ojofuffo

Ojofuffo

A colleague of mine sent me this link http://www.freestuffhotdeals.com/hacker/1.html, and being a puzzle addict myself I happily answered the riddles but that fuckin ojofuffo kept me stuck in page 19… anyways I finally got to the last page and saw granny dancing.

SPOILERS! Below are the answers to all the pages:

The first page gives all the hint you’ll ever need, and you have to be really dumb if you cant get to the next page. Just replace 1 with 2.

Page 2 has the word “two”, follow the pattern to go to the next level… replace 2 with three.

To get to page 4 just replace three with iv. Think that’s self explanatory, since iv is the roman numeral of the number four.

You’ll get the word ruof which is the number four spelled backwards. Since the next page you want to go to is 5, you have to type the word five in reverse as well, so type in evif to go to page 5.

You’re in page five and have this ffiivvee glaring at you. You just have to see the pattern; you want to get to page 6, double every letter and you’ll get ssiixx.

666666. No its not an evil sign or something. Just follow the pattern, no need to compute… just type in 7 seven times. 7777777

uranus is the seventh planet in the solar system, so you have to ask what the eighth planet is… and the only answer is neptune.

acht is number 8 in German language… so it’s telling us to give the number 9 in German which is neun, pronounced as noin.

sept, once again you just have to see the pattern, September is the ninth month and October is the tenth month but you have to just type in oct since the clue is abbreviated.

Next page will give you a 10th of spades playing card, the next level you’re aiming is 11, and if you’re talking about cards, there is no eleven, but there is jack.

Page 11 just shows you eLeVeN, so all you need to do is follow suit and type in the number twelve, but make sure you’re following the pattern, notice that the word eLeVeN has caps alternately, so you have to type in twelve in the same pattern… tWeLvE

144, now you have to do some math in here. 144 is the product of 12 x 12, since we want the page 13, you have to compute for 13 x 13 = 169

You’ll only get a black page on level 13, so you have the highlight the center and you’ll get the word number13, so level 14 means typing in number14, no space between number and 14.

catorce, is the number 14 in Spanish… so the number 15 is quince

James Buchanan, is the fifteenth president of the USA, and so it follows that the site is asking for the sixteenth president who is none other than Abraham Lincoln. just type in lincoln.

sedecim is number 16 in latin, and you know the rule… number 17 in Latin is septendecim

10001 is 17 in binary. You just have to find the conversion of the decimal number 18 into binary. The binary numeral system (base 2 numerals) represents numeric values using two symbols, and the only numbers you’ll be seeing are 0 and 1.
<-- this is the long way to compute.
Based on this computation/formula you will gather that the typical way to count numbers in binary is 1 2 4 8 16 32 64 and so on. You just have to put 1s and 0s in the sequence to add up to 18, another thing is you count it backwards. See the table below to get to the 10010 binary value of 18.



(Just remember that 1 has a value and 0 is null, so you’ll notice that only the numbers 2 and 16 are marked with 1… so 2+16 = 18)

argon is the 18th element in the periodic table of elements, and potassium is the 19th element. (Now, this one makes you remember your chemistry teacher and how you hated her when she asked you to memorized all the elements and its corresponding number in the table)

ojofuffo, now this fuckin word kept me stuck! How could this meaningless word would mean anything like 19 or be related to 20? I’ve tried different languages but no, so grrr I asked the answer from leslie, and she said the answer is uxfouz. Ok what the heck! I can’t just accept that the answer is uxfouz, there has to be logic. Then when you see the logic you’ll realize that ojofuffo is not meaningless afterall. It’s a sequence wherein you replace an alphabet letter by shifting one letter forward. So a=b, b=c, c=d, and so on. nineteen becomes ojofuffo and twenty becomes uxfouz.

icosagon is the 20 sided polygon. Remember the rule of naming polygons with greek prefixes. Anyways, the 21 sided polygon is called icosihenagon.

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ... 10946. This is the famous fibonacci sequence (adding the last 2 digits to get the next number). 10946 is the 21st number in the sequence so you have to compute to get the 22nd number which is 17711. The formula is usually Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2

Aoozy, Booyy, Cooxy, ... Vooey… look for the pattern, and you’ll see the answer. First letter in the word is capitalized and follow the normal sequence of the alphabet. Next letter to V in the alphabet is W, it is consistent that the 2nd and 3rd letters is o, so we now have Woo. The fourth letter is backwards, from z to a, hence from vooey, the next letter to e is d, and we have the word Wood. The last letter is always y, so the answer would be Woody.

Hope you enjoyed it! =)

The concept of "infinity" is not like "ojofuffo". You know the meaning of infinity but you cannot comprehend it. But, you neither know the meaning of "ojofuffo", nor you can comprehend it. Whenever you assign a meaning to "ojofuffo", you relate it to an already existing concept, and it comes into the universe of existence.

now i get it! thats how it works!
being a hacker doesnt mean u have to be as cleaver as others do
but to be as resourceful as u can be..

like this one...
u dont have to think hard...
theres still people who can do the thinking for u.
but u just need to find them!

wahahahaha!

maybe im not a hacker,
im just a cheater!

^_^ good day!

Anonymous said...

wtf?!?! the way you doled out the answers, you make it seem like you know all these things by heart (the binary system, the german language, the naming of polygons...). you should've just 'fessed up that you got help from the wonderful internet!

