Did you solve it, then? I have not. Not looking for a clue yet (although "Unreal" may have been one). This is so cool, because there doesn't appear to be anything to do here except thrash looking for patterns that aren't there :wink:.

No, I'm not even close. I have no idea. I just wanted first post :)

LOL! You win. I peed away an hour trying to decipher an astonishing pattern I had found -- and then realized it was due to a bug in my pixel-slinging code :oops:. I have to stop for the night, so I hope to read you've solved it when I wake up. Good luck!

Unlikely. I need to get some sleep myself. I've already spent 16 hours on 0 thru 19 that I could have spent on Leonardo

All I'm getting is JPEG compression artifacts. I need to think of somewhere else to look.

Hmm. I've burrowed to 4050 levels of privateness (level 1 is limited to 255 chars), but nothing interesting to show for it. There must be a pattern somewhere: is there a chainlink series or something? I'm off to google...

wiml: I think you need to look past the fence...

dfsmith: I've only had to burrow in to 143 or so, but I've been told that I'm inside... now all I have to do is figure out what that means :)

Levels of privateness? I don't even know what that means :-)

Can't seem to do that. I've tried a few ways of looking past that fence and while I'm learning a lot about the layout of jpeg files, I'm learning nothing of the private property past fence.

Doh!

The next clue is not so much *in* the jpeg file as it is *past* it. You just have to know how to ask for what you want.

Have you tried looking with your fingers instead of your eyes?

As I am not Roger from CRFH (http://www.crfh.net/), my fingers aren't very good at seeing things ;)

Well, I'm still directionless trying to find what I want. May I ask if this is a very Python puzzle (__dict__ etc.), or an English puzzle (realestate, etc.)?

Okay, this is more promising - I'm looking past the unreal rather than the idiot
