Just saw it this morning and still don't get the first one, can someone please explain it to me
What was the original question for riddle one?
from what i understood...the animated picture, Florent drew showed a road sign...when you googled (image search) "road sign and metric" with a little luck you got road signs used on the U.S. interstate highways between Mexico and Arizona... ...the 'metric' was the biggest clue, since that was an exclusive element used on that particular interstate highway...a test in the 1980's for the metric system in the U.S., which did not catch on^^
...and Ravious was the first to solve this rather tricky puzzle :->, congrats...
you will frighten everybody ^_^
this is brilliant explanation and for the most difficult way to solve it, but it is easier to take the number 024814 and the word metric and put it in google image. Then, you can see that one of the picture use the same graphic of the artpard. In it, you see a 19, and july written at the bottom of the panel. Then, you can guess that you have the right picture and the date.
It is a good warm up, because next ones should be more difficult ^_^ But! Stupid Games (TM) are also there with no thinking! It was a little the spirit of giving the date at the 7th place.
I will try to be there by 10 p.m. tonight and the days after.
Keep in mind that even when the Beta 1 will be launch, I may still be there to provide Beta 2 keys.
Now, if the work is to hard on the betas, I will not have time. We will see
