has anyone else noticed that each time you refresh the front page you get a different pic.

Don't think i's anything but it is kinda cool.

Even more so is that we can buy cards soon.

*yay*

From their online site and reviews, Colette actually sells all sorts of weird little things besides insanely expensive clothing, like ipod accessories and Marc Jacobs zodiac cards.

In this image here, does anyone know what it is that the sticker is attached to? It looks like a vacuum cleaner, to me! Although the ripped sticker behind the PPC sticker suggests it could be a vehicle of some kind.

Also, in the bottom right corner, what are the partial red 'T' (if that is indeed what it is) and the G all about?

Sorry, i have more questions than answers Confused

With regards to the image, it looks strongly to me like the sticker has been placed (and photographed) sideways on on a UK car park ticket machine. The slot with the coins and the big green button are what I'm basing this on.

Agreed - it's a ticket machine. Calderdale council (W. Yorkshire, where I live) have got similar ones in all their public car parks and for street parking so I recognised it straight away. You've got a coin slot, the green button makes the ticket print, top left is where the screen is and at the bottom is the moulded bit of plastic that your ticket comes out of. I really can't believe I just typed all that about a ticket machine.......

well i'll be, i've never seen a ticket machine like that before! now that you mention the coin slot its obvious that's what it is, but the first time i saw it I couldn't make it out as that at all.

well thanks for the in-depth description anyhow. i'll update my ticket machine spotting guide forthwith Wink

Just for the record, we have that exact same type of ticket machine at my University here in South Australia, so it's not just a UK thing.

The cards

If you click on the picture of the cards on index3.html, you're taken to cards.html, on which is the by-now-familiar collection of six cards and mylar package. However, it's been resized from the legible 800x600 to the rather smudged 528x396. A random choice (perhaps they were trying for 533x400 and missed) or something more?

I wonder

If anyone has seen the new splash page for Perplexcity.com you would know the pictures change a lot. An one of them is a coffee cup. (If its not there refresh your browser..theres like 4 different pics) I also heard that one of London's webcams picked up someone at a coffee house? And also..Perplex City Academy is located at One Tavern Square in Old Town. Just going out on a limb here but maybe they are all connected...maybe someone at a coffee house has the cube? lol..call me crazy i know...just taking a guess

[EDIT: merged into existing thread. yanka.]
