I think you might be good at solving these, so here is a link to a steganography (well, kind of) Advent calendar. Some of them might not be so steganograph-like but it should still be interesting :P

I have to agree, that is pretty cool.


Debugging is what programmers do to beta software to make it take up more room on your hard drive if it is running too efficiently.

I'll agree with that. I _almost_ didn't get #1 because it was so obvious i thought it couldn't be the right answer.
A good find all the same. Smile

Yah ups for the find - though I do agree with AldarHawk it needs to get harder. Though finding nonsensical answers are lame, hopefully they fit together in the end.

I was actually referring to the rankings. When I looked earlier today I was #4 and you were #2, I see that's changed now.

You may have won this battle... but the war is far from over Wink

If you measure the time from when you release the steg, your actually measuring who can be bothered to go solve it first rather than how long it takes the person to solve it. It's also unfair to those that are fast asleep or are at school at the time you release the image.

Oh well, it doesn't really matter. It's not like there's any prizes for coming first.

Overall, it's an awesome idea and seems like a bit of fun. Thanks Mouzi! Though the first one has got me stumped. I'll probably be kicking myself in the arse when/if i figure it out.

I know.. it's unfair but it would be even more unfair if it was made so that it measures time from when you opened it to when you solved it. You could create another account and solve it with that. I can't think of any way to prevent cheating.

A bit harder and def more fun. Though i did have the answer in the first 15 min the pic was released, than 17 hours later to get it to accept (sleep included) it. Guessing on characters that are barely recognizable is annoying (The first character does not look like what it is Pfft).

Wow... that was really annoying. I don't mind challenges getting technically more difficult, but I got to a point on this one where I had just literally brute force that first character.
