@ffao what is biplane though?

fixed-wing aircraft with two main wings?
And I don't think that you were talking about planes

On a technical note, the first planes were ass-backward and upside-down. Things work out.

ass-backward? It doesn't sound anything peculiar

7:06 PM
Dawg!

Oh lol I just realised what the imgur code is for the maze in my puzzle: 'saSSy' :P

Damn. I was gonna type "Dawg" before you edited it.

@Sid semi-serious? I thought it had potential, but I didn't think it was right

@Sconibulus Yeah, it is possible. I don't understand the wordplay though.

"This video is not available."

@BeastlyGerbil The maze isn't solved yet?

Anyway. Time to sleep. College/School tomorrow.

no... @Sconibulus should solve it if he takes another look though
not much left to do

@Sid The maze is solved. Right now we're wondering what to do with the initial letter palindrome.
(The answer doesn't happen to be PALINDROME, does it, BG?)

And plus he bruteforced the key :P
Yep

7:10 PM
we discussed it here
4 hours ago, by Deusovi
@Sconibulus ...PALINDROME?

...Lock was literally my second guess

that hardly counts as brute force

That was part of the riddle

Oh... Palindrome was the password. Cool

7:10 PM
Well I've given a hint on how to get 'lock' as the key
All that remains now
Good job @sconibulus and @deus

I posted everything that's there, didn't I?

we discounted it because it didn't make sense with the "find me" part

@deusovi that was about the grandfather :P

also, we assumed PATHS AWE NOW TIMES SEMI TWO NEW ASH TAP must have some other meaning, because it didn't seem particularly coherent

> is a Palindrome (which has ten letters?) but I'm not sure how helpful that is to help find a man. I've looked for words like 'directions' or 'mortician's' hidden backwards in the earlier messages, but not found anything promising as yet.

7:12 PM
Its the password to the computer - theres going to be a sequel
The question is find the password
I can see that the phrasing may be confusing though, sorry about that :/

any explanation of why that particular palindrome was chosen?

(this is so much better than sitting the crapper with pen and glasses)

> Patterns Are the Heroes Salvaged And Words Even Negative Ones Would Talk In Many Endless Situations Some Even May Ideally Think What Only Near Early Wishes Are Sadly Held To And Postulate
was also an interesting choice

Perhaps because it isn't quite popular?

No reason - I just made it up. I needed a pretty long one so I could have the initials be x long to fit the grid
@Sconibulus yeah. It was hard getting the right amout of characters

7:15 PM
@BeastlyGerbil You probably mean "right". :P

and "amount". :P

ah my spelling
Anyway the final part - The hint refers to the letters FD SG HK ED BF NF LJ UA FD
It'll be obvious when you get it

"Grid coordinates give KEY IS LOCK"
he said that in his answer

ah sorry didn't see the update
Was looking at an old version - hadn't refreshed :P
In that case @Sconibulus if you edit in the final answer I can give you the tick

7:20 PM
(Sorry about having missed that check, D, i was too busy trying to ^vote multiple times.)

No need to apologize. I'm not particularly worried about gaining rep, except to pass up Rand :P

The race is on!

Sorry I was so illiterate

The race is on, and I'm lagging behind by over 10k rep!

I think I messed up transcriptions two or three times

7:27 PM
It's such a pleasure to be caught between ^votes and a checkmark. In case anyone wonders, i play it down here only because that's allowed.

@deus but you are slowly gaining! And you know if you really wanted you could just suspend rand :P

Yeah, apparently that'd be an "abuse of power", or so the other mods tell me.

Now I want to see Rand al'Together be suspended just to witness another comeback.

@Randal'Thor might be interested in this conspiracy

I found a message on a nature walk. It warned me there was a wild gathering out and about. But instead of saying what to be careful of, the message only gave me nine clues. They said each symbol given could be combined, as type 1 but not 2 or 3, to give me the group on the loose. A symbol ...

7:38 PM
Actually, i don't wish R'a'T to endure another year of comeback. That takes patience.
But I do enjoy her/him to risk it again and again.
The worst part of my technique is to encourage others.
Also the best part . . . play along . . .
Spoiler (possible duplicate): I follow while others whisker, come what may.
... "while" = "where" ...
... it's really so much easier to type in another language with more complexity and fewer options ...

apterous is an 8 letter word which means wingless

Makes sense.
One might say it's apt.

Meanwhile, try to get it.
