    Hi Jen J, your "treasure hunt" is a great idea , I really laughed hard at myself at one point when I felt as the young boy in "A Christmas Story" must have felt when he received his code wheel from the Ovaltine club , frantically writing down the answers to the clues. Of course your reward is of more value·smile.gif

    Just had to relate that snippet it still has me smiling.

    They certainly know how to move product, as I just bought one.

    Wow! {I cheated, followed the final clue.}

    That is an incredible deal!

    Anyone who works with the Propeller should have more than one of these on hand!

    Jen,

    Great concept... BUT

    Ok, OK, OK... so I guessed wrong. So, then I googled it... and google got it wrong. Then I searched it and the search engine failed.

    Finally I followed the clues... and the contest closed.

    BUT in the process I was reminded of something... Parallax has a control board that I haven't ordered yet[noparse]:)[/noparse] Place that puppy at the end of the trail[noparse]:)[/noparse]

    I do have one complaint... there were no math questions. I studied math all night ... and there were no math questions.
