The Lost Letter

4:40 pm - I recall enjoying solving this one a while ago. It's nice to learn something new. I also recall having some extra numbers and throwing nthem away.

Today I was in the neighborhood and thought I would stop by to sign the log. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I had to do. I doublechecked, but I did not have the numbers, so I started a brute force. This was made even more difficult by the ants that were crawling all over the cache. I had to stop frequently to brush them off. I nearly convinced myself that the brute force wouldn't work when it finally did. That was painful. There were some muggles in the area, so I quickly signed the log and headed home. Thanks!
