I did not because technically it is an illegal question. It does not have a yes or no answer.

Probably they would have tossed you off the show for bending the rules but here we are more liberal. Also as I have stated earlier, you will not guess that guys occupation even with 10^40 -1 more guesses.

Yes, you may. Of course, Bob may object to such liberality.

Well of course I will. When you run out again we will talk about setting some limits on the amount of guesses.

Yes, but I think that is called cheating. Do your instructors give you hints?

A better question is with a 10^40 - 1 question limit you want hints too?

Just been catching up on your posts.

bobbym: You say

Do not give up now brothers, I implore you! Unearth the cruel monsters deeds. You are so close! Find out about him that we may all rest comfortably.

and also imply we will still not guess in 10^40 -1 questions.

15. Is he able to find out what internet sites we have visited?

yes,my "instructors" do give me some hints.not all but some.

well you said we wouldn't guess it even if we had that many questions,so i think it's pretty reasonable to give us at least a small hint.

If I give a small hint the game is over. Besides you are not the only one playing. Maybe Bob does not want a hint. Also, I have given tons of hints.

I'm still up for the challenge. But my brain will only take so much.

I have three 'help' problems pending, awaiting my solution; one over a year old.

I feel you want us to solve this one soon.

Possibly, but it is not his concern.

If you are overextended then come back to this later. It will still be here but it is not important.
