Elf's Objective Message

Woo! I'm Chimney Scissorsticks, and I'm having a great time up here!

I've been hanging out with all these NetWars players and not worrying about what's going on next door. In fact, I've really been having fun playing with this Holiday Hero terminal. You can use it to generate some jamming holiday tunes that help power Santa’s sleigh! It's more fun to play with a friend but I've also heard there's a clever way to enable single player mode. Single player mode? I heard it can be enabled by fiddling with two client-side values, one of which is passed to the server. It's so much more fun and easier with a friend though! Either way, we'd really appreciate your help getting the sleigh all fueled up. Then I can get back to thinking about shellcode...
