    I'm curious - for those who figured out the final password that unlocks question 1, was there anyone who didn't guess the password, but was able to crack the number system/cipherand then figure out the password from there?

    It seems like everyone who posted that they figured out the password actually guessed it and then backtracked to work out the code.

    Thx,
    Steve

    With a few nudges, I was able to decipher the whole thing without backtracking... but it wasn't an obvious process for me -- though the hints were all there.

    Deciphered all (some painful), and came up with the letters to solve the password, just needed a nudge to limit the endless possibilities on the last half.

    If you guessed the 2nd half of that password - kudos to you !!!

    I too deciphered the numbers, then spent alot of time working on figuring out the password from there.

    OK, so I've finally knocked this one out, and it's one of those "kicking myself" situations, for reasons I won't get into that have to do with why I had so much trouble getting the first line of the password. Now I can on move on to being frustrated by something else...

    Hi guys,

    That one is really tricky, almost everyone has solved everything but the password still remains unsolved.
    Could we get some clues in order to just understand what we are expecting to do at this point?

    Thanks for all.

    Not sure which question/part of the poem you are stuck on.... maybe a more specific question?

    I was talking about the password to find. Obviuosly for the first time we don't discover it directly hidden in the poem. We have to do something else.
    Some i guess the second part of the password is tricky and i still don't get what they want. Could i and we have some clues?

    Newone,

    there is alot of information in the various posts here, you should read up on some of it.

    The answer to your question: a request for a clue for finding the password, after decoding the numbers, is already here
