I was wondering if you'll be syndicating these puzzles. I am working on a puzzle type site right now(iRIDDLER.com).

The puzzles seem to be on the easy side. The thing is that if the numbers start getting too big, you have to use a calculator to help find the pattern(like with the middle one).

I have finished the script, and have finished a "Clue" type puzzle too

tim - I am initially doing this for spencer's ezine. Basically I do daily horoscopes, and now puzzles for him in return for ad spots, and him dealing with all the hassle parts like actually sending it, getting subscribers and stuff like that. I would consider offering a modified version of this content to other people too, or selling a license to the script (it's ASP not Perl) - for a non-trivial price - or syndicating the content via remote hosting @ hits4me.com in future (similar to daily webmaster tips etc.), but I haven't planned that far ahead. Make me an offer or suggestion, if interested - no promises yet on my side - mail to webmaster@ans2000.com !


Here is a sample puzzles Ezine, with the ads edited out. I need spencer to review it first, so this isn't official, do you like the murder mystery puzzle?

Brian Lee said that Mr Forester told him he was with Mr Moore - TRUE
John Nielson said that he was alone with Mr Moore - FALSE
Thomas Moore said that he was alone with Peter Forester - TRUE

...so the guilty man is John Nielson.

WC,
Mr Moore is guilty. He claims to have been with Mr Michaelson, who claims to have been with someone else, lol.
I like the content, and think it would good as filler for a lot of newsletters and ezines. Let us know when the price structure gets set for the script!

My head hurts, but I made those murder puzzles work properly every time, I *think*. Sorry for that long post. If anybody has not yet died of boredom, I added today one new type of puzzle, example:

Paul, Bob, and Linus have just returned from holiday in Kornustonia. They visit the money exchange to trade their unused Kornustonian money for US dollars. Paul gets $176 in exchange for 8 Estillings, 6 Gribs and 8 Krones. Bob gets $208 in exchange for 9 Estillings, 8 Gribs and 9 Krones. Linus gets $232 in exchange for 10 Estillings, 9 Gribs and 10 Krones. What is the exchange rate for the Estillings, Gribs and Krones?

They're good. But I didn't read all of them. In the first one, you see D (going by initial of first name) was by himself, so it could be him, but it would seems like C is lying (which you said he was).

I was wrong! I thought I saw a pattern, but say a different one, so it's not just the same this person says he's with this person but they're with someone else deal. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
