Why all this fuss about cookies? I simply wrote a keylistener to listen for ctrl+C. When it picks that up it processed the clipboard (the page's text), performed the shift then wrote the answer to the clipboard. So all I had to do was go ctrl+A, ctrl+C, [click in form], ctrl+V, Enter. :)

thats uselessly complicated. If you (or someone who didn't completed this) will use greasemonkey there is only one thing for completion this level. You need just visit the page, and that's it. My script has only 13 lines and it took me around 10 minutes.

and no, there is nothing with cookies. This is programming level, and not something where you need to find alternative solutions. Good luck ;)

This realy makes me mad! I have a nice working little code. But it always says that my answer is wrong.
Can someone help me an tell me in which format the answer should be.
Is there something wrong with my translation from the number to a character?
An example:
Generated String: 38)65)48)82)81)66)44)52)78)
Shift: -4

answer from my script: 4aDxwb@Ht

another one:
Generated String: 115#80#93#110#106#92#88#66#74#112#64#58#
Shift: 25

answer from my script: 05851737

Can someone please help me with this and tell me why my answer is wrong.

Your code thinks the numbers are hexadecimal, but they are decimal..

I'm having a similar problem. By hand the solutions of the script seem correct but when submitting it says they aren't. Example:

Generated String: 81-85-103-106-104-108-96-
Shift: 18

Result:
cgy|z~r

Am I not formatting it right? Or maybe I misinterpreted Shift because with 0 shift it said it was right (but I submitted it too late). Although from the above code I think that's what shift is supposed to do... some help?

If you had this for exmaple,

Generated String: 81-85-103-106-104-108-96-
Shift: 18

does it have to be
cgy|z~r
c-g-y-|-z-~-r-
c?g?y?|?z?~?r?

or have i got the shift thing wrong too

<edit>i had the shift wrong and the is no seperater, it would be,
?CUXVZN</edit>
