    Default the 17 connection?

    wow, the boards have really died!

    ---

    here's something i've been looking at.
    we've all got stuck with the individual puzzles so how about combining several of them together.

    in particular a lot of the unsolved puzzles have 17 parts or pieces of data.

    page 48: wreaths - one side of each wreath has been used for the morse YOU CANT GET THERE FROM HERE. that leaves the other side unused and each one has 2 sets of 17 leaves some of which are lightened. at least 10 sets of 17 binary strings. 010010010000010010 etc...

    page 81: not sure about this one but there look to be 34=2*17 crosses on ana's dress in some sort of order and left or right.

    page 94: there are 17 berry sprigs on the left and 17 on the right.

    page 108: there are not only 17 darkened tiles but these are spread out over 34=17*2 gaps. (only counting from top tile down)

    ---
    you may want to add in the several 18s and 16s too?

    can anyone put any of these together?
    can anyone see any other 17s (or 34s)?

    also we have 17 good characters in the book, not counting the nameless fairies.

    Actually, there are 8 types and every other one is reversed. This led me to create an 8x8 ATT style and fill it in with A-Z, a-z, 0-9, + and / (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64). Unfortunately, the best I could come up with was zGEEktbjJmkPx0nj. Notice the GEEk... this book is heckling me.
