    An online riddle contest, there are two competitions:

    www.languid.net/nr/begin.htm

    nr.wireplay.co.uk

    The lower one is new, the upper is old, but the upper has more riddles even though it is incomplete. The lower requires registration, but has new riddles and is being updated.

    I'm on the leaderboard on both, see you there.

    I've forgotten the link to the site. But why don't you paste the number puzzle here and we can all try to figure it out.
