  1. I too, have been mulling over this one since you posted. Best I've come up with so far Don't think I'm there yet. Also, has crossed my mind that this one may be different than Sir Shakee's typical wai.
  2. okay, time to purge - been thinking along the lines of but still thinking am not quite there. much fun plasmid!
  3. trying to chime in here before Wilson too late. and of course his is excellent. rats!
  4. square formed 45 degrees from orthogonal using the black king?
  5. Rats, thought I might have it with but peaked at Wilson's latest salvo which looks more like a direct hit.
  6. ah man - thought for sure she had it. nice entré ash9898!
  7. Gotta think ^^ that's ^^ it. Nice reentry Wilson.
  8. Nice one as always monsieur 'puddn. plasmid steered me in the right direction with his interpretation of the first two lines. Must say I especially appreciate the double entendres in the second stanza. Very nice!
  9. Don't know if this is still relevant but my first two thoughts when looking at this mix of seemingly unrelated characters is their keyboard position or the ascii representation of the characters; and then some kind of manipulation of one of those relative to the 81 or 08/01 clue. Good luck.
  10. Had originally thought And another observation re site traffic: Think there is less spit balling of answers these days. Most now seem to reply only when highly confident of being correct. Tho guess that could be a consequence of lower traffic as previously there was more of a race to the solve. Still do think that adds to the feel of the lack of involvement.
  11. well hello good sir - great to see you here
  12. No fooling you three, y'all were all over this one. MM recognizing the slip fall right off, the good Captain doing the heavy lifting, and bn wrapping up the actual question which may have been apparent to you all just vaguely asked for in the OP. Cheers
  13. You and I each have a coin, select its orientation (heads or tails), and reveal to each other simultaneously. If both are heads, you win a dollar. If both are tails, you win a quarter. But if both are different, I win fifty cents. Fair enough?
  14. an attempt at an explanation by example
  15. Been extremely interested in this one plasmid my friend, and for the longest time thought the above post must be a mistake. Now think am on to you. Just need to figure out how to simply explain the solution if indeed my most recent process pans out. Just wanted to let you know am still on the case. Know it can be frustrating when a thread goes on without response, especially when it's a fine puzzle such as this one. I'll be back...
  16. or maybe yeah, so one of those three (not the first though)
  17. zero style points (for this guess, for now...)
