No idea if this is new or not, but I just stumbled across this

http://www.gamemania.be/Default.aspx?tabid=87&gmgame=26978

A 1600 points card for Skyrim from Belgium's largest video game retailer, with a release date of May 9th.

Again, no idea if this has popped up anywhere else before, but in case I discovered something new here, I just wanted to share it.

My friend wants Portal 1. If anybody still has the free copy of Portal 1 that came with the Steam preorder of Portal 2 and doesn't know what to do with it, he would love to get it.

Thanks for that copy, cid798! 
 
And yeah, most people got that giftable copy from the Orange Box. If you bought it and already owned HL2 and/or Ep1 on that Steam account, you could give the new copy that came with the Orange Box to a friend

" Well, I'm Portuguese and I'm a scout ... We learn a code, the "Angular code". 
In truth number 10, there are a list of simbols, live V's and upside down V's and squares and stuff. That's the code 
I descodificated it and i gived me this : 
 
NHMPSHP TAS HPC HL WMCG WMC JCCS KRHPC WHH LHOOHT WMC GHPCU. 
 
I cant find a solution yet, but this is what ive found. 
But, there might be some sort of letter conection, like A=C or something, but I couldnt find it. 
 
But, there is something interesting here : 
  
NHMPSHP TAS HPC HL WMCG WMC JCCS KRHPC WHH LHOOHT WMC GHPCU.  
 
This too groups of three letters constantily reapear trough the message : WMC and HPC. 
Cant find anything in the Google. 
 
P.S. : For the code I used :   http://www.cne-escutismo.pt/recursos/cscodigoscifras/codigo20.htm  But it is in Portuguese, just look at the picture, and try for yourselves. Thx ! "

I did some digging around, and found this wikipedia page 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigpen_cipher 
which mentioned AC2 and has this image 
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7e/Ac2_cipher_key.png
That one is different from the one in the Portuguese link. I compared the two and got this
 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
ACEGIKMOQBDFHJLNPRSWYUTXZV 
and then I deciphered the message to
 JOHNSON WAS ONE OF THEM THE BEES DRONE TOO FOLLOW THE MONEY 
 
Edit: this reminded me of what DystopiaX said a while back: 
I think that Mr. Smith is simply a pseudonym for a Templar. Since their order is supposedly secretive, I don't think that Subject 16 would have been able to uncover the adapter's name just like that, more likely the name "Mr. Smith" was used to indicate an anonymous person, much like "Mr. Johnson" is.
 Seems like he was onto something with 'Mr Johnson'^^
Edit2: according to google, people elsewhere figured this out in november 2009 already...

It's a pretty good way to present ads. It's not all that 'in your face' and you're awarded for clicking an ad.
