    There wasn't anything in the newsletter I received. Could someone please cut and paste the explanation into this thread?

    His explanation was that some keys are harder to find. That's all

    I believe the keys on the end will remain the same so the further we get, the less keys there are to find and I also believe each chapter will have a missing key. I was just as pissed about the missing keys because I had the first 18 and thought I was wrong, but now I know the underlying mechanism from working on future chapters. He cannot reveal anything more or this hunt will be over very soon. Doc and Lobster I believe know what I'm talking about. Trust me Vincent, its not what you think it is. Ron is quite brilliant and I need to apologize for blasting him in some of my earlier posts.

    Actually I haven't got the foggiest idea.

    a) I remain under the assumption that each of the 12 solutions for the most part are unique and in some cases considerably different. While some elements may be similar across some chapters (which is why Ron can't publish solutions), I do not think it is possible to determine a solution or method just from prior solutions.

    b) I believe that J and Q are encoded in the Maxie version, and that instructions for their concealment are somewhere in the book. I suspect chapter 1 may provide inroads into their location. I don't at all understand the design decision behind making a relatively complicated solution to order 2 keys, which can be done brute-force in 2 submissions. But I'm over it; C2 is dead to me.

    Working on C3. Finding some interesting things. Some may be real, some might not. It doesn't really matter -- I'm enjoying the journey.

    Your final clue in 2013 for Chapter 3: The seventh number in the sequence can be found in the first sudoku for Chapter 3. The row, column and number are all the same.

    hopefully that was a typo and we don't have to wait until the end of 2013 for another clue.