Anonymous said...

well done for completing the puzzle, but I still dont understand how ojofuffo relates to 19 and how 20 is uxfouz. i read your explanation but am still lost!!

Jaxie said...

Thanks, I feel dirty that I cheated, but I doubt I would have gotten the ojofuffo or fibonaci one ever in my life!!

cherry blossom girl said...

hahaha! gosh i hate cheating :( good explanations on the answers though. :)

Anonymous said...

You don't need to know much binary surely? given 1+1=10 and you are given 10001, add 1 and you get 10010.

Anonymous said...

I got head ache on this thing. I think no one can think the answers on the last 3 sites. But its fun, I enjoy it.

Anonymous said...

Buchanan and ojofuffo got me.
icosagon got me becuase according to Wikipedia you need to insert "kai" (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygons#Naming_polygons)
The rest I got.

Anyone sent an email?

Anonymous said...

wow got to page 14 by myself ^_^ needed google for the rest :D

Anonymous said...

i did i completed this task and got to 23!

does that mean i am a hacker????

Anonymous said...

well done for ojofuffo ! obviously google might be a cheating mean for the whole test, but it brought me to your link :) andwas fun to get further (without your link :)).

NoSYaJ said...

why post all the answers? the puzzle was fun. wawa lang yung huli na sasagot ng puzzle and makita tong blog mo. di na mag eenjoy. try this one out.

http://thewicked.sgblogging.com/

wag mo lang din sana makita yung sagot sa isang site. hints lang sana ok na. pag sagot na nakita eh nakakawalang gana na. :)

E.A. Taopih said...

(adding the last 2 digits to get the next number)

--> this should be "adding the last two numbers." a digit is just one numeral. ;)

Anonymous said...

hahaha... it's a good thing that i found your blog... the only thing that i did not get is that freeking ojofuffo!!!

Bren Jason said...

yeah the only one i couldnt get was ojofuffo as well. the binary and fibonaccie ones are easy if you're a computer engineering major.

gundu said...

Really Good but not tuff
i stucked only in 13

Rohitdev said...

well think like a hacker & u could have solved the puzzle.....using any tool like teleport pro.......within 5 minutes

chilti said...

ha ha , I got stuck at that ojofuffo, and got you...it was horrible to avoid your next answers and finding out them myself..This is good

Erick said...

I dont want to brag or anything. But I did finish it without looking at your answers. For me buchanan was the most difficult (as I am not american). It was definitely fun. Oh! and for those who dont understand how ojofuffo. Just get a piece of paper and write in a line all the alphabet and then put a cross under all the letters that form the word "nineteen", like this:

A B C D E F ....
- - - - X - ....

Then look at the letters to the right of those you marked. Tadah!.

sanyawadee said...

i got stuck on page 20 and i sent the link to all friends to ask for help..then a friend sent me your blog.
excellent! and i guess you probably are one of those who wrote this game? :D

Bharani said...

It is good to see your explanation but it is not good to show all the answers right away....

Madhusudhan said...

hey sept thing doesn't work that way ... they are latin rootonyms .. oct for anything that has eight ... like an 8 sided polygon is an octagon ... hope ya get the correction

madhu said...

Hi,

As most of them was stuck with ojff.... but completed with the help of google....i understand ojff..relates to 20 but WHY A POLYGON ??? any idea...

sushil said...

every thing was ok because of some logic was there to go to the next .
the thing that put me in trouble was that i was not knowing spanish and germen..

Rajani said...

I got stuck at 13...tried the hexadecimel of black #000000...but that just got me to this link: http://www.freestuffhotdeals.com/hacker/#000000.html

And- I thought the game was over :(

ojofuffo it simply means

n before o
i before j
n before o
e before f
t before u
e before f
e before f
n before o

means nineteen

this is the best i can explain.

shobhit said...

vinny said...

Eduardo said...

I win... no cheatings involved...
I must say you really put my head muscle to work... Stupid polygons... Blast then all!!!
I was almost right when a tried to decipher de ojofuffo, i was like:
"ok O+1=P..."
but nothing happens...
"hmm, O-1?"
Ta-dáááá...

I use to talk like this with my friends...

Very nice man!!

Sameer said...

A very innovative idea, the toughest one was ojofuffo for n (n+1=o) i(i+1=j) n(n+1=o) e(e+i=f) t(t+1=u) e(e+i=f) e(e+i=f) n(n+1=o) for nineteen, as uxfouz is for twenty. Thanks for a lovely puzzle. It was truly a remarkable experience. Keep it up! It took me 6 min to solve it.....Woody !

Priya said...

Hello,

The Puzzle was great.
I agree with....
being a hacker doesnt mean u have to be super cleaver or something
but to be as resourceful as u can be..is the trick.

Chandra said...

Hi It was wonderful i solved it with help of the google and started passing this all my friends when one of them came up with link which had all answers, which was annoying but any way i enjoyed it... would like to do somemore if any one has any...

Abhinav said...

hey
i did solve the puzzle in one go :)

Medjay said...

finally i did it but i still don't understand ojfuffo mean what please anyone explain me simply

Valentina said...

write ojfuffo down together with nineteen like this:

o j o f u f f o
n i n e t e en

Don't you see how the letters correspond?

o follows n in the alphabet, j follows i and so on.
So you just have to write down twenty and then add one letter in the alphabet.
