I can confirm that :? This was funny: I was stuck on level 12 while a friend was stuck on level 13. On IM, I complained I had too many files and too few clues. He replied "you have too many files?". And that got both of us unstuck :P

That's the problem... I already tried to use the phone number as in all previous levels, but without success... :roll:

Does 'use the phone number' has a different meaning here? :?:

Not really, but perhaps a bit. Try using the phone number in a way almost but not exactly as in all previous levels -- or, to the contrary, use the phone number in a way that's more exactly like the way previous levels have worked :twisted: . Anything different about the phone number from previous things you've pasted into URLs? If so, anything you could do to make it less different?

Ouch! Silly me... I've spent more time 'interpreting' the phone number than to find it... :oops:

Thanks for the confuse but helpful tips! 8)

If I were you I'd use the supplied phonebook, dial 5 for operator. ;)

Phone books are pretty simple: They exchange a name for a number. THis phonebook is no different.

A U.S. phone number is formated like "(713) 555-1212", where the number in parentheses is the area code (omitted for local calls in those places with only one area code), and the next seven digits are the local number. (My example is the Houston directory assistance number, but that's not important.)

Businesses often choose phone numbers to spell words. For example, the Holiday Inn reservation office is (800) HOLIDAY, which is equivalent to (800) 465-4329 (see the image).

After dialing 5 for the operator how do you tell the "operator" the name you wish to find? I have read the error message and tried to enter the name appropriately, hovever no result. How would I know if I am using the phone book correctly. Could this be a windows bug?.

How to make the call

I *thought* I knew how to call, but it seems like I'm barking up the wrong tree. I typed out some dirty words, and then tried to clean up with soap -- but I just don't seem to be using the right method.

Could someone please put me on the right track?

When you first dialed 5, did you take a good look at the error message?

Yes. But it stays the same, whatever parameters I GET or POST; "XML error: no element found at line 1" is simply not very helpful.

Feeding XML-ish data via POST changes nothing, and the error gives no DTD.

For the moment, I'm assuming a server-side bug.
