Haha.

Well, it's synced with everyone else, and the timer starts at 108 when it is reset just like in Lost so that wouldn't really work. It's a competition -- whoever pushes it first gets 2 points, but everyone who attempts still get 1 point. You get more features as you get points and level up.

Most of us keep it open all the time, and chat with each other in it. We've had it running now for 74 days (1021 resets) which is the longest we've ever kept it running. This means it has literally been reset every 108 mins by at least 1 person (but usually 5-10 people) for the past 74 days.

I know it sounds a little silly to most outsiders, but if you're a big Lost fan it's pretty fun!

I completely agree with the first part of your comment, but...

Nobody comments code anyway.

That is not true. Comments and documentation are necessary most of the time. But I'm not talking about comments like "type 2 = url" - those are just bad. I'm just talking about comments that make the code more clear on what it is doing and/or why.
