Just type the code in, including the last 4 required letters and you'll get it!  ;)

Unless they used extra letters or forgot letters when they were solving the puzzle. The answer should make sense or it is probably wrong.

I am just stumped on the last 4 letters of the third puzzle, not making sense. ARRGH! nice puzzle work.
It makes sense, but especially after you click on it.  I think it's supposed to get a little more difficult at each step.  
Last year's puzzle was more challenging, not that that's a good thing.  This year's goes a lot faster.  But it does has a bit of the devious Jeff in it.

Yeah, I got it. Actually had it hours ago but must have typed it wrong. Got it finished now. Thanks again for a fun contest.

If it doesn't bring you to a logical step, or the end, it is not yet correct. Keep trying. I got a little frustrating for me too. Just keep at it and re-check your typing over and over. The instructions are accurate and if you get it right, you will move on. It is very clear when you wind up at the right place.

I'm fairly confident none of yous will call me a simpleton so I'll take a chance here. First time I've ever tried a contest but decided this one just might be simple enough for me.

1) i can only find 22 sponsors
2) 1 sponsor cannot  will not be found

What simple things am i doing wrong?

You may be looking for the wrong sponsor. Because im a little bit evil, i left one out on purpose so you wouldnt know which one.. There are still 23 in the puzzle. Not sure how many you must find to reveal the secret message, or if i do, im not telling.

I finished last night, no printer so I had to figure a way to put the puzzle in a drawing program so I could circle the words as I found them.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to the Contest Sponsors
