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 and if you miss you’ll accidentally open the paper instead. But if you go back out and wait, it will come back again.

The pictures change randomly among 6 designs every time you close and 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 right.
Page scroll <<01/01>> became operational with the article posted on May10, 2006.
