Guest question from Raghuvansh. Fully framed by him. Thanks sire, you’ve earned a   GQHero Trophy!

X is a corrupt version of an extract from a work by 1. We know X for its ubiquitousness in a certain context.

X’s first non-tech usage in said context is thought to be in catalogs published by a company A which specialized in making 2, so much so that the A became a generic term for 2.

This non-tech use was duplicated in a tech form for the first time in a well-known software B which was originally made by a company C (named after 3). C merged with D (named after 4) some time ago and since then, B has been branded as a D product.

ID X. In case of joblessness, you may also try to ID all the other variables in the question.

Ever wondered how you stack up in terms of points v/s some other Boiledbeans user? Wanted to know when it was that someone overtook you? Ever wondered just how far ahead/behind you are from someone else? Well, go head-to-head!

Head-to-head currently graphs your score v/s that of some other BB user. Here’s an example for how Logik stacks up v/s AmK: Check it live!

Logik v/s AmK

Go on, give it a shot.

This feature was suggested by Logik. Any other ideas?? Let us know at boiledbeans@gmail.com.

Boiledbeans lite version

devadutta @ 10:17 pm, GMT +0000 ( 1258582621 ) Play

Lets face it. We don’t have access to high bandwidth internet all the time. Sometimes we are on the phone, sometimes in an airport or sometimes the tubes are just clogged and loading webpages can take awfully long. Even super lite designs like Boiledbeans can also take a long time to load.

So, inspired by a suggestion from sidsen, we give you Boiledbeans lite.

Visit the link below to turn lite version on

http://boiledbeans.net/?lite=on

The lite version will stay until the current session dies. If you want to turn it off manually, you can visit

http://boiledbeans.net/?lite=off

What sequence connects:

PS: D5PQ has been moderated and points assigned. If any of you saw a jump in your points, this is why.

Cracked by everyone. Yes, the middle guy isn’t a direct connect, but it was a simpler connection :-)
