Geocache Description:

"I say, Watson, this is a most serious case - the window is broken on both sides." (E)


At Sixes and Sevens

Having put my kids' secondary school on the map in one of my recent caches - Believe it or not (#1) - it's now time to pay a small tribute to my own, The Judd School in Tonbridge, Kent.

You could leave your car at the published coords, but the cache itself can be found at:
N 51° X W 000° Y
where 1000*X = (16*A*B)-157
and 1000*Y = (29*C*E)-133

You will need to derive values for A, B and C from the above photos. I'm afraid D is a little ambiguous! For E, you'll have to look elsewhere on the cache page.

 

Congratulations on the FTF to =Andy_R and Kermit&Co.


Puzzle solving hint #3 (more)

Another trick puzzle-setters often use is to conceal information on a cache page. For some puzzles, this hidden data could be an integral part of the puzzle; for others (like this one), the hidden data might simply provide an additional hint:

  • One way to hide information is to colour it white. This can be revealed by highlighting everything on the cache page. Ctrl+A should do this on most PC browsers - press 'Ctrl' and 'A' keys at the same time.
  • Information can also be hidden in comments in the HTML source of the cache page. To check for these on a PC, right click anywhere on the page and select the 'View page source' option. Search (CTRL+F) for 'UserSuppliedContent' to find the start of the data added by the CO - it runs from there down to the ROT13 decryption key. (Everything else is generated automatically and cannot be changed by the CO). Look for <!-- text hidden in comments -->.
  • Other useful information can be concealed even more craftily in the HTML. Subtle changes to font or colour may indicate key data, and the dimensions of displayed images may be more significant than they first appear.
  • If the cache page has a background image, this may also hold useful information. To check for one - and it may not be obvious - search for 'body background' in the page source.
