Try reading the latter -- it's plain English :wink:. As it says, you're in level 21 now. There are hints about that here too, but in the Level 21 section of the forum.

Finally, got it.

Man, I *hated* level 20. Too much poking around. Figuring out what to do once I got the password was really just a lucky guess.

Oh well. Onto to 21.

Grmpf. Am inside, have the pw, but the field beyond the fence seems to be a vast area full of 416... what now?

How did you find the password? Did you try to go further that way?

Haven't even gotten started with lev 20

I haven't even gotten started with level 20, despite 5 pages of hints here. Can someone help me get going? I know that I'm supposed to look past the fence, but I don't know what that means. One of the posts said something about there being additional data in the web page, but I have no idea how to get it. DON'T TELL ME TO FIND THE ZIP, PEOPLE KEEP TELLING ME TO FIND THE ZIP AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!! Sorry, got a bit carried away, calmer now.

unreal is a lot greater in reality.

Thanks. That actually almost makes sense. BTW, this is the most fun, and the best website, I've had/seen in a long time. I am in your debt in many ways.

I hate to spam the board with this kind of stuff, but I'm at a complete loss here.

I am thoroughly stumped at how to start this, even after all of the help you guys have given. Somehow, my mind isn't working with the word association clues you've presented, or there is some other major malfunction I don't realize. If anyone would be kind enough to PM me, or to give me an even more leading hint, I'd be exceedingly grateful.

As to what I've tried, without given too much away, I tried to take the "unreal is greater in reality" hint to heart, to no avail. I read up on all the protocol docs and RFCs that I care to read in one day. I've tried all combination of synonyms and antonyms for the obvious elements. Hopefully that gives those of you in the know some basis for helping me :-)

I'm inside, but can't work out what to do now. I think it is something to do with trying the other side, but can't work out how to do this - I haven't been able to get anything beyond a few lines of text (one of which told me I was inside, the others seemed useless) from varying the numbers in described in Section N.N.

I have read and re-read this thread several times.

Well, you got in at the front. I'd advice against dismissing any messages as useless though. As with an earlier level (evil!) don't be deceived by what the challenge tells you so assertively. If I were you, I'd see how big this private terrain is and see if there is a backdoor somewhere..

Do I need the 'sequence-y' number for this? I can't work out what that is, or if I have it, or indeed what 'sequence-y' means...

using y- (where y is one of a set of numbers) I got the messages I mentioned before. However, trying -0, -y, 0-y, y-0, (and anything else I could think of) just gives the JPEG or nothing.

EDIT: Solved it. To get in the back, you need to find the back first. Then just repeat the previous tactic.

The image itself isn't really that useful. It's the packaging of the image that is more interesting. If you use a python library to download the image, have a look what information came along with it. It's not unlike the snack level.
