LineRider – When wasting time on the web becomes art
If you think you don't have a life – working hard hours on code, spending your free time on open source projects – you need to take a look at the LineRider phenomena and rethink that.

I usually post about problems that I've solved. But every once in a while, for all my digging around and googling, I come up on something that I can't solve quickly and thuroughly enough - so I post about it here in the hope someone can help.
