Hoodlum Disappoints Again 43

It appears that Dharma doesn't really want you. It's officially 8/20 here in the Eastern Time Zone, and the Volunteer Assessment tests at DharmaWantsYou.com were supposed to have begun yesterday. Yet again Hoodlum had dropped the ball... unless the test consists of laminating your ID cards, which I think we've passed with flying colors!

Seriously, if they couldn't get their act together, shouldn't they have at least changed the date on the login screen to 8/20 or sent out an email explaining the delay? I think everyone should email Hans Van Eeghen and voice your disappointment. Why would anyone want to volunteer for such a disorganized company?

The wait continues...

Glad I watched Star Wars instead of pushing F5 all night! Little yoda fighting with a light sabre is the best!!!

Codysmom said...

btw, love the pic of kitty with DI laminated card

Dennis said...

Thanks :) It had to be laminated!!!!


BTW, has anyone seen the weird Damon Lindelof / Joss Whedon video:

Is this where the real ARG action is? Has Damon given up on Dharma Doesn't Want You?

Codysmom said...

I'm afraid the feeling is mutual for me, if DI doesn't want me and I sure don't want to work (for free!!!) for them.... lol

Codysmom said...

I'll check it out

unc879wins said...

In case you missed it...

DWY

Codysmom said...

thanks, unc... I did miss it.... (ROFL!)

DDWY = Dharma Doesn't Want You
new arg...... oh, boy!

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

<--- profile change to Lostpedia name... matches my DWY ID now too... I've standardized... isn't that a type of test?!?! Probably same results as the urinalysis and sobriety tests :(

maven said...

Love your new post, Dennis. And very, very funny, unc! At least you guys are keeping me laughing!

Syed said...

Anyone else trying to crack the login?

Dennis said...

There's no point. The login will go away when they send the email out.

Codysmom said...

We don't need to crack the login... it's just going to be an e-mail that's sent to me at 8:46 am eastern time. It will explain something about the test and maybe why they're late or whatever... Then we look at the source and Iamontheinside will have some info for us, but it won't be anything to do and we'll wait til Friday thinking something might happen.....

maven said...

Codysmom: Have you lived this on another time-line? LOL

Codysmom said...

heh heh Living Lost, I guess....

Codysmom said...

Since you're still here, dennis, let me say thanks to you and nick for the great puzzles. They were a fun and challenging diversion while waiting for DDWY (and helped me keep my mind off my cold)

@ k3lvini5aliv3: No, I'm still here ;)

Anyway, amusing watching the comments. not amusing checking the DWY site. That music... drives. me. crazy.

Codysmom said...

good one, eris!

Codysmom said...

ok, well I'm going to bed. See y'all tomorrow!

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

I'm holding out until midnight local time.

Codysmom said...

it's almost 2am here... now, I'm REALLY off to bed!

eris077 said...

Thanks, codysmom! Heheh. I had to come out of lurk-mode for that one.

It's getting late though and obviously they're not updating. Really poor form. It will be interesting to see how they explain this one.

Argh. Everyone have a good night (morning). It was definitely more worthwhile peeking in every few hours for an update here than checking DWY....again. Guess maybe it is time to leave the kickoff party.

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

You know this thing will kick off about 3am your time :)

maven said...

Night all. Hopefully, I'll wake up tomorrow to an email full of explanations!

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

I like this quote from the 8/14 e-mail from Hans....

"Despite a somewhat disappointing start, this event proved to be an extremely successful endeavour that introduced the Dharma Initiative to a fresh and talented cohort of
volunteer applicants."

Boy the pot sure is running its trap to the kettle... huh?!?

melodious said...

is this post another slovaltine clue?

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

g'bye thread... time of death... 12:01am Pacific/3:01 Eastern... the 20th of August.... A.R.G. kickoff has officially p00ped.

Dennis said...

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

DISREGARD... IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE GOING LIVE!!!

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

Dennis, lol.. literally seconds after I pronounced her DEAD... she comes back to us... just like Charlie :)

Simone said...

hey guys!!!
I'm connecting to DWY: they're updating the site RIGHT NOW!

Will they finally start the assessment?

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

4 hours later of "site updating" we get the "Assessments to Commence on 9/7/08" on the main screen. :)

k3lvini5aliv3 said...

Nothing interesting in the "source" on this page.

Dennis said...
