Help needed on doing this wretched Easter Egg on Google!  Cannot get the squiggly lines to match up before they change as I am pressing the button.

Anyone got any tips on getting this right?

If you go to Google.com, they sometimes have silly ways of showing their name, yes?  Today, it is an animation.  Part of the animation is a button (bottom right corner) similar to a 'play' button on your video recorder or similar.  Press it and the animation changes.  There are little tests to do (arithmatic is the first one) and once that is complete it goes on to another test etc etc.

An East Egg can sometimes be hidden 'gems' (extra footage, prizes, you name it) inside DVD films, excel spreadsheets (the blank ones, but I have yet to find those) and similar.

They are basically a gift from the code writer/producer/publisher to the cogni centi of the population who know what they are looking at!

You have to watch the animation for a while (bumble bee floating around carrying the play button!).  When the bumble bee lands, then you can press the play button!  Grin

Must be your work firewall!  Try it at home.

Anywho, am off for a long weekend doing nothing!

There was something animated yesterday to celebrate the anniversary of the first illustrated book?  It was super, but didn't see anything like you're describing Jess.

I do love all the different Google home page versions of their name.

As Jess suggested, maybe your work firewall prevented that.  it was definitely moving and I saw it on someone's else's PC here too.
