Linking Weather and Climate

It has been many years since Drake's adventures were published and today I've finally decided I will not return to Assassindrake.com. I will leave what is there up for ol' times sake.
I have instead decided to focus on another personal hobby, weather and climate, and created a website around this. You can visit my new site, Linking Weather and Climate, here.

Save the Internet with Milk

Quite possibly the most important rule of the internet, Net Neutrality, is in danger. If you haven't already heard, congress is pushing to allow ISPs to route packets at two different speeds depending on where those packets originated giving big corporations, which can afford the faster speed, an edge over the little guy. This could mean that sites like assassindrake.com would loose visitors tired of waiting for lower-tier web pages to load.

Please visit SaveTheInternet.com and sign the petition if you haven't yet.

Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, Senator Ted Stevens is against Net Neutrality...
"And again, the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes." Hear Ted Stevens talk about the Internet.

While Ted Stevens is funny enough (though very disturbing for the man in charge of regulating E-commerce) I found the reviews for Tuscan milk even funnier. When amazon.com started selling milk, people started reviewing. Here's one such review:

"11 of 20 people found the following review helpful:
This milk comes from mammals., July 20, 2006
Reviewer: Ted Stevens "Ted" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews
Tuscan Whole Milk does not come from a truck. It comes from a series of tubes from the the mammal ut utters.

And what heppens to you you, own personal milk? I just the the other day whole milk was sent from my staff at 10 oclock on friday and I got it yesterday. WHY? Because it got tangled up with all these things that going on shopping market commercially!"

I found this review at this page but if its not still there try looking for a review with this title: This milk comes from mammals., July 20, 2006.

Edit: I found out that Amazon is only showing the most recent 750 reviews so the above link may not work much longer.

There is a new maze game on AssassinDrake.com This is a generator of old-style mazes from the puzzle books. It looks and feels like the paper mazes. I tried to limit the controls to act like you were looking at a piece of paper. The only difference is that you cannot go outside of the lines and you can play as many mazes as you like. Its as simple as paper and pencil version only it lasts longer.

There are two sizes to choose from. Each maze takes around a minute to complete. To begin, click on the letter "S" and to create a new maze click "F". If the maze seems kind of sluggish, you can right-click and lower the quality (the maze still looks pretty good at low quality too).

I made this maze as a favor to an old friend. (This one is for you MPF, the owner of the wrench) I give you a simple puzzle-book-style maze.

There is a new look for the home page of AssassinDrake.com inspired by the US Dollar bill and Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Pyramid symbolizes the greatness of AssassinDrake.com. The triangle with Drake's eye is an ancient symbol for divinity: meaning Drake is the God and protector of AssassinDrake.com.

When you hover over the eye, there is an eclipse which symbolizes how cool it looks when the sun is completely blocked out. Likewise, the hieroglyphs symbolize cool-looking-but-otherwise-meaningless-objects.

The sand color represents sand and MMVI represents 2004 (the year AssassinDrake.com was founded).

Contact Us

A long time ago I removed the "Contact Us" link on AssassinDrake.com pages but I left the words "Contact Us" on the bottom of the page. No doubt, this has confused many of our visitors trying to click on it. Now a new contact us form has been created to replace the heavily-spammed email address link. In order to contact AssassinDrake.com through this form you will have to enter a six-letter security code. The purpose of this is to cut down on automated emails being sent to AssassinDrake.com. If we begin to get too many phony comments on our site we may add the six-letter code to comments pages too.

The long awaited Assassin Drake game is finally here. Ok, It is quite different from the first idea for an Assassin Drake game but nevertheless, now you can play! Play Spine Here!

The object of Spine is to duplicate a spine shown on screen. The better your copy looks the better your score. The scoring is a percentage based on how well you replicate the speed and orientation of the spine. Basically, you can duplicate the spine at any location on screen but you must go the same direction as the original and you must make it look the same size. There are tons of help buttons within the game to better explain how to play.

The great part about Spine is that you can create a user account to save your high scores and compare them to other players.

A "Roadmap" for Monster

Assassin Drake presents a new visual aid to help understand the plot of Monster! To begin with this was a simple chart that showed the relationships between ten or so characters in the story. Now the graph covers most of the important characters past the mid-point and each character and relationship has a description to go allow with it.
Begin by clicking Johan.

Each character description and relationship will reveal some element of the story - this is not for people who have not read or seen monster yet! If you are in the progress of reading Monster, just avoid characters that you haven't heard about yet.
