^ :lol: It's not sour grapes, it's just that the riddle didn't make sense. I also didn't see it until just before I posted my response. Add to this the fact that I managed to confuse the previous riddle with the last one, and i'm sure you will realise my confusion. This is what happens when you miss just one or two posts while reading many others. Doh! :facepalm:

All rightie, mates, try this un. I got it from a clever friend, who claimed that it could be solved by pre-school children in 5-10 minutes, by programmers in an hour, and by people with higher education in an insinuated much longer period of time. I got it in less than five minutes.

correctamundo, my friend. i didn't have a clock on myself, but that's about the same as my time. You have won... my respect. Not much of a prize, I'm afraid, since you already had it, but whaddayagonnado.

It helps that I have a timer app on my computer. It's a tiny widget that stays on top of open windows, so I never have to go searching for it.
