Question

Posted · Report post

This might be an interesting genre of riddle. Others can give it a try.

So you're a writer, Bill. Care to give us a sample of your work?

Sure. Here's a few bits of it: FF?

I guess it's to show what sense it has.

It might have been posted as a logic puzzle, but it seemed riddle-like as well.

Still not really making sense. It what way are our answers to be posted? Is it the profession of the interviewee, what they said, etc.

Profession is given.

What was said is cryptic.

Logical, but cryptic.

No, but you're thinking about the part that's cryptic.

Could be ...

maybe some kind of computer coding, like JAVA or C++...?

Or even...a Dictionary writer, but that makes little sense... :blush:...? :P

He must be a software writer. a few bits are the basic unit of information in computing.

FF are hexadecimal digits. (255 in decimal, i think) And the primary use of hexadecimal notation is a human-friendly representation of binary-coded values in computing and digital electronics.

I've got it

I'm the author. As you can see from my avatar, I'm a lolcat who simply manages to type with my hind paws. The sample of "FF" was actually hexadecimal for 15 15. And in binary that's 1111 1111 - exactly the pattern you would get if I swiped the paper with both sets of forepaw claws.

Srsly though I still have no idea.

You're sniffing around the right tree. You could be close enough, or, you could insert a logical step.

That fits celebrity and bits, but misses profession and punctuation.

Good try.

Hi mrzincs, and welcome to the Den!

That would be correct. ;)

Now, for the rest of the coveted bonanova Gold Star, can you logically decode his message?

To be or not to be? Reasoning: FF is 1111 1111 which is two Bytes?

To and Two are homophones.

But why FF?

Clue: EE? or AA? or 3C? don't fit the puzzle.

Even tho they also are two bytes.

Oh, how cute! Good job, Depew!

2B | ~2B would indeed result in FF

This is an odd genre of a puzzle, Bonanova. I look forward to the next one.

MrZincs, I have no idea how you arrived at that answer.

Impressive job, all of you.
