    I gave up on 17. There were too many too obscure answers, with no reasonable logical progression from clues to solution.

    I'm stuck on number 3. It seems this is the second version of the original Gimmickry. The first one was easy.. this one just makes me try nonsense answers in hopes I succeed.

    Any idea what 3 is? It's the think on fire with the word "Burn!" and the image title is "starter." wtf?

    excellant. Thanks Pete. Part II is making me feel dumb.

    I used to frequent another puzzle site where the theme was "hacking." It starts out easy, like the password is blatantly obvious... to checking the javascript code down to just plain hard shit.

    Now that was fun. I like gimmickry, but notpron I loved. Mostly because I was actually able to do it without one million clues and support from others lol.

    i have had an email from nullmask with some clues to 17 -pure, in a typically green enviorment, deep, think about breathing and then relate it to pure. Word begins with "in". Still not able to think of what it is. Hopefully this will help someone else.

    I need a clue for level 11 or something... I do not get it. And it does not require Google to solve. It's the one with the guitar.

    In the source code it has a link (commented) to Deathball soccor for UT2k4.

    i just got an email from nullmask,

    Pure and deep are related in questions of the environment and what you do; what is pure? That one's easy; however, deep can be tougher (but not too much, really). Just think about how life is possible... Then, it's a question of relating both of 'em.

    The answer word could be part of what one'd say when he's near plants, grass... where's that?

    this should get us the answer

    Absane, are you doing notpron? Or am I just confused, and you're actually doing something else?
