Oh, yeah, this is just beautiful.  All I can do is look at it and say "huh"?

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 02:51 PM:

Apparently, no one else is working on this right now.  Argh!!  And yes, I be speakin' right piratey, matey!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 02:55 PM:

Okay, now that I've stared CLOSELY at the screen, I get it!!!  Duh!

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 02:57 PM:

It seems that this is not the contest for me...

I am still stuck on 8c...

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 02:59 PM:

LOL - okay - what I found was the answer to 16! Because it says I am now on level 17!!!  Speaking of WTH?!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 03:01 PM:

Fluffy!!!!!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 03:05 PM:

Fluffy - you SO had the right idea - you just needed to note that the hyphen connected some of what you were deciphering.  I pm'd you, too.

# Zach said on November 28, 2007 03:27 PM:

Fluffy, look at yesterdays post about lvl 8c, I put a link for you

# Zach said on November 28, 2007 03:28 PM:

For those of you who went from lvl 16 to 17, or are on lvl 16, go back to the link given at the end of lvl 10 and refresh. I made a booboo posting...

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 03:34 PM:

okay - cause 11 changed on me

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 03:37 PM:

on 11... yikes.

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 03:40 PM:

heck if I could jump to 17, I'd stay there & move on LOL

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 03:41 PM:

fluffy - morewords is a big help!

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 03:43 PM:

beat my head on a wall for 12

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 04:05 PM:

ummm...     .htm???  I have plenty of possibilities, just not sure how to enter it...

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:09 PM:

Hey, Fluffer Nutter - just sent you a PM!

And why aren't you in chat with us????????

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 04:10 PM:

*sigh*

I guess I need to run whatever it says I need to run to get into chat...

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 04:13 PM:

ok, i give up... chat where?

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 04:15 PM:

on 12

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:18 PM:

Fluffy.......where are you.......come back to chat....

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:18 PM:

You were there, come back to the steeplemedia chat, and I'll get you to the right spot!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:30 PM:

Just reread the top...Quitters?   Excuse me????

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:34 PM:

I'll give you "quit", mister!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:34 PM:

By the way, for those who are working on 11, there are at least two different words that fit the criteria.  

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:35 PM:

And for 12, hmmmm...what is that blurry spot in the picture?????

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:41 PM:

But no clue at all what to do with this...anyone?

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 04:50 PM:

Come on guys!!!!

# Zach said on November 28, 2007 05:27 PM:

If you are on 12, and trying to read the blurry stuff at the bottom, I didnt save it clear enuf for you to see that it says "put it backwards"

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 05:36 PM:

Ah, but "what"?  There's the rub!!!

# Zach said on November 28, 2007 06:10 PM:

the letters you get after figuring out what you are supposed to do :D

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 06:21 PM:

Help on 7!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 06:23 PM:

Okay - major nudge here guys....

In your source, it tells you that 8= something.  That is the one exception to everything else.   Count up what you have, take the first letter of the #, put it with the actual letter you are counting.

after you are done, the backwards part!

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 06:26 PM:

Will anyone tell me what to do after wading through 7a, b,c, and d?

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 06:28 PM:

Is anyone here?

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 06:35 PM:

Please, what do I do after I get the AR?

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 06:42 PM:

I'm in chat...

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 07:02 PM:

I can't make chat work - something with my network settings & ports - 13, dang, I know what it is, but every posible way to name it isn't right

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 07:08 PM:

Where are you fluffy? I am at 8 a.

I can't chat, security settings wont allow it.

# soccer ref said on November 28, 2007 07:28 PM:

vanfullof10 - you know how Western Union used to send messages?  You have to convert that to words.

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 07:35 PM:

No, what is western union? You mean morse?

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 07:41 PM:

any hints on 15?

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 08:16 PM:

stuck on 15 too

Yes van...

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 09:14 PM:

Anyone in here?

# Fluffy Cow said on November 28, 2007 09:18 PM:

ok, just checking before I go.

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 09:22 PM:

I'm here, but looks like I am throwing in the towel

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 10:21 PM:

Oh, redhatty, don't throw in the towl!!

Send me a PM and let me know where you're at, I'll help!

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 10:36 PM:

I did scoutmom - I'm totally stuck at 15

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 10:37 PM:

I just pm'd you redhatty!

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 10:46 PM:

I need help in 8c

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 10:51 PM:

pm'd ya back scoutmom :)  this one is making me dizzy!

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 10:58 PM:

Sent you something else, now it's bedtime for me!

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 10:59 PM:

I solved the code...what do I do with the numbers? the sudoku...?

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 11:00 PM:

Hi, vanfull!

For some reason, the chart on wiki where you can look things up is missing from their entry.  Hope Zach won't mind, but here it is:

Digit (L) code (R) code

0 0001101 1110010

1 0011001 1100110

2 0010011 1101100

3 0111101 1000010

4 0100011 1011100

5 0110001 1001110

6 0101111 1010000

7 0111011 1000100

8 0110111 1001000

9 0001011 1110100

But follow the clues to know which way to go with this.

# scoutmom said on November 28, 2007 11:02 PM:

Oh, for 8c? - no, once you have the numbers, you will change them to something else.  Don't miss the hyphen - those aren't all single digits!

What can you change a number into?  It's as easy as 1-2-3, A-B-C...

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 11:02 PM:

Scoutmom...hint please? 8c

# vanfullof10 said on November 28, 2007 11:04 PM:

Thanks!

# Redhatty said on November 28, 2007 11:05 PM:

finally - got it!  Thanks for the nudge scoutmom!

# Redhatty said on November 29, 2007 12:04 AM:

Hey Zack!!!  You need to take my name off the "quitters" list!  I sent you in the word, so I know I finished todays - it was a bit more challenging, especially that japanese stuff!

# winnie said on November 29, 2007 06:49 AM:

AM not  AM not   I turned my word in yesterday afternoon   and you  keep calling me a quitter  I'll turn in a few  more words   lol     Just got home from work  I'll  get to yesterday soon as i can

# scoutmom said on November 29, 2007 08:21 AM:

Anyone else need a nudge with anything up to this point, 1-15?  Give a holler!

# scoutmom said on November 29, 2007 08:22 AM:

Hey, what time can we expect to see today's release?

# gplash1958 said on November 29, 2007 08:31 AM:

nvm i got 14

# scoutmom said on November 29, 2007 09:16 AM:

Thanks, Zach, for removing the word "quitter" and replacing it with something much better!

# soccer ref said on November 29, 2007 11:41 AM:

I, for one, think the results should be posted on the NEXT DAY's blog...not going back and editing the previous day's. After all...don't we have beyond midnight to solve them??  If someone hadn't mentioned the "quitters" thing to me I never would have even looked at this blog entry again. Would have been looking for the leaderboard on the next puzzle blog.  Is it just me?????

# scoutmom said on November 29, 2007 12:19 PM:

I feel the same way about the results.  Here's today's - here's the leaders so far!

# vanfullof10 said on November 29, 2007 04:43 PM:

Help on 11!
