    The whole thing starts with T. Everything starts with T?

    Starts with T before Playfair, or after Playfair, or after a different operation then Playfair. Etc, etc.....

    Maybe not *everything*, just the *whole* thing. (The thing with a whole?)

    As a lurker, i didn't understand the earlier hint which ended in "TDY" -- was that the start of the whole sequence?

    Quick list of the recent hints:
    Feb.15: Don’t make this so difficult. TDY
    Feb.22: "Waxing eloquent" is a must to solve this one.
    Mar.01: The whole thing starts with "T"

    And now: "Victorious people not only work harder they have to continue on"
    Priceless and informative.

    I think I'm close, have sort of put most of the pieces together. It just takes one tiny thing off though to make you completely wrong.

    The flow of that sentence feels strained to me, like it's a mnemonic device for remembering a list. Otherwise they could have just said, "Winners not only work harder but must keep going."

    Mar.08: Victorious People Not Only Work Harder but have to continue on.

    Too bad the initial letters H and O are in there twice. Maybe that's a clue, too?

    I think the newest clue is just directions on where to look for the "originally intended" solution clues for the chapter.

    Of course, even when you know what pieces of text are c6 clues, trying to convert those English sentences into mathematical and algorithmic operations is effectively impossible.

    TDY = Today as in "Today's the Day"

    Sequence starts with T and the capital letters in the last clue may be a partial sequence.

    This is based on nothing but this thread. Have never looked at a clue. Only keep looking here to see if he's been arrested regarding the theft or for fraud.

    All this just to say - don't overthink it. This is the last eagle and ounce per ounce Bitcoin is worth more. It's been a LOOOONG TIME since he had a winner. My guess is that the clues at this point are really obvious.

    TDY is a military term for temporary duty... we have seen Ron use military terms before (remember 'No Duff' ?). Also, the first letters of the last clue were not capitalized like catherwood wrote them, so avoid that rabbit hole.

    I think last clue suggests we need to keep using text past the part where Mel finds the treasure (where he is victorious). May tie in with the clue about getting to the end of the lollipop and then keep on going... when the encrypted poem ends, the encryption continues to reveal the chapter's password so maybe we are to include those letters too?

    My apologies for muddying the waters above. The inital caps were indeed mine. Member kazoo above has a good take on its possible interpretation.
    Mar.08: Victorious people not only work harder but have to continue on.

    The extra clues are posted at https://www.facebook.com/GreatHunt?sk=wall and are viewable without a Facebook login (after dismissing the nag prompt box and scrolling a bit).
