    Iambic pentametrically speaking, the hint has 10 feet.

    It has been a long time since I really looked at those dominoes that make up that "gate". The ones across the top are dominoes. But what are the other ones that go down along the sides? Are they dominoes? Or are they braille? Or what else? What kind of counts do you get for the ones down the sides? It almost looks like there are three on one side, but four on the other.

    Some other thoughts...There are two misspelled words are this page...stead should be steed, and reigns should be reins. So we have an A that should be an E, and we have an extra G. Significant? Or just a simple spelling error?

    Has anyone made any sense out of the "math" problems? I believe one of Domino's non-book hints was drawing our attention to this particular puzzle.

    The braille-like things on the gate pillars can be segmented into 4 3x2 on each side. or 12 x2 total pips on each side. I have tried all sorts of braille on this and nothing seems to even make letters. There is also some kind of code called EBDIC which is like a 6 bit binary code that could have been used to make letters and things. This too, has been elusive to me. Looks like a repeating character on the top left if they are 3x2 segments.

    I did some work on that with no result. D knew we'd try all that...so what could be the secret?

    An arch of pips....

    This chapter, in addition to the fancy gate, has what appears to be a set of four mathematical equations overlayed on a graphic of four quadrant maps of the USA, with targets drawn over non-descript cities in each quadrant.

    Here is another puzzle with lots of stuff going on. Not sure if it is even relevant or a red herring. Some have tried straight math processes and yielded a set of four peculiar numbers, some of which held some meaning. Others have tried to convert the numbers to a factor or two categorized in mendeleev's creation. No idea how the numbers and math relate to the background graphics or if the cities targeted are even important to determine.

    Usually puzzles in this book have a match somewhere else in the book or at least text to help decipher and get a start at solving the puzzle...

    this one, I am afraid, is laughing very loudly right now...

    Yes, I remember one of the extra hints about this page. It hinted at getting closer than the state. But there could be more to it than that.

    I think that was alluding to the gate puzzle, which at least got you into the right county

    hmmm... so you're saying you have "solves" stvwz? Watch out, the thousands of Lurkers to this forum [sic] will be ALL over you for your possible "solutions" (WINK)

    Maybe. Or wrong. Or left. Or middle.
