A Mystery

On a whim I decided a few moments ago to randomly type in a web address and see where it took me. I started with "" I didn't know what I would find. I thought, it could be something wonderful. Maybe someone made a sort of playground on the internet and named it "Boring" so only the odd occasional wanderer like myself would come and visit.

But that's not what happened:

That's the home of Boring Business Systems. So, since that's probably someone's last name I won't make fun of it. Because, as my boss Keith says, "People with names like ours should not make fun of the names of others." Excellent advice, Mr. Bubalo.

Buuuuut, excited by the possibilities of typing in something strange and finding a wonderful new something, I decided to try again. So I went to and I discovered something mysterious.

There was a note.

And it said:

What are you doing?

There's noting to see here.

Your connection has been logged.

Notice the grey, almost faded font. Also notice the word "nothing" has been misspelled... as if to say that there actually IS something to see here. And then the threat that my connection has been logged.

I think that there is more to explore here. I've never been great at these internet games. I did click around on the page trying to see if there was a hidden link but I couldn't find one. Somebody smart go figure it out and then give me all the credit. GET TO WORK, MINIONS!

Also, please make up some domain names, try them out and let me know if you come across any interesting ones in your internet spelunking.


  1. Matt, I did a whois query, and it comes up with pretty weird info.

    It was created in 1994. It's connected to a number, (513) 618-1001, which if you call it, sounds like a modem, and an address, 1604 Race St., which looks like a post office in Cincinnati, and email address,
    which is mostly in Russian (maybe Emily could help translate), and a registrant name, Internic ( babysitter.

    I'm sure this won't help at all, other than to spur your curiosity even further. Let me know if you find anything!

    Here's the Whois profile for Whois tells you who owns the website address and what it's IP address actually is.

    The registrant information is traced to Internic Babysitter which shares the same address as (A Worldwide Legion of Power Gamers). Apparently is used as a mail server.

    I doubt there's any mystery at all.

  3. I looked at the source code. Other than the fact that the person who made it sucks at web development, there doesn't look to be anything there.

  4. LAME is a mp3 encoder ... sorry to say it's not a game, just a stub page by a bad speller

  5. Wow you has minions...

  6. you funny. thanks for the adding some more smiles in my day. too bad your minions couldn't find an internet Indiana Jones adventure of some sort. well, i've got noting left to say.

  7. I was bored in a meeting and played this game once. It was a meeting of the Area Leadership Team -- a group of august missionaries committed to chaste and conservative living. We called ourselves the ALT -- so I spoofed and put www.alt.etc in the minutes. It was porn site. I think it sent pop-ups to my colleagues desktops.
