News from the Lab : Questions and Answers

On August 16th you wrote about the Usenix conference and mentioned/posted pictures of a hamster puzzle. I have tried searching for a supplier of this puzzle and have not had any success. Could you please tell me what the correct name of this puzzle is and who the manufacturer is?

The manufacturer is "ThinkFun" and the name of the puzzle is "Prairie Dog Town Stacking Puzzle". Daavid had limited luggage space so he trashed the box before leaving Boston. And since there are no Prairie Dogs in Finland, he kind of thought that they looked like hamsters. The manufacturer's name is on the puzzle, so we were able to perform a successful search. Try "prairie dog think fun" on Amazon and you should get a direct hit.


Will there be a possibility to comment on your blogs? Perhaps [some]time in the future?

The weblog's server sits within a secure isolated Security Labs network. It's not a part of our regular production network. When we add a post to the weblog it doesn't end up directly on the web. Once added we next "publish" the post, which then copies it to our Web server. Therefore, interactive features such as comments aren't really practical.

However – you can provide us with feedback using the address listed at the top of the page. Most of the team belongs to the address and we frequently reply. If there is interest, perhaps we might begin a semi-regular reader's feedback post.
