 Posted: Sun Nov 03, 2002 9:38 pm    Post subject: 41 I was thinking that if you can make up a 5x5 grid of letters, a to y, then you can use the numbers as coordinates on the grid. The hint seemed to be a good start on this, start in the centre and work outwards in a screw fashion but I can’t get it to work and I am not sure how to use the coordinates… Sigh, any thoughts?

I know it's not a clue to the puzzle, but you need more help with your lives than you do with the puzzle. Furthermore, I will not stand for TheOne's insults, and I formally challenge him to a duel. ------------------ TheOne shall pay for his crimes

Not sure how this would work, just an idea that popped into my head that has probably already been thought of. And what's wrong with my imaginary friend? ------------------ When suddenly, all the air molecules moved to the other side of the room!

Anyway, I reckon I've solved the numbers bit - If someone would let me know how to do the Invisible thing then I'll post a full solution... Until then, I'll just hint that there should be some more numbers on the end of those two rows - 2554 and 2352 [Making it 343423154343123551454551315432554, 322542442423442515542415244242352] Cheers, Rich.

 Posted: Tue Nov 05, 2002 3:10 pm    Post subject: 48 Ah, just read the FAQ... Okay, here goes... Taking the hint code:```DEF CAG BIH``` and expanding this to the whole alphabet (but dropping the Z), we get code:```OPQRS NDEFT MCAGU LBIHV KJYXW``` And then we just apply jadesmar's coordinate grouping system to read the letters off this grid, taking K to be (1,1) and S to be (5,5). So (3,3), (4,2), (3,2), (4,5), becomes AHIR, etc. The full message is AHIRDINTHEHANDISWORTHTWOINTHE --> "A hird in the hand is worth two in the" Either I'm missing something, or the second coordinate was mistakenly printed (the 'error' is with the original puzzle, not jadesmar's translation), and should be (2,2) - "A bird in the hand is worth two in the" Hence my initial post - We're missing a bush! Is that the final solution then?

I started looking at all of the puzzles then I clicked Four Ways and didn't understand what I was supposed to do, lol. I am not as smart as all of you but I read all your posts so I am going to keep coming back to the site. Hopefully I'll learn a lot in the process So are you all mathematicians or something? Wow, you're all geniuses. Just thought I'd point that out. ------------------ ..........................................*¤*.¸¸.·´¨`»*«´¨`·.¸¸ .*¤*.......................................... .................................*¤*.¸¸.·´¨`»* * Jessi * *«´¨`·.¸¸.*¤*................................. ..........................................*¤*.¸¸.·´¨`»*«´¨`·. ¸¸.*¤*..........................................
