Have you, by any chance, figured out how to get to zone 4? Where you had to solve the crypto part? I've tried checking to see if it was a hash, tried brute forcing it, tried to think it out and noticed that the first part in both ciphertext's (20d916c6c29ee5) are the same...I just can't figure this one out. I don't want the answer, but I'm trying to learn and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks! :)

Which miser are you trying? Heat or Snow?

Yeah, I suppose that would have helped. :P Snow Miser. I'm on zone 3 trying to get to zone 4.

Unfortunately I haven't gotten past zone 1 on SM. Join us on irc, #holidayhack I'll be online in a bit and we can chat about it.

Putting the last touches on my latest job so I'll be hitting this hard tonight.

Hey, sorry I haven't responded sooner. I went down for carpal tunnel surgery, so I wasn't doing much. If you need any help on any let me know. Well, any before 3 on snow or 2 on heat that is. :)
