    Default What a disappointment Michael Stadther has been.

    I always gave MS the benefit of doubt in believing when everything was over, MS would release the solutions.

    He hasnít!

    It was all about money, wasnít it Michael Stadther?
    You put in your BK claim and received 50% proceeds on the sale of the rings Ė and you leave everyone else hanging.
    The rise and fall of Michael Stadther Ė LMAO!

    You are truly an evil person, Michael Stadther.

    I guess I've been frustrated by many of the puzzles in ATT. Not so much DAR because I just didn't dive into it the way I got swallowed up by ATT. Too many questions were still unanswered when DAR came out for me to get much interested in it.

    Clues 3 and 4 were never officially solved. I think there was more to Clue 2 than was ever let on. And how did Zac know he would find Ana "before noon tomorrow"?

    The tokens that were discovered depicted the characters in the book, not their lost loved ones. You can tell by the difference in clothing worn by the Snails, for example. Mr. Snail wore a bandana, and Mrs. Snail did not, yet the token clearly had a bandana. I can let that go, but I'd at least like an official statement that it was a mistake. An unintentional red-herring, that is.

    So many Q's left unanswered that I fear I'll never rest easy, thinking about it, if I live to be 100 (just turned 50 Valentine's Day). Many pages in the book contained possible puzzles to be solved that never figured in the official solutions. All that work on pp 20/21, just to hide the red segments? You could encode an encyclopedia of data in all those knots. Plenty of possibilities in the outer two large parts of each knot to contain a whole other message. If I was a millionaire I'd bribe Stadther with whatever it took to tell me everything. Just to make me whole again before I die. If 8 devoted hours counts as a day, I've spent 2 years of my life on ATT. I don't fool around when I try. I just had an award dinner for my 3rd patent last night:

    Not to beat my own drum, but usually when I work on something to the exclusion of everything else in my life, there's something to show for it at the end. Instead, I ALMOST got to the butterfly before that lady in Winston-Salem did, and I ALMOST won the Snail on Ebay (lost by apparently less than a minute on the 'buy it now' option). In was 2 o'clock in the morning, and I didn't want to wake the boss to get her permission. Finally, I said 'screw it, let's do it!' and pushed the buy-it-now button, but then it came up "Sorry, Item Sold". The Snail has "JE POSE" inscribed on it. On the Snail page, Ana is depicted with her arms outstretched (by the orcs, in the story), but it looks like she is poised, or posing. But I digress.

    When I work this hard I usually win the prize, or the lady who became my wife, or something. All I've done is cut years off my expected lifespan from lack of sleep, poor nutrition, manic attention to one objective---ATT. In the end, the pure puzzlyness of the whole book did me in----I was never able to focus on a single page and ignore all else. I wound up buying 8 copies of the book, the last one being the only copy in readable condition. Hi, Renart and Spiggan, old friends!!

    The Treasure Trove was forced into bankruptcy.
    That was back in 07/27/2007.

    The rings have been sold off through the bankruptcy court.
    That was on 09/16/2009.

    All the rings were sold for $400,000 dollars.
    And MS got his percentage of the proceeds.

    Anyone that would've solved the puzzle (past), or solve the puzzle (present): gets nothing.

    My opinion about MS stands!

    Default Not sure where to post this.

    Has anyone seen the new Coke commercial with the insects? YouTube - Coca Cola "Heist" Super Bowl commercial This commercial so reminded of a Treasure Trove. Just thought it was neat. Could it be a hint of something? lol (Let the conspiraces begin) J

    I think that commercial aired during last years superbowl. There was lots of discussion about it- not sure if it was here or on the back up site. Too funny-although it does have all the insects-even the rhino beetle and the dandelions. I know for awhile, we were trying to figure out what was on the guys shirt...still not sure. silly

    Looking closely at his shirt: it looks like one of those inkblots. It looks like a butterfly to me......lol
