what the freak???

2. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

I'm getting there... I think. Not sure if it is a joke or something?

TCP/PI

Is almost TCP/IP!

Some nasty tasting, disinfected pie?

4. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

TCP รท PI = TCP/IP

5. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

Using the ASCII table...

T = 84
C = 67
P = 80

84 * 67 * 80 = 450240
450240 / 3.14 = 143388.53503184713375796178343949

Mark is correct (apparently)!!!

Next one......

62, and 65 and faster and faster

Don't get the data matrix question ??

[that's the data matrix image de-coded]

Security count??

10. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

Matrix decodes as Mark says -

http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache...lnk&cd=1&gl=uk

Now the clue states "Security counts but how many times?" which I figured must be a reference to the number of instances of the word "security on the page (URL). But either I am not counting right or I am just wrong...

Oh, and why does the safe say "ECC200" and "ASCII" - does this mean a text answer is required?

Thoughts anyone?

I thought the same thing Steve. ECC200 refers to the data matrix type.

12. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

I count thirteen instances (using CTRL+F) of ''security'' in text, plus 1 in text in a side-box, and 2 instances in picture form. So somewhere between 13 and 16. Have tried all these in number and letter form with no luck. The answerbox has space for 17 digits....ie 2 8-bit words and a space, but converting 1 - 3 to binary gives 00110001 00110011 which doesnt work.... neither for 14,15,16 conversions etc. I looked into converting to ECC200 in a 16x16 matrix but can't see how this data is useful, the matrix for 13 is wildly different (covering the whole 256 squares) than the one for 14, so I can't see it working.
Kinda stumped now

13. ## Re: What do you get if you divide TCP by pi ?

I'll leave the counting to you, but I suggest you loose the space...

The ASCII on the safe is slightly misleading, stick with binary!

BTW I've completed all four puzzles now, so just ask if you want any more hints...

Sadly I quite enjoyed it... he he

Cheers, Steve
