    I believe this one will go quickly after a couple of really helpful clues in September. It has to if Ron has hopes for a silver eagle hunt in October.

    Hopefully! I'm still hopeful someone will solve it before then.

    I just submitted my most promising sequence in months.... this one had a super-clever validator for the last sequence based on a set of in-book hints. Of course, I have imagined a great number of other clever validators in the past.

    Any speculation on when the next clue will be launched? Next Friday September 6th?

    Assuming there's no winner, I'd guess sometime over the next couple of weeks.

    How many chapters do you think will be won by NEXT summer?

    my guess would be three more chapters. He may start releasing clues to more than one chapter at a time! (This is just a guess, I haven't read this anywhere)

    Ron needs to advertise this more, okay we have seen the three winning videos on-line, but have any of these been seen on national TV, I know as a Brit, no they haven't.
    we also know he is struggling to sell the Golden Eagle, what is happening to the advertising?

    My opinion on Chapters won by next summer: chapter 4 (September 2013) and chapter 5 (May 2014). Entire hunt will take 12 years to final completion. Not sure if Ron anticipated sending out submission rejects for quite that long when he started this.
    Total number of submission rejects for Lobster when complete: 248,202.

    lol! Now there's a vote of confidence I do feel like my understanding of the book is growing very quickly at this point. Now that I have most of it effectively memorized, it's becoming a lot easier to draw connections between things and come to useful conclusions. The red herring stuff is still too difficult for me to work out without a clear definition of what a genuine herring is and what a herring's scope is (immediate modifier? sentence? paragraph? page?), but throwing out anything even potentially a herring (which is a large chunk of the book to me), some of the chapter stuff is coming together.

    I think I've got a general idea about how chapters 5 and 12 work. Also have starting points and ideas for many of the other chapters, along with a list of probable key hiding methods and ciphers used. It's working out which pieces go with which puzzle that is the really hard part.

    Lobster,
    I no doubt you will win one of those silver eagles.
