    Ok I had a friend make me a 'Slider Puzzle' on his Proto-type machine. I have been working on this for over 2 months! The problem I am having is what exactly to move and in what direction? It is driving me crazzzzzzzy!
    For example if you look at the first 'set' 10-2 or 0-2 what would you move?
    I have tried sliding the D over into the empty slot where Q was since it is the 2nd letter of the '0' row and then tried going from there. What for instance would be the next move and then the next, and so on???
    Any ideas would be appreciated!!!!!

    I have also tried replacing the letters and example would be - putting the 10-2 letter into the empty Q space and then putting the 4-6 letter into the empty space where the 10-2 letter was. The problem with that I found is that there are not enough 'moves' if you use each flower set as one x-y coordinate.

    photogypsy, thanks for explaining. I get it now. The phase "by removing the "Q" you would then make 10 colloms of 9" confused me. I still don't get that but I do understand your explaination of the slide puzzle. I'll work on it.

    Default Clue 3

    I'm sorry, but until the ATT administration posts that Clue 3 is actually solved, I think we should continue our efforts. We've all had "possible solves" that looked feasible. As of tonight, the official site does not show any changes. The clues are not like the tokens which get reported as missing, found, then solved. I think as soon Clue 3 is solved, it will be posted.
    Dreams really do come true!

    Not only that, but the "solve" just isn't all that convincing.

    (At least not to me)

    Just want to bounce an idea off everyone. The 10x10 grid isn't perfect. Some of the squares seem larger than others. Also some of the letters are centered and some are not. The "I's" seem to be left aligned as do most of the letters, some of the "U's" seem to be on the left and some in the center. Most likely these are accidental errors.
