    Default Where'd you all go????

    Come on you guys, why have you (most of you) given up?? Theres thousands of prizes still left to be claimed. That house isnt going to be won soon, so anyone can catch up! I think I found a group of people who are interested in the book, and so they will get to work on it too. I hope some of you will get back into this! I was out for a couple months, but am now back in because of the lack of other treasure hunts going on. Everyone has a great chance at that house!!!

    Mark,
    I'm still in this! I am working on #7 still and am going round and round! I have found a couple of unusual things, but can't get them to work over the whole puzzle. I'm thinking more than one pattern. I've tried so many things I think I'm seeing double!
    I did put it away for 2 days and came back to it with new ideas, so maybe soon! (In my dreams!)
    The choices we make today will dictate the lives we lead tomorrow.

    Keep your eye on the prize.

    Well, to be brutally honest, it got pretty boring pretty quickly, and the hope of any additional cash prizes beyond #5 anytime soon is not promising, so I took my $40 bucks or whatever it was for the first 5 minus cost and called it. For me it seemed like too much trial and error for my taste. I am probably wrong about that, and there is some elegant logical theme that leads from one puzzle to the next, but I haven't got the desire or energy.

    Looking forward to September I guess!

    Hi Mark and everyone!
    For me it became an issue of time. With spring here and summer approaching, I seem to have a lack of time to get everything done. LOL
    I enjoyed the first 6 but 7 will take a while and I just don't have the time.
    Good luck to all who are still in it and I might find time later to catch up.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.

    You all know where I went - this simply wasn't worth working on under Ken's conditions (see the thread elsewhere), and I wasn't interested in working on it outside of Ken's conditions because I've been pretty busy the last couple of months.

    I'm still in - though time is limited due to working and family. I zipped through the first 4 3/4 puzzles fairly quickly. My problems have been (1) typing into excel without errors (even though I have the solve) and (2) the last 8 lines in puzzle #5. They don't seem to follow the patterns the first 24 did. I'll pick it back up after vacation - see you all in a couple weeks.
