right... 1 was funny, because the hint was true - I think everyone does that the same way at first...

I dunno what to do with 2 really...

Re: python challenge

two is really easy, but I should learn the builtin functions and not recreate everything by hand. (that's exactly the problem, if you learn python not in the first place, because then you are too lazy to read it all up).
lol and you have to love the hints (with 3 I was searching in the manual and bam there was the hint).

Re: python challenge

I don't think I did 3 right... which part is for the URL? the lowercase or bodyguards?

I'm actually using this to learn python better... (I work good like this)...

Re: python challenge

I dunno, because there are so many small letters, which the condition is true for.
ok, I solve three, but the author is really a bitch wink

Re: python challenge

no think about the exaclty. I guess you did the same mistake as me.
btw. I'm now using php to solve the puzzle, it really hate the language, but at least I do know the standard library.

Re: python challenge

ahahahah, I started laughing when I saw 4... it was very obscure... until I realised the link

ok, four was simple... 5 I don't get... can anyone clue me in as to the "format" (I won't give too much away)

OMG wait I got it *slaps forehead*

edit:
ok, maybe not... I know what to do, but not how to interpret the results... and I need to leave work...

"peak hell" is for later

Re: python challenge

Is there something python-specific about number 5?
I got the first 4 using sed,grep,tr,sort, and a loopy bash script,
but  I don't know what to do with "peak hell"  :?:

Re: python challenge

Re: python challenge

heh. I stopped at 7. It was fun, but I felt I spent enough time on it.

And if you need a non-standard module, then I don't feel bad stopping there. wink

well it's PIL (Python Image Library) - it's *the* image module to use... its just that I had to download the thing (@work) - it took me a bit to realise that...I guess you could always find out a PNG header's length and just open the raw file data...
