    I read this today...there was a binary message encoded in the parachute that let the rover down. Also, there are other "Easter eggs" to be seen on the rover as time goes by. Those nerds!!

    My landline phone (VoIP) ran out of memory so now I can't block any more numbers. That is how bad it has been. And now they are spoofing local phone numbers trying to get me to answer.
