This is only the second week I have worked on The Hunt and I have no idea what I am doing.  I feel like I get a good start on things and then get stuck.  Hopefully something will make sense later tonight.  And congratulations to all of you who are much smarter than I am, including you sledge, I do not know how you come up with this stuff, but keep up the good work.

It seems I got the same answer as everyone else. So either it's real easy, and we're all right, or it's "Our Mutual Friend" all over again.

ETA: Interesting hint. Makes me think I did the part I did right, but I left out something.

The hint makes me feel like I have been doing the entire thing wrong.  I feel like sledge is telling us it should be easier than we are making it.  Maybe if the hunt is still going tomorrow I will try it again at work.

This hint is making me doubt my answer.

OK, the hint helped me a LOT.  I've got something that I think makes sense.  However, now that so many supersmart people submitted, but no answer yet, it makes me wonder if I should even submit tonight.  I went through a few steps but I keep thinking I'm missing one extra step.

EDIT: OK, I submitted something.  I'm not super-confident, but what I did was take the 'simpler' answer I got (and I think everyone else who put an answer in had) and I think I went a step further.  Only time will tell if I'm making things too simple or too complex.

You can go a step further? Then I'm definitely wrong.

Evil... keep in mind, I haven't gotten one of these right yet!  So I'm probably not right here either, I jus took a chance.

OK, OK, everyone's comments and Sledge's hint are making me doubt myself too. I thought I went through everything to get to an answer and now I just don't know. Now I'm feeling no where near confident in my answer.  :(

Add me to the list of people who submitted with a decent level of confidence, then read the hint and feel much less confident....

well since it was solved, we're allowed to discuss the results, right? so what did everyone submit?
