I found only two of those, part of a sequence of length 118. I found out what I did wrong with that sequence (a simple variation of the function used) and went on to the next step, the solution to which is still quite opaque to me. L seems quite deaf ATM. :(

Are you talking about the compressed file? I haven't found the file yet :cry:
L sounds interesting though

Ah, solved it. L wanted a taste too, and I brought what he asked for. Great level this one, let's you apply what you've learned so far and embellish it a bit.

Party time now! Well, that is until level 18 is released. :)

The sequence of 117 integers that I found before "that's it"': Is it relevant?

We're in the same boat!

Remember how you solved level 6, and how you found the sequence in the first place. The picture shows more than one snack to eat..

That's good going. I've tried four methods, with numerous combinations (including "yummy!" variations). Do you have any hints on keynames? He's still deaf as a post. (And I tried that too.) It would be nice if he would perk up a bit when I'm getting through to him. Arghh!

He likes the same recipe as the sequence that brought you to him; just remember you plusses!

He didn't when I did. :)

That keyname works like a charm. Guess we have a level 18 now. B-)

A lot closer...

OK, I finally found the sequence (turns out that my inital idea was the good one; I just investigated it poorly which led me to believe that I was on the wrong track). I handled the pluses, and I found L.

But now I'm unable to address him, despite all the hints already supplied. I tried all kinds of keys, but L stays indifferent to my requests.

L would like a taste of those yummie snacks you enjoyed on your way to him.

The only yummy snacks I've seen are c.{7}e c.{3}s, but I tried that (and countless other variations and combinations) with no success.

Make sure you use the same recipy as the ones you ate! Mind your plusses too, while you are at it. And don't confuse the server side with the client side protocol of course.

Did that help :wink:? If misery loves company, I'm still stuck at the start too. Guessed 3 URLs that gave text messages back (and guessed at a great many more that didn't ...), but taking their advice still leaves me staring at the original cookie picture and its peculiar seemingly irrelevant font color spec. Not much to show for two days' work :)
