The Incredible Puzzle Thread

Hi,

This is a thread to discuss some of your other favorite puzzles, riddles, brain teasers, armchair treasure hunts, etc.

To get started, here's an online puzzle hunt I've participated in before: Puzzlecrack. It's a week-long competition with clues given through the web page. Past competitions (and solutions) are still there for you to figure out.

Another similar one is Microsoft's College Puzzle Challenge.

Any other favorites?

    Fun puzzle, isn't it?
    I'll give the rest of you a chance to solve it too. I'll post the solution tomorrow, for those that are still stumped.



    Comeon... It's tomorrow somewhere... What's the answer?

  • I stopped caring a while back. Barely glanced at the solution. This sounds like an Ouverture Facile kind of thing, except on that website that's the kind of thing you expect.

    Thanks for sharing, though, and sorry we didn't get it.

  • Ha ha!

    I didn't think my puzzle (yes, now that I think about it, thats a better name for it) would cause so much trouble. :D
    I'm his friend who came up with the puzzle.

    If you want some more info, here is how I made it:
    1st, I used free software to make the tone.

    Morse Code

    Then, I hid the file in picture with help from this.

    Hiding things in plain site

    (Basically, if your on windows, you can make one really simple with this code "copy /B source.gif+source.zip target.gif" it just has to be a gif)

    I felt hiding a text file would be too easy. I was going to add another layer, but I don't think that was needed now.
    Thanks for playing all, and sorry for trouble :)

  • Oh wow that was fiendish fink, well done :)

    What comes next in the sequence:
    R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,R,B,Y
