Sounds a little strange to me - if we are talking about the same number (little longer with some more symmetry) you should already have an idea how to get past the fence. If you have problems how to accomplish this in python, maybe my previous hint can show you the way ;)

Can't seem to get this one. I've figured out the first part and been told that I'm inside, but I cannot find the back of the fence. I've tried going in the same amount from the back as the front and trying to use the same pattern from the back, but nothing seems to work.

My wife was trying to guess what's behind the fence and that way we ended directly in level 25 :-)

LOL! We should let her work on level 30, so I'll know how to name 35!

I realize that this is a dumb question, but what do I do with the password? I hear mumblings about a zip file, but I cannot locate said file...

Please, can someone PM me a spoiler, 'cause I'm behind very "angry" proxy, which is hiding everything from me.

The first thing you should do is climbing over the fence, and you don't go very far when you do this, you just fall on the other side of it, and only after that you can go further :wink:

Arrgh!! I simply can't get past the fence. I know what needs to be done, and I have read the appropriate sections in the various documents. By now I already know the necessary python libraries by heart. I must be doing something wrong, but I have tried a thousand different approaches. I suspect my problem is purely technical. Is going with req*s and head*s they correct way? Help, someone!

If you've understood what 14.35 means, you're on the right way, make sure what you give is correct, I searched for a long time before I noticed I didn't give the correct r*s with my h*s
Feel free to pm me if needed

Heh, I hate those Backus and Naur :) Should have read better. Anyway, I'm inside now.
Thanks, oiffrig!

...So uh. I've been stuck on this level since last summer. I don't know what's going on now. I'm now getting an error I did not get the previous times that I tried the same code. Is there anyone I can PM for some more specific hints?

I'm stuck on this Level for a few days now. I think I know the right trick to get behind the Fence but i always get HTTP Error 416. What could be wrong with my code?

Sounds like you are in the right direction. Pay attention to the details.

I'm stuck. I've gotten to the point where I get a message saying we can go on in this way for really long time. I've looked around at all the different spots I could think of, but I get this message no matter what numbers I try. I've read all the hints, but none of them helped me. Any other suggestions? What am I missing?

Also, I've found more that one URL that I can get this response from, an image, and a non-image - but they both seem give me identical results. Does it matter which one I use?

Nevermind. I had a typo in my script. On to level 21.

Still curious about the 2 urls, though...
