The second day of the week is about over and done with.  Today has been a learning day.  Our very own marketing producer, Jessica, gave a presentation at a local school.  She spoke about working at HI and getting more women into the industry.  It was definitely a good talk. 

I've been getting a lot of forwards from our feedback channels.  I think the thing I like best is how passionate and thoughtful the statements are.  I'm hopeful that we can continue to improve our games.  Certainly with your help, it'll be a bit easier to achieve. 

Have you checked out the newsletter yet?  It might prove interesting.

And, as promised, knowledge. 

- Puzzle 42 Solution -

The clue that we gave initially was:
" Two methods speak to this puzzle; visual cues and elitist thought. "
This tells you the kind of methods you'll need to solve the puzzle, [ the visible speech and "leetspeak" ]

For all [ ASCII characters ] you need to use the [ "leetspeak" alphabet ] to replace them. 
All of the other characters can be deciphered using [ visible speech ]
By performing the various substitutions you'll eventually discover the sentence:

[ Nancy caught the internet scam artist by trapping him in his own web. ]

P.S. I finally fixed my comments, so I'll be able to respond effectively now.  Hooray!  Although I suppose I've got a bit of a backlog to work through.

You used to write little things next to your name like 'and others'. What did that mean?

Well in some regards they're notes, for you, or for the post itself. In others we've left clues... though how they might be used has yet to reveal itself.
