Where's Oviraptor?  He's two days late now.

But that's just more time to try and solve the bonus!

He's had an extended delay getting back. He should be back soon. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow.

I have no other ideas for this. I'll just keep my guess and hope for the best.

How did you convert it into binary? just wondering.

Anyways, it's definetly following some complex rule that Ovi made up since he doesn't expect anybody to get it.

The computer calculator will convert to binary.

I'm hoping Ovi is back tonight to update but I have no idea. I last heard from him last Tuesday.

    Where am I?



    Bonus question 8: 38979276589745999469 represents somewhere on Earth. You have to somehow turn that into the letters of the place. I'll give you the hint that it doesn't have anything to do with coordinates. Since I don't think anyone will ever get this, I'm making it worth five points. If you can show me how you did it, I may offer you more on top of that. Unlike a normal question, I will give the answer to this in the next update.

    Answer: Well, no one got it right, but I fully expected that. So, here is the answer: Orlando, Florida. and here is how I coded it:

    Code: [Select]
    A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M
    1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10 11 12 13

    14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

    26^0  = 1 > A
    26^1  = 26 > D
    26^2  = 676 > I
    26^3  = 17576 > R
    26^4  = 456976 > O
    26^5  = 11881376 > L
    26^6  = 308915776 > F
    26^7  = 8031810176 > O
    26^8  = 208827064576 > D
    26^9  = 5429503678976 > N
    26^10 = 141167095653376 > A
    26^11 = 3670344486987776 > L
    26^12 = 95428956661682176 > R
    26^13 = 2481152873203736576 > O

    I can explain it better if you guys don't understand what I did. Anyway, you guys did some neat things trying to figure it out! Five points to Rhodix, Kenotai, LadyM and smjjames!

Somehow I have a feeling that he might be right, I'll go with Hawaii as well.

Edit: For the bonus, besides the obvious in that they are both tropical, I would say they are similar in that they are also both islands and are volcanicically active regions. Although for different reasons, Indonesia because its along the subducting Pacific tectonic plate and Hawaii because it's over a magma upwelling. Assuming Hawaii is correct anyway.

I don't think it is Hawaii. I'll go with Peru.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Thanks :)


OK, I'm going to guess for the bonus that they both include a lot of colors?  Other than that I see no similarity.

for the guess, Beijing, China(I have no clue)
