Hacker Puzzle

Visit the puzzle at Hacker Puzzle
To solve this puzzle you will have to find the secret files on the server. That is. you will have to find the correct url to go to the next page using the hint given in the current page. Pretty simple but good enough to refresh you out of your work
For instance:
First Page url is http://www.freestuffhotdeals.com/hacker/1.html and it shows 1 written at the middle of the page. The next page will be http://www.freestuffhotdeals.com/hacker/2.html
That means changing the url to 2.html

Give it a try, you only need a little general knowledge to further and further.

Here is the solution for the Hacker puzzle. See it only when you are stuck:

  4. The writer of goodtoknowit.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: No matter how plain and clear your language, someone will impute hidden meaning and evil intent. I will be back.
