A random puzzle to solve...

Yeah, I've been MIA for a bit. Lots to post about, still deciding where to start. Before we actually get to a *gasp* meaningful (or at least non-fluff) post, I thought I'd throw this out there.

I came across this puzzle on Boing Boing earlier and much to my chagrin there is no solution provided so I figured I'd put it up here and see if anyone who came across it could come up with a different solution (I did email my solution to the address they have at the bottom of the story though so maybe they'll shed some light on this problem...).

Anyways, I like puzzles like these and I figured that some of you non-Boing-Boing readers might get a kick out of it as well.



Take a stab at it and then see what you think of my answer. I'm curious to know if anyone sees any glaring logical errors or stupid math mistakes (the bane of my puzzle-solving existence).
