    And then our hapless protagonist plugs in the USB drive and gets his identity stolen.

    Nice cliffhanger @remy, but what happened to Bruce?

  • HardwareGeek (disco)

    The gorilla pushes the emergency stop.

    I don't know if it's typical, but the one and only time I ever did that, it set alarm bells ringing — not what you want for a clandestine conversation.

    Filed under: Not good for nookie, either.

    That is very typical behaviour for the alarm. I have actually never seen an emergency stop on a elevator. It is mostly an alarm if the emergency is a stopped elevator.

    Maybe it was a very fancy hotel? One where they have stop buttons?

    FTFY<x>

  • Dlareg (disco) in reply to JBert

    Having never been able to pay for such a hotel. Does such a button not come with a bell-boy? And as such defeats the purpouse of the "secret" meeting?

    I think it'd be better if the gorilla forced open the inner door of the lift. In that way the safety clamp of the lift will be activated and the lift will be forced to stop. The best thing about it is the alarm will not ring unless the people inside the lift pressed the emergency button (at least these are true on the lift of the building I live)

    Now I'm curious about the way you found that out.

    Bruce is alive and well, in the comments of my code, where he always was.

    Oddly enough, I didn't enter every week - I skipped the one-armed bandit round because I couldn't see a practical way to game it (as I noted in the readme for my poker entry). At least one of the featured entries for that round would have required realtime access to the filesystem of the server running the RNG - even the Lucky Deuce wouldn't be stupid enough to run a slot machine's RNG client-side.

    Now, I just need to figure out how to get my heap of swag delivered to my hideout in the middle of nowhere in Finland...

  • Chromatix (disco) in reply to Dlareg

    I've seen them, on old lifts which don't completely physically isolate their occupants from the shaft wall. These are also usually the ones with memoryless controllers, which just follow the button most recently pushed (whether inside or outside) and don't plan ahead.

    wouldn't be stupid enough

    Well, that would have made it just too easy to cheat.

    Well, at least it was realistic...

  • cheong (disco) in reply to obeselymorbid

    Well, some years ago for unknown reason, when the lift goes down, sometime the lift will stop in the middle of the way. And it didn't take long for us to discover that if you tried to push close the inner door, the lift will continue going down again.

    We're later told by the technicans that the inner door lock had somehow become loosen and can be shaked open a bit on operation. If the detector detect the inner door has been opened, the safety clamp will stop the lift and hold it into position in order to avoid people falling out.

    The faulty part has been replaced and the lift went normal again.

    I think it'd be easy for the gorilla sized man to force open it.
