Interesting theory you've got there, furshur. Do you have any evidence to support either assertion?

Actually, no I do not have any evidence - I made up that tripe about spiders being unable to walk backwards...

The stupid puzzle was kicking my ass!

If I knew then what I know now then I would know more now than I know.

Let me finish my map first, then you can give out some more hints.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Geez, Ricky, you had most of the map done already. What's taking so long?

That fact that I stopped working on it.

I'll have it done by tonight.

I hate to gloat, but I just got this one after 17 minutes of work.

It might have helped that I'd thought about tossing this very code at you, Ricky.

My reply will be forthcoming, shortly.

Damn, I guess it wasn't as funkadelic as I had hoped it was. Maybe next time my code will take you more than a half hour. But then again, probably not.

Ok, are these puzzles or codes? Can they be solved just thinking about them or do you need to draw tables and all that jazz?

Drawing a map may help, since both of them only show you a small part of the whole thing at any given time (that's obvious: I'm not giving anything away there).

Other than that, for both the "spider puzzle" and this latest thing, there is no math required, nor any other sort of "substitution" needed, nor any need to worry about "bits" or "bytes" or "ASCII" or anything like that.

Not that just thinking about them will necessarily get you anywhere. At least some manual labor may be required.
