Gizmo Quiz: Saturday, 04 June 2005

Rules: First to guess (know?) what it is plus provide a link to image used wins and gets to host the GQ next Saturday.

To see the GIZMO in all its glory Click Here [saltspring.gulfislands.com].

The Gizmo is the pic on the left. The compass is to help you find your way;-) Obscure visual "hints" will replace the compass so hit reload/refresh occassionaly.

To see snide visual commentary Click Here [saltspring.gulfislands.com].

New foo-lish images will be provided as deemed necessary by your host (that's me) and may be viewed through the amazing technology of reloading/refreshing the page.

On your mark

Get set

GO GIZMO GO ...

Is it really really small?

Is the gizmo just the thing on the tip or the whole picture?

Second visual hint. Note: the meaning is the same as the first. ;-)

Reload Gizmo page.

smaller than a microscope?

that's no answer - microscopic means can it only be SEEN with a microscope!

while you're at it - is it metal?

that's no answer: yes it certainly was. I may deserve a slap for it but it really was an answer ...

can it only be SEEN with a microscope: yes.

is it metal? Yes.

Another silly pic for the Gizmo Funny page. Reload now.

Note: there is unconfirmed gossip (originating here) that this is a pic of Macguru ...

Yes, it is smaller than a microscope.

That had me laughing out loud! Nice one...

An hour in and no "guesses". So an appropriate foo-lish pic added to the Gizmo Funnies page. Reload.

Is it related to electronics? It involves electronics (what doesn't these days?) but electronics are not in the displayed Gizmo itself.

I think i've got what it is, but for the record I can't find the picture you've used anywhere...

I think i've got what it is: so, what is it?

...a closeup of the cantilever / diamond stylus from a record player cartridge?

Does it have a medical purpose?

a closeup of the cantilever : hey that's what the bridge and brakes pics said ...

diamond stylus from a record player cartridge? No. The quiz continues ...

Does it have a medical purpose? Not directly. In some convoluted indirect "six degrees of sep" way perhaps but medical is likely a blind alley leading over a cliff to mix metaphors.

I have added another appropriate silly image to the Gizmo Funnies page. Reload.

is it the read/write head for a hard disk drive?

is it the read/write head for a hard disk drive? No. It is illiterate. Nothing to do with hard drives either.

Have added another hint to to Gizmo Quiz page. Reload.

As WebmasterWorld women apparently have a life on weekends I have added a "woman at comp" pic to Gizmo Funnies page so that they aren't left out.

Note: last "hint" image was misaligned. Corrected. Reload. Who knows, it might make a difference.
