Holic said...

Andrew Fry said...

YES!!!

Holic said...

Does Yahoo count as a publication?? -.-

Andrew Fry said...

I am ruling a no on that one.

taurusdragon said...

What exactly are you asking for question #1? definition of HTTP specification?

Holic said...

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/nation/20070610-1847-whalemoving.html

does that work for #12?????!?!?

XKrNxBallarX said...

What specifically do u mean by financial information for oracle? can we just screenshot or get the URL for the stock price?

Cinderella said...

Is leaving a comment on your page the definition of # 11????

Andrew Fry said...

HTTP is the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol and the basis for the world wide web server. A specification is the technical document that defines what it will do in regards to features and functionality. Question for you. Have you Googled "HTTP specification"?

Andrew Fry said...

shorthand for specification is specs

The Napster said...

can we create a tag cloud for www.exit133.com ??

Kimberly said...

Will a print screen work for showing an item if there is no way either of us can figure out how to copy the url address needed to answer the question? (Question 2)

Andrew Fry said...

Yes to Cinderella.

I need more than the stock quote, and an screen shot with EPS, outlook etc would work.

Andrew Fry said...

Yes to Napster and Kimberly

Kimberly said...

Do both team memebers need to create a blog entry?

Andrew Fry said...

Each member of the team has to create a blog entry.

Warpaint1976 said...

For oracle do you want the stock financial info?

Holic said...

Can you explain #1 to us.... plz ? :) we still don't get it!

taurusdragon said...

do you want us to finish the scavenger hunt before we sent you the notification email?

Andrew Fry said...

You can send one notification email before you finish, then send the final one.

Holic, please read through the comments for your answer.

Kimberly said...

By travel itinerary, are you asking for the list of things to do [ie: plans] for a weekend or are you asking for the flight/hotel information? [cost, times, etc].

Andrew Fry said...

Kimberly, I am asking for flights in and out plus hotel in regards to itinerary.

Tacoma Gnome said...

Such the honor!

Thank you for putting me into your scavenger hunt.

Wow. Item number 4.

What can I say!

That is quite easy, just as long as your class doesn't spend its time in my posts to find it. Imagine that! Digging through 11 or more pages to find my favorite movies.

Until Next Time,
TacomaGnome

Kimberly said...

What are the ages of the kids? I keep getting asked that by the hotel/flight thingies.

Andrew Fry said...

Go ahead and make up the ages.

Warpaint1976 said...

What is the name of the Remake of its a mad, mad, mad, world???

Kimberly said...

will you check if a link will work for you?

Warpaint1976 said...

where is yahoo's business offices located?

Andrew Fry said...

Yahoo is headquartered in Mountain View, CA

I checked the link and it worked.

Mad, Mad world has been redone in concept many times.

Thanks for stopping by Gadsby

Tacoma Gnome said...

Certainly my pleasure!

Nancy C. said...

I'm not in your class, just a blog reader (and fan) who decided to give it a go. It was fun, and I hope you'll do more of these scavenger hunts in the future!

Andrew Fry said...

Thanks Nancy, once I review your list I will let you know how you placed among the non class participants.

The Napster said...

This was fun today! So what about the pilot cell phones you mentioned at the beginning of this year?...
