The Daily News paper
Page editor: Belinda Hobbs
Always shows today's date (from your computer system). Says Vol.1 on
the front cover and the right hand page inside.
The first set of articles is dated 15/03/04 (the Ides of March! hmm...)
which preceeds the launch of the site on 15/05/04 by three months.
Catch the spider when it crawls onto The Daily News paper for
an ingredient in the secret potion recipe #1. You have to be quick

go back out and wait, it will come back again.

re-enter. The one on the cover stays the same and is the same on the first
article inside, until you exit and re-enter the site.
Scroll and click a headline on the left page, read the article on the
