Is something relevant going to happen on that date? If so, does it happen every year on that date?

Are you going to receive something? Do something that you like? See somebody? Finish something you don't like? Have a holiday? Time off work?

Relevant that December 15 is near Christmas? Relevant that it is in winter? Is it the anniversary of something? A birthday?

Is it probable that there are other people who can hardly wait for December 15, for the same or a similar reason as you? People you don't personally know?

Any elections relevant? Sports?

Is something relevant going to happen on that date? yes If so, does it happen every year on that date? no, good question

Are you going to receive something? Do something that you like? See somebody? Finish something you don't like? Have a holiday? Time off work? no or irrel to all

Relevant that December 15 is near Christmas? Relevant that it is in winter? Is it the anniversary of something? A birthday? no to all

Is it probable that there are other people who can hardly wait for December 15, for the same or a similar reason as you? there might be one other person People you don't personally know? no

Any elections relevant? Sports? no to both

Does a vacation start or end on that day?
Relevant that December 15 is a Saturday? no to all

And, somewhat of a BLOOPER - Maybe "I can hardly wait" is a bit too strong/exaggerated. "I'm looking forward to" would be more accurate.

Is a new product or entertainment item (film, book, song etc) released that day? Will you go somewhere relevant on Dec 15th?

Will the benefit that Dec 15th brings to you continue past that day? Or only apply then?

Will you get any kind of financial benefit on dec 15th? will you experience a benefit directly? Will someone close to you experience a benefit?

Will something change about your status on Dec 15th? Will you be able to do something that you could not previously do? Will you stay at home that day? Is something going to be delivered to you? Will it mark a certain amount of time having passed since something? A certain amount of time until an event in the future?

Will the reason for your excitement happen instantly at midnight on the 14th/15th? At a specified time on the 15th? Generally throughout the 15th and beyond?

Is a physical object involved in why you are excited? Another person (other than the person who might also be looking forward to it)?

On Dec. 15th, something will change about your current computer? Will you be adding something to it? Or removing something from it? Or are you getting a new computer?

If you wanted, could you change the date to the 14th or the 16th? Something relevant about the 15th?

Is it relevant what type or brand of computer you use?

If you wanted, could you change the date to the 14th or the 16th? no, good question Something relevant about the 15th? no

Is it relevant what type or brand of computer you use? no, good question. The situation would still be the same if I used a different computer or even if I decided to buy a new computer before the 15th.

Happy early forum birthday Doriana kitteh.

December 15 is a day I usually do *not* look forward to, as it is the anniversary of my grandmother's death and so is usually a very sad day for me. But I shall be happy for whatever Doriana kitteh is looking forward to...and...hmm...


Is something *I* am looking forward to on December *14* at all relevant?

as a hint to the previous question, Is Tolkien relevant at all?

oh well then, for anyone who did not understand my irrelevant question - December 14 is the release date for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in the US. I was wondering if it was coming out on the 15th in Doriana Kitteh's current location. xD

Ah. Our youth group is watching all the LotR movies in order, and then going out to see The Hobbit. So Kaylee, you will be glad to hear that I am at last watching LotR. And can now comprehend more of your puzzle. The movies were excellent, though I started losing track of characters about halfway through.

This account:
Does it have a social aspect? Do you talk to other people via it?

Does it have to do with a particular interest of yours?

Is it an account for a website which allows you to do more on that website, eg post comments?

Is the account used primarily for entertainment? Work? Getting information? Is it connected to your job? Your studies?

Will something change about the website for which you have the account on Dec 15th? Is it actually connected to a website at all? Does it allow you to use a particular piece of software?

Could the puzzle statement also work with a ymsgr account?

15th of december: is something going to happen to the skype account? Or something in your or your boyfriend status, like a change of name, which would require an update of status?

(This take it cum grano salis, I don't remember exactly) : Is a new service being introduced which will make it easier to make calls between two different countries?

