Not if you don't use it -- just downloading it isn't enough :wink:.

Argh... I can't believe this. I spent hours staring at the numbers, until much, much later I realized that I made a programming error that cut out duplicate digits... which is why when I used The Table earlier it didn't make any sense.

Heh :D

I don't understand how to do this level... I've downloaded and installed the (hopefully) correct module, now I just don't know what to do.

Assuming you DO have the right module, look at mjpeters hint at the top of page 3

EDIT: I get this error: "IOError: decoder zip not available" when executing my script..

If you find unprintable information, you made a mistake in your code. See earlier hints in this forum.

smart guy

So I'm supposed to be a smart guy.
I have a list of 9 numbers now but can't turn them into text. Some hints above I guess might be misleading:
- the unprintable chars are b/c the grey bar does not extend all the way across, and not due to a mistake in my processing
- Also, the first section of the bar is only 5 pixels wide, but this is not important.
I already used both parts of the hint (i*7, 43). Any other hint, missing info?

Duh...error in program logic---lost duplicates

Why don't you look at the picture with PIL?
Tell it where to look & it will tell you what it sees...

Can someone give a hint about extracting the grey bar, if that's what you're supposed to do. Does it involve crop? If not, can I get a hint for at least which module in the package to use, and maybe which function(s). I've looked through the main module and I don't see much, except maybe crop, but I don't know how to get the coordinates.

If (i * 7, 43) is a hint, I have no clue what 'i' means.
