Removed Extreme tracking again after the unique people per day was confirmed. Finally added the Daily Puzzle, a long time after meaning to. Modified a number of pages at Hostek's request, including the game loader.

March 2003

Removed the newsletter as the Daily Puzzle effectively replaces it. Removed BSQ (1 year), Wheresat (2 years) and Wheresat2? (3 months) due to lack of time - kept Wassat? and Common Answers.
