    Anyone going to the LA event tomorrow? I'm only 2-3 hours away so it's looking like I'll be able to head up there and join in the fun watching Heather win her eagle. I'll take lots of pictures.

    thanks Lobster, I am sure we will all enjoy looking at them and they will inspire us to work on the hunt!

    Let me start this comment by saying I have no reason to believe this is the case. But, I would feel remiss if I did not mention a disturbing possibility in relation to the latest news the TWGTH has been the victim of a hacking attack. If you have used a credit card to purchase a book via TWGTH website, a possibility does exist that the information has been compromised. As a person who has endured 2 incidents in which false merchants have taken money from my bank account, I would caution you to keep a close eye on your transactions. I would assume that Ron would disclose if this were the case and he knew it, but he may not even know what information has been taken.

    I received one spam email as a result of this attack at my home email address. But, as I have 2 books, I have 2 registrations and my work email is associated with the other book. Our filter at work detected malicious code in the email that the hacker attempted to send to that address and blocked it. Do not click on the link in the spam email. I do not mean to be alarmist, but it is just as well to be alert.

    I got that email as well--my virus protection didn't pick it up, but I knew better than to click that link.

    Well it was a fun day in LA. I mainly hung out with Roger, Gisela, and Ben (Heather's husband) as we followed along with the hunt. Roger and Gisela did a lot of work helping to put it together and they did a great job. I even got to give out one of the clues at one of the locations, which was fun. I met up as they went down hollywood blvd (getting info from the stars on the sidewalk), then through a wax museum, through a few other areas, a stop at the hollywood bowl, and then ended at the LA observatory. I got to hold the silver eagle too -- it's as impressive and as real as it sounds... a heavy sucker that Heather almost dropped when first awarded it. A few ciphers were involved, some anagrams *shudder*, and a cryptex, but nothing that would trouble anyone familiar with the book.

    In any case, I'm pretty much set on winning one now. Before I didn't really care about prizes, but I need one of those silver eagles on my mantle now

    Well I managed to inspire Lady Lobster to get back in the hunt, so team Lobster is back at full strength now

    Have got many theories for C4 -- will need some FB clues to get specific enough to start submitting solutions I think, but there are a number of interesting things in this chapter.

    A new clue comes out and not a bit of discussion. Well, that's allright because this time I truely believe I have solved Chapter 4. Friday's clue was the confirmer and I was able to do it with no Facebook clues, if it is indeed correct. If my solution is wrong, then it is the best laid red herring in any puzzle I have ever done.

    Loving this puzzle so far. By far the most interesting chapter yet, for a number of reasons.
    Things seem to get a little complicated and ambiguous at the halfway point of my sequence though.

    Lobster, if you are falling apart at the halfway point, I believe I have probably tried the same sequence you may be on to. (Obviously I can't confirm that without knowing where you went but I got to the same point with some simple observations.) Sadly they were wrong But...not the only anomaly I have found in the chapter though, so back to plugging away. At least with the new clue, I have found some new directions to try so back at the grind.

    I have picked this hunt back up. Looking at the other solves...chapter 1, I can logically understand ......2 and 3 I would never have worked out so if they are getting harder I probably have no chance.
    Still I've got a few ideas but there are so many permutations it will take ages to submit them all. I was hoping there would be some sort of 'confirmer' but haven't come across one yet. I may have found a red herring but who knows lol
