Here are the hints for this week (File 6 – File 9):
File 6 ———-
This file is more about what is missing. Think of each line as an attempt to login with the result as XXXXX for each one, what is the logical next attempt?
File 7 ———-
The key is +3
And the hint is: D A E B B
Assume that A = 1. If we add three we will get 4 or D. If we are at the end of the alphabet, like Y = 25, we add three and get 28. Since the alphabet stops at 26 we can start back at 1 and continue counting till we get B.
Is the hint before or after the key was applied?
File 8 ———-
X hates B
A loves Y
Y has a twin
X likes to be first
If X hates B and X likes to be first than we can assume the code looks something like this:
X – – – B
It also mentions that Y has a twin and A loves Y. This means there are 2 Y’s and one A. If you were an A, and you really loved Y’s, where would you want to be?
File 9 ———-
Go to breakfast at 9:00
Pick up clothes at 6:00
Go to lunch at 12:00
Pick up milk at 9:00
Meet client at 3:00
Look at a clock face and imagine each time. Now hold up your controller up to the clock and use the hour hand to find your code.
Check back next week for more hints!
