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.

Is it really really small?

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

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?

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



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 ...

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



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.

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



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.
