    Default Noticed something today...

    Decided to wear my glasses and happened to see a tap-code around the picture of Benjamin Franklin. Should be: Don't lose your mind!

    Interesting - does it mean anything, do you think?

    Probably has to do with Ch 13 1/2.

    Why didn't they tell us 12 months ago about the errors. I wasted so much time on many of those "errors" it's not funny particularly when one of the important clues deals with finding things that "don't belong". I'm so mad right now you have no idea.

    Likewise, I am very frustrated right now at the errors. It's not even that errors exist -- errors happen. That's part of life : it's that it took them so long to notice the errors and tell us.

    LadyLobster and I spent months following up sloppy editorial errors (PoTC, rogue hyphens, THD, spaces, formatting, FAQ WHICH STILL ISNT FIXED, HOLD vs HOLDS, Mel website clue, email clues not being sent out, etc etc etc etc etc etc) which should have been reported to us over a year ago. All of these "errors" LOOKED like clues, because they were so obviously out of place. Turns out these were obvious errors.

    I actually had a whole rant written out about the major problems with this hunt, but decided not to post it, because the goals of this hunt are so well intentioned.

    I'll be diplomatic for now, and just say that I am very upset with how sloppy the editing in this book is, and how the lack of timely notifications of errors has resulted in us spending massive amounts of time trying to find clues and relationships in ERRORS that should have been caught YEARS ago. I have given up this hunt for now, as I don't currently have any confidence that the solutions for the key sequences are error-free or unique.

    I tried to post the corrections a couple of days ago, but I guess I'm still too new getting around here. I'm still working on the questions so I haven't pursued errors (intentional or otherwise) as yet.
