Hehe. The little extra in this level was nice. Get waggling.

Oh, this one is very cool, once I worked out how to deal with 133 of them instead of just 1, I saw the wiggling. Now I just need to do something with it. The hints seem just right.

Ahh. I should reset between wiggles. Then it's much clearer.

Well, that one seemed easy after 20 and 21 :!:

What do I do with my life now? :lol:

I have some ideas about the wriggling (and about sustaining motion), but I need to get some sleep first..

That was cool. I liked that I knew exactly what to do.

Unlike the last friggen level ... man, I'm going to be angry at that last level for a long time.

The l___s hint wasn't enough for me. Needed prodding via PM's.

Oh well. This one makes up for it. :-)

Nice! I liked this one, too (though I had to use a dictionary to get behind all of my foreposters' W-words... ;) )

Well, I could see some wiggling after changing just one byte, but now , I am stuck! I have read the format specification and cut the file into minimal pieces, but whatever way I arrange them, I don't see anything pointing to a new url...

I have a way to produce something looking more or less like a sequence of 19 joystick manipulations, but no idea how to interpret it.

Am I missing something obvious ?

OK , I eventually made it, but it was exhausting. I almost wrote a complete decoder from scratch before discovering the right tool in a Python library!

Well, it was kinda funny... I was completely stumped on 21 at first, and then I managed to make it work. I spent at least a week mulling the first step, and yet it only took me 10 seconds to realize what l__s meant.

This time I was thrown off by one of Privoxy's filters to begin with. I wrote a script to 'turn up the contrast' on the image, so to speak, but nothing sticks out for me; I still have no idea what is going on here.

What do you mean? Do you still see nothing after enhancing the contrast, or do you see something but don't know what it means?
