Google Treasure Hunt 2008 – and some Google App Engine
It's the Norwegian constitution day (or rather was before mid-night), so I'll recapitulate and do some stuff I have been pushing in front of me. First I went through material of SQL Server 2008 BI for a couple of hours and emptied some inboxes (removing all items is the liberating way to go). Then I stumbled over
google treasure hunt.
Arrrrrrrr you ready? Onward to the first puzzle, matey! And good luck!
I got 55x56 and my answer is Here is 4926360926504692838778xxxxxxxxxx (I will not give the actual answer).
The answer was correct (actually I was lucky), so I'm in the contest:

Hope I get the time to follow this up.
I also added "Google App Engine", "Google Treasure Hunt" and "python site:codeplex.com" to my list of google alerts. Once a week, of course, play time is sparse.
http://code.google.com has got to wait for now.
