Ok, back again… here's the explanation:
I started to display the letters from all frames on a table. It was enough to know the first frame - the following letters were in cyclic order.
Then, I checked the space difference from letters between columns (above in the table):
A --> E ------ 3
E --> W ------ 16
W --> I ------ 11
From Ian's hint, that the puzzle title was a key, I used the word orange repeatedly, finding the correspondent letter in each column. It was my
reference point. Then, I applied the result above, counting the space from the reference point (in a cyclic way, in the same column) to find out the
And so I got: TIMEWAITSFORGNOMON
Thanks, Ian! You gave me a lot to think in the last few days… I started to play with the lights (hi, Static!
) and then I, quite possibly, have made all sort of
combinations and calculations with letters. I also developed the special skill to spell the alphabet without the Q. And when Ian gave that hint about
the key in the title, I fell so tempted to see the movie
