Thanks to Dave Keays over at the GRC newsgroups for the following timewaster:

HINT - This is page number one. That should be pretty obvious, because it has the numeral "1" above. But there's a problem... there is no link to page 2! How on earth will you find page 2 without a handy link taking you to it? You have to think like a hacker! To get to page 2, you'll have to play around with the web address (URL) of this page. Change it a little, then go there. If you're right, you'll get the next page. If you're wrong, you'll get an ugly error message.

Not that hard, YMMV :P in which case, don't act like a real hacker (else you'll be punished) act like a researcher and find the cheatsheets. Maybe Wazoo should adapt this for the membership entry quiz.

(Yeah the link name looks terrible. Of course I found no obvious danger, half the GRC regulars have run through it, but ... use your own judgement)

Woody.... I did not find the cheat sheet until #21 and then used other sources (Yahoo Answers has almost every question).

Woody....
Indeed, you've 'cracked it' Steven. And since the habit of reading between the lines has evidently evolved into a fine art form "here" I confess my need to afford you the civility of deserved recognition is matched by the urge to indulge in some low innuendo (possibly cross-cultural?). Perhaps I should apologize to lady readers but instead I extend to them the courtesy of imagining that, as representatives of the gender famed for its refinement, they would not 'get it' anyway. Oops, can't help myself, I'm on a 'roll'. Aagh, again! Less sugar, less Benny Hill, less Beavis (almost aagh) and Butt-Head, less red 'meat' (aagh!). Could superior linguistic skills be a liability? But I digress.
