hint needed

I've dug deeper and been told that I'm in, but I can't see anything different... Other posts talk about going back but that didn't help. Hints please!

Confused

I've already read through all the posts and still can't seem to get started on this. I'm definitely a web noob and wasn't able to find anything interesting in the headers. I thought I found the standard that people were refering to but it really didn't have anything to do with the hints I had been given so far. Any PMs would be appreciated.

Edit: I found the supposed magic number but no matter what I put in I always get either an error code or the exact same response. Help!

Ok, the main problem that I was having had to do with the fact that the python module u****b is broken. It throws an error on an error code that it shouldn't. I had to go into the module's code and fix it. Kind of disappointing to have to fix "library code". After that was done, the challenge was easy.

Edit: I'd also like to add that I was using 2.4.1 (Linux)

I'm stuck really close to 21 (i suppose).. I got in, went to the back and got a password and a location where i find the first 5 bytes of a compressed file. But i can't figure out where to go to get the rest...
I already tried some of the steps that worked close to the fence and at the back, but they all give me an error.. :cry:
What am i missing?!?

[EDIT:] never mind.. got it. just some problems with escape sequences and strings :wink:
21 here i come...[/EDIT]

I got the pass, but applying it (after some transformation) on the url leads me to 404, without any transformation I get a msg confirming me that I am the i***r, but where to go now?
Should I look somewhere further?

Damn, this one was 'annoying'. Not the actual puzzle itself but I had the dreaded company firewall problem. Had to do it at home in the end.

Firewall-Proxy

Please PM me with some info regarding this.

PIL

I gathered I have to look a bit farther. But, do I need to write a JPEG parser or can PIL help me? Or, am I on a wrong track? I am just looking at the fence picture. Also: I forgot to apologize to L :oops: . Does it matter?

Yes -- but a lot farther.

False dichotomy :wink:.
Or, am I on a wrong track?

Getting warmer in here, isn't it?
I am just looking at the fence picture.

That will continue to do you as much good as it's done you.
Also: I forgot to apologize to L :oops: . Does it matter?

For shame. I suppose that if you die before apologizing, you'll probably go to hell. Won't make any different in your ability to see (way) beyond the fence, though. How far beyond the fence is it theoretically possible to go? Try going there next :).

I found what 14.35 meant and where I could use it, but it doesn't work (on the image, maybe I'm wrong). Got the number with 020 inside, but the one after the "/" seems to be unreal...
I have something like
  Code:
{"%s": "%s %i-%i", ...

Am I using the good syntax?
I use this on the image but I only get the image itself... not what I expect (if there is something to expect, though).

There was an error in my code...
Now i get 416 for each attempt...
[EDIT] Was thinking wrong, I'm inside now
[EDIT2] Got a password, what should I do with?
[EDIT3] Missed a part. On to level 21 :D
