The winner is...

Last week, I offered 100 Geek Points (along with the associated bragging rights) to anybody who could explain the significance of "Auriga, Cetus, Centaurus, Cancer, Scutum, Eridanus." Two people attempted to win the prize.

Geeks, I am disappoint.

Evidently, not even 100 Geek Points could offset the shame and ridicule that would come of getting the answer wrong. </sarcasm> This says a lot for the question's intimidation level, and suggests that it was indeed worthy of the prize.

So, how did those bravest of geeks do?

Jeff was unable to divine the correct answer, but he did correctly deduce that "Auriga, Cetus, Centaurus, Cancer, Scutum, Eridanus" was from Stargate. For getting this close to the correct answer, and for having the toDuj to try, I award him 40 Geek Points.

Cassie clearly brought her "A" game. Not only did she correctly identify the sequence as Earth's stargate address, she named the one episode (out of 214) whewre one could easily read the address:

Congratulations, Cassie. You have earned the Grand Prize: 100 Geek Points. Leaping up on the table and doing a mocking jig is optional, but encouraged.
