This was supposed to last ~30 days??

Didn't HUNT or someone say something along the lines of "just wait" about the difficulty of the question and how "just entering the URL" was easy compared to whats to come? Or did I miss understand something?

If it is it's probably one of the answers to "to drink" that gave the out of order response. I had a list earlier and threw it away.

there was an out of sequence for "to drink?"?????? without the error right? You sure??

The Jargon File, which describes itself as a "Hacker's Dictionary," puts grok in a programming context:

When you claim to ‘grok’ some knowledge or technique, you are asserting that you have not merely learned it in a detached instrumental way but that it has become part of you, part of your identity. For example, to say that you “know” LISP is simply to assert that you can code in it if necessary — but to say you “grok” LISP is to claim that you have deeply entered the world-view and spirit of the language, with the implication that it has transformed your view of programming. Contrast zen, which is similar supernal understanding experienced as a single brief flash.
The entry existed in the very earliest forms of the Jargon File, dating from the early 1980s. A typical tech usage from the Linux Bible, 2005 characterizes the Unix software development philosophy as "one that can make your life lot simpler once you grok the idea".

grok seems to mean a human being becomeing part of something. In wikopedia it says to merge. You know something so well it becomes part of you.

I am sitting here thinking about going through the garbage and taping the list together. I think that means that this game should be taken in moderation. I'm an addict and my name is Blaine. I'm off to the nearest ATS anonymous meeting. Congratulations to whoever gets the last answer. If this is the last question. Don't forget the part about the new question every day. It might mean they will add a new question every day that this game keeps going?

I got that message to probably 50 answers I tried for "to drink". I never did get the VMS message.

I've got to go before I have an AADD attack in front of my staff

This may be nothing, but some of the past clues were from science fiction mediums. One was from the film The Day the Earth Stood Still published in 1951. Another was from the novel Stranger In a Strange land published in 1961. Could there be a pattern here?
