Enormous thanks Jamyphx.
You are my savior.
It was the last question where I was locked.
Still thanks.
First, let me say that all of the people who have reached the 240 club and have been posting here are great. Although I haven't found all of the answers I seek as of yet, it helps to know that there is a community willing to help.
Anyway, that being said. The problem I have found is that there is too much PM'ing and not enough "real" clues to help anyone new to the site. While I can appreciate that nobody wants to give away the answers directly, having a post that says look at the other posts for clues, doesn't seem to be helping...lol...So at this point, I guess I have to just ask questions and hope there are still people out there willing to help given that most of the 240's have been there for several months.
That being said, I am only stuck on the password for this chapter. I have deciphered the 3 parts, but not the numbers and am wondering if thats what I am missing to get the password. Can anyone steer me in the right direction please?
Help! Please?? Pretty please? With sugar??? And spice??and everything nice??
Well maybe if a stranger was to ask from say the State of Pennsylvania very nicely, you could find it in your wonderful Canadian heart to help him out ;) I am having trouble with these blasted numbers too. Just picked up hunt again recently.
Jamyphx --- So glad you were able to solve this at last! Congrats to you and those who have figured out this bizarre puzzle.
I am wondering would you be, or any others, be willing to PM me with a nudge in the right direction? I have tried much of what you have described, alas these numbers are driving me mad!!
I feel that I'm on the right path, continuing on with the Poe story where the previous section left off, but still the vast range in value of the 238 numbers leaves me scratching my head trying to figure out how to get these to letters with a formula/strategy that makes sense.
Any help that others could give me on my quest to finish Chapter 9 would be most appreciated! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
"Now" .... (hint) continue with the story. After that is done ... next clue "What's up Doc!" You should start seeing a pattern immediately. If not, PM me and I will guide you in the right direction, but these clues are all you need.
Hi all,
I understand the mechanism of the number part of the poem (and boy is that tricky), but I get stuck 26 letters in and I can't figure out where I'm going wrong. Specifically, I'm fine with the first two lines of numbers:
17, 33, 24, 13, 26, 10, 29, 13, 24, 18, 21, 13, 38
28, 30, 15, 23, 21, 24, 17, 23, 38, 14, 21, 12
But then this next set translates into jibberish when I continue the method:
18, 33, 39, 45, 9, 36, 6, 21, 33, 10, 29, 26, 24
I keep checking my work but I can't figure out my mistake. Does something change at this point? I've even tried assuming that things change and have tried adjusting the numbers (and/or my key) accordingly, but I can't yield any results. Can anyone please help me?
With gratitude,
calvin
You are missing a number...
