Excuse me, but may I ask you why? Is it for gratifying others' curiosity, or for something else? One might have found the banner by accident (though the chance is pretty low), or more likely, one may not want to share the <knack>. Consider that <some members> have claimed their prize quite often, more than twice. They must have their own know-how.

Dec-14-07  mack: This is pretty disappointing. I was convinced that the clue had something to do with 'omni' - i.e. the 'proof' that 2=1:

x = 1

x = x

x - 1 = x -1

(x - 1)(x + 1) = x - 1

x + 1 = 1

2 = 1

I then remembered that it was Omni magazine which sponsored Levy's famous bet that no computer could beat him in a match. So I assumed that the answer was one of his Deep Thought defeats.

My answer is clearly much better.
