    OK I've tried binary ANDing the 4 digit numbers together. I've tried to OR them. I've tried NOT on the second one and ANDing it with the first. Nothing meaningful looking so far, and now Real Life beckons me to do things that are actually productive.

    STEP ASIDE. SRS BSNS AHEAD.

    In the interests of making this thread as productive as can be, rather can make a separate thread (since the next puzzle piece could help us solve it tonight) we must put our foots down and ask people to stop posting things that aren't on topic, or posting random useless junk that has no contribution to solving the puzzle or the discussion at hand. While we love the fact this thread has generated so much activity, it is our primary objective to solve this puzzle and report the CORRECT answer. This cannot be achieved by useless posts, so if you wish to just do idle chat...our Random Chat forums have a Random Thoughts thread that we'd love for you to post in to your hearts content.

    Otherwise from here on out, posts about the puzzle only please. Many of you have been good with this (like Vriska for example), but a few of you have gone badly off topic. We need to get this thing cracked, and trolling/talking about hilariously fake rumors isn't going to get us anywhere.

    We've decided to keep the thread open but we're going to start coming down HARD on unproductive posts that do not contribute toward the solving of this puzzle. Please keep any random or non-contributing posts to the shoutbox. This thread is now for serious puzzle solvers only.

    i like this, considering 4 of the non revealed letters would be E,S,O,S. the letters to form the last words would be L,V,N and _(any letter)

    I never thought of the possibility that we may need to use both sets of letters. Not sure how we'd go about that though.

    No one said we have to go from top to bottom on what we've got so far. LP said we're close so I'm guessing we should try anything (and eventually get surprised :p)

    Top to bottom would be far too easy, which is why I do not believe the "Living Things" theory. There's definitely a phrase in there, but top to bottom isn't the right idea imho.

    also, we might need the letters for the first digits.

    5 = E
    4 = D
    3 = C
    6 = F
    7 = G

    Hmm, it's possible it can be two words? I'm still trying to unscramble the letters.

    Sorry if this has already been explained, but with the number equaling the letters thing. How are both 13 and 9 the letter I, should 9 not be I and 13 be M? Or am I just being a fool?

    stl22 had me put them in numerical order.

    6. <!--61752 1732--> = 20
    1. <!--53282 3265--> = 17
    7. <!--53168 3156--> = 12
    9. <!--44682 4658--> = 24
    2. <!--41602 1589--> = 13
    10. <!--39376 9365--> = 11
    3. <!--31157 1132--> = 25
    4. <!--00000 0000-->
    5. <!---->
    8. <!---->
    11. <!---->
    12. <!--00000 0000-->
    13. <!---->
    14. <!---->
    15. <!--00000 0000-->
    16. <!---->

    If you are using both sets of letters, should we mix and match between the two or treat them each as separate phrases?

    NO. I'm not sure if you were joking or not, but let me clarify anyway.

    It CANNOT be "Living Things." 9 = i

    for it to be "Living," 0 would have to also = i. and that isn't possible.

    I am trying to do that. I think we should mix and match, imo.

    That doesn't spell out anything that makes sense, so that can't be it.
