treat" button after finding it out without any help.

I scrolled from 0,0 to 200,200... didn't think I had to enter the exact cords.  If you scroll, it still sees everything - yet when I was in and around the area, I didn't see the spinning rock.

Do you suppose the asteroid signifies the big bundle and each micro-asteroid around it signifies a puzzle we have to solve?

Speaking of work, being a weekend warrior on MH for the last few missions made me feel like a dunce. If I want to do better I guess my sleep time will be reduced for this one.

You could just sleep, and dream of MH (like yours truly)!
