Kosta Well, the competition ended yesterday, and here are the answers... All of you that haven't played, you missed an easy prize because all people that participated - won something The winners will be contacted shortly and they will choose their prizes.

Answers to the first set of questions:

1. When did Abandonia first appear on the internet? Give exact date.

2. How is this date relevant to Kosta's (owner's) family?

3. What typo can be found on the SQ Collection box released in 1997?

Ken Williams - He founded Sierra On-Line, for nearly two decades one of the world's leading PC game makers, selling it to Cendant Corp. in 1996 for $1 billion.

6. Duke Nukem is a series we all know very well... but! The very first game in the series had 2 official names (depending on which version you have of the game). One of the names were of course Duke Nukem. What was the second name? Give a reason as to why for extra score!
Version 2.0 was named Duke Nukum.
Reason: Apogee heard rumours that there was another game character in Europe with the copy-righted name of Duke Nukem. Because of this they quickly changed the name to Duke Nukum. Later they realized that the name wasn't copy-righted, so they bought the rights and the series have been named Duke Nukem ever since.

Answers to the second set of questions:

1. Who was the first person to achieve Admin status on Abandonia forums besides Kosta? Why is this person's admin status undisputable?
- Titan. The Abandonia forums had a very slow start. Even 3 months after the opening it still had only around 2 new posts per day and I was determined to close it because I thought it will never come to life and serve any purpose to the site. However, Titan forced me to keep it alive regardless, for reasons only known to him His judgement proved to be right!

2. Only one villain has ever won over Batman in a fist-fight, leaving Batman crippled as a result. Who?
- Bane. He broke Batman's spine in a fight.

3. When did Maikel take over the designing part of the site? Who was in charge of design before? What was Maikel's occupation at the time he started the redesign?

- Alan Scott, the very first Green Lantern.

5. How many servers does Abandonia run on? Which web hosting companies own these, and what do you estimate is the max allocated bandwith (in Mbits) of each?
- It runs on two servers. LeaseWeb and HiVelocity, 10Mbit + 20Mbit for a total of 30Mbits/sec of bandwith

6. In what comic was Batgirl shot in the spine and paralyzed for life? And who has the shooter?
- The Joker shot her in "The Killing Joke".

Data - 1065

8. The Joker is possibly the most wellknown enemy of Batman, but what was his occupation before he changed into The Joker?
- He was a seriously bad stand-up comedian - NOT a thief. Thieving was something he did on the side.
