In the Book In the Movie
   Divya finds the Winklevoss twins at the library to tell them about Mark and facemash.com. They are in the dinning hall eating together when he tells them.
   Mark sneaks into the houses he can't access via the internet. He attaches to the local network and takes the pictures from their facebooks. He just gets them all from the internet.
   3 days after he created facemash.com Mark realizes that it is getting a lot of traffic. He is using his own laptop as a server and it is frozen. He shuts it down. He finishes the website that very night and watches the traffic stats on his machine. Eduardo is there and is afraid they will get in trouble. Suddenly the screen goes black and the network is shut down.
   Eduardo meets Mark at the Jewish fraternity house they are both part of. This isn't mentioned. Mark and Eduardo are already friends.
   After Mark finishes facemash.com he emails it to a few friends to get their impression. He has no intention of it going viral. Mark and his roommates intend to send it out to everyone so they can all see it.
