Oh well, finally was able to figure it out. Thanks people for help! It wasn't that bad after you found out where the data was located and this thread was read quite many times. Thanks!

Okay, so I've (verb)ed the (noun)s, but I'm completely stuck. Now what do I do? The (module) doesn't look to be any help when it comes working with the (noun)s. Does the pairs hint have something to do with it?

Edit: Never mind, I got it. I looked it up, but I think that doing so was totally justified. There was no way for me to know I had extracted the (noun)s in the wrong order.
(That's a hint in disguise, everyone. ;))

Hints

I was stuck just (verb)ing the (noun), for several days, without even finding the data. You have to get the data, using conventional means, before you can start applying Python to the data. Here are some hints, for those stuck at my level:

(noun) is not the Python built-in (at least, not at this stage), or in any Python documentation.
(noun) is not the one in Challenge 2 (but yes, there is a (noun) in Challenge 2, as well as several other nouns in the hints)
4 is to php as 6 is to (noun)

:? I'm stumped beyond belief. I used what I believe to be that (noun) class, but I'm unable to find any approiate-looking values for (unix-cli-prog)-like output. Could someone please tip me in the right direction. And yea, I have read each of these messages 5x over. -Wes

Edit: N/m found it

JohnWhitlock provided the best set of hints I can find so far. If you don't understand what he meant by the php hint, go back level 4 and look at it again. ;) You might just find what you've been missing all along.

Hi all!

Love this challenge series (allthough it's driving me mad)

I can't figure out where to get the data and how to process it.
i've found [verb} the [noun] now, what's next?
is it the image source that i'm suppose to use or what?!

This is driving me mad. I've read this complete forum topic many times.

Please help,

Patrik_mrx

Once you got the data, you will know how to process it. For finding the data consider the following hints:

These hints are even more cryptic than the hints in the pages are. We are supposed to use what we have learned thus far, and many mention level 4 which was essentially a structured bruteforce. Are we supposed to bruteforce this as well? I know it shouldn't have to be, but I have been through every module and see nothing that even appears as though it would help.

I have managed to find several pages referencing the nouns, simply by guessing. So far including the initial page I am up to four found. Are there more I am missing? I do see a pattern in them and have used serveral different $$$$$$$ons to find these but have run out.

My next step is to start using what I know, and take a different path to find the solution.

** EDIT **

Found the data, feel like a rather large dolt for missing it now.
