Oh right... will do, thanks! is some of it in French then? I could persuade my mum that it`s revision for my French exam!!! :-) I heard there was a little girl auditioning, and the part requires French. She lied and said she could speak it, when she had really just learnt one phrase to convince them she could. then she had to learn all the French parts in a couple of weeks with no knowledge of the language!

ahhh ok, thanks :-) oh i wish i coulda done it :-( lol oh well. The film has had such mixed reviews! Got slated at Cannes, and now by you!;) But my local paper gave it 5 stars, and another review i saw gave it 4. the presenter on the radio said it was rubbish. Who to believe!?!? I think i`ll see it soon anyway, just to satisfy my curiosity. It`s a shame they couldn`t have made it really great, but there you go.
I was thinking of not seeing it and reading the book instead, but i don`t know who i was trying to kid ;-)

the cryptc they sent out is like the 5 wheel decoder from the movie.. the code to open it is written on the box it came in. Mine was GRAIL, my neighbors was APPLE, both important code words in the move. (the movie sucks, btw) the final challenge was one of each of the puzzles:
restoration
currator
puzzle
observation
and chess

Well I did not get an email either.. i got a cryptex in the mail this morning. it was sent in a small box from california with the code on the bottom of the box to open it up. Once opened it directed me to a web site that is not valid til the 19th! The cryptex weighs about 3 pounds. Pretty neat thing. But.. No email about it at all!

^mmm well that would be cool, not sure how many people worldwide completed it, probably quite a few! It kept telling me they couldn`t process my request to register, so I gave up and tried again the next day. when i logged on it just said `thanks for completing the challenge` or something, with no link to register... and that was before the closing date. so i`m not really sure what happened or if i managed to register or not:\ damn puzzle.

Yay, i haven`t been posting in awhile but I`ve kept up with this religiously (no pun intended) I completed it and registered 5 minutes after last puzzle was posted.

Think any of us will be one of the ones who gets the limited edition cryptograph thing?

It lets you know if have it wrong or right. If it is wrong it makes you redo it. When yuo go back to the google homepage, if you completed a puzzle it will be brownish yellow, if you have not completed it, the icon will be blue.

Its actually a contest with a pretty good grand prize (not that I beleive I will have a chance at winning) There will be 24 puzzles a day that progressively get harder. And then one big final puzzle that only 10,000 finalist can attempt to solve.

I was already signed up for a personalized google homepage so it ws no hassle adding the module.
