    Default Interactive Scratch Pad for New Clue #3

    Hi all,

    I threw together an Interactive Scratch Pad for Clue #3 that you might find helpful. It's good for keeping track of the various approaches you've tried, or just for noodling around and trying new stuff. Plus you can save a little paper while doing it.

    I've posted it online at http://www.buzzcool.com/rdix/clue3.html You just use it in your web browser.

    I'm calling it "solveware". If it helps you solve the clue, you have to post the solution here for everyone to see!

    If you have any suggestions about things to add to this, or if you find any problems with it, please reply in this thread or PM me. I don't have much time to spend on this, but I'll help if I can.

    Thanks,
    rdix

    rdix,

    This is undoubtably the tool which will crack the clue! Thanks!

    More and more of my "wonderings" include coming up with a rearrangment of the letters in the 10x10 grid. Would it possible to create a revision that allows the user to type new letters into the grid?

    Thanks again,

    korg

    Help, When I go to the cool buzz link, all I get is the directions now. I checked it out a week ago and wanted to mess with it again. Please, what am I doing wrong.

    Thanks -

    Wow.

    The only thing I would add is the ability to draw on the thing itself.
    That would be very cool!

    Default thinking out loud

    Using the great tool I began to notice something interesting about the petals. There are only 5 colors. And it appears very hard to get pairs. Therefore what if the solution lies in the colors as they appear in a rainbow...

    Red...Orange...Yellow...Green...Blue...Indigo...Vi olet


    From here you can break down pairs as to where they lie.

    Again just thinking out loud.
    Endeavor to persevere."

    squid: was just reading over your post and noticed the occurance of the colors would be ROYBGIV which would be:

    Red-Orange-Yellow-Blue-Green-Indigo-and Violet. I think you have the blue and green switched in order. And, was wondering if you did anything with your theory? Thanks. Green we could eliminate since it would take the place of 0 on a grid, and Indigo is not present. That leaves the 5 colors. Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Violet.
    Dreams really do come true!

    Just from looking at the source:

    Code:
    // Globals
    // Major version of Flash required
    var requiredMajorVersion = 7;
    // Minor version of Flash required
    var requiredMinorVersion = 0;
    // Revision of Flash required
    var requiredRevision = 0;
    // the version of javascript supported
    var jsVersion = 1.0;
    You going to need a Flash and Java enabled browser. Check your internet setting to allow java and make sure flash is installed. Maybe rdix can offer more help when he sees this.
