    Yes, i live in Chicagoland so Ive read up on that place quite a bit, and I've been to that park several times by now.

    the park I'm talking about is Burnham park in Chicago. Its where the coordinates lead you. The Adler Planetarium is on the north end of that park. And its actually exactly 3.14 miles north of where the coordinates lead us. Coincidentally, 314 are the last three numbers in the 'west' coordinates that lead you to Burnham Park. I then took the last three numbers from the 'north' coordinates (222) for Chicago, and went west 2.22 miles. It leads to another city park. I didnt find anything relevant there, but i thought it was interesting that the planetarium was 3.14 miles when the last numbers in the coordinates were actually 314.

    so i was suggesting maybe similar manipulation would work at the salt lake coordinates. maybe, maybe not.. but its worth a shot i guess.

    someone brought this to my attention so i should update this, so its correct.

    The planetarium is 2.22 miles (not 3.14 as previously indicated) north of the burnham park coordinates. 222 are the last 3 digits from the north coordinates.

    Well interestingly enough 3.14 is pi (actually it is approx. 3.14159). So now what do you do with that? Could letters PI or the numbers 3.14 or 159 come into play at the planetarium? Pi is also the 16th letter of the greek alphabet. It has a greek numerical value of 80.

    Hi ...Being new and all I have been struggling to play catch up but this bank post caught my eye. I too came up with a series of clues that led to set of 5 numbers and what I believe is a CITY (the word city popped out of my code unanagramed otherwise I would never have guessed this was a city name). When I did a zip code search. It came up as unique to of all things... a bank. Do all banks have unique zip codes?

    hmm.. i think most towns have there own zip code, except for the really small ones, which might share with another town. Some have multiple zipcodes. and most cities have several zip codes.

    Im curious as to how a zipcode could lead you to a bank, but thats interesting.

    It seems that a few people have come up with leads to banks. I think that MS did say the solution/treasures were locked away in a vault somewhere....

    This is in a suburb of a rather large city. This is why I didn't understand why the zip code would only come back for only a bank and not just a regular zip code. It also has the word unique listed by it. See why I thought it was so strange? Plus considering the use of 5 and 3 in this book. I also thought it ironic that is was a 5th 3rd bank.

    Wouldn't it be strange if all you had to do was go to the bank web page...enter in the id and then the password and magically your prize is unlocked? I won't be trying this anytime soon since I'm such a cowardly lion. Did Mr. Stadther ever create bank software?... who knows....then again maybe this is just a center for the search and you must extend it outward from here. Just thought I'd share.

    MS actually DID create banking software. Here's a bit from a New York Times article:

    Eventually, Mr. Stadther, a software engineer who sold his international banking software company in 1996, decided to publish the book himself
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!
