  1. pretty stuck on the Time of Madness. think it's pretty tough and could use some group think. and the witching hour is fast approaching. so, re Y-san's post above: -- Help -- come get me.
  2. have now found the six highscorers and see what they're about but have no idea what they mean. EDIT: oops, just checked and see you've found the ciphertext ?. don't know. perhaps you're further along than I? the first four letters in your spoiler do seem to recur and think they will play a significant roll. I'm just not there yet.
  3. okay - finally been where our good friend Wilson's been...almost two weeks ago. still haven't quite made out the key from the equations but am familiar with that ole chiffre. cheers, Y-san!
  4. assuming a square bottom maximizes volume (which is pretty arbitrary but my calculus is too rusty to deal with two variables): V = x * x * ((32-x^2)/4x) V = x^2(8/x-x/4) V = 8x-(x^3)/4 then differentiating and equating to zero to maximize V: 8-3/4x^2 = 0 x = (32/3)^.5 x = 3.266 V = 17.419 the above spoiler was attempting to describe a open rectangular parallelepiped with a square base of length sqrt(32/3) and height of sqrt(8/3). such a mold would have surface area of 32 sq units and volume of 17.4186 cubic units.
  5. Always enjoy yours plasmid. This one's certainly no exception. After over 100 views have to at least give it a stab.
  6. hey Y-san - not sure though have seen similar elsewhere. Tried to replicate but perhaps you can post an example of the dialogue box output v input in [ code ]? What browser are you using? Are you typing out your own tags? Use " instead of '? Probably a deeper programming/mismatched character set issue. But haven't really got a clue. Except I do know I enjoy your post layouts so hope this issue can be overcome.
  7. finally, a multiple choice test i get -
  8. Nice read DD and fun stuff Y-san!
  9. Thanks you two for knocking this one out. I just couldn't let it go unsolved thus the previous bump. Knew you guys would bail me out. Don't know how to best use the Mark Solved feature with these multi-answer puzzles so have unabashedly linked here...
  10. ah yes Y-san, fresh eyes. and daunting, soaring, dare i say mountainous insight. correct on both accounts above. ps - have been following trying to follow yours but fear it is above my pay level. will keep plunderin tho.
