Dudes, dudettes and *nix users, welcome to the Gizmo Quiz!

I have the honnor of replacing korkus2000 this week.

This week, we will be very clear on the rules. We need 2 simple answers in the same message. Someone just providing the link or just providing one correct answer will not win.

Here are the questions :

A)Who is making it?
B)What is it?

And here [vif.com] is the Gizmo!

Good luck to all!

JonB don't explain, you will be giving away
secrets. I was so close.

To late, now the playing field is more level.

Yes JonB, the second URL is correct. korkus200 sent it to me yerturday. It was one of his find.

Was the chart updated last week?

I was even on the right web site. Did not look
around enough however. This is the second time
I have done that.

At least we all have a chance next week with,
JonB as the ref :)

From the photo I decided this must have something to do with visible light, and not just particles, so my first search was "laser accelerator".

On a Google image search, the exact Gizmo image shows on page 2. Stripping the URL down to the root gives all the information.

But JonB got there quicker.

I really dont know how korkus2000 originally found this piece. But lazer accelerator was a very relevant query.

I notice that the winners chart was not updated last week. Key_Master must be quite busy. So I decided to do it myself :

Here is the Updated Official Gizmo Quiz Scoreboard [vif.com].

Dont worry, its Key_Master's so it wont crash your browser. :)

Congrats JonB!

Ho, that was a very special game with 10 different gizmos to spot at once.

At the beginning, I was alone to host the game. My work took me away from WebmasterWorld from months. I was too busy to host the game during that long. People here started to miss the game and asked 'hey Mac where is the quiz? We want our game now!' We soon realised the Gizmo Quiz became one of WebmasterWorld's tradition.

As soon I could, I came back in force with this multiple game to catch up. You can notice in the same column that lawman and Air also won some points for a total of 10 for this round.

It is a problem for the same person to host the game week after week. This is one of the reasons we transfer it to each other since a couple of months. I think it's funnier that way too.
