    theogeo: the sequence of which you mention goes from low to high, whereas what we see does what?

    For those stuck on 6:
    Mersenne primes are always displayed smallest to largest -- that's your clue.

    Is anyone on 12 yet? Oh, and Arkuden, works here :|

    yeah I got it. Page 7 blows thats all i can say. Ive managed to get the first half or at least the main clue but what to do with it....


    how do you all do that black mouse over for hints?




    EDIT: Never mind 8 was a breeze... so was 9... any ideas on 10? Heres what I got..


    the numbers I have for the equation (1+7 -7+6) - (1+7 -6+3) I turned into 1817 - 1828 I then did a google search becuase those numbers mean nothing to me lol and I havent gotten anything. Can i get another hint or know if im going the right way?

    It's the [ spoiler ] tag, IIRC.

    BBCode check...

    Yup. [ spoiler ] it is, minus the spaces, of course.

    Is 7 the one with the clue that says "I am true to my rasterized words"?

    If so, here's your hint: The next URL is one of those words. Your second timesaving hint is to start from the last word of the sentance and work backwards and see which is a real URL ;)

    How many bits to a byte? And remember this - 016 is still equal to 16 ;)
    You know what the numbers are - what order are they in? Since we normally display from lowest to highest, that sequence must be...

    I'm also stuck on this one.
    I actually got the dates 1776 - 1763 in addition to those, which I have discovered are the dates of the American Resistance. I also know that the dates you found correspond to the time that President James Monroe was in office. I just don't know what to do with them...

    you've got the answer there.
    Basically do the math to get the right dates and then the first thing you google is the answer.

    Horrible question, but the next one seems worse.

    OK... thanks for the hint. The next one wasn't terrible (
    it was elementary, in fact
    ), but then I got to the last one and just can't be bothered :worried:

    Alright I lied... *feverishly tries to decode last page*

    Doin the bits to bytes isn't working.

    I have tried entering it in bytes, I have tried adding them all up.

    No previal.

    I think I am really not cut out for math.

    Adding is the clue, but not in the way you're thinking.

    I finally got to the 4th one! Haven't read it yet...

    :clap: Got number 4 too after a bit of googling of
    ludas - so the past pages are relevent to the clue you are trying to find?

    If there aren't enough bits to make a byte, then make it so that there are ;)
