No.


I think you have found it; you just overlooked it.

I'm confused by this talk of a sequence of 118.

I followed a chain of 231 links and the last 9 included something tasty.

Am I on the right track trying to do something with this sequence of 9 bytes?

Sounds like you might have followed the wrong chain. The correct one gives a sequence of length 118.

Did you pay close attention to the photo?

I went back to level 6 and was busy instead. My sequence ended with that's it and that response (and the eight before it) were the only ones that had byte of something tasty in them.

There was another chain I could have followed?

Did you grab a snack before you went back?

I thought I did. Perhaps the problem is my code. Let me try again...

A check in the browser of my first step indicated I must have had a problem with my code. It's good to B going down the right path now...

Got stung by the bzz at first. But it worked with a more sequential variant.

Now to give you-know-who a call...

Perhaps I should just read instructions rather than trying to offer him snacks :-)

Did you follow the instructions from the file?

Yep, just minutes before your message.

Thanks for you help. On to level 18 :-)

I need some help

Hi, I need some help with this level.

I have found the compressed file and read the message inside.
But I don't know how to interpret it. Who should I call ? Is this
the famous Mr L ? Who is that anyway ?

Is L the "data structure" from level 6 ?
I tried to give him the F message in a snack, but he does not
understand this.

Thanks for any hints,
Maciek

I have found what would appear to be a compressed file, any hints on how I am to handle it, nothing I've tried so far works.

There are two methods in the helpful Python library that you probably used to collect the information that contain the vexing character in their function name. They both have counterparts without the extra suffix. Check their use.
