Websites and the Konami Code
UPDATE: The Konami code on neilbickford.com no longer points to Kelly’s website, but to something else… Kelly’s website can still be acsessed from neilbickford.com/kelly.htm
Just recently, my friend Mitchell Riley showed me his new site, Interesting Numbers. It’s still in development, as some screens currently bring up errors. (not 404,though)
The idea behind Interesting Numbers is that people can submit facts for numbers, eventually creating a huge database of number facts. On the front page it has the first number that no facts have been entered in about, which would come in handy, when the screens are full with numbers, the newest entered in numbers, and the newest facts.
Then I tried entering in random words in the number field. It didn’t accept it, which was good. Then I tried a fraction that I knew was important, 866/455, which was the average distance between points in a Sierpinski gasket.
Decimals also didn’t work.
I notified Mitchell about this, and so there might be datatype errors while he’s fixing the bug, which should be quick.
Of course, I had to try it out, so now on my website, there are 3 easter eggs, one being the simple “Press this!” button, which brings up digits of pi, the second being when you type in he Konami Code on a computer (up,up,down,down,left,right,left,right,b,a,enter), which redirects you to my little sister’s home page, and the third is a secret.
Of course, you could look at the source.
