Were they close to each other (in the same room)?

Was there any result of him moving? If so, did it affect him/her/anyone else? Was it rather favourable or unfavourable?

And, yes, the usual questions:
are they humans? adults? alive?

"This isn't some form of Office Assistant, is it?"
Good one, David - I'd guess that's it

Katy - do you think it's bad to be tangible?
Did you click him?
Did you want to click him, but couldn't?
If so, because he moved away from the mouse pointer?
"He" wouldn't happen to be the Chesire Cat, by any chance?

'm going to spiol this as you've all pretty much got it. Also I'm getting married on Saturday, and so won't be back for a week or so, but when I do I'll have lots of wedding related puzzles!

Point to him (hover over with mouse). He grins (well, smiles) and rotates by 90 degrees


Not one of my best I know, but I'll think of some good ones!

Best congratulations for the wedding!

(Not certain of the correct terminology in such congrats, except that one is not supposed to say "Many happy returns".)
