    Okay, fair point. But still, why then is there a space between "Liv" and "(i)ng"? What is the point of that? shouldn't it just be "liv(i)ng"?

    You can't just assume the unknown will be an "i." And we're still not sure if our translations are even correct to begin with.

    Yeah sadly there is no easy way to find things like that since the directory has a default page... it masks what is contained within.

    Why zeros has to be necessarily a space?
    The puzzle is 4x4 and "Living Things" is 12 letters long. Probably could have been inserted at random to fit the 4x4 grid with for not to mess up the whole hidden hint :p

    They might not be spaces. If you want to make 0 = A, just move every letter back one letter.

    Step 1 to understanding base 36.
    I'm currently not at my pc due to the fact that it is 1:30am in the morning where I am or else I would've helped expand further upon this concept.

    Edit: didn't appear as I wanted it to but you guys get the gist.

    I was just trying to prove the fact that Living Thing is still a viable option not that it is the correct one. In any event the next clue will either disprove Living Thing or make it more likely that it is the solution but based on the current information it can't be officially ruled out like everyone was shouting is all. As for saying 0's is a space in my puzzle I treated 0's as dead squares in the image I put up.

    And not necessarily a letter!
    I mean stuff like that L I V / (I) N G (/) T H (I) / N (G) / (S)
    "0" are used only to reach a 4x4 grid, since every piece of the puzzle gives us a hint.

    PS: I tried with 0=A and i stopped at the first three letters, they make no sense at all :p

    Edit: 30minutes to the next piece, let's see :p

    I'm sure other people have thought about this but...what if the answer isn't the words "living thing" or "living things". What if the answer is an example of a living thing. Like...let's say a bird or a fish. Or a human. Or dinosaurs? I guess even plants are "living things". Sorry if I'm looking way too much into that but.....yea.

    By the way, do you guys think that Mike's recent tweet about "hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia" has anything to do with the puzzle? Wouldn't surprise me if he was just being a trollnoda again.

    12 minutes till the next puzzle piece which will likely be all zeros in the HTML CODE and reveal nothing! :awesome:

    Be ready to solve that shit, and post a picture of the completed piece and grid so we can update! Thanks!
