    I'm under the weather today; this lootcrate was well timed!

    Thank you @Kendrik! Happy Thanksgiving/Christmas/Holidays/Decemberween!

    Awesome! I was a bit annoyed I couldn't gift the video game crate, but it looks like this one still hit the mark pretty well. I have but one more question: Renegade or Paragon?

    Hey now, Big Trouble in Little China is not a terrible film.

    I mean, I enjoyed it. It's a great film in the same way that Kung Fury is a great film.

    This may well be the Christmas to end all Christmases. My wife got her visa and will be here, hopefully, next Sunday!

    Thanks Santa! I've no idea what you did but I'm giving you credit for this!

    A lot of them start off like that, but if you give it a few months, they release it to the public or you can find them for comparable prices on ebay. I got the Deadpool one that was also a lootcrate exclusive through Amazon just the other day.

    So after arriving home to the news that my sister-in-law's car died and we would probably need to assist financially, I was also greeted with the news that a package had arrived. I hadn't ordered anything recently, so that could only mean one thing - I had been gifted. And it's a very pretty gift:

    I'm a huge Star Wars nerd, so this is right up my alley. Now I just need to figure out where they're going. Thanks Santa! Your proxy message indicated I'd have something custom and something from overseas, so this is one half down. I'm anxiously awaiting the second!

    I'm sure this isn't saying too much as we have many Santas and Santees residing in our poutine loving neighbors to the North but I am really fricking glad that I don't have to regularly depend on Canadian shipping. Watching my package not reach my Santee for days now has been beyond frustrating.

  • ArcticLancerArcticLancer Best served chilled. Registered User regular
    Where is it "stuck"? Generally out postal system is actually pretty good besides its inability to effectively handle a certain class of mail (padded envelopes, which seem to disappear or arrive in tatters perhaps 20-25% of the time).

  • Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan Registered User regular
    It appeared in the system on Monday with expected delivery yesterday. Then, it updated to be expected today, now it's moved to tomorrow and truthfully it looks like I could have walked the item from the starting location to my Santee's address.

    Hopefully tomorrow will truly be the day it gets delivered.

    I so want to do this one year. As I live in Seattle, I know there are other locals here. Maybe one year. It might be more fun if I could show up at your door step in another country in a santa outfit.

    Edit: Just got an email from Riddler Santa
    no time, so I will just tell you. top leading square is wrong.

    I thought it might be, but couldn't check cause I was in hurry.

    R: 255
    G: 0
    B: 0
    So, I haven't been puzzling as hard or as diligently as I should have been (I blame overeating and my ridiculous lack of self control to prevent overeating), and Riddler Santa is grown angry (or impatient) with my lack of progress.
    Lets see -

    I haven't gotten any word yet this week on any progress.

    Hum, a little hint. All right, you are looking for a word. One might guess the word before you know how you should get the word.

    What you do with the word should be obvious.

    So obvusly, you need to figure out what the alphabet is.

    Riddle Santa
    I notice that the word "obviously" appears to be missing an I and an O, I doubt that was coincidence.
    Since those look a lot like 1 and 0, I'm guessing Binary's coming back to play in this puzzle like it did the last.

    Just a guess here, but the algorithm to convert from top color to bottom color is it as simple as switching 1s for 0s and the other way round? 11111111 (FF) becomes 00000000 (00).
    It doesn't work perfectly with the values I got, but I had my dropper sample set to 5x5 instead of 1x1 pixels, so some of the erroneous values could have been me being sloppy.

    Edit: The word... Is it "Bird"? I have it on good authority that Bird is the word.