Could the puzzle statement also work with a ymsgr account? I've never used it, so I can't say for sure, but I think so. It depends on a certain little characteristic of the programme

15th of december: is something going to happen to the skype account? yope Or something in your or your boyfriend status, like a change of name, which would require an update of status? no

(This take it cum grano salis, I don't remember exactly) : Is a new service being introduced which will make it easier to make calls between two different countries? no

On Dec 15th, will you use skype at all? probably, but that's actually irrel Will your boyfriend? probably as well Will your use of skype in the future after that date be somehow better? this Easier? Cheaper? Better quality?

We're talking about a tiny detail here that most people probably wouldn't even care about. And, as a HINT, nothing will be introduced or added, but...

Since it's been a week since the last post, here's a HINT - If you happen to have skype, take a look at a written conversation and pay attention to details. This might also work for other messengers.

Was there an annoying communication with date December 14, 2011? and you're looking forward to the day when this communication is not shown any more? good idea, but no. OTRT though

Will everyone who uses Skype experience this change?

Is a particular skype conversation you have had in the past relevant? A written one? Video?

Was/is the change as good as you expected? :)

Relevant when you had the past conversation? Did a change occur then?

I've recently observed a change on Skype that amused me and gave me an insight into how a particular feature has been programmed. I've a suspicion it's relevant here but I'm not sure how yet. I'm holding off asking as if I'm wrong it'd make for a good puzzle itself... :P

RECAP

On December 15, a very small but relevant change occured in my skype account. My boyfriend and I were the only people experiencing this specific change, and a particular skype conversation that we had in the past is relevant.

HINT: Find out what happened during the relevant conversation.

Were you two the only people involved in it? Relevant why you weren't together at that point? Did one if you reveal some relevant information? Was a question asked? Did you plan something together? Did you argue?

Did something relevant happen during the conversation other than something said by you two? Was it a video call? Audio? Just messaging?

Relevant that you wrote instead of talking... Was something malfunctioning that disabled the facility to talk? Did you set something in the configuration of your client that prevented you from hearing / talking? Is it some default setting relevant? Any settings of the client relevant at all?

So to check: you were having a video call, ie could see each other, but could not hear each other, so were communicating via skype's instant text messaging. Correct?

Did you do a relevant action? Did you do something that your boyfriend did not understand? That you had to explain via text? Did you forget he couldn't hear you?

Were you planning a meeting? A trip? An event? To do something together? For one of you to do something without the other?

Other relevant settings - on your computer? Your boyfriend's computer? To do with sound? Video? Privacy? Appearance? Programs? Internet? Back-ups? Security? Anti-virus? Firewall?

Does skype think that the conversation is longer ago than it was so it is no longer visible?

Does skype now think it is a year ago that the conversation happened? Or does it think it happened this dec 15th? this. I think I'll put the pieces together now - great work, Enjay!! Here comes the

********SPOILER********
The other day, I was skyping with my boyfriend, but because of connection issues, we had to write instead of talk. During our conversation, I looked up what day of the week Dec 15 is, but I accidentally changed the date on my pc to that day.

The next message I sent him was timestamped "Dec 15" and therefore appeared at the very bottom of our conversation for the next months. I'm easily annoyed by such details, because I could hardly wait for Dec 15, when this message would just disappear into the "regular" conversation.

That would definitely have annoyed me too! I was getting confused thinking that your computer was still saying it was December 15th, and wondering why you couldn't just change it back, I understand now!

Ah yes, I knew there was some tiny detail missing, so it must have been that. Nice third solve today though! I have a new puzzle up already.

And I just noticed an error in the spoiler. The last sentence should of course read

I'm easily annoyed by such details, which is why I could hardly wait for Dec 15, when this message would just disappear into the "regular" conversation.

Note to self: Proofread.

Luckily the message wasn't anything embarrassing or important - just "ok (:"
