Help Professor Crapschmidt solve his Master Equation

Welcome to the Crapschmidt Conundrum, a cerebrum-crunching Woot-Off trivia game with crappy rewards! Follow along here to play, and keep an eye on new items as they appear. You don't need math skill to play -- only need a calculator, a search engine, and competitive/masochistic streak! 

Professor Basil P. Crapschmidt is on the verge of an intellectual breakthrough. After years of painstaking study, he has determined that the universe can be explained by the numbers found in random bits of trivia. His only problem: He can't do math.

Help this visionary but arithmetically challenged scholar complete his Master Equation and you shall be crappily rewarded!

  • Comprised of an accessory and a free app, the L5 Universal Remote transforms the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a personal universal remote that controls televisions, DVD players, DVRs, cable boxes, audio equipment, and most other products that come with an infrared remote
  • Simply download the free L5 Remote app from the iTunes App Store
  • A coffee table full of remotes on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • Program your remotes by transferring signals "nose-to-nose" from the original remote, or download by selecting from the library of devices
  • If you press the same button sequence repeatedly, let your remote do it for you. Make a macro in seconds, and save time whenever you use it
  • Each activity starts with a setup sequence, and displays only the buttons you need for that activity. The control you want for whatever you want
  • Why try to remember a bunch of numbers when you can go directly to the station you want? Pick your favorite stations, and visit with one touch
  • Make as many remotes as you want, and organize them the way you want to, by rooms, devices, or themes. Design a remote for the living room and another for the bedroom. One for the adults, one of the kids, and one for Aunt Liz
  • Select buttons, labels, and pre-designed panels from the toolbox, and drag them to the grid. Arrange the remote any way you want, and refine as much as you want too. Use drawers to save space, and icons to make everything clear at a glance
  • Use the tools to pick the size, shape, icons, labels, and colors you want. If you don't need a button, you can delete it. Upload custom icons and background graphics
  • Your remote, like your computer, is a lot more useful when it's connected to the web. Upload and download remotes, icons and backgrounds. View the online database, or trade with the community via the L5 cloud
  • Just created a remote? Upload it for others to use. Need a remote? Download it a fully functional remote in seconds. Share your creation with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email
  • Upload your remotes to the L5 Cloud so you're protected in case you upgrade, damage or lose your iOS device
  • Create your remotes once, and everyone in the house can download a copy. You can have a copy on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
  • Choose from a growing collection of skins, like clothes for your remote. Use skins to add variety, or to easily identify different remotes
  • Holds up to 100,000 buttons; Indexes up to 1000 remotes
