Weird Whyville Happens
by Etrnl *
Now, Whyville does have it's up and downs,
crime and punishment, but let me tell you, NOTHING is weirder than the
I am Agent Etrnl *, investigating the strange and bazaar
happenings. I work alone and seek clues to the WHO, WHAT, WHERE,
WHEN, HOW, and expecailly WHY.
My first assignment happened when I couldn't
see my face, let alone anyone else's.
A-#001 Seeing Through You
Date: Saturday, March 18, 2000
Where: Whyville Square
I doubt if anyone is at fault for this, but
it is so strange that this happening happened right after the Face
Factory opened up for business.
Clue #1 - The Face Factory opens for business at the time
I could not see my face.
I was up until 1:30 P.M. Central finding out
how this couldn't happen. I signed on again at 3:00 P.M. Central to find
this message on the BBS:
I can't see my face!!!! What's going on?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
This meant that I wasn't alone. Someone
else had noticed, too. No one knows, until now, that I was a special
agent for the Why-Files.
After recieving the message, I explored more
My house: Nothing. My face still does not show.
Whyville West: My face is not there. (Why do the call it west when it
should be east? Oh, well, that's another story.)
Everywhere I checked seemed to be clueless.
What could this be? A virus? A cracker code? A small mistake? Or
someone's wrong doing? These questions ran through my head. Over and
over, until I found another clue in the BBS:
Thank you! It will probably take 3-5 working dayssince we are working
out the kinks in this progam.
KINKS! Why hadn't I thought of it all along?!
The kinks had kept the faces from showing!
Well, that puts case A-#001 into the pile of solved Why-Files.
