Power Movies

The question I have: I have 144 found power movies, missed 85 for a total of 229. Under your current skill it says, undetermined because you haven't looked at at least 100 power movies. It says I have looked at 68. Sometimes the number goes up and down for no apparent reason. So what's up?

But I clearly see the little half circle you are talking about. And I remember submitting it because it was in focus when the cursor...

White Spots

I'm sure that everyone has seen them. The white spots that sometimes appear so bright, almost like a flare, and focus into a small point. I've been ignoring them until the last couple of days, I've submitted two so far. Has anyone figured out what they are?

Java Script Error Message

Occasionally I've recieved a Java script message: Image failed to load.
