    Second letter is H because 1 of two things is happening the past 2 days, either
    Joinlink is wacking out every system on the link OR I am getting hit with some
    really nasty NetBots! 60 calls today?!?!?!? I went ot log on and the system wouldn't let me again, I look and all 10 of my nodes are answering and entering
    system.. This BBS has been rock solid since the day I put it up, very few crashes, 2 crashes in 2 days with the same MO?!?!?

    Hmmmm

    Disreguard this pissed off message.. Not so sure it is a CNet problem right
    now could be a Windows 10 problem.. Might have to go back to Windows 7.. Not something I wanted to do...

    Limit the number of connections from the same IP to 1, maybe 2. No more. Will put an end to that problem REAL quick.

    Nope, not Solitaire.

    To recap, first letter was S, second letter was O, now the third letter is...

    Today, though, I'm going to really stir the pot by giving you THREE LETTERS...

    E

    In that case I'm going to go with Sudoku- I think the letters X, E, and L reference the syllables of the word axial which describes the game grid.

    So, they're syllables, SOK being the first syllable of one word, and XLE being the last syllable of another word. (For XLE, think back to Gameboy games).

    So I have no idea. What follows a "t"? hmm...an "h"? an "o"? Maybe another "x"?
    Does this have to do with Roman numerals?

    Wow, I can't believe it, we've reached the End, the Elusive, always Energetic, End. Well, time to Equalize things, shall we:

    I think you figured out what that last letter is. Dotoran's new game is...

    SokXleMite, pronounced Sock-SIL-Mite

    It's my take on the Sokoban genre of games, but with a wicked twist!

    Check the CNET Facebook page later tonight for some screenshots to further entice you all!

    Sokoban, and all it's other variants, is a somewhat maze based game, with walls, hallways, blocks, special home positions, and you. The goal is to move the blocks onto the special home positions.
